Farming Simulator 2019: Smoother steering with the key board and more...
Version 1.1 on ModHub is the most recent version. (https://www.farming-simulator.com/mods.php?title=fs2019&filter=most&page=63).
Please be aware you're using a developer version, which may and will contain errors, bugs, mistakes and unfinished code.
You have been warned.
If you're still ok with this, please remember to post possible issues that you find in the developer version. That's the only way we can find sources of error and fix them. Be as specific as possible:
From today on I will close all new issues without the above information!
It seems that many players have problems with thier inpubBindings. Just look at issues #470, #468, # 464, ... I think this is a general problem in the handling of input bindings in FS19. Please try to delete your inputBinding.xml.
The vehicles have now much more inertia. That should make gear changes easier as the vehicle looses less speed during gear shifts. That is why I increased the time to shift gears. The increased inertia seems to work very well with REA mod. The main problem of spinning wheels was in the past that the wheel speed started to oscilate. This got better with the increased inertia and the vehicle is not able to reach 100% motor load even with 20% wheel slip.

I added several settings for players with a gear shifter. These are the different options: * "6G, 1R, LH" - 6 gears, 1 reverse gear, one button to swtich between low and high range * "6G, Shuttle, LH" - 6 gears, one button to change driving direction, one button to swtich between low and high range * "6G, D/R, LH" - for 8+1 shifters: 6 gears, gear 7 switches to forward, gear 8 switches to backward, one button to swtich between low and high range * "6G, R+/-, 1R" - for 8+1 shifters: 6 gears, gear 7 increases the range, gear 8 lowers the range, gear 9 switches into the single reverse gear * "6G, R+/-, Shuttle" - for 8+1 shifters: 6 gears, gear 7 increases the range, gear 8 lowers the range, gear 9 toggles the driving direction * "8G, 1R, LH" - for 8+1 shifters: 8 gears, 1 reverse gear, one button to swtich between low and high range * "8G, Shuttle, LH" - for 8+1 shifters: 8 gears, one button to change driving direction, one button to swtich between low and high range * "4G, R+/-, 1R"- gears 1 to 4 change the highes 4 gears, gear 5 and 6 increase/decrease the range, gear 7 switches to reverse gear * "4G, R+/-, Shuttle" - gears 1 to 4 change the highes 4 gears, gear 5 and 6 increase/decrease the range, gear 7 toggles the driving direction * "4G, R+/-, D/R" - for 8+1 shifters: gears 1 to 4 change the highes 4 gears, gear 5 and 6 increase/decrease the range, gear 7 switches to forward, gear 8 switches to backward * "D/R , G+/-, R+/-" - gear 1 swtiches to forward, gear 2 switches to backward, vehicle is in neutral in neither 1 nor 2 are pressed, gears 3 and 4 change the gear, gears 5 and 6 change the range
VCA can now calculate the distance and offset of snap direction steering. If you want to refresh these values, then please enter 0 for distance in the VCA settings UI.
I renamed the configuration file in modSettings folder to just "config.xml". Additionally, there is a new file "transmissions.xml". Here you can add your own transmissions. I propose to use the second transmission as template. Gears support automatic shifting. but ranges have to be shifted manually.
It is not possible to add transmission via "transmission.xml" file. The modsSettings will be save in the savegame folder of the dedicated server. You need to logon as admin if you want to change global settings.
Please check section status why I renamed the mod. Please use VCA as abbreviation.
You will have to choose the new mod after replacing it in the mods folder. But settings in old save games are still read.
Although I have a steering wheel, but almost always play with the keyboard. On winding roads, I am again and again landed in the ditch in front of nights or power poles.
This script varies the steering speed depending on the speed you are driving, and it rotates the camera to match the steering angle and direction. Shift-Left limits throttle, cruise control and maximum rounds per minute to 75%. With Shift-right and the cursor keys you can peek in the corresponding direction. If you press Ctrl left together with W then the driving direction snaps to fixed directions. Additionally, there is a simple gear box. It was never planned to make a super realistic gearbox. The following transmisions are available: * off: the standard gearbox without customization * IVT: Still the standard gearbox but with little adjustments to the allowed RPM range. More to come... * 4X4: An old fashioned transmissoin with 4 gears in 4 groups and shuttle control. Shifting gears takes time and you might lose momentum. * 4PS: The same transmissoin as above but with power shift for the gears * 2X6: Two groups with 6 gears. This transmission is useful for G27/G29 gear shifters. There is a low and a high range. The 6 gears in each range do not overlap with the 6 gears in the other range * FPS: Full Power Shift: The transmission has 12 gears and shifts without interuption. * 6PS: 6 gears with power shift: This transmission has 6 gears. Each gear can be reduced by about 80%
All functions are switchable with the following default key combinations: * Ctrl Left + C: Settings * Ctrl Left + W: Snap Angle (continue) * Alt Left + W: Snap Angle (reset) * Shift Left: Throttle limiter / reduced cruise control speed * Shift Right + Cursor: look forward, backwards, left right * Space: Change direction (aka shuttle control) * Please check the keys for shifting. G27/G29 gear shifters are supported. * The 7th gear of the gear shifter is special. If you use action binding ksmShifter7 please make sure that shuttle control is enabled. This action binding will swtich into 1st reverse gear. * Best transmission in combination with a gear shifter are 2X6, FPS and 6PS.
