[handling.dat] Explained

Not sure if this is the correct thread but, I am having a weird problem in opening my .ide and .dat's I opened them via notepad and there were no handlings like in SA, only weird words and stuff, same to all the .dat files I got, also I am using EFLC.

That's because those files were decrypted. Install the latest patch and those files will be fully moddable. icon14.gif

Sorry for the bump, but, if I want to make my drift car have more grip (for cornering), do I have to be looking at this?

having issues with my steering. the car goes fast as hell, and it gets good traction and has good suspension and doesnt tip or anything. but it doesnt seem to steer at all. played with the steering lock settings but it did nothing at all. tried .20, .39, .75, 1, 2, 39, 55, 90, 200. all of those were exactly the same. the vehicle i am useing is the comet and i coppied the settings someone used in a screenshot earlier in this topic.

increase TractionCurveLateral . if you can't see no effect after that , it's very likely that your game is overmodded . an excessive game workload causes the handling to mess around

ya changing that did nothing, i went both ways with it. i dont believe its too much moding since the only thing im changing is the handleing file with the comet only.

if you do the thing correctly it should work . be sure GTA is not running while you tweak the handling . and don't forget to save

Hello everyone,

 

I had been testing the drag/mass/power/gear values in game, and came to this. It may help you all.

 

Speed units are reduced due to the more real feeling, so it is like 3/2 of speed in game. (If game shows you running 66kmh you are going 100kmh in my calculations)

 

Notice:

I performed all test on airfield, using one straight from one to another end. So I parked car so the rear wheels were on margin of asphalt, and full speed till the end of airstrip. And when car went off the asphalt, that was my ending point.

 

 

First what I did, I took a car of 1000kg put the Tf to 0.100, no of speed to 6 and max speed to 400kmh. Then I tested all 3 possibilities of drive-train (RWD - 0.0; FWD - 1.0; AWD - 0.5). Here are the results:

 

drag 1.00 - speeds 246(0.0) 244(1.0) 246(0.5)

drag 2.00 - speeds 238(0.0) 232(1.0) 235(0.5)

drag 5.00 - speeds 215(0.0) 215(1.0) 217(0.5)

drag 10.0 - speeds 199(0.0) 202(1.0) 200(0.5)

drag 20.0 - speeds 165(0.0) 170(1.0) 170(0.5)

drag 50.0 - speeds 133(0.0) 133(1.0) 133(0.5)

drag 100. - speeds 102(0.0) 102(1.0) 099(0.5)

 

 

Next what I did, is increase the Tf value to 0.200, 0.300 and 0.400. And because of possible slip effect, I only used the 0.5 drive-train settings (aka AWD). Here are the results:

 

drag 1.00 - speeds 315(0.200) 367(0.300) 409(0.400)

drag 2.00 - speeds 305(0.200) 353(0.300) 394(0.400)

drag 5.00 - speeds 277(0.200) 332(0.300) 360(0.400)

drag 10.0 - speeds 258(0.200) 297(0.300) 330(0.400)

drag 20.0 - speeds 215(0.200) 256(0.300) 276(0.400)

drag 50.0 - speeds 170(0.200) 189(0.300) 210(0.400)

drag 100. - speeds 133(0.200) 155(0.300) 160(0.400)

 

 

Next I wanted to see if the mass of wehicle does any difference to altogether. So I did 4 tests with 500kg and 2000kg and Tf of 0.200 and 0.300. Here are the results:

 

500kg

drag 1.00 - speeds 318(0.200) 367(0.300)

drag 10.0 - speeds 261(0.200) 286(0.300)

drag 100. - speeds 133(0.200) 145(0.300)

 

2000kg

drag 1.00 - speeds 318(0.200) 367(0.300)

drag 10.0 - speeds 253(0.200) 288(0.300)

drag 100. - speeds 133(0.200) 155(0.300)

 

- RED color means that wheels were slipping

 

 

So after all this, I wanted to see one more thing. Since mostly results were affected by gearbox (as mentioned before it was 6 gear with max speed of 400kmh), so I put a 1 gear with max speed of 400, and of course 1000kg and Tf of 0.200. Here are the results:

 

drag 1.00 - speeds 264(0.5)

drag 2.00 - speeds 250(0.5)

drag 5.00 - speeds 223(0.5)

drag 10.0 - speeds 194(0.5)

drag 20.0 - speeds 153(0.5)

drag 50.0 - speeds 105(0.5)

drag 100. - speeds 074(0.5)

 

 

OK, so these are all testings I've done, next what I wanted to share with you guys are some parameter calculations that would give a game as much possible as it gets real car attributes of mass, torque, power and speed.

And as mentioned, all speeds up there must be multiplied by 0.66 if you want real in game speeds!!!

 

TopSpeedGame = TopSpeedReal*0.66

 

x = Mass/TorqueReal/log(PowerReal)

y = 1/x

TorquePower = y/4

 

DragGame = log(TorqueReal*PowerReal)

 

TopSpeedGame - Tv, although this is set as top speed, car will go for 20% more speed. This is more like a engine redline

TopSpeedReal - max theoretical speed car can achieve with it's current settings of gearbox

Mass - B and it is real mass of the car

TorqueReal - torque of the car engine in real life measuerd in Nm

PowerReal - power of the car engine in real life measured in PS

TorquePower - Tf

DragGame - C ingame drag coeficient

x, y - helping variables

 

The variables that are Bold/Italic are ones from handling.dat file located in "Gamefolder\common\data\"

 

 

Hope this will help someone, cheers...

 

P.S.: ...if admins think this is useful, please nail it sticky on this forum, thanks!

But I have some questions, if someone can explain it to me, since I didn't find it anywhere.

 

Ford Coupe '34 has doors that open revers. Is there any flag or command for player toon to know this? I know there are some flags in vehicles.ide but didn't find explanation for those.

Is there a way to add sounds from other cars? I know for a way in file vehicles.ide to change 5th name to name of vehicle that you want to use sound. I'm looking to use SultanRS sound on other cars, but don't want to write sultanrs in vehicles.ide (because of car name)?!?

Is there a way to get rid of that annoying sounds and smoke on (rusty) cars?

And is there a way to disable specials on some cars and/or add them on others(like on Feroci VIP)?

 

Thanks...

Great post, thanks, it helped me a lot. I was able to fix a f*cked up imponte phoenix import from gta 5 to 4 with it, its center of mass wasn't done right.
