    stop rushing. A mod of no quality takes no time. A mod of quality takes time.

    Then go ahead try to make the same mod in 10 months, we will wait. Surely you have no idea how much time it takes.

    he's kind of got a point. 2 years is a long goddamn time. 2 years ago, trump met with kim jong un. think back to that and realise how long ago it was

    2 years isn't really that much if you think about it.

    You forgot that he still has life to live. You have to add studies, work etc. And then you get like 2-4 hours of free time a week. Now you have to subtract a few hours from his free time, so he can meet his family and friends. Now count it all and think about those few spare hours a month to work on the mod. Is it really enough to finish a HQ mod in two years? I don't think so...

    3 hours x 52 = 6.2 days. Bro doesnt even have a week worth of time to work on his mod for a whole YEAR.

    Basically the only way to make mods efficiently for this game is to sacrifise your sleep schedule, which some people do but others understendably don't.

    We have an old Punjabi sayin "Muut ki ja ki turum" (roughly)

    It means, roughly, "like piss bubbling away in a toilet"

    only this phrase can describe how gradually your interest has declined, like how piss slowly bubbles away in a toilet

    It's not your job to decide if this is dead or not





    I haven't had much time to work on the Fiesta because there has been just too many other things to do. One particular project that took a ton of time and effort was repairing a (free) Peugeot 406 which is now my first car (I got my driving license a few months ago). It had some rust problems but otherwise it was in quite good condition and the clutch and air conditioner compressor had been replaced recently. Both rocker panels had huge rust holes but luckily I can weld. The rust didn't seem very bad at first glance because it had rusted from inside out. The largest hole was exactly 1 meter long. Both front fenders had rust and the paint didn't look too good so I decided to fully repaint them and the front bumper too. There were also some other rusted areas that needed repainting.

    After cleaning, clay baring, polishing and waxing it looks surprisingly good. It really did take a ton of time and effort to get it in such good shape

    And then the Fiesta updates:

    Most materials are now PBR

    55 factory colors so far and there's still a few missing

    I'm remaking the engine and transmission since the old models were very inaccurate and honestly ugly. The old transmission (last pic) consisted of 3 shapes slapped together and looked like a deformed potato.
