Not to spoil the fun, but I think that currently in GPB there's no difference (except the mass) between steel and carbon discs. They will just brake and behave in the same manner.

It's the mystery of the brakes thermal simulation: data seems to be in the .cfg (even if surprisingly identical between steel and carbon), something that looks like a disc temperature is shown in the physics debug mode, but we have no confirmation (or infirmation) about the fact brakes thermal dynamics is simulated or not.

I'm sure I can feel the difference between carbon and steel brake discs on certain tracks, though this of course maybe just a placebo effects of my old mind. Lol

But isn't it correct that using carbon discs on a circuit were you cannot keep the brake disc temps in their efficient working range would mean that you need to change them to steel discs to get the best out of your brakes on that particular circuit?

yes, carbon brakes are not much cop in the wet as they wont reach and stay at there op temp.

Fun spoilt but in an interesting way, humbug. ;D

Nicked-IT racing Team received their new bike and kit today for the 125 Championship round tomorrow.

The new enhanced Knee sliders were great, the ear-plugs not so good for the wind noise.

And those damn 2 stroke pistons.....

Yep welcome to a day inside my imagination.  ::)

Slider for engine volume please @PiBoSo! :)

Very nice work Nick!  ;) 8)

I also champion the implementation of an engine noise sound slider in GPB, and one for ambient engine noise sound slider too(for other riders bike engine noise). It just makes so much sense to have one in my opinion so each rider can tune the volume of the engine sound to their preference.
But as I think you have clearly demonstrated here, that too much engine volume drowns out the sfx of the other sounds - Bike-Modders please take note: Less engine sound volume is better overall at this stage of development until the sound system is fully developed.   ;)

Great video Nick! Nice one mate!  ;D 8)

Thanks Hawk I appreciate your comments very much.

As I said in the other thread this bike had a whopping 66% reduction in 'on power' engine volume - which I did to exaggerate the effects really -  but its not far off what would be ideal. In fact the 'off power' sounds had a reduction of a super whopping 75% reduction in volume!! (I figured most of the knee sliding would happen at off power/low power moments).

Unpack the effects pkz and fiddle about with the particles files  ;D
Back up everything first!

Excellent work mate :D

How did you lower the engine volume ??

Max taught me how with his MaxSCL tool first but now I see what it does to the files I can do it manually in notepad. I will PM you the files if you like to try - Edit : SENT.

Looks fun!  :)

Also really shows that strange floating front wheel bug when changing direction.

IMO Southern is the best track for little bike or scooter too fun and beautiful graphically!  ;D

Another funny moment on server - this time with Ducati GP15 on Aragon
