Considering that they want something spacious enough for hauling, would cargo space be a one or two-star consideration? Possibly practicality, but that mostly comes from seating and doors rather than cargo
EDIT: Also, is there a preferred fuel type?
I would personally suggest dropping this to 2 in the aspiration tab on N/A engines, since they do not benefit at all from techpool sunk into that tab that should be able to be used elsewere.
Cargo space is, as far as I know, still a wonky stat so if the vehicle is in the desired size range, I will consider it sufficiently spacious.
I will update the post with a fuel type shortly.
I’m leaving the minimum TP for all categories at 5 since it is the sandbox’s default amount.
I believe what portalkat means is that by dropping it to 2 in the aspiration tab, you avoid punishing people for making an NA engine. That way people who don’t adjust their TP at all don’t get binned automatically, but NA users can distribute their extra TP around where it will be useful.
Is it 5 seats only or can we have 7-seaters too?
I’m leaving the minimum at 5. My testing was done with a spread of 5 between minimum and maximum TP with 5 as the floor. Given the priorities and ruleset, I am confident that NA engines are not punished in this setup.
If you want to do a 7 seater, as long as you have a front row of 2 and the 2nd row of 3, I guess that’s fine. It would be disadvantageous to do so but I guess I will allow it.
That’s fair. I was just thinking of as a little bit more of a balancing measure, but with fuel eco not being a high priority it’s probably ok.
Is this an absolute minimum, or must the vehicle have exactly 5 seats? In either case, those seats must be full-sized.
To that end, an (advanced) automatic transmission may well be required, or at least recommended.
And regarding fuel types, 95 RON premium unleaded should be the absolute maximum.
2004 Primus Aventura 500 Ultimate
You remember him?
Yep, that was last year. Now we can offer a new model. Sportier and more fun to drive than ever before, but it still won´t let you down offroad.
No need to pay an agency for phantaszising advert texts.
Our newest premium SUV speaks for itself. Have a conversation with it at your newest Primus Globus dealer.
Updates regarding seat count, fuel type, and advanced trim settings have been updated. With the LDU showing a new beta coming shortly, I’d like to get this rolling, so if there’s no more questions regarding the rules in the next few hours, I’m gonna open the submission window.
What is the verdict on interiors? We judging them this time or nah?
Question on the techpool. Every slot of techpool needs a minimum of 5? Can’t leave any at 0?
Nope, interiors will have no impact.
Minimum 5 for all.
This looks like a job for me B)
They are expecting roughly 290-345 hp and they do not want to shift their own gears.
I created a test mule to this brief and got in barely below $30,000 even with just a premium rather than luxury interior. I assume they are prepared to spend nearly all of their budget rather than giving much more consideration to cars that are a bit less well equipped but significantly cheaper.
Currently working on a car for this, but not feeling up to doing the visual design (used up all my visual design energy on Barbie QFC apparently), so am interested if collabing if anyone wants to.
OK, submissions are now open until September 6th, 0400 UTC.
