I am wondering how Horsepower is calculated?

Hi,

you can check the actual value by enabling the vehicle debug rendering by using the console command:
"gsVehicleToggleDebugRendering"

Note: the default vehicles are a bit overpowered, but just a tiny bit ;)

Cheers,
Emil

Ok, so there isn't a specific way to calculate them, more of a trial and error till I get the desired amount?

Also, when checking with the console, do I need to put the tractor under heavy load to check max power, or just drive around?

Raymond,
Horsepower is determined by the torqueScale value.
If the vehicle's maxRpm value is 2200 and the last torque curve line is <torque normRpm="1" torque="0.72"/>, then the formula is:

torqueScale = HP / 225.5

If the maxRpm is not 2200, the formula is more complicated:

HP = (torqueScale * torquecurvevalue * Pi * RPM / 30) * 1.35962161

This link is where I got the formulas from:
