Wheel Arches And Flares -Dev Blog #40
We wanted to share two new parts which we will be adding to Techblox.
The first is the Wheel Arch. This is placed around the wheel to create a nice smooth enclosure.
The second part we are adding are flares. These can be attached to the side of the arch and will come in different shapes and sizes.
Here’s a video which shows the placement of both the wheel arch and the flares including material painting
Previously, we’ve had some players ask if scaling will be possible for wheels. We made the decision to not scale the wheel dimensions and there are some very good reasons why we’ve done this:
- We plan to give you a ton of different wheels to unlock.
- Wheel arches will be designed with the shape of the wheels in mind. This means that we can create some great wheel arches that fit perfectly around a wheel. We’ll be creating more wheel arches over time to give you greater customization options.
- Wheels of varying size will have visual details that will suit their size. This isn’t so easy if they are being scaled by the player. If all scales between Wheel Arches and wheels match, we believe this will look more realistic
- Alongside wheel arches, flares and other details can be made to accompany the wheel sizes to make everything fit more easily.
- Data like mass, grip etc can be balanced much more easily.
