It's been a few weeks since we last did this (sorry).

This week we'd like to get back on to the topic of new features (as in something we haven't thought of yet)

So close your eyes, make a wish and let us know what's the most important feature you'd like to see us add to DiRT Rally. 

Be sure to like/awesome any other ideas you really like too.

I was about to make a different thread about this but maybe it's better to post it here :)

Spectator mode for multiplayer rally
  • Here's how it would work:
  1. You would see an option in the server/lobby list (depending on how the multiplayer will be) to join the session as spectator
  2. Before you enter the session, you would get a map of the stage where you can see every spectator area of the stage (where all the virtual spectators are)
  3. You would be able to select one of those spectator areas which you think is a good place to watch
  4. After loading is complete and you're positioned in the area you selected, you could move the camera with your mouse (free-look)
  5. There would be a HUD which would show the starting order of the cars
This would be a really exciting feature which nobody has done yet :) So it would be special and realistic because first time ever people would be able to watch rally virtually, but basically in same way as in real life. Also maybe there could be some voice chat implemented into game so you could speak with other spectators while watching rally :)

Well, for me, personally, I would prefer a more evolved replay system, with more available camera angles and a photomode perhaps (no need for extra filters or post-processing, just a free camera that we can move around when the replay is paused). For other smaller improvements, I have threads on the suggestions forums about mudflaps and that automated engine rev before the start of the stage you might want to look at.

EDIT: Just noticed the suggestion from the user below, saving replays has been something I've been wanting in a Codemasters game for a while.

I'd love the option to create your own driver. 

I'm not necessarily asking for an in-depth career mode, but just the ability to have my own driver, with my own name and a created co-driver on my car bodywork or glass, without having to request a livery off somebody, or create one myself.

Dynamic and evolving stage surface


Conditions of the stage would evolve depending on number of cars that have driven over it and on weather conditions    for example ruts would develop quickly on a wet gravel road when 30 cars drove over it,  cleaning would slightly improve grip for cars further down the order

I'd love a random stage generator, for online.

The people I race with all love the thrill of doing blind runs, when a new user-created stage releases for one of the other games we play.
There's something masochistically appealing about that balancing act of speed vs. safety, while approaching the unknown at break-neck speed.

Copilot mode for multiplayer (basically have one player driving the car, the other telling him where to go).

And, as a reminder, we need to have the goddamn Celicas (I add a S because I want both the ST185 and the RWD group B model, the TCT, chassis number TA64).

Seriously Codemasters, at this point :

Clutch + H shifter overhaul 

  • Clutch + H shift is still not working - (drops gears, to narrow clutch windows for gear engagement, reset to neutral on miss shift)
  • It would be nice to be able to use the clutch even with sequential gears

Fanatec Clutch pedal still not working or registering at all. Would love to see this fixed. Any other ideas I have posted in the suggestion forums, changing tire types before races, more manual control for headlights (lows and brights), ignition switch instead of automatic, wiper control (sometimes these automatically turn on for no apparent reason)
Other than that, I would like to see more stage conditions, have a few time of day settings (morning, noon, sunset, night) each with clear, cloudy and rain. I would also like to see an improvement to car shaders, not a big deal, but why can't dirty cars look pretty? The stages look FANTASTIC, but the cars are a little under polished (or too polished, they're a bit mirror like)

Hello!!  Happy 17th Anniversary!!!

Well to begin I`d prefer if possible to solve these actual issues:

False Game Start, Steam reinstalling 1 % then message Servers busy error 41, had to make a Game Verification Cache and after it works again. Happens very frequently.

Friends Leader board not showing user time set, it only shows last attempt. Cannot compare with friends and see how much you improve against friends and last attempt.  
Split leaderboards per car and weather conditions. This is for me the most important feature.

Option for TV Replay and heli cam Only and possibility to save replays in hard disk.

After Finland and Sweden Stages, maybe next year as downloads, paid or not. Make some other Countries Rallies like Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Japan. It would be nice to see you can support and add more paid downloads features in a long term, instead of having a Dirt Game each year.  You have an awesome base game till now so if business allow you can develop for more time.

For Mods, pls allow at least liveries Mod.

Would be nice also some other legend Old Cars like Toyota Celica and any Mitsubishi Lancer.

Thanks and Regards

Customizable driver: to be able to choose from the ten male and female driver faces in the characters/textures directory. Player's first initial and last name on the side of the car, and flag on the side and roof scoop. Female co-driver option.

1. Ability to drive any car on any track. For example drive standard rally car on Pikes Peak or drive trailblazer on every rally stage. At least in custom race.
2. Show stage plan while choosing stage in custom race.
3. Choose and hire co-pilot with different voice pitches would be also nice. Maybe also male and female voices.
Thanks.

I would very much like to have a multiplayer mode where up to four buddies can play this rally game in the same room at the same computer. The old WRC games had this mode. I think it was called hot seat. This was so much fun when you had some buddies coming over for some gaming.

Happy birthday!
Here is what I would like to see:
- Tyre choice
- Import / export car setups
- Some table where to store my personal times and compare with others (friends / worldwide)
- More tracks and locations (I really miss the USA rally from CMR04 if I remember correctly)
- Last, I am not particularly good, but I have serious doubts regarding some times achieved when participating to online events, specially when you have a 30 seconds difference between #1 and #2 on a 5 minute stage. Any chance to improve anti-cheat control?
Cheers

Option to save car configuration after a stage. At many times I've made adjustments to my car in service area, run two stages and then forget to save them as a preset. Or made changes before the last two stages, but can't save them because the race finishes.

Or maybe just have a "last used (location)" autosave.

yes this is very annoying.you should be able to save loadouts at any point.things like this and placing and race times are basics.shouldnt need to be mentioned.

I heard too many negative comments about F1 2015 online system (something that called hopper or so) which i guess its a matchmaking system , and no choice for cutsom lobbies..
So once multiplayer comes for DIRT RALLY we want classic lobby list as much detailed is possible ... And in my opinion you must not add playlist choice at all , cause it will happen the same with GAS  just some moths after  release date..
The custom lobbies will be a desert and the only choice you will have is to go to playlist to play the boring repeatable events without being able to take the advantage of the DLC content you have pay for.. (if ever come for DIRT RALLY) :#

Smoother handling on asphalt..

Spectate mode when you join in the middle of an online event , and text chat both in lobbies and in race ( we ask for this thing before Grid 2 realase and CM said that is technically too hard or impossible , Dirt rally is made with a new graphics engine new codes , new stucture,  no excuses anymore)

1. A different vehicle recovery, without countdown and similar at RBR.. spectators at the roadside help to put the car on the road. In case of a serious accident in which the car is irrecoverable, a movie in which it operates the rescue helicopter.

2. Presence of photographers at the roadside, which move when the car arrives.

3. Sequential gearbox with clutch.

Sorry for my bad English! I'm sure you have all the potential to create the best rally simulator ever!

We need a way to crack that bdl file and mod the engine sound ASAP..............................................................  :'(

Why? 
Because they sound like cartoon engines.
Which car(s)? This game has some of the best car audio i've ever heard. Some of the cars don't have their final audio on them yet either.

I'd love the AI to be editable, both in names, skills and the car they're attached to. It would presumably be fairly simple to open up, but it would be great to be able to drive against the likes of (in my 70s example) Rohl and Alen in Fiats, Vatanen and Waldegard's Escorts and Munari's Lancia. I can't deduce exactly how it works at the moment, but it could add a big level of immersion for me if this could be edited, and it wouldn't affect anything online.
