@Rygar86 thanks for you reply :) , but what is replay system ?  , for lengh stages maybe codemasters think the player  is not ready for long  stage, look  dirt 4 in spain you have more 20 km ( and 19 for other country )stage in rally ( in dirt rally 1.0 the more longer  rally   stage have 11km ), wait dirt rally 2.0 maybe the long stage ( 30 km ,maybe 40 or 50 km ) come in to this futur game.  

personally, my only  problem is co-driver error ( example : on dirt 4 , the co driver said the bad  angle of turn  or pin not precise ( you no have info for  close or open note sometimes ).

and for me was good but on dirt rally 1.0 you no have many RX  race because codemaster, before dirt 4 no have RX licence . and the rally stage is limited because after 3 month , you know perfectly the all rally stage . for dirt rally 2.0 i wait normal stage and i wait really more the  generated stage  . and i hope the monthly update (with small dlc) come to this game  ( not all years  but monthly  update during 2 years   should be good  )

They should just up the percentage of crashed cars on the roadside. I felt it was too sparse in DiRT4
Especially with road position. When starting at the back you should see a lot more cars off the road. From experience I’ve been right at the back before on a stage and passed around 5 or six cars off the road

How long was the stage though?
Percentage-wise, it was probably about right in D4.
Percentage of competitors too; starting at the back in a national event (in the UK) you can have 100 cars starting in front of you. I thought it was right in D4, rare enough that it still surprised you. Crucially, it reflected the actual standings.

Even on short stages like Porlock Hill in Somerset I’ve passed 4 or 5 cars off the road when running at the back. It’s not uncommon to pass a few cars within a short distance of each other too!

If you haven’t seen Porlock before, here’s a clip of my brother doing it a few years ago:
https://youtu.be/6MrIS1jtGhc

Its a a really great tarmac stage, I actually prefer it to the Great Orme! He also does a pretty dodgy overtake at 3:40

edit: watching that back, he actually passes about 4 cars on that run

Is there a transcript or a cliff notes version, I just don't have the time to listen (unfortunately) to 100mins.

Your brother should be one of the consultants, very smooth drive. Which car is it he was driving though?

A modified MG ZR. If you could see his driving on dirt rally then you would understand why he should never be allowed near a consultancy job

ZR is an outstanding hatch. Nice.

And lol, I'd wish to see him "nailing" stages on DR someday.

Yeah we have two, his and the one in my profile picture which is has a standard engine and gearbox. That picture was actually me and my brother too, but I normally co drive for my dad.

Unfortubately he’s banned from ever using my wheel again. He just crashes into trees and blames the game rather than his shitty driving

When’s he making a return to the stages? Assuming he still has SBG?

When it stops breaking down every time he drives it! He has been talking of selling it and getting something different

Even the entry list was only 2 or 3 car classes, did like to be able to compare like r2 to r5

Any news on the career mode either? Would like to see something like dirt but more involved like dirt 4 but also be invited maybe to do safety cars(00) or just more involved in the career, like paying an entry fee into each event and paying for parts like dirt 4

Flipping quiet around here.


https://youtu.be/sbqb-tmvnoE?t=980

Few tidbits from John - notably a few comments about improvements and a note about there being 'more' R5 cars this time than in previous games. Also mentions potentially the next stream being on 20th.


Yup, more than 4 R5's then.

Fiesta, C3 and Polo confirmed. I see no reason why the 208 won't be in. I'm also 98% sure the Fabia is in. It's been heavily teased with blinking smileys when people have asked.


With a lil' luck we'll get the following list of R5's.

  • VW Polo R5
  • Citroen C3 R5
  • Ford Fiesta R5
  • Peugeot 208 R5
  • Hyundai i20 R5
  • Skoda Fabia R5
  • Mitsubishi Space Star R5(have a feeling this one could be dropped though)

That’s a way better lineup than what we would end up with if they chased after the 16 or 17 WRC cars
It would be a dream line up.
"Which R5s have you got?"
"All of them!"
" :o "

Now if they could only get all R2s... and by all R2s, I mean add that little Pug Mr Armstrong once drove and the modern rally collection of this game will be epic. I still don't know what will be in RGT but, apparently, it'll be good.

I'm positively sure that the 208 R2 will be in the game.

They would pretty much include everything in national championship series' then! Fantastic! Just curious, the most,  of what the unknowns will come in RGT.

Wonder if the Fiesta R2 will be the new model?

I think, for consistency sake, they will stay with the current model. When they update, they should update the R2 and the R5. The new model is still, well, new. The fact that it's also the official Junior WRC car may cause a bit of a licensing fuss right now, so I think they should play it safe.

Speaking of model updates, can we have a smaller rear-wing on the 208 R5? If I recall correctly, it was quite oversized in D4.

I wonder if the Fiesta R5 is the evolution variant.

I'd happily see the 208 make way and come as DLC with an improved sound; it's nothing like any of the other R5s (apart from the DS3 obviously).

Six R5s would be superb, but at the moment I'll assume 'more than 4' = 5. Hopefully the three we know plus the Hyundai and Skoda. Either of the others would be a bonus.

I doubt either Fiesta will be the updated one, especially the R2 would be a huge amount of work for relatively few people who would realise probably.

A bit too much of  "it will be DLC". Remember, only 2 seasons of  DLC are guaranteed, for now. Each one will bring 5 new cars (only 5) for a grand total of 10. You start putting the Fabia, then the 208, then other R5s to DLC and you've removed room for desirable classics and older (mid-2000s) WRCs, like the 206, the Xsara, the Cordoba, which are also highly requested. Also, remember, there's rallycross too! Rallycross could get cars for DLC as well!

One note worthy thing is that he says there was a vision of Dirt Rally being more like a service, adding content along the way and that DR2 might be getting that treatment(although that is pure speculation on Paul's part).

Well that has been 2 ‘seasons’ of DLC confirmed for DR2 so he could be right. Would make sense to build on the platform they’ve got now. Especially with all the work the handling guys have put in.

Agreed, I'm hoping to see that's how it will work out with DR2; keep it going for a few years with support, features, locations, cars, new co-drivers, skins etc.

Good interview was that; very open about the issues with DiRT 4 (with Your Stage) and their marketing push and personnel issues on the original DR and how the Early Access approach basically prevented them from making it a long-term project. When I've been frustrated with the marketing approach taken to this game (announce it but provide very little info straight after), I will bear in mind the points raised here.

Pretty sure they'll add the RGT Exige in no time if enough players post times on the 911. The car may have not been successful but still should be tons of fun to drive.

I really wonder what they'll put in RGT. We already know they're not restricting themselves to real cars only, as evidenced by the Camaro. I think Camaro, Porsche, Aston and Abarth.

The Abarth definitely. I think the Aston is a must as well. Codemasters have been able to secure Astons for previous games. Oh and don't forget, the car actually got FIA R-GT homologation. Now, if Codies were to go for this car, how would they get access to it? That's what makes me not 100% solid on this suggestion.

Camaro is eligible for RGT class indeed. Here's what Wikipedia says about the technical requlations:

"The technical regulations are described in Appendix J, article 256 of the FIA sporting regulations. The category is for series production GT cars, that must be two-wheel driven. A car with four-wheel drive cars can be used as basis, but must be transformed into a 2WD version. All cars must be fitted with a restrictor whose diameter is determined by the FIA in order to achieve a weight/power ratio of 3.4 kg/hp(4.6 kg/kw)."

Car models don't need to be homologated either; a technical passport for the vehicle is all that is needed.
