    Digital Dashboard Tutorial






    Features
    • Original fictional design
    • Fully custom physics skeleton
    • Interactive multifunction digital drivers display
    • Much improved overall quality vs the Raven R60 :)


    Trivia
    • The 4cyl engine found in the base model is the same unit found inside the Raven R60 Sport model.
    • The outer dimensions of the car are quite similar to an MX5. However, not all dimensions are the same, the wheelbase for example is longer with the wheels pushed further towards the corners.
    • The Raven R20/R21 is a front-mid-engined vehicle.

    Looks Like a ps2 car. At the front. In a good way. It feels like nostalgia. I like it. Some textures and places feel underdone. BUT still awesome well done :)

    3/5,
    Version: 1.2
    Looks: 4/5
    It looks a little bit low poly compared to vanilla cars, with lower quality modelling and textures, but overall, it is quite good
    Features: 5/5
    I don't think it's missing anything in terms of the car's functionality, it goes above and beyond
    Crashing: 4.5/5
    It is almost on point with vanilla cars in terms of quality, only thing holding it back is how the front parts are very prone to clipping compared to similar vanilla cars
    Content: 4.5/5
    It has a few confligs and a bunch of different parts, but it is below vanilla cars in terms of the amount of content it offers. It falls a bit short
    UI: 3/5
    Preview images are mismatched and don't match vanilla cars. I feel like the R20 and R21 should be in different categories if following vanilla naming conventions (unless the name was changed to Raven R-Series) it gives the mod a very shabby look.
    Overall: 4.2/5 - It's a keeper for me! Very nice car and mod.
    Other:
    I deducted one star because of the paid content. I am sorry, I am glad you released this, and I appreciate your work. I am the kind of person who would donate if this mod was very, very good, even with no reward. I can also underestand allowing patrons / supporters to beta test or get early access, but paywalled content isn't the way to go, and i, as well as many others, don't want it to fester on this community

      Thanks for the review,
      The background colours are mismatched to more clearly show which configs are R20 vs R21.

    It's a nice mod, but really just doesn't live up to the quality of most Beam mods today. And that's fine, as I see people pressure people to make "dev quality mods." But I feel with some polishing this could be made much better. Textures and shading just doesn't do it for me and some parts of the model are rough. Love that you are still introducing the paid part, but I believe this should be better quality and have more paid content to warrant that. Anyways, thank you for making this pretty cool mod :)

    I've been using this car for about 5 months now so I'm going to try and be as constructive as I can here. The J-Beam is remarkably good, considering you really aren't getting any help from anyone. It's by no means as good as a vanilla car but that's to be expected. The model itself is well made, I have tried to make one myself so I know how difficult/ time consuming it is. My only problem is the cars appearance. It looks like an automation car. The lights look as if they are pasted on instead of actually part of the car. I hate to say it but it's even more apparent on the R21. Then there's the shading. It looks very flat and plastic like. I think if you update these two things, the car will look much better. For now though, I think it's worthy of being a CCF2 competitor.

      The R60 will continue to get compatibility updates and minor feature updates to keep it working. But no major updates are planned currently.
