Version 1.16 Update Discussion

Recommended Posts

 

Hello everyone.

 

With the release of Version 1.16 of DiRT Rally 2.0 we have reached the final planned update for the game.

We're not ruling out future updates entirely (however they're unlikely), but understandably, the Rally team is placing a heavy focus on future projects.

 

As such, we will not have the traditional "bug reporting thread" for 1.16. The Support forum is still open should any major issues arise that affect all players (server outages etc.) but for the minor stuff, do not expect any further tweaks and fixes unless we say otherwise.

 

That being said, you all still want to chat about 1.16 and your experiences with it so here's a thread and Patch Notes 🙂

Version 1.16

September 28, 2020

Content:

  • New car: Ford Fiesta R5 MKII

    Note:
    Car is available to all players in modes outside of My Team.
    To unlock the car for use in My Team, take part in a DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series Qualifier and you'll get it when the Event Week ends.

 

Cars:

  • Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 - Updated engine audio based on new recordings of real-world car.
  • Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 - Updated rear-view mirrors to show reflected images.
  • Ford Escort MK2 - Updated rear-view mirrors to show reflected images.
  • Porsche 911 RGT Rally Spec - Updated rear-view mirrors to show reflected images.

 

FIA World Rallycross Championship:

  • Removed AI driver names which were mistakenly appearing when using 2019-spec cars.

  • Resolved issue where Used tyres were displaying as New in Service Areas.

 

Miscellaneous:

  • Added ability to select Paraguay as a driver nationality.
  • Made various minor (not notable) bugfixes across the game.

 

This is currently the final update planned for DiRT Rally 2.0.

The Ford Fiesta R5 MKII will be unlocked for all players to purchase in My Team Garage menu in early 2021, however this does not require a game update.

Update is rolling out now, so expect some server downtime for an hour or two.

Nice....but where is the Fiesta R5 MKII? I did take part in the World Series Qualifier's, not all of it, but i thought that wasn't necessary.

Thanks for the latest ever DR2.0 update guys!
Can't wait to hear about DR3.0 as well... 😉

Thanks for the national flag feature on the new Fiesta MK II R5 on top of the car. 😮

It should be where your Rewards are for the usual things like Daily Challenges and such.

[Update: We're investigating]

 

 

Also, for those that want to hear the anti-lag:

Can't wait to give the Fiesta a go! Fingers crossed it also comes with a plain livery (or two) as well.

Maybe I did something wrong, no MK II for me in My Team 😞

The Golf GTI R5 sounds great btw...

We're checking regarding the My Team reward of the Ford Fiesta R5 MKII, but in the meantime you can drive the car in Time Trial.

Sound of Polo R5 after update is just a masterpiece! 🤩🤯 I don’t want to drive any other R5 car. This is just perfect! Exactly as it sounds in real life. Love it!

I've never used My Team, so it would make sense for the Fiesta to be available right off the bat for single players, so thanks for that!

Looking forward to hearing this as well. The Polo has a very distinctive off-throttle noise in real life, be good to see if the CM audio squad have captured it.

Can only see it in Time Trial, tried it on random Scottish stage and beat my PB with a Fiesta MK1 by 12 seconds, no set up or anything just straight out of the box, sounds great too.😀

So Fiesta didn't unlock for anyone in My Team it seems. Same here. Was thinking of doing the two R5 weeklies with Fiesta but nope.

Also UI info is still wrong on lots of cars despite that the patch overwrote ALL cars. Would have been a pretty good opportunity to fix that since they were all re-downloaded but nope. Still UI says that M1 is front engined, 911 is mid-engined, Impreza supercar is manual etc. Might seem inconsequential but you'd think professional developers who work on cars would be embarrassed not to get such things right.

"Hi my name is Dave, my job is to make cars for a rally sim, and I believe BMW M1 is front-engined!" Just, no.

hello  since the newest update when i complete stages in a club , i can see the times ingame but if i check it in the browser, there is no time for anybody even that 5 people completed all the stages. https://dirtrally2.dirtgame.com/clubs  so in this site the times are not existing but ingame the times are there.

Thanks, I'll pass it on.

 

That would be a website thing rather than a game thing, so hopefully a quick fix 🙂

Yes, they definitely did it! For me it is the best sounding car in this game. 99.9% like in real life. Top!

That's a bold statement! Sounds promising though, hopefully I won't have to wait half the night for the download! :classic_laugh:

Same here. I set up valid time in all qualifiers both for Rally and Rally Cross, but Ford Fiesta R5 MKII didn't appear in My Team.
I have it only in time trail and custom championship.

I can provide screenshots each week, if necessary.

It's a bug! PJTierney has already said this (and I'm affected too)... Please be patient and they will resolve the issue! 😉

So the real big thing in this update is a new car that completely destroys the best balanced class with his performance?

Such a shame 😢

I have to say, I'm a little disappointed.

The coloured buttons on the wheel of the new Fiesta are flickering all the time, looks pretty awful to be honest.


But it sounds really nice!
