VEHICLE CONTROL ADDON V1.2
This script varies the steering speed depending on the speed you are driving, and it rotates the camera to match the steering angle and direction. Shift-Left limits throttle, cruise control and maximum rounds per minute to 75%. With Shift-right and the cursor keys you can peek in the corresponding direction. If you press Ctrl left together with W then the driving direction snaps to fixed directions. Additionally, there is a simple gear box. It was never planned to make a super realistic gearbox. The following transmisions are available:
off: the standard gearbox without customization
IVT: Still the standard gearbox but with little adjustments to the allowed RPM range. More to come…
4X4: An old fashioned transmissoin with 4 gears in 4 groups and shuttle control. Shifting gears takes time and you might lose momentum.
4PS: The same transmissoin as above but with power shift for the gears
2X6: Two groups with 6 gears. This transmission is useful for G27/G29 gear shifters. There is a low and a high range. The 6 gears in each range do not overlap with the 6 gears in the other range
FPS: Full Power Shift: The transmission has 12 gears and shifts without interuption.
6PS: 6 gears with power shift: This transmission has 6 gears. Each gear can be reduced by about 80%
Shift-Left limits throttle, cruise control and maximum rounds per minute to 75%. With Shift-right and the cursor keys you can peek in the corresponding direction.
If you press Ctrl left together with W then the driving direction snaps to fixed directions.
