    Hello RD People
    I've been working on the Mechanical effects which forces the player's car into problems
    We don't have engine heating so does the Mechanical Failures like gearbox, suspension, brake ,radiator at all as a factor in the Game.
    I was working on the aspects one by one and at present i was working on Engine effects
    We can have rise of engine Temp as the session progresses and by the end of race the engine will be at high Temps.
    Gearbox also wears out and if you are revving the gearbox much then you will have Minor problems.
    KERS will be either fixed with in a Lap or two or may be out for More than Half of Race.

    Updates for V2.2: Accelerated Gearbox and Engine wear a bit. Also Radiator, Brake Problems may come into play once they hit their damage levels.
    Updates for V3.0: The High Gear box Damage was Decreased a bit so that Players can see the Chequred flag with out Problems. But if you don't take care then You will have Minor problems
    Updates for V3.1: Engine Problems was Decreased and also, KERS failure chances was decreased.
    Updates in Beta V3.1 : Every Problem was decreased but the Chances of Having Major Problem is Now maximized. It was a beta to collect the data and as per the results. I will release the V 3.2

    Actually have you tested it in 3, or 5 tracks not just in 1?And if it's working it's really effective?I mean if i let the rev meter go to high for long time and upshift like that it will effect the gearbox isn't it?

    I've tested in the Tracks like Monza , Spa, Singapore, Suzuka , Australia, China and yes it will effect the gear box but not too much.
    I was working on the Effect you asked Very closely but i need to manage the AI for that too. SO when i have the balance i will add that one to the Mod.

    I'd love to give it a crack right now. But unfortunately it's too hot here in Perth (40 degrees today) to do any racing :(
    I usually wear socks because I like a bit of slippage on the pedals, but since its too hot to wear socks, I can't race. Plus my computer doesn't like heat. Lol
    I'll test it in the next few days when it cools down to a mere 30-35 degrees lol.

    A Little update:
    Working on the Gearbox damage and so far it was giving the results i wanted. Only balancing the AI was required.

    Tested it in 3 tracks for 20 laps and it gave a positive result.The gearbox's temperature was rising and kers was failing for 10 lap(with Lotus).So it's quite good mod!Keep up just needs the AI too.It's a very good mod:)
