My bad UE4 cars


#82

The whole lineup looks the part, even though the front end looks too much like that of a fourth-gen Eclipse, and it’s very fast as well no matter what engine you choose. But the huge gap between the V6 and V10 variants (in terms of price and performance) leaves enough room for an intermediate-level V8 trim. Also:

Quite frankly, that is a humongous amount of power; it’s a shame that there are no equivalent mid-engined bodies yet (in the UE4 release) in which to put it. But as a hypercar, the V12 XRC trim does its job admirably, and such lunacy is a welcome break from the relative sanity of less powerful machinery.


#83

That is s lot of power, yes. Also it’s the amount of power no MR car needs


#84

Why not?


#85

Because its cooling requirements alone would offset the extra power.1300 is as much as has reasonably been used in automation


#86

I thought the fastest cars were around the 1500-2000 HP range?


#87

1200-1400 and mostly RWD to save weight. Adding extra power does not produce extra real results at this point, due to traction issues, and cooling requirements, and to solve the traction you need AWD, and that’s once again weight, the loop closes. So in short - you need as much power as you can put through the rear wheels reliably.

To see this clearly - in Kee, there are a few cars that are in the 6:16 - 6:18 or so on the ring. They’re all sub 1400hp and RWD, and the fastest EVER car out there is somewhere around 6:13 mark, so make the conclussions yourself :wink:


#88

Is there a list of fastest cars? Who is holding the record? :astonished:


#89

Ekhm… Mine is AWD and a bit under 1600 hp :wink: And yeah, I could probably get the same result from RWD and a bit less power, if I only knew how to properly tune RWD cars :smile:

@Deponte As for the record - the fastest ever is obviously Strop’s :smile:
For the fastest car with lore, story, background, brand and all that speed-irrelevant stuff, that would be mine, though it wouldn’t probably be possible without Strop’s help.
And there’s no up-to-date and complete list AFAIK.

But, aren’t we taking this all a bit too far off-topic? @SideswipeBL ? If so, then sorry.


#90

I’m going to be changing the companies I use - there’s a few new ones in but most of the crowd favourites are still here.

The new company list, and their parallels:
Kismet (Aston Martin, Lotus)
Ronin (Mitsubishi, Honda, Nissan)
Nakamura (Toyota, Honda, Mazda) (yes I know it’s in Burnout shh)
Aurora (Acura)
Norris (Dodge/Plymouth)
Perbacco (Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Lancia)
Nervenkitzel (Porsche)
Cogitare (Maserati/Ferrari)
Fusaro (Pagani)
Toro (Lamborghini)
Nitrex (Kindof like what Fluke was supposed to be, just my designs, not a lot of lore)
KRA (BMW/Audi/Mercedes)
Riesling (Original?)

The axed companies:
Turbina and Tigrica (sorry Bobcat fans)
Fluke (no cars!)
Daytona (horrible cars)
Veltri (Toro and Fusaro are cooler names)


#91

To be honest, there was no need for the companies that you have just axed, because all of them were either lost causes or never really go off the ground. As for the ones you’ve kept, making parallels to real-life equivalents makes enough sense for me not to question the logic behind them


#92

So… You’re getting into the region of making another Porsche of Automationverse, huh…? We’ll see how will that work out :smiley:


#93

Why is this engine so inefficient?

Well alright then. No Perbacco 100 for you.

Of course it’s fast.

Finally got this body to look good. Took some effort but I think it’s one of my best-looking cars, especially at the front.

Props to you for figuring out how to fill out the rear! I had the same idea for the tail lights based off the Saleen S5 Raptor but couldn’t figure out how to get around the curve at the top. I suck at making modern cars haha. Looks good!


#97

Those last two designs look the part, and have performance to match. In particular, I dig the taillight loop on the Ryujin.


#98

UE4 has basically zero in-game bugs for me but it crashes so often and for seemingly no reason (eg I move the camera, game crashes, the next day it’s something else) that it’s become almost impossible to create a car without being frustrated to the point that I just give up. I deduced in the previous versions that it was down to post-processing being set too high, and this fixed the problem, but now it’s back.

It amazes me that these random crashes, which I have been having since the UE4 game was released, were fixed in the update before this one, and came back in the car designer overhaul as if they weren’t even acknowledged.

It has been 218 days since Open Beta R1 was released. I’m afraid that at this point it’s unacceptable, even for an open beta. This is more of an open alpha, especially since the actual core intended gameplay (campaign) hasn’t even been implemented yet.

So don’t expect any new cars until a hotfix rolls around for a bug that has existed for 8 months.


#99

Hello Fella!

Can you please post the Specifications of your PC? (Processor, Windows version etc) That could help to narrow it down somewhat. If the game crashes randomly we have to fix it, also i hope you always send the BugSplats?

Also: What also could be is some derelict files causing a bit of a hiccup. Go to your \Documents\My Games\Automation folder and clear all the settings.lua and maybe the .db files (attention, you may lose your cars and engine, so dont if you dont want to - its optional) then go to C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Local\AutomationGame\ and delete the Saved folder completely.

That way you practically reset the game to “Day 0”, which could possibly help if there is some file laying around from OpenBeta Day1 that causes an issue on Day218.


#100

Here are my specs

Windows 7 SP1
Intel i3-6100 @ 3.7 GHz
8 GB of ram
AMD Radeon R9 200 Series

I’ll try deleting the Saved folder later. As in, right after posting this.

EDIT: This seems to have worked. I’ll post the first-gen Ryujin today or tomorrow.
EDIT 2: No it didn’t. Fuck.


#101

Sorry to hear you’re getting a bunch of crashes, I suspect the reason we’ve not acknowledged/fixed this bug, is I don’t think it’s one that anyone has reported to us, and it seems like it might be relatively rare.

Tagging @zeussy incase he has any questions about it.
