    Would this be something that can be properly simulated with this physics engine of Kunos?

  3. Hoping for this too. Dirt track racing!
  4. I would love it! Subaru or gravel, and then testing Pagani Huaira on the same track :D

    No I do not want to. RBR was great for the time being but its now 10 years old. Looks dated and you can hardly call it an integrated game anymore but more a completely hacked software.

    I am looking for a one stop solution in AC where I would like to get both my circuit and offroad racing kicks.

    Got too many outdated racing games on my shelves already :) Time for next gen stuffies.

    @Stelios Fevgatos thanks I did not know that.

    It's not the looks that are important Bram! It's the inside! :whistling:

    But it would be awesome, not as a rally game. I do think it would need too much work to get some actual good rallying into the game, that they are better of releasing a stand-alone.
    However, a working gravel physic, with working tires etc. would be a fantastic, magnificent, awesome stepping stone into the world of rallycross (talking rallycross, not x-gamecross)!
    I still have a dream of a "Pre- Gr.B era to Rallycross Specials" simracing mod/game! :)

  7. I really hope that they put their effort into sthing else
  8. If you have missed, here is a quote from my conversation with Simone long time ago:

    in other words, AC is a tarmac simulator. You can try making gravel tracks, but will probably not be more than what you can currently do in rFactor.

    On the other hand, he pointed out several times that what happens after 1.0 depends what community requests and what's reasonably possible to do/upgrade.

    On the other hand there is an independant rally simulator "gRally" in the works that is supposed to be the successor of RBR, which I have hopes in to cover this hole.

    Like I said, as long as there is something that can replicate rallycross. I'm willing to pay 10x for the game!
