    2020 ETK K SERIES FACELIFT
    IT IS TIME TO GIVE A NEW LOOK TO OUR MODERN GT.

    Welcome to our thread, we are making the brand new facelift version of our long favored 2-door GT, ETK K series.

    This thread was originally created in the ideas and suggestions forum. It was just an idea and concept in our mind. But we decided to make this project for real, and it became a WIP project. Here is some of the results.

    Long story short, pss5156 made the sketch of the new ETK K series facelift, and now Derpitron is working on the 3D modeling of the car. C63S has studied car design and will share many design ideas with me on the project ahead. MarkosRuiz and The Raccoon is working on a engine mod. Now we need some more crew members to join us.

    We want to use all of our capabilities to make this project a success, but things like J-beam, which we've never encountered, are difficult to complete with our own power.

    I need some help making this mod, and doing it in the ideas and suggestions forum wasn't suitable with the purpose of my thread, so I moved it in here. Anyone who wants to see the last post, click 'spoiler'. Any ideas and suggestions of my work is welcomed. And I really want to collaborate with mod makers. Feel free to contact me. Thank you :D
    Past thread link is CLOSED.

    <2019/9/20 post>
    Rear design of K Series is now complete!(One good night of sleep gave me the idea. Forget 9/19 post) Now I am going to rest for a while. Then I am going to design wheels, and some air dynamics. I want this progress slow but steady. If there is anyone who wants to join me and support me(please), I'll be more active on this mod. Thank you everybody for support me and give me the suggestion, see you again soon :)

    Rear facelift design of K-Series

    <2019/9/19 post>
    Thing is not going well as I supposed to... Rear design is a tough part of all. Some of you might read my reply, the rear end is the most important parts for us because we always get to stare a back of a car. So I really took some serious times thinking about them. It is not a complete sketch and I need help. Ha ha :D

    (RIP paper) 'God... I really cannot find the appropriate line.'

    20190919_164259.jpg
    And there we go. Current status. And I am completely unsatisfied. My paper got ripped a little bit so it is rough as hell. But I think I kinda know there I am going. Couldn't fuse Volvo design onto it because when you do that double line, it is just a Volvo. Struggling to make it look new and inherited from the ancestor K series. But guys, few weeks past since I posted the last post, I am not dead, stay tuned!

    <2019/8/26 post>
    Rear bumber is coming! Actually, I didn't finished it that much. But still working on it. Scribbling things and throw away everyday. And mid term is coming too, personally. But still, stay tuned :)

    <2019/8/20 post>
    I made a full first sketch of a facelift version of ETK K-series for the first time. Here is the result. It became a less aggresive but more stylish. I will post another one with few more pictures of designing processes. Stay tuned.

    Summery of this post: I've read some comments from you guys(Blah Blah) I am currently need someone to help me make a mod of this when I'm done drawing. If there's any mod creators who wants to join me or help me working with this mod, feel free to contact me. I know that there is another way to send a personal message through this Beamng official community site. Comment is fine too.

    <2019/8/17 post>
    Summery of this post: Roughly designed a facelift ver. of ETK K-series including wider front air vents and aggressive headlights. One single circle HID headlights(1) Daylight LEDs(2) A tiny vent(or maybe a piece of silver metal)(3) An indicator(4) (Numbers are in the picture 1) not a lot changes but more aggresive looking.
    Please comment your suggestions down below blah blah

    One thing, in your drawing, I don't see any foglights. Where are they? Also, the old post is removed, going to the old link throws an error.

    Gotcha. I'll fix it soon! Plus, I will also mention some detail parts in my design. It is kinda complicated. I'll re upload that soon, too.
    --- Post updated ---
    Thread is updated.
    1. Images are back.
    2. Fixed some grammar errors in my posts and my replies.(I am not that good at speaking English. I'll try harder on that problem :p)
    And yes, old thread is disappeared. I don't know what happened, but anyways feel free to ask anything. I'll probably post another one by October 13th - 19th. I appreciate any comments until then. Thank you :D <3

    Fender is coming along nicely, X-Mirror and Topology Mirror feature has been very helpful.
    Front Grille is a bit more stretched now.
    @pss5156, there is one small thing. The bottom grill is absent in your design, it is present in the original design. Where is the bottom grille? (It is called as bumper_grille internally)



    It has been fun so far, I am taking a break for the day.

    You mean the one that is under the main radiator grille? I'll explain more later, but here's few quick summeries!
    20190927_235314.jpg
    Red: original Blue: new
    20190927_235513.jpg
    Yeah. Whole new bumper. I'll explain that later with more details.
    20190928_000310.jpg
    Some specific light parts. Darker blue is basically hi-beam part.
    And dude, you did a really good job there. I'll add you on the credit of this mod for sure. Yeah take a break :)

    The lower side grilles are mesh grilles for airflow now, right?
    On the original design, there were some foglights where your mesh grilles are. Where are they now? Are they in the headlights structure? If so, that doesn't make sense, foglights are supposed to be low, because fog is low to the ground.
    About the chrome line, I did some looking around in existing car designs. Chrome is practically absent in sports/luxury/GT cars these days, and they're mostly only present on old, vintage cars. It wouldn't make sense for a contemporary sports car, especially one getting a facelift.
    I'm not saying your ideas are bad, I'm just giving some constructive criticisms for your design choices.
    Edit: About chrome on cars, it's seen today in luxury car grilles, so your upper grille actually makes the car look more refined and well, more like an ETK.
    --- Post updated ---
    The lines around the headlights look quite complex, I would suggest cutting down on those lines, and maybe expanding the headlights themselves. From a distance, the headlight size looks normal, but when I zoom in to take references from them, the headlights themselves look quite small.

    Oops, I forgot about the foglight. I'll think about it today (by today I mean it is 8:22 am here in korea by posting this reply. I'll try some of the spots and decide which shape is better). And chrome line is for GTs and you are right. But I just want to keep the design of those in whatever texture. Because that is kinda what I want for this car. A line that goes across the whole front bumper. Maybe for a sport version I would use a carbon fiber or matte black material. Good point!
    And note; I will make that design much more aggresive. The one I posted (front) is GT version(Because in the previous post people said it was quite a bit passive aggresive), and the rear is sport version(I did this so that I can adjust the aggresive of GT version's rear bumper style.)
    And you are right, the headlight is too small(oopsie) I will fix that too.
    It had many more errors that I previously anticipated haha but will not gonna make these mistakes again. Thank you very much for your work of this bad boy. And it was very informative point :)
    Edit: Erased the unnecessary line in the rear bumper. That was the reason of the charger looking long rearlamp. How about now? May have to raise the lettering position up.

    Headlights are quite hard to make. I also will need some help with JBeam and Glowmap for headlights and taillights.

    In my opinion there is no point of adding foglights as it will make the car possibly uglier. Many modern cars don't have foglights and some have them built into the headlight.

    Agreed. I just removed the foglight's jbeam and mesh, I'll use it's old shape for the new grille. I don't think it's possible yet to make the sweeping LEDs for indicators, I've never seen animations like that in any BeamNG Car, official or community.

    I'm skipping making headlights and taillights for now, focusing on bigger things like front bumper. I removed unnecessary objects like radiator which I am not going to be editing. It lowered the filesize significantly.

    Edit: I found an example of sweeping indicators in BeamNG. On the forums, there has been someone who made some cosmetic parts for the 200BX. He had made some tailights where if you turn on indicators, it has the sweeping animation like you had specified! The parts are available in thee parts pack, https://www.beamng.com/resources/wbimp-config-megapack.6880/ (WBMIP) if you want to check it out. I can try to reverse engineer the code or ask the dev how he did it.

    Progress update 9/30: Front bumper's grilles are nearly finished, and rear bumper is going nicely too!

    This is harder than I thought it would be. I need help with UVs and JBeam, modelling I can do.

    Wait, why the K - S E R I E S in that style? It works, I guess. But I suggest to make the lettering flat and wide and/or in some modern font like tesla's. Still good tho.

    Whoa, I was busy studying and did not got amy chances seeing your replies. And that is gorgeous. It is rough, but I can kinda see it going. Definately you are not going to use that font and thickness in the rear, right?
    And on the plus note, I want to keep up with your work speed too. Your work speed is really faster than I originally thought. There are some things I want in this design, and few of em is missing. But I know it is not a big gap between your work and mine. It is wonderful already seeing your design.
    I originally thought when I made this design, the gaps between air vents under the front grille and radiator grille was a bit much, so I brought up the air vents little bit mor upwards. Please consider it when you do the 3d modeling.
    Also, I think that upside down v shaped attached air vent is just not-finished touch, right? It should be removed from the... upper part.(I cannot describe its name)
    Beside all these, AWESOME work. Good job I like it. I did show your work to my friend and they were amazed. If I were able to meet you, I'll buy a nice meal if I can. I really do :D
    --- Post updated ---
    One the pluse note, lower trims should get fog lights, so stay tuned for entry ver. designs.

    I'm working from the base shell, then making more significant edits from there on. I found the explanation for how the animated lights were made, on the 2019 Ibishu 200BX Thread.
    This is essentially what my main plan for now is
    - I will make the side vents taller ✓
    - I will make the headlights and taillights, and I can reverse engineer the 2019 200BX taillight's code to see how in the world they did it.
    - I will change the diffuser
    - I will change the license plate "place" (where the license plate is) so it looks like an upside down trapezium shape which is touching the rear lights, so it looks like Audi R8.
    - I will change the exhaust tips to be 4 square-ish shapes
    - I would like to keep the font of the rear design, but I agree, size and extrusion is way too off. ✓
    - Foglights aren't used in cars much today, and @SmokingTiresGaming said that they would look ugly
    - What wheel designs do you have in mind? I personally would like to see this wheel design. I fell in love with it when I was younger, and it seems like such an ETK wheel


    I am only going with speed since I am focusing on making unfinished, borderline rough shapes and designs. My plan is to do the remodels roughly, and then I can refine and refine the edits sin a stage by stage basis.
    I will really need some help with JBeam, UV, and even models. I cannot do it alone.

    I acknowledged your plan, and I am totally agree on it. And yeah, if you doworkwith thethickness, I am all right with that font. And you and I actually have a same wheel style in the mind. You EXACTLY chose the same image of rim of rs3. No more discussion on the rim. I am working on it. I will talk to my friends if I can get some ideas and thoughts of jbeams and stuff, but still I feel we are lack of experts of this subject.
    I really cannot thank enough that you are so passionate with my idea. I'll contect with you with more ideas ;)
