    My second project is to make a ETK car (im asking community for name i didnt choosed one yet) based on the VW ID3.

    I know, i have already a project, Cherrier Amique, but i think i will cancell it because its a mess related to polyflow. One of these two should get in game, at least as testing the chasis...? We'll see :)

    Here is my progress to current car, started today:

    Polyflow is great, only thing i'd have to say is it's a tad too high poly, did you do it yourself or did you take it on a modeling website ?

    its not too high poly IMO it’s just not optimized at all. A lot of geometry just for the sake of having it. Also a rookie mistake of misusing mark sharp, and lots of shaky mesh. It’s not a very good model but it’s a great starting point for future improvement.

    Yeah now that i've taken a closer look i see that, but it's a very big improvement on his last model and it's probably good enough to start with.

    Good enough, for the jbeam you should really do it by notepad++, it's not the easiest but it's the best method and it's not that hard to learn. All you need to do is take a cherrier or something like that jbeam, put it in this mod, open the jbeam file, open beamng, tweak the placement of nodes and press ctrl+r in beamng to reload the car and update the changes.

    I dusted it and translated it using Siri. Voltage in German is 'Spannung', It is pronounced span-ong.

    Why not go with the fine german word of Elektrizitätswagen, litterally meaning electricity car. ;)

    "Hier ist der neue ETK Elektrizitätswagen!"

    "Here is the new ETK Elektrizitätswagen!"
    Would be funny for every non-german speaker to struggle with the pronunciation... :D:D:D
