I recently bought the game to help support development and can’t wait for the full tycoon mode (pure sandbox games are boring!).
I’ve been wondering whether the detail of the simulation will ever be explained, so that people don’t waste their time trying to use real world design techniques that have no effect in the game. In particular, I get the feeling from experimentation that centre of gravity isn’t modelled in any sophisticated way as oversquare and undersquare engines of the same weight and configuration don’t seem to have any effect on handling, despite oversquare having a lower CoG in real life (excl. wide angle Vs and boxers). Same with OHV vs OHC engines, where OHV should have lower/centralised CoG.
