    There were some forums. Existed long time ago....I'm not sure if the internet was invented already back then.

    Thanks for the tip, but "thread tools" only gives me an option to add pool. Searching for thread title edit function, not successfully.

    Thank you, staff :) But I have to ask, will renaming your thread will be enabled ? Or this can be done just by updating whole system ?

    Seems like these forums are OK. IMO it would be useful to make sections like it was you know... in the past forum. Maybe then more people would migrate here ? As it seems like happening rather slowly at the moment.

    Ok, just a random thought. Maybe it would be great to add "Forum Suggestions" thread, where users could suggest, and get acquainted with technical things.

    By the way, few days sounds quick enough.

    Goodnight ;)

    Checking in. :)

    Just want to take a second to thank you for taking on the sudden flood of AC refugees. We're still a bit grumpy about all this, and maybe not on our best behavior, but your willingness to work with us to make a new home here is genuinely appreciated.

    Also can someone change my name on here, I've been known as iVG everywhere so I'd be very happy if this continues here as well :)

    One more week, And I'll be able to continue. Meanwhile, @aphidgod is doing awesome work on physics, @iRacer5 sounds really begins to shine :) I hope you'll like it all, people. Because of me being a shameless showcaser people already seen enough of the model, but wait till you'll feel and hear it :)

    Nothing new in this screenshot, but anyway, showcasing without any shame, going to be released as WIP in this summer.

    Nothing wrong about showcasing here (not Kunos forum!), so take all the time you need, I'm sure it'll be worth it in the end!

    Looking good :)
    By the way, you keep referring to "1967". The car was completed early 1966.
    Also, the form of the car in your pictures is not of the original car. Yours is of the car after it was crashed/rebuilt after a demo run in 1971 - more than 4 years after the project had been canned.

    Cheers! (Neville?)

    You are entirely correct, of course. :)

    I believe the 1967 date is because, from a physics perspective, we've modeled the car as it was toward the end of development rather than as it was when it was first tested in 1966. I guess, strictly speaking, the car is and will always be a "1966" model.

    The decision to go with the later body style was entirely down to pragmatism - there is precious little reference available in the public sphere for a proper 3d model, and that goes double for the early body. :(

    Nice to hear from you, Mr. Neville. :)

    To everybody, Mr. Neville is the man responsible for "Building the Legend" project, which is very important for this project as well. Big thanks !

    I was in doubt when naming this thread. Visually car changed, but internally it is still 60's. If I'm right. However, after restoration model kept most of the looks, so relatively it is still very same. We'll include note about car body being restored after crash in Assetto Corsa car description.

    Pre-crash XJ13 had different fenders, and different riveting. I'm not sure about more details being different. I remember that it was mentioned in the blog that turn lights is positioned in slightly different place or angle. Was there more differences ? Would be nice to have more photos of original, before MIRA.

    By the way, I'm working on interior now. When I'll be happy with the model, maybe I'll do 1966 model as well, as it doesn't seem to need radical changes. Also it had a little less powerful engine back then, IIRC @aphidgod.
