Formula DS (fastest, extremest AC car, experimental) 3.6

jet+petrol powered 700.000 horsepower car, supersonic

  1. Piereligio
    Ignore physics laws, reach a max of about 80G in turnings, over 100G in acceleration and over 150G in braking!
    Moved by a petrol+jet engine (+ KERS), the car has a very advanced dynamic aerodynamics (no pun intended) system, to keep the downforce constant at every speed and to stop the car after accidents.
    The car is all wheel drive, you can change the front traction ratio in the setup.
    If it feels too much powerful, you can tweak the turbo max power using the numbers in row of the keyboard.
    The car is stable up to 15000km/h, actually.
    I reccommend you to disable automatic friction, since it doesn't handle well all the car's power.
    To tweak the FFB strength of the car, you can use the - and + keys from number keypad. ;)

    THIS IS JUST FOR EXPERIMENTING FUN, please don't be too polemical only because you hate the idea.

    Useless, but fun.
    Can't even make a lap on any circuit, but it's making me laugh, so it's worth it.

      No, it doesn't. I've just checked from my phone, it just opens. Also, it didn't happen to all the other people. Are you downloading it here?

    11/10 would league race again

    But honestly, it is a pointless effort indeed. And it's not a negative thing. I love the pointlessness in that car. It makes no sense at all and that's why it's great

      I just had fun making it. I'd have spent the same hours on it without sharing it, so...

    We were so obsessed with whether or not we could, we didn't think about whether or not we should.

    It's a good idea although we don't have to take it seriously..When it comes to that speed...the simulator will have massive error comparing to the real data

      I don't think it is useless. I actually watched some videos on youtube of this car, and... there are people who truly have fun with this crazy experiment, and that's cool to see.

    i dont understand all the hate..

    Funny thing to experiment, if you tweak the gears you can get a better feeling. Of course i dont expect a usual driving car. This is a fun experiment so 5 stars for the fun i had :)

    Hello, I actually like the concept of a machine whose potential is so high than the driver is clearly the limiting factor. It is an interesting experiment. However as of now i find the handling not so good. Even at realistic speeds the car react far too sharply on any given input. In addition collisions are unrealistic even at low speed and most of the time will result in a stuck situation with return to pits. My suggestion, if it is possible for you, is to implement a rudimentary drive law control system that filters inputs according to speed. For steering inputs this means that for a given steering wheel angle you have a smaller tyre steering angle at low speed than at high speed. Same principle would apply for brake and accel pedals. Actualy accel pedal is kinda ok but steering and braking are far too sensitive. Also the car moves by itself in the pits.

    To sum up, i think you have a good concept there but you need to make it more manageable if you want people starting using it (or not but that's their problem).

      Sadly it can't be be done by editing the car files

    I have no intention of installing this mod on my copy of AC (especially after reading I need to set my FFB to 5% -- I don;t have the money to spend on a new Wheel), but I wanted to just mention that the author is free to develop whatever it is he likes and those that appreciate the mod can install it and have fun with it too.
    Those like me, that prefer simulation of (race) cars from our own universe (as opposed to some non-newtonian, post-relativistic, quantum-bending alternate reality) , can simply not download it or, like I just did, download it and not install it.
    There is no need to rake the author over the coals for something that ultimately is a voluntary experiment.
    If he installed it on your copy of AC under false pretenses and actually blew up your wheel or broke your wrist, I'd be more sympathetic. But he didn't. He was very open from the beginning that this was an experimental car. I read the description the first day it appeared here and immediately I told myself "not for me".

    And that's pretty much it. I understand being passionate about something, but calling the guy names or questioning his intelligence seems to be a bit over the top. Kind of like the car.

      Thanks for understanding :)
      With 5% FFB should not clip at all, that's why I reccomended that value. The last thing I'd want is to blow up my g27 ahah

    I don't understand why you seem not to understand the criticism you receive by most here about this mod..The reason of all that criticism is this: why exactly would you take the time to create something so beyond silly that one can't even drive to half its potential? Please enlighten me: on what track can You succeed in taking a turn at 40Gs with this and still see the incoming corner, or actually nail ANY turn ins or apexes using its full potential, so that at least you extract some satisfaction from it? And where exactly is the fun in having to tune down your wheel FF setting to 5% SO YOU DON'T DAMAGE IT from the stupid grip you tuned into your mod? This in itself doesn't tell you how stupid it is?

    If this car is a pure exercise of your ability to edit ini files, you've most definitely succeeded. To me it fails in every single other aspect. You should probably try to use your abilities more creatively than to "do stuff no one else did". My rating is for your intention to offer something to the community, not for the questionable outcome. If this is what you do with your spare (limited) time, I have serious doubts about the normality of your brain chemistry.

      I'm just having fun (yeah, I find fun to challenge and break the limits that simulators/racing games give). Since I've done it, when updates create new problems or possibilities, I update. I don't have enough time and sources (of informations) to make a real car in a realistic way, so I don't even try to do that.

      BTW NO, I don't spend all my free time with this, I've many hobbies, one that makes me earn, too... My name is here, you can Google and find everything I do, almost. And.. There are also 3 more mods from me on this website, so you can see how I accually contribute to this community too, in the ways I can do it.
