    ---

    CREDITS:
    - Most new parts are BeamNG's (Gabester, B25Mitch, Nadeox1) original fullsize and lightbar parts or (greatly) based on original BeamNG parts, so BeamNG
    - Myself (AR162b) for all the mods
    - Aboroath, Jujune and MrAnrgry for testing this mod and providing me with great feedback
    - Dummiesman for the preset pictures made in his showroom
    - Jalkku with his 8x8 for making me understand assigning additional keys to functions

    ---

    Known Issues/improvement needed:
    - All textures are 'slapped on' the original fullsize texture maps, adding non-smooth/multi-colored skin/texture will have unwanted results. The texture on the wagon isn't that pretty in some areas.
    - Performance class might not be correct (?)
    - The third row bench seats are a bit glitch after a heavy crash (Fixed v0.2.0)
    - Highway Partol decal on the front left door has an offset (Fixed v0.2.0)
    - The K-9 decals have a not ended deformgroup, some parts go invisible after a crash when this decals are selected. (Fixed v0.2.0)

    ---

    Long term ideas:
    - Limousine (added in v0.2.0)
    - ute
    - Wooden panels with other textures
    - Canoe, surfboard with other textures
    - K-9 cage
    - Proper textures
    - Expand the lightbar with even more lights and functions

    I have a love hate feeling with the curved c pillar. I kinda would of liked a more boxed version, however I like your version a lot. Only thing I can think of to make it better would be a vista style roof.

    Yes! Thank you, man. I remember asking about this and you delivered! Thank you so much, if I could hug you I would consider it then bail on the idea because it would be really awkward. Thank you. I think you nailed it on the police hubcaps and, personally, I think the taillights look pretty good. Also, quick question, are you making a coupe variant?

    I really like the wagon but I think the rear overhang is a bit too much, you could try making the wheelbase a bit longer in the rear, then I think it would look really awesome. I like the wagon taillights, they fit the car nicely. Anybody else has an opinion on the wheelbase?

    This is awesome. I found a pretty decent pic that shows the lines of
    the 95' Roadmaster.

    roadmaster.jpg

    Rear most pillars very thin with glass frame. The whole rear appears to taper back from the C-pillars. Will try to find an overhead shot.

    AR162B's modworks back in action.:cool:

    - - - Updated - - -

    The overhang looks a bit much but I'd like to see how it pans out after bringing the rear into it's proper "slope". Rear of the current
    build still has a lot of untweaked beef in it.

    Re: Grand Marshal Station Wagon & Police, Taxi parts

    Is it possible to see the rear of both the sedan and the wagon side by side to see the alterations to the rear lights? I can't really see how different the lights look by just looking at the back of the wagon.

    My first thoughts when I saw this: OMG!!!!!! THIS MOD IS GOING TO BE EPIC!!!!! CAN'T WAIT FOR THE RELEASE!!!!
    Looks awesome!!!!

    Question: When it is released, will it be A seperate vehicle from the Grand marshal, Or will it be inside the grand marshal?

    Op says that it will be just an addon. But with enough work put into it, i wouldnt be surprised if it became a separate vehicle, just like the moonhawk mod and d-15 mod

    Possibly maybe a shorter wheel base two door? Cabo maybe? Race car life? Ripe on the Outback Baja's vibe and go for a four sedan-up?

    Re: Grand Marshal Station Wagon & Police, Taxi parts

    Hey, thanks for all the enthusiasm and positive feedback :)

    I think you mean d-pillar? Looking at the US wagons at that time, the Caprice wagon and the Taurus wagon, I think the d pillar should be round. I think that vista style roof (whats that? Googled it and it says Ford Flex) is or 80's or modern retro. The sedan is round as well.

    A coupe has to have a shorter wheelbase, I don't wan't to go into that again. Tires and suspension are regularly updated with the game so it's quite of bit of work to keep it updated. Adding only a wagon on the same wheelbase only adds a few new files. Maybe (just maybe sometime in the future) a ute on the same wheelbase.

    Both the Caprice and Taurus have the same wheelbase for their sedan and wagon. I don't think it's realistic (cost effective) to have multiple wheelbases. The Caprice wagon is 8cm longer, the Taurus wagon only 3cm, mine 10cm compared to the sedan counterparts. Maybe I should shorten it a little bit. Thanks about the taillights, but I'm still not sure about them. Looking at the Caprice, those taillights are follow the D-pillar, maybe I should take a look at that. And maybe I should thicken the c-pillar.

    The picture you provided isn't exact perpendicular, the Roadmaster/Caprice do have quite a thick d-pillar but you made me realize they are more curved inwards at the end. (So it looks thin from that angle) Curving it inwards and thus resizing the rear window will probably make it look a bit less awkward. And indeed I should shorten it a little bit.

    Check the added pictures. Taken in blender to rule out perspective. I've added some lines to show the the line I'm not sure about...

    And a pic of a custom Crown Vic with a Taurus wagon back on it... How I don't want it :p

    Re: Grand Marshal Station Wagon & Police, Taxi parts

    I saw that CV/Taurus thing too and can't really explain the emotions I had. I want to find some overhead pics of these wagons to
    better illustrate the rather complex curvature I see in the rear end but it seems like you've got it all the way. Always nice to see
    an effort for realism. Will be fun to watch this evolve into what will be another awesomely fun vehicle.

    I can't get enough of the Moonhawk wagon and having a Grand Marshall wagon to park alongside is just insane.:cool:

    Thank you for all you do sir!

    Dude this is wicked. Glad the grand Marshall is getting more love.

    Just like you did with the moonhawk, it would be rad to see the GM get a smorgasbord of options, such as the limo, t-t op, surfboard, coupe, and so on. Besides that, also having extra engine and transmission options would be nice. Keep me comin! :)
