If that is the case, then i don’t know how they are going to get a bunch more cars if they were barely able to get the previous wrc cars in, albeit at a later date

😩

Now the game is out there (and hopefully making some money) perhaps there is fresh funding available to throw at more licenses?

However they do it, let's hope it is going to happen!

Really like Sweden, Awesome feeling.

But I also have to voice something and ask:

Is there any change in Water-effects coming down the road? Currently it looks, well, quite s*** compared to the previous titles. Whenever driving through the puddles in USA I expect some awesome water-splash like since DiRT 2 was a staple of the series, just to be disappointed by some drops on the screen. And heavy rain looks like it is raining Laser-blaster-fire.

Can someone find a video of real life heavy rain onboard?

Cause as far as I can tell from real life experience and some searching the main difficulty for the eyes in rain are the drops ON the screen and the moving wipers. You can't really see any lines in the sky of falling water, no?

 

 

Or is there some hidden ingame setting to adjust how the water splashes and rain looks?

Have to revoke part of my statement.

It seems it actually is more realistic than I thought with the water splashes. If your hood has those water-holes in it (R5), you get consistently more splash effect at the USA Water splash than if your hood is closed off. And IF there is splash effect it also looks good. Actually all the drops ON the windscreen look good in terms of visuals.

Still though Rain stripes in the sky (at night) look still very weird.

Do you know if those would be in addition to an official livery, or instead of?

 

If it is then i wish i had a gaming pc so i could get the modded livery lol

God, the 1997-99 Impreza WRC looks SOOO good... And it's possibly the most iconic rally car of all time, surely the recent ones

nah, it seems like they're just adding one plain white (and one plain black?) to every car in game.

so no, not instead of any other liveries, just in addition to what's already there.

and I'm playing on a mid-/high-end laptop... don't need a gaming pc necessarily I think.

I think he means if the plain liveries have the same properties as an official livery (livery_00 folder) rather than a livery made using the livery editor (livery_user folder) you can make custom liveries using the livery_00 folder but not with the livery_user folder

aaaah right of course!

nobody knows, but most people seem to be assuming that yes it will be moddable, since that is why they were asking for the plain ones in the first place

I'd argue the Subaru or Lancer. Lots of people don't know old cars. I'd like to think my mom would be a good reference for what's iconic since she knows nothing, but... she's about as good as Sgt. Schultz.

Image result for schultz i know nothing

Once (Back in the 80's-90's) she was driving with my dad, saw a BMW M-series and said "Those poor people in those boxy cars." My dad got whiplash.

We were also leaving a car show one time and she said "I don't know why people spend so much money on cars, it's just a bunch of metal." Naturally my dad's response was "Eh, the Mona Lisa, it's just a bunch of paint on a canvas."

Being born in 2001 and talking about cars with mainly people of my age, I'd say that the Impreza really is the most well-known car that comes from a rallying background, at least between the general public who doesn't know much about rallies.

The Lancia Delta is right there, but I think this is because I'm in Italy, and it's still less known between very young guys. 

That said, which one would you say is THE most iconic rally car? Any Gr.B?

I would say that the '97 to 99 Impreza is the most iconic (and most recognised) rally car of the modern era. 

The most iconic rally car of all time? Few contenders there, but the Mk.2 Escort would probably be my pick. 

The most recognised rally car of all time (especially thinking about those who aren't rally fans) is probably the Audi Sport quattro E2. I would definitely say that is the most recognised Group B car (which is ironic as it was the most unsuccessful quattro variant).

I'm only 27, but still the most iconic rally car for me is mk2 Escort, but most iconic rally class is group b. 

I grew up around mk2 Escorts and my favorite TV show as a kid was a Finnish motorsport tv show where they had history part in the end of every episode, so I saw old videos of those cars quite lot. 

And old Escorts are still hugely popular rally cars here.

I could talk all day about cars, especially older cars. Old American cars(GM) and euro Fords are my weakness. :classic_laugh: I still need to get mk2 Escort, before prices gets even more ridiculous.
