    Anyone have any good video tutorials for mouse-aimed turrets? I'm a bit disjointed with my efforts to use numpad and wheel powered methods.
    I posted an E2 (with comments explaining how it works) a few pages back.

    Here's a couple of tanks I've built over the past couple of weeks. First a Panzer II, second a WWII German looking tank of my own design.

    Anyone else have issues with linking two engines to a single gearbox? Every time I do I seem to get a massive hp drop. One engine basically drags the other along.

    sure your not overwhelming the gearbox?. i have no problems using two engines with one gearbox just gotta make sure it can handle the torque

    Just use stock gear settings on a 6-speed transaxle, but change the final drive from 0.5 to 0.25 or so. Couple with an engine between the 2.2l Inline 6 and the 5.7l V8, and you'll be hitting 90mph in no time, though I think those small wheels can only get to around 65 or so.

    Anyways, I can promise that the above works, you just need to know how to work the clutch right so you can get the engine into its powerband before exposing it to the rest of the drivetrain.

    I usually either run out of power or encounter insane wheelspin at ~35-40MPH. So far my ACF speed record is 50 using a 9L V12, fully custom gears, 7-speeds, and 4WD. Any faster than that and it just bogs down, remove the 4WD and it just spins the wheels hopelessly through all seven gears.

    Edited:

    sure your not overwhelming the gearbox?. i have no problems using two engines with one gearbox just gotta make sure it can handle the torque
    I've never had that problem, but sometimes I think the autoclutch gets confused. I'll use two 11l radials on a Large gearbox most of the time when I use two engines on one. Usually one engine pulls just fine 24/7, but the other engine will occasionally either forget to rev at all or will rev like mad as if the clutch was in. Usually kicking the clutch fixes it.

    Okay, so I'm working on some sort of small biplane right now, and I'm having some trouble. I have high aspect ratio blades on my propeller (platex125), with fin set to 200, and I'm not getting very much thrust at all; it is enough to move the plane forward, but not very fast. I'm also having problems with counter torque from the propeller trying to spin the rest of the plane in the opposite direction. How can I fix these problems?

    Here's an image for reference.

    Also, in case it is relevant, that is a 24L radial going through a medium diff with -0.15 for the main gear and 1 for the final. Also, the propeller model is just for looks, I don't have it trying to do anything.

    Set each blade to around 10kg, and the propeller base to 150kg-200kg. Fin efficiency should be 99999/tool maximum. There's really no way effective way to counter torque other than applyMagic or an extra propeller

    Originally intended to be armed with ammocrate bombs, but measures seem to have been taken against such weapons, not that they worked anyway. New plan is to use a 50mm AL on a gimbal to snipe tanks

    Most his contraptions look like they are stuck in 2008. I like the 'strafing mode' (the mouse one) controls on that one though.

    we need higher horsepower engines. Like the largest engine caps out at what, 760hp? That's like mid-cold-war medium tank engine, and the model is massive. We need engines that put out twice that.

    Somehow for me they are working fine lol

    4 engines from 0 to 60 Km/h 7 seconds (with armors and stuff)
    2 ----//---- 13 seconds
    1 ----//---- more than 30 seconds.

    Just wanted to say I will not be able to make any new videos for a while in the time before I
    reformat my computer. My fraps installer have by some means become unable to install fraps
    at all and so I'm unable to record anything.

    My plans for when I reformat are a suspension tut, some contraptions and other stuff.

    ACF has a mobility list, its a easy file to edit, if you want you can add the engines you want to it. I agree ACF needs much more capable engines than the current engines which are better off being used as stovetops....but with the right gearing they work kinda well depending on the engine. 7 Liter V12 is probably the best motor in ACF and the 4.6L V12, 3.7L I4, 23L V12, and the 9.2L V12 diesel are probably the best of the engines if you have an unedited mobility list.
