    This is a parachute concept still needs some work maybe I will make it deployable or put it on a dragster.

    How do you plan on attaching it to vehicles?

    Looks nice, but i guess the car needs more parachutes than just one.

    No there are enough parachutes but the shape needs improvements.

    Great thread. Lots of info on this project you're working on.
    I mean, you did post a similar picture in the dev screens thread where the post was just a picture with the words "Concept vehicle"
    I'm glad you posted this thread with more information and not just have it be a crosspost from the dev screens thread.
    :rolleyes:


    Honestly dude, you have a lot of passion and do some great stuff. I see so many posts from you in the dev thread. I wish you worked more on polishing and releasing your finished cool stuff instead of releasing skins and mods for base cars with public service lights added on.

    You've got a lot of skill. I suggest you work on your own vehicle, or maybe a conversion from another game, or finish this project and have a vehicle that can deploy a parachute. What you just posted isn't much different from your dev screens post and I get you want more attention, but it just isn't that interesting. I can't wait to see what stuff you do in the future, but now it seems to me (the end user who's not in your modding group) that you don't release a lot. I love seeing your posts in the dev screens thread and I wish you were more dedicated to showing off groundbreaking, cool things and then releasing them.

    Please take more time with your mods and the threads you post about them. In this thread alone you could have posted about what you still need to work on, what you would need to be happy with a release. It doesn't peak my interest when you just post a thread solely with pictures. I want to know about your trials and tribulations, the things you are working on to make your specific project perfect, and I don't see a lot of that from you. I think you're so talented and it kinda upsets me that you aren't taking it to the next level.

    If you ever doubted yourself: You are good enough. Work on creating ground-breaking shit and release it. We all want to play around with your mods, you just need to add some polish. I hate seeing so many of your posts in the dev screens and never see you release anything but cop and fire skins for vanilla cars.

    You're so much better than this, I know it.

    I'm working on a few conversions.
    The only thing that stops me from making a car is not knowing how to suspension.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Not much but I think it Will be more after double sided coltris are released.

    Wouldn't the parachute always be creating full drag, even before deployment? I know Drive supports airflow, but since the dragcoef never changes, wouldn't it constantly produce that drag?

    A parachute wouldn't work like this IRL, because where will the air go? There needs to be a hole on the top, or you will, spin like a 6 year old in an office chair:p
