As always, any suggestions to rules and such are welcome! I also apologize for the delay of 1 day because of having to rewrite the whole post. Oh yeah, one more thing for those who want it. If you are planning to make a convertible on a body that is not considered a convertible by automation, make sure to message me and we can figure out your limits.
Oh boy! I wonder what perfectly cromulent car and man-made horror beyond comprehension I can send in this time.
So does he want a Camry or a track toy? One of those things is not like the other.
Must the offical body be a convertible, or is invisibility-patching another body kosher? Does a Targa roof count, in either case?
Is the Miata-looking series of bodies off-limits, or discouraged?
Fuel economy? Transmission? Power steering? Noise limits?
Well, he wants something that attracts girls. But since its performance testing and styling only, you probably want to go closer to a track toy. Its up to you though.
For convertible, the body must be stated as a “convertible”. If you do the patching thing but the body is not stated as a convertible, you can message me for extra limitations.
Ninja-edited with more questions, and one more: do I understand correctly that the car will be tested in BeamNG and evaluated according to that plus styling, while stats (other than comfort) are ignored? Or are we still expecting realistic economy, reliability, aso.?
What about retro?
Top Gear Espace? So… a perv van with a tent in the back?
Where to start? I’ll start with the miata body, no you can use it all you want. Just dont expect a very high score if you just make a car that looks exactly like a miata.
Fuel economy, transmission, power steering and noise limits rules are not really needed.
I considered fuel economy and noise regulations, but fuel economy could limit certain types of cars, and the mufflers are there to limit noise. Some cars are simply louder than others, after all.
When it comes to stats, yes, only styling and performance will be counted. I previously said comfort because Richard at least doesn’t want to break his back but any more than that isn’t really necessary.
And when it comes to retro, go for it! I did put the MG RV8 as one of the inspirations, after all.
Also, there is a reason he is called Richard.
Ooh, cool. I’ve always wanted to have a “real” testdrive evaluate my car. And 1992 is a great year. I’m excited about this, just not sure yet about sending a warmed-over existing car (an MR Miata with a boxer engine) or starting from scratch.
Why not do both? You can enter 2 cars, after all.
I take that as “he wants something prestigious for the budget, with a sportiness figure to match”.
I used to have a Celica cabrio clone that would have been perfect for this
You may be wondering: ‘How fast is it’ and we answer: it’s pretty much identical to a Miata lmfao
8.9s 0-60, 215km/h top speed, 1.12G cornering… it’s basically a miata but styled differently.
If only the license plate being put to the side was actually put to use for its actual purpose, clearing the way for an intercooler. But no, this is the shitspec. Deal with it.
The game also doesn’t believe I can cram in two reduced size rear seats without nuking the entire car. Fortunately, I have so much skill that I can cram in two reduced size rear seats. It doesn’t show up in game. But I honestly can’t bother at this point retuning the entire car for having those seats. It’s already fucked enough by being a convertible (like the weight going from 899kg to 1052kg, losing the turbo and intercooler)
For what it is, it is a screamer, with a 1.3-liter 4-banger going to the moon in terms of revs, at 8000. And a measly 110.7bhp makes sure that you’re having fun, and respecting the speed limit at the same time. Because acceleration is a myth, and top speed is a useless statistic.
I can smell the utter cromulence…
Ok but why? Is it a truck?
No, game 1. thinks its a sedan when it should be a coupe and 2. gives absolutely 0 cabin volume to the car which nukes the stats even though there is plenty of space when I 3’d the interior
Truly Auto Matte On.
Can we buddy up with other members?
How do I make the top disapear like that
Set the “roof” material in the paint selector to any transparent paint, and use a cutout patch to delete the window on the top.
Yeah, of course. Just make sure to put both names on the car.
