Hi guys,

- Career invitational events for Historic Cars
- Added 2 new R&D Programms and changed one. Lift and Coast is one of them in the game. Lee Mathers: "I've been enjoying having to manage the engine and gearbox. Requires planning and thought. I also love the fuel test Practice Programme."

Nothing is explained yet. Those are just some points Lee and Paul answered on Twitter.

Glad to see the female avatars are in, love them in Dirt 4 :)

yeah it is good to see them. I'm tempted to do a little role playing on the game this year as a hotshot female racer who makes a name for herself in the sport. What with that the new skill tree and the classic cars I think this year will be pretty good.

When you say 15 of each part is that just engine and gearbox or front and rear wings etc? 
im afraid no more further information about that. We have to wait until a full feature reveal from Codies

All good. I think there is no limit on wings and body work in the regulations. Not sure about suspension either, heard about no limit there

yeah now I've seen the skill tree I've got to admit I'm looking forward to it too. I was on the fence but now I've seen the new skill tree I'm sold.

With the game out in 4 weeks I suspect maybe a trailer a week from now until launch. As they haven' t done too much advertising yet. I've got to admit that had I not been a member of this forum I probably wouldn't have noticed they were bringing one out this year .As I've barely noticed any activity even here.

Yes i was hoping their was going to be a few trailers released over the hungarian gp weekend but their wasnt i hope they will release more details soon, and i do agree now ive seen the development tree im glad ive pre ordered it as last year did become more of a gimmick and never made much of a difference, the features list so far looks good as well

yeah I only just preordered it last night. I only delayed because I didn't want to end up buying another carbon copy of F1 2016. I enjoy 2016 but in terms of the R&D system it did fall rather short. I wanted a game that was worth playing through al 10 seasons not just the first 3/4 and then end up back at square one. Looking at that tree though it looks like it'll take quit a while in comparison to 2016' s system. Hopefully it's not possible to buy everything up though and it gives you options to roleplay things a bit. I suspect we'll only know that though once the game is out. As I do have an idea for a spot of roleplaying on 2017.

Yeah it looks like it will add something to the career mode, ive found it becomes quite stale but i guess it will feel like that as the drivers dont swap teams etc, but if this tree works it means you could be battling with different teams after a few seasons

yeah well I spend most if not all my time in the game in the career mode as I'm not really an MP person. I do spend time in the Time trial and GP mode as well in between seasons sometimes and kind of treat it as kind of a pre season testing mode. But mostly I'm in the career mode. Although I suspect I'll likely start with the Time trial and GP modes to start with in 2017 so I can find my ideal difficulty setting on the slider.

Somebody posted it in the forum somewhere 

Yeah it's in one of the video's but it's only a screenshot in a blink and you'll miss it moment.

It's in this thread

http://forums.codemasters.com/discussion/55089/hungary-gameplay/p1


You'll need to pause the vid in order to get a good look at it though. It's also in a foreign language Spanish I think so I don't really understand it.


CM will likely do a proper vid with a better look at it later though I hope.
