The happier you RX fans are, the sadder I become.  This must be what it feels like to be a consol peasant being left out in the cold, no (new) stage rally content in the coming DLCs.  🤔

Well, glad you all are happy have fun going in circles 😂

 

EDIT: the only real RX content I would really enjoy is the NitroCircus location.

Seriously, how hard would it be to license this for the game?

NRX vs WRX
Red Bull vs Monster
Yokohama vs Cooper

But on the other side, Lydden Hill will come to the game, and WRX doesn't go there anymore, but TitansRX does. Next to that there are Red Bull sponsored cars in the game already. 

I don't know how much IMG sees NRX as competition, also Andrew Coley was commentator and having a good big RX race there only will help to promote the sport and could be beneficial for ARX. So far I haven't seen any CM employee not commentating about it that it is not possible, but it is also not announced as DLC. And if this track would come, I guess it will be definitly be paid DLC, or it would be a mega move to have it as free content.

That's odd. It's clearly damaged, yet it doesn't look like a Ford...

It is still Marklund you know 😛 He has crashed quite some cars as well.

I feel like this is overthinking potential licensing disputes a little. 

DR2 doesn't have official WRC-spec cars and can't have the same stages, but they have liveries and driver names from several eras of the WRC, and use cars that are currently used in the WRC2 and WRCjunior championships - cars with liveries that have sponsors of of drivers/teams that are currently in these championships.

similarly, when it comes to RX, DR2 has the Impreza RX with ARX liveries

Are you trying to say it would be conflicting interests? I don't think so. Far as I know NRX is basically just Pastrami trying to have a good time. There's no reason that either would object to the other.

Red Bull and Monster? I mean, Monster is a sponsor of WRX. I suppose I could maybe see it, but... It'd still be weird. I don't think Monster is a sponsor of DR2, and they actually seem to be pretty friendly, and I've seen a lot of crossover action sports stuff.

Yokohama and Cooper? Only if the advertisements are around the track. Even then they could just skip one or the other.

 

I guess the question is who owns the rights to the track, since I think was Mr. Sandwich that designed it and earned the funding for it.

"It is still Marklund you know 😛 He has crashed quite some cars as well. "

Impossible. Only the Block crashes cars.

this is a great gif. I've noticed on the Nitro RX youtube videos a lot of the comments are asking for the track in DR2. I don't know if there's going to be any content after Season 4, but if so it'd be nice to see this one and Spa (plus some rally stuff of course).

anyways, I wanted to ask you... how are you liking Dakar 18? I tried it for about 10 minutes a year and a half ago and found it kind of insane and not fun, but I like the idea, I like that part of the world (I've spent some time there), and I like offroad stuff.

I mean not to mention that there's Red Bull sponsored cars in WRX.

I could be mistaken, but I can't see IMG seeing Nitro RX as any sort of threat. Its just a one off event and, as they run the World, European and American season now, its not likely to affect them. 

I feel like if they viewed it as a threat, they would have forbade Andy from commentating it, and prevented the Hansens from competing.

Is it impossible to lose wheels now? I remember you could lose a whole wheel in dirt rally 1. 

Trust me, it's still possible. I think it requires slightly more effort than in DR1, at least when hardcore damage is not on, but it is still very possible.

I'll tell you this, given that I only care about stage rally, the fact that Season 4 is RX only means I don't have to figure out how to buy that too and can concentrate solely on the money I NEED for the 206😍

We could see him in Speed's car for this year, but otherwise I think he's more interested in rallying.

Yeah, you are correct. Oliver said he was focusing on Rally. At Subaru they still got Higgins and Pastrana as well. Andd they also hired Topi last year for a round.

Yeah, spot on. Aside from an appearance at Goodwood I don't think Oliver has sat in a rallycross car all year. Petter said a year or so ago that the focus for Oliver would be a career in rally, RallyX Nordic was just a stepping stone on the way to that. 

WRC2 is surely the next step forward for Oliver.

The Kalle vs Oliver fight will be interesting to watch in the future. I hope a few other talents join the party.

RBR had running photographers which were impossible to hit afaik. This was suggested before and they said it was actually quite a bit of work to get it done properly (anything involving animation is quite a bit of work idd). So probably only in the new title.

I want to say D2/D3 had it as well - you would see some standing in the middle of the road and sprinting back to jump the guardrail as you went screaming passed them. I also think CM said they aren't doing that anymore as it gave the higher ups a lot of stress trying to make sure it'd be impossible to have players go "GTA" on the crowds

@urgaffel already gets stressed enough when people try to run down his animals in the road, I can only imagine what would happen if we started adding bodies to the mix :classic_laugh:

Gran Turismo 4 did it. Fun part is, they expect you to be going fast, so if you just crawl through the sprites very jittery just slowly move out of the way.

Does anyone think there is any credibility in the 92 Legacy and 97 impreza gossip, or do we think it was more likely for a different game now? 

 

They could’ve been used to drum up some serious hype for the release of the new seasons, particularly the 97 impreza.

I certainly hope not as we all hope that there was some truth in them recording the sounds for both of those cars for them to be put in the game, I find it strange that the 97/00 wrc Impreza, the S9-S11 & S12-S12C Impreza haven’t been added, could it be a licensing issue? For me the 2dr wrc car and the group A car are the most iconic Subaru’s and both should be in the game no matter what. Codemasters seem to be able to use Prodrives cars for their games, M3, Porsche 911 and some of the Subaru’s but why haven’t the most iconic Subaru’s not been added yet is a question that we all want an answer to.

I wonder if the Legacy and 97 Impreza sound was recorded to implement in similar cars I.e. 97 Impreza sound being used on the 2001 Impreza in game?

97 wrc Impreza is slightly different sound to the 2001 Impreza

I don't think content beyond S4 is out of the question.

  • The Nissan Sunny F2 kitcar facebook post
  • The Legacy/'97 Impreza recordings
  • "Year One" pass

Also the simple fact content beyond season 4 hasn't been ruled out. I think that if they decided it wasn't happening we'd know about it.

I think by now it is more like an open business question. They are probably developing new content already, maybe with more people again after F1 release. But the decision if it will be for a new game or DLC is probably not made yet and dependent on wether they can earn enough money through DLC selling compared to the Alternative.
So nothing will be confirmed at this point, since they aren't sure yet if the investment into more DLC would be a net gain.
I am all for it though! Pump DR2 up to a truly magnificent sim. And I honestly don't know what features I would want from a new game, apart from more content and maybe even longer stages (but 16km is already at low WRC-levels, so it's less of a priority). And for just content, you could bring it to DR2 as long as the sales pay for themselves.

--------------------

Different thing: I produced a video with the Evo X, never used it before much. Noticed it is automatically set to sequential shift by the game. I was confused, but in the replay in the cockpit you also see only two pedals and the foot never presses a clutch. I always assumed the NR4 class is H-Shifted. What kind of transmission does the Evo have?

----------------------

I also noticed that in NZ, all the bigger puddles actually have animations and sound, when you drive through them. Wasn't there an argument, why this isn't the case in Wales? Wales really should receive a Weather Update.

----------------------

Judging by the "Year ONE" wording. it really sounds like a strong suggestion, that Seasons are intended to continue, as long as they are viable business. And I really hope the 99 or 97 Impreza is coming somewhere... It would give a proper partner for the Evo VI, now that we are not getting a 'millenial' class.
By the way, I noticed the new Pug actually looks good. How long do you think for an R5 to arrive? Maybe an idea for Year Two?

To be honest, in an eventual post-S4 content, any new rally would be awesome... Twisty tarmac is one of the first things that come to mind, so something like Corsica or Ireland. Then I'd actually like Codies to add new stages to the already existing locations, because roads do tend to get quite old overtime. A third long stage would go a long way into allowing to make long interesting events with different bits of road

A game with 12 rally locations and (finally) a Peugeot 206 is already pretty awesome if you ask me. Anything more would be incredible, and great, but pretty improbable if you ask me

You guys just aren't in the spirit of the gossip thread. 

I have been disappointed by my own theorizing on what might come to the game: imagining scenarios makes my expectations go up, and it's disappointing when they're not met. 

this is ridiculous: it's my own imagination that's made me disappointed in a product that I am just the consumer of. this is why DR 1 was so well-loved. there were no expectations. because of this, DR2 had a lot to live up to, and that combined with the bugs and stuff have hurt it, even though it's clearly the superior game.

I genuinely can't see the issue in this. That car looks too good not to throw money at her...

1996-subaru-impreza-wrc-97.jpg

That being said, there's one big issue with this one. The car is officially named Subaru Impreza WRC97. They can't use WRC. They could use the Prodrive codename and call it S3. They could call it Impreza WRX'97. OR, they could call it.....(dare I say it).... 22b? 😅

Part of me is still hoping for an extra Subaru besides 22b. This one:

 

And of course you can't bring this Subaru without bringing the Xsara Resultado de imagem para troll meme

It's a shame we don't have that iconic championship finisher stage as well ^^

it would be weird with all the Petter Solberg inclusion and influence in the game, as well as Phil Mills, not having the car they were champions with.
