We got a realistic automatic transmission implemented today Manually shift through P R N D 2 1 and the car behaves just like a real one, creeping forward in D if you don't hold the brakes.

In other news, damn you Sam for placing a corner after a blind crest leading into a bridge This happened:

He's making great progress on the East Coast map It's a blast to drive; night and day difference compared to Dry Rock Island. The roads are smooth, fast, and tons of fun - it almost feels like a completely different game. I've still barely explored less than half of it (and he's not done adding roads )

You guys are in for a real treat. The map is gorgeous and there's so much of it you haven't seen yet.

I've also spent some time reconfiguring the Covet and its various parts. The new Covet Sport is now a realistic factory option. About 10 more horsepower than the stock Covet, stiffer suspension, new 16 inch wheels (you've probably seen them hiding in the .DAE), and nice sticky tires

The old "Sport" is now called the Race, since it has a roll cage, and there's no way that'd be a factory option, nor would a turbo that adds 80 horsepower. Also it's only fitting that the "Race" update come with a "Race" version

Still making good progress on the other planned features too Squashing bugs and whatnot. Development moves forward.

    Extremely excited for this new map and the loads and loads of new features coming with this update! And dang sounds like my GTi is gonna get smoked by the race variant. Oh well lol. What changes to the jbeam files for the engines were made for the automatic transmissions? I made the CVT and I was hoping a lot of things won't need to be changed to support the new system. Anyways wonderful work everyone!

    Awesome I'm so happy and excited, but I'm kinda worried about this update. Will this FRY my computer? I know you said the physics are 25% faster but does that mean my Computer will fry?

    Anyway thanks SO much!

    You're a dumbass. Or really bad at making jokes.


    --------

    I can't express how impressed I am with you guys, in a matter of 6 months you've almost doubled the amount of content. You guys have improved the game so significantly in such a short amount of time with such a limited amount of resources. (people!) Keep it up! You're making a lot of people very happy. Really hope when we get to beta that you guys get some good sales so you can take a much deserved vacation haha
