Unless this is already fixed in 4.0, I have noticed that Renegade does not correctly ignore fake (F) wheel bones. It seems to work perfectly fine for driving forward; however, once you throw the vehicle in reverse it will continue to go faster and faster until it's at the max speed of the torque*gear[0] ratio without something that is accounted for normally.

I assume the bug must be in the "Sophisticated Engine Simulation" beings the bug of the vehicle going faster in reverse than it can forward seems isolated to wheeled vehicles.

Negative. Fake wheels (even in stock code) immediately return from WheelClass::Compute_Force_And_Torque. It's the only thing that can influence the vehicle speed.

Well I just remade the test again, one model has 2 addition fake bones and the other doesn't. The one that does reaches 175mph in reverse before I run out of road, the other maxes out at 50mph before 1/10th of the road is traveled and never exceeds that.

Sure they don't count all the wheels outside that method or something, because it does make a difference if you add fake bones to the wheeled vehicle (Here's a test to make it fun! Very Happy).

(Files need to be named civtrkRapter.w3d to be used).

I suggest you do the fake wheels one first that way you can rage quit when the one with no fake wheels you only makes it to the third rock in 3 minutes.
