TemplarGFX submitted a new resource:

Hardcore Damage Model for Dirt Rally - Alpha version of a realistic Damage Model

Think your the master of the rough stuff? Want to really test your mettle?

This is the very first revision of a mod I've been working on to make the damage in the game realistic (something I've wanted since release!)

Changes :
Significantly more damage to vehicle from collisions
Significantly more damage to vehicle components from collisions
Significantly more Handling impact from Damaged Components
No more Crash Cam on Replay

Visual Damage is increased due to the greater amount of...

TemplarGFX updated Hardcore Damage Model for Dirt Rally with a new update entry:

Balancing + Original files included

Its important to note that while this mod is installed you can't play online (Race Net, or Daily Events) Just restore the original to return to online play. Works fine in Campaign and Custom modes for single-player.


Spent quite a bit of time testing this out and balancing the damage to make it feel right. Major difference is stronger driveshaft and suspension springs. Engine damage is simulated much better (The co-pilot started warning me about the engine, a few minutes later it...

With v2, I managed to retire due to an engine failure on the first try. Well done, sir!

Maybe codemasters have meant to tweak the damage model at a later date, but I'm sure a mod like this puts pressure on them anyway, just in case they are happy with it as it is.

First this is the one I'm referring to
http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/hardcore-damage-model-for-dirt-rally.6657/

Can Some help me with what is the max and minimal values are? Is it 0.000001 an 100?
I've never ever modded a game before my self :(

They are some brief explanations when you open the 'raceload' file in notepad but its still not enough

I like the mod above but I don't want the engine wear it has etc I just want the terminal damage increased

Please explain as easily as possible as like I've said I have never modded any game before

The file is a binary file, and so you cannot use such a simple program like notepad, as when you save it with notepad, the hidden characters are lost (this is why the game crashes)
Download the free notepad++, while it is still a text editor, it actually opens all files in binary mode, and edits them in such.

The key with editing binary files with Notepad++ is that you cannot ADD or REMOVE any characters from a line of text. You have to replace them. For example
1.75000000
to
175.000000
OK
1.75000000
to
175.00000000
or
175.0
NOT OK

This is fine for numbers like in the example with alot of 0's (thankfully raceload uses numbers like these) it gets tricky when they are simple numbers like 10 or 1.1!

Unfortunately it is not my mod that is causing this AFAIK. The cars still get super dirty for me

OK., Cool.Can you create a damage mod that is like super real. Was watching some Rally Videos and Wrc today and was like "Hey, this doesn't happen in Dirt Rally". In real life your wheels become damaged easily and other parts of the car but in Dirt Rally its just like let me take a couple more hits before getting noticeable damage.

Thanks in Advance
Josh:thumbsup:
