Four-Wheel Steering?


I don’t know. Could be cool.


Could be, but only very few cars used it and most of the driving dynamics calculations would have to be extended for another degree of freedom and a control system, probably automatically parametrised, would have to be added. Barely possible. At least with me. :slight_smile:
If it is not integrated into the simulation and if it is just a simple boring bonus on tameness, sportiness and comfort, it is not worth including it. There are other driver assistance functions which are more common and have a smaller influence on the simulation and thus can be neglected there more easily.




recalls the one time he drove a car with 4WS

recalls vomiting that day from the motion

vomits again


Only a few cars?

(Sorry, but some comments are in Spanish).


As I said, only a few. Around 50 cars in the whole automotive history. A lot less than 1%.


But can be a option when the game had finished.

Not if it isn’t viable, as your list shows.

Ok. The last option is a mod of community.


It’s not like a grill or a body, it would require a lot of calculation altering and for what? A possible bump in tameness for a hike in service cost, production hours, manufacturing costs, the R&D to develop, tooling costs, a drop in reliability and extra weight? It’s a neat system but there’s a lot of very good reasons it has not seen wide spread use.


It would be worse than having a few stats tweaked, indeed this would be rather complex to implement into the simulations (if not impossible in the current model).




Another 4 wheel steering car/model is the Toyota Curren (technically its a Celica, but its a Jap only special) it’s a niche one for sure, but I guess worth mentioning:



And all you did it for was some “worth mentioning”, not even picking up the long dead topic.
