    The Realistic Derby Project is a demolition derby mod made by a real life derby driver, with over 2500 hours of development, investment by the worlds best drivers, and sponsorship by real derby companies including the worlds biggest show promoter, Smash It Demolition Derby!

    You can get access to the mod on Patreon here if you'd like to join the derby world - https://www.patreon.com/user?u=12838386 - There is a free, but outdated version uploaded here on the repository if you'd like to see where everything started and try it out.

    Wondering where everyone's at? The majority if the derby and RDP community are over on facebook, you can get involved with the Beam Derby Addicts facebook group and play multiplayer derbies with up to 16 others! Check it out here to join the community and compete in tournaments! - https://www.facebook.com/groups/1644855922428257


    This mod is being built in collaboration with Demolition Derby - The Fairgrounds by Bidwars, which offers a scenario in which you can derby against CPU driven cars!

    What's It About?
    RDP is a fulltime project dedicated to creating a sim of the modern derby world. Teams of national-level drivers test and give feedback to provide unprecedented accuracy in deformation based off of how real cars bend in real life. Cars have a large variety of parts so you can run classes from mild to wild, including parts from real world vendors.

    As of the end of 2020, the mod includes; Square body sedan, coupe, and wagon Crown Vics, 02 Crown Vics, 89 Lincoln Town Cars, 76 Chrysler New Yorkers, 76 Oldsmobile 98 sedan, and 76 Oldsmobile 98 Wagon. New parts, cars, bodies, balance adjustments, and more are constantly being added to the mod, with the goal of eventually adding every derby car made, so long as there is support for it!

    The RDP community regularly hosts multiplayer derbies, every night! Using Parsec to connect players to a hosts computer you can build your car and compete with others - prove you're the best driver or make a point with aggressive driving!

    https://www.patreon.com/user?u=12838386
    Patrons get regular updates, roughly once every 2 weeks!



    This mod was developed under a Ryzen 9 3950x, GTX 1070, 32gb ram. Frame drops may occur but shouldn't be significant in most cases; if you experience significant frame drops from certain parts, let me know along with your specs!

    Hey everyone, I just uploaded an update that will be live once it's approved that should solve an issue where a rogue file was messing with the moonhawk model. If you already downloaded the original file, you might need to manually delete that one. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    EDIT: Next update should also make vehicle presets available.

    In other news, I'm working on a bigger update focused on the burnside.

    Although these are more Banger type cars, These are my full contact racing/ ramp cars. Feel free to use any for skins or ideas! I know PETER BEAMO used my truck paint job in his banger and derby mod. Love seeing real life stuff put into the game!

    I've had a few people ask to add skins, You're absolutely welcome to but currently they are not going to work perfectly with creased body parts. They will get distorted and have chunks missing. If anyone knows the easiest and most intuitive way to make new .dds files for new parts, such that others can easily make skins for these new files, feel free to message me.

    Hey all, thanks for being patient with the next update! Burnside update is nearly finished but we want to get built compatibility with Fairgrounds Demolition Derby Mod in the next update.

    With that being said, which vehicle would you like to see updated next?

    Love the new Burnside body! Any chance of a Moonhawk wagon or any other body-type add-ons? Keep up the good work!

    Burnside Update is live! Lots of new parts and tweaks to this car, I've been working on it ever since release. Check the resource for changelog. There is also a new wagon body, but it's a WIP still!


    Yep, moonhawk will be revisited in the future. Body creasing needs to be redone anyway.

    To anyone having issues with the burnside not moving still, I'm working on figuring out the issue. A current workaround for another user was to rebuild the car and resave it. In the meantime, have an update pic of a MASSIVELY improved Grand Marshal (seriously, this thing is so much better now)

    I reckon the miramar could stand a fighting chance in a derby, along with the new pessima

    My current focus is getting all the fullsize cars done to a high quality first. I don't want to start on compacts until fullsize is done because there are so many compacts, it will take much longer.


    New bugs may have been introduced to the BURNSIDE and MOONHAWK with the 0.16 patch. Let me know if either of these cars stopped working for you

    Tabbing out and back in May break/fix these issues

    hi all, cracking mod, just one small problem
    when trying to acces the menus, it used to bring up a drop down with all the option (eg: all the cars in a list) but now it just flickers and I can only select it with the cursor keys which is annoying!! any help would be brilliant ..thanks

    I already PM'd you, but for anyone else that came here looking for a temporary solution, this is part of Fairgrounds Derby mod by bidwars, not mine, but you can still select options in the dropdown menus by clicking it and using arrows to change the option. We're aware and working on it though :)

    The suspension is too bumpy, the wheel bounce to the air most of the time, making driving really slow and loss of traction, please increase damping value.

    The wagon must have the same file name as the Burnside wagon mod. Would you change it, please?
