Don't say anything too negative about Dirt rally in the Feedback thread or they ban you from commenting.
I haven't seen anyone get banned?
I can no longer post in the thread.
If you did get a ban they will normally ban you from the entire forum not just one thread and besides it doesn't say your in jail.

Can anyone answer me as to why so many people want laser scanned tracks? I don't see why it would be necessary with the detail in the stages all ready
Sounds to me that these people have never been to a rally, or maybe don't understand what a rally really is.  Laser scanning a rally stage is like laser scanning the ocean.  The roads change constantly, rain can completely change the road with run off and mud.  Roads can degrade with each car passing through.  Its never really the same road each pass/event.  So scanning a dirt/gravel road is pointless.

Then again we do have tarmac roads. But personally I am fine with as close we can get without it. Rather have other cool stuff.
Tarmac isn't dirt or mud and won't wash away when it rains heavily.

Is it realistic to ask Codemasters to laser scan hundreds of Km's of PUBLIC roads though? Even if they could close them off they have zero experience I doing it...

So... been looking for hints or something in the particle systems, which probably only contain particles for tracks already downloaded within the game, and will likely be updated as locations are added, but even so I've been trying to find some source for speculation.

As far as country names go, the only thing I found was that some light gravel particles had the name Greece in their textures, but...

I also found particles titled SAND, and their textures were called K_Sand (or something like that) - the same name as the Kenya sand textures from DiRT3 - which means...

SAFARI RALLY WILL BE COMING TO dIrt rALLY!!!

That, or there's sand in some stages, or Hillclimbs, or 'off-road' Rallycross section...

Hopefully the first guess is right.

Great, that is something hopeful to hear. The game is already fantastic that is gradually gaining much fidelity and it still will be keeping up with its standout when it is releasing new astonishing contents through the next months. ^^

Yeah I hope we get Colin's crest, would be awesome. I'm really looking forward to Finland, and Germany was looking really good too
I think finland will be my favorite too, and what do you mean by germany's looking good? have you seen it? is there any footage or pictures anywhere?

Yes Germany looked great back in February, and it wasn't even finished then. 

Got to say, I dislike how busy and cluttered this forum is now. I almost miss the gentle quiet it had pre DR. 
One of the reasons that I created the feedback list was to help to keep the forum clean but people insisted to create new threads with the same things of the list :neutral:

This topic seems still rather quiet. Not much to gossip about though. Maybe how the final game would look. Hoping for improvements for the menu as well. It would be cool to know if they would even consider to put in the little things.

Boy oh boy, I log out of the forum in affect about a week ago and now look what has happened. In a way it's cool. Shows the support for the title. Now if someone could please dig up some gossip on console relase that would be great! 

Otherwise I'll be playing Project Cars, and watching you jealously from afar!

Is there media showing it anywhere or is it just people who got to go to Codies that have seen it?

Only the ones that had the privilege to visit Codemasters.

Well, I'm still (trying very hard to remain) convinced that Safari will find its way into the game one way or another.

The fact that it's not on the Calendar/Timeline may seem to indicate that there's little to no chance of it happening, but in actuality, its absence is just a reference to the fact that the event is no longer on the WRC Calendar.

So, in the empty month of December, we'll be getting a surprise final update before the end of the year, after which DiRT team will decide whether or not to continue Early Access.

That update will have the safari rally - a wonderful contrast to Sweden/Winter Wonderland before it - where the heat will be through the roof and we'll get to smash our cars into donkeys and slide them into giraffes' legs.

Yes, why not. You may even want to borrow a hyena as co-driver if the co-driver was straightforward and wasn't humorous enough.  ^^

We all knew it would be coming ,but here's the closest thing so far to a confirmation of Splitscreen multiplayer. Unless that's already in the game and I just missed it somehow, but I think it's probably gonna be part of the pvp pack.

There is no console release at the moment, Codemaster's will think about a console release at a later date.

i appreciate your dedication to the cause, where many of us had lost hope
Many of us were willing to go down with the ship, luckily @justbiglee bailed water quick enough to keep up and finally corked up the hole (April 27. 2015)

we uncorked the campaign!

Hello everyone!

I'm finally back from a holiday, which was meant to be relaxing (it actually was), but I kept on wishing I could play DiRT Rally! :D Yesterday, I only had enough time to download the files and now I have to endure more hours at work...

Anyways, I'm so glad the game went down so well and that there's a much bigger community now giving feedback and ideas. I do agree though that it is very hard to follow and not all posts make sense...

I still intend to create a post with my impressions from my visits to Codies and how the game feels now.

It will be very interesting to see whether community feedback will spark development of new features. Lee, Paul & Co often reply 'if community asks for it' - I wonder how much asking will be enough :)

The next few months will be very exciting: fixes and improvements, Pikes Peak track and possibly cars, RX mode and PVP multiplayer

The trouble I have is that now I'll have GTA V, Project CARS and Witcher 3 to play... DiRT Rally it is then.

WTF! I just had to go to the second page to find the gossip thread - this isn't right. 

Glad to hear you're back MVB, we'll do that "I've been trolling you for the last 2 years AMA" soon if you like?
That's because we're being over run by threads asking for the same things. 
I'm doing some tidying up on the borads today to hopefully sort it out. If you see people posting in the wrong area if you could point them in the right direction that would really help me out. The new guys will get used to it soon :)

Suggestion box > http://forums.codemasters.com/discussion/6034/community-the-dirt-rally-suggestion-box

Bug reporting > http://forums.codemasters.com/discussion/5755/dirt-rally-how-to-report-a-bug

just drop them either of those links and either myself of @SkiddyMcCrash will be along to tidy up.

It happens when a new game comes out, the same happened with DiRT 3 and the F1 forum is a mess as well.
