The Italian Mini Prix has Arrived!
The Rosa Camuna mini GP track is finally ready for testing (loosely based on a minified Monza). It was a long haul in part due to some awesome tool writing to make this and future tracks easier to build. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do. Certainly not a beginner's track (you can't full throttle all of it; and be careful with the funky grip on the concrete banking). You'll currently find it at track 6 in an 8-track lineup.
This release also brings a big change to a basic mechanic: max speeds. I noticed many players were very happy with the max speed of the fat-tire car setup. Well, that setup is 17% slower than the base setup. Thus, I did some testing that I should have done long ago to see just how slow I could tolerate the max speed and still feel fast and dangerous. To skip the long story of the deep look I took at things, I landed at cutting the base max speed 15% from 200 kph to 170 kph (124 mph to 106 mph). Conversely, I increased the max speed for the big-tire setups. I didn't dig into the gearbox, so the torques should be the same as before. I think this saner pace is a good move for the majority of players and is pretty close to final, if not final.
Now, don't worry, speed freaks. I then added a new wacky wodifier for a higher speed limit for all tire setups. This wod increases the max speed 18% which kicks that 170 kph back up to 200.6 kph (just a smidge faster than the original setup). I currently call the wod "Speed limit for pros."
Summary of changes wrapped up in this release:
- Some small AI tweaks including new behavior in the pit lane.
- Other minor changes such as curbs fixed.
- New track: Rosa Camuna
- New object type: traffic cones
- Max speed redux.
- New Wacky Wodifier: Speed limit for pros
- New Leader Lamifier: Greasier car seat
- Wods listbox now scrollable... no thanks to Unity's crazy UI tools!
- Changed 4-track screenshot layout to a quad instead of a vertical strip.
Linux should see a new build shortly, after I make a few more changes in this current hard push.
