It's amazing how far this has come. My guess is that it's still to hard for me to build anything in this but it looks great. Keep up the good work guys!

Thank you!  We’re proud of it, but we still have a looong way to go before it is ready for commercial release.  In the meantime it is crazy cool to see people getting excited about it!

Phew!

Thanks for that kix!

From here on out, the most active discussions will be on the Official RR2 Discord Server.  I'm still planning to post occasionally here, but if you want the latest scoop head on over to the Discord.  All the cool kids (and older people too!) are doing it!

Hey yall!

Time for a minor progress reveal, an addition to the game that is welcome.

Connecting Batteries in Series and Parallel has been added.
What does this do? If you connect multiple batteries in series, the voltage of the motors will rise (sum of the voltages of the connected batteries)
Here is an example of an A40-300 connected to 2 batteries in series, running at 96.2V (48.1V+48.1V)

If you connect multiple batteries into parallel, the voltage of the motors will be same.Here is an example of an A28-400 running with 2 batteries connected in parallel, running at 37V

This can be tested on the bleeding edge build right away, but it will be released in a stable build too.

Developer’s comment:

Overvolting a motor rated for 24 volts all the way to 96 volts is extremely dangerous and not recommended!  Even though it might be okay in the game (for now), please try to keep the AmpFlows to 48 volts or below.  A lot of competitors have learned the hard way that AmpFlows can fry themselves when run this high.

That is true indeed. I was just showing what can be done

I’m going to limit this when I get a chance.  We don’t have a system in place for that yet though.  Maybe if you go above 48 volts the motor melts immediately...

Tbh, i would keep it as is, as atm, they are kinda saving the flippers. More voltage/more torque for the motor. Atleast keep it till the pneumatics get added

True.  I think if you could go to 96 volts on a motor this size you might see a lot fewer pneumatic systems IRL. Motors are just easier.

They truly are. We just need to figure out the jankines when on gearing higher than 10:0.1
