DiRTy Gossip

Recommended Posts

Pretty random question, but will there still be the possibility to remove the drivers' hands and also the virtual steering wheel from the cockpit view like in Dirt Rally? I think it really makes it more immersive.

@KickUp

1 - It will be possible to watch our Modded Skins ingame ( i.e. Garage / Selecting the Car ), other than just when we are driving the Cars ( like in DR )?

2 - If i select to play with Sim handling, my Career Profile will be locked to that handling, or can we jump between handlings, whenever we want, with the same Profile ( and there's no need to do 2 Profiles )?

3 - Does Nicky Grist and Jen Horsey recorded the Pace Notes on the D-Box ( at least for Career, since it's fixed Stages and not generated ones )? Can we still feel the rush, or calm, in theirs voices, depending how we are driving?

4 - The only difference between Casual and Sim modes are the handling or, as example, Sim mode has more complex car setup settings, and Casual more simplified ones?


Thanks for being on the Forums answering our questions :)

That's the plan, yes.

Cj9. Not sure if its a livery, maybe a render for a wallpaper ?  Vatanen's 81 Rothmans Mk2 livery and Mikkola's 79 RAC Eaton Yale livery available here.

All we are missing is Clark's 76 Cossack livery ( but I believe there is a work in progress with a member on here   ;) ! )

Enjoy !

Is the same ego engine used on dirt rally?
I think all of us prefer head 2 head or special stages over rallyx and landrush.
What about raid? Trucks more fun than buggies.
Your stage is only for rally stages (point to point) or also includes closed circuits?
When the car is totally destroyed, you have to buy another one or repair it magically?
Soundtracks- Will happen the same as happened with the expired licenses on dirt2?
What about anti cheat?
I wonder how many daily tournaments won porkhammer ... you have to write on a paper so they are not forgotten?
Game need ranking table in addition to the leaderboards times...like this http://www.atpworldtour.com/es/rankings/singles .
And please! This time put all the countries for nationality profile
Im from Uruguay...Really annoying see "other"

1. No, copyright restrictions with the manufacturers prevent us from allowing sharing. 
2. You can jump between the handling models at any time but not during a championship. 
3. They did sit in the D-Box to record. Perhaps not as much rush in the voice as in DiRT Rally as the stages are procedural but there is movement. 
4. You can have casual handling and very complex setup if you want or sim handling and basic setup, or a mix of whatever, it's really up to how you want to play.

On the off chance of catching @KickUp again :)

Has the 'slamming down the gears' braking "cheat" been fixed?   It seems to be very apparent that if you want more braking, slam the gears down hard, no noticeable repercussions in DR :(

- Improved Ego engine but not a new one. 
- No Raid this time. I want to do desert racing properly and we need new tech to do it. 
- Your Stage is Rally only
- Damage repair depends on your difficulty 
- Yes, music licenses eventually expire
- We are improving the anti cheat
- We have commissioned a plaque for Porkhammer 
- We have new ranking competitions for you to compete in
- Sorry about your flag, I'll see what I can do

@KickUp
1) Will the career progression require that we participate in all driving modes, or will it be possible to advance in just the rally discipline only (e.g. a tiered, unlock enough points to continue to the next tier style)?
2) Will the environment change depending on the tier / level of competition? Eg spectator density / service park size etc?
3) Will older cars carrying over from prior games be remodelled for Dirt4? (E.g will texture mapping issues / limitations on these cars be fixed up)?
Thank you!!

2 Quick questions.
1. Will there be a FOV slider for consoles?
2. Can we set the timer without popups on splits?

1) You can do Rally only and get to the end but to 100% complete you will need to do all disciplines
2) Yes, that is the plan. 
3) Yes, we are improving all car models.

1) Unlikely as FOV affects frame rate too much on console
2) not sure what you mean by this.

Splits in D:R were right in the line of vision.  I think he wants an option to place/disable

@KickUp, as you still seem to be up posting (unless you're asleep now!), I'll repost this from earlier that I was wondering about:

With the tile-based approach, is it possible to do wide open vistas/big changes in height? One of the nice things about DiRT Rally (and previous DiRT games) were the wide open areas, but I can imagine that making tiles stick together and render off into the distance may be mutually incompatible!

I like it when you can see a bit of distance outside of the tracks in the Australia demo footage, it makes it feel less like tunnels of walls/smoke and mirrors to hide the tiling.

Related to this: will there be any unique tiles to each area? For example, previous Australia stages in McRae/DiRT often featured either a road train truck or a piece of pipeline. These sort of features make the tracks feel a bit less copy-and-pasted. Are you looking to put in unique-ish elements to help the tracks feel more alive/natural?

It's very interesting stuff. And it seems to load the stages faster than Racecraft (the game on Steam that auto-generates whole F1 style circuits from variables you choose).

The thing that bugs me about FOV in console racing games (Namely Forza Motorsport, Horizon isn't as bad) is that the FOV is ridiculously huge. Most people want to zoom in, which I don't believe would hinder performance, and given the Vsync and frame pacing shouldn't make it speed up either. Why not just set a maximum limit?
Unless I'm wrong, a higher FOV shoves more stuff in frame to try and render right?

Basically, yes.

Will we get painful bumps and sidebumpers (those might have to be softened a bit from DR) again? I loved how hard the terrain itself was in DR. In the Australia footage, the terrain does seem quite a bit softer but maybe it's just the location.

Will the snow be soft like in Sweden in DR? Has that been changed in any way?

With the "set pieces" in the stage generator, are they just pre-made "objects" or are they like, calculated in? If so are there "variances" to every set piece? Does, for example, a 45 degree bend always have the same length, width and height?

I've got to say I've been getting a bit more excited every day, especially reading your answers @KickUp. Thank you taking the time to answer our questions, just gives us an indication on how committed you guys are. <3

I think you might be in the minority on that one, mate.  :D

Hi @KickUp cheers for all the questions you have been answering.
pretty much the only questions i have are will you be keeping clutch override, and will the issue with random setups that seems to still happen in dirt rally be sorted out, because it seems to happen from time to time and if you get a random setup on a daily it makes it pretty much impossible to set a decent time
oh and will you be setting a pre order on steam, because it says preorder on the dirt4game.com/uk site but when you go to steam there is no option

Thanks
