    Welcome to the V1.5 of the Codename Oldsfullsize ADDON.

    screenshot_01644.jpg
    screenshot_02022.jpg screenshot_00911.jpg screenshot_01927.jpg screenshot_01624.jpg screenshot_01365.jpg

    Instructions to read carefully :

    You have downloaded the main file called oldsfullsize_codename.zip on the top of the page ?

    This is an extended addon pack, not limited to Oldsmobile brand. You get now Chevrolet Caprice cars with it.

    The new name is codename_american_fullsize_series.zip

    - First of all please DELETE the PREVIOUS VERSION of the addon called oldsfullsize_oldsmobile_addon.zip
    It is now broken and not compatible with the new oldsfullsize_codename.zip main file.

    Also you'll mess up completly all the Delta 88 section if you keep the old Addon besides the new one.

    Then download the new file addon on the bottom of this post, or on this big link :
    DOWNLOAD THE ADDON PACK HERE



    And save it in Mydocuments/beamng.drive/mods/

    and you're done !




    Description :

    first of all, what you have to know is that cars are now separated mods. Here you have an overview of where to find them in the selector.


    screenshot_02065.jpg

    The number of presets is so big that it would have been insane to keep them into one car folder.

    Features :

    - Caprice Sedan and Wagon by Carface80 : He allowed me to use the Caprice and to modify it to my needs. So i made the Olds Wagon out of it, and also adapted those two Chevy to work properly in the mod.
    Caprice are merged, interior and body panels are the modified original ones, then floor, engines and engine bay, drivetrain, frame are the same as the Oldsmobile mod.



    - Beamstate : One interesting feature is the new "BEAMSTATE" part that allow cars to spawn pre-damaged.
    It use a lua to load renamed vehicle.save.json in a specific location.
    So beater can be damaged, many things are possible.

    screenshot_01551.jpg screenshot_01554.jpg

    But this features have sides effects, you need to reload the car (Ctrl_R) to keep the windows broken, the car can't be rotated for a scenario, and other effects.


    So if you don't like this, just remove the part from the car here :

    screenshot_01545.jpg

    Lua by Thomatoes50 and node grabbing by me :p

    - tailgate : Press O once to have it open from top to bottom, and O twice to have it open like a door.
    Beautifull lua magic by Ar162B.


    screenshot_01402.jpg screenshot_01404.jpg

    - TV : On the Regency Limo only press O to open the TV door and play a video.
    Lua by Thomatoes50 and jbeam by Bernd.
    Sometimes the tv opening and video can be reversed so you can press R and O to make them match again.

    screenshot_01103.jpg

    - Wagon rear ride height control : In the tuning menu



    - Armoured presidential Limo : This things weights 6 tons, and has bullet proof body and glass. Jbeam and idea by Synsol.



    - Demo Derby wheels :
    Derby cars have very bad wheels painting, covering the tires :

    screenshot_01372.jpg screenshot_01373.jpg


    You can choose the paint color for those, differently for front and rear, for both blackwall and whitewall tires.

    Select bodycolored General Motors steel wheels. Then "Derby paint". Tires will be affected automatically. They will be painted and dirty.

    screenshot_01385.jpg screenshot_01386.jpg screenshot_01387.jpg screenshot_01388.jpg

    Soon upcoming things :
    to be completed

    Skins:
    Skins UV templates can be found in this thread :
    https://beamng.com/threads/oldsfullsize-mod-wip-skins-thread.31258/#post-457458

    to be completed

    Some features and presets are still WIP


    Sounds :
    sounds are now the official cars V8. It sounds great. Game was updated today and i lost the ability to combine custom sounds and official ones. So Diesel engine will be gazoline untill i can make custom sounds based on the new system. It won't be long.

    Bugs :
    This update contains little bugs in the console like data discarded nodes and meshes not found. We tried to fix them but decided it was too risky and could result on bigger mistakes and issues. Bug fix will be released in a few days.
    Please note that this mod is huge, contains a lot of DAE and skins.

    Hi Everyone, and welcome to the thread of the V1.5 of the American '80 Fullsize Series.

    The mod pack is on finishing stage, so it's time to show you a little teaser of it.
    To have fun after a long period of work on those cars, i made a short comics story and had fun integrating characters in it, and showcase some new stuff of the mod.
    I wanted to do that last year as well but lacked time to achieve. It's not finished like i wish it would be, but anyway, i'm sure you are all more interested in discovering new body variants, so here it is.

    If you look closely the images, you will maybe notice some changes and improvments, as well as some new parts.

    I go on working on the mod for now , more info teasers to come very soon so this is going to be more detailled progressivly.

    I answer to some questions already : yes, the range of cars is no more limited to Oldsmobile. And yes, a well known modder have cars featured in the pack now :p

    Yes indeed :D

    Available in 1986 and 1989 headlights and details (in the teaser the 1986 Caprice has 1989 side lights, because i havn't made the amber ones when i did the screenshots)



    Lights are working like on the real ones, thanks to the Caprice owners or specialists of the beta test group, Sierra-3, Peterbilt and Qwerty9586

    This a good idea. The mod has other stuff but not this one yet. I'll add it in an update after the release.

    Really cool to see that Caprice, totally unexpected. Will it be avaible as a wagon tho? Nice work anyway.

    Also, saw a cool Delta last weekend.
