I imagine there is some kind of formula that could be worked out with the complexity and length sliders that will help with ai times. I'm so excited to play the career mode in this game!
Yeah, its something along those lines. We actually did a similar thing for our previous games as we needed to account for damage, wear rates, and all other kinds of things.

in dirt rally I really wondered what happens at the following case:

I changed gear 1 and gear 5 of the renault alpine 110 one step longer, same for final drive and saved the setup.

Now I started the career and of course I dont have the advanced car setup at the moment. Now I loaded the car setup for the alpine
And the gear slider was one step further right - and now I really wonder:
What did it load now? Did it apply the 1st and 5th longer gear?? Or are this time all gears changed? But the latter would be strange as well :D I really wonder - what does the game load then? :D

I had been hoping for more rallycross info but, having read about it now, I'm very keen to see more of the team aspect of the game!
It's coming! :) We'll in Barcelona at the end of the month, and we're hoping to do loads while we're out there. :)
You are? Sounds promising, hopefully you won't all blank me if I pass you in the pits again @ChristinaMc! :smiley:
Are you there?! Promise I won't blank you - I know what you look like now!... :)

You know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words?  How about next roadbook just post a picture or two :)  Heck, you wont have to type as much, lol 

Great roadbook sounds really interesting.
Our next screenshots are still pending approval with the relevant parties, alas. Working on them though!

Yeah, I think the 300 stages in the career are pre set stages which have all been created using the your stage tool. So you probably won't be able to change those as it is a set in stone career mode. You can obviously create your own stages in custom events and online/leagues
Correct - the career stages are generated by Your Stage, but curated by us to make sure it fits the challenge curve. Your Stage track generation is for custom events, freeplay, leagues, clubs, PvP, and that side of things. :)

I am indeed @ChristinaMc! Will definitely be at four World rounds this year (possibly five, though number five is subject to funding at the moment!).

@ChristinaMc

Will these screens feature rally or rallyx? A mix of both? ;) . If you can share, really curious.
I won't say what to expect for now, but we basically have more of everything in the works. I'll share what gets approved first though. :P

Are the car setups in D4 still resetting on location-change in league events with multiple locations, despite not setting a service park @KickUp ?

And is it possible to set multi-class leagues? So like setting two eligible car classes for competition, but showing seperate leaderboards for both together with one overall standing? If not, might be a suggestion for the future, so you could create R5 and R4 Events with different standings for both classes while competing in the same event.

I probably just found the oldest piece of gossip about DiRT 4, which was available if I recall correctly from the very launch of DiRT Rally... we really need to up our gossip game xD




"DiRT 4 Wins", they told us what they were planning and that it was gonna be a winner. Nailed it, it's definitely looking like a winner!

Are there gonna be improvements in terms of visual damage? Not the mechanical stuff, but the visual damage like parts falling off, cracks and dents. 
Yes. We've tried to improve this area but it's not new tech, just refinements in how we use it.

It is also in the loading background, while the game signs up to RaceNet. I've thought it said "DiRT 4 WINS" since the announcement of the game... I guess we'll have to take a better look at number plates in D4, that's subtle messages taken to a new level!

 @KickUp May I ask few questions :)
1) Are Historic Cars only to be bought from Classified Market or can we bought brand new form Dealershop. if Yes will the price difference be large ( or Small depending on Car winning History)?
2) In Career mode. we can Return to Events if we wanna do it again, but is it be posible to be Weather Changed or is set to be static? (If first stage of Event was sunny,will it be always sunny or can be cloudy or  rain?)
3) will we have DirtFish Cars or Their livery in School ?
Thanks for Your Time :)

1) you can only buy historics from the classifieds. They might not always be available though. 
2) you can return to events and do them again. The weather will change a bit but not a huge amount. (Amount of rainfall etc.)
3) we have some of the DirtFish cars. When you attend the school the cars will have their livery.

Dirtfish has BRZ's, any chance we'll see them in DiRT4? Would love some modern RWD's
No plans yet. Agree it would be cool. 
This has probably been answered. Are there both tarmac and gravel in the rally school area?

Still curious about this though as setups/tires are surface specific. Does this mean you can play around on tarmac with a gravel spec car with gravel tires and vice versa? @KickUp

What I want is an old school 80s ae86.

I'm pretty sure the cars makes their own setup sometimes in Dirt Rally... seen it happen to most of them. They mostly appear to set the suspension to the hardest value, and the dampers to the softest value. They also mess with the gears and differentials. Not entirely sure what causes it, but always make sure you double & triple check before setting off.

Now that you mention it - how would the licensing work on the Toyobaru Twins? We're not allowed to have Toyotas, but would the BRZ get by because it's *kind of* a Subaru?

Yes, I can confirm Ive seen this on quite a few occasions and I agree it seems to be a random bug. Thing is you might not notice it if you dont have the suggested default (orange) arrows on but if you do you will see that they are way off the defaults. Quick click of the (choose) default button and its fixed.

this is what i was getting at a while ago with the crazy setups that load on daily events, i was told that it was to do with it loading a subscribed setup but i have since got rid of all subscriptions and it still happens so that was total BS it really throws you off the road sometimes

this would be awsome to go agaist the alpine and such but the ae86 has atleast been in a codemasters game before
It wouldn't really suit a rally game since I don't think it was used in rally, at least there are no mentions about it in the wiki page, only that it competed in some GT and endurance races

@KickUp May I ask. 
1) in Career Mode will there be unlockable things?  or everything is buyable (New livery, parts, )
2) will we see the difference between surface spec of the same car ( for example Tarmac and Gravel spec Cars have different special wheels) or Hypothetically speaking  If  there would be Saffari (Kenya) Location as dlc would it be possible to have rollbar and air filter on outside of car..
Thank for Your Time
edit: i meant alloy wheels

      I guarantee number 2 is a Yes as it's already featured in DR. Gravel spec wheels on gravel and tarmac spec wheels on tarmac.

      Hooning around on tarmac with a gravel spec car in rally school would be awesome :)

        Sorry, Now i saw, I was not to specify. I meant alloy wheels for Gravel spec (smaller holes)

        You'll be able to do that. The areas of tarmac are quite broken up though
