Alright, you can increase the second to last argument "turn speed" in the physics_ini_ext script

Great, Thanks

By the way thank you for posting the Unregistered version, I saw physics like these in a Gta clone called GTA Columbia which was made with Game Maker Pro. I looked at the cars in the editable and I could not understand the code at all. The code in this engine is much better and easier to understand.

Ehh, I just had a look at your "latest" version - and I don't see much difference.

Cop AI is still in there - which is nice, and my favorite thing of this car physics engine is it's collision/rotation function. Apart from that, it's still pretty basic.

So when will you implement gear changing? I find it rather ironic how you name your physics engine "Gearshift" straight of the bat, and have no basic gear system.

Also: I suggest you add slide to the car if you hammer the brake-pedal too hard - this gives you the illusion that the car has mass and wants to continue on the direction it was going on previously. :)

There is no new version, and I'm no longer developing this.

Why not? This engine got me interested - I like the collision physics and such, so why stop?

Although the engine itself could probably be improved I think adding some things that may be superfluous to some people wanting to use the engine is a bad idea. I'm also rather busy at the moment which doesn't really help.

This engine could really do with some improvement, although the turning is pretty nice; and will really help with a project I'm working on at the moment - Thanks!

i like how people say it could be improved, but never volunteer to do it, it's always gimme gimme gimme! lol.
really, the man(? guessing you are) said repeatedly that it is not supposed to be realistic simulation, so stop *****ing people... frankly i like it, it's fine the way it is, and any thing it could use i'll add myself to soot my needs.
and that's what you should do folks, thank the man(?) for his hard work, and make the changes your selves...
and please for the love of god, read all the posts before you complain... you just might learn something if your not busy moaning...

Great job chaz, the second i started playing with it, it gave a bunch of game ideas...

P.S. by the way chaz, Gore one is awesome... hope you get the chance to finish the second one.

Thanks for the reply. I won't be updating any of my creations any further, but I'm glad people are still finding good uses for them. I'm only visiting the forums to check up on my threads and pm's, but I suppose over time I'll start to stop coming here.

Yeah, I'm leaving everything. Sorry, but at least I've released it and you can learn/borrow from it or carry it on or whatever.

Sorry for the worlds biggest bump, but I was wondering whether people would be interested in a brand new up to date version of this engine?

I for one would definitely be interested, trying to work on a racing game myself now & having difficulty getting the right "feel" to everything.

I'd be interested in seeing an update for this, too. I have a 'car' game on the back burner, waiting for development.

There is an issue with the smoke effect.

If you switch your map to using tiles, and paint a couple of tiles, the skid smoke then draws on top of the car (rather than below as it should) and no amount of tinkering with layers will fix this. I can only presume it is a bug with the 'effect_create_below' function and tiles.

This is in GM Studio.
