Drive V (Realistic Driving / Car Handling & Damage + Full DLC Support) 5.0

Last ned

12 709

Drive V is the result of 5 years and over 2,000 hours of learning the physics system and testing in order to create a realistic and fun experience. Every vehicle is unique (even some variants that originally shared the same handling line) and has had careful attention to every single dynamic attribute. The most critical change I felt was needed was the Z-axis rotation, which is what made the vanilla cars feel so darty with every flick of the wheel. Now, heavy and old vehicles have a realistic delay between steering inputs and the car reacting, giving something like the Emperor the sloppy feel of a '70s Cadillac, and making semi trucks actually feel like you're driving a massive rig. You'll also notice vehicles like the Emperor have a very soft suspension and more body roll (but not cartoonish GTAIV levels of roll). For an example of the attention to detail: The taxi has less precise steering and poorer brakes than the police variant to reflect wear and tear because taxis are often driven hard with high mileage. The police variant gets a power boost and improved handling to reflect the police package upgrades, but still feels like a heavy Crown Victoria that's prone to oversteer, whereas the Interceptor drives like a more modern car.

Power levels and acceleration have been adjusted to match vehicles' real world counterparts, to the extent of calculating the net SAE horsepower ratings of old muscle cars that used a different rating standard (SAE gross) to determine a true realistic power output. Off-road traction has been overhauled for realism. Damage/deformation has been increased to a realistic level, similar to GTAIV. Downforce has been removed from everything except supercars that would actually produce downforce. Finally, the original game had many cars sitting at unusually low ride heights, so they have been raised to reflect the ride heights of their real world counterparts.

- Vehicle cabin deformation enabled
- Level of deformation similar to IV
- Downforce disabled from all but supercars
- Scaled top speeds
- Re-worked off-road surfaces

New for 5.0: Every DLC update now supported. Base game motorcycles now supported as well. The motorcycles in this game are a real challenge to extract realism from, but I did the best I could to get some level of oversteer and quell how darty they behave. This lead to some issues with the suspension and/or wheels scraping during heavy oversteer that I've mostly eliminated. I also worked on the Blazer quite a bit to make it more controllable and less prone to spinning out. I found the issue with the Stromberg's handling to be the submersible handling data, so I removed it. That means it no longer works as a submarine but now can actually handle normally. I did the same for the Toreador. Big changes to the Tampa Drift. Removed advanced flags from relevant DLCs. Various tweaks to Gauntlet, Gauntlet Classic, Desert Raid, Hustler, JB700, Yosemite, Rumpo Custom, Scramjet and Swinger.

New for 4.0: Further improved off-road physics with special attention to Redwood Lights motocross track. Expanded DLC support up to and including After Hours (however, support for supercars is now limited). Gave North Yankton snow variant vehicles their own handling lines with improved off-road traction due to tire chains. Tightened up the Police Interceptor's suspension and handling. Reduced body roll for Comet. Various tweaks to other already supported cars.

New for 3.0: Damage deformation has been significantly overhauled, particularly in regard to DLC vehicles, which Rockstar strangely reduced deformation on compared to base vehicles. I had a breakthrough when I finally discovered a function separate from the deformation multiplier, which was limiting deformation. No other realistic damage mod I've seen uses that function. Also, with the help of ENB to disable damage limits to the passenger compartment, we can finally achieve a true semblance of realistic damage, even for cab-forward vehicles like the Surfer and Journey. The other big change is off-road handling. That aspect is still a work in progress, but the goal was to create a wider gulf between street vehicles and off-roaders. It always bothered me that a supercar or a family sedan could handle just as well offroad as a Sandking.

This mod is recommended to be used with ikt's InversePower mod (for power oversteer) and ENB (for cabin deformation). Please download them and use the settings in the installation readme for the proper experience: (Note: Download version 1.1.3)

Supported: Sports, Coupe, Sedan, Compact, Classic, Muscle, Super (limited support after 2nd Lowriders DLC) SUV, Offroad, Van, Service and Emergency. Only supported motorbikes are the ones that came with the base game.

DLC Support: All DLCs supported.

Known incompatible mods: World of Variety

A big thanks to a63nt-5m1th for always being there to help out when I had a question or screwed something up. This mod would not have been possible without him.
