Boat Update

Posted by Atashi at 2015.11.25 16.50 in News

The Formula Wai racing boats have been updated today.

The most notable change is that the boats are no longer destroyed, when their health reaches zero!

As before, the engine does blow up, throwing a couple pistons out, and the back of the propeller cage / rudders still falls off leaving debris in the water.

What’s different is the boat remains drivable! Just… slower. You can get back to the pit lane where the boat is fully repaired, same as before!

A damaged FW-2 limps to the pit lane for repairs.

The ‘destroyed’ boat is slow enough that drivers will have a strong incentive to pit before catastrophe, but the difference is now they are still in the race – no more DNFs!

(Technically you can still DNF if you quit the race.)

The other change is in Manoever mode, the lower rudder has returned. It was there in the original FW-1 boats, but due to script constraints was removed with the early FW-2 versions.

Finally, there is an updated HUD to go with the updated boats. No new features, but it’s been tweaked to work with the newly-unkillable boats.
