Re: Automation FAQ - [Updated 27/1/14]

THere is this thing on the upper right corner of the page, it is called a search function. Had you used it, you would have all your answers.

Rotaries? Not decided yet.
Flat? Yes.
Multiple turbos? Yes
Twincharging? Not decided yet.

Custom tracks? Yes, you can check them on the test track section of the forums.
Why bother though, there is the top speed stat already, which gives the top speed of the car.

It blends in with the black background quite well, first time on the forum, didn't quite spot it.
Now that you said it, I'll use it.

Re: Automation FAQ - [Updated 27/1/14]

Ok, so here is a new question.

if you have the pre ordered version of the game will the diesel engine ( assuming it becomes a thing ) be free to you, or will you have to pay for it as well?

Re: Automation FAQ - [Updated 27/1/14]

Well, it depends.

As you said, it hasn't been confirmed. And when they decide to do it, they could release it as a DLC, since it isn't on the Automation 1.0 package.

Re: Automation FAQ - [Updated 27/1/14]

yea I agree they can totallydo that and I wouldn't be mad if they did, im just curious because I have played games that gave the pre order customers all DLC for free as it was released. but again that was only for the guys who pre ordered.

Re: Automation FAQ - [Updated 27/1/14]

If Diesel engines ever make it into Automation, it will be as DLC that is free for no one. We can't just give out 6 months of development time for free. It won't cost much though I would think.

Re: Automation FAQ - [Updated 27/1/14]

All good KillRob just curious how it would be worked. LIke I said I have played games like that before where they made all DLC available to pre buyers totally free, But I have no issues paying for your guys hard work and time and I kinda wish you had a paypal donations spot. I am sure many would donate I know I would easily throw another 50$ your way and possibly on a recurring manner.

I cannot imagine getting that much content for free! I'm happy to pay for DLC if it's something I want and the price is acceptable. There will always be steam sales too. Diesel engines can be a DLC. Rotary engines can be a DLC. Electric engines and hybrids can be a DLC. I'm happy with those ideas. Things that would take a lot of work, and time to build can be DLC and I'd be happy to buy them if they are things I want.

Keep up the good work!
Personally I'd like to see manhours and MTBF return rather than production units and reliability score of 0-100.

This is the wrong part of the forums for that question, try to repost it here viewforum.php?f=16 and give a bit more information as to what is going wrong :)

Have you checked all your emails for the game key (including your email linked to PayPal)? Spam folders? It is very unlikely that the email didn't get through, please have another look.

The 12th of March, the new update is happening with the Steam release - http://automationgame.com/2015/02/19/st ... king-tire/

There aren't any more engine configurations in this update though, just more car design stuff and a bunch of general improvements.
