Tarmac Terrors Update - Now Live

Recommended Posts

Please add another tarmac rally, we definetly need it for those much cars to drive them:
How about "tour de corse competition pack"
It have to include:
-12 dificult and small tarmac stages of corse, with crossing Villages and drive along the coast.
-Renault R5 maxi, Group B rwd class 
-Alpine A 110, 1970 class 
-Citroen Xsara Kitcar, F2 class 
-Renault Clio Williams Maxi, F2 class 

It would be epic if you could make it real.

I reckon they should use an engine rev.
Make it car-dependent too. Because attention to detail.
Yes, if you want nothing else to improve - there is only a small audio team.

I'd sooner focus on the things that really matter rather than spend days trawling multi GB recordings trying to find relevant revs.

It has been considered, but after all, it's just an loading alert.

I'm watching Latvala pacing through the Panzerplatte stage from last year on WRC Plus. It's so damn cool when he gets to the part I did this morning in the daily. "Hey! I know this stage!"

The more I do the German stages and the more I watch them to their full extent on WRC Plus, the less I feel the grip is a problem in the game.

really? If ever you are able to be spun and show me looking back. it is impossible. It is too easy to control as you master drifting car. show me a video where this happens in dirt rally in a WRC car and I believe:

in dirt rally at low speed it is impossible for this to happen. You can always avoid very easily.

Do you have driving aids on or something? (I'm still not saying it's  perfect and a little more progressive grip loss is needed maybe) But yes I  reckon I can do most of that. Especially rotating my self backwards. I can do that with my eyes shut. In fact I wish I didn't  do quite so much as it's not helping my daily times much lol.

I didn't say it was perfect, but it's really not that far off as some of you guys shouts about.

BTW, I found a possible bug. Do a custom on the German stages, head to setup. Look at it then press the default setup button. All the sliders are pointing at other values than the ones you thought was default. This only seems to be the case in Germany though.

Obviously I do not use any driving aids. I really love this game, I think it will become the reference simulator the last 10 years, but we have to be fair and help developers to make it even more perfect. Just needs a little more and everything will be lost progresova perfect. Watch video subaru, in dirt rally , a WRC car does not have that power. It is impossible to make a mistake and be excessive skidding and looking back. http://youtu.be/ZldBEOweNqo

I hope to be cleared, but for that, we need help from everyone.

Here is a video that tries to show the problems of understeer when cornering. It is not just grip problems, but also physical and setup.

I dont think the setups showed on that video are the best way to drift a car (or demostrate nothing). In fact, those setups are so weird, its normal that the car reacts just bad. Not sure... but reminds me the open differential from RC cars.

obviously the car is configured wrong. It is to show that the car has understeer forever.

Hmmm not sure. I can't remember  what I did  now. I think in the advanced  set up I put a 75 / 25 rear / front centre diff ant stiffened  the front shocks and that worked really  well for me. And if my own WRX was anything to go by it did have tendency to under steer a bit if you didn't  really kick the back out. 

I think tho at the end of the day some cars are better than others. And the stock scoob dose suck a bit until you tune it out.

The stock scooby has 90/10 front/rear center diff if I recall correctly. No wonder it understeers.

On the Steam forum, a user found a bug with the Lancia 037: with the default settings files it has a front differential. Other RWD cars have all front diff settings on 0, except for the 037, which has pretty high settings. If you set those to 0 in the files, it suddenly behaves similar to the other RWD cars in the game, and on tarmac it's suddenly pretty stable.

edit: Kit Cars seem to have a rear diff. Removed it from the 306 and it felt more direct to me, although very skiddy in Monte Carlo. Had to fiddle around with the rear suspension to make it halfway controllable there.

I since restored the original files, because I don't want to mess with online events and leagues (or be suspected to cheat), but please fix, Codies.

Yes... I always set it to 0/100 actually (which is 65% rear after the update iirc), because with maximum oversteer it feels just right to me (that is, without changing rear diff settings).

That is a strange one. Hopefully the team are aware of it.

Well this pach intro the Error 41 on boot to me, also my system has over 120 GB of free space on C:\ Drive.
You"ll need to work on this error more, It angers me that there is no way to roll back the game to pre TT pach so I can play.

The German stages are  my favourite! The tarmac here feels spot-on.

Never really liked how the hillclimbers felt on Pikes Peak tarmac, but maybe I just suck and need to get used to their overpowered-ness.

So will the Baumholder stages get a refresh? Add some smiley faces and knock the nose off the Tornado? :p

Hello guys,

I was bored so I did some research on the German stages and plotted them on Google maps.

You can find them here:
Oberstein: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6692575
Hammerstein: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6692583
Combined: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6692580

As you can see, the finish of the Oberstein stage is right before the start of the Hammerstein stage. It should be possible to link them up in the game to end up with a 20+ km. stage.
