I've never known the engine sounds in slow-mo replays, even on TV motor sports slow-mo replays.....

Why on earth would you want or need the engine sounds in slow-mo replays? It would sound terrible. Lol! ;D

Unreal Engine 5 is due for a preview release in early 2021, with official release late 2021.  ;)

In my opinion, this is the best layout ever of the Assen TT Circuit.... Probably the best motorcycle road racing circuit in the world there has ever been.  ;D  8)

Yes, at the time there were safety issues especially the trees lining the track side, but surely they could've just took those trees away instead of totally bastardising the whole track itself. What they did to the Classic Assen TT Circuit layout was a massive crime in my book. Turned it into just a very average circuit.... Such a huge shame.  >:(  :'(  :'(

But whatever, what's happened has happened and it ain't going to change, but I would really like to see this layout and length rebuilt in a new venue somewhere.... It would be an absolute beauty!!  ;D

@Piboso: Could you elaborate further on your intentions to implement "Mod Registration" and exactly how that would work and effect modding for your projects in future? Thank you.

Why?

+1 Good question Mystic.  ;)

(No premix)

Means no smell, no smoke, just an annoying noise as it's got all the exhaust injection system and emissions s***e.

Sure a new 2T would be nice but having no smoke or smell sort of removes most of what's good about 2T from an enthusasts perspective?

It does for me anyway.

Curious on thoughts?

The smell and smoke from the old 2T's, not that the smoke was anything major once the engine was up to temp anyway, certainly wasn't the main reason for liking a 2T in my book. It was the power-band and a 2T's characteristics that make the 2T powered bikes such an amazing and exciting machine to ride..... Then of course there is the incredible sound that goes with them too.  ;D  8)

Interesting videos Mystic. Thanks for the posts.  ;)  8)

PS: I would miss that lovely smell of Castrol 'R' though...... They should put a little Castrol R oil tank drip-drip feed into the hot exhaust to compensate! Hehe!! ;D  ;D

Cheers,

Thanks for that David.... Sounds like a very interesting article, I'll give it a read later mate. Thanks! ;)  8)

Yeah... Interesting read mate, but I do hope that isn't the future of the 2T bike engines. :(

Just bring back the good old monster GP500 engines.... SPECTACULAR!! ;D ;D

PS: With the old tyres too to make it even more exciting to watch. Lol! ;)  8)

Quote from: Hawk on June 29, 2020, 09:53:04 PMIs it really worth being concerned about the LOD's until Piboso has a z-sort-culling routine implemented into his GE?
:o  ???  :o

I take it from your reaction, that you didn't realise?

Quote from: h106frp on June 18, 2020, 10:16:08 PMI have been going through the usual re-tuning of a bike using Victoria and I have developed a bit of a new theory on what occurs at the bottom of Lukey Height/MG. After noticing the problem only ever occurs when entering the turn with high lean (you can always blast through it any old how when you pick it up after a drop) I wondered about chassis flex and damping, theory being that as the bike has a high lean angle we lose damping and travel from the suspension units and become dependant on the mechanical flex and damping - much in line witrh Vinis comments about the bikes being overly 'stiff' but maybe with a slightly different perspective.

With the newer inertia calcs it appears we have a bit more range to play with in the damping and chassis stiffness ranges and it does improve the situation very noticeably if you can add a bit of flex and damping to the chassis. It might be worth you trying and comparing it to what you obtain from tyre adjustments.

If you remember the problems bikes used to have on Silverstone entering that right hand rising bend as you exit from under the bridge, the front end always used to wash-out? Well that issue was fixed with correct chassis-flex settings if you remember mate? ;)

Quote from: Vini on June 19, 2020, 01:47:30 PMChassis flex has always influenced bike handling in GPB very positively. Sadly, a lot of mods are way too stiff.


Quote from: HornetMaX on June 19, 2020, 11:56:49 AMSide note: I think Victoria is a good test track. It has a bit of everything. Not sure why Vini crusades against it :)
Because I have ridden plenty of bikes there that seemed to be good but then revealed themselves to be absolute shite on more technical tracks. Victoria lacks slow corners, bumps, quick direction changes and hard braking. You only have all those long corners where you basically have enough time to get any bike to turn nicely.
The track is simply not bike dependent at all, that's partially why real MotoGP races are always so exciting there.

+1 Vini

Totally agree with your deductions about testing and track testing for bikeMOD devs, at least to get the bike handling well initially. ;)

@Mystic: I think Manu is trying to tell you that when tuning the tyres, you can't just alter a couple of values without those alterations affecting other factors in the tyre file that will need adjusting too to compensate? Correct me if I'm wrong Manu.  ;)
