Started out feeling meh about the game, but now I love it. The graphics aren't the prettiest running it at 1440p on PC, but the game play is what matters the most to me. The only nice addition to running your own would be if you could see your facilities and the upgrades to them rather than just menus, overall though I like it, it's kind of similar to the first Grid game.
I second this. I am really enjoying the owning and managing a private team and garage bit, but I really would love it if it was a physical location to walk around in and just stare at my pretty cars, with an expanding garage and facilities.

Building your garage is such a key part of the game progression in both DR and D4, I think it is only a natural progression to flesh it out a little more.

This would be a big task to add in D4 I presume, but I would be really like to see it in future Dirt games.

It took me til now to realize you can generate only hill stages, without the forests in Wales, if you scroll through enough

I saved a couple of really nice, fast- flowing and undulating tracks. 
Especially when you set them to cloudy sunset, I have one where the entire last half has you driving into that big bright sun.

Felt more French than Welsh. I should find and save 12 stages like that and call it my "Rally France Championship".

Your Stage is so great. Can't say it enough.

I hope it's ok to ask here as I didn't want to create a thread just for this. A friend on my fl sent me a stage on wales to try so I went to free play to try it , but how do you load it. I went into load event and it doesn't show up, is this a bug or am I missing something?

So... since a lot of people are complaining about how terrible D4 looks compared to DR but they won't take comparison screenshots I decided to do so.
I seriously can not for the life of me understand why they think Dr looks better, or why they think D4 looks terrible.
This is THE worst thing I've seen on D4. I'm assuming I spawned too close to the map edge. Also, I now know with certainty that the distant terrain in DR is in fact part of the sky map.


On the other hand, you can get a sense of the scale of the "map" with this picture of the far mountains, where they look a lot less crap.


Edit* Also, it seems the dust does stick around longer than DR. I.e. it floats through the air and slowly fades where DR just sort of disappears after a while. The dust above on the left side is about 20 seconds old.
I couldn't get a good picture of it though, the heli cam seems oddly restricted to be horizontal to the road, so I can't get any good long dust trails. That was my favorite in Greece, seeing the dust trail winding through the hairpins going up the hill.

  :D Thats okay, I wont hold it against you! Besides, Im pretty sure we can still share 'Your Stage' creations across platforms :) @KickUp is there a way for us to share @WhiteWagon 's stage between console and PC, or have I got this wrong?

 No, I mean via the Dirt website or through the game somehow? Im pretty sure I heard that car setups can be shared between platforms too.

So assuming you've had a mail saying you've been sent it you can find it in the recieved tab when you select load Stage. 

You need to have selected the same country as the stage you have been sent before it becomes visible in your list.

Just had my first go in the Pro2 trucks. Multiple encounters with the barriers, several spins and a lot of bad language... 

...think I might come back to those. 
Don't want to sound like a 'wheel snob', but man you need to try them on a wheel! Wrestling with your own truck plus 7 other and the bumps, it's bloody hard work!
That's such a wheel snob thing to say. :smiley:

After getting through the first track in the Championship (think it was one of the Baja layouts?) I found them a bit easier. The faster, flowing circuits aren't too bad (as long as someone doesn't hit you at speed!), but getting the trucks out of the slower corners is a real handful. 

Finished the Pro2 Championship yesterday, so onto the Pro4 tonight!

Friday night is was like, 'lets try one landrush race, see how it is compared to dirt 2' , next thing I know it's 5 in the morning as I see the sun is rising through the window next to me. Played landrush all saturday and finished the career part of it sunday.
This was without restarts, took a lot of retries else it wouldn't have taken that long, since there are just 4 championships.

Yes that's correct, it's a stage in Wales and when I go to free play, select Wales then load stage the only 2 tabs showing are career and the my saved stages. Which it doesn't show up under either one of those tabs. 
 
 I also don't see how you share them. I got to be missing something cause he was able to send it.

I gotta say I was very posivitely suprised how the Sound Track fits into the general feeling and how nicely it builds a hype/emotions before a rally.
There's maybe one song which's getting on my nerves, generally THPS2 quality level.

Yeah, I thought it wouldn't be able to get close to DiRT 2 sound track, but I think it already is to me. So many great songs. Only thing I dislike is the sound in service area etc. I think it's to distorted, and sometimes unpleasant to my ears. I don't know if this is correct english, but it sounds ' harsh'. This was done better in the DiRT 2 service park.

I've been listening to my DiRT 4 spotify playlist all day at work.

Yes, I like the distortion though it's too loud, when I'm on headphones I need to take them off.
Not such problem when on Amplifier and Audio TV Preset.

@KickUp I have unlocked fearless mode, which adds the Brutal AI difficulty. But I would like to drive with custom difficulty settings (I basically use the fearless settings, with automatic gears) but whenever is select fearless, and change to autogear the AI gets dumbed down. Which makes career mode way to easy. Can this please be changed? 

Edit: Even when changing from Manual Sequential to Manual H-Pattern, it doesn't count as 'Fearless' anymore, and the AI is dumbed down...
So driving with a H-pattern gearbox isn't possible either.
@KickUp Yeah I have to second this (I made a thread about it before I saw it had already been mentioned here), and hope it's a bug rather than by design because it would be seriously disappointing if this couldn't be changed.

I'm fine with the Fearless preset being an "ultimate" difficulty where everything is turned off and can't be changed, all I want really is to be able to select 'Brutal' AI at lower, custom difficulty settings.

So I should have a received tab along with my career and saved stages, I also assume that when I hit X for options on a saved stage/championship there should be and option to share. I don't have either one of those. I'll take a few pictures tonight and clear my cache and try it again. If that don't work I try and reinstall it and if that don't work I'll repost it in the Found Bug forum, Thank you for your reply and help.

I'm not sure if I'm missing something... Where/How do you rename your saved stages locally? That was said to be possible wasn't it?

Have you done/tried a run in Michigan with heavy rain? That is some intense stuff, very fast, not much room for error and virtually no visibility at all. Awesome!

Anybody else sometimes got disappearing rain-droplets/effects on windscreen ? game restart fixes it again though.

When you X (on xbox) it gives you the option rename it when its highlighted after you save it. I don't have the share option all I have is delete and rename.

Ok, after several days playing, with the career mode almost finished, I can give my impressions. 

FFB: Big step back. At least in my DF GT the center force is too high and the suspension and little details have disappear. Don't know if is a bug or what but BIG step back from DR.

Graphics: Not so important for me, is a win-lose point. Some things are better other are a bit worse. In general I like the new look, the big thumb up is for for the new lighting system.

Physics: Again, miss and win. I love the new tarmac physics but gravel is worse than DR. You loose the rear so easily, even with 4wd, almost impossible to break at some points (slippery zones, I am talking that more than 10% or 20% of the break and you  have completely lost the rear and the car control). You can powerslide but is very unrealistic, you will always lose a lot of time, even in fast medium corners. Too much grip in gravel, there is no big difference right now between gravel, snow or tarmac.

Game modes: Better than DR but neither a great aspect of the game. Your stage is good, not perfect, but good. The rest of the game is quite empty and a couple of different new localizations for YourStage would be nice.

Conclusion: In some points it seems to me like this is a follow up from vanilla DR physics, not from final version of DR. Some of the vanilla mistakes are back. RX for example is perfect now, you can feel the aero downforce, at the correct speed you cand balance the car, use the different surfaces...  but in rally mode there is something wrong. I hope they improve gravel and FFB and the game will be my new favourite racing game.

I would love to do that if those options were available to me, but they are not I only have 2 tabs career and my stages and only 2 options rename and delete. When I get home from work I will try it again and maybe if I clear my cache and restart the game it they might show up , Thanks again for your help.

Some people on Xbox were saying there was no rain on the windshield. I assume it's a bug then.

Really? I think the FFB is significantly better, in the fact that I don't avoid most of the game due to it. I did notice though that my wheel no longer vibrates with engine revs, which was a neat feature in DR, but it wouldn't turn off during pause menus. Have you fiddled with the settings?

Ok, thanks for the reply!

I've never known a racing game to say "you can have this higher AI difficulty, but *if and only if* you don't use these aids/assists/camera options" - or at least I can't think of another game that doesn't treat your driving experience and the AI separately in this way. And indeed the game already doesn't do this outside of Fearless - with Competent through to Tough AI all being freely selectable at Racer, Pro or Champion difficulties. So I do hope it can be changed!

Again to be clear I appreciate the point of Fearless, and would understand if you were reluctant to change it given how it's integrated into the career - literally all I would like is the ability to have Brutal AI and bonnet cam selected at the same time, haha. So the option to select Brutal AI within Racer, Pro or Champion would be grand. :)

My PC still freezes until I have to manually restart my PC when I try and play a rain stage :( Has this bug been noticed yet by the devs?
+1 

Try Bonnet cam before fix, works for me. Skip replays on rainy stages also because they freeze the game too

I've never known a racing game to say "you can have this higher AI difficulty, but *if and only if* you don't use these aids/assists/camera options" - or at least I can't think of another game that doesn't treat your driving experience and the AI separately in this way. And indeed the game already doesn't do this outside of Fearless - with Competent through to Tough AI all being freely selectable at Racer, Pro or Champion difficulties. So I do hope it can be changed!

Again to be clear I appreciate the point of Fearless, and would understand if you were reluctant to change it given how it's integrated into the career - literally all I would like is the ability to have Brutal AI and bonnet cam selected at the same time, haha. So the option to select Brutal AI within Racer, Pro or Champion would be grand. :)
Understood. We don't blindly follow other racing games and we like to try new things. Not everything works for everyone so that is why we experiment sometimes.

I hope it's ok to ask here as I didn't want to create a thread just for this. A friend on my fl sent me a stage on wales to try so I went to free play to try it , but how do you load it. I went into load event and it doesn't show up, is this a bug or am I missing something?
So assuming you've had a mail saying you've been sent it you can find it in the recieved tab when you select load Stage. 

You need to have selected the same country as the stage you have been sent before it becomes visible in your list. 
Yes that's correct, it's a stage in Wales and when I go to free play, select Wales then load stage the only 2 tabs showing are career and the my saved stages. Which it doesn't show up under either one of those tabs. 
 
 I also don't see how you share them. I got to be missing something cause he was able to send it. 
So I should have a received tab along with my career and saved stages, I also assume that when I hit X for options on a saved stage/championship there should be and option to share. I don't have either one of those. I'll take a few pictures tonight and clear my cache and try it again. If that don't work I try and reinstall it and if that don't work I'll repost it in the Found Bug forum, Thank you for your reply and help.

HOW TO LOAD, PLAY AND SAVE A SHARED STAGE:

         Select Event > Freeplay > Rally (or Historic Rally).

         Then on the Freeplay Championship screen select the ADD EVENT tile (it鈥檒l already be highlighted by default).

         Then on the Location screen, select the location of the Stage that has been shared e.g. Wales.

         Then on the Event Configuration screen on the ADD STAGE tile (it鈥檒l already be highlighted by default) use the MORE OPTIONS menu and select the LOAD STAGE option.

         Then on the Load Stage screen you鈥檒l see 4 tabs 鈥 Career Stages, My Stages, Stage History and Received.

         Navigate across to the Received tab and in this tab you should see any Stage shared to you via the Mailbox (it鈥檚 filtered by location).

         Pres SELECT on the Stage you wish to load and you鈥檒l be returned to the Event Configuration screen.

         From here you can either use the MORE OPTIONS menu again and select the SAVE STAGE option in order to save it to MY STAGES (Select the SAVE STAGE row on that screen) OR just select the CONFIRM option on the Event Configuration screen and then START on the Freeplay Championship screen to give the shared Stage a test run before you commit to saving it to MY STAGES.

         If you do like the Stage that has been shared you can just select the SAVE TO MY STAGES option on the Results screen after completing the Stage.

HOW TO SHARE A SAVED STAGE:

         Select Event > Freeplay > Rally (or Historic Rally).

         Then on the Freeplay Championship screen select the ADD EVENT tile (it鈥檒l already be highlighted by default).

         Then on the Location screen, select the location of the Stage that you wish to share e.g. a stage from Wales.

         Then on the Event Configuration screen on the ADD STAGE tile (it鈥檒l already be highlighted by default) use the MORE OPTIONS menu and select the LOAD STAGE option.

         Then on the Load Stage screen you鈥檒l see 4 tabs 鈥 Career Stages, My Stages, Stage History and Received.

         Navigate across to the My Stages tab and in this tab you should see any Stages that you can share to Friends via the Mailbox (it鈥檚 filtered by location). You can only Share stages from the My Stages tab (either via the Load Stage or Save Stage screen).

         Highlight the Stage that you wish to share, use the MORE OPTIONS menu on it and select the SHARE option.

         On the Share My Stage screen select the Friend(s) you wish to share the Stage with and then select the CONFIRM button.

Hope that helps

I would love to do that if those options were available to me, but they are not I only have 2 tabs career and my stages and only 2 options rename and delete. When I get home from work I will try it again and maybe if I clear my cache and restart the game it they might show up , Thanks again for your help.
Take a screenshot of it or record a game clip if you can.

My PC still freezes until I have to manually restart my PC when I try and play a rain stage :( Has this bug been noticed yet by the devs?
+1 

Try Bonnet cam before fix, works for me. Skip replays on rainy stages also because they freeze the game too
Or you can set your Graphics Settings to Ultra Low. The issue disappears (with cockpit cam and full replay).

@KickUp I have unlocked fearless mode, which adds the Brutal AI difficulty. But I would like to drive with custom difficulty settings (I basically use the fearless settings, with automatic gears) but whenever is select fearless, and change to autogear the AI gets dumbed down. Which makes career mode way to easy. Can this please be changed? 

Edit: Even when changing from Manual Sequential to Manual H-Pattern, it doesn't count as 'Fearless' anymore, and the AI is dumbed down...
So driving with a H-pattern gearbox isn't possible either.
@KickUp Yeah I have to second this (I made a thread about it before I saw it had already been mentioned here), and hope it's a bug rather than by design because it would be seriously disappointing if this couldn't be changed.

I'm fine with the Fearless preset being an "ultimate" difficulty where everything is turned off and can't be changed, all I want really is to be able to select 'Brutal' AI at lower, custom difficulty settings.
Its by design but that doesn't mean it can't be changed.

Understood. We don't blindly follow other racing games and we like to try new things. Not everything works for everyone so that is why we experiment sometimes. 
Fearless is good idea, but i have to also say that many seem to be wanting more challenge from AI than tough now offers, so maybe one for the future to give couple difficulty levels more? Many things in peoples setups / rigs might rule out using cockpit cam.
Would be nice to give some idea for Fearless could work even with opening Brutal AI, but right now nothing comes to mind :neutral:

Important:
@KickUp  One thing you must try to fix for Fearless to even work for some of us is that BUG: where while using cockpit cam in rainy stages causes game to freeze and PC to crash / freeze, with force restart needed.
Without fix Fearless is sadly literary un-playable.
 Ps. Enjoying the game really much this far, all the drama from my mistakes and the challenge of being fearless and trusting your co-driver (i'm not too fast so no problems for me with AI difficulty, tough being perfect for me). Great work&game Codies!

Just unlocked Fearless and Brutal AI.

All this while I have been running with all assists off and 0 restarts as well. My camera preference is chase cam, since I play with a controller (cockpit feels wrong without a wheel), so I can't really access Brutal AI for this. Please allow brutal AI to be customisable. Pretty please with a cherry on top :)

Also, with chase cam I can only max out my reward bonus to 93%, and some sponsors ask for 94% bonus target, which unnecessarily punishes a chase cam player like me.

This can be fixed, I presume, if you allow Brutal difficulty with chase cam since that should be able to push my reward bonus above 94%.

Also, I find it a bit weird that I can access fearless and brutal with gamer handling, but I can't access it on simulation only because I use chase cam. Odd design choice in my opinion.

Yep, actually I think we are looking to up the difficulty within the levels rather than adding new ones. We may uncouple Brutal at the same time but that is TBD.

I'll need to confirm with my team but it is possible that you can only access Fearless with Gamer because that is how you unlocked it.

No, I did not touch gamer at all throughout my entire playthrough. Full simulation for me (with chase cam). I unlocked it in Simulation. Sorry if I didn't mention that.

I was only getting frustrated that I could not go to Brutal AI with chase cam in the menus. As I was fiddling with customising difficulty in the menus, I just checked if Fearless is available in Gamer too, and yup it is... but not with chase cam  :'(
