The collision detection part is very awkward. But other physics attributes seem decent or playable.
Vehicle dynamics are horrible though. Currently it seems acceleration/deceleration is based on some sort of linear speed/time increase. At least, it very much looks like that.
To make the game more realistic it should at least have dynamic torque curves and various gear ratios to mimick transmissions.
Suspensions don't seem to react on lateral forces. There are no tyre dynamics.
At the moment it just seems that the height of the speed linearly increase turning radius.
An easy fix for the collision detection would probably be a higher frequency of collision checks.

Hello OP hope you don't mind me using your thread to post about a feature request ticket at CIT concerning vehicles.
I am requesting a crawl speed that can be reached by a key to essentially shift gears into low so that tactical vehicles could then creep along at infantry walk speed. I realize you can tap "q" but try that in a Warrior or Bradley... then try it down hill. It becomes an exercise in frustration trying to keep pace with human players when moving as a mechanized infantry team. I think the normal "q" speed/turbo and just normal forward speed should remain, but give us (shift 4) to shift into low, like engaging a PTO. There should be an initial jerk as it kicks in, then a smooth slow (maybe high RPM) movement and turns.
RL Example You couldn't pay me to walk in front of a vehicle in Arma that way. He never gains on the guy walking.
Anyway, here is the LINK to the ticket. If you agree, go vote it up.
Here is a nifty solution tha Will Solv ALL Problems for you :Make the Dashboard instruments as open Plug-ins that can modifiable on the fly by anyone and in a format that corresponds with this:https:/https://picasaweb.google.com/1125206...89764768935394/picasaweb.google.com/112520604661993750465/SenastOverforda04#5741189764768935394
