Hi lads,

I was watching some Goodwood videos and I noticed that some of the cars like the GT40, the 275 and some others have their brake discs glowing when under braking. Nothing severe as modern race cars, but still quite noticeable. I never managed to see my brake discs glow in PnG. Does it happen? Is it something 'coded' in the physics?

Thanks :)

Hi Leon

I know this as nothing to do with PnG, but thought I would chip in with a thought. I know in the F1 Challenge 99-02 for the PC, they had an add-on file for disc glow under braking,for the F1 cars. You just added it into the Season/Data/Vehicles folder and it was a TGA file.

GTR2 does support brake disk glow and indeed the FIA GT cars that come with it feature disk glow.  GT Legends doesn't use it, our cars originate from GTL and so it would be a feature we would have to add to the cars.  I did some experiments with the GT MkII and while I got the discs to glow, the transparency on the wheel textures didn't give a very satisfactory result.  I'm sure the problem is solvable as it works for the FIA GT cars, but I didn't have time to get to the bottom of the problem.

Hopefully one day I will have time to look at it again.
