    One way i have fun in this game is to recreate real life vehicles i know of and drive them around. But most of the time the vehicle i find fit in the game dont have matching torque or gear ratios to its real life counter part.

    My idea is that when you use "ctrl+w" there should be options to change torque and gear ratios.

    1- For gear ratios, there should also be a speed indicator like this " 1st gear ratio: 5.67 = max 46km/h" so that i can adjust gear ratios really fast. If i dont know the max speed, i have to keep adjusting gear ratio a lot of times until i find the correct speed, which can take a ton of time when you are doing it for every gear. Im using race adjustable gears where possible but i would like them to work on normal gears too and on automatic gears as well. And some vehicles dont even have race adjustable ones and going into vehicle files to change gear ratios is too time consuming and id rather not do that(did it for some busses and a car before)

    2- For torque its more obvious, i think it could be scalable, like when you adjust max horsepower from 160HP to 120HP, all torque values (or torque curve) could be scaled down by 120/160. Again i scaled it down like this by going into vehicle files but its too time consuming and not practical

    these are available in "tuning" menu if u have installed special parts... second one is a really cool idea, but for now we have workaround for that https://www.blocklayer.com/rpm-gear.aspx but thrid would be pain in ass to set...

    I agree, but it's not realistic to be ale to change gear ratios in a non-race transmission, as it would be impossible in real life without changing parts..

    but the goal is to make the in game car similar to its real life counter-part. For example i would like to make the in game suv close to a CR-V as possible. Dont think it as trying to modify an existing SUV, think it like it was already meant to be that way if that makes sense :)

    That is what mods are for. Don't expect the devs to do all the work for you.

    but im not asking them to make every existing car in universe. Im asking for things to be adjustable so i can do the work myself and adjust them however i want. I dont think there would be a mod for every car someone could want to make. But if you know a mod that does what i ask, im all ears

    Well, my first mod lets you swap transmissions that have customizable gears, but that's not the point. I mean that the devs already gave us the transmissions we have, and it's easy to make a mod transmission based on existing one that has gear ratios changes to whatever you want. A mod like this could be made in a few minutes.

    Could the mod be done in a way you could adjust the gear ratio of any transmission in game? Thats what id want :D

    Not really, I made it the only way that works. The transmission LUA is very "sensitive" and it often throws errors, or even crashes the game, sometimes even it crashed my whole PC. The solution I came up with might be the only one that works.
