thrilled you showed up in my mechanically lacking creation.
TV & Movie Car Challenge Round 11 (TMCC11): For the Spirited Driver in All of Us [Tier 2 part 2 bins]
Who would have thought side mirrors would be the thing to get me axed
yeah I feel so demotivated atm
It’s not my fault my computer broke…
Maybe I overdid it a bit to get rid of the weird looking dimensions of the W201 body, which are nice for a compact sedan, but just too small (width- and lengthwise) and too high for a full size sedan. I personally felt it gave the car a much more premium and full size sedan look by making it look longer. And I do think I kept it quite in line with the real life cars I used as an example (Hyundai Sonata Y2, Mercedes Benz S-Class W126, Lexus LS400, etc.).
The headlights are indeed a bit of a wild choice for a further clean (maybe a bit lifeless indeed XD) design. It was an attempt to really bring the car to the 1990s, instead of making a design that could just as much be from the 70s. The rear lights have been a victim of the update, as they were just clear in one colour instead of looking like you’re face to face with a tarantula.
Good to know the engine was competitive! With the general engineering, do you mean the relative simple/outdated chassis and suspension choices I made for the car? Or was it lacking in another way?
Anyway, glad I made it this far. As I’m still relatively new to the challenges. And I’m interested to see the finale!
It was a lot softer in character than others, the Munot had the same issues as well.
Also note that the E28 was a bit smaller than other E segment sedans. We’re also not looking for S classes.
Are we getting an ETA/progress report on this at all? Seems a bit silly its dragged in this long, may aswell just assume it was abandoned.
Hello, my computer was sent out for repairs mid December, and it contained a lot of the information needed for the next parts, most notably the photoscenes. So at this moment, we’re working behind the scenes to assign all the ratings. Therefore, some of the cars have already been fully rated, so all that’s needed is to tell it out in a suitable fashion.
As it should be coming back this weekend, I would then be able to take the photos needed much smoothly.
Another issue is that some people’s requests are very hard to find information for, such as the interior.
Oh shit yea, I forgot that your computer got sent off I remember now. Hnng silly moment by me .
Hopefully can sort it soon after its back!
Right when you said it, it came back, so I’m setting it up and resuming work after I transfer the files.
As in the doorbell ringed
Also I am doing my best to rebuild some of the cars that broke with the texture update, this will also help me gauge better the philosophy of the cars too.
