World Racing Series beta14 WIP
« on: July 29, 2018, 05:04:05 PM »

Work is in progress to rewrite the suspensions code and simulate the live axle torque reaction, the axle wrap, and so on.
No pictures or videos to show yet, sorry. There is still a lot to do.

Bison160 dropped a personal message asking for news.
It's probably better to reply publicly in case anyone else is interested.

Work on the new suspensions code is progressing, but has been slowed down recently because some of time spent fixing and improving the netcode.

There still is a lot to do on the car physics. Unfortunately it's neither a quick nor an easy task.

Well, I'd say that is all good news. Keep up the good work!

Work is progressing.
The new suspensions simulation is almost done.
After that, all the cars will have to be updated and tuned to work with the new code.

Also, fixed the bug when loading trainers.

Not sure I've noticed this "trainer" bug. Honestly though I haven't used the sim much lately.

I am a little curious as to what you are using to test/debug the new suspension code. Thanks for the updates. Looking forward to seeing it.

Work on the suspensions simulation is still in progress.
The double wishbone and macpherson code is completed.
There still is work to do for the beam axle simulation.

In the meantime, in light of the recent netcode improvements, it has been decided to release a MX Bikes update.
This will pause WRS development for this week.

Apologies for the wait.

No problem on the wait. I scanned another track while we are "waiting" and still have a ton to do. The most important thing is that it is done right.

Work on WRS resumed.

Added support for timer and standings displays on track.

Still working on physics and updating the cars' data.

Unfortunately the suspensions simulation also requires a rewrite of the differential and brakes code.

It will take a while. This is the biggest WRS physics update since Beta6, possibly the biggest ever  :-\

The plan is to release Beta14 around the end of this month.
