    This might be a major nitpick, but I think the taillights on the Gavril D-Series Truck, H-series Vans and Roamer SUV are too similar. Isn't there any way to make them more different?

    Thats like me saying
    "I dont like how BMW uses the same grille for all of their cars"
    It distinguishes Gavril from other brands.

    @BlueGinge123 You are Probably right, it's just very interesting thinking about the decision making around the modeling of the tallights for these vehicles from slightly different model years.

    I genuinely don't know if you're taking the piss or not.


    Most taillights on utility vehicles of that era were mostly boxes regardless of manufacturer. Rationale was cheap to make to pass on the low cost, and easy to design for the parts bin.

    The lights are supposed to just be slight variations of each other. All of them are American utility vehicles from around the same time frame, and it is common for American manufacturers to have their lights be the same on all their utility vehicles. Same as ford and Chevy basically have the same headlight patterns for most of their utility vehicles, gavril does the same.

    Yes, I understand that too.
    And the 2002 has the kidney (yes it’s actually called that) grille just like the new 8-series coupe will have.

    I'm guessing making the roamer taillights look more european with amber blinkers instead of red would do quite a lot

    Gavril is an American brand, not European.

    yeah, i guess, but what if they make them look different when you are in a different country much like real life. For example in the american maps they are red, while in other countries they are amber

    That would be hard to do as maps that don’t have a country like Gridmap would have nothing to go off of. Plus the game would have to tell the vehicle what textures to use when on a certain map. It just wouldn’t be possible IIRC. Some mastermind with Lua would know how probably.
