Another week gone already but what an eventful week it’s been, the World RX beasts have had their final coat of wax and are covered up safe and secure in the service area. That’s right, the DiRT Rally World RX update is coming next week… Try not to scuff our new cars up too much.
It’s been a good week here in the studio as we have been wrapping things up for the launch of the FIA World Rallycross Update. A few weeks back I talked about how we were making changes to the rallycross cars based on the feedback we got from the drivers out in Höljes. Well, we have got those changes in and the cars are feeling great. They are a whole load more responsive and we have dialled in the setups so that the cars are much closer to what the drivers expect from their cars.
This has however meant that we had much less time to train and refine our AI drivers so when the pack comes out you may find that the computer opponents are a little bit on the slow side. We’ve opted for a safe approach here ensuring that the AI aren’t overly aggressive and making crazy mistakes but over the coming weeks we’ll be looking at the times that you guys are setting and the way that you are driving and making sure that we retrain our AI so that they can offer you a significantly tougher challenge in the next update.
A new feature we will be adding for this pack is a rear view mirror that operates on all camera views. This is obviously integral to Rallycross as it allows you to keep an eye on the drivers behind you. We had intended this feature to be turned on by default but we found it hits performance pretty hard on mid to low spec machines so we have made the call to turn it off by default. So if you want to give it a go and see if your machine can handle it then make sure you go into the graphics options and turn it on. I think that’s about it from me but I’ll see you soon on the next DiRT Show.
So there you have it Rally Cross is nearly here for Dirt Rally.
