Making Handling Lines

Recommended Posts

Edward_FFS

Well, let's say "traction" is all about your tires:

 

-> Traction Multiplier and Traction Loss

 

This will be the road/tires friction value. If it's too high, the tires just won't drift, like they were glued to the ground, and if it's too low, the tires will drift like you were wearing fluffy socks on a waxed floor

 

The difference between these two, is that the Multiplier one will only affect the cornering grip, if it's too high you'll probably be cornering like "Herbie" (or crash if you don't have a proper suspension). The Loss one is the grip when accelerating or braking, if it's too low your car will be on a burnout for a quite long time biggrin.gif .

 

-> Traction Bias

 

This one, many people doesn't give much importance, but IT IS IMPORTANT!. When driving a car, we must know what drivetrain it has: 4WD, RWD or FWD. And the tires must be addapted to any of those situations, or else, it'll be a difficult ride.

Have you ever noticed why, let's say, a Corvette has the rear tires larger than the front ones? It's a RWD, if so, it needs more grip power in the back than in the front.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

GTA SA, isn't THAT realistic, but follows the the same thought: 0.5 is the default value, it means the tires are all the same (good for 4WD or FWD), but if you lower the number, let's say, to 0.47, you'll be shifting the grip backwards (good for RWD), and if you raise the number, you'll be shifting the grip forward (good for FWD drifting).

 

I hope I answered your question wink.gif

 

Regards,

Yeah, but do you have any car model for me to use? It's better that way, since the suspension/weight/COM values will match the car perfectly...

Hello Edward, ive used some of your previous lines and i must say they're great! Now im just looking for an Audi R8 V10 Coupé Realistic handling line! smile.gif

Heres some specs to help:

 

Weight: 1,625 kg

1-100 Km/H: 3,9 Seconds

0-200 Km/H: 11,8 Seconds

Top speed: 316 Km/H

Straight of the wiki wink.gif

 

And if you could maybe make it abit drifty it would be great! Not to much though. biggrin.gif

 

Thanks in advance.

Specs:

 

- 0-100 km/h -> 3.8 sec

- 0-200 km/h -> 11.8 sec

- 200-0 km/h -> ~3.0 sec (don't know if it's real, I just thought it would be nice to have a decent braking power)

- ABS System

- Real weight

- 4WD

- Xenon lights

- Larger turning angle

- Top speed: ~317 km/h

- Drifts a little...

 

NOTE:

-> All these time values are according to my trigger finger on the stopwatch, so, they may not be that accurate.

-> Thanks to Oksa8 for his accurate speedometer.

-> If there's something out of place, let me know wink.gif

-> Thanks for trying my handling lines!

 

And for the rest of the community, if you want accurate handling lines, PLEASE, give me the 3D model of the vehicle you're using colgate.gif

Alright buddy, I need your help one more time. biggrin.gif

 

I'm not finished with this handling line for the Audi A8 (can't adjust the 0-100km/h time because my speedometer doesn't appear anymore, don't know why) but my big problem with this line is that the turning circle (if you drive around 100km/h) is way too big... and I tried almost everything but I can't change it. Is it because of the 4WD?

HI

 

Sorry for replying this late, but college steals me a lot of time confused.gif

 

And no, 4WD cars actually don't have a bigger turning circle than RWD cars. As you asked, I tweaked it a little:

 

 

1855.0  3850.0  1.1  0.0  0.19  -0.2  85  0.7  0.5  0.5  5  250  28  105  4  P  8.5  0.5  1  38  0.9  0.12  0.0  0.2  -0.05  0.53  0.5  0.25  0.43  129000  40202000  1D00001  0  3  1  

 

 

I only changed the center of mass position and the steering lock, looks good I guess... Try it out wink.gif

I'm just looking for something like this

That's 4WD drifting, isn't it? It's written on the video description...

I refeered to the car -.-, but I want a FWD line, please!!!

 

1280.0  4000.0  1.0  0.0  -0.35  -0.1  75  0.6  0.7  0.72  5  250.0  50.0  25.0  F  P  8.0  0.55  0  45.0  1.9  0.6  0.0  0.242  -0.05  0.5  0  0.2  0.46  580000  40000000  1604403  1  1  1  

 

 

Well, it's FWD and it drifts... See and say what you think... Never done anything like this lol

the problem is that when it drift it just slide and keep going straight :s, and it goes too fast

-----------------

PLEASE PLEASE MAKE THIS DRIFT HANDLING

if u make it you'll be a god

----------------------

1600.0 2550.0 2.0 0.0 0.0 -0.2 60 0.60 0.8 0.6 5? 150.0 60.0 5.0 4 P 100 0.5 0 35.0 1.0 0.20 0.0 0.28 -0.10 0.5 0.3 0.26 0.00 19000 40000004 00000004 0 3 0 

got this, its nice but it will be nicer if it were more controllable(less "hesitation"), a little more grip to do the circles faster, and when you are for example drifting left and need to get the car straight, when u press right to make it goes straight, make it go straight and dont drift to the right

idk if you understand what i want

I know what you want, but that handling line I made a few time ago, I was asked a FWD drifting line. In the video they were using 4WD, wich is WAAAAY easier to make, I believe I already made a few actually.

 

But I'll take yours and perfect it, and attempt to be a god lol

 

BTW, are you using any 3D model in particular? If so, give me the download link, it's better if I make the line based on it.

 

 

 

PS: I released a pack of handling lines a few months ago, not sure it was worth it LOL, but still, you can always try the "Ken Block" one, but it may be too fast. HERE

HI

 

So, here's my first experiment:

 

1450.0  2200.0  1.0  0.0  -0.3  -0.25  75  0.62  0.85  0.59  5  250.0  56.0  28.0  4  P  11.0  0.5  0  45.0  1.2  0.15  0.0  0.14  -0.041  0.55  0  0.25  0.60  135000  40002804  1400003  1  1  1  

 

 

It's limited to +/- 250 km/h, I don't think you'll need more for drifting, but as I said, this is my first experiment. I could tell you the specs, but there's nothing like demonstration:

can you tell me how you learned to make the handlings? im just interested on making drift ones, pls tell me.

and, do you have a tool to actualize handling.cfg file while playing gta? to dont close and open every time the game to check the change?

Well, not sure about Edward, but I started making handlings as for fun, for messing around. Then, got into a modding site and began to create realistic handlings, and now after two years, I'm trying to master my skills by creating as realistic handling as possible, with correct 0-100km/h acceleration time, correct quarter-mile time and speed and with other stuff. smile.gif

 

But for your handling, I'd recommend setting your SteeringLock from 50.0 to maximum of 45.0. I think even over 40.0 is too much. biggrin.gif

thanks alot oksa, that was exactly what i was asking.

now i have another question,

how i make the car slide less when drift so it do like "short curves"?

Edward_FFS

Sorry for not responding earlier, but exams came through, surgery, etc etc -.-''

 

But for it to drift less just raise the Traction Loss value (if you also raise the Multiplier a little bit, it may also help wink.gif )

 

How I learned? Well, mostly by messing around with numbers like Oksa8 lol. I got a little tired of those modders that have amazing works, but upload their mods with crappy handling lines, no ofense blush.gif . Then I started to take it more seriously, and researched more about it. Cerbera's Project is a really good tutorial, but mostly, you must know a bit about cars' physics, you know? If you know a bit about cars, and know the variables, it's child's play wink.gif

what oksa8 told me was working, but i just replaced the uranus model with THIS MODEL and now i have the same problem, the car dont turn, and when i drift the car slide a bit but i cant keep it sliding, it turns and go straight, and i tried but cant fix it

can you try to fix it

HI

 

I see what you're trying to say, I tried to make it work better, here's the things I changed:

 

-> WEIGHT:

This S15 is Drift Spec, do a little reaserch and you'll find out that no Drift Spec car has more than 3000kg, like you had it. Changed it to 1350kg.

 

-> CENTER OF MASS:

Shifting the center of mass backwards helps maintain the weight well distributed. Changed the "y" coordinate to -0.16.

 

-> TRACTION BIAS:

0.52, for a 4WD drivetrain is TOO stable. Raised it to 0.585.

 

-> INNERTIA:

You need torque to drift, but 4WD drifting, you even need more! Raised it to 17.5.

 

-> ACCELERATION:

When raising torque, it's better to raise acceleration too. Raised it to 31.6.

 

-> STEERING LOCK:

Raised to 47.0.

 

-> SUSPENSION:

Loved it! Great suspension set-up wink.gif

 

I don't know if this is what you're looking for, but at least now you know what variables you should give more attention wink.gif

 

Here:

 

1350.0  1200.0  2.0  0.0  -0.16  -0.1  75  0.50  0.60  0.585  5  240.0  31.6  17.5  4  P  4.0  0.65  0  47.0  0.25  1.0  2.0  0.03  -0.02  0.5  0.0  0.25  0.60  35000  40880004  540840B  1  1  1  

 

 

I hope this helps. Good luck with the handling lines making colgate.gif

If you didn't study Physics, the Center of Mass is the point where the weight force is applied. Have you ever tried to balance a pen on your finger? If so, you had to try to find a point in the pen where it would be stable, without falling, right? That point is its Center of Mass.

 

If the explanation was bad, try Wikipedia

 

Once you understand the concept of Center of Mass, you'll know how important it is. Car makers nowadays are really careful about weight balance and weight distribution.

For drift, it's obviously good to shift the center of mass backwards (Y coordinate). And if you're looking for a low center of gravity, lower Z coordinate. About X coordinate, it shifts the center of mass rightwards and leftwards, so, don't mess with it, leave it at 0.0 wink.gif

 

An Example:

Do you watch D1GP? The 2004 edition of the BLITZ's team ER34, as I read, got the Gas deposit moved to the trunk, and enlarged to 100L, so they could control the weight balance more accuratelly by putting more or less gas in it. Genius, right?

Thanks for the intel about the cars, it saves me a lot of time. But could you give me the links to the GTA SA models? It's better that way.

Car dimensions? So, you're making a line for GTA III... The car dimensions, just search online the real car's intel or make up some values you think that's realistic. I didn't make many for GTA III, but I believe the game file was in milimiters.

Handling flags affect the overall handling. Model flags, as the name says, affect the model, they mess mostly with viewable things.

Handling flags are the ones you should give more attention, like "Use Max Sp Limit" ALWAYS use this, the game won't crash if you don't but as I see, you seek realism, so, activate it wink.gif

Then there's 1G and 2G boost flags, that's will give the car extra torque in the first and second gear, there's flags to make the tires wider or thinner, disable handbrake, steer on the rear wheels, etc etc. But don't tottaly forget about the Model Flags, they can be useful too!

Hope this helps wink.gif

Hm, I see. I asked for the models because things like Center of Mass, Weight, even the dimension of the model are needed to make it more realistic.

Making it go from 0-100 in the sec's needed, it's a piece of cake, not even need the model. But the suspension set-up, for example, won't be that good, you're following?

If you're afraid I'll released it in my name, don't be. It's not the first time I have unrealeased models in my hand, and even my videos on youtube, they may be crappy, but I never took credit for the models or anything else, only for the handling lines wink.gif

Then there's 1G and 2G boost flags, that's will give the car extra torque in the first and second gear, there's flags to make the tires wider or thinner, disable handbrake, steer on the rear wheels, etc etc. But don't tottaly forget about the Model Flags, they can be useful too!

Hope this helps wink.gif

Hm, I see. I asked for the models because things like Center of Mass, Weight, even the dimension of the model are needed to make it more realistic.

Making it go from 0-100 in the sec's needed, it's a piece of cake, not even need the model. But the suspension set-up, for example, won't be that good, you're following?

If you're afraid I'll released it in my name, don't be. It's not the first time I have unrealeased models in my hand, and even my videos on youtube, they may be crappy, but I never took credit for the models or anything else, only for the handling lines wink.gif
