    Nice Trailer by CaptanW

    Hello, welcome to my next thread. Currently I'd like to work on this porject, an 1994-1995 Mercedes - Benz E420. The reason I'd like to have exactly this Daimler-Benz model in game is the fact, that my father owned one of these until 2013. I really loved that car so I searched for some decent 3D models and after a little bit of research I found this one. Currently it's far off to be finnished. At the moment it isn't even suitable for the game bacause I have to merge and split some parts off to be suitable for Beamng.drive. Normally I dont create threads that early but I'd like to share here some progress I'm doing and like to show, that the work I'm doing isn't just download a free 3d model and put it in game and finnished ... So here are some pictures:

    Edit: I just wanted to give you the current Version of the Mercedes because Im now 1 week on vacation. Feel free to look for bugs (it has still some I havent fixed). With that said enjoy. but I keep on updating after my one week. see you then.

    Hi, my father had this car too, but he sold it to buy a new Land Rover. He owned it with a 3.2L TurboDiesel engine and an AMG pack. If its possible can you put that engine into the mod too? :D Just some nostalgia, the car was really good...

    all parts are renamed now, so that there are no complications in game

    now I will do some texture work and fixing model issues and then it should be ready for the first import to beamng

    okay, well, I have chosen the fullsize (gm) jbeam because it fits the best I think. Poorly I ran into a problem, that I cant export the model as .obj anymore, so I had to directly export it as .dae which is now causing in the interior some weired polygon bugs :/

    anyways in game it looks good

    --- Post updated ---
    the last pics for today; model is almost in game, deformation is nahh i would say "decent enough for a non modified jbeam"

    I've driven, and still occasionally drive one of these in real life. I hope you can get it to drive as smoothly as it's real world counterpart :D
