    That's pretty impressive that any part of it was able to work at all, honestly... version 1.2 is pretty ancient, lol. The game's code has changed significantly since then.

    The good news, though, is that I'm almost done with the next release (which is going to be a pretty massive update) and it should make it quite a bit easier to add the hybrid system to other vehicles. The major release after this coming one should make it even easier, but it's going to take even more work. I have a lot of restructuring planned for that one.

    Unfortunately, your current hybrid system does not fit the topology that I'm trying to replicate. The premise of the 200BX hybrid was that it was a garden-variety CVT with an electric assist motor integrated into the torque converter. The tiny 3-cylinder engine took 16 seconds to hit 60, but with the assist motor is was closer to 11 seconds. Version 1.2 was the last version of the system that could replicate this arrangement.

    Ah, in that case, you'd need to wait until the major release after this upcoming one. I won't say much, but the general idea is that things are becoming much more modular to open the doors for extension/customization of different parts of the hybrid system without needing to rewrite huge amounts of it :)

    In Europe especially, there is this concept of "P levels" in hybrid drives where "P" is for "position."
    https://x-engineer.org/automotive-e...d-hybrid-electric-vehicle-mhev-architectures/ This article offers a TON of information on hybrid drives and their configurations, and it is a must-read for anyone looking to understand or simulate different hybrid configurations.
    The 200BX Hybrid configuration would be considered P1 since the motor is integrated into the torque-converter. The ETK hybrid would be either P3 power-split or P3 power-split+P4 since the electric motors are integral to the transmission. I would think that if Cherrier made a Vivace hybrid it would be P0, an electric assist motor replacing the alternator, possibly with a P4 rear drive unit as well like the ETKs.
    And that's just the beginning. If you need more information on hybrid drives (or other fuel-saving features) for your mods, feel free to contact me. I'd love to be a part of helping create these mods, since I know a lot about hybrids and fuel-efficient vehicle technology.

    Hi, I see you are new to the forums, asking for the release of something is frowned upon since it pressures the modders
    it'll be released when its done:)
