The ‘n’ fixture wonder has become a running joke throughout designing cars within the game. It’s typically associated with a lack of attention to detail or simply put, laziness. Given this, an idea popped in my head.
“How pretty can you make a car using as little fixtures as possible?”
That brings me to this challenge. The premise is simple:
Given only 4 fixtures per-side, make the most attractive car (sticking with the challenge’s theme) you can.
The theme for this round (given if i were to do this like CSR or CSC and pass hosting down to the next person, which likely may not happen…) is…
2014 Compact Sedan - Top Trim & Aggressive
(e.x. Honda Civic, Mazda 3, Volkswagen Jetta, Toyota Corolla)
The 2014 era roughly marks no-man’s land between the round, blobby style of the years before, as well as an emergence of the aggressive style we see today. This time around, you will be focusing on the more aggressive side, and creating the top trim of your vehicle. This means higher-end lights, trim pieces, etc. etc.
- YOU ARE ONLY ALLOWED 4 FIXTURES PER-SIDE (with the exception of wheels which drive the car, 1 license plate, 1 pair of exhausts, 1 pair of mirrors and at most, 2 pairs of door handles).
This means each plane of the car (top, left, right, front, rear) should all only have 4 fixtures. This is merely a hard limit, so you will not be awarded for having less fixtures-per side. You will however, be disqualified if any side of the car has more than 4 fixtures.
- YOU ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO USE A SEDAN BODY
As per the current round, your vehicle must be classified as a sedan by the game. Surely, the game classifies a shooting brake as a sedan for some reason, but you will be binned anyways if it obviously isn’t a sedan.
Vehicles will be judged according to:
- Design Consistency
- Era Accuracy
- Theme Accuracy
- Attention to Detail
Any engineering decisions do not matter. This is purely a design challenge.
If general consensus wants the challenge to continue for another round, i will allow it to run on a CSR and CSC-based system where the winner hosts the next round. This is all up to the entrants.
Deadlines and Submission:
The current deadline I have set is Friday, March 15th at 8:00 PM EST.
I will be judging cars slowly but surely. I have no guarantee I will get results out in a weekend, hell, even a couple weeks, but I will do my best.
Submissions should follow this format:
Model: MoME - ‘username’
Trim: Whatever you want
Engine: MoME - ‘username’
Variant: I don’t really care
I will take submissions via. forums or on Discord
please please please please please don’t resubmit unless it’s a serious problem. thanks
With that, make sure you take advantage of everything that isn’t a fixture. Finding these loopholes is everything in this challenge!
(p.s. don’t make the car in the cover picture. I know it only has 4 fixtures, but I will bin you regardless :'D)
Submissions will open tomorrow 12:00 AM EST!
I will be allowing one license plate on the entire vehicle.
Mirrored Fixture Clarification:
Mirrored fixtures count as one fixture, so a pair of headlights or vents will count as one ‘fixture’
