    CURRENTLY THIS MOD IS UNSUPPORTED
    If you make it work, good for you. Otherwise don't bother asking because I'm not updating it for now, I might do it someday as I'm busy with other projects.



    Well, here it is, the release version

    2015-01-14_00003.jpg 2015-01-14_00006.jpg

    Development thread:

    1968-Chevy-Nova-UPDATE-0-5b-WORKS-ON-EXPERIMENTAL-NOW


    Credits stuff:
    3D model/textures done by myself except windows by Gabester
    Jbeams based on Gabester's Moonhawk


    Installation stuff:
    - Delete cache files if you have a previous version of this car installed
    - Extract to /vehicles folder
    - Works on both experimental and stable versions


    Nice stuff:
    - Recycled 10-years old 3D model, wich I never thought it would end up in a real-time game
    - Nice shiny metallic paint coloring (For semi-matte paint use alpha on 2)
    - Lots of parts textured, dirt included
    - Different wheels / engine choices
    - Sort of "realistic" performance
    - Nice crash deformations
    - Very fun to burn rubber in manual gears


    And the bla bla stuff (changes since 0.5b):

    - New Torq Thrust M wheels with Michelin low profile tires, all mapped
    - Jbeams: fixed wheels "wobbling" and steering, added 16 nodes
    fixed bug on the rear that caused to collapse itself after a while and crash the game
    - Resampled some textures wich were too low res, fixed AO and normal maps from body and wheels
    - Fully textured interior (diffuse, AO, normal)
    - Working speedo and tach (not very accurate but they work)
    - Functional lights
    - 5 different setups:
    Default: 427 V8 engine, 4-spd M21 trans., 4.11 rear, Torq Thrust rims, Michelin tires, stock suspension
    Good compromise between speed, accel and grip
    350 Firestone: 350 V8 engine, 4-spd M20 trans., 3.55 rear, Firestone Wide Ovals, steel wheels w/hubcap, stock suspension
    Good handling, but the Wide Ovals like to burn if you floor it
    350 Torq Thrust: 350 V8 engine, 4-spd M20 trans., 3.55 rear, Torq Thrust rims, Michelin tires, stock suspension
    Easier setup, mild powered engine and good grip
    427 Firestone: 427 V8 engine, 4-spd M21 trans., 4.11 rear, Firestone Wide Ovals, steel wheels w/hubcap, stock suspension
    Tire smoker setup, most fun using manual gears, the most fun to drive (to me)
    427 lowered: Same as default, but with lower and stiffer suspension.
    Too low ride height, wheels go right through the fenders, but still, cool to take pics and drift.


    Performance:
    The 427 V8 has 420hp@6000rpm and the 350 V8 320hp@5500rpm
    Best time with default setup: 0-60mph 6.4 sec. manual gears
    Top speed about 140mph with the 427



    Things that I might fix someday:
    - Not the most accurate Nova model, the frame/suspension components are from the Moonhawk
    - Naming convention, still using moonhawk names here and there on jbeams files
    - 350 engine could use some texturing
    - Running rear lights only glow, no texture, same as turn signals
    - No interior/gauges lights
    - Materials.cs file is a mess, but it works
    - Door hinges look weird when crashing
    - Door windows won't break

    As you can see, there's a cache problem. Those wheels are from the old version, so you need to delete all the files before installing the new one.

    Delete all files here: \Documents\BeamNG.drive\cache\vehicles

    And delete the old version here before extracting: \SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\BeamNG.drive\vehicles

    Same for the texture loading problem. Let me know if it helps.




    Don't worry, as soon as you have it I'll post it on top.

    Yeah I'm not really sure about what could be causing those squares at a certain distance. I think it's related to the mipmaps on the dds texture.

    I'll look into it as soon as I have some time.
