Haven't done one of these in a while (been busy working though the last lot ;) )

For those newcomers #WishlistWednesday is a chance for you to ask for anything big or small you'd like to see adding to DiRT Rally.

This week you get just one wish and it needs to be either a new feature or an improvement to an existing one.

Post them up below and don't forget to like other ideas you like.

Multiplayer, single stage time trials similar to Trackmania. If you don't know how it works in Trackmania, you connect to a server and drive the same track as everyone else w/ unlimited attempts to set the best time you can before the time limit is up. There's no collision on cars of course, and you can toggle visibility if you'd rather they be transparent or invisible. I think this could be super fun in Dirt Rally. Sprint stages could have a 10 minute time limit, Long stages could have a 20 minute time limit. When time is up, drivers are rewarded with credits based on their position. Then, the server switches to another stage/car that's either chosen randomly by the server or perhaps voted on. If you want to take a break or watch someone else drive then you can enter spectating mode.

Obligatory request for fixed/better leaderboards.

Let's see, a new feature or an improvement to existent ones...

Replays then! Yes, you already have them, but the system could use more replay angles, a basic free-camera mode for screenshot taking and of course, the ability to save said replays for posterity.

Hi justbiglee, try to take in consideration the hole bunch of guys that are true keyboard players, for that reason I still think that the a.i drivers difficulty level in rally carrer mode is "stupid" my request is a "small" patch in the game that makes you chose the level of difficulty sim for hardcore steering whell people, pro, medium easy for keyboard or gamepad drivers...best regards  ....

Big stupid idea a just had, its a fact that you guys are having trouble with licencing of the wrc tracks and cars, why not try in another place for example the IRC championship they look much more open and probably looking for some good publicity of the almost dead championship, changing topic if you guys made a custom rally carrer mode where we could rite name of the championship and incorporate the rally stages we wanted...just idea

It would be nice if we could choose which tires to use for the stages between service.

The most of fun we could get at Monte with studs or no studs...

Or Soft and Hard compound for wet or dry conditions...

This would make the game more alive, you can gamble with your tires or just use the save ones.

1) Either the removal of the need for career mode to upgrade cars for league play, or the integration of career with leagues (get money, get car upgrades).

2) A plan for post-release content. Does not need to be public, announcing DLC before a game is released always seems to go wrong, so feel free to keep it under wraps.

3) If #2 is not going to happen a toolset for modders to supply tracks.

Thanks!

The Integrale and S4 desperately needs new sounds. They both share the pathetic whine of a Toyota Yaris that has been urinated upon to feel miserable. I know the criterias you at Codemasters must meet to record the real deal, but a better substitute until then would be swell. Something that growls, like these cars actually did. :)

Can you elaborate? I'd be really curious to know. I got the impression from reading about the Forza games that Turn 10 won't add a car unless they can get their hands on the real thing (though that could be part spin, part misremembering).

Let me that turn into my Wednesday wish too: new feature—a making-of video! I'd love to see a comprehensive look at how the cars, tracks, and physics of Dirt Rally are brought to life at Codemasters, from the real things to the screen.

More realistic time-gaps between AI-drivers. If you are two minutes after the first place on a stage that is four minutes then you should not be able to get top five as it is now. 30 seconds betweem first and last place is more realistic on a stage that is four minutes long.

I wish this could be done. The sound of the S4 with compressor + turbo revving up sound like a God talking.

Well, replay overhaul. RX is almost perfect replay wise, but we are many that want more trackside cams out on the stages!
+1
As a real rally, CMR and DiRT series fan, I also wish the whole replay with full trackside cameras &  helicopter camera (Helicam). :)

(P.S.)
Thanks for giving us the chance to post our wishes, justbiglee and the dev team! :)

@dwkGravey As you wish.

It's about many stars aligning.

1) Find authentic cars (preferably with a pedigree).
2) Car is in good running order and not a museum piece.
3) Owner is willing to transport to a location suitable for recording in the specific manner we need.
4) Owner is willing to do this at a price which does not wipe out the entire budget of the game.

As soon as we find them, we will record. Same for some other cars we have yet to source.

Cheers!

To be honest I think it would be better to look at some ERC rallies as well instead of always the same WRC ones, every other rally game adds them too.
ERC rallies have never been in games so far so that would make this game even more great and more unique compared to other (to be released) games.

You can never have enough classics. So more cars from the 60s and 70s that you don't see often. Saab 96, Volvo Amazon, Austin Healey, Ford Cortina Mk1, BMW 2002, Fiat 124 Spyder, Citroen DS, Peugeot 504, Renault 8 Gordini...

We don't need any more slow cars!


Not even these beauties?

  • Graphics toggle to disable Motion Blur, and only Motion Blur.
  • A way for people to access the dev build camera tools. It can be frustrating watching official trailers and screenshots with all kinds of cool angles that can't be recreated or surpassed in the release build. Doesn't have to be polished with a slick interface, just something that can be accessed if you're dedicated enough.
    It's all just console commands in games like Skyrim or Mass Effect, but the results can be epic.
I'd like to see a tool that filers out #wishlistwednesday posts that don't reply to the actual question being asked.
Oh, don't be so surly.
