DIRT Rally - CUSTOM LIVERIES, MODS & TOOLS, DISCUSSION ETC.

Recommended Posts

He guys and girls, Bought and downloaded the early access game yesterday and i must say it looks very good, sadly not a next generation game but it will do :-) Keep up the good work Codemasters. For starters the game looks good, feels good and sounds good. The roads are more narrow so that is a new challenge. Also the stages are long..YES. The menu also looks very good, simple, fast and gives you all the info you need although i miss the stage distance in the select menu. Anyway i wouldn´t be me if i didn´t release something within a day :-))) so here is my first mod and maybe i also release a few car liveries today.... The only thing i didn´t like about the game is the close chase cam so made me one that i like. i hope Codemasters releases an update with an extra camera position that is similar to the one i made. I made one for every car (17x in total, updates will follow with new cars) that is in the first early access release of the game.

My God you work fast! If you figure out a way to do the liveries, please share it with us - it wasn't working for me with Ryder's tool from DiRT 3 but I'm not sure what version I'm using so maybe that has something to do with it. It would export the specularity files but not the textures :neutral:

I would really like to see an INGAME livery editor.  Not that I don't appreciate your hard work @hoonhead always have!  But it would be great if we all could tweak and play around with liveries too.  They have it for GRID Autosport (not the best one) but its already done at Codie's so it could be somewhat ported.   What I would change is being able to upload jpg 'decals' or just upload an entire car jpg.  Release templates for the entire cars.  It would be great to not have to hack them into the game.

Also I have been complaining about the cameras for over a year on codemasters games.  Please just allow us to drop one down where ever on the stage or add many many cam positions and DONT AUTO SWITCH allow the user to do that.

Saving replays is also missing after all these years now.  All the cool kids are doing that now :)

That would ruin what's able to be done now though.
Vector livery editors, or God forbid the raster ones like TDU2 had, are all limited in their abilities compared to what's able to be done with Photoshop.

Things like sticker bombing can't be done with the vector editors, and would take forever to accomplish with a raster editor that didn't allow for imports.
You also can't knock things out back to a custom fading paint color in most of the in-game editors, with MCLA being the exception to that.
You can't stack multiple objects, then create an outline of those objects, to make a single semi-transparent object.

I agree, as you can never really have all the capabilities in game, as you do outside of it. I feel that it would be a huge waste of time and resources for CM to develop something more advanced in game that can only go so far.

Ryder: Is your livery editor compatible and, if so, could you point me at the latest version? It's been a long time... :)

The latest version can be found at http://petar.outer-heaven.net/downloads/

However, while this can open the pssgs, it will not work with the Dirt Rally liveries. Seems CM is using a new dds compression type which I'll have to program for. Unfortunately I'm very limited on time right now.

@Ryder25, Please Ryder25, we really need you. we have about 7.311.502.143 (and counting) people on this planet but you are the only one who can create/update the tool for us...please :-)

That impreza skin looks great. We need custom liveries badly, I was pretty disappointed to see that some of the classic cars don't even have one authentic livery.

@justbiglee is there a chance Codemasters can edit/update their DiRT Rally game in such way we can also edit/replace the livery select menu so when we have a new custom livery we can also match the menu with it. I think this is a huge thing for the modding community. 
The ability to add liveries with menu images would be even better because then you can keep the original liveries in the game so Codemasters cannot get into trouble with their paying ingame sponsors :-)

Just to clarify my post, I don't creat liveries, but I appriciate  those that make them, especially the authentic ones.  @NoOneNBA I'll take your word for that, since I don't really know much about creating them, thanks for the education.

That being said, I find it a real pain to load up the new ones in DiRT3 and all the hoops you have to jump through to get them to be added and not over write default ones.

From what I'm reading here, forget the editor.

So as a compromise, how about we ask them to include a load custom livery option.  You guys do your thing and post them, I can do them and just click a few ingame menus and boom your hard work automatically added to the collection.

taking this one step farther, could this be a steam workshop item that we choose via steam to add to the game?  Or Codie's host a special place that shows up in game for us to dl and add.

sorry I really didn't mean to step on anyone's toes.  You guys do really great work!

And my post was more intended as a "be careful what you wish for" warning.
You might get it.

He all, got 2 new mods for you all.

DiRT Rally - On Screen Display Mod

This mod changes the original on screen display and then espacially the rev bar color and the schift ring color. The rev bar color changes from white to orange to red (orange is added). The shift ring color is changed slightly to match the orange in the rev bar.

For more info and the download you can visit my website here:

http://www.rallygamer.com/dirtrally/mods/on-screen-display-mod.html




DiRT Rally - Pace Notes Mod

This mod changes the original on screen pace notes. The differences with the original is that now only 5 different colors are used instead of the 10 colors used in the original. The new colors are more distinctive. Green for the fast corners, yellow for the slower corners, orange for the dangerous corners, red for the hairpins and white is for general use. Together with the spoken pace notes and those fewer colors it is easier to know what is coming.

For more info and the download you can visit my website here:

Hello there.
First, thanks to Codemasters for the Early Access release of "DiRT Rally". I (and maybe everybody here) have been a great CMR Series fan, and finally the great rally game with CMR atmosphere is back.
Also, thanks for making it possible for us to Mod this game as always. I look forward to the further development and the updates. :)

@ hoonhead

Thanks for this thread and lots of Mods, Skins and the information as always. It's nice to see the existing skins work for DiRT Rally, too.
BTW, I want to post the screenshots and the videos of this game, and may I use your skins? Of course, I'll never forget the credit to you. Thank you. :)

@ Ryder25.

Thanks for your continued support for EGO tools. Without your tools, we could not have done most of the Mods. I look forward to the release of the new EGO PSSG Editor. Thank you. :)

@hoonhead I love those mods you made for the speedo and the notes, generally in most games I leave the UI be but I seriously think those are a major improvement, so thanks! And oh man I'm so excited that @Ryder25 got the tool working, thank you both so much for working on that! Can't wait to start making my team livery :smile:

I wonder if that if those are coming from console players? I haven't spent enough time within the cockpit to know what proper FOV should be for each car.

@Codemaster, please include a slider option to slide either slide the seat or the FOV entirely.

@Hoon, Good to see you again getting busy.
@Tommy, can't wait for your videos and learn some tricks or two.  I can't shave enough seconds.

Hey all, here are my first liveries for the game, a Colin McRae Rally Pack :-)

Btw just so you all know some liveries are not the same as the ones from DiRT3 (besides that they also have different dds files inside the pssg file and that some dds images have a different resolution), i noticed a difference in the Mini Cooper S ingame and i even had to change the glass alpha channel for the Subaru Impreza 1995 otherwise i had windows that i couldn't see trough. For that reason i also redone some work so the downloads are not just ported from DiRT3 but i actually replaced/edited individual dds files so the downloads are now the same as how they appear in the game.

You can download the custom liveries here:

Subaru Impreza 1995 - Colin McRae Network Q RAC Rally 1995
