MR's On-board Diagnostics GUI

Description
The dashboard designed for vehicle makers!
Vehicle makers will love seeing the actual operating values while trying their vehicle scripts!
It displays live values for prop_vehicle_jeep and prop_vehicle_airboat and Simfphys vehicles, with no kind of smoothing. It also works when sitting on a parented passenger seat.
Uh yeah, finally some good OBD software for Garry's Mod!

Features of the OSD
From top to bottom and left to right, you can see:
  • The Workshop button
  • The settings button
  • The close button
  • The RPM value with a background becoming red when over-revving
  • An analog rev-meter with shifting markers
  • The gear number
  • The throttle amount
  • The remaining boost duration
  • The speed
  • The suspension poseparameter values
  • The steer angle

Console commands & variables
Clientside commands:
  • gearbox_tester_mr_settings
Clientside variables:
  • gearbox_tester_mr_auto
  • gearbox_tester_mr_speed
  • gearbox_tester_mr_position

Remarks
  • If "engine""autotransmission" is 0 then the gear stays 1. And as this dashboard is designed for vehicle makers, the RPM remains 0 as well according to the reported value (I do not calculate it with a formula of my own).
  • The support for simfphys vehicles is limited because there is less available information through its API.
  • The dashboard is a draggable OSD that you can move all around the screen, and it will stay in place!
  • The title bar is hidden unless the mouse cursor is visible.
  • The addon calls the hook GM:HUDShouldDraw( "gearbox_tester_mr" ) so you can programmatically hide the OSD.

Awesome mod man

Non, cela ne fait pas partie des caractéristiques par défaut et donc je n'ai pas ajouté ces informations. Il en va de même pour le niveau de carburant.

Well, it's a nice suggestion but I'm sorry because it will cost a long time and I'm not very much into flying vehicles. Thanks for proposing!

thats a silly thought but; is it possible to make something similar for WAC/LFS?
Michel CRÉMIER [GiletJaune]  [author] Sep 15, 2019 @ 4:56am 
Added support for simfphys vehicles!
Michel CRÉMIER [GiletJaune]  [author] Sep 14, 2019 @ 3:56am 
Yes I am thinking about it. I may decide to add simfphys support. :-P

I think a cool idea would be if it worked for simfphys, just an idea!
