    I think you might just be seeing the badge there but it isn’t perfect shaded smooth, so you never know there might be an ugly bit. I’ll look into it tomorrow, as I’m on mobile now.
    Thanks for the feedback and I’m glad you like the steering wheel. :)

    Also, how do you reset Blender to the factory settings?

    Top left menu (File) - scroll a few items down and there you are : 'Load Factory Settings' :)

    Poll closed, but i'd go for LHD, but maybe you can implement 2 different dashes for LHD and RHD,
    If you need 1.8 Diesel sounds, i could make some

    In the future I could try to make a LHD version, but I’m not sure how I could do that. do you know of a way that I could flip the dashboard in blender or something like that?

    As for the 1.8 Diesel It would be very helpful if you could make the sounds.

    Thanks! :)

    Don't know how i'd make the sounds as i've never made a mod for BeamNG, if you can tell me what you need for the sounds, i'd be happy to record them

    I have no idea how to do sounds either, but you probably just need and idling sound, a start-up sound and a revving sound.

    By the way will you be getting the sounds from that Transit Connect on your profile picture?

    Yes, the Connect, but mine has the old engine, so it sounds very close to the old 1.8

    Ok good, it probably will be quite similar to the original then.
    Thanks again!

    Ok, That didn't work, when I clicked it it deleted the whole model and loaded in the default cube.
    Luckily I closed Blender without saving and got my model back! :eek:

    That means it DID work. Default cube and factory settings, even if you forgot to save your file it is
    always possible to restore, Blender has a DOUBLE fallback system for that ! One is a file called 'quit.blend'
    and the other option is 'restore last session' in the splash menu. :)

    Ah right, I saw those options when I was looking for the reset factory settings button. I'll try and reset factory settings again :p

    I DID forgot to mention that after you reset to factory settings you need click 'Save User Settings' too otherwise Blender will
    only remember it for the current file. Oh and next time better to save and close your file first right ? It's not a problem though
    but bit more complicated imo. :)

    Ok I’ll try that today then, also when you say save and close the file do you mean save and close Blender? Because the problem is only on the transit, and if I open something else in Blender it’s got the factory settings anyway.
    Thanks :)

    To my opinion Blender is a vastly sophisticated and awesome program. Once you get the hang of it you can quickly achieve
    results concerning the projects you're working on, but in the mean time the program houses SO many features and parameters
    that we are not aware of and suddenly while you're working something changed and you can't get it back (cause maybe accidentally
    a key was pressed or a click was made hah) Anyway, I think it's your view ports / windows you got messed up? It's better that you say what you want to change and then maybe I can help ? :)

    Well, I opened Blender to work on the Transit and tried to extrude a vertex but it didn’t work, the same happened when I tried to move something as well. Later on I found out that I must of pushed a key or something because to move or extrude I need to hold CTRL whilst doing so. Do you have any idea how I can get it back so that I can move vertices without holding CTRL? Thanks :)

    Also @queenstar I’ve already modelled a front logo and there is a Ford-shaped oval on the steering wheel, so it would be a lot of work just to change its name...

    It still wouldn't be a direct predecessor to the American H-Series. Besides, he's already chosen a name.
