@JZStudios A couple to check out are Mantis Burn Racing (I've tried it and it's good) and Dangerous Driving (haven't tried but decent reviews) 

Oh. Never actually been much of a fan of top down racing. Dangerous Driving is so far up Burnout 3's butt that it forgot to do anything interesting like polish the game. It also has that default UE4 look I hate. Apparently the controls aren't very tight, there's no real destruction to the cars, and since it's apparently such an indie title, they couldn't manage to find any free music or create a few tracks of their own, so there's just literally no music whatsoever in the game.

Wow, that first one's Steam video nearly gave me a headache from the audio.

There is a mod for BeamNG.drive which recreates Pikes Peak, in both full gravel and full tarmac configurations. It's not as good as DiRT Rally IMHO, but it's something.

The Dirt Rally one is a shrunk down version, so having the complete thing in BeamNG is pretty cool. The guy said he made it from topological data and Google street view, so it's relatively accurate. There's also... Road America or Atlanta... I forget. I wish more laser scanned tracks and stuff would be put in Beam.

But the cool thing about Beam (Which I'm not sure Dirt did) is that the altitude actually affects the air density so you have less downforce and less power at the top. They just need to work more on brake and tire thermals.

 

Also, @PJTierney Have you seen Dirtfish? I already asked, but is it any different to Dirt 4?

The DiRT Rally version is shorter? Never noticed that. I always assumed it was the full lenght. I could more or less recognize the same turns and places in both games.

Some of you are ignoring Jon's statements of "new location" some weeks ago, which I think he means a rally one.

interestinggggg I did not know about this. context?

I would very like there to be a new location or two but don't want to get my (or anyone else's) hopes up. I was quite disappointed when only 1/3 season 2 locations was rally.

(it's not a criticism of RX. I like RX. I started watching it because of the Dirt series. I just like driving rally more. also... another rally location adds more stuff than an RX one. ten laps on a new RX track kind of covers it for me. but it takes a lot more than 10 runs to master a rally stage... and each rally location has 2 long stages - 4 if you count reverse. in addition, there's a much higher number and variety of rally cars to use... ok I'll shut up now lol)

He even said "a couple of new locations" but that was after speaking of Wales, so I guess that was aimed at Greece and Finland. I don't think 'new' is a keyword in this to be honest. 

 

Edit: Although, I still think there is a tiny tiny chance we will see a completely new rally location by the end of all this. Maybe.

Do you have a context for that? Much as I’d like to see it (because the thought of 4 or 5 RX locations makes me sad) I can’t see any more than the 2 updated rally locations. And I’m super excited for those two anyway.

It was on some interview during Down Rally i think, i cant really remember if it was before or after.

I'm downloading the first one now, looks like it might be a lot of fun! A little too dinky and pixellated for my tastes but giving it a go anyway.

But the second one looks hugely promising!! And the designer has form with making Absolute Drift. Nice one, thanks!!

I wonder if the Old Mill rally sprint stage will be in this.  IRL its not much, but it would be a great test area beyond a beyond a bunch of cones on tarmac.  None the less, it will be interesting to see if there are new spectator camera positions.

Spectator camera positions in Dirtfish?

 

On another note, being able to place cones/barrels as you wish in the area would make for some great potential to create rally sprints. Ahh, one can dream :classic_blush:

This is my thought: I am thinking that there might be a new rally location at the end of season four, but I think that Finland and Greece (with some more rallycross tracks) is most likely.

The last Group B RX daily at Catalunya was a remarkable one for me. I knew that I had no idea where the joker lap entry would be on this circuit so I thought I'd need a few practice laps to figure that out. Klicked 'start' by mistake. Ok, then I needed to look out for the entry during the run, but I was too focused and I completely forgot. As I crossed the finish line I unlocked the 'Clown Car' achievement and I couldn't understand how this is possible. I checked the circuit in TT mode to at least try to understand what happened and I realised that I had done joker laps every single lap. 

I think at this point Tommy Lee Jones is inevitable.

The amount of Steam data that can be scraped by the public is always very annoying.

ok, so this is probably my favourite post on the forum now... (also, good to see you're still popping in once in a while) but in my defence:

there are fewer locations remaining to be announced and released, so it's easier to guess which ones they will be.

and at least for me, having a better idea of what's coming will not make the announcement of new content any less exciting for when said content is actually released. in other words, surprises can be a little overrated.

I definitely echo the last paragraph here - it's proper gossip material without actually telling us anything. You've not quite gone to the Creative Assembly level of "put purposely misleading titles against everything" yet, so it's nice to know that things are being worked on; doesn't lessen my excitement for the actual announcement.

I changed job role, I have a little less time to look at the forums.  There is a constant temptation to make some fake depots and branches, just to keep it interesting.  I do enjoy reading the guesses people make, and sometimes mailing on correct guesses to the teams involved.

There are some other annoyances with the Steam data, like people making guesses of a game's sales based on scraped data because they are usually inaccurate due to a lot of factors (giveaways, free weekends, refunds, etc).

Aha, so there are guesses who are correct. Now it depends which one 🧐😋

your wit and good humour are always very welcome! 

deliberately creating wild goose chases would be hilarious and amazing, though I think I would only appreciate it in retrospect.

yes those kind of estimations are always silly, hadn't thought of that
