Should the "empty" grille be replaced with the one from the Hopper on all hoods?

    Oh wow, I didn't realize there were that many.
    I have a newfound respect for you guys now, along with an idea of just how much content you are making, which is probably why it's taking much longer than other mods.

    But oh well, just another reason to make this my default car when it comes out.

    No joke... like...there is a lot of parts. Not as many as that Focus thing... but then again, I think Sithhy remodeled everything in this file like... 8 different times, so honestly it probably could equate to about the same if they all would have been unique, if not more. But he wanted to improve them as he got better at modeling so that the mod could be a quality mod. This does of course mean more work for me, but in the long run it should make for a real quality mod. Right now there are so many combinations of parts that you could probably make thousands of configurations with enough imagination.

    Yeah, that was was I was thinking of when you mentioned that there were a lot of parts.

    Also, wow. That takes dedication.

    How many pre-set configs are you thinking of making? I know the Vertex (focus thing) has about 100.

    Ehh... hard to say... right now most of our configurations are created out of being lazy. So like.... 6x6 for instance... too lazy to put all the parts on to test it? Just make a config... bam! One click and I'm testing away!

    Now most of those will be included... because they are all legitimate configurations... The only one I may not include that I have right now is what I call the BYOT... which stands for Build Your Own Truck, as during testing, there are a lot of times that I may only want a frame and one part on it to make sure I configured everything for that part correctly, but constantly pulling all the bits off gets annoying. So that config is, quite literally, a bear frame... nothing else on it. Really nice for testing... but not much else.

    As for Configurations that we actually plan to include. I have been making a list of standard configurations (so think trim levels just like any in game dev quality vehicle). So far I am up to only 2010 on that list, and... its 53 configs long. I will add some more, but seeing as I hadn't counted it until now, that might be a bit much? That's up for the community to decide I suppose.

    I plan to take it up to 2021, or whatever year we actually end up launching it in. We made up a make believe acquisition that happened between Brutus and ETK I think? Sithhy might remember better. The mental idea was along the lines to create configurations that had modern components kinda like the idea behind the G Wagon (even though that's more along the lines of Merc just seeing how far they can push an antiquated design anymore it seems) where it is an older truck, but it gets all the modern goodies and is basically reconditioned as a luxury machine. Could also equate it to a Range Rover... I guess... but they actually update their vehicles so I don't know if its quite the same comparison... But they were bought and are now owned by BMW... so I guess that could still work.

    So, I don't even know if this has been reviled here yet, but whatever.

    So extra bits that the B1 is getting due to this imaginary merger.

    ETK Turbo i6 Engine (it has MORE than enough power to get this thing up and shifting)
    10 Speed Automatic Transmission (to help with fuel economy)
    Electronic Auto Locking Differentials
    A full sweet of Driver Aids with different Driving modes (Normal, Sport, Off Road, or just off)
    /\ All of that is in the game already, so woo hoo /\

    I intend to add Air Suspension to something similar to a Range Rover... That simulated solid axle thing they got going on along with adjustable ride height... when I get that far I will probably ask Trackpad for some help as LUA is just not my thing.

    Sithhy has been doing work on creating a modern, smooth body. No exposed rivets, subtle curves (maybe), better proportioned windows, more modern lighting, and probably a modern interior, again, biased off something like a Range Rover or G Wagon as a basis.

    So yeah... anyways... configs... even just standard ones. There will be quite a few.

    Then Sithhy is working on coming up with more fun ones. More silly things like crazy lifts, crazy off roaders, a stripped down racer, you know... all the fun stuff. He already has a list of about 20+ of those too, so yeah... premade configs. We can have A LOT if that is what people want.

    And honestly, there could be even more... the shear combination of parts just lends itself to amassing combinations for configs that I just didn't even think about. There will be tons of left over potential to make configs of your very own that we just couldn't even come up with.

    How hard would it be to add an upfit version, similar to this:

    But with a cargo box, flatbed, etc on the back?

    So you mean like... your just looking for the 2 door cab, but no rear end on the chassis?

    Yeah, but with the ability to add upfits similar to the D- and H- series' upfit chassis, so I could put all those upfits on this.
    --- Post updated ---
    It would look similar to this with the Ambulance upfit.

    Yeah, I think I can do something like that... would make putting things on it for modders much easier.

    You could also add a few more upfits, like a fire truck, or a tour vehicle.

    It would also be cool if you maybe made a working weapon system too, like a machine gun, or a TOW missile.

    I was working on it yesterday... did some more suspension tuning. Plus added a few parts... I think about 4 in total? I know that doesn't sound like much, but I only had a couple hours to work on it... so still making progress. I forgot to take some actual pics to share, but here is one I sent to Sithhy yesterday. New rear light bar.

    Were you thinking of making working weapon mounts?
    --- Post updated ---
    Also, do you have any more pictures of the vehicle, or are they all on the original post?
