    Well, that's weird. I'm running a older version of Blender but I'll see if I can find something on this.

    edit : It seems cannot find anything related to your description of such action in Blender.
    It also isn't mentioned here
    https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/latest/modeling/meshes/editing/duplicating/extrude.html
    or in other sources I checked.

    Only thing I can add to this is make sure you don't leave doubles by cancelling a extrusion process.
    And most important : Are you using the hotkeys ? If not you're wasting a lot of your time and effort.

    Press 'E' to extrude and press 'G' to move (G stands for grab). If you want to move along a certain axis
    press 'E' or 'G' plus letter of axis. Example, pressing 'E' followed by 'Z' will extrude your selection only
    along the Z axis. 'G' followed by 'Y' moves a selection only by the Y axis. To confirm E G or S (S = scale)
    press enter, return or left mouse click.

    Yes, I am using the hotkeys
    Blender still isn't fixed but I'm getting used to it now...
    Anyway, I've been quite busy lately, but I have managed to get some decent looking pedals done

    I'm not sure what to do next, As I have no idea how to model an engine... :)

    You could probably yoink the Miramar engine model for a four cylinder, and then the LeGran model for the V-6 (Maybe some small re-texturing so it is brand friendly.)

    I was thinking about using the Miramar’s engine, but does the Miramar have a diesel option or a mod for it?

    There is an old outdated one, maybe you could adapt it? https://www.beamng.com/resources/diesel-miramar.1269/
    however I love the idea of the V4, it would be awesome if you could do it. No worries if you can't I cannot wait to see the mod and I think your progress is fantasic :D

    Yeah but it's outdated and AdamB doesn't really post too much anymore I don't think.

    Yes, it will have a windowed version, if you read my first post then you can see what options are planned :)
    As for that mod, is the Peugeot engine still an I4?

    It says 1.8 engine (55 HP) in the description, it's I4 most likely

    Even if it isn’t an I4, it’s a 1.8 diesel anyway, which is what I need :)

    Small update:

    - Made some windscreen wipers
    Blender_C__Users_carcr_Desktop_AlexsBlenderStuff_transitproject_baseblend14_02_202013_49_57.png



    - Added a texture to the lights
    Blender_C__Users_carcr_Desktop_AlexsBlenderStuff_transitproject_baseblend14_02_202013_47_26.png



    - Made some brakes and a simple suspension setup

    The light texture may change in the future, I just added it because the old one looked a little plain.
    Also, I'm not sure if I should use the undercarriage and engine from the FH4 model... Tell me what you think I should do, because I don't want to get copyrighted :p

    And finally, do you like the way I layed out this update, or should I have just done it like the other ones?

    Progress looks nice and your update layout is fine :)

    Though I would make sure the wipers sit on the window glass and not on the body of the car :p

    The wipers are actually on the body on the real one

    Also, I’ve never seen wipers on the actual glass on a car, surely if they were on the glass then the wiper motor would have to sit on the dashboard and the cable would have to go through the glass?
    I think it makes more sense for the wipers to be attached to the body, rather than the windscreen :)

    This mod looks really cool. I can't want to try it out once it gets released.

    Young man ! The wiper ARM sits on the body, the wiper BLADE sits on the glass ! :D
    On the RL pic you're presenting the wiper ARM is on the body and the wiper BLADE is on the glass. Your wiper blades are pointed
    towards the direction of the body of your vehicle as seen on the Blender pic you posted.

    Oh, I understand what you mean now :p
    When you said about the wipers a couple of posts ago you didn’t make it that clear that you were talking about the blade :D

    About the wipers though, surely it’s ok if they sit just below the glass, as when they turn on they will wipe it anyway... :)
