Placebo Effect /pləˈsēbō ēˈfekt/ noun - The idea that the brain can convince the body a fake treatment is the real thing—the so-called placebo effect
i have started this thread to discuss something that i as well as others have noticed ever since the release of the original game. a few have thought the same as me, even before i had asked them about this subject. i do not know if there really is something to this or not, but let us see. shall we?
there is what seems to be a "thing" with the camera i have talked about with various people here and there. so far most have agreed, but are still skeptical like me.
now there are times where i have noticed when climbing a hill or obstacle that sometimes it just "feels" (if that makes sense) that the vehicle is on the verge of cresting over the top, but sits there spinning away, sitting there not going anywhere. for what it is worth, 0% traction, well enough to hold the vehicle in its position, but not make progress.
when in the situation i described above, you turn the camera to look backwards, towards the vehicle ...
Does turning the camera (making it in front of the vehicle) seem to have some kind of weight and help give better traction, aiding the vehicle to start moving and cresting the hill or obstacle?
it is not limited to just those situations, but any similar situations that involve "on the verge of traction" that seem to "tip the weight" and we are talking what seems to be very little weight, but also seems enough to have an effect.
now it is not something that happens all the time everytime and others i have talked to about this feel the same, but it happens often enough i feel to question.
i invite all to give this little experiment/question the test. opinions, discussions, debates, finger pointing, ridicule and laughs welcome. i only ask when testing this to take your time, take it serious and be objective. other than that please keep the discussions civil if something happens to get heated.... after all this is still the internet you know. lol
