Nicecuppatea submitted a new resource:

Voisin C6 'Laboratoire' - Yes that is a propeller.

Another entry from Tours, 1923.



Started this not long after the Bugatti Type 32 so the model shares a few of the same flaws - mostly not enough polygons where they should be, and probably a few too many where they shouldn't - but I think it's fairly close to the originals.



Physics-wise it's still largely guesswork, I've learnt a bit more since the Bugatti but it's hard to know how relevant that is when...

Great fun at Goodwood! It just has enough top gear for there. What happens if you set the shift wait thingy really high? Can you force people to do the old "shift one two shift"? :p

I went all in with the replay lean :roflmao:

Hah, I don't have VR but I still end up leaning around all the corners, funny when you get into a bad slide and almost fall out of your chair trying to recover it :laugh:. Immersion can be bad for your health sometimes :).

I did change the animation timing a little on the gear shift but it'd be interesting to see if it can be set up like that, maybe do a mis-shift if you don't wait long enough, have to do a little investigating.

Check out the Miura, it definitely has some setting(s) that make shifting a tiny bit more tricky.

They seem to do a lot of leaning in these old cars at Goodwood so I thought I'd have a go for the replay :p

This car is quite a different driving experience, flat out more or less at T1 and suuper early on throttle after turning in then the long wait for the revs to build up :D

Charge!

AI always seems to go a bit gaga with more than two parallel grid places. Not sure if that's fixable or not.

I've often wondered how these cars would fare on dirt or gravel roads like the ones they drove on in reality, so I downloaded a rally track from RD and tried it. Works surprisingly well:



It's not too keen on the jumps though - going up is fine but coming back down is a bit bouncy:



The thought has crossed my mind before that a vintage track would really complete the sense of immersion and probably be bloody good fun too. Seems doable at least. My list of Things I Need To Learn How To Do grows ever longer :)

Hey if there's an update coming some time could it be possible to make wheel covers paintable? Now they share texture with the steering wheel.

Sure, just need to give them a separate material, not sure how much it matters these days but I tried to keep the file size as close to Kunos standards as I could and fewer textures helps with that.

There will be an update, just been concentrating on the Sunbeam for the last couple of weeks.

Nicecuppatea updated Voisin C6 'Laboratoire' with a new update entry:

Voisin C6 1.1

- changed gear ratios
- improved AI at race starts
- dialed down overly shiny chrome
- separated texture for the wheel discs
- fixed a few little graphical errors
- plumped up seats for added comfort

It's hard to know what's correct with the gear ratios, I somehow got the impression vintage cars had long first gears but the few actual ratios I've managed to find suggest that's not so, it's not much to go on but I think it's better to lean towards what the facts suggest - could still be...

Thanks! Great Mod! Amazing.
I love the racing cars before World War II. Nice cars M-Benz W 25-W154.
Most of all, I miss the Mercedes-Benz Monza W 196.
I wish you a nice week :)
