    I'm trying to replicate Toyota's Direct-Shift CVT transmission with no success. Currently, this is the jBeam:

    As you can see, it connects the DCT to the engine, then a torque converter to the DCT, then a CVT to the torque converter. All parts are named and tweaked in their respective places, but it causes the car to not even load. Any help is appreciated :)

    Torque converters can only be connected to an engine:
    Code:
      if not device.parent.deviceCategories.engine then
        log("E", "torqueConverter.validate", "Parent device is not an engine device...")
        log("E", "torqueConverter.validate", "Actual parent:")
        log("E", "torqueConverter.validate", powertrain.dumpsDeviceData(device.parent))
        return false
      end
    I think a better way to achieve this would be to adapt the existing CVT code in cvtGearbox.lua to create a new single device which includes the direct drive gear you want. You would probably also need to adapt the shiftLogic-cvtGearbox controller to use the new feature properly.

    Exactly what was said above.

    In addition, you don't really need to create a dedicated powertrain device even, the existing CVT device can be used to replicate the behavior of that new CVT generation.
    You just need a new shift logic to control the thing differently :)
