Scene for the movie GREASE
Quote(car engines start)

Hey.

The rules are, there ain't no rules.

To the fourth bridge and back.

First one back wins.


New race..
Unfortunately, I have not much time to update everything. But below a new car pack.
I'll update the site in detail as soon as possible, but the race can start in time.

Changing all files creates a near copy, but there are many bit differences, and it does not run,.

expected result :)
Yes and no.
After fixing a typo I did it again and although it still doesn't work, i did get a clear error message.
I forgot to write it down but it was something along the line of that it failed to read the contents of sdmain. Vsh..
So maybe..

Te correct version is already in the post above, just didn't go into details because I had no time for it at that moment.

Custom Cars with Stressed / Re: Grip modifiers. Tire types
September 29, 2022, 08:29:04 AM
Thanks for the clarification. I don't know half of the terms you used but yes. That's kind of it.
QuoteThe proportion between them is called "static friction coefficient"
That was wat i was looking for.

In stunts it's faked a bit i think because weight is a factor in acceleration. But i do not think that it is used for grip, just as downforce, it is not a variable so grip does not increase with speed.

These are the things you do have to consider, nobody wants an other car that handles like the Countach.  8)

Custom Cars with Stressed / Re: Grip modifiers. Tire types

The changes in the above test were not extremely big. I tried to keep it balanced and that seems to have worked.
I've been thinking a bit more about how to approach this topic. Why grip is done this way, and I think that I get it.

The base grip is not tire related. It is the it is the result of effects not otherwise specified by the game like downforce. The grip modifiers are how effective the grip is transferred to the road.

So a rally version car with additional spoilers can have a higher base grip but because of the open tire structure a lower effectiveness on normal road.
This could cancel each other out so that the rally version is just as fast as its normal road counter part.
It's just optimized for dirt road which modifier can be standard or better.

It makes quite a complex mechanism. It is mostly about what feels right.
But maybe future creators can use this as inspiration.

I don't see the point in this. Obviously F1 cars would beat any other car were they not limited to usefullness in a race track
i don't think that F1 cars would do well in most places outside of the racetrack. Just speedbumps alone would be a menace.
I meant to say they are designed for a very specific purpose, so this kind of comparisons are stupid. Can we really say Rally cars are slower than F1 cars when each is intendee to work in very different situations?
You are absolutely right about that. We were commenting with the same idea in mind. Even stunts has the mechanism for it. Like the LM002 has an much higher grip on ice than any other car and can beat the Countach on an challenging ice track.

Quote from: Duplode on September 25, 2022, 11:08:49 PMYes, the Diablo is a fun car to drive.
The Dashboard could use a color fix though.

I guess one of the versions has the same dashboard with the color fixed but the performance is also different. And there is also a version with test drive 3 dashboard.
You are probably right. I'll try to look into it. Maybe there's a good reason to keep them all. But maybe one is good enough. For the general collection

I'm happy you made it (KyLiE too)

And the stealth has a wrong gear up value for automatic transmission.

But besides that. Good driving

Indeed and the Dashboard looks amazing too

Quote from: llm on September 09, 2022, 11:18:02 AMdid it work to change the segment alignment to para?

Changing all files creates a near copy, but there are many bit differences, and it does not run,.

A screenshot of a visual check included.
There is also an offset further in the file.

But i now have all obj files. So i can try again, one segment at a time.

You make it sound simple but it's not so trivial. We can edit the source code and maybe this opens up a way to make an multi-player version.

It is very cleverly done, i didn't think it would be possible without heavy rewriting of the code..
