    • Darken the inside of the hoodscoop
    • Maybe edit the frame texture to have more variety of stuff
    • Fix dash texture
    • Create a radiator cover/grille

    As for the skins, I will not be getting anyone to make skins just yet, that will come last once the rest of the bugs are fixed

    I may be wrong, but I think the jbeam at the sides of the roof should be closer to the mesh than it is now

    You're not wrong but if I make it closer, the body shell will stick to the frame when detaching from it because the beams would be clipping through

    Have you considered making one of these next?


    It's an ATV predecessor from the 70s-80s built in NZ. Only 10 were built

    It is interesting but I don't think I will, theres no blueprints or references for it and personally I don't think it looks good

    Haven't posted here in a while
    Anyways
    Update time:
    • Fixed a whole heap of bugs and issues with duplicate nodes etc
    • Fixed dash needles for like the 3rd time but this time ive done it properly
    • I'm currently doing a complete jbeam overhaul as the first one didn't have enough nodes, too many useless beams and a lot of duplicate beams causing instabilities
    • Added 2 front panels and a radiator mesh grille
    Materials haven't broken from the update, instead it's done the opposite, the frame now looks like a proper satin/matte colour. Thanks Devs!

    screenshot_2019-12-15_22-48-37.png screenshot_2019-12-15_22-46-45.png
    To-Do:
    • Fix the duplicate steering wheel (If the problem still persists after jbeam overhaul, can someone please help me to fix it cause i'm stuck with ideas)
    • Add another smaller wing
    • Polish up suspension
    • Find people to help with skins (I don't need people until everything else is finished or it will cause complications with uv skinning and whatever so i'll let you know when I need skins)
    • Release (Hopefully before 2020 if I can)
    Thanks for reading :D

    Dude that looks totally awesome, are you going to use the 200BX engine in it for the I4 power unit or are you going full custom on it?

    Update time again!
    We are getting so close to releasing this thing!
    • Completely overhauled the jbeam from scratch which in turn fixed so many previous issues
    • Fixed exhaust model not connecting up with the actual headers
    • Thanks to TrackpadUser, the duplicate steering wheel is fixed
    • Made a different jbeam for each hood
    • Fixed an issue where the seat was causing the engine to launch out of car and do 5 back flips lmao
    • Increased steering angle a bunch
    • Darkened the inside of the hood scoop
    • Added hood scoop for every hood
    • Added a small fin spoiler
    • Remodeled and jbeamed the fuel tank as I was informed it was not supposed by a huge cylindrical tank
    • UV Mapped the front panels to allow for skinning
    • Fixed a whole ton of texture issues
    • Added beam between siderail and rear bumper when wheelbar is selected

    screenshot_2019-12-17_00-03-01.png screenshot_2019-12-17_00-03-36.png

    To-Do:
    • Re UV Map the rear of shell B and C
    • See if I can do something about the rear suspension jumping a bit when handbrake is pulled while driving
    • Then all I guess is left to do is to contact some people to skin this dam thing, make some skins myself and release it!
    Thank you guys for the kind words!:)
