Alzen 996 Biturbo "Turbinchen" - VLN "Special" build for the Nordschleife

b7AHxgm.jpg

WHTsvKN.jpg

This is a one-off car build by Jürgen Alzen Motorsport for the VLN championship on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. It ran during glorious times full of custom build cars, alongside old DTM and spec-series machinery, before showroom GT3 class cars took over. Speedwise this car is very ...different. Be prepared for more power, more weight, less aero, less...

Incase anyone wonders what happened between the "Beta" release last year and this release ...this is the Beta test changlog:

Awesome mod, top quality all around!

Couple of things i noticed:

"VLN" and "24hr" tags are a bit unnecessary, dont think any other car has those tags.
the awd version has "rwd" tag

suspension damage doesnt seem to be implemented? i had some big crashes (awd version) and didnt get any. Think its fairly easy to add. Hope to see the dirt and visual damage one day too, can make screenshots/videos a lot more interesting!

cheers to all involved, great project, a must have mod for sure

edit: oh and if the car is competitive with any of the official cars, you can copy the same #tag from that car to yours so that they will automatically appear as a group when making a quick race

edit 2: the 3310 and map are nice details id have never spotted on monitor!

I was wondering if it's possible to edit the Limit light to have some depth to it instead of the flat red circle that pops up? It's a small thing but it really jumps out. Thanks for the work :).

I haven't found a way to do this yet

Not much to add other than its a lot of fun - so thanks very much!

And you know what, it doesn't look at that bad really.

Also, is the AWD working as intended? I really have no idea about how its supposed to work, but from what I can tell in most cases the front wheels seem to never have a positive Slip Ratio, suggesting they are never getting any power.

Its fun regardless - can't wait for the Audi now! :thumbsup:

Front wheels get 20% torque maximum when slip appears on the rear axle, sorta simulating the used Torsen center diff. Uses the newer AWD2 code.

And thanks for the pics :)
 
Hello, been playing around with "Content Manager" and in the showroom with the collider-model switched on, its rotated by 90 degrees. Maybe this is bad for multiplayer or something?

this is just a CM bug, it reads some internal fbx value that is local as global, every collider made with Blender will appear like this. You can check with the "set editBoxes 1" command in AC, the red plane will indicate the highest point of the collider

Ok, sorry for the trouble
 
@AccAkut About the (ancient) review I gave on this mod you commented on: At the time the F1's slicks were the tires I thought were most close to what the Turbinchen used, meanwhile I'd say that the tires that are used on the MC12 or the RSS GT1 cars should be closer.

Btw my review back then was quite harsh, the FFB really is the only downside of this mod, today I'd give it 4.5 stars ;).

People get alerted if I comment a review a year later? Damn :D
The tires I used as basis were those of the M3 GT2, as the real Turbinchen ran on GT2 class wheels aswell.

Since that release I have made smaller and bigger adjustments here and there on the cars, and I plan on doing a "farewell" update of it. So far I have not done all points on both cars (near duplicate cars are double the work..), but this is what i have noted in my beta changelog since 16.01.2017:
Code:
Changelog:

- enhanced UV unmap of the main body, to get rid of overlaps and monstrosities (seeing this unwrap actually hurts my eyes now)
- new RGB Map with help of CM

- added fuelcons.ini. 7 VLN laps on a full tank

done over a couple of months, so maybe I forgot to write down things

- totally new UV of cage, AO bake and resulting textures
- totally new UV of rims, AO bakes and resulting textures
- Shader tuning (closer to Kunos standard)
- Tires more rounded
- cleanup of hood mesh
- rework of physics
-- AI
-- tires
-- collision boxes
-- drivetrain
- new previews

can't say when this will hit RD, as my priorities are both unreleased WIPs I currently have, the Lotus and the Exo Rod. And even with those tweaks the 996 looks absolutely "aged" in the visual department compared to my current stuff.

AccAkut updated Alzen Porsche 996 Biturbo "Turbinchen" with a new update entry:

996 Multilink Update & AC Custom Shaders Updates

sPXoFoQ.jpg


- rear suspension is now real 5-link Multilink, according to both '03 and '05 spec ('05 with raised upper mounts)... yes AC actually supports it without any mod, and this info reached me through the grapevines. Open the suspension app once ingame and see for yourself. Was found out during deeper investigation towards BMWs E31 rear suspension for Stingray's mod project
- general suspension tuning, dampers, springs etc
also:
- (overall improving...

Hi, is it possible to fix the "film grain" effect ont the windshield visor? It is pretty distracting. What I mean is that there is there is this weird "white noise" on the visor which moves while you drive, how visible it is changes depending on the light and weather.
