    Hello everyone!
    Which gearbox behavior do you use? Please post it in this thread like this:
    1. Behavior name
    2. With/Without clutch assistance
    3. With/Without throttle assistance
    4. With/Without gearbox safety
    And a reason in some lines
    Also please say you're using gamepad, steering wheel or keyboard



    Me:
    I'm using realistic gearbox behavior.
    Without clutch assistance
    Without throttle assistance
    Without gearbox safety
    I'm using it because I want to play a realistic game. Also in the arcade behavior change gear between reverse and forward gears has a delay. But with realistic behavior I can change it so faster, so I can do this:

    Edit: I'm using a gamepad (PS4 controller)

    Edit 2: now I don't use clutch assistance

    I really wonder how you guys do to play without clutch assistant with a gamepad, it's impossible to make a smooth start with this setup

    Yeah that's why I use clutch assistant. Also I use clutch assistant to prevent unwanted engine shutting down
    I don't have a steering wheel, if I had a steering wheel with paddles, I would play without clutch assistant

    I use a phone as a wheel.. with analog throttle/brake sliders, and a clutch slider. Gyro sensor as the wheel. So no assists here:p

    It helps to rev the engine before starting to start faster and do burnouts

    But you can use neutral gear instead clutch. Also, I can press LShift (clutch) with clutch assistant. I can even use clutch when using arcade behaviour. So, you don't need to use clutch assistant if you only want to increase the rpm before start

    Realistic,
    No clutch assistant,
    No throttle assistant,
    No gearbox safety assistant,
    Using a Thrustmaster T150 with T3PA pedals.

    For a reason: idk. Probably just having more control over the car, but it could also be my brain thinking it's more fun this way.

    Realistic
    No Clutch Assistant
    No Throttle Assistant
    No Gearbox Safety Assistant

    Using a G920 with H-shifter.

    For a reason: I don't get the assists IRL, and the less software filtering my inputs, (both in-game and IRL) the better.

    2. Without clutch assistance
    3. Without throttle assistance
    4. Without gearbox safety

    I mean, it's BeamNG. Playing it on a wheel with assists is just weird o_O

    I'm using a Thrustmaster T300 with a Logitech G27 shifter and/or a Dual Shock 4 controller, depending if it's a quick play or spending some more time in game

    That is true for any car meant to go fast, but if your vehicle's got very low gearing and good low end torque, it is hardly noticeable. Even more so while in low range.

    I use realistic with clutch assist setting on my ps4 controller, since using clutch is a pain without a wheel and pedals

    That was my favorite thing about switching to a wheel. With a gamepad you're either stalling or doing a burnout, no in between.

    I use realistic with no assists, both for realism and for fun. I have a G920 with a shifter.
