    Since the Moonhawk revamp is not coming anytime soon, I decided to make an idea thread. besides the obvious improvements like textures and engine models or models overall, like my previous thread on the Burnside's beacon perhaps a beacon much like the federal signal twinsonic, or somthing akin to the lights of the Eckhart champion from mafia 3(sure that lightbar is from the late 60's but I doubt police agencies had much in the way of funds to upgrade the lights every few years, plus I think they would look cool on the Moonhawk since to me is seems like a cross between a Monaco and Gran fury)just to be along the lines of periodically accurate. As for body styles well, basically beating a horse here with this, a sedan, wagon, a ute, and for a small twist a van like the Holden sandman....maybe. Now finally, skins the wagon variant if it ever becomes a reality I think should have the fake wood paneling that was so common on station wagons of the 70s, the sedan would have police and taxi skins for those that want to roleplay as a 70s cop or cabbie or smash up public service barges with a T-series, the ute and van, I gotta be honest I'm pulling a blank here aside from the van which would have one skin be basically be the fender stripes you see on the Holden sandman. finally the coupe, it would have all the skins we currently have but I feel like it needs a skin making it look like the picard piranha from interstate '76(I've been listening to the soundtrack too much)as tribute to a criminally underrated game. If any of you have anything you want to add, feel free and sorry for the paragraph.

    i think a panel van is out of place the moonhawk is substantially larger than even a HQ holden, VH chrysler, or ford XA, i'd much prefer a completely distinct RHD australian vehicle if they were to make such a thing.

    I like your ideas, but to me the most important part is the rear lights. Right now they look so basic, they got no shapes, no details, and it ruins the car in my opinion...

    yeah, the taillights do come off as an afterthought but it was the design then hopefully that will be addressed in the future.

    I know this technically makes sense and also doesnt, but maybe a pinto-esque hatchback with a crappy i4?
    we dont have any 70's econohatches in the game and the moonhawk was made during the oil crisis sooo......
    and also a 1980 el camino styled ute because honestly we need one

    I think beamng in the future could have some more "variations" from the current cars in the game for example; moonhawk in the 60s, 80s and early 70s. I think it's a good idea to have variations of the official beamng cars but at other times

    considering we got the wendover with the legran, and the wigeon with the pigeon, I wouldn't be surprised if we get some platform-sharing vehicle with the mmonhawk remaster, and a 70s US compact is both underrepresented in most games, and kind of unique to the moonhawk's general construction type.

    One very important change it needs: Separate colorable bumpers like the Barstow instead of relying on skins to color them. And a better facelift because the current one literally only changes the headlights and some wheels on some versions. Also a proper police version other than the detective, with antennas and stuff, maybe a fast highway patrol interceptor. Maybe a proper derby version too instead of the derby Barstow clone we have now that doesn't make sense, would be cool to have a V8 with big stacks. Obviously a wagon with wood paneling options, and a hatchback cousin is a great idea too. More skins as well, a flames skin would fit nicely. Another idea is a 7.2L or something like this V8 for some of the high performance trims instead of using superchargers on everything. Speaking of that, more intake options would be cool. Also more spoilers and wings, we literally only have 1 spoiler. And a beater version like in WBIMP too but I doubt it will be a thing. A taxi would be cool as well. Maybe custom restomod version or NFS-like one, with everything old looking but early 2000s wheels lol. Also many mods add an offroad version so why not have an official one, with a 4x4 transfer case and lifted suspension, maybe also a redneck offroader with huge wheels that is all rusty and has random offroad stuff slapped on it and is also stupidly fast. Custom light bars and beacon lights, I doubt they will be a thing but would be cool. Pace car version maybe? Hillclimb edition? Limo? There is so much potential in this car, it would be a shame to waste it!

    I think on top of that, the front fascia should have a separate selection for the grille and there would be a few patterns to pick from (especially taking reference from similar cars which consistently changed the fascia like that annually). Also, I've noticed right now but the quarter glasses on the car are quite misshapen for the design, and the roof could do with tweaks too.
