Only mentions DLC. What could it be.

Cool. Wales arrived. I was thinking it would arrive next week.

hey, in Wales there's no Dusk option in the times of day! and Sunset's wet and dry conditions have the same sky. so there's just

  • Daytime (clear, heavy rain)
  • Sunset (cloudy)
  • Night (clear, heavy rain)
  • ugh, very disappointing

so Wales has just 5 different lighting conditions. by comparison, Germany and Monte Carlo has 6, and Sweden had 7.

of the non-DLC locations, Argentina has 8, Australia 9, NZ 9, Poland 10, Spain 10, and NE 10

Wales is starting to roll out in some platforms/regions 🙂

 

In any case, join myself and Jon Armstrong as we tackle the countryside, tonight at 19.00 BST / 14.00 EST 🙂

It is indeed for steam, very nice.
Made something for those still waiting:

EDIT: Although I have to say, the weather selection is lacking...
No dawn or dusk. No light rain. Just heavy rain or dry and just Daylight, Night or Sunset.
And daylight/cloudy/wet is not possible.
kinda expected more from Wales atmosphere, I miss the D4 conditions where you could set time and weather separately and had more combos

1000x yes.

maybe one day, once Grid is done or something.

I would totally pay extra for that kind of stuff. It should have been in the base game, but still. I want it that badly.

The various options for weather and time of day were probably the best part in D4. They gave you the opportunity to schedule an entire rally in a realistic way and, even though the environments looked always the same, the changes in the sky made the stages look always different. It was really immersive and, with all its different combinations, made me feel like I was in a real rally

I think as more and more resources are pulled away onto GRID, there will less detail/features seen in the future.  If there is a season 3 or even 4, expect 4 to have stick-figures and bruumm brummm brummm for audio effects.  Its life of a DiRT release 🙂

I could try the Rallycross start line revving sound 😅

Barely DiRTy Gossip (Jon Armstrong was at the circuit, so that is kind of a connection), but I was at Curborough last week for the 6R4.net track day. Some awesome Group B cars...

Yeah, that was Nigel Mummery. Damage was a lot worse than it looked. Rear clam needs a bit of TLC and a couple of suspension bits are bent. Nigel has been rallying that car for a good few years, it will be back on the road soon!

I was gutted though, as I was going to ask for another ride in it before the end of the day!

@tbtstt Are they your photos and would it be okay if I dropped a few in the Roadbook on Friday?

Would love to see that car in action some day. I know it's rare as hen's teeth and didn't never see any real rally action, but that is one badass Ford.

That is reckoned to be the best example of the RS1700T in the world (and the most genuine in terms of specification). It's absolutely spotless outside...

48296778632_38d780e3bb_h.jpg

...and inside. The owner of the RS1700T (Brian Betteridge) also owns an RS200:

Which is the cleanest RS200 I have ever looked around:

36028790992_5d284179b5_h.jpg

He didn't bring the RS200 this year though. 

The RS1700T is super cool, but I'd still rather have an RS200!
