I’m also going to address a few points here.
Aluminum bodies have the “no mass production” flag for too long, Jaguar was mass producing aluminum XJs since 2003. I assume in the final game mass produced aluminum bodies is going to be something you have to unlock/develop?
It seems like we have very different views on what mass-production means where are the millions of XJs? A no mass production flag just lowers production output by 50%, not an issue for Jaguar, but for Toyota. Also, production tech will be reworked for LC V3.
No Aluminum space frames at all?
Not yet, full alloy semi-spaceframes will be in the game.
Not going to happen, that’s a technical limitation of how morphing works. It would be possible but cost us months of work, just not worth it.
Billet crankshaft has lower material cost than forged. Considering you’re buying a billet that can contain the entire crank
Good point, we’ll address that if it is not too much of a hassle (it’s an exception to the rule).
Can we have hotter cams now?
Geared LSD should offer some offroad bonus
Yes, these things will be address in the next big update which will include a rebalance of the car designer.
Carbon Ceramic seems to become available too late
No. Techpool is a thing, as NormanVauxhall points out.
Pad & Spring balance
Probably will be changed somewhat in the next big update, too.
Downforce / Lift
I’d have to read up on that… does a wing (car!) become less draggy by gluing parts too it which reduce its lift? That doesn’t sound right to me. A fully clad undertray would produce more lift and less drag because of freer flow, afaik. You don’t get rid of the overall shape of the car which causes lift.
Really? I’d think in the sandbox everything should unlock in the earliest possible year
Disagreed. But we may have a custom company techpool setting for sandbox eventually.
Thanks for the post and discussion! This is useful stuff
