Probably first thing to say is what car it is: middle size 4 door sedan with inline 4 cylinders engine and leaf spring suspension on back, which are was exported to Finland. This by the way fits description of car, which will be in My Winter Car, so this mod is completely realistic and atmospheric.
Since 2016 I periodically try to make a car mod, but since result did not suit me, past attempts ended up in recycle bin. This mod also was one foot in a recycle bin, but I decided to finish it. In some things I stuck into limitations of Mod Loader (playmakers for example), some things I didn’t do to save FPS. But this is best mod in category of replacing/adding a new car that you saw.
Initially car is near the house. Body and interior color can be changed in Assets\GAZ24 folder.
Models, textures and sounds from DayZ SA.
1. After saving the game, objects that were in the car will be on the ground;
2. When fueling indicator bar shows value for original Ferndale;
3. Automatic transmission - this is fail with choose base to replace. But overall this is not a clean first generation, also author of model put a model of engine from Niva, so enjoy custom work of father/grandfather (very common for these cars);
4. If mirrors not work - you need load game with enabled mirrors in game settings;
5. Second Ferndale mod not compatible with this mod;
6. Body of original Ferndale can be damaged after loading this mod;
7. Some people have problem with doors. If you have this problem - use this GAZ24.dll (wrong opening pivot, but correct rotation).
How to install:
0. You need have Mod Loader
1. Copy with replace GAZ24.dll and Assets folder to Mod Loader mods folder
GAZ24.dll with handling and sound from Ferndale
