You know in Mudrunner how say you can load up two trucks, winch them together, and haul two loads of lumber at one time to the mill. With multiple reports confirming vehicle recovery, I for now am going to assume you can still use the winch trick to pull double loads in Mudrunner 2, I might be wrong, maybe they'll remove it, but for now I'm going to assume it'll stay in.
But if this winch tactic does remain, can they fix the ai to follow your instructions?
Like I was just playing Mudrunner on Downhill map, I had a loaded C-255 and was hauling a C-375 behind me. Going down the trail my 255 was lock in 1st gear, but behind me it felt like the ai was using auto. The ai would go fast enough to be pushing me, up shift, shall out and cause my truck to jerk and slow down. I've had this happen on highways to and the jerking can get so rough at highway speeds it can actually cause damage to the trucks.
I don't see how hard it is to program ai to basically follow the leader. If the player is using manual first, just have the ai use manual first.
I assume this wasn't as much of a issue in Spintires as from what I've heard that game has a automatic transmission that actually downshifts properly. But in Mudrunner this can actually get rather annoying sometimes.
What do you guys think of this issue?
