Experimental Brake Glow Mod 1.0

Ah that's hot! The brakes can now glow on all default game cars

    Glowy brakes!!
    I'm not sure why this isn't already a feature in BeamNG but here it is.


    This mod is a pretty simple and rather "Rudimentary" one. It just adds 3 stages of glow to every vehicle with disc brakes.
    As you may notice, the code for this is borrowed from another mod of mine, the Gavril Vertex

    How it works:
    The brake glow has 3 "stages". Stage 1 currently starts at 400°C and is a slightly red glow. Stage 2 is at 500°C and adds some orange to the glow. Stage 3 starts at 600°C and adds more orange and yellow.


    I adjusted the temps a bit downward to make the brake glow more noticable, so it's not that rare occasion that you can sometimes see when looking at it in the right moment. However, not that low that its always there. Heavy braking may lead to a short moment of red glow. Proceeding to do so will obviously heat-soak the brakes etc.

    Stage 1-3 look like this on normal brakes. Race brakes glow more.

    A bit of technical stuff:
    If you know a thing or two about modding, this section here moght also be interesting. Basically, the brake temperature gets accessed by a lua program that I have written. It converts the electrics value of the wheels into a value that can be used in a glowmap. The mod works by switching the material of a glowmap between "invis" and the brake glow texture. There are actually 3 extra meshes on the brake now. Each mesh is one stage. That is essentially how this whole thing works!

      Ach moin :p
      Ja da muss ich zustimmen, der Übergang ist nen bisl rau. Ich könnte es mit 2 oder 3 mal so vielen stages probieren. Muss ich mal sehen wie das aus geht
      Danke für die Review!

      Alright, fair enough, it’s a bit rough. I could add more in a future update
      Thanks for the Review!

    This is a cool and well-implemented detail for the game but I have some suggestions...

    1. Add some more stages or animate the transitions so the change isn't so harsh.

    2. The back of the rotor should glow too, you can see that with some of the cars in BeamNG.

      Thank you
      I may do that in a future update, I can’t animate it though, at least not with what I know.
      The back of the rotor glowing is also something I can add. I just left those free because you’re not gonna see the Back of the brakes anyways except when you break one off or have insane steering angle
