2005 Ford Transit 1.0

that van from Top Gear

    Not quite sure I believe it, but apparently this is finally finished.
    So if commercial vehicles are your thing, this one is for you. Go get it.

    If not, never mind. More non-van content from me to you soon (none of which would have been possible had I not learned how on this silly van… so there’s that).

    About:

    Hefty box. Has everything it should, so 4x LODs, dirt/damage (not great looking but nevermind), interior/exterior lights, proper animations (with a few extras), the full shebang. Its still a van mind you, so don’t get your hopes up.

    AI don’t seem to be in any particular rush, tried to get them to hurry up a bit but that’s the best they can do. If you can’t beat them then I’m so sorry, my condolences to you.

    As for ‘that’ Nordschleife time, don’t expect to beat it straight away. Remember this is the ‘pre-modified’ version; which means no weight or drag reduction, no slipstream to follow, and no pro-driver pedalling it. So you should be aiming for the 10:23, not the 10:08. Maybe a little faster as we don’t have plebs in Porsche’s to navigate passed. If you still can’t beat that, then my condolences to you once more.

    Big thanks to those who did some testing these past few weeks to ensure (fingers crossed) there are no issues.

    I also really appreciate the huge number of guys who have helped out in any way over the period this project has been ongoing over on the AC forums or here on RD, especially in those early days when I had literally no idea what I was doing (arguably still don’t).

    Please be nice and don’t edit/modify, rehost, sell, rip/convert any of this (2D/3D/Physics/SFX) without asking.

    I know some of you will be dying to throw this in your ‘cAr TuNer!!1!!’ app, but if you could refrain, that’d be lovely – some toastier versions of this will be coming in future that should fill that hole...

    Finally, if you’re still not convinced (I don’t blame you), then check out these videos which give a decent overview of what you’re getting into (I wouldn’t listen to the first guy though, he speaks a lot of nonsense):

    Brings back all kinds of nightmares from work where I used to drive these things. Which just goes to show what a high quality piece of modding this is.

    Love it... just one question, how do you get the onboard timer?
    1. garyjpaterson
      Author's Response
      Should be somewhere in the setup menu - Generic, Stopwatch, 1 - something like that.

    So much fun to drive it on Nordschleife.
    But the turning signals don't work with the Custom Shaders mod?

      Author's Response
      Yeah this was made before I'd ever used the shaders patch. No promises but I'll look into adding turn signals for the update.

    Lovely van! Now i can carry spare tyres if i need a change of tyres in the middle of a track. Also, have you heard of a Transit with an XJ220 engine? would you mind making it?

    Subjective - 4.5, mod itself almost excellent, but i prefer left steer version, regardless of Tope Gear influence.

    Thank you so very much Gary.

    It is great fun to drive and the details are excellent. It is very easy to tell that it is a labour of love. Thank you for sharing it with the rest of us.

    My only gripes are/where the sound and that I haven’t figured out how to change the “CLEAN ME!” in the dirt. It ought to be something like “Vask mig!” or “Find en vaskehal!” for me Danish skins.
    ACFAN has taken care of the sound with his mod so that is all good.

    I look forward to the many hours I will spend driving the Transit.
