Recommended Posts

My first leg was really bad. Made some time back on the second leg though.

Just finished the stages, too. 2nd stage I was only 3 seconds faster than Dodge. Had 1 bad crash on stage 1, other than that, pretty smoothly.

At one point on stage 2 I ran into something that stopped me. Just as I was backing up the game reset me and gave me a 15 sec penalty. If it just let me get going again I would not have lost as much time. :( Still had fun though. Then I did Finland in my Fiat Abarth and got 2nd in Career mode.

Yeah, the time penalties are brutal and sometimes make no sense in the first place. But the cleaner you get with your rallying, the less you'll have to deal with those eventually.

Hello hello fellow rally fans can anyone send me a link so I can join the domestic battery League?

Haven't got dirt 4 yet but by the sounds of it it's not really that good but I hear it is a control on a controller how many you guys use a controller as well is there anyone who uses steering wheel?

We'd love you to join us. I will run this event with a controller but I have a wheel. I don't know if it will work on PS4 though.

Make sure you're signed in and have your platform set to PS4 as well. Once you're signed in, go to that link and search for "XDBX Casual" and join. :)

I'm using a controller for everything right now. No extra cash for a proper wheel set yet and I don't see much point in buying the cheapest ones either.

T150 isn't bad for racing on a budget. I have one as I've had my T300 replaced a couple of times and didn't wanna be without in the meantime. Probably 120 pounds. Was quite decent on DiRT Rally.

Some guys use the T80 as it has no distracting forces, just a basic bungee cord. Probably 50 pounds.

It doesn't need to cost a months rent ;)

Post some videos!

The prices are almost double around here. If I can find something online that'll cost me less than local, I'll probably get a T150. Not sure about the T80...

 

There's a handful of rally videos on my YT channel, but I'll try and get more uploaded soon.

Nevermind. This is all Event 3. I did miss Event 2.

Not to worry, the first season is more of a test run anyway. Plenty of things learned already about setting one up properly. Next season will be smoother in terms of how it's run.

Just finished playing dirt rally trying to upgrade some of my cars did the last event. in Wales I was going alright but I know that stage which is the first one there's a square right on the last sector (same corner that @Dodge)  think and I lost about 10 seconds there silly mistake of breaking too late good fun but slamming on handbrake hoping to make the corner

We are. I had to buy the Mini to start the event but since it's brand new to me it doesn't have enough miles for upgrades so its stock anyway.

Well that's career mode cars on, you should be able to pick whatever from the class, provided it's off.

Cars that aren't stock have a massive advantage.

I thought I had the mini at first, but had to buy it too in the end for this. I'll leave personal cars off in the future, but buying the Mini wasn't that bad. After all, it's cheap and can be quite fun to drive.

@Beez@Dodge@Road2fury@LimeGreenLegend@skip_rat

Test season/season 1 has ended now and the final leaderboard looks like this:

  1. Proto - 58 Pts
  2. Fury - 50 Pts
  3. Dodge - 42 Pts
  4. Beez - 36 Pts

 

I'll set up the next season tomorrow and it will have stock car(s), it'll be longer with more stages per event and there will be more time to finish each event. More details on that once I've set the season up.

 

My last event of the test season went down the drain and here's the footage of that and a bit more from our first season:

Event 2, Greece, Stage 2: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/205326781

Event 3, Wales, Stage 1 & 2: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/205327780

 

Can't wait to start our 1st proper season! :)

The new season has been set up now.

This one consists of 4 events: Germany (3 stages), Wales (5 stages), Finland (6 stages), Sweden (4 snow stages).

We'll be using the stock F2 Kit Cars, which means a choice between the Seat Ibiza Kit Car and the Peugeot 306 Maxi Kit Car.

You can usually expect a service area & tuning break after every pair of stages. There will also be progress saving possibilities before the last Germany stage, before most stages in Wales, before stage 3 & 5 in Finland, before every stage in Sweden (if it works as it should).

There will be 1 event each weekend for 4 weeks in a row and you'll have 3 to 3 and a half days to complete the stages for each event. 1st event starts tomorrow.

Event 1 - Rally Germany: 06:00/6am UTC Dec 1 - 06:00/6am UTC Dec 4

Event 2 - Rally Wales: 06:00/6am UTC Dec 8 - 06:00/6am UTC Dec 11

Event 3 - Rally Finland: 14:00/2pm UTC Dec 14 - 06:00/6am UTC Dec 18

Event 4 - Rally Sweden: 20:00/8pm UTC Dec 21 - 06:00/6am UTC Dec 25

 

Seeing that Dodge is playing from 3rd person view, I also felt like it would be fair to mention that unless any of you actually hate 1st person, I recommend using or at least trying FPV out, since it's just better to drive that way in almost every way. It's definitely a lot easier to "feel" the car and control it in 1st person, for me at least.

I’ll only be playing using vr.  You can play third person in vr, which is really weird, but I’ll be doing it all first person.  Not gonna expect everyone to play in first person though, whatever you all prefer is cool with me :)

I'll try it, but I'm an old school gamer and 3rd person is how I learned to drive in games.

      DiRT 4 came out on PS4 in June 2017 and it's a rally game different from it's predecessor DiRT Rally. It caters more to players not very familiar with rallying or just looking for a casual rally experience (much like what you could find from DiRT 3), but has plenty of different modes and gameplay improvements to make it fun for anyone.
      [DiRT 4 is on sale on the US PS Store for $14.99 until May 22!
      DiRT 4 is currently on sale on the UK and EU PS Store for a mere £24 for PS Plus members until 23/11/17 11:59pm]
      Main features of DiRT 4:
      There's a choice between Arcade and Simulation handling mechanics and one can easily switch between the two at any time between rally events should they wish to do so. The stage rallies have a feature called "Your Stage" that creates custom rally stages using certain settings and parameters chosen by the player or generated randomly, which means that there's a huge amount of partly similar (stages are made of bits and pieces and the same pieces show up in different parts of different custom stages), but unique rally stages in the game. There's a rich progressive singleplayer career mode, an optional fun trial mode "joyride" (returning from DiRT 3), a fully customisable lobby multiplayer mode "jam session" for all the available rally types, a competitive stage rally MP mode "Pro Tour", daily/weekly/monthly events with leaderboards & big cash rewards, and a solo practice session where you can hone your skills with any car you want. You can also build your own team, pick sponsors, create your team livery and use your personal rally cars in almost every game mode. There's plenty of livery and sponsor options as well as enough space in your garage for over 100 vehicles (after a few upgrades). Loan cars are available for use at all times if you want to try the cars out before you buy a personal one. Earning cash is a much faster process than it is in DiRT Rally, with also more vehicles and team facilities to spend it on. DiRT 4 also has a pretty damn good soundtrack for a rally game.
       
      Available Rally Types and Locations:
      Stage Rally, Historic Rally:
      Fitzroy, Australia Tarragona, Spain Värmland, Sweden Michigan, USA Powys, Wales Footage: all the outrageous things that can happen in one rally stage:
       
      Rallycross:
      Lydden Hill, England Höljes, Sweden Hell, Norway Montalegre, Portugal Lohéac, France  
      Landrush (stadium truck/buggy racing):
      California, USA Nevada, USA Baja, Mexico Footage: buggy racing:
       
      Landrush vehicles: Speedcar Xtrem (crosscart), Larock 2XR Buggy, Jackson Pro-Truck 2, Jackson Pro-Truck 4
       
      Watch more videos from my DiRT 4 Playlist on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3Mx-66MNeVZ1iE_PCy4V70ZAZeiqYIPw
       
      Personally, I love both DiRT 4, which is an immensely fun high-quality rally game, and DiRT Rally, which offers tons of enjoyment through a very authentic rally simulation. I continue to play both and would love to play either with any of you from time to time if you have or decide to get either DiRT game.
