Hi everyone, It's time to give some news about mods that will be available in the future. I present you the Heolia Vendome, a Citroen DS knock off fictional car project that begun at the end of last year. This is very early Wip stage. This is why the Oldsfullsize update is not going fast, i need variety to avoid to get bored and i don't work currently on a unique project. Also, i don't like very much to show early work like this , but as a DS thread was just launched i thought it was fair to show that a similar project exists and is way more advanced already. Not the real car though. The Citroen DS is my all time favorite car and i have a blast doing this, i drool to see it working in game. It's so exciting and reminds me so much movies stunts with this car Important notice : - no release date yet, please don't ask for it. It will be released ... when it's ready. - This is possiblly one piece of a bigger project - as for every modding stuff , there is always a possibility it gets cancelled, due to life and work priorities - beta test group closed Credits: Synsol : Jbeam Sergent Fido : 3D model and textures, maybe sounds current state : - Jbeam almost finished. It's always good to have a good jbeam before polyshing the model and textures, it's motivating and a guarantee the car will be playable, should the texturing be unfinished that the car will run and drive fine. - hydraulic suspensions being worked on, for now it drives with a place holder suspension. - model of the body almost done, lacks now engine and interior details, then all the texturing. - drivetrain models done, needs details and textures. Features : - hydraulic suspensions with height control (Wip) - rotating lights with steering (done) - leather and velours interior (Wip), removable roof - 4 and 6 cylinders engine, 5 speed manual and 3 speeds automatique transmissions Design : The idea is a bit like if the DS had a last facelift instead of being replaced, so it gets a V6 engine from an italian company (Civetta ?) like the SM, and the design is mixed with this car as well : similar Headlights and interior, sharper edges on the body, hood, fenders, big taillights. To get an idea of what it would look like, i made a quick sketch : Not very well balanced nor proportioned, but it doesn't matter. Then i did two photoshop montages to see a possible result, by adding SM parts on two DS photos and painting the body to figure out the shapes : (credit to the photographer, is there is an issue sharing this modified photos to illustrate my preliminary work, please let met know and i'll remove them) Then i've painted a modified "blue print" with the new features to help build the car. only the side and top views where usefull, rear and front are not real blueprint views. But as this is a fictional car, i had room left to improvisation. that is appreciable comparing to reproducing a real car with accuracy. now you can see a bunch of work in progress pics, that i thought you could appreciate to see : And to finish, some in game screenshots. This car is heavily unsafe and will fall in parts pretty easily. With the V6 engine it's a fast car that stick the road, which make it even more dangerous. But hey, this is the 70', no speed limits on the highway in France Synsol and i we hope you like what you see for now, please understand this will take some time to be done well and also other stuff is being made in the same time.
