Good work so far. The controls are very annoying to use, might be worth some time to make them a little easier.

Noooo - this actually got released?! I was always looking forward to this mod, but kinda thought it's so ambitious, you won't make it.
As such: appologies for thinking that and great you made it:)

The have been improved a lot, but I think it still have game-freezing bugs, at last in the tutorial mission. I tried it more than 10 times, and when I got lucky to dont get bugged before creating the dmc 13 time machine, it freeze when I reach the start mark where I'm supposed to go in order to catch the RC Time machine, so I never finished the tutorial... I hope you guys fix it someday because the mod is awesome, I just reinstalled GTA VC to test this new release ^^. See you guys, and good luck ^^.

I would like to suggest a feature.

How about after time travel, the time (and location) circuits automatically turn themselves off.

This is a problem in the time train, since it can reach 88 very quickly and never has to be refueled.
