DiRT Series - Where did stages/events get their inspiration from

Recommended Posts

Never really been into minecraft. Took a look at it because of the MS takeover.

But wouldn't it be great if we could work together to build dirt stages like this :)

Maybe MS know something I don't ...

Smelter has to be 'inspired by DirtFish (its got Dirt in its name after all)

I am going to add this:

The above may have been 'inspired by the rallycross track of Dirtfish Rally School, but it is definitely Houghton Michigan area








Slide show of the mine area, notice the parts laying around, similar to this part of the game

Here is information on the place where Codemasters visited:

The Smelter area is nearby can't find good pictures of it yet.  I will update when I find some.

Also working on the Nike Missile site that is also part of the Stage as well (yes a Missile launch site!)  




@justbiglee‌ after doing some research on all of this, I have to really commend the modelers and designers of this stage.  I don't know what the background is in figuring out the location to model from, but the detail that whizzes by that you DON'T notice is a shame that it cannot really be appreciated.  Please pass my kudos on to those that worked on this!

The Michigan areas from dirt 3 are all inspired by areas in and around Houghton Michigan. The specific rally is the Lake Superior Performance Rally that is part of the Rally America schedule.
