@rileyroo1997 Join our discord (and message a mod admin on discord when you do so they can give you a role so you can see and post stuffer in the channels) and feel free to ask. The main guys that are really good at making boats Matt Johnson, Craig Montgomery, and Chris Porten, though there are others who know how as well. Discord is where most of the community is rather than the forums these days.
I disagree. First of all you can’t even compare Hydro Thunder with Hydrosim.
IMO it think it would appeal and introduce a fresh new racing sim to a lot of different race enthusiasts.
I grew up in the Tri-Cities and around the hydroplanes. It was something that everyone in that area and from all around the Northwest look forward too every year. And there is a variety of other courses through hydroplane history that could be utilized. Tri-Cities is just one location. And the potential hull DLC throughout history would be amazing. With that said and not to kill a dead horse, this genre of racing gets into people’s blood fast and becomes almost like a new pass time.
It’s NASCAR on water with a completely different racing dynamic that racing enthusiasts would embrace.
Maybe just a pipe dream, but I have a friend that works for a major game developer. He has stated that their development department is always looking for new game ideas.
Respect to the Hydrosim developers in what they have accomplished with this sim.
Upmost respect to this sport. No disrespect intended in this post, just passionate about hydroplane racing and racing in general. Cheers
You can race in VR, but I wouldn't recommend it in a league unless you have a spotter. As for future VR stuff, the new GP boat model has a really well-made cockpit model thanks to Kallen Washburn, so that'll look really nice in VR once its finished.
With water effects, we used to have some splashes on the screen but they never worked in VR and I believe were tied to the old water system. Details like that are probably lower priority than other things, like GP boats and race courses for them.
If it pulls right then just run the boat in an clockwise direction, might help in your turns! LOL j/k, sorry i don't know much about game controllers but it sounds like an calibration setting of some sort like we use for joysticks.
