    Hey all! I have begun creating a Generation 6 NASCAR Stock Car (2018 - Chevy Camaro).

    The model is from 3d Autosports (link below) however since it was hollow in the front and rear, I decided to add in those parts (of the frame for now!) myself. It's my first time actually modeling so it's not too great, but it'll do.

    UPDATE - June 12th, 2021
    All the panels are in-game, although the rear end and sides have yet to be redone. the material has been worked on, and now you can make a chrome car! It's fully colorable, with skin support yet to be done.

    Next up:
    - Windows (removable plastic panels)
    - Undercarriage
    - Interior
    - Powertrain
    - Engine / Engine bay
    - Suspension

    Stay tuned!

    Current pics:




    UPDATE - June 3rd, 2021

    Although it's only been one day, I worked for nearly 8 hours straight to get more panels in-game. (Missing from this screenshot is the right door that I added in just after taking it)

    Despite being quite stable, there's still plenty to go before it is fit enough to move on. I am still learning how to make good JBeam, and even today alone i have begun remaking the jbeam of a few of the rear components for realism and stability.

    Model-wise, there's not too much to say other than that I split up the single body piece into the different panels I will be adding in. As well as this, I thickened the panels so the textures show from both sides.

    That's all for this update! Thanks for reading, stay tuned for more!

    ORIGINAL POST - June 2nd, 2021

    Most of the rest of the model is already done (from what I downloaded) however theres plenty of tweaking to do.

    Before (only frame):



    After:



    The frame also has a fully custom JBeam in-game with the model appearing:




    Only the frame is in the game right now, but the body is going to be put in here real soon.

    The frame deforms somewhat well in normal collisions, though theres definitely a long way to go before it's fully good.

    Anyways, thanks for reading my post! I'll certainly update y'all with more in the comments, updating this post, and also on my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxZ8KwRzq0gsZ97atqBFK-w

    Progress update:
    I have not added in more parts since the last progress update, however I am learning about the textures, materials, and have redone the jbeam for the rear end body panels, and organized things a lot. I have fixed some aerodynamics, tweaked some values, and I have to say the whole car is functioning a lot better now. Of course, as I'm still learning, I have not made a jbeam ready for finalizing the car, so once I get some bigger things done I will probably go back and redo a lot of the jbeam again. But I'm happy with it for now. My goal for the rest of the day is to (maybe) complete the body panels and get them in-game, but I likely will not get that 100% done.

    I'll let you guys know once I get more progress done! Thanks for waiting for this progress update, and thanks for reading! (No new pics to show yet!)

    Learning is the best kind of progress, because it means the rest comes easier :)

    So true! Since this is my first mod, learning is all the more important to bring everyone a nice, quality, completed mod that everyone can enjoy. And I em determined to get this done... I've learned some modeling just to fill in the empty space that this model has.

    The best advice I could give you is: take all the constructive criticism you can get but ignore all of the blind hate you can get
    Some people here look down upon any mod that isn't dev-quality (ironically most of them can't mod themselves) and as a result this place can be pretty toxic but if you focus on the genuine advice given by people who know what they're talking about you could make this already good-looking mod even better

    Thanks, I'll certainly keep this in mind! I've been on this forum for a few years so I've seen a fair share of some of the toxic people.
