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!
