Esotic Speedometer (and Virtual Mirror Overlay) V1.3

speedometer app based on the "Schumi Widget"

  1. Esotic
    Basic Speedometer Demo Video is here:


    Virtual Mirror Overlay Mode Demo is here:


    This app is a speedometer based on the "Schumi Widget", which you can read about here: https://tinyurl.com/zynbeny

    The app will show your current speed, as well as the maximum speed from the last straight away and the minimum speed achieved in the last turn. The app resets tracking max and min speeds when you apply more than 60% brake.

    Settings from the top of the .PY file:

    #Set/Change these value as opposed to making INI changes
    HideIcon = 1 #Set to 1 to hide the AC Icon, 0 to show it
    backgroundOpacity = 1.0 #Background Opacity can be anything from 0.0 to 1.0
    drawBorderVar = 0 #Set to 1 to draw the border, 0 to not draw it
    appWidth = 210 #Width of the app window
    fullSpeed = 0 #Set to 1 to update the screen on every frame, set to 0 to update every tenth of a second
    displayPause = 1000 #hold the top speed for this many milliseconds after getting back on the gas
    useKMH = 1 #set to 1 for KMH, set to 0 for MPH

    To use the new overlay mode you must make a small edit near the top of the .PY file:

    if True: #Change False to True to use the "Virtual Mirror Overlay"

    Please let me know if you have any suggestions to make it better.

    Cheers,

    Dave\Esotic

    Great stuff!
    How about adding an app settings menu (accessible through content manager or within AC itself) to allow for different variables be displayed :
    - gap to front / back driver
    - fuel in l

    Please make the font and color of the numbers look like actual integrated display into the mirror (ever driven in a Taxi in Germany with the taximeter displayed in the actual rear view mirror ?)

    Looks like a great app! I always hated to enter a server with enforced virtual mirror sticking in your face ;-) Now it is MUCH nicer looking and with some cars I might actual start to use the mirror.

    It would be so nice if the actual virtual mirror could be made into a movable app itself, this way it could be made into one of the many used LCD display / rear view camera devices used in modern racing cars.
