aren't able to give the kind of mod support the community would like for DiRT Rally, reveals community manager Lee Williams, mainly because it's all a matter of licensing
Trying to approach modding through any means results in the team hitting "a legal reason why we can’t." What about creating our own tracks? No tool for that exists and they "can’t promise anything."
If we can't mess about with the cars then at the very least Codemasters should put the effort in and let people spice up the track offerings by sharing their own creations.
"Truth is for us to implement it the way people are asking is difficult and sometimes not possible at all. We couldn't allow people to mod in new cars because of licencing. Even liveries on cars (officially supported) causes licensing issues," explained Williams on.
"Custom tracks - we don't have a tool that would enable you guys to make them. There are some things that could be done but it seems that every possible way look at incorporating mod support we hit a legal reason why we can't."
"It's not off the cards yet but I really can't promise anything."
Currently DiRT Rally is available throughfor £25.99.
