IOperateIt [pre-alpha/still testing!]

Drive vehicles around your very own city!

A driving vehicle simulator, in the vein of the U-drive-it mode of Simcity 4 and Streets of Simcity. The mod lets you operate any vehicle currently driving around the city, or spawn any vehicle on a road segment with 3 view angles:

Far view
Follow up
First person

What's new!

Fixes for 1.4.0 patch
Parked Vehicle collision detection
Improved vehicle rotation


To enter driving mode, (optionally) select a vehicle from the "Vehicle Selector" panel, click on the "Spawn vehicle" button, and click on a road segment.
Alternatively, clicking on the "Drive This Vehicle" button in the vehicle info panel will spawn a copy of the vehicle in the same spot.

Once in driving mode, controls are:

Arrow keys: Control the vehicle
F2: Exit driving mode
F3: Switch viewing mode
F5: Toggle lights

Upcoming Features

Configurable control forces
Configurable control keys
Vehicle lights
More documentation
Vehicle driving audio
Random Missions
Road collision detection


This is a "Just testing!" version, and has a number of limitations. Most significantly, with the current version, there is no physics interaction with road segments, which means things like non land vehicle behaviour, and the rotation of the vehicle aren't available yet. Enabling physics for road segments will likely detouring/overriding the road rendering functionality to include enabling physics, which might take some time. Additionally, the close-up view might not work correctly for all vehicles, paticuarly non-car vehicles( boats, planes, etc ).

Guys on macs you have to change your settings, currently if you press fn along with the keys on top they should work like f1-f12. If you don't want to press fn, you can always just change it in system preferences. It's right under keyboard, the last option, Use F1, F2 keys as standard function keys.

Hello, I'd like to donate/pay some money to you if you could make this mod running for Mac. I really love the concept. But I believe I speak for more Mac users that we can't get out of driving mode and key preferences F1 - F9 don't work.
I would really like to support you to support this mod for further updates. I'm not talking about thousands of dollars but something that would motivate you?
Thanks take care

Too bad you couldn't probably do controller support.
Careful illegal street racers from EA doesn't infiltrate your streets.
