~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).
In trucks and cars:
The battery light is green, the ignition changes, the load locked light goes green, the mouse is blue, the parking break goes green and
the needles are blue.
The engine off is red, the engine on is green, the engine fire changes colour.
!!!!!!!!!!!NOTE: ALL CHANGES ARE SHOWN IN THE PICS!!!!!!!!!
