~Are you a stubborn 'murrican?
~Are you tired of looking at the little yellow numbers on the default speedometer to tell how fast you are going?
Have no fear, the 'US customary system' speedometer is here!
Gone are the days of having to strain your eyes to see those tiny numbers. You could potentially save hundreds in eye doctor and chiropractor visits just by using this mod!*
This is just a simple mod of the default speedometer to indicate Miles Per Hour rather than Kilometers Per Hour. It is broken up into divisions of 5mph and measures up to 90mph before the needle is set to stop.
I whipped this up really quickly this morning, so it is not perfect, the measurements for 5mph-35-mph are about 1.5mph above what they should indicate. I may fix it in the future. Otherwise it is very accurate.
Just plop speedo.dds into textures.zip (found in the resources folder of your RoR directory).
Here is a config file for the MicrosoftÃ‚Â® Sidewinder USB steeringwheel.
I have made this config because some people have problems with setting axes.
You can simply add him in the configurator.
How to install:
1) Open the configurator
2) Click on "controls"
3) Click on "import keymap"
4) Select the .map file (unzip the archive first)
Now you have a fully working MicrosoftÃ‚Â® steeringwheel
1) Extract the .map file out of the .zip
2) Go to your documents folder and go to the "Rigs of Rods 0.38" folder.
3) Then click on "config" and replace the .map with the one out of my .zip (backup first)
this is a tacho and a speedo that i made some changer from the tunning speedo,however,it's some defective,but nice,in .dds format.
unpack to rigs of rods x.xxdata
credits go to me and the original maker of "speedo_2" and me for some changes.

0.35: Copy files into your data folder DO NOT PUT THEM IN PACKS OR data/trucks if you want you can backup the files by just finding the ones in the data folder.
0.36: Put files into resouces/textures.
A quick tachometer hack I did. It simply changes the values on it, so it's more realistic.
Technical Stuff: It's a DXT1 texture, so it's not as high quality as it should be. I wanted to make it DXT5, but for some reason the nVidia DXT file format plug-in for Photoshop made it black and white if I did that. But it's not less quality than the original tachometer, so it's no loss or anything.
