I am looking into this.
also, it is slightly glitchy when you press z
No it’s not, I believe the trucks camera point is not at the center of the car so when you press z it moves the camera
Yes, the camera focal point is where the head is in the cab of the truck.
could you change that so it doesn't look so glitchy or would it mess something else up
I can add that to the list. It shouldn't break anything, the only concern is that it might break exisiting ghosts. I'm updating the transparency now, and will see if it is safe to change the focal points on vehicle direction change
I'm just loving the glitches you can perform with this vehicle at the moment. I'm squishing it all over the place with lines and boosts, as it doesn't explode or anything when in contact.
ok, that would be great! also, there aren't enough existing ghosts that it would matter to change it now, so it is better in the future
Brett I would like it if there were sounds for the truck, like the heli powerup
I found a glitch. https://www.freeriderhd.com/t/551394-truck-glitch/r/pie42 Does anyone know why it happens?
I was thinking that the truck area might be determined by the distance between the wheels or something, idk. Cool glitch, btw
Thanks. The glitch was mainly the fact that it still says "press enter to restart" and the timer doesn't count down. It's sort of like with the helicopter glitches, only you can restart infinitely, and it happens the attempt after the glitch happens.
Brett if you collect a checkpoint during truckmode, and then run out of time while in a tight space or some place where you will immediately die once the powerup runs out, then when you press enter for the checkpoint, the timer remains frozen, and you cannot collect the star(s), much like when you combine a bomb and heli together.
I think that that's basically how the glitch works.
It happened while I was playing spruce's track
It’s exactly like the heli bomb glitch, you are both dead and alive at the same time like Schrödinger’s cat. The game is just confused of what should happen
Yes, but it shouldn't happen here. Doing the exact same thing with the heli doesn't start the glitch
We are still looking for sounds for the truck and the blob. Currently we haven't found any that would work nicely. If anyone would like to help and get some sounds for the truck, we can make a new thread or conversation and discuss possibilities.
- Idle ( optional - would be good to have though )
- accelerating (we would alter how loud it is as the truck speeds up)
Let me know if anyone has any ideas!
The opacity of ghosts has been fixed, aswell as adjusting the camera's focal point when the direction is switched. Test it out and let me know if the old camera focal point mechanics is preferred!
I have no clue what to have for blob, but for truck maybe you could have sounds from an old diesel-run car. Something like this might work (ignore the start)
