I followed a tutorial precisely and my engine just won't work.

For whatever reason, the scripts for the rev limits aren't working. If I try to set the idle limit to 25 rad/s, it just won't ignite at all. It doesn't matter what I try to put the limit as, they just aren't activated.

Please someone look this over and tell me what's wrong with it. I've been trying to make a spawn engine for a while now, and the repeated failures are driving me crazy.

Your problem is simple.
You did everything good except you dint notice that your engine rotates at the different direction witch means it shows -10rad/s
And your limiter says that when my engine goes higher that 25rad/s, imode will be 0.
Try to run engine in the different direction...
Or there's what to do to fix the function

All positive numbers make negatives and all < or > make different like form > to <. It will work i was using this for ages... You just need to understand what you doing. Following is not enough, the main part is understand it well.
Or you can just use "- > 25? {do this}:{else do this}"
I mean, you can put a minus symbol
Wow, that should of been a simple fix for me. Thanks for the help guys.

And vaidas I do get that understanding it is the most important part, not just copying scripts. But following your tutorial is what game me my knowledge about it now. I made my I3 engine work now, and I will very shortly be having this one working as well.

It was all thanks to your tutorials, they were a massive help and taught me basically everything I know now.
