Dear, Forum reader or Dev Team
If they make an update for the H-Series, i have some ideas of what i would like to be added.
1. A new modern van model, like the picture below
2. A utility version of the van
3. Options for what to put in the cargo area
4. More options for the cutaway model, like a bus
Thanks for reading my post.
I would like to see the Gavril H-Series Passenger Van added to BeamNG.drive.
Now that the D45 Ambulance is our box ambulance, will the H45 Ambulance be deprecated and replaced with a high-roofed vanbulance?
There's quite a bit of overlap between the D45 and H-Series now, so that would be one way to diversify the types of configurations. The box ambulance wouldn't necessarily be removed, it would still be accessible in the parts menu under the Upfit drop-down.
I think that the H-Series just needs a high roof in general, would make perfect for lighter duty ambulance, passenger van/ converstion van, and/or more cargo space.
Not necesarily, there are a few tipe of ambulances. Most noticeable, general use and a Movile Intensive Care Unit. Being the latter an advaced model desined to take care of patients in inmediate risk of death (Think someone that had a car crash and had lost an arm among other critical injuries.) It includes life support, Oxygen and the basic equipement of an operation room. The bigger H45 ambulance could be the latter, since is bigger it would make sense for it being the bigger specialiced unit and the vanster variant being the light duty model with only the basics and intended for transport in stretcher
Why would they remove one of the best configs??
(I mean they removed the Covet Beater which was even better so rip)
However, I don't think we should remove the H45 Type III ambulance. We could potentially have this as a Type II ambulance working alongside this, since the ambulance skin does work on both the Vanster and Cabster bodies.
Something else that could be done to increase configuration variety is to have different default skins for the H45 and D45 box ambulances.
For some reason, when I picture a Ford F-450 ambulance, I see it in high-visibility yellow for use at an airport, so maybe the D45 could get a skin like that. It would definitely add a little variety to the game, being the first official airport vehicle to serve the Utah or Italy airports.
I hope we see some hubcaps like this in the remaster.
Never mind, I'm stupid. The "Small Smoothie Hubcaps" are identical when used with gray steel wheels.
H series „Sherman”
Panzer would fit best on an european van version.
Previously, I was hoping for a pre-facelift version in the remaster, but now I'm more excited for the possibility of a newer, facelifted version in the future. We could even get a couple of redesigns, one from 2003 and another maybe from 2008.
Not only would it continue to tie together Gavril's design language of the early-to-mid 2000s, it could also bring us another (technically) contemporary vehicle if the H-Series follows in the footsteps of its real life counterparts by continuing production well into the early 2020s, using a design from the late 2000s on a platform from the early 1990s. This would also hint at Gavril's design language of the late 2000s and early 2010s, giving us 4 consecutive decades of Gavril vehicles.
That's not a van, that's a full on APC... I know the relatively similar Sentry APC's are based on F-550 platforms. Those are significantly beefier than the F-350, which I assume is most comparable to our HD H/D-Series frames. However, there are actually a lot of options for an armored H-Series, just not military grade APCs. Personally I'd love to see some Cash-In-Transit armored trucks in game as these are really silly options for heavyweights and can be used in some interesting missions/scenarios, though I know at least some people would find it to be too arcade-y to be doing anything silly with such a serious truck. At least we have the JATO ram plow city bus...
We can't get too crazy since we don't have a medium-duty truck platform in game to work with, but the D/H 35/45 should be enough to at least see the smaller cash-in-transit armored truck options. Some of these are visually rather subtle, or at least subtle enough that you will actually need to pay attention to notice the details. Heavy duty doors/windows, maybe a bull-bar and DRWs. For something a bit less subtle we could see a cabster with such changes and an armored box, and for something really crazy we could see something with a new body from the firewall back.
Note how from the outside this mostly looks like a Ford E-450 with a van body plopped on top but with a couple armored plates scattered around. Sometimes CIT vans don't look much different than factory stock, sometimes they have bull bars, and so on.
Note how this F-550 retains its stock-looking cab and utilizes an armored box uplift. This would probably be the easiest to add since it's more or less just a special uplift plus armored doors/glass, and can therefore be put on any uplift frame that's an appropriate size. Compare that to the above and below options which both require a new or heavily modified entire body. Of course this means it's visually rather unimaginative.
Note how both of these Ford F-350's only retain factory-appearing bodywork from the firewall forward. I've always had a soft spot for this strategy of armored truck because of how weird some of them end up looking.
With how rarely van's get facelifted, we might end up seeing this thing get a massive model year spread with only a minor facelift and a new interior or two. I think that's safe to expect, but pre-facelift is still a question mark IMO. It would be huge to see a van-culture era truck somehow, but I don't think that's really possible unless they take the Ford Econoline route and drop an entirely new body onto the platform. Of course I'd like to see that, but that's more work than I'm expecting to see just for a face-lift, especially with how much stuff it sounds like they already plan on doing to it.
Speaking of facelifts,I'd really love to see the introduction of a V6 as the engine for the 1997+ base models. I know it isn't strictly unrealistic to have i6/V8 base model engines, but I feel a V6 would be a more natural choice here.
I think that we need the Police config to be updated. I don’t think it’s been touched since it came out. Maybe it could be replaced with a SWAT-type skin and parts, kinda like the bank truck @ManfredE3 was talking about.
The SWAT could be a separate config similar to the ambulance, with a different upfit but the same lights and stuff. The police version should be heavily modified imo, it's extremely unrealistic for a police van, not heavy duty enough and doesn't seem purpose-built, just looks like someone slapped a light bar on a normal van and painted a few stripes. Real police vans are vehicles used for transporting either officers or prisoners (I imagine the former is the case for the config we have), the ones I've seen have tinted windows in the back and a retracable "cage shield" on the windshield, and obviously full interior that has double rear doors so nobody can enter from the outside on the run. Could have the taillight guards too. There are also emergency response variants that don't have any guards but instead they have a roof rack with ladders for some reason, maybe to rescue people stuck on top of something. I can't find a picture but that is a thing. Basically the thing the police van desperately needs is the interior, without it it makes zero sense.
