The game is already beautiful, I love how it looks. From the tracks to the vehicles, everything is well thought and crafted. But as always, things can be improved.
I get the feeling that the vehicle designers wanted to transmit that we are taming a powerful giant metal beast machine, at least I feel like i'm in command of a powerful car. However, the rear turbine exhausts feel idle most of the time, it has no animation. Even when I use the boost I hear a very quiet sound and watch my speed increase, but that's all. I don't see any visual indication that i'm boosting. It would be a lot more cool and immersive to have that exhaust fire to be ataptive to the vehicle state, like a fighter jet turbine. when stopped or not accelerating, no rear turbine fire. when accelerating, fire goes out normally. when boosting, fire extends a bit or becomes more bright, when using the speedup powerup, same animation as the one that is already present.
Why this would be good? In the current state, it feels like it's exclusively a cosmetic accessory to improve the car visually, but feels like it has no function at all, it's a bit 'meh'. Improving the animations of the rear engine fire to give a feeling like it is a turbine adding acceleration to the main engines would give more immersion, adding to the feeling that we are on a very high speed and that the car is very powerful.
In addition, when I'm on a race and I land on the ground, certainly there is impact between the floor and the vehicle side that is facing the ground. it would be very cool and a nice detail to see the car releasing sparks, and even more if it becomes scratched by that contact, losing paint on the surfaces that come in contact with the enviroment.
Thanks for reading, I hope that this could be taken into consideration by the team. You guys are all making an amazing job and this is already one of my favourite games on Steam. Keep up the good work!
