The IL2 of rally sims

Did you ever get airborne? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Can you play that with a joystick or is it too difficult?

Yes you can but have never done it myself.
Over Blackhole motorsports (http://www.bhmotorsports.com/board/viewforum.php?f=108) they have the answers how you do it.

That music is the best ,isn´t it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I don't like car games because they don't feel at all like driving. It's like roads are too narrow and your car too wide, all cars seem to have rear engine in a turn, your manual transmision is unintuitive at all and unforgiving, and the steer is just two turns short and waaaay too sensitive, so you are bumping and crashing all the time.

Driving in real life is much easier than doing it in a sim, and much more enjoyable. If I'm driving, my main concern should be doing it well and passing the other guys, not just trying to stay in the road even at 30 mph.

Hmmm...Very true. i wonder how much of this aplies for a flight simulator as well.

Well believe it or not, when you are stuck in a queue to depart as much as one would like to let rip into the EasyJet 737 in front of you with all barrels, it's not allowed, so the game is more enjoyable http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

i love RBR & play it lots , but it penalises you at higher speed much worse than what happens on gravel roads for real

& its not ordinary cars , they are the best of the best works 4wd's

heres hoping "DIRT" goes towards RBR's end of the spectrum a little

It's interesting to me that, in the UK, the development of Rallying post-war had a lot to do with returning RAF crews who had that, typical for the ex-fighting man, sense of boredom and struggle to fit back into a peacetime society.

Back then, when cars were dangerous and not terribly reliable, rallying was on open public at night and relied heavily on navigational skill and teamwork. Even the traditional post-rally fry up at dawn has echos of the RAF bomber crews 'bacon and eggs' after being up all night. Still resonates today.

Sometime in the sixites the continental closed road 'stage' rallying melded with the British style, and the navigational content and feat of endurance futher eroded through to the present day, when it's now little more than racing on gravel. The last WCR to be a 'proper' road rally was the Safari, and that wasn't so long ago.

In the eighties and early nineties you could still see the effect of this - at that time a disproprtionate number of the best co-drivers were British - usually Welsh. (Although I have to admit, Luis Moya was a personal hero, top man. And Carlos was one of the best.) That was because they had cut their teeth in the lanes, as had some of the drivers. When you've read a road off the map, and took big risks on that reading, pace notes are a piece of p1ss.

So when you compare this sim with rallying sims, it has more in common than you think. One of my mates used to use a 'poti' that was an original map-reading light from a Lanc. Inherited it from his grand-father.

And of course the problems are the same - however good your controllers are, you can't yet replace the 'seat of the pants'; and the penalties for getting it wrong are a lighter in sim. Obviously the pentalites for getting it wrong in a Rally car are usually lighter then getting it wrong in a fighter, but the point remains.

I haven't got any driving sims (played a little Colin Mcrae for the PS1). I'm afraid I'd get to into it, and I barely have time for this sim. But sometimes I think they make them too hard because of that lack of penalty.
