      Keep in mind it is the original R8 sound from the TDU2 team, but with a Realistic Start-up added.
      If a R8 sound mod owner wishes to combine the start-up with his/her sound send me a PM :)

      real 135 physik with 7 gears 6 gears version is on still working

      2012 was an interesting year.  Some wondered if it would be the last year, and of course a movie had to develop that plotline further.  Perhaps worse than that, the official online servers for Test Drive Unlimited 1 were shut down, which made us all feel very sad.

       Not long later we had the release of the first open world Forza title for XBOX 360 which took us to a version of Colorado which strangely lacked Pikes Peak. It was a good game, and the start of a good series to fill in the void left by TDU, but it just wasn't the same. At least it still provided a few laughs.

      But that wasn't all.  In March of 2012 we were treated to a new flight 'simulator' from Microsoft, which conveniently for us, featured Hawaii of all places.  It was a freemium game with DLC planes, locations and challenges.  A number of us do like to fly on PC on occasion.

      If you don't count the re-release of a 64-bit version of Flight Simulator X Acceleration on Steam in 2014, then the 2012 release of Microsoft Flight was our last flying update from Microsoft in 7 years.  So imagine our delight when Microsoft surprises us with a gorgeous trailer showing us a new version of the simulator due to land (pun intended) sometime in 2020.
      Take a look for yourself here:
       
      The trailer doesn't tell us a great deal of details about the upcoming sim, but the amazing detail of the world (without having to purchase and install a hundred add-ons) in stunning 4K definitely has our attention here at TurboDuck.  We'll be sure to make a beeline for O'ahu as soon as we can.
      Here's what we can deduce from the trailer and it's description:
      * Available on Xbox and Windows PC (so it should attract casual fliers)
      * Powered by satellite data and MS Azure AI Cloud computing
      * Amazing volumetric clouds which cast realistic shadows on the ground
      * SNOW
      * Bodies of water are not a singular colour, and cities have High Def textures out of the box
      * FOG
      * Delicious reflections on aircraft and detailed airport vehicle and building textures with shadows
      * A variety of light and stunt aircraft as well as jumbo jets, including the cover-plane from Microsoft Flight from Icon
      * Beautiful sunsets accompany expected time-of-day and weather settings
      * High-detailed 3D cockpits with the ability to turn your head, bank your aircraft and admire the view below
      * Many real-world scenic attractions to visit including what appears to be New York, Dubai, Alcatraz, Egypt, San Francisco, along with coral reefs, mountains, canyons, craters, stadiums, and more
      * Lighting and rain effects
      * Hundreds of vehicles on the roads and in the carparks below
      * Wildlife including flamingos, elephants, and giraffes
      * Multiplayer
      * Challenging Alpine landing strips

      Hello again, this is Ztryka and I present to you my next mod for Test Drive Unlimited:
      The Immersive Radio Stations & Driving Games Soundtrack (DGST) Music Mod Pack introduces new radio stations based on real life O’ahu, Hawaii stations, including station IDs, call signs and station names, that plays along with songs based on other driving and racing games aside from TDU (excludes one station which more than half of the songs are based on real life top hit songs list of the decades). The idea of the mod is to bring the real life radio stations to Test Drive Unlimited gameplay and create an immersion of reality while driving around the island of O’ahu.
      Guide to Install the Music Mod for TDU:
      1. Extract the files from the Zip file.
      2. Open Test Drive Unlimited, then copy the folder "Euro".
      3. Paste the folder to C : > (Your folder location of) Test Drive Unlimited (For example, in my case C : > Games > Test Drive Unlimited)
      4. Press Yes if asked to replace the files. (BACKUP YOUR FILES BEFORE DOING THIS!!!)
      5. Look into "For User Radio:" instructions below.
      For User Radio:
      6. Go to Test Drive Unlimited > Euro > Radio.
      7. Cut the folders "User Radio 1" to "User Radio 4".
      8. Paste the folders to Documents > Test Drive Unlimited > savegame > "Your Profile Name" (in my case, ZtrykaTDU, for example) > Radio (create the folder of the same name if there is none)
      9. Play TDU, Continue Game, Exit House and Enjoy!

      The reason I'm wondering about this is that it seams there is already a make shift clutch system in the game. If your stopped, put the car into gear without the proper revs, it hesitates and struggles to take off. This shows the developers were already thinking of this. Also, when changing gears in cars that are truly manual transmissions (cars that don't have semi-auto paddles) I've noticed that letting off the throttle during the change, then reapplying it exactly when the shift is complete makes much smoother shifts. This shows up in some cars more then others. Try this with the RUF RTurbo. If you leave the throttle down during the change, the revs often blip and the car acts kinda strange. If you do the shift as you would in an actual car, the change is much smoother. Once again, I don't take this as a coincidence.
       
      I love Test Drive because it's a DRIVING SIMULATOR to me, and I think it needs to move towards being as realistic as possible. Racing is one thing, but driving around the island carelessly is what I really enjoy!
       
      There needs to be a clutch option in my opinion. I don't expect a separate clutch button, but improving and increasing the realism I mentioned about would be fantastic.
       
      -If you don't got the revs to get the car moving, stall the car.
       
      -Make a manual tran car shift in a way that requires proper throttle application
       
      -Downshifting could be improved by not automatically blipping the throttle on downshifts. More driver input on downshifts would be awesome.
       
      People that play Driving/Racing games are passionate about cars. Especially the people who play TDU. If you noticed what I was speaking about in the beginning or you like the ideas, I'd love to hear your feed back.
       
      -Thanks :twisted:clu
