    Here I have created a version of the Ibishu Pessima which is designed to be very comfortable and softly sprung.

    The standard Floatima has the standard 2.7L V6.

    The sport version however has a fake 4.6L Cadillac Northstar engine (I call it the East Star) packing near 300HP.
    This engine is ported from automation and has no model, it also blows up for some reason unless you add the heavy duty long block (which I have). This happened with another V8 I built too so I can only assume it's the nature of the beast.

    If you want to try creating your own engine you can follow this tutorial (not made by me): https://www.beamng.com/threads/i-ma...n-engine-to-an-existing-beamng-vehicle.70022/

    To use this car you will need to download GPACK:
    https://www.beamng.com/resources/gpack.6408/

    As well as the Pessima Gambler mod:
    https://www.beamng.com/resources/gambler-ibishu-pessima-mega-pack-mfd-challenge.12224/

    Machine's Wheel Pack:
    https://www.beamng.com/threads/machines-wheel-pack.36725/

    This is because the Sport version uses parts from these mod packs.

    To install just unzip the file into your "BeamNG.drive" folder in your documents. :)

    or you know, just pack your mod properly so it can go in the 'mods' folder just like every other mod out there

    I'm not good with this stuff, I still have problems getting the image and description to show up but it should at least work on a basic level.

    I think you should change the ETK wheels on the sport version. A 1990s Japanese saloon shouldn’t have modern ETK 19 inch rims...

    And even if the wheels were from the 90s, then why would a Pessima have ETK wheels?

    The whels are actually from a Sunburst and I used them as they are some of the only 265 sport tires that would fit properly on a Pessima (remember it's very powerfull), I find they look aftermarket myself and quite like the look but if you dont you can always change them for any other in game wheels.

    your .pc, info.json, and thumbnails should go in the main midsize folder. (vehicles/midsize)

    your info.jsons are simply named "Floatima.json" and "Sport_Floatima.json" which is incorrect. it's supposed to be info_(config_name).json, so in this case "info_Floatima.json" and "info_Sport_Floatima.json"

    your thumbnails have .png twice, so you likely havent enabled file name extensions
    upload_2020-5-20_10-43-8.png
    (btw, your thumbnails were 10mb each so i scaled them down)

    you've also duplicated the entire "floatima" folder inside itself.

    your mod should be packed [ZipName].zip/vehicles/midsize/Floatima instead of vehicles.zip/midsize/Floatima
    this would allow you to drop it straight into the 'mods' folder which exists for a reason

    here's what it should look like, i dont have the time to test it but theoretically you should be able to remove the files you created in documents/beamng/vehicles/midsize and just drop this .zip file into documents/beamng/mods

    Oh right, I didn’t see the Hirochi badges. The ETK XcSport (I think that’s what they’re called?) wheels are very similar to the Sunburst ones. Still, I think it would fit better with Ibishu wheels. Maybe you should make some custom ones?

    Thanks for the help, I tested your file and it worked and I used it to split the V8 version into 2 cars as well. One is slightly customised and the other has more stock looking (and period corect) mesh wheels from "Machine's Wheel Pack" (now linked above).
