    Gabester (re)uploaded this a month ago, kinda hoping this becomes the wigeon trailer theme due to the name (and also the fact that it's really good like most of Gabe's work). I can already hear it playing with close up pans of the wigeon in the black showroom. It kinda has this quirky vibe, idk how to describe it, much like the wigeon itself.

    It's more or less shaped like a wedge of cheese. In fact, googling 'cheese wedge car' brings up pictures of the Vanguard Citicar that other forum users have been comparing its styling to.


    I can totally see @gabester pulling 'Cheddar' out of the archives for use in the trailer for this vehicle, especially if it does turn out to be electric or have electric options. There's something in the drawn-out electronic tones of song that just seems to mesh perfectly with the vehicle archetype.

    Just the idea of having tire wear is wonderful!

    remember when tdev said that the graphic engine wasn't fast enought for VR support YET, it looks like we may see it soon (but not necessarily in this update) !

    It looks like revamped commercial tire textures are underway. I'm excited, and wondering if this is the finished version, or if they're going to add some more sidewall information. Come to think of it, I think this is the first time we've seen non-printed tire lettering outside of some of the larger off-road tires.

    I'm kind of surprised that we're not seeing more information like manufacturer's branding, indications of tubeless/tube type, radial construction, etc. on these tires considering that they're the only options for heavy vehicles and presumably have their own standalone textures. I think that's not feasible to do on passenger cars at the moment because several different sizes share the same textures (correct me if I'm wrong), but it might be possible here unless the team is planning some new tire styles for the T-series and Wentward.

    Dropping the pigeon would make no sense. I don't see the logic in that.

    Bond Bug style,

    CitiCar's wheel layout,

    And a nod to the G-Wiz in the name, the way they can take an entire era or archetype and fit it into one car just makes me smile. And they do it for all of them.
    I'm really glad they let loose with the styling, it looks sick.

    Also the truck's textures are better (truck looks different)...maybe a T-series revamp?

    It looks like the model quality itself is improved, some of the details differ in shape and size.
