    I need to know whether or not this bumper is good enough to be released and not messed with or if it still needs to be refined, it is for the D-series

    Not bad. Looks decent as is.

    Although it seems kinda heavy and also seems a bit on the strong side. Just look at this crash test between a mod 1958 Chevrolet apache and the D series with this equipped at about 20-25 MPH;

    The mod I am using is strong enough to leave a very noticeable dent in a D series from a crash at that speed. I may just be missing the point of this mod but I felt like I should post that.

    And for reference with the weight;

    If this was on the mods page I would rate it about 3/5. Its something worth keeping but it could use some refinement. And not to mention the JBeam could be tweaked a bit more in places to better fit the bumper.

    Good luck and I am looking forward to seeing more work done on this :)

    **I should note that for anyone thinking that the Apache is still a low quality "russian" mod, The version tested here is one that has been worked on substantially by me and is significantly more on par with the stock cars than what I started with. However it is not up for release and I do not recommend anyone try to find the "original" as for the original is no longer compatible with BeamNG.**

    I like the methods done here and the information given

    Info on what I know about the bumper:
    It is supposed to be aluminum......thats all pretty much, and that it goes to the frame
    What I don't know
    The weight
    and how it handles crashing

    The jbeam although highly changed in terms of where nodes are is based on the D series offroad bumper
    When the reworked jbeam (which I am a nub at doing jbeams) comes it should be much more realistic in the way the bars handle crashes, when the reworked jbeam comes I will do part of the model over again, specifically the bars I feel they are to complicated for the size of them

    Here is a third version of the jbeam, I believe most of it is just jbeam work, I did some work and it took me longer than it should have due to other things
    BE SURE TO DELETE THE PREVIOUS ALIBUMP FOLDER

    In this zip folder you won't have to do anything you won't even have to disable the base rcgengines mod if you have my mod

    I will link it here: https://www.beamng.com/resources/6-0l-6-4l-7-3l-v8-diesels-for-d-series.1947/

    In the previous test folders you may have had to disable my mod
    also at some point I will get all the zips here and fix them to where you can test each version without needing to disable them all and only have one active
    Really that is what I should be doing but I am being a little lazy since crash testing is the #1 priority

    The weight I am still a little iffy on what it is supposed to be
    The bumper is made of aluminium and is made by Ali-Arc
    It is a close replication and mind you this model was made for another game (spintires) and is my very first model basically

    This is somewhat what the bumper is supposed to look like
    Really shows how bad I model XD

    EDIT: Attached Zip

    It's refreshing to see someone asking for feedback, and learning along the way. :)

    I'm so used to "HELP, NEED JBEAM", or people being so overwhelmed by it that they just complain / don't start.

    I am learning???? whaaaa (just kidding)
    I really need to start from scratch on the jbeam but I am working on other things hence the big ol wait on the V3 zip
    V4 should have the scratch made jbeam and guess what else......A STICKER :D
