    I can barely believe it, but finally after almost 16 months of messing about with AC Modding, I’ve finally call myself ‘a modder’! :D

    It’s not perfect, and from what I gather it’s certainly not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s my creation and I’m proud to release it into the world after just under 4 months since its creation (feels like much longer). There are issues (a little bit twitchy to drive at times, model lacks detail in some areas and too much in others…), but I think it’s not too bad for a first release.
    (And let’s face it, it’s fictitious and designed by me, so I can’t exactly be wrong now, can I? :p)

    I won’t go into too much detail about what this car is and isn’t, I’ll let you discover that in your own time – but feel free to check out the description in-game or the information files in the download if you want to learn more about the car.

    Finally, I want to make clear, the main objective of this project is for pure enjoyment – I’ve certainly enjoyed (almost) all of the development process, and if just one person enjoys driving it then I consider it a success.

    -----

    Special thanks to the great community here at RaceDepartment (the "What Are You Working On?" Thread :D) – all positive messages, constructive feedback and great advice from experienced members was greatly appreciated and kept me motivated.
    Also cheers to those helped with testing duties and offered their time and opinions to help improve the final product, your assistance has been invaluable!

    -----

    • Gearshift Animations (first attempt was crashing the game)
    • LOD C and D (Only a LOD B for now, so performance with multiple AI isn’t perfect)
    • New skins/liveries (if anyone is able to make some cool skins, I can include them in future updates – sorry for the bad template!)
    • Tyre texture (will come when I make the Transit S2 tyres – same texture)
    • Visual Damage/Dirt implementation
    • Static Windscreen/Interior Reflection
    • Potentially a new wheel (rim) model to replace the generic ones I have now?
    • Maybe some tyre physics tweaking (specifically thermals)
    • More optimisation (textures)
    Enjoy!

    I was skeptical about this car when I downloaded it, even with all the reviews here. Just took it for a spin around the ring in VR, and I can't tell you how fun it was. Like others have mentioned, it's hard to believe this is your first mod. Incredible work!! One of my new favorites.

    I finally had time to give this little beauty some spins.

    What a fun ride. I tried it out on my first very much rubbish version of Nisseringen and what a joy.
    Now I will step up the speed on that project. I want to try the car there.

    I have to agree with the sound being painfull, at very high revs. I felt it at Highlands. Normally I run AC with a system volumen at 40, here I had to turn it down to 30.

    A very great piece of work Gary.

    I look forward to your next release.

    Unless you plan on giving it guns and making it fly! lol
    Congratulations, a job done extremely well!

    Long-awaited Dallara! Followed the development and was looking forward to try it. It's nice to finally sit inside. And what a great result! Sound, handling and attention to detail, great product you made! Congrats
    I also think it's way passed the "0.1" version ;)

    been downloading mods for AC since release ...by far this is the best mod to pop up here , but one thing bugs me is why would you not give it an original name ?

    The fact that you named this mod version 0.1 actually offends me ! It is way past 0.9, it is brilliant and you created it from completely nothing, well done ! Model is very nice and I'm really impressed by sound, superb success with sound. Physics are always #1 subject in AC, and I think it is a blast, I feel like I'm really doing everything and car is listening to me, it feels like early 90s supercar IMO, and I love it - it is car and not a spaceship after all. It has some problems with coasting, but if you have at least a little idea how to adjust differential, then there is no problem because it is totally adjustable. 10/10 car, I'm honestly impressed.

      Haha, I didn't want to name 1.0 until it is as fully featured as a Kunos car, and I felt 0.9 gave little room to improve so...
      Anyway, thanks - your input throughout was invaluable :)

    Really nice mod. Amazing 3d model, nice sound. But handling is very bad on the rear .
    It doesn't make fun to drive with the currenct physics
    1. garyjpaterson
      Author's Response
      Could you go into some details please? Do you have an actual problem making it hard to drive, or do you just want more grip? Because its designed to be a low grip machine, and perhaps its just a case of practice makes perfect :)

    Wow, incredible. Thanks! Just one thing, could you please make a KM/H cockpit version too? It's a Dallara(It) /BMW(D), we use KM/H overhere instead of MPH;)
    Or did I miss something and is it ajustable?
    Cheers Robin_NL
    1. garyjpaterson
      Author's Response
      Yes, I'd actually mewnt to do this before release, but had forgotten! Will be fixed for a future update - will either be km/h or will match the user settings.

      Thanks :)

    Mod car of the year ...ok, it just started, but this while be the yardstick to compare against. The exterior and cockpit are so well modelled and textured, custom sound, perfect drive- and "chuckability". Throw it around a short curvy track for maximum fun.

      'Chuckability' - I like that :)

    I have been following this gem since you first posted about it on reddit, it's a top mod. I prefer real cars over fictional, but this one is such high quality I don't mind at all. 6 stars :)

    PS.: I am okay with the glass, feels like an F-16 :D

    I usually don't download "0.1" mods, but "Sounds by Modek" and the unusual design intrigued me too much.

    First things first, the audio is as amazing as expected. :D

    It feels more like a 0.9 beta release by the way. I couldn't find any obvious flaws in the 3D model and the physics are really good. Some twitchiness should be expected. It feels just like it looks: Ariel Atom-ish.

    Can't wait for more updates, that thing is amazing.

    You should remove the Dallara reference though. Make your own, fictional brand. It's your creation and should you proudly use your name.

    Awesome little car. Looks great, sounds great, drives great. Usually i'm not a big fan of fictional cars, but this one is really cool. Only thing it's missing is a little wing on the front to prevent untersteer in high speed corners :)

    Very nice car, well made, lots of details. Good sound too, and best of all, it drives really well, big fun. Though I don't like smudgy glass while driving, this is a bit too clean, looks like an open cockpit. Not that I would mind if you leave it like it is.
    Thanks for the -no doubt- hard work.
    Only did a few practice laps for now, but I guess AI knows how to drive it too...
    1. garyjpaterson
      Author's Response
      Thanks, I'll hopefully get a static reflection on the interior so help make it seem less invisible.

      And its a tricky car to master - Diff controls are your friend, and I find keeping a touch of throttle helps instead of lifting off completely to help keep the car stable.

      And yeah, I struggle to keep up with the AI in this too :)

    Incredibly good, many moving parts, and functional, pleasant to drive, and see it in repetitions, many details lights panel information, etc., .Last that from the interior view does not appreciate much the glass, something dirtier would be fine, only is A suggestion, but this perfect, is a complete mod. Good work and thanks for sharing.

      Thanks very much.

      Yeah I'm considering some development for the glass in future :)
