I am having a bit of trouble with how gears work in a car.
Lets say the engine is always running at 3,000 rpm.
In first gear the ratio is 2.315 : 1
In Second gear, the ratio is 1.568 :1
And so forth, untill you get to fifth gear.
Well as most of you guys who can read and understand english, I am making a car game.
So.. I could use someones help that knows alot or stuff about the transmission box.
In my signature is the latest release to my game, but here is the code I am working with right now.
Code: Select all
If gear = 1 Then ratio = 2.315 If gear = 2 Then ratio = 1.568 If gear = 3 Then ratio = 1.195 If gear = 4 Then ratio = 1.000 If gear = 5 Then ratio = 0.915 If rpm < rpmm Then rpm = 3 / ratio EndIf If rpm < 0 Then rpm = 0
where rpm = rpm
where rpmm = rpm max - just like a real car
How would I get my car to work like a real car?
