Improved Vehicle Control

Post by ssilk » Mon Mar 07, 2016 2:07 am

Players have the problem to control the car/tank at high speed, if they want just to drive long, straight road.

Here's what bothers me.

If you press W to go forward - or S to go backward - while the car is moving in the opposite direction, the car simply stops.

To change direction, you must do the following:
- Release forward, press backward instead.
- Wait for the car to stop.
- Release backward, press backward again.

This holds true if the car has _any_ velocity, even a tiny amount. Try this:
- While the car is still, press forward _very_ briefly. Let the car roll forward on its own.
- Notice the car is still moving after 10 seconds. After about 20 seconds tho, it looks like it has stopped.
- Press backward. Notice the car doesn't move backward, because it actually still has _just a tiny bit_ forward velocity left.

Cars usually have a pretty consistent behavior in video games.
I was getting badly eaten in the tutorial, because I was constantly getting "stuck" in the middle of biters. I'm pressing a key and the car just sits there. It was pretty annoying :P

As for the car, can we just have the turning radius increase as a function of the speed? That way, as it goes faster the steering gets less "touchy". Want to turn sharp? Just slow down.

I bet there's a mod for this, but I'm too new to understand Mods yet.
