Service costs: it can’t be too expensive to maintain
Drivability: it would be nice if the officers didn’t have to wrestle the thing
Safety: this car will be seeing some serious speed, so it better be safe

Offroad: it needs to be able to do at least light off-roading
Comfort: It can’t be back breaking, but it doesn’t need to be a rolls royce either

This is a very laid back challenge, resubs allowed and I will fix any rule breaks (except for body type) if it doesn’t cause warnings

Edit: hatchbacks and estates are now allowed

Is the country of origin rule based on some real rule or just the US police only having American cars? I genuinely don’t know, the rule just seems very limiting.

Yes afaik the us does require cruisers to be cars made in the country, and many other countries like Japan or Germany use locally made cars
but, I might remove it because some countries use foreign cars

Edit: country of origin restriction removed

I know the restriction has been removed, but; there’s more countries that don’t produce a car than countries that do.

I guess I’m mostly just wondering what country exactly this is supposed to be taking place in… (I have no idea what Gasmea represents)

I’m pretty sure Gasmea represents the US (hence the “gas” in the name).

Gasmea is US and the EU, depending on what region.

Update: pickups banned (it was an oversight)

Two questions

What kind of seating should we be going for? would +3 seating be enough to simulate the basic rear seats found in American police cars or do you want full seats in the back?

Also this would be my first submission to an automation competition and I’m wondering what the stance on workshop mods is? it seems like some people are including them in other submissions on the forum but I can’t tell for sure

Either will do
Workshop mods are allowed, recommended even

That was the impression I got, thanks for the quick reply!

How do I submit a car?

sent you a dm

There’s no price cap per vehicle (or for the whole fleet), so what value (in AMU) should we be aiming for?

Have a look at the three star priorities again, pretty sure that’s implying it’s up to you to work out.

I’m on my phone right now so i can’t know for sure the amu value, but generally you should aim for no more than $43,000 USD, cheaper is better but a cheap car that’s worse in every way won’t win

can we make mid engined cars

I don’t think so, even though there are no explicit rules regarding engine placement. Nor would I assume that rear-engined cars would be allowed either, given that all of the inspirations are front-engined.
