Message added by PJTierney,

Did you know that the long-time members of this thread have had a DiRTy Gossip Discord server for a while?

You do now 😉

I have a theory based on a conversation that was had when I was at Codemasters last year. It doesn't tie in with the video posted by Jon Tucker, nor is it directly connected to Finland, but I do have two legends in mind.

However for fear of breaking my NDA (and, perhaps most importantly, being wrong on the forum) I'm going to keep quiet. This effectively renders this post as pointless and leads me conclude that I probably shouldn't have bothered typing all of the above and wasting your time.

Wasn't a complete waste of time, it made me laugh almost as much as I laughed at this:

Now look what I just saw...



Oops...uh, don't get too excited! You wouldn't have been able to select it in-game. When an event is invalid the tile locks automatically.

It was a bug that I've just fixed. You'll actually be racing in Germany. Sorry!


Is that you flirting with our feelings @Hatward?  You just gave us plenty of reasons to Gossip that all cars on Pikes Peak will happen soon! :D

No need to apologise, I'm fine with knowing what you're working on :smiley:

Allright gossipers, I have got something for you.
On the tarmac terrors DiRTshow Paul talked about how they wanted to explore ways of deformable terrain, or terrain that changes over time (deeper racing lines etc),or some kind of randomized element on the stages, and I thought that would be cool. Little did I know they are already starting to implement that stuff !!!
I found this viciously placed rock behind a crest on the right side of the road, I had a good pace and more or less landet right on it *loud crack* I have never seen  this rock before, on top of that, it was an animated object, with physics, as you can see from the pictures (I dragged it under me a couple of meters). I was lucky it only scraped the protective plates under the car, and I did not suffer a puncture, maybe a little suspension damage.

Sadly steam did choose not to save the screenshot which shows the rock from the hood cam, otherwise I could better show you how dangerous that was.
So, am I dreaming, was that stone always there? If not, is this the beginning of Codies placing mines like these all over the stages ?
