So I watched it again and I had a few ideas. I think it would look a little more suspenseful (and more fun, albeit harder) if the engine failure warning came after the animated dyno run. Also it would be really cool if you guys could get the dyno graph to grow as the animation happens.
But these are just little thoughts. Either way what you guys got is looking really good.
EDIT: ok I read kubboz response on youtube to the growing graph. I still think it would be a cool feature and probably could just add a function to skip to the complete graph when you click the go button again.
I like the idea of seeing it grow but then being able to skip it, depends on how hard it is for Zeussy to impliment, but I agree that the suspense of not knowing how could could be cool, as long as you have the option to skip it if in a hurry. (which could also skip the animation and sounds, incase you were tired of listening to the same damned engine run up 20 times
Really awesome video! So pumped for this, I can't wait for a demo!
Is it possible to have the graph "grow" as the engine moves up its RPM band, but have it all instantaneously appear if the "Start" button is pressed a second time?
Even if this was not possible, maybe a vertical line on the power/torque graph that moves across the RPM range with the engine?
A couple of questions / points. Tell me to shut my mouth or buzz off if I'm being too critical, or you know about it already, but i'm just trying to help
- Why are service intervals costed per 100kms? Why not per 1,000 or 10,000kms?
- When you click on "Top End", it is showing info about the muffler. I assume that's because it was the last thing modified? I would suggest that it changes to a bit of a high-level blurb about the Top End itself instead.
- Why are there 2 separate text boxes with information?
- I understand if you're not up to the point in the project where you are being critical of spelling & grammar, but I'll volunteer if you need someone (i'm actually a weirdo that enjoys proofreading)
- On a similar note to above, I assume you know that this information has to be 100% spot on, as this sort of game is likely to bring all the anoraks out of the woods!
- If you have an overly large exhaust on a econo-box (or a similarly 'unbalanced' change) will the engine designer give that engine config less power/torque than a correctly sized exhaust?
- With the 'race' exhaust and individual throttles, the material cost ends up being cheaper and has better economy? Is that supposed to happen?
