    I am the person you sent the not finished new update. I have a few things to tell you id like to see implemented. I think the bluebuck is a model of a chrysler imperial. I truly believe you should make the car as a whole, more solid. Even more solid than the fullsize. Also the radiator breaks extremely fast even with a reinforced support. Just what i think. Over all, awesome update.

    Thanks for the feedback. I see the front of it as more of a 60s ford. It’s already the hardest car in the game, and I don’t want to add a car that is head and shoulders above the others in strength unless I add actual imps like how I added the roundback, and even then I’d have bidwars add an option to outlaw them

    I am far from an expert here, but the Bluebuck as ships in the game is a generic X-frame, so it's very tough from some angles and very weak from other angles (and the entire side). Compare that to the Imperial which had siderails and was all around indestructible. As for length, the Imperial was 129" wheelbase, compared to 119" for the Galaxie and Impala and 122" for the 880, which is where I assume the Bluebuck is approximately.

    TLDR: Bluebuck is not an Imperial

    It's not an x frame in my mod anymore :) it's been converted to full frame for the sake of a good time. I think people get the Imperial idea from its body design, the rear trunk panel looks a lot like a box imperial and the back pillars are reminiscent of full frame imperials to me. If I were to make an imperial, I would use this car as a base, but it would still take a lot of changes.


    Similar in strength, but I think so. Moonhawk and other cars will be getting frame adjustments in the update after this one, along with full weld frames and setups

    Ok, fair enough. I didnt even bother comparing the frame i was just going off the body. But also the radiator problem still arises, also there is no gas tank relocation either. But other than those flaws its awesome.

    Something weird happened, in that the Bluebuck actually did show up in my scenario whenever it randomized. I dont think it was selectable on the list but when the scenario started one of the AI and I had Bluebucks.

    EDIT: The Bluebucks are showing up as selectable vehicles, I guess that the scenario just pulls from whatever is in the pack/zip.

    Little pro tip on making the bluebuck as hard as possible up front. The frame design reminds me of a 75-6 Cadillac so try and make the car as level as possible and put the pointy on it. I can drive a whole heat front wards and wont be bent at the end.

    Something the bluebuck def needs though is either down tubes to the frame or better body bolts in the middle of the car. The frame seperates from the body really really bad

    it doesn't really, its just because I modeled the frame too low. I meant to fix it before the update but forgot
