The tarmac

Loaded, tested:

1) night germany

2) all 3 surfaces

3) headlights on and off

4) brightness normal and all the way up

 

Noted no brown in any of the palettes for the road surfaces, your monitor is dying, you have a custom colour setup or you're having a stroke.

@PJTierney: Since it seems that responds much more information content than we are used to, here is a question that the community continues to ask: what kind of hope can you give us regarding the following seasons (3.4, etc.)? Are they a reality or simply an illusion on our part?

I'm paraphrasing here, but he mentioned something along the lines of can't say if there will be more seasons or not, but they're sure they'll have plenty of stuff to keep us entertained.

Which class are you using? With a couple of exceptions (the FWD classes for H2 and R2), I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the AI.

They're mighty challenging, and personally I have to fight for every championship point, but that’s the idea. I certainly hope it doesn’t become easier to allow everyone to win; it has far greater longevity at the moment and that’s a key reason I play season after season (along with the randomly generated championship rounds).

Are you using a wheel setup? I personally find it a little too off putting using gamepad. Specially the faster stages. A slider to adjust difficulty would be a nice feature. I wish we could generally adjust things according to input devices.

True except for the part about letting the Russians take control. I don't think this a particularly good idea. There might be some who would improve it but the risk of running the game into the ground is more likely to happen. No offence to any of Russians but, historically speaking, giving power to the Russians hasn't worked out well in most cases (both in gaming and real history). Not trying to insult anyone, just stating facts.

I'm using Group A. You do have a really good point! But I think that Group A also has broken AI and it depends of the location! For example, Poland is impossible. By the way, I always finish with top 50 times worldwide and i'm still at the bottom of the pack!

I think he’s referring to Masters AI times (rally mode) being quicker than the world record human times, so unless you are capable of setting world record pace you don’t stand a chance of winning. 

Having said that, Spain and Germany are significantly easier to win on, similar story to Dr1, in that the AI seem less competitive on tarmac compared to other surfaces. 

Another issue is the h1, h2 fwd times being too quick, i think that’s pretty much across all difficulties (not just Master’s). 

Ai was rating in the top 3 of the various polls for fixes that were going round the forum a few months back.

Christina did respond to AI queries not long after the game cane out, saying any work on the AI “would be a big undertaking”, so it may be on the devs radar already, but they may not have the resources to look into every issue to be fair.

It has been said countless times that the dlc content rollout has no significative impact on bug fixing.

And saying they haven't fixed anything, is at least an understatement.

Read on here yesterday that we were getting a new location - Latvia. Very excited about that.....

Until I got home and rad the in game announcement properly and realised it's rallycross.

Which reminds me, what's with the rallycross daily events? I tried a few and been the only car on the track. Do I need to qualify or are they meant to be just time trials?

Not too bothered, I'm not really interested in circuit racing (well, except for Wreckfest) but as I've paid for the content I like to at least try it out.

Rally: For certain categories like (FWD H2, R2, Group A) the AI seems to be way too fast! They are doing World Record times. In group A, it seems to be different for each location (In new zealand there are no problems but in Poland, its nearly impossible). It's nice to have a challenge, but the AI in certain catagories need a fix.

Rallycross: The cars that are not in your race are way too fast and the ones in your race are too slow.

I don't know if anyone else can relate with this, but those are the problems that I seen.

@PJTierney, congrats on your new job, hope you have a lot of patience to put up with all of us, and our silly questions...

Now for the AI, the problem is transversal to a lot of categories. About a month ago, i was trying the RGT class and the AI was posting faster times than the World Records, even in Elite Tier, in some locations. I know we don't have to win all events (and probably we shouldn't expect it) to classify in the top 3, but i don't think this situation is reasonable, having one more tier above Elite...

Totally unrelated to the current topic, but the only thing this game is really missing from the stage rally perspective are Super Special Stages like the WRC games have.

 

The stadium stages were always my favorite.

Just for the record (not saying you're wrong, just different preferences) I'm completely the opposite of that.

If we had 200km of 'standard' special stage in each location, I'd be up for that, but when there's 20-30km in each then I'd rather every additional kilometre modelled was part of regular stage personally.

Totally understandable!  I also totally get that and would like to see a REAL long stage at each rally.

I just really am a fan of the head to head style SSS's and I feel like it would be something really fun to do online with a buncha people, Race of Champions style.

yeah, a few of the long stages in the game are actually an even longer one that's just been broken up.

Argentina is a good example... the two long ones could be combined into one huge one. I don't think it'll happen because they are two different files, but yeah, imagine having to not blink for a full 12-15 minutes!

I like the Head2Head courses in D3 and D1 too. that would be neat, especially if we could use them with both RX and rally cars...

I'd like it for something beyond season 3&4, if we ever get that lucky. H2H (SSS), Hillclimb, alternative layouts for RX, more stages for current locations, YourStage with tiles from ingame locations...

The potential for variety and growth is very large. These are all things they've done before in DiRT titles - just seperate.

Since we can't have longer stages, the trick would be to add another long one (which translates into 2 new long stages in-game). That would be enough for variety imo.

Me too, and more locations would have the priority. The problem is, if we are to make a long rally like irl, we're stuck to 2 courses and their reverses, which makes it up for 4 unique routes. Adding another 2 long stages would double this and would make rallies way more interesting.

Some of the rallies can be quite boring and repetitive because of this (example of Argentina and Germany).

I don't know if that's an option for every location but why not try to add one or two new long stages to the existing ones but make sure that they are not the same visually, surface-wise, etc.

I know that it's easy to do that for Germany. We can have vineyard stages for example. I know it's been brought up several times over the last few years but that shows you the amount of people wanting those vineyard stages. Are there options for all the other locations?

Probably it would be harder for the non-european ones if they didnt already take photos of another course, hence why i mentioned they should've done that the first time they went there. The european ones seem to be more feasable in terms of costs, specially if there's new rallies coming they can already take photos of 2 stages instead of just 1.

There's also onboard footage on Youtube that could be a great help and money saver for some famous stages' recognition. After all, it doesn't need to be 100% accurate to the last rock, the onboard footages give enough detail for a stage reconnaissance.

Example: 

 

Let's also not forget most of the props for these rallies already exist and can be used to speed up develpoment of said stages.

I think the most tricky part would be getting the road camber and elevations properly, and perhaps some texture work / houses. Apart from that, just drop some props on it.

I think one more long stage per location would be enough. 2 more would be absolutely awesome, but the returns diminish a little imo.

I also agree with Riggs in that I wouldn't expect the same level of fidelity with any new ones. I just want more stuff to drive on, not for every tree to be in the exact right position

more locations would be nice too (after Finland and Greece of course).

I don't think either are happening, however. they've had a clear plan for the game since well before release, and I'm fairly certain neither of those things are in it.

{if I were to pick the most likely, I'd go with a brand-new rally location or two to get more people to buy Season 3 or 4, as well as bring new players to the game)

I’m completely the opposite of this - I’m after as many unique kilometres of stage we can get - would mean it would be possible to do a longer rally without as much repetition.

As long as it’s quicker to create a new stage in an existing location as it is to create an entire new one, I’d much rather have the former.

I understand here that’s not the case, it’s probab easier to upgrade Finland than to make another New Zealand stage, but once we’ve got the 12 locations, that would be plenty for me - if they started DR3 with 8 DR2 locations and double the stages for each that would be a dream...

But that’s a long way off - for now, I’m just hoping for an updated Finland, because the stage model was superb in DR1 but the physics rendered it in enjoyable there for me - fingers crossed I get to use it with DR2’s one day.
