HHD Round #7: 1986-1992


#1
His Highness Demands Round 7 : a car for large families and for foreign exchange earnings.

Link to the first round and lore click me

His Highness Demands is an ongoing (for a while) challenge, that will follow the Communist monarchy Semyonovia (the only of its kind!) through 2 rulers, 5 decades, 3 wars and 1 rebellion.

Gevketovt III wants descendants! He would like a boy to suceed him but… her fourth child is still a girl… He realizes that Semyonovian carmakers do not yet offer minivans to Semyonovian customers.

He is looking for a designer to engineer a minivan to rival the best from Europe and America.



ENGINE RULES

  • Due to the fall of the USSR, the public purse is empty. Designing a new engine is not an option. Engineers will need to reuse the Decarlis D70 engine.
    HDD6 - Arn38fr - Decarlis D70.car (68.0 KB)
  • However, they can modify: compression, cam profile, fuel system, fuel mixture, ignition timing, RPM limit, exhaust diameter, catalyc converter, muffler. Each modification will be taken into account.
  • Variant year 1992
  • Two-way catalyc converter required
  • Max loudness : 35

CAR RULES

  • Trim and variant year 1992
  • MPV body type
  • Minimum trim reliability 40
  • Minimum safety 40
  • 7 seats minimum (no 5/2*)


HIGH IMPORTANCE

  • driveability
  • comfort
  • safety
  • price
  • Divide the Automation price of the car by 7.
  • Then, (since Semyonovia is full of little, cobblestone roads), apply a “wheelbase-tax”. Add your car’s wheelbase length, (in inches) to your final price. So watch how long your car is!
  • fuel economy
  • cost of service
  • passengers et cargo volume
  • Trim ET & PU
  • Variant ET difference between 1986 engine and yours

MID IMPORTANCE

  • styling
  • offroad is of slight importance as the roads are cobbled so nothing too sporty or teeth will be lost

When it comes to design “Must have a respectful reference to the Semyonovian communist monarchy somewhere in the car, i.e. calling your car the “Whatever-bit-here Persktokt Special”, after the capital, or something about the design, colors, ads, etc”


inspirations







I’ll leave these rules up for a couple of days in case anything is missing.

#2

Why not a three-way converter? Is it due to cost, or simply because Semyonovian emissions standards are well behind those of most other regions?


#3

This is quite literally csc, but 4 years earlier lol


#4

That was my first thought, you’re just doing the design and the chassis


#5

Just pointing out, man. His Highness Demands = HHD
Edit: NVM it got fixed


#6

The Communist monarchy Semyonovia don’t have money enough to pay to the US patent-holder the right to use three-way catalyc converter . :frowning_face:


#7

1992-1996 Alissa Vamo Mk. I


An American inspired Korean minivan.

#9

Hey, I’m new here, if posted incorrectly, please aim me where to post :slight_smile:
HHD7 - ARK4N | 1992-1996 Dostoverno Tekntoz
Solid, yet cheap and pretty powerful for the engine given to be used.
It packs a cassette tape system, 7 full sized seats, and a 4WD system, to help on the bumpy and sometimes muddy road.


#10

you need to post the photo of the car here, and send the .car of your entry to the host


#11

Sparsam TransVan 2.7 Persktokt Special

At just under 4,200 Dakotz (including wheelbase tax), buy something that's nice to drive and comfortable for your family, cost efficient and reliable.


It's not a Trans Sport okay?

#12

Submissions are closed. His highness will be back soon to give his choice!


#13

The request of his highness did not pack the design studios. He received only 4 proposals.
The study of the proposals was therefore… quick!

4th @ARK4N - Dostoverno Tekntoz

First of all, you did not follow not the proper naming scheme. Given the small number of participants, his highness still studied your proposal.

Strengths:

  • passenger et cargo volume

Weaknesses:

  • fuel economy (19,7 L/100 km!)
  • cost of service
  • style

Bad fuel economy et high costs of service are unacceptable for Semyonovian families. His highness therefore did not accept your proposal.


3rd @desperatedonut5 - Alissa Vamo Mk. I

Once again, someone did not follow not the proper naming scheme. Given the small number of participants, his highness still studied your proposal.

Strengh:

  • cost of service

Weaknesses:

  • Passenger et cargo volume
  • Fuel economy (15,7L/100km)

His highness did not accept your offer beacause of too small passenger et cargo volume.


2nd @GetWrekt01 - Sparsam TransVan 2.7 Persktokt Special

Strenghs:

  • comfort (from far the best one!)
  • driveability
  • fuel economy (8,9 L/100 km)

Weaknesses:

  • Cargo volume
  • Cost of service
  • Price

His highness really appreciated the style, the comfort and the driveability of your proposal but objectively the last competitor offer better met the expectations of Semyonovian families.


Winner @Fletchyboy100 - the unnammed van

Strenghs:

  • price
  • cost of service
  • fuel economy (10,3 L/100 km)
  • passenger et cargo volume
  • Trim ET & PU
  • Variant ET

Weaknesses:

  • driveability
  • comfort
  • japanese utilitary style

His highness did not appreciate much the style but he acknowledged that your proposal answer to Semyonovian families needs.


Congratulations to @Fletchyboy100

Thank you, well done all. I’m currently catching up on challenges so I should try and get one out by Tuesday/Wednesday.

Edit: Got it done a lot quicker, still room for change until tonight, so feedback is welcome on the rule set etc. Also I did not mean for it to turn into a onebox… just unlucky lol. His Highness Demands Round #8 (1992 - 1998) The People's Uprising
