    Anyone working on such a mod ? I know that there is nissan primera out there but I would like to know if someone is working on full season, it would be literally dream came true. :inlove:

    I think you are seriously underestimating the work needed for a mod of that size

    He don't works on some specific 1998 BTCC Cars
    The Primera is from 99 and the BMW wasn't a BTCC car in 98.

    In fact to create, and update such a pack you will need a big team, data are not so easy to find so its hard to replicate not one but a complete field :V

    I was just curious if out there is such a project or I should dream on forever :D Because I saw primera so why not to ask if anyone know something .. and I think I didnt say in my post that its easy to be done. duuuudes :D...

    Mods are based on real data or just on the personal feel ? Which I believe that 2nd option is the most common.

    Well I think its all about personal taste, some prefer to dig and find real data and other not. In both case it's a hell of a job :roflmao: !

    if you love the primera ( like many of us i guess), you should follow Patrik Marek ;), you'll discover more btcc cars ;D

    IMO it's easier the more real data you have. For my Porsche I had a bunch of numbers (spring rates, aero distribution, AWD split etc) which made it easier to work along. For the Audi I have way less (weight, dyno plot, gear spacing, lap times) You need to have a good idea about which range values need to be to make it from scratch. I used my Porsche stuff as the basis as I know that the Audi uses lots of Porsche Cup parts. It seems to work out so far.

    IMO its easiest if you just make the whole car up from scratch, then you don't have to worry about such things ;):p

    Well im not a modder and some mod cars dont work or have issues in Assetto so im using Content manager and car tuner to solve some issues and make them work for now going fine changing sounds puting some tune still trying to learn the Car tuner software as can change the car pysics and finding compatible tuning.
    Also this is for private use as im a fan from BTCC classics and follow since 85 and seems no game company is able to do classic cars they prefer to put a bunch of cars that people maybe try once and then never drive again i prefer passing hours driving my mod hoping that someday classic btcc comes alive from some company
    For now having fun and nostalgic feelings driving this cars i know they are not top quality but brings me adrenaline
    So if someone wants to help or tips with the Volvo 850 physics the car slides too much and the AI in some circuits dont finish
    Looking for the Renault Laguna and the BMW that i tink is on WIP stage.
    Regards

    Why do you post a ripped 3D model from Volvo The Game (or Forza)? I mean, you're free to drive/modify anything for your private use but I guess you know how this forum works...
