PHYSICS Introducing the 5 point tyre model for ACC!

Discussion in 'ACC Blog' started by Aristotelis, Jul 18, 2019.

  1. So this is why it felt weird at first how I had to drive virtually into the grass at Zolder to feel the curbs! And at Monza how I knew I was driving over the big bumps but never felt them!

    This is absolutely brilliant work! Science. Thanks for sharing all the detail that the team is putting into continuously evolving the product. Truly amazing.

    Looking forward to lapping many tracks, especially Silverstone, Nurburgring and Spa.

    When I saw this post yesterday in between daily work and had a glance over it I simply could not believe this ;-)
    Having read the post more closely now I can only say:

    Thank you very much Aris for taking the time and effort to explain it in such great detail - this should be pinned very high up in the Blog section as one of THE MAJOR advancements in racing sims over the years and surely will be a major marketing tool to set the ACC product apart from the last generation of racing sims.

    Thanks a lot to everyone working so busy on such a big change! You guys rock!

    I think the middle point is at the front. So it has to be moved up or down.

    Absolutely amazing, the sheer passion and ability to develop this features are remarkable. I already was hooked on ACC, but this will even extend my addiction.

  15. As we know tyre wear "simulate the tread depth and we lower the depth as the tyre wears out". I had a sort of feeling that this causes the total car heights to change (even if I talk about a half mm in worst scenarios of a front-rear difference) and combined with fuel consumption the car becomes more under/over steering.
    If my feeling was correct I would ask if and how the car changes with a 5 points tyre wear. Will it depend on wich part of the tyre is actually touching mostly the road/curb..?
    It's an interesting part of simulated physics deserves to be known in deep.

    Thanks in advice

    I don't think so, today I don't see any activity in the steam branches, last dev deploy is about 17 hours ago..

    Very good news about the tire! The improved TC sounds very nice too

    Probably there won't be any beta release because it would break online compatibilty?

    guess I read somewhere that a beta for 1.0.6 was not possible but for 1.0.7 it would be possible. but Im not sure.
