I have found that after you use RC to send a DeLorean through time, Griff's BMW wont fly until the Delorean gets back.

While I am on the topic of BMW glitches, heres another one I just now discovered: it can time travel. I got into a Delorean and activated the time circuits, and then got out and went to a BMW I had parked in my garage. I took it for a spin and as I got to about 82mph something very strange happened. The wheels started sparking and the blue portal opened up in front of the BMW. I tried getting it up to 88 to see if it would go all the way through with time travel, but the speed seemed to max out at 86. I took it to the airport so I would have plenty of room to try and reach 88. I managed to get up enough speed right before driving off of the cliff and into the ocean, but it reached 88 before hitting the ocean and did indeed time travel. I repeated this a few more times and it has worked every time. I also tried with various other cars and the only one that seems to do it is the BMW. Also, trying to make the BMW fly after getting in it cancels out the time travel ability.

BMW doesen't fly at me

There is a reason that the readme was invented.

I dont see anything in the readme mentioning the BMW not being able to fly during RC or its ability to glitch into time travel.

oh crap, was refering to doc.brown's comment. Completely missed yours.

Yep, i know why. The hover mode is used by both the delorean and bmw, and the car referenced is the same for both hover and time travel. The car you are driving is stored in a variable and hover mode overwrites that variable, causing the script to confuse the delorean as a bmw. Also, when time traveling, i disabled the hover script, though I believe I don't have to. I fixed the bug, so no more problems next release.

And you can still hover even if the delorean is time traveling

can you make it so we can also time travel in other deloreans/ time train while waiting for a delorean we just sent to the future to appear

so for example i could send a delorean to 8:00 am and then jump in another delorean and use that to travel to the same time
or maybe a couple minutes earlier. i understand that you cant make it so i travel to 8:01 and expect to have the first delorean waiting for me

Very complicated to do. It is possible, but then, i need a hell lot more variables to keep track of each delorean. I am currently attempting to do it for 0.2d/0.3, whichever comes first, since doing it for 0.2c would be overkill. It would mean a complete rewrite of code......like a hundred pages of it.

The next update will only have one Delorean at a time, but I'm curious about Delorean and Time Train time traveling at the same time...

one delorean and one train at a time. for now.
