I decided to make this a fully-fledged challenge, and after a few test mules, here are the rules I have decided on.
To begin with;
Import the .car file
Make a clone of the trim (and engine if you plan on adding power, which I would recommend)
Retain the model name, but put your username in the trim name section (it will say “Base Clone” when you get
Get to work
Price after modifications MUST be less than under $21500 @ 0% markup, though I won’t sweat a few $$$
MUST have original engine family
NO variant capacity changes
MUST have 4 full seats (no 2+2’s)
MUST have 35+ MPG U.S.
MUST have over 60 reliability
MUST have over 50 safety
MUST have over 15 comfort
MUST have over 50 drivability
MUST have under 50 loudness
98 RON/93 AKI is highest octane allowed (because 'Murica) and there is no advantage to using lower octane
No sportiness requirements, just go for as much as you can
Anything besides this is fair game, so don’t ask “Is adding a turbo OK?” anything I didn’t mention is allowed.
Fun Factor; I’m going to drive all entries in Beamng
That’s it, just reach the requirements
Wider tires; The original comes on puny 155mm tires
Manual Transmission; I’m going to try each car in Beamng on my G920, so manual transmission is heavily
recommended for fun factor
Vented Discs/Brake Pads; the original brakes have high brake fade when combined with higher power output
Forged Pistons; the original comes with hyper-dfjhfvsfvi (whatever it’s called) cast pistons, so upgrading to
forged pistons is recommended along with other bottom end upgrades if you plan on making it higher revving
Last but DEFINITELY NOT LEAST, there is no advantage to going under budget or getting higher
reliability etc. All you need to do is meet requirements and make it as fun as possible.
MUST have original head/tail lights
MUST have a rear liscence plate
Making it look less boring will help a lot, and sweat the small details. If you don’t have painted brake calipers, I will find you. JK, but small details like painted brake calipers may also help your chances.
If any requirements seem too restrictive, feel free to mention it.
Submissions due Sunday, August 12 at 24:00 Pacific Standard Time, so if you live in Japan you have like 20 more hours lol.
