    So hello everyone and welcome to the place where everything starts...

    I have decided, after some long time of thinking, that i want to make something on my own. It is my first time in the BNG Modding.
    So, my plans are to make something, that may be reminiscent of a 2nd/3rd generation Mitsubishi Eclipse. My base for the car will be a K-Series' wheel base + 90's Pessima or Sunburst's drivetrain (haven't decided yet really)

    I didn't really ever had any bigger experience with model creation (small stuff mostly, not entire car), so currently the project is using literally 3rd gen Eclipse (scaled to fit K's wheelbase) as a body. Nothing to worry about though, as i'm going to make my own body basically from scratch, based on what is here + some other things (i mean if you make your own, its easier to understand what is what, also obvious copyright reasons, even though site says its royalty free, better be safe).

    Here are few screens of how it currently looks like + proof of it being fitted to K-Series' wheelbase. Nothing really special yet, as i said.



    We'll only see what does this journey lead to

    U better decrease the strength of that kerr right there. The Eclipse was definitely not as tough as a K-Series

    better make sure its not as high poly as the Royalty Free one you downloaded.
    that's not good for crashing in beam.

    Try applying smooth shading in the left menu, will make it look cleaner.

    yeah, that one is from the linked site, as i have said - i will do an overhaul, to make the car not just full on Eclipse's copy (like ex. Prasu), but make it have its own character. Obviously during that, i will lower the poly amount

    Thanks for moving the thread to whoever did it.

    So i've started to kinda make a line for the car body. I also decided to use the 90's Pessima body elements.
    "Storywise" it can be explained by the fact, that both cars were made both by Ibishu, and in simmilar time period, so they use Pessi elements to cut down the costs a bit.
    I've also moved everything to ZModeler, because it's just easier for me to use this than Blender.
    You can also see, how complex the original model is - the reason behind me creating new one instead of available one


    The second one looks a little... 300ZX-ish

    Who knows, Police version is rather the one, that has to appear on 90% custom cars if not more... I'll think about it

    Cya, gotta continue the modeling :D

    First body parts are being done, here you can see a roof (WIP), and a hood, fitted to the body

    I also thought a bit about possible configs, mostly inspired by existing 2G/3G Eclipses (and the Pessima)
    - The obvious ones (Base, "X engine" Base, Beater...)
    - Sunroof & Convertible
    - Police Config ;)
    - F&F Inspired version(s)
    - "F&F Wannabe" (aka. RiceRocket)
    - "Elite" (yup, one of those crazy NFS World builds you got for the premium currency)
    ... and for now that's all configs i think are good to appear.

    ... and yup, i know this will take long time to model entire body while being a begginer...

    So for now, i gues i have nothing else to say, i'm going back to the model, cya :)

    The part of roof from before, just finished now. (the entire thing goes black, but that's due to polygons being like "turned the wrong way" (a.k.a normals - so i won't be called out for being a newbie :V) - that took few hours to do. OK, that's all for today, see ya

    Okay, so currently there's not so much progress going on, and there are a few reasons for that
    1. The free time i wanted to use for the modeling has ended sadly/happily. Currently i have a few more free days too, but...
    2. I got a few things going on, that i have to complete before taking some more care of the car

    And i haven't posted progress, because tbh there wasn't that much of it.
    I want to also make a bit of a design mockup, because i currently have tons of ideas, that just have to be materialized in some way so i don't forget about them :V

    i honestly hate this gen of the eclipse, but it looks like your creating your own type of thing, and im glad.
    looking good so far, and take care IRL
