Realistic gear ratios and brake force for MotoGP class 0.95

gear ratios brake force motogp

    This is my first mod (well, tbh it's the 2nd one, the 1st was a sound mod for RBR, Sainz/Moya audio pace notes, which I did many many years ago, very funny indeed ;) )

    I'm always looking for realistic mods and since I started playing the MotoGP game series I noticed that there wasn't any of them fixing the original gear ratios. This mod http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/real-challenge-physics-mod.15887/ from Dyego JhOu was very close to what I was looking for, but it was lacking the gear ratios fix, so I decided to make a new one from scratch.

    The Mod:

    Basically I changed 2 parameters based on real telemetry (only MotoGP class):

    - Gear ratios: longer 1st gear and adjusted all the others. Now you can make use of 1st gear like riders do in real life (i.e. Circuit of the Americas turns 12, 13, 14, 15 http://www.motogp.com/en/videos/2017/03/09/onboard-lap-circuit-of-the-americas/220464 this is imposible to reproduce with the original game, now it's a joy).

    - Brake force: reduced, ajusted to match real braking reference points.

    Now lap times are more realistic, overall gameplay has improved, feels more natural and fluid. The bikes feel easier to ride but at the same time it's very difficult to beat the real track records. I like it. (tested only in PRO physics and MANUAL TRANSMISSION, no helps, I play with keyboard)

    The only flaw is that it's near impossible to crash while applying full brakes at the maximum lean angle :( I need to take a look at that.

    Feedback and constructive criticism is always welcome.

    Installation instructions:
    1. Backup the original data.mix file (.../motogp 17/data.mix)
    2. Extract "data.mix" from .rar file
    3. Replace original data.mix with it

    This mod only works in offline modes! Changes at data.mix invalidate the game for online gameplays.
