the Hoppigeon takes shape...
From the back reminds me on new Honda CR-V.
the back remindes me of a volvo v90
will it be detachable when crash hard?
unfortunately not yet, maybe something in the future.
A new area for the CrashHard 2.0 map......
Fixed the horrible stretching from the wheel UV map, and did some work on a new tire model. Tire has plenty of stuff to be cleaned up, UV map and a stretched out version is also missing, but it looks surprisingly good with just the default tire material.
Whats it called?
Holy god this looks amazing!
Diesels come back again

Probably a bit late to be posting these now that the mod is out, but here are some development snapshots of Lakeside Raceway's terrain and roads:
First, here is the basic Lidar terrain surface imported as .fbx from CloudCompare:
The road surfaces from the raw Lidar scan are a bit too noisy to be drivable (although the grass and dirt has a perfect amount of bumpiness) so I need to lay down a smooth road base mesh which will be rendered into the heightmap. I use a shrinkwrap modifier to project it onto the terrain level, and then a subsurf modifier and a smooth modifier to control the amount of smoothing (we don't want the road to be perfectly smooth, after all).
Now that the road base is established I can add the real road mesh which will appear in the game. This gets shrinkwrapped (via modifier) onto the road base mesh, with a vertical offset of 3cm to give the edge of the asphalt a realistic height. As you can see in the image below it still clips through the raw terrain surface in a few places, but this doesn't matter since that part of the heightmap will be replaced with the smoothed out road base.
I've aligned vertical imagery compiled from Google Maps to match the scale of the Lidar scan, and use it as a reference to place roads, buildings and other features.
That's all for now, but feel free to let me know if you'd like to see more development steps for this project
Great timing with the track and the car
Yeah, its a total coincidence too. Strange world we live in eh
A new suspension testing area on the CrashHard 2.0 map
hmm what it could be...
Render from last week, but it looks kinda cool and I'm not doing another right now. Been primarily focusing on the jbeam lately, still a ton of work to do, it's just a very simple mesh at this point.
