Hello,

I bought a wheel, and i’m have to learn how to drive all over again.
Now i normally use manual transmission, but switched to automatic, untill i have more control over the wheel, and the gear shifter is not delivered yet.

I would like to be able to use the paddles to force the auto transmission a gear up or down, just like it works in a real car with paddles and a automatic transmission nowadays.
I crash because the car does not shift back whenever i need it too. At these moments “some”’manual control would be nice. When drifting with automatic it gets really bad haha..

Is that perhaps an thing you could implement into the game?

I can’t be the only one that would want this?

i remember in NFS Most Wanted (2005) that was a feature. that being said, it would kind of eliminate the need for an actual manual setting. it would be nice however.

I use automatic and sometimes will want a different gear when doing lower class rivals so it would be a nice option to have (especially as this game has a peculiarity where, if you are stopped by something, it will sometimes take the game a few seconds to decide it needs to be in 1st gear and not the 4th gear it was in)

In Shift 2 Unleashed you could do that. They only problem was that the car would still change gears on its own if the rev drops too low after an upshift or goes too high after a downshift.

That’s exactly what i want, a real life dsg does that too, for instance. If it’s on automatic, you still can use the paddles to shift, but when you don’t, it should do it by itself. Only if you put it in tiptronic/manual mode, you have to shift.

Also, it would be nice to switch between different shifting modes without having to interrupt the game.. Like a real car has too..
Perhaps even only the cars that have it in real life.
I’m asking too much perhaps haha.. But i just love realism and immersion, and it would take the game to the next level, and it really deserves that imo. I just love cruising around and doing nothing, taking in the scenery etc. Even more realism would be amazing, in freeroam, and in events.

Also, raytracing for pc should be able to be enabled with a switch, if you have a beefy setup, instead or in addition to the cubic mapping reflections.

I've occasionally wished for this option, though while I've encountered it in a few games since I think the last time I used it was way back on the SEGA Genesis in Super Monaco GP 2.

Gearing is kind of difficulty here so it's hard to implement.

would love to see a real automatic transmission for cruising , one that changes gear early like real world automatic

Similar thing happens in manual sometimes. You will actually see the gear change, but it will act bogged down, like you are trying to move in way to high of a gear.

I've developed a technique for doing this as I'm in automatic on a keyboard, but notice that the revs sometimes drop and the car is a gear too high (6th or 7th). I keep my finger on the W key, but lower it to give the S key a short, sharp tap to force the car to change down a gear. But a means for changing down a gear in automatic for such situations without braking at the same time would be very useful in these situations.

Curiously, in FH4 you can still change gears when the game is set to manual with clutch without using the clutch – at least on a keyboard.
