    This is my 1988-1992 Volvo 240 mod. It is going to come in both wagon and sedan form. It will have a fully detailed interior as well as many tuning parts. I have a wagon and sedan model in blender and I will probably do the engine in automation. I will also try using some pieces from other cars. This has been a project that I have been thinking about doing for a while but until @KingPig06 inspired me to post a WIP. Any help and/or tips would be much appreciated!

    I like what i see, hope to see progress! Also I won't pretend I've made any jbeams before or I know what I'm doing, but i know 3D modelling and i know the theory of how to make jbeams, so with a bit of guidance i could help you with that if you see you need it!

    Also you know the Mark.IV tank mod? well when this gets released i hope i can crash it into the tank and the tank will break, thats how volvos work right? :v

    I have made the decision to hand-model anything I can. @MGR 99 gave me some tips on modeling. I have made more progress by hand modeling than modifying a model from some Russian website.

    About the engines. The 240 only came with 4 cylinders for the most part (some very rare GLT models had a V6) And a straight 6 cylinder VAG diesel, The D24. No inline 5 cylinders :) If you need any help with the technical parts, i can help. I dont know anything about modding, but i do know old volvos :)

    Could you make a list of the all of the engine and transmission options? Also for the engines could you put hp, nm, and displacement, (in cc)? If you can't do it thats fine. I still appreciate your advice. Thank you.

    Ok. You probably shouldn't make the whole body one part because you would want detachable parts like a hood a trunk and doors. Or maybe it was a body from automation also i could see the polys very well that should not apply to beamng mods
    --- Post updated ---
    also are you using the wheels from the https://www.beamng.com/threads/volvo-242-turbo-evolution.10519/ (srry i dont know how to make a link text) you should credit @Ky or i think he's dead

    Those images are old. It looks better now. The wheels are only temporary. I will post an update soon.

    I have seperated the parts but my pics are not very good.

    Sure. It depends on the year, and what country it was sold in. Do you just want the most common ones? I could help you make the engines in Automotion if you want. I dont know how to port just the engines over though. Send me a PM and we can go from there :)

    We can continue on PM if you want. But the GLT model (With the gold GLT emblems, had the B28 (PRV V6, same as in Delorean and 760) The only inline 6 in the 240 was the D24 :)
    Here is one for sale: https://www.blocket.se/stockholm/Volvo_245_GLT_V6_MAN_OVXL_MKT_FIN_ORIGBIL_82516163.htm

    Maybe a dumb question, but will this have a lore friendly version?
