First off, i've only used the vehicle commands so far, and from what i've used, this addon seems pretty good, although it does have many problems (thats not me!)

But one problem i can't seem to fix is the steering of a car. If i fiddle with the settings, i either get quick steering response when the car is slow, and stupidly quick steering response when the car is at max speed, or stupidly slow steering when the car is slow, and still stupidly fast when the cars at max speed.

When the car is at max speed, its impossible to turn a corner, the car does a 180 on the slighest touch of turning. It also bounces like crazy when it goes over the smallest bump, and i've messed with vehicle mass, and gravity to my hearts content!

The code is below if it helps anyone.

I have not used any of the vehicle commands yet but at a quick glance I would look into setting the steering delta to slow the turn speed, and try fiddling with the suspension properties for the bouncing.

I know the voices aren't real, but they have good ideas!

actualy believe it or not when i was young and stupid i wrapped my camaros spedometer back to 35mph...what you just stated is so true...just the bouncing of the vehicle on smoothroad causes the vehicle to swerve quite a bit no matter how hard you grab the you a higher respect for those nascar drivers

Ink all over the screen...and dang it! Signature still does not show.

maybe you should have a gradual turning type thing, when they press turn it starts turning the wheels and it takes about 0.5-1 sec for the wheels to reach their full angle.
