Stefan-----are you satisfied with the way it's evolving? I haven't bought it yet but probably will soon. The content seems to be growing fairly quickly.

Yes, I am. :) The tracks and cars look and feel great. I think you get a good rally sim for a fair price.
The development team has very good interaction with the fans and listen to their input.
If you like a rally sim especially with hitoric cars you cant do any thing wrong with this game. :)

It’s time for version 0.8 and we are returning to our rally roots with the mighty Flying Finland pack. We’ve added 12 new stages from Finland, the world’s fastest rally and two iconic cars driven by our local heroes from one of the greatest battles in rally championship history.

Add to this a new game mode and loads of fixes and features and this pack is almost as big as those Finnish jumps and crests.

Oh, and did we mention mouse support for the menus? You did want that right...?

So here is what’s new:

    12 new rally stages near Jämsä, Finland
    All new 2000s vehicle class
    2 new cars - Subaru Impreza 2001 and Ford Focus RS Rally 2001
    Custom Championships – You can now tweak the number of events, stages and AI difficulty. This will mean that you can set up an event that suits the amount of time you have available and get rewarded accordingly.
    Mouse Support! – Yep you asked for it so here it is. It’s still a work in progress so please give us your feedback on how we can improve it.
    We’ve reworked the handling on our 60s, 70s, 80s RWD and 2010s classes – these changes have seen improvements to the way we model suspension and tyres, along with engine and aero rework they really make the cars feel a lot more dynamic to drive.
    We’ve updated the engine audio for the 1995 Subaru Impreza in the Group A class. We’d like to say a massive thank you to Ryan Champion for letting us use his awesome car for the recording!
    We’ve wrapped our replays so you can rewind from the start of a replay to watch the final section of your run much faster than you could before.
    We’ve added a new ‘Invite Friends’ option in the lobby to make it easier for you to get the people you want into your PVP races.



Here’s what we’ve fixed:

    The audio FX levels for the surfaces and kick up have been brought back so that you can hear all that gravely goodness.
    We sent our Rallycross AI drivers to the opticians so that they can now see when they need to avoid other cars when they are approaching the joker entrance.
    Now that they can see better they are also setting faster laps.
    We’ve fixed the camera clipping in certain camera angles when you changed the Field of View.
    We’ve made some Hyper threading fixes that should now prevent those annoying stuttering issues that some of you were having.
    We’ve stopped the Engineer contract lengths and costs from being affected when competing in league events.
    Toggling Push to Talk or enabling/disabling voice communications through the pause menu is now actually working.
    The Reset Timer has now been increased to 15 seconds when attempting to get back on track. I know we said that before but this time it is actually in.
    Cars will no longer roll over on the start in PVP races, ROFL.
    We’ve made sure that the cars are visible on the start line even when collisions are turned off in PVP – they will still ghost during the race though.
    Your PVP opponents won’t be showboating and driving around with the handbrake on anymore.
    The gear setup will no longer be changing between stages without a service area.
    We’ve fixed those odd camera angles that were being used in spectate mode.
    The miles driven using owned vehicles in PVP now accrue towards unlocking upgrades for that vehicle.
    When viewing a replay using an interior camera, the speedometers now show the correct speed for all vehicles.
    We’ve fixed a whole host of other stuff too but they were too boring to call out in this list.

I love the new update! It's brought a bunch of AWESOME finnish stages and I can now tweak the FOV again. The clutch and gears are working and so is my steering wheel.

Just fantastic. Video to follow!

The guys that are developing Dirt Rally are the guys that did Real Rally Italian MOD for Richard Burn Rally. :)

I like the physics. It is a simulation.
It has become my new racing addiction (besides GPL ;) )

Dirt Rally Modern Masters Update released (Dirt Rally v0.9)
https://www.youtube....h?v=-9zAEAeBO3w

Quote

New R4 class with 2 cars (Subaru Impreza WRX STI & Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X)
2 new cars added to 2000s class (Ford Focus RS Rally & Citroën C4 Rally)
v.2 Car Handling on R4, Group B 4WD and Group A
Additions and Community Requests:
Stage distance and elevation is now shown in stage information screen
Steering rotation in cockpit now matches actions of player when the driver arms are not shown.
Manual control for headlights and wipers
New liveries featured on some cars including the Repsol livery on the Lancia Delta
Countdown timer added for the last 60 seconds of a Rallycross race
Grid Order and Assists added to session options in PVP
Player preferences is now available in the Lobby and Online Service Area
· Fixes

o Fixed the CPU detection so the correct thread strategy is chosen for your PC. This fixes the stuttering issues that we may have introduced in v0.8, sorry about that!

o The achievement “Visceral... but in the correct meaning of the word” is now only unlockable when meeting the required criteria. This should mean it is a proper challenge to unlock again.

o The timing of some co-driver calls for Finland have been adjusted, they won’t be as early in some places. Also, they’ve got a bit braver so they’ve raised their volume a bit too.

o Advanced Custom Wheel configurations are now saving correctly, Clutch deadzone and saturation settings will now be saved with wheel settings too. Yay!.

o Animal protection services have been on the phone so we’ve had to move the wildlife on some stages to safety.

o Issues with systems crashing at the start of a stage when using AMD Crossfire are now resolved.

o The game will save after you receive your rewards from online events – yeah, they didn’t do that before.

o Fixed a crash that would occur if you exited to the menus in a Rallycross event at the semi-finals .

o Fixed the Logitech G29 actionmap so you can navigate the menus correctly – we finally got hold of one to test it out.

o Fixed repair puncture OSD text remaining on screen after the player retires.

o Fixed the wrong points being displayed for entrants when any of the reverse grid options were enabled in PvP.

o “Gotta Get Me One of These” and “Any Given Sunday” achievements both now unlock when completed in any relevant online event.

o Spectating another player crash at high speed in PVP will no longer break the camera changing system.

o The mouse cursor will now hide when the mouse is not moved for a short period of time, solving the issue where the mouse cursor would remain on screen when played in windowed mode.

o AI difficulty levels should now be working within league play.

Insanely enjoyable, probably the best fun I've had with a steering wheel :drive1:

Never felt more in control of a car (well, most of the time ;)) while twirling the wheel 900 degrees from one lock stop to the other :D
