I believe this thread should be in here, but if you think there is a more suitable place, please let me know. Basically its not a game for everyone to join in with, more of a 'story' as such, based on what im doing with DIRT Rally. If anyone frequents the Operation Sports forums they may have read the dynasty section, where players recap their career etc from whatever game they are playing. Well this is based on that premise.
With that out of the way, let me try to cover off some background:
- Im using DIRT Rally (PC) and the Group B Cars within that game. Now I know I am unable to run a full replica Championship, so ive setup my own fictional Group B series which I can (and probably will) evolve as I get more into it and understand more.
- I am not a racing game expert at all. I am not even an expert on the sport itself, although having watched every last piece of Group B footage/documentaries I can find on Youtube, I understand alot more about the history and majesty of this era of rallying.
- Yes I use a pad atm, right now I can have fun with the game. Its not perfect, im not at the game either. But until I get a wheel setup (Christmas fingers crossed!) then this is how I will be playing the game.
Ill also add in here the Championship setup:
- I will use each of the 6 rally courses in the game once, each holding a rally of 3 stages (created initially via random) and all cars will compete on the same track and conditions.
- I am using the custom and as far as I can tell correct liveries via mods for each of the Group B cars. The Lancia S4 will have 2 entrants and that will total 8 drivers for the initial season.
- I will race for every car, using a serpentine rule for subsequent rallies so that the car going 8th in the preceding event, will go first in the next (to help with me learning the tracks and thus the same car not benefiting from that)
Feel free to prod me with questions if there are any, I am actually 3 rallies into the season as ive just got carried away with it. So ive plenty to update and hopefully share with you all.
