S201 anyone?? Or s22b anyone??

  • Body is 201 characters too short.
Such a horrendous looking special edition. Mechanically one of the best classic shape Imprezas to leave the production line, cosmetically one of the worst! The most fugly classic Impreza is still the Casa Blanca...


That is Subaru Pampeza that has nothing to do with Impreza.

The situation seems a bit quiet otherwise the early access has come to an end so the game would seem to terminate and to have implemented and realised what rally fans and CM fans had been keenly waiting for since DiRT 3.

We miss our fellow Lee who had been so cruel to us by throwing unfathomable hints at us that made the game unexpectedly reveal itself at the end of April. LOL ( I bet the game testers were cruel too :smile: 

God time flies too quick...

I like when you revisit a Youtube video or something you saw when it came out and realize, "Good lord, that was 5 years ago?"

We weren't that mean! We didn't know when it was releasing either!

For some background, in November we basically tested the handling and some stages. There were no menus and not all the stages of Greece, monte or Wales were there, and some didn't have pace notes. Also played on Lydden in some rally cars.

In November we basically got what everyone got at the start of early access.

So it was quite funny watching the hints being dropped from the other side of things! One of my favourites was when Lee wrote a codies weekly update, which had a piece about 'that car', and just above it was Dirt 3 concept art of the Audi Quatrro. Nobody picked up on it!

Haha: get that all too often! Speaking of which, I can't believe that...

...the day at CM was over a year ago! As @RallyDriven said, what we saw was so disjointed in terms of front end menus etc. there wasn't many spoilers we could deliver on that front. We did at least get to find out about #ThatCar though.

Not seen as much of DiRT Rally as I would have liked in the last year. Hopefully they will confirm a console release and I can catch up with the rest of you!

I think the more blatant teasing, or promoting gossip as it were, any community testers really did was about the cars, or rather the liveries, for the 2001 Impreza and Focus. 
In saying the Focus would have an official(ish) livery, but not the one everyone wanted (Martini).
Which had lots of guesses before the test car livery finally showed up.

Mind you, I'm sure the people who went to Codies actually signed NDA's and such.
That's not been the case with the 0.75, 0.8 and 1.0 community tests, but we're honourable little peeps.  :p

So any official (-ish or otherwise) liveries coming with the WW cars? :P
Perhaps. Maybe even the most official outside of Rally Cross.
*whirls hands like an evil hypnotist*
Who knows what will actually be released though.
Paul's openly admitted a bunch of the liveries they've made in-house had to be binned at the last minute for licensing reasons.

well we know steam workshop is now confirmed for dirt rally B)
k, but what can be done with it? liveries? cars? tracks??
No, no and no. 
It was confirmed months ago that none of those would be possible in such an official capacity.
Cars and liveries in particular just aren't going to happen due to licensing which both Codemasters and Steam would be responsible for as curators.

I would love for this time next year to start hearing rumors of DiRT Rally 2, not an release to soon.  I'm sure the console version will be out the door by April.  No sense in doing a PCars 2 move and getting everyone upset, even though that's how development works.

Maybe a few small DLCs between now and console release for us PC users and console version will be a deluxe edition right from the start, with all DLC included.  

I would think the next iteration would be a little quicker than the 4-5 year wait.  Since some of the physics groundwork has been laid down.  

Hopefully we will see another early access again.  However it does seem to take a toll on the developers, @KickUp mentioned this at least once in a road book there was more pressure to get a release out every month.

So, if none of them... whats left? :hushed:

Things that were listed as possibilities in previous DiRT Shows would be the safest bet.

I wouldn't mind if they'd use Dirt Rally (the stages, cars, etc.) and rework it using their new game engine plus overhaul the physics to create V3. Once that is done, release it as an EA game. During the EA period they can do what they've done so far which is adding more cars and locations, and update or add features.

Don't see the next DR chapter as Dirt Rally 2 but see it as Dirt Rally 2.0. An improved version of Dirt Rally with more of everything.

Anybody against this idea? :smiley:
@KickUp? What's your view on this?

Were it so easy.
Thing is, reworking the game engine a great deal means that a lot of those assets like existing stages and cars will also need to be reworked.
Sadly, they can't just be dropped in. To what extent they'd have to be reworked is hard to say.
So you're not so much as just adding new content, you're having to rework a lot of the existing content and then do the new content.
Reworking old content means less new content, but all-new content probably means less overall content.

Well my suppose is:
- 2016:
   -Dirt rally on consoles.
  -while 2016 : DLC's
-2017:
   -January: revolution of WRC cars (real life)
   -middle of the year new early access of  DR 2 with new physics engine.
Sounds crazy and impossible... or not?
Cheers

They already did develop a new game engine , didn't they? F1 2015 uses that new game engine.
I do know that  using a new game engine means reworking the old content. (Might be a huge task or it might not be, we can't know that of course.) 
That's also why I wrote that they could rework the old content and overhaul the physics first (in the next year or so) and when that process is finished they could release it as an EA game. The only thing they have to do then is the same as they're doing right now which is adding new content, isn't it?

It does take time to do all that but I wouldn't mind waiting for a year. Dirt Rally now is so much fun and, in my eyes, it's going to stay that way for a good long while!

F1 2015 is just another variation of the EGO engine.
We learnt a lot about the nature of how EGO is developed the past few months and it's no where near as straight forward as is common reported in the gaming press or on wiki.
There isn't really a straight forward v1, v2, v3, v4 the way wikipedia says.
DiRT Rally is, essentially as much a new engine as the one in F1 2015.

F1's engine wouldn't work with Dirt rally apparently. So they just did a lot of work on the old one, effectively making it a new one in the process. The only thing it might be slightly down on is graphics
Dirt Rally uses the EGO 3.0 and F1 2015 the EGO 4.0.
EGO 4.0 must be some kind of updated version of 3.0 you'd think.
I wonder why it wouldn't work though. If someone could explain it to me in layman's terms. :smiley:

Yeah, that's what we thought a few months ago. It isn't actually accurate.

I wouldn't count with a new physics engine, but with a v3 of the current physics and we don't even know the future of DiRT Rally and the future of the franchise. If we will see a "new chapter" of DiRT Rally or If it will return to the DiRT 1/2/3 line with a DiRT 4 release. Let's hope to see a good future for both DR and the "next chapter" of it!

well often they just tweak old engine and call it new. most studios do this.

as to whats next who knows . if they have a idea or build testers would be probably playing it.if it takes two or three years to make :p

firstly this game needs to be finished. i love it to bits and best car game i played but some very simple things still arnt added.

showing all peoples times in games with each car for each track.shouldn't have to race just to find times.
replays of other people or being able to select people and show replays.
the ability to choose what rally i want to rally.i personally would like to just rally in wales.yet i have to hope it picks wales randomly.
change cars set ups on the fly ingame.that is annoying.have to save quit go back in currently. time consuming.
a proper guide to tuning yes i know many people have made guides but..they are guessing on what works 100 percent the best.only the devs know what is 100 percent the best set ups.

future content DLC is this happening ? many brought into this game because it was said all content would be free.

i dont mind paying but many will argue about dlc if its not free .

add in bugs plenty to sort out yet.
