It was intended to look fake 😄  the title says it all anyway.. I even got the 4th week wrong, it was supposed to say W7.

 

 

RIGGS, YOU FOOL!!! My heart nearly jumped out of my chest when I saw that image! I had my arms in the air screaming: "YEEEEEEEEEEEAH!!!" for about two seconds! Than I saw the words 'Fan-made' and became enraged and soon after that depressed... Thanks for that! Really appreciate it!

Getting all those video clips through licensing would be a nightmare 😅

I... I believe you have my stapler... It doesn't bind up as much.

Mandatory fun fact about Swingline being forced to produce red staplers after that movie due to high demand.

Yep! And TGI Friday axing "flair" because of the film!

Please don't take revenge on the livery request 😄 

I enjoyed a lot doing that season 3 clip. Things went right during its development, it's a personal wishlist (though not exclusive and still missing other wishes) and it also gave me a lot of nostalgia from that specific rally era. I think attempting to replicate that rally era again, this time with the current technology in DR2.0, would not only be amazing but also I believe it would become a cash flow and therefore a sales success. Not talking just about the DLC itself, but also an extra strong reason for those who didn't buy DR2.0 yet to do it.

There's almost an immediate interest whenever people in general see those cars in a rally game. Everyone knows those cars, even if just visually. And since DR2.0's physics model, graphics and sound is the best in this genre, man would that sell.

@BotaCalor get back on discord 🙂

Although i am not really a fan of the PS3 and PS4 gen WRC games, the career mode seems to be interesting developed and I think parts of it can be well implemented in the DiRT series, but possible even better in the DiRT series, because you not forced to the WRC scheduele and have next to rally also rallycross. 

Managing a team and driver career

I understand that it is forced you need to manage a team as well in WRC8, but in real life that is a lot of times not the case. I think it would be better you would have the option to also manage a team. But a lot of drivers have a sponsor package and pay a seat for a championship or event. F.e. Anton Marklund has a family team, but drives for GCK.

Choosing which events your participate in. 
I think this is a good feature, but for example if i choose to a full ERX Supercars, I should also be able to do a few one off WRX events or a local event or a rally championship. But I shouldn't be able to do the Höljes WRX events, because than also the ERX event takes place at Höljes. Also the amount of events you participate in depends on regulations and on the amount of sponsorship package.

Money / Sponsorship
There is no talk about it how it works.

But for DiRT I would imagine you can sign with sponsors and the possible maximum amount they want to sponsor is 850.000

if you rent a team/car than (depending which team/car) f.e.
the costs for an EuroRX event = 100.000
the costs for an WorldRX event = 125.000

It is not possible to do the full WRX season, because that costs are to high = 1.125.000, and you can only do 6 events.
So instead you do a full EuroRX (6x100.000 = 600.000) and two WRX events (2x125.000) and have 8 events for the season planned. You can also invest money in testing/sponsor days to upgrade the car and stuff. 

Also in this case the livery editor will get a good valuable position again. It can go in different ways. If you have Red Bull as main sponsor, there will be certain set of location where the sponsor logos will be displayed, but with alternatives. Also you can than choose f.e. if the Red Bull stickers need to have a chrome, glossy or matte effect. The base of the car still can have different lay-outs and colors as well. Becuase 

Maybe during the season you will get an invitation for a GroupB historic rallycross event and maybe a sponsor gives extra money to enter in a local event. Or maybe get a call te replace a injured WRX driver (f.e. what Joni Wiman did for Niclas Grönholm).

ofcourse you can do a lot of paremeters. If you rent a Hansen Peugeot, than maybe a seasons costs double or triple compared if you rent the older less competive Ford Fiesta from the less experienced Xite Racing team. Basically you have two parameters here for a team (A = experienced top team / E = beginner team) and for the car (A = Car well mainted and latest upgrades / E = Older car with no upgrades. Under it there are more parameter

But maybe also can go for the option to manage a team. You buy a older Polo or Fiesta for 300.000 euro. Than the costs for the events are lower, but you also need to repair the car costs and do maintenance or buy upgrades. You start probably as an E team and with a E car, but ofcourse this will be more upgraded (what already happened in D4 and DR2), but when upgraded also results in extra costs a season (because experienced team or upgrades costs money). So maybe in the beginning the salary is just 100.000 a season, but when it is a top team, maybe it costs 500.000 a year, next to the investments for training and stuff and hiring more people.

I vote @JorritVD for President.

@PJTierney I saw what your wrote there at the bottom of this week's blog...🧐

Less likely = DR 3.0.

Highly likely = New DLC season announcement with some spicy cars in there.

Give me the latter, please. You don't need to create the release screenshot anymore as @Riggs already created one for you.

if it was a hint at announcing DR 3.0, he wouldn't have said it'd be a big month for DR 2.0 😉

also, they put these games out every 2+ years... why would they announce a sequel just 6 months after release!?!

Aside from the enticing Season 3 / VR (?) hints, what a superb photo that is of the C3 R5.

One of the first things I did when I started here was grab every approved screenshot we have (about 400 or so) and put them all in a big folder, and rename them to a more cohesive system.

 

There's some great ones in there that I hadn't seen much as a player, like these 🙂

DS21, RS200 and Stratos 💓  Some of my favourites.

There's much more to rally cars than just Imprezas and Fiestas.

@PJTierney This is why we need a photomod 🧐 . Awesome pictures.

I want it too but it's not going to happen 😉

Fortunately, people are putting together some amazing stuff even with just the replay angles. The screenshot thread's one of my favourites across the whole forum.

Club web pages, still at testing?
You dont have professionals who can make it happen or are they at summerholiday?
Championship limit is 9 and now there is Wales which was at selection when it released, now it confuses clubs and you can do anything for them because of that error 500!
Maby you should do also something else than look those fancy screenshots and put those to your twitter ☹️

Does anybody know why the Lancia Stratos is in the H3 category?? It was never in competition with the Sierra Cosworth or the BMW M3 which were a decade later. If anything it should be in the H2 category up against the MK2 Escorts as that would have been its competition in real life back in the 70s.

No, it's one of my biggest bugbears too - I've never been able to get an answer as to why this really weird decision was made and felt sure it would be corrected between D4 and DR2.

Worse, it's compounded by adding the Datsun 240Z, which was even earlier than the Stratos.

Instead, we have a mish mash class I never use with a mixture of early 80s Group 4s, early 70s cars and two late 80s/early 90s Group A cars.

Ya I was doing one of the daily challenges today with the h3 class in Spain and I drove the Stratos and I thought what the hell is that car doing in the same class as the m3 and sierra when they were at least 10 years apart, makes no sense at all! I have seen a lot of arguments  about the evo 6 being in the group a class, it would never have rallied against the other cars in that class but technically it is a group a car, I would have loved if Codemasters had included both an evo 6 and an evo 3,  with the evo 6 being put into the class with the forthcoming 2001 Subaru and focus wrc and the an evo 3 put into the group a class, which would be the right thing to do. I personally think an evo 3 would have been awesome in the game and that’s coming from a Subaru fan😁
