    That was one of my references for doing this project, along with some other auction listings and a couple restoration blogs, and a few sources here and there.


    Again the vehicle modeling is complete, I'm working on fine tuning the JBeam. Part of that is fixing the suspension to my liking and getting it to be closer to the real car.

    once you are finished with this. Could you possibly go back to the vendetta and do like a few hours worth of work redoing the jbeam? Or is that car a lost cause at this point? R.I.P the little Vendetta and its never detaching hood.

    I agree with you, the Vendetta needs an update. I had one almost ready, then in testing it didn't want to install properly over the old mod, requiring the mod to be removed, then the game cache to be cleared manually and the mod be re-installed after. Until I can figure that out, or the entire mod is remade, I won't be submitting that update to the repository.

    At this point honestly I want to redo it all. Will I? Well, I do like C3 Corvettes still, I don't see why I wouldn't return to the Vendetta someday.




    On another note, one more thing's crossed off my ToDo list;

    screenshot_2019-02-26_05-32-52.png

    The broken windshield cracks. They're messy, I had to borrow the Miramar's cracked windshield model and hack it into place since I don't have a clue yet as to how I should go about making it myself (I'm guessing grease pencil with solidify? idk,) but it does the job.

    We're good to go with the engine model :)

    What I do is make a duplicate of the windshield, get the knife tool and go to town on it drawing cracks. Once you're done select the cracked edges, invert selection and delete the rest of the windshield.

    Then you may want to go through the resulting mesh and merge some verts the simplify it a bit. After that simply extrude it a tiny bit and set it back into the windshield slightly. Works well for me.

    If you want to be extra meticulous, you can map the damaged glass texture from the car onto the mesh in blender and turn on "textured solid" so you can see it in the viewport, then knife tool over the textured cracks so they line up properly, though I have't bothered with this. You may also want to make it double sided (duplicate mesh, flip normals) as I'm not sure if the material it applies when broken is double sided.

    I'll give that a try. The knife tool isn't one of my go-to tools for stuff, it often tends to get overlooked until its my last option for something.

    And yes the broken windshield material itself is double sided, as seen here;

    Glad to hear Mike allowed you to use the engine :) I thought getting permission may delay the release, but I'm really happy that is not the case :D

    You just never know sometimes. I'm extremely happy and thankful I have permission to continue using it, I was struggling quite badly with modeling a 10A engine myself, and I saw that and decided it would work.



    I have switched gears from adjusting the suspension to adjusting deformation. There are some really nasty spots in the vehicle that don't deform very well, and I'm trying to control them as much as possible, while still maintaining some realism and period correctness. I'm using the Miramar as a reference for how it should deform.


    I'll be JBeaming the exhaust and getting it in-game today too, I cut the hole in the rear face for it earlier;

    Before

    screenshot_2019-02-23_03-10-01.png
    After
    screenshot_2019-02-27_09-16-45.png

    Since filling in the gap between the 2 sets of faces I cut through is going to cause problems with the UVs, I'll be modeling a simple flat shaded sleeve to cover it up.

    Love your work but, as i know the car quite well, i would suggest a different shape for the exhaust cut-out, a bit smaller and rounder. great work anyway. (in the immage a 1967 model)

    @Driv3r1142

    After some more digging around I found this image of deformed Mazda Cosmo's.

    I found this via searching on Bing, sometimes you get different results based on what search engine you used.

    I searched Mazda Cosmo Crashed.

    Hope that these are useful.

    This mod is shaping up to be very interesting!
    Whether it's the real car or a BeamNG-friendly name change, I can't wait to be able to get my hands on it.

    Just to get this thread back on topic...

    Looking very good so far Driv3r! Nice to have another vintage Jap car ingame, and potentially a Miramar contender. Definitely looking forward to it. :cool:

    English:Nice to meet you!

    Since I am a Japanese, I am worried that I can write it well but I write it.

    I love Cosmo Sports.
    I was looking for a BeamNG.Drive Cosmosport.
    And I found the Cosmo Sports you are making.
    So, I'd like to ride Cosmo Sports sooner!
    However, as it was still under construction, I wait until completion.
    I love you (of course also works), so you, too,
    Do your physical condition management, do not push yourself, please do your best! !

    I am waiting for your work! !

    I will leave Japanese for a while.


    Japanese:はじめまして!

    私は日本人なので、上手く書けるか不安ですが書きます。

    私はコスモスポーツが大好きです。
    私は、BeamNG.Driveのコスモスポーツが無いか探していました。
    そして、あなたが作っているコスモスポーツを見つけました。
    なので、あなたが作った、コスモスポーツに早く乗りたいです!
    ですが、まだ製作途中との事でしたので、私は完成するまで待ちます。
    私はあなたが大好きです(もちろん作品も)、なので、あなたも、
    体調管理をして、無理をしないで、がんばってください!!

    あなたの作品を待っています!!

    一応、日本語も乗せておきます。
