dashboard gauges! got it working, made some REDACTED-ish ones, got em calibrated! some bug is making the indicators (current gear, rev limiter indicator, headlight icon, etc.) not update. they work occasionally if I change something like the max engine RPM (sometimes) and then won’t in subsequent plays. super random. spent a lot of time going through code but haven’t gotten it working consistently yet. maybe move this code to a script we know is working, like the one that draws the speed labels (now hidden) and needles.
bug was due to code not running when game controlling the car (rolling start). took a SHITLOAD of re-coding to get it to work because the other method made the gauges inaccurate and there was no way to adjust them without recoding parts. f***.
got eye adaptation to work! many tweaks to settings to get it looking nice. set up/down speed to 0.5 so it takes about 6 seconds to adapt (which feels like an eternity when you’re flying down a highway and can barely see… ahh haahaaahaahahahahahahaaaa!).
playing with car variables while dialing in gauge accuracy: torque, max rpm, # gears, etc. to get things feeling as REDACTED as possible.
