I am finishing a very basic 2D racing game with top-down perspective. I can't get the appropriate formulas to make the movement of the cars fun and addictive... Do you have tips on how to achieve that arcade feeling a lot of games have? Do you know of any guide/tutorial on this topic?
Right now, these are the formulas I am using:
// (speed changes linearly according to the user input) direction += turnAmount.Value; Vector3 pos = Position + new Vector3(speed.Value * (float)Math.Cos(direction), 0, -speed.Value * (float)Math.Sin(direction));
I have tested other, more complex options but this is the best I have got so far...
