Blinkers and back up warning sound

Post by Riven326 » Sun Aug 23, 2020 5:50 pm

A couple suggestions to improve immersion.

Blinkers: You have to turn them off manually after you make a right or left turn. Why don't they just turn off by themselves after you make the turn? It makes me not even want to use them.

Back up warning sounds: Not enough vehicles have this feature. Tractors, skid steers, large trucks, etc. It may not seem like a big deal, but it improves immersion.

Tractors and skid steers around here don't have a back up sound. Tractors and skid steers turn signals don't turn off on their own after making a turn.

There is a mod that makes the blinkers turn off.

Our Case IH STX325 has the auto shut off turn signals, but that is only part of the luxury cab option. It also has the back up beeper.

I think the blinkers should automatically turn off for the pickup trucks, cars, etc. The back up sound is a nice touch, but it's not essential. The blinkers are just annoying though

We have zero tractors that automatically turn off. My jd 326e skid steer doesn't even have turn signals on it.

I think that's why they don't turn off for the trucks and cars. Giants treats the motor vehicles as if they are tractors. The game engine can't tell the difference.

Our grain truck doesn't either, but it is old.

When I lay down at night to go to sleep I hear beeping, I hope if they add it there’s an option to shut it off
