    Hello! im starting to work on my first ever mod for beamng drive! the first ever car i bought was a 1998 Chevrolet metro Lsi sedan so i thought why not try to make that again since Ive wanted to try to make something!, so far I have the jbeam made wheel logs will not be in the jbeam dont worry, Im going to see about making the sedan first, working on different trim levels, and then custom versions. Will update again soon! I do work full time so i only get a couple hours a week to work on this stuff. metrolsi.png e4e827f8b23f5d819e2bff004893c0a8.png f812bb045007b92011bcc467667f9f3a.png
    Cheers!
    Update: 1/24/18
    Have been working tons of o/t misc jobs to cover up financial woes, had 700$ stolen to make it a short. will update the models as soon as I have a chance

    I always wanted this car in-game, the Geo Metro, AKA the "Most Normal Car Ever And That's What Makes It Popular".

    A good amount of detail could be a little tricky, those are not the best blueprints

    Interesting approach to starting your model. Can we see some wireframe shots and/or shots from edit mode so we can see your poly flow?



    Those blueprints are not very good, the side pic is probably all you will be able to use from that. Ik because I've used prints like these, and they just suck :p
    As long as you're modeling in scale and have the data for the width of the vehicle, this shouldn't be impossible to work around.


    I hope you complete it. If you need JBeam creation help or in general any help with your mod, I am a PM away and open. Also don't forget about the mod support team, they're always willing to help too.

    Cool, doesn't hurt to have 2 being made. 2 different approaches to making basically the same car for BeamNG.
