Dirt Rally 3 - Wish List

Recommended Posts

I'm a first time poster, long time reader, and Dirt Rally 2.0 is my most played game for the year – I absolutely love it 😃

I’ve been thinking about what I want from the next game and I reckon Codemasters should focus on more unique kilometres per location and increased stage length.

I would love:

  • Next gen game engine that can support stages 30+ kms long
  • 3 times as many unique kms per location (roughly 60 kms each)
  • A single game that is expanded over 3-4 years (the seasons for DR 2.0 have kept me coming back all year)

The biggest issue I have with the DR games (and Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo / WRC 8) is the lack of stages per location, there’s far too much repetition to feel like a real rally event.

Ideally Dirt Rally 3 should include all 290 odd kms that are already in DR 2.0 and add another 40 kms per location.

DR 3 should include all the current locations from DR 2.0 and add 2 new locations to give us 14 total events (Kenya and France are my picks).

 

So let's talk stages.

I love that the current stages are based in reality, and using Rally-Maps.com for inspiration, here’s some ideas for DR 3...

*Note - I didn't identify the real world locations, kudos to the Dirt sleuths here, here and here.
Stages highlighted in red include DR2.0 locations.

That's a good timetable and good requests indeed!

I would prefere a season 5 and 6 for DR2, for now :classic_biggrin:

 

Anyway, speaking of wishlist:

your wishlist +

a proper team managing +

some special events (like Montecarlo in '60s, without pit area and full of snow, ice and fear. or career events with real drivers) +

allowed livery modding (or a Forza Motorsport livery editor, let me dream)

if codemasters add new dlc the name of this dlc is "season 1 year 2 pass" because in ps4 the name dlc pack for1,2,3, 4 season is" year 1 season pass"

 

i hope the  year 2 season pass  come in Dr 2.0

I hope there are Season 5 and 6 for Dirt Rally 2.0 with new rallies and new rally cars
I would like that better than a Dirt Rally 3

I'd put Germany in launch content as there's no tarmac location (aside MC but it's also half ice.)
Then add one Asia rally like China or Malaysia / Indonesia.

 

But aside content wishlist, here's some improvements I'd like to see :

- real puddles with their own physics.
- better tarmac physics with more grip on both dry and wet.
- better out of the road physics where cutting in the wild really slows you and damage the car.
- better collision model where a small bump doesn't makes you barrel-roll 100 times but instead really damages the car. Make the hardcore damage model way more hardcore (not on tires or lights but all the car should break). Add one intermediate model. 
- more sunlight and weather options with volumetric clouds / fog. (not necessary dynamic)
- less shiny wet shaders.
- improved visuals for fir trees.

For me is good enough if they put the Toyota Celica st165 in the game.

Ill quote exatly what I said from a reddit post about the technical possibilities of dirt rally 3.0. https://www.reddit.com/r/dirtgame/comments/g1za6v/what_are_you_hoping_to_see_in_dirt_rally_30/?sort=new

"I believe adding more fidelity to the particle physics would make the rally atmosphere for the next ego engine more authentic too. If its possible to have a scaled down version of these examples below then I think dirt rally 3.0 would be on a new level.

car driving over water ignore rest of video

@00:16 flame exhaust particles. @1:16 dirt/sand/snow particles and tires generating smoke on tarmac.

@00:05 imagine if this kind of dust could come from your car interacting with the enviorment

imagine when you hit a tree some leaves will fall

Bending Vegetation. I think WRC 8 is already doing this one with stormy weather conditions, Codemasters.

trees breaking from impact this could apply to electric and light poles too

@00:14 authentic Doppler sound effects. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) wait for it."

I want 3 things:

1. Full VR mode

2. Better FFB for wheel setups (dirt 1 was better imo)

3. More unique stages/events/tracks etc.

Bonus: keep improving physics of course 😉
