Engine Designer is Feature Locked

Just one thing.
Will it be mod-friendly?
Knowing that you must concentrate on the other aspects of the game, and that not all the player base would like a more in-depth engine designer, I'd not be surprised to see some "realistic" mod for it.

We aim to make it as mod-friendly as possible, yes! There are limits to that though, naturally. :)

Re: Please Note: Engine Designer is Feature Locked

I know the engine designer is locked, however can we put pickup truck chassis like the old Nissan D21 Hardbody style in there? And then move it forward like that as well? Then eventually adding diesel engines and trucks? I think that would add a new dimension to the Campaign as it would open up an industrial side to your company.

Also,

This is more of a wish - but porting this game to Linux and Mac would be good as well. This way more of a base of users could be achieved.

I second the undo button! It is quite frustrating when you are attempting to layer fixtures, and can't seem to grab the right one...

A hold/revert system is coming in the next big update. :)

If you do so, don't forget to make it work with Ctrl + Z, because clicking in a box would be really uncomfortable when moving fixtures.

Re: Please Note: Engine Designer is Feature Locked

An undo function for fixtures is not implemented yet, but definitely on our radar. Can't get everything in for the Steam release unfortunately.

Re: Please Note: Engine Designer is Feature Locked

Then what is this hold and revert button you are talking about? Is it still on the radar, just didn't make it to this update? Or is it something else compared to Ctrl+Z?

I thought this thread was all about the Engine Designer being locked. Who is making fixtures for the engine?? :mrgreen:

It's a quicksave/quickload function pretty much.

I honestly don't know where to post this, but I would like to help translating the game to Portuguese. I'm brazilian and have fluent english and a voice nice enough even for dubbing the tutorial videos.

Re: Please Note: Engine Designer is Feature Locked

At this point the engine designer is pretty much feature locked. It will receive a lot of new content (different engine types) and more forced induction options (superchargers, possibly more turbo setups), but there will not be major changes to the design process of engines or additional design choices added.


What a shame, another suggestion of me would have been to increase the boost up to 7 bar for those who would like to recreate the BMW Megatron turbo engine. :(
