In-Depth Engine Design
Solid engine design is a big part of creating a successful car in Automation. The game gives you the opportunity to build your own engines from scratch; from the engine configuration, over the valvetrain design, to the fuel system and detailed turbocharging systems. Many design changes even affect the engine sound.
Compromises and challenges abound, do you need the smallest and cheapest engine possible for a budget mini-car or a no-expense-spared twin-turbo beast for your next supercar? There are literally quadrillions of possible engines to design. (We counted..)
Want to challenge your engine building skills? 50+ different engine scenarios put you in the shoes of an engineer to build motors for every possible application, while the Engine Design Multiplayer lets you test your skills against human opponents in a race against the clock.
Lots of video tutorials, part descriptions and an extensive manual help engineering novices learn how engines work and how they can apply these skills in-game.
All these features are already available right now in the current release, with lots more engine types coming soon.
