FixedFixed a bug where boats would appear to be sinking in replays and sometimes on the server. Fixed a bug where the wrong value was being used from Crest water height queries, so the physics was using a horizontal displacement instead of the vertical height from the waves.
UpdatedRe-enabled some larger waves with higher wind speed
AddedAdded a grid overlay that can be toggled on the water to assist race officials. The overlay can be re-aligned by ctrl+clicking on 2 buoys and moved by shift+left click drag. Grid shows 30ft, 15ft, and 1ft increments.
Bundle UpdatesAll of the course bundles had to be updated to support the grid functionality.
The v0.8.0.0 beta is finally here with Grand Prix Hydroplanes. Big thanks to Kallen Washburn for making the 3D models and Matt Johnson for recreating some awesome paintjobs.
Known issues Various bugs with driver model doing weird things in certain situations. Bug with boats vibrating in replays v0.8.0.0-b6
Note: There may be physics changes to Unlimited / GP boats before final release.
Note: VR might be broken. Unity changed the entire VR API. I updated the code to work, but haven't really tested it.
FixedReverted Input System version to fix some issues people were having mapping controls. Fixed an issue with cloud textures in the sky being pixelated. Fixed some issues with course select menu. Fixed water splashes not working in MainMenu.
Bundle UpdatesFixed a buoy rope issue at Madison. Updated GP physics to drive a little better and make lanes more even. Reset some changes on the Unlimiteds, note the Unlimiteds are currently way too fast and will be changed. v0.8.0.0-b5
FixedFixed bug where you couldn't login as admin on dedicated server to change race settings. v0.8.0.0-b4
UpdatedNow using bundle system to create separate course and boat bundles. This allows me to separate things into multiple repositories which alleviates some disk space issues. This also allows me to make updates and add boats/courses without having to make a new game download. The game will auto-update on startup. Added ability to change GP boat configuration from the main menu, this allows for making a new boat configuration and saving to file, or just temporarily overriding the configuration. Added "dock ropes" to prevent boats from floating away on courses with flow-maps. These auto-release after the engine starts. Re-designed the course select menu when clicking Host. Added ability to change Field of View for on-board cameras in Graphics Settings. Changed propeller simulation to use a mesh that more closely resembles a propeller, which required tweaking all the physics again. Unlimited physics still needs some more tinkering. Added Content GUI, this is mainly for debugging purposes. Note: Enabling dev bundles will only work for members of the HydroSim dev team on discord. Added support for engine washdowns, this can be disabled on the server. Will need some tinkering as I haven't been able to test/adjust it yet.
FixedFixed some mirrored texture mapping issues with some of the GP boat canards. Fixed issue with fin/prop not taking flow-map forces into account. Fixed some issues with audio pitch/volume curves. v0.8.0.0-b3
UpdatedBig thanks to Kallen there are many more part options for the GP boat. (See very bottom of t his post for full list of options that can be put in the Team.xml file) Added GP-15 Happy Go Lucky (thanks Matt!)
FixedFixed buoys at Guntersville Fixed trees at Copi Hollow
UpdatedDoubled the viewable area in the mirrors. Reduced wake amplitude for GP boats.
FixedFoam bugs at Miami. Issues with buoy anchors / ropes at a few race courses. Fixed some rendering issues in the mirrors. Trailer textures can now be painted for GP teams. v0.8.0.0-b1
AddedHenderson GP hydroplane model with several configurable parts (more cowlings coming soon). The parts to use are specified in the team.xml file. (Template for painting GP boats is on the Google Drive). Course Layouts. Most of the Unlimited courses now have a separate GP course layout that can be selected in the Rules section of the admin panel.
ab61ed39-c3f5-4965-8ff1-e260186341fe-image.png Rear-view mirrors (still need work) Full cockpit with Animated driver (in the GP boat). Added water flow maps to several of the race courses. This will cause the boat float downstream at courses on rivers. Cleaned up the boat texture loading code. Added ability to specify emissive maps. Updated Detroit underwater terrain (Thanks to Kym) and added trees.
