This is why Deep Dives are great, people giving lots of analysis on 2 seconds of footage.So some things I’ve noticed rewatching the deep dive. Hints at a deeper career mode than DR2 and perhaps something along the lines of the F1 games, in the shot where they’re recording dialogue there’s script on the screen with responses that are “disappointed or pleased”, talking about taking part in possibly a charity event? And not getting the result wanted. The pleased script mentions someone call Max.
Some pre and post race commentary was easier to spot from Molly Pettit, discussing s possible penalty for leaving service late, perhaps there’ll be more dynamic things going on with other drivers.
Assists menu confirms we’ll have control of the car after the line still by the presence of the ‘time control braking’ assist, plus manual starts with ‘start line assist’. Throttle limiter assist to reduce max acceleration. It also confirms the manual clutch override assist is returning from DR2 which was great for kicking cars back ends out.
Preferences menu confirms adjustable FOV for internal and external cameras and adjustable camera shake. It mentions a rally passport which must be some sort of visual thing with perhaps your license details or something.
There’s the usual co-driver timing options and the new call types with normal and simplified options.
The call type option also has a note mentioning that the setting does not affect Regularity Rally calls. Which implies there may be events that are based around regularity rally or ‘Time, Speed, Distance’ rallies (completed stages in a specific time/at a particular average speed).
