    *************************WARNING! DO NOT USE WITH ONLINE/MULTIPLAYER FEATURES AS IT WILL TRIGGER A VAC BAN WHICH IS PERMANENT! ONLY FOR OFFLINE USE************************

    We want introduce you all the RFPE Mod for DiRT Rally. This Mod reflects our passion for the motorsport world and exclusively for rallying discipline. Studying the physics, dynamics and overall performance of a rally car, we focus on try to improve the tittle to a more realistic handling we should feel always behind the steering wheel. We think that they add interesting physical aspects to everyone who want to feel a more realistic handling.

    DEVELOPMENT STATUS
    ------------------------------
    27/09/16: After the 0.2 version release, our idea and main goal is to keep working in compatibilize new car groups.

    01/10/16: We guess that after a Steam client update, the 0.2 version of the RFPE plugin stopped working. You will feel improvements only on damage, FFB and sounds side. Soon, more information.

    15/10/16: A new update which brings again all the mod original features to the tittle. Enjoy!

    20/10/16: A new showcase video (Not download) of the next 0.3 version was added to the thread and also to the video section. Enjoy!

    24/10/16: A new version which include 1980's (RWD) vehicles was released! The core files of the project were updated with more realistic data. Have fun!

    Is it only possible to get a VAC-ban if i play multiplayer or do i have to disable online in the game?
    1. E.Zelaieta
      Author's Response
      Only if you access to the multiplayer option/mode. Anyway, if you feel more comfortable you can switch your steam client to offline mode. Thanks.

    Brilliant job. Dirt Rally live's again. Now please do the same with Dirt 4. But too bad that game doesnt save anymore?
    1. E.Zelaieta
      Author's Response
      Thank you! DiRT 4 file structure and encrypted memory data doesn't allow us to progress deeper at the code (At the moment). About save data, you're right. When modified files are introduced into the tittle directory, the system disables this feature. Thanks again.

    Only thing I dislike about this is the jumping physics. When the car's landing, it's a weird feeling if the car was about to fly up in a moment. I even sometimes get weird damage. Annyoingly weird.
    Besides that, I find it perfect, FFB is much more natural and I can actually feel what's car going to do.

      If you mod the tittle, you will not be able to save your progress anymore. Its simple as that. COnfigure all your input with original installation. After you save, apply the mod. Thank you.

    I've been playing this for a few months now and it's brilliant, the cars are more controllable and much better at communicating what they're doing. Great work and I'm looking forward to your next update whenever that may be. One question, are the group N cars running on some sort of studless tire in the snow? I noticed that they are very very low grip.
    1. E.Zelaieta
      Author's Response
      Thanks for your message! Talking about N4 cars, they are using original tires (Studed). That was one of the physical department we wish fine tune when we where deep into the development of the 0.5 version but sadly, the mod development its actually stoped. Thanks for understanding.

    Such a low rating only because the mod is still crashing Dirt Rally for me. By default Dirt Rally is still too arcadish it has too much grip in most cases which makes it harder to predict car behavior and flow properly through a stage. This mod is fixing that, cars feels more natural. However , IMO it is still slightly overdone, for example on snow or wet gravel. I have 5 stars reserved for this mod when I'll be able to continuously play it without game crashing.

      Thanks for your review! During the development of different versions, we hardly suffered any random CTD (Crash to desktop). It's strange but anyway, thanks for sharing your impresions with all of us!

    Love to mod guys, feels awesome! I have a little problem though because as soon as i install it my save files don't seem to be updating anymore. If i do a few rallies, save and quit the game then go back it reverts back to where it was before i installed the mod. :(

    Car weight feels much better and cars feel a lot better around corners due to lower grip. Hoping for more cars added.

    This is garbage. Should be called Drift Rally. Download only if you're looking for a crazy drift game. It's not realistic in any aspect even though authors claim that they're "studying physics, dynamics and overall performance of a rally car". Trust me, I've been playing sims for years and this is the opposite of realistic.

      Thanks for sharing your point of view. It's respectable but you cant confirm to the rest of the users to trust you because your experience on sim racing. Based on your rules, my personal opinion should be the definitive veredict because I have more than 15 years of experience in sim racing department and more than 10 years on real life motorsports (Which include rallying). In my personal opinion, that's not how it works. Share your point of view with constructive and helpfull feedback and we will be happy to know your opinion and like always try to improve in future. Thanks for understanding.

    What do you mean about VAC ban? This ban only affect in DIrt Rally? Or affect ALL steam games
    1. E.Zelaieta
      Author's Response
      VAC is the anticheat system developed by Valve. It's available and working on selected tittles which integrates but daily, the list is increasing. Thank you.
