PostSubject: Short driver?   24.11.11 16:01

been using the 4.2 Jag in TC65 and noticed in replays that the driver appears either to be a dwarf or a child,he can hardly see over the dash! Shocked
Was wondering if there was anyway I can move him further up,to a more realistic seating position??
At least give him a chance to see where he's going poor chap Laughing

Sorry to hear your driver is Vertically challenged lol!

I think this will help him-



Sorry, could not resist that.. Twisted Evil

This is what you need to put in .car file=
ExternalDriverPosition=(-0.39, -0.120, -0.065)

Hi Rick!
Jag MK II is one of my "best car" in GTL, I like them very much because is a classic british car, but, since I bought GTL few years ago, I don't like this head position in external view.
I did not know that was possible to change this as you teached us today!
I appreciate your help very much!
Now i have head's pilot in it's right place, and I've changed all my .car file!
Thanks for that, old friend!
Cheers! cheers

In the .car file, look for this line:

ExternalDriverPosition=(0.366, -0.15, 0.15)

The first number (0.366) moves the driver left or right. Lower the number to move right.
The second number (-0.15) moves the driver up or down. Lower the number to mov edown.
The third number (0.15) moves the driver forward or backward. Lower the number to move forward.

Keep in mind that if you move the driver, he will no longer be aligned with his seat. You can adjust the seat in 3dsimed.

I appreciate Splintert help, but I used the 3 Rickoshea's numbers, with helmets type 40 (see its genstring position number in .cas file).
It looks amazing, for my taste, just in the perfect place it might be!! So Nick, you can use the same middle number, with any helmet you choose! Try it and tell me!
Regards!

It's quite strange as the original GTL Jag has this line=

ExternalDriverPosition=(-0.373, -0.160, -0.130)

Yet in the GTL-GTR2 mod from SCCA1981 the very same Jag number 850 has this=

ExternalDriverPosition=(-0.39, -0.120, -0.065)

Maybe one of the GTL designers had a thing for short people????
