SPE GroundTransport

by   107k spefyjerbf (based on spefyjerbf's GroundTransPort 1)  2 months ago

"Flexibility ordained by a rigorous design process."

A light transport vehicle, the GroundTransport was specifically designed to transport goods or personnel safely, and quickly. Apt at off-road locomotion as well as on the road, the GroundTransport comes with boosters and a gyro for maximum performance. It is capable of winning any race challenge, and has a 48 second Gold Prix time (with me as the driver). Novice drivers can easily do basic racing in the vehicle, while expert drivers can take the design beyond its theoretical limits.

Controls: (Optimized for keyboard, but flightsticks might be better anyway.)
Pitch and roll to move.
VTOL for gun orientation.
Activator 1 for boost online (use pitch)
Activator 2 for gyro (use on every jump to avoid spinning out on landing!)
Activator 3 for a tighter turning radius (not useful at high speeds)

Tips:
When de-activating group 1, make sure that you are not using the pitch input. This will make the boost stay on even after it is de-activated.

IMPORTANT: Boost is good on the track, but it is BAD off-road.

    Uhh, could you make an unlisted post of the mechanisms you've made on this vehicle? I am curious how you managed to do this.
