Hopefully. This ruined online play for me this beta :(

I've seen a few things in the daily dev about fixing connection lag, hopefully this has already been fixed, or are you saying the latest GPB beta now suffers with it?

Yea was hoping the same as you with the daily dev posts and overall in GPB the online is smoother and more stable. But yes I've a feeling that the same vertical problem might now be in GPB but obviously less apparent as there's no jumps. Hopefully i'm wrong and it was just individual player lag that caused a bouncing bike to do some very strange stuff but thought i'd add to what you've already reported in case it's been missed.

Not a question but the latest bit of dev news is great to see.. something a lot of us have wanted to see for a long time. Cant wait to see how it works!

Then an actual question:

In the bike cfg there are some values for rebound and compression damping. I found by experimenting that they had a great influence on the bouncing, but it was purely guesswork.

Where did you get the values you use and what do they actually mean?

Unfortunately it's very very difficult to find any data from real dampers, especially at high speeds.
The values currently used are based on the little available data, critical damping calculations and trial and error.
If you found better values, please share them.

Piboso: I am at my parents place and have access to my YZ125. Any measurement request considering "standard" tools are available? I could probably give you getting suspension travel with weight on handle bars easily but not sure that it is interesting.

Have you also tried to contact after market suspension manufacturers? They most likely have damping curves for clients.

Well......what unit of measurement is the value based on?

Damping data is in N/m/s.

Even though I won't be able to play beta 7 for a while.. I'm still hyped for the release. Would love to see as much screenshots and videos as everyone can make. I'll continue to work on content myself, so expect something from me in the next few months!

What are your plans after beta 7 Pibs? Will you focus on one of your other games for the first few months? Keep working on the physics? Netcode maybe? :)
