    I agree that it would be cool to see air ride involved, and you're right how most of the new SUVs have air springs that soften things up. The only issue I have with this is it's dependent on how the damping rates are tweaked. For almost every mod so far that's used air springs, they almost always end up stiffer than standard suspension. The LR Defender, the ETK 1300, etc. all suffer from some seriously stiff ride quality with air springs. In my own experience, I almost always end up using the rally/offroad suspension option and it winds up riding closer to an air setup than the actual air setups in game.

    That being said, I trust OP will figure it out and knows what's best for his vehicle. Happy to still see developments on this!

    Not gonna lie I think something with the air suspension inside of this game is different from what it should be in real life. I tried many different air suspension setups and damper values for the LR Defender but no option reaches the supposed ride quality.

    This might have been asked before or is already being done but since this car has a sunroof will it be optional? Like a no sunroof body option? It would make more sense on an offroad version as they tend to have roof racks
    Edit nvm i just saw finn’s profile pic lol

    ‘oh yeah, this makes sense for something like a Claria, not a 2022 Centauri. Don’t think any soccer moms have gotten into road rage yet with this.

    knew it lol


    Doesn’t make sense for a 2022 to have a derby.

    still, a Yash_gamin144 and an Ayca can dream

    I thought I’d shown it earlier on wheels and stuff

    guess I hadn’t

    here’s a few variations of it, with a Centauri silhouette;

    --- Post updated ---
    The reason it came to be is because of the way Procyon looks. It’s a binary star system, with the main sequence star in the middle, Procyon A, and the white dwarf orbiting it, Procyon B. The central 4-pointed star represents A and the ring around it represents the orbit of B.

    Major credit to @Kueso for the main idea of it, my final badge is an adaptation of his with a bit more simplicity.

    Is the star in the logo there because procyon was a star constellation iirc?
    And a racoon apparently lol

    Procyon’s the name of a binary star system, not a constellation.

    Procyon sits in the constellation of the winter triangle iirc

    later edit, it’s in Canis Minor, or the little dog. This constellation sits near Canis Major (where Sirius is), and forms the winter triangle with Canis Major and the supergiant Betelgeuse.
