    01/11/2021 Major Announcement

    Good morning, community!

    Last night, we made a full-change version of the car model and showed it to you. With the release of the version, we've been hearing positive comments from the community as well as a number of critical comments.

    There were people who liked the design itself. However, most users have commented that the design of this vehicle does not match that of ETK. And we agree with that argument. That's why we're going to accept your opinion, be a little more careful, and think about it in a variety of ways, and introduce a vehicle that doesn't go against the design flow of ETK.

    I'm not asking you to forget yesterday's presentation. We presented the design with pride, and we gained confidence accordingly. Your critical views make our team grow further, and we want to turn this situation into an opportunity for development. Yesterday, we succeeded in 3D design in one day with a tremendous momentum, which seems to have made the team more united. To be honest, I would like to thank the community for giving me this opportunity.

    After today, we will continue to discuss, exchange opinions, and try to find the best design. Thank you for your valuable feedback. Also, as always, we will never give up! Thanks to the support and support of the community, we solemnly declare that we will come back with the best design. Of course, I'll communicate with you through frequent updates until then.

    Thank you very much for reading! I'll see you at the next posting :)

    I'm loving this progress!! I love the re design, but true, it doesn't really look like an ETK.

    Great luck with designing!!

    The ETK brand is extremely difficult to pinpoint design-wise, and I've got to give your team props for a bold redesign. I like where your team was going with it, honestly, I think it has a place in BeamNG as a possible "ETK 200 series" like the BMW 2 series.

    Keep up the great work, I love what you guys have planned thus far for the K-Series and I can't wait to see what your team comes up with next. :)

    Loved the redesign, but doesn't really fit the ETK name as others said. If it was under another brand maybe? That would probably suit it..

    What if you increase the "grille" size as in newer BMW's? Or not coz everyone hates the look of lungs on the front instead of kidney grilles..

    The designs are pretty great! Keep up the amazing work,

    Oh, and by any chance, will the instrument cluster be interactable with, like in the raven r20?

    I'll reply for each paragrafh :)

    Yes I agree with that, and we are finding a way right now. I think we might go with the old design I mostly used in this thread.But it is not concluded option!

    Uhhhh... I don't know how others will think but I myself will probably reject...
    ...STRONGLY ;-;
    (Just joking ^^ I'll discuss this opinion with the team)

    The raven r20. I personally did not paid that attention to that mod, so I'll look up. But like mercedes benz, or vivace, it will have a different cluster per driving mod! Further discussion is going on our discord too.

    Thank you for your attention of our mod!
    We'll keep try to create the best design :D

    Honestly for me it would be fine if you just do a new front and rear end but keep the old body shape almost the same. A new Interior would be cool though.
    --- Post updated ---
    What i really meant to say is, that you could use the old body shape and maybe give it some sharper lines or smt.

    I love the new model so much. I feel like you shouldn't name it an ETK though. Maybe an ibishu? It's giving me strong genesis coupe vibes

    Maybe an coupe version for this new car brand(I forgot its name wth, you know, the brand of Vicace. Cherrier?) will be suitable. The rear kinda looks like the hatchback version.

    Sadly, we won't use that exterior.. ;-;
    But if our team do another project, sure enough we will use that design :)
    And for the custom interior?
    Here it is :D

    Mod making requires huge patient and effort, we cannot just release the rough version to community and declare a success :)
    It's fine to ask. But I cannot cleary announce the release date, we are making this mod while doing our daily life working too, so please understand :D

    We briefly shared the idea of moving info screen like the old audi A8 did, but we faced with tachnical problem.

    We have 2 big option(as far as I can understand), one is making a jbeam itself and get it moving everytime.

    But the problem is, first, dashbord is not an detailed jbeam parts so when crashed, it just kinda deforms(try crashing your car at high speed, 200miles will do). So the screen may be floating in the air, ripped like hell after crashing.

    And second, if we make that screen with jbeam, when you crash the car it will make a thousand infinite black spear all over the world which makes much smaller part also explode and the game will broke.
    Long story short it is bad for stability of the game and hard to make with jbeam, at least for us.

    So second idea is putting html navi screen on the 3D mess of the screen and using the similar movement principle of tacho needle. This makes the movement itself very smooth and clear. Also it does not effect the collision, so there will be no failure of object colliding while moving.

    The problem is, because it will not effect the collision of the other object, the screen itself will not get any effect from the collision. So if people crash 200mph like I said before, it will go through the dashboard without any damage, and it will be there, hovering in the air outside of the mangled dashboard.

    Still working on the idea, and if it gets done, we'll definately post here, I guess :)

    This is a personal question. What is that map on your profile picture? It looks decent. I wanna try!

    i feel like you could just split the grille like on the 800 and it would instantly become more etk-ish. as for the name, someone already suggested 200 but really anything up to 400 would fit well i think

    Interesting suggestion, really. We will consider that opinion to our design & future plan too :D

    I love that new design a lot, but I don't think the issue is with the grille or lights. I think the whole body needs to be more structured for it to be an ETK. The greenhouse looks too tall and it stretches out too far forward to really look like a K series, and don't think there is a strong enough shoulder line to fit with the other ETK cars. I think it would be great as a brand new FWD based Ibishu, or even Hirochi coupe, possibly with AWD as an option.

    Keep it up, can't wait to see where this project goes!
