    Hey,
    Is there a way that I could enable the transmission whine on forward gears as it does when you are in reverse in a manual gearbox car? So as to emulate a racecar transmission better.
    Thank you for reading, let me know if I posted in the wrong subforum.

    Oh, like this? Sure.


    Sequential transmission, look in game files.

    Thank you for your quick response,
    I think I should have asked if there was a way to implement it in an Automation export? As in, is it just a few lines in the engine .jbeam?

    Yes, check those SBR4 transmissions, you can find from there how to implement sequential transmission.

    There is a wiki page too, but it does not cover sequential gearbox, manual gearbox is same though only name changes, it is only change of one line really to get the whine:

    Code:
    "gearWhineCoefs": [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0],
    doesn't have to be a sequential transmission. each 1 is a gear with whine, and each 0 is one without. just try to keep your neutral gear a 0, it's weird to have that one whine.

    This is cool. I didn't even notice this since I usually play with my audio down or off.

    Can I use this with a 10 speed dct from the hybrid sbr mod?

    yes, any transmission. just add that code into the "gearbox" section of the jbeam, matching it up with your gear ratios. example:
    Code:
    "gearRatios":[-3.35, 0, 3.32, 1.90, 1.31, 1.00, 0.84]
    "gearWhineCoefs":[1, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1],
    so each 1 is a whining gear and each 0 is not. in this example, the 0 is added where neutral would be.

    btw you can also set it to inbetween values like 0.5 or 0.33 if you want it to whine less in specific gears.

    Can someone give me the values for the sequential?
