Stick Shift based Transmission system.
Developing a real powerband via logistics graph and 'Current Angle' output from a rotator, and receiving help from XJ4B and 11qazxc on the Funky Trees Lab, I've developed a new manual transmission system.
Like a real IC engine, a Powerband plays a part in the power of the engine. The logistics graph determines how much power is delivered based on the angle of a rotator you can see on the build. The Rotator will be have much like an actual car's powerband, meaning the redline will be something to avoid, there's even a semi-working Rev Limiter!
Since the RPM is linked to a rotator, a gauge could be easily tuned to match it allowing for a functioning Tachometer. Due to the nature of the rotator's input, the selected weapon inputs can also in theory be replaced with 'GS > #' inputs for an Automatic transmission.
Instructions of operation and gear ratio edits are on the build. Feel free to use this for your own builds, just give credit!
Also included are a working shifting stick which moves based on the selected gear, alongside Mutli-Link Suspension with Anti Roll bar, front steering rack, and HICAS based rear steering rack.
