  • Building the model itself, the CAD/ 3D model is extremely laborious. The difficulty is also dependant upon the kind of CAD software you're building in.

  • I am pretty damn fucking sure that the make bitching about pink color is ferrari. Never ever seen someone being so douchey about colors and graphics on their cars like ferrari. I mean, the guys wouldn't allow you to paint a real ferrari that you actually bought, or they would put you on some kind of 'blacklist" of bad buyers or something LOLOL

  • I still find it funny when some brand won't to make their car easy to get wreck, if i get triple barrel roll when playing online multiplayer i want to see how much wreck on the car after that kind of hit. Sometimes it's fun to see a little bit of reality.

  • I love that Donut Media got included in Dirt 5, I've loved the Dirt games since Dirt 3. But Dirt5 was probably the quickest refund I ever got. It's so boring and just overall bad :(. But all the other games are great!! Dirt rally 2.0 love it!

  • 07:29 that's called remeshing for anyone who cares 09:06 which issue was that? 12:18 that's not surprising at all for me. they tend to make arcade sims, not full on simulators, even if some like DiRT Rally trend moreto sim. 13:38 the programming section was disappointing... made it seem like you just input something and then the output is perfect. didn't go into the process itself. I guess I really just wanna see these people work with them talking over it instead of a description from a layman of how they do it. 15:00 don't use studded tires then? I wanna see more racing gamedev documentary-like videos like this.

  • I am one of those who likes to drive "boring" regular cars in games. This way I can test out different cars I am interested in within my IRL budget. It gives you a rough feel of which you like the most :) And then modify them in the game to get inspiration for your upcoming project car.

  • "Nobody want to drive boring cars." *Me looking at Gran Turismo 4* Nah.. Those "boring" cars like a Honda Fit/Jazz, Toyota Yaris, Suzuki Wagon R, and many many other regular road cars actually can be more interesting to drive than the many supercars. It feels more grassroots and in a way, very relatable since these are he cars that we probably actually drive in real life. Plus, having these regular road cars in a videogame is also a way to appreciate the automotive history as a whole since it's not just filled by supercars.

  • its great how they talked about putting in the real world stats.. cause even i've experienced that with a car builder game 'automation' where i made a pretty spot on replica of a 240z , going off of photos of a particular green 240 i found on google and the engine specs i put in down to a T and it was surprisingly accurate or "accurate to what i would think / believe the real car to accelerate and handle like" be that as it may its still a base game so it has its own handling flaws but it was surprisingly accurate as i did the gear ratios as well .. and a few other bits basically trying to get as close to the real accurate car... i was shocked by how good the results were and this kind of shines a light on as to why... that if the game engine is capable of real accuracy that if you give it the correct information and parameters that it will re create or simulate real life...

  • Thank you for the cabin comment. "its the only way I can get in the zone" .. True though! More racing games need the cabin view camera!! Its the best way. Definitely harder than "3rd person" sky view due to restrictions of how far and wide you can see. But.. "Its the only way I can get in the zone!"

  • about the "no pink paint" - Im confused if its about Ferrari - Yes the company is a bitch to deal with when it comes to modifications BUT, I remember Test Drive 2 Unlimited had a lot of Ferraris and you could change the paint if Im not wrong - to any you want. So if its about Ferrari, it must be a recent decision.
