    I think there should be a real way to open the hood/trunk on vehicles. You can lower the bed on the D15. Why not other cars?

    There's so many key binds to memorize as it is and also our keyboards/controllers are getting filled up with controls. How about a My Summer Car-style system where you can get in/out of the car (only in first person) and have to manipulate controls inside the cabin with the mouse to do certain things such as set the parking brake, open/close the door(s), pop the hood/trunk open, and have to walk around to the front to pull the hood up.

    I have an idea, what if we used the number keys?

    Example:
    1 = Open hood
    2 = Open driver door
    3 = Open passenger door
    4 = Open back driver door
    5 = Open back passenger door
    6 = Open trunk

    The only time key bindings become a problem is when you want to play on a controller and would like to do the above things. Otherwise on the keyboard, unless you are constantly using all of the debugging shortcuts for the jbeam structure and similiar things there are not actually that many buttons too remember especially since the devs created all the new shortcuts for many of those buttons meaning you cant "accidently" press them when playing and also allowing you to use those buttons for other functions.

    I think this will come in time. It will just take time and work to implement across all of the official vehicles.

    Numpad keys are used for camera control. 5 Centers the camera, 2 4 6 & 8 orbit the camera and I don't know about 1 3 7 & 9
    It's early on a monday morning and I can't read or apply logical thought.

    He means the NUMBER KEYS... not the Numpad keys.

    "If you want them to open, break the latch. If you want to play "Car Life" or whatever, I'm sure there are plenty of car dealerships that would let(...)" (the end of the sentence seems to be missing)

    How about instead of keys, they could do something like the vehicle debug app or whatever it's called. (The app where you can explode your vehicle and whatnot)

    No. Keys are better. My screen is already way too cluttered with apps so another one wouldn't help.

    using the hydro in the jbeam of the vehicle's latches and just adjusting the amount until it feels right.

    the only problem is that the latches are now broken and don't close fully anymore and the doors keep opening wider due every time i open them. it's trial and error, but this is the best i've gotten since the windows break at a different limit than the doors and the side of the car where the door latches starts vibrating constantly due to the hydro's strength.

    i do have the custom wip mod started, yet i can't get it working on it due to it's my first mod and i just don't have time to do every car at this time. if anyone can finish it, it would be awesome for everyone.

    Exactly like that. With the numbers on the main part of the keyboard to correspond with specific parts of the car.

    I hope the devs see my idea, because I feel like I'm onto something.

    Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but I've edited the file you sent so that the latches don't break upon opening/closing them. Also, the doors actually open properly now, but it still isn't perfect by any means.

    I'd be glad to help out with this mod if you want me to, just not sure how much I can do.

    Update: Got the hydros working on the pickup.. Doors aren't perfect (Wobble a bit), but that can be fixed.
