This is intended as steering back speed does not actually work with the controller stick.

Thank you for the reply Rahkiin :hi:

I don't know how and who decided that but it worked for me. Quite noticeably actually.
Because it especially made tractors act a lot like real life. They are not snappy super cars reacting all your inputs immediately.
For me that is a real loss like camera collision. It shouldn't be removed.
Besides what was the drawback if it has been left there?
People who doesn't feel it work wouldn't just use it.

It is unfortunate whomever signed off on that decision. I play on XBOX and the steering backspeed worked very well and gave a great deal of controle to the semi trucks when traveling over 30mph. It would be greatly appreciated if this feature was reconsidered for a return. It really complimented the other revisions you guys made to how equipment feels while operating. FS19 feels much more realistic in how equipment handles and the steering backspeed feature was part of that overall improvement that myself and RODHA seem to enjoy.

Oh yes it did work. I had mine set to 90% and didn't flip a tractor. because the lower you had it set I keep flipping tractors because the steering would snap back very quick and the tractor would flip and all I was using was the ps4 controller stick. It's just with out this steering back speed adjustment it's harder to drive tractors. I really hope you guys reconsider bringing it back.. and who ever told you it didn't work don't know what they are talking about and doesn't play the game on consoles with a controller *thumbsdown* . I have 245 hours on ravenport and I can tell you that it does work..

Looks like they remove things in every patch and "WON'T FIX" them..
Grass destructions, now this....

To me, it sounds more like a "We have no idea how to keep this feature without breaking something else"....

I'll throw this in the group. We had reports of this not working on gamepads (from the community)

Well if you think that a lower "steering back speed" is making the wheel "snap back very quick" you probably did not understand what this setting is supposed to do. (at least I am understanding it this way. I may be wrong but I don't think so.)

At 100% the wheels go from any turn-degree to 0° at 100% speed (somewhere is a fixed maximum "x-Degree per second" turn rate defined). Also the wheel will "always" return, even when standing still.
At 50% the wheels return to 0° at 50% speed. (So SLOWER than at 100%) (Also the wheel will only return when the vehicle is moving which is the case at any setting lower than 100%)
at 0% the wheels wont return to 0° on their own. The player always has to press a key to return the wheels, even when the vehicle is moving, the wheels won't go back to center.

So you saying "at lower settings you would flip because of the wheel snapping back" kind of makes no sense.
The only reason this could be true if it was bugged - and in this case the removal is even more justified.

This setting is intended for Digital inputs like a keyboard, not for Analog inputs from a Joypad or steering wheel.

For Analog inputs there is the Sensitivity setting (which are only available (at least on PC) when you loaded into the menu, Not into a game/"Farm"!
Even though there should definitely be some more settings like a Player-defined steering speed.

Kind Regards
Stig

I don't have no clue about pc stuff . i'm playing on ps4 and when I had it set to 90% the slower it went back to 0% if you had it set on 50% the faster it went back to 0%. i'm not the only console player that has said this...I messed with the Steering back speed for about 2 to 3 hours to get it where I liked it and that was 90 to 100% because it went back to 0% slower so when your going around a corner and you let your analog stick go back to 0 the tractor was still turning because it was slower coming back to 0%.. now the way it is if your cornering fast and just let the analog stick go back to 0 the steering returns to 0% in a snap or very fast then it's very easy to flip. that's why I miss the steering back speed when we did have it...oh well.. and also it made it a lot smoother cornering having it set to 90% to 100%

Not sure if this feature worked as intended, but removing it noticably affected my ability to control my tractor. Still trying to figure out how to keep from turning into that darn river heading up the hill on Ravenport.

Would not a steering sensitivity setting be better than a steering delay?

We can steer and do not have to tap-tap-tap.

Or both and in addition the dead zone, then everyone would be happy.
