    I think it is better to start a standalone thread on this one now instead of getting lost in the What are working on thread :)

    Like with the Audi this car again is not exactly what it appears like from the outside. Looking at it you would think "yeah, a widened Esprit", but this actually a Group-C chassis that an ex-Tiga employee bought and draped in Esprit like bodywork. I don't know if there's actually any real Lotus part in the whole car. More info on the car can be found in these two articles:

    (http://www.speedhunters.com/2013/07/reinventing-an-icon-krbs-829whp-lotus-lives/)
    (http://www.speedhunters.com/2013/02/krbs-esprit-gets-some-serious-firepower/)

    Contrary to the KRB Audi which ran a VW-Audi mashup engine, this "Lotus" now is pure Audi, 4.2 litre V8 from the old S8 (not the later FSI variant), aspirated with rather large Comp turbos and bolted to the old Group-C drivetrain. In the builders words it has "lazy" 800 hp, hwich may be 200 less then the Audi, but due to the much better chassis and better power delivery result in a whole new level of performance. Its like Gran Turismo, buy an old '80s wedge race car and head straight for the Stage 3 Turbo kit :geek:

    Well I have been modelling and working on the physics this for a while already, @IMrIMike has started with custom sound some time ago (btw, update? :whistling:). I have permission and support by the real KRB Trading Team, and have been send a little data already for the drivetrain.

    No idea about a Release date, maybe summer 2019? Dunno

    If anyone were up to help me with the physics, it may be sooner..

    Not really, I think internals were almost done anyway, turbo needs adjustments but that´s for later versions.

    just using HSV noise on the map texture has a nice effect

    btw does anyone know any cool Lotus liveries I could replicate on this car?

    spend the evening listening to a political talkshow and doing this, new UV mapping of the main body, first time using an asymmetrical layout. Ofc more a test, changes will be done to it when more details and things get made.

    Got my Editor woes fixed (System restore actually restored the system)

    It's no UE4 PBR creation, but that "Dirt&Scratches" brush set I once found for Gimp has been pretty handy. And ofc those fans will spin

    Little update on the audio here, too lazy for a video rn :whistling:
    It´s still missing lots of side noise like backfires, downshifts and turbo stuff, and I´m not quite happy with the coast samples yet, but other than that I´m quite satisfied with it.
    Certainly one of the most interesting sounding vehicle I´ve ever done, especially the howling in the reverb zones at Laguna Seca.

    Made some video myself, it appears much more laggy as it did while recording, maybe my HD is too slow, dunno, and sound detail got lost as this is recording from a replay and not live. But still good representation of the current state of the project (and IMrMike's soundwork):

    thanks, sounds better and better each version :)

    ----------
    spend some time on cockpit stuff, added two bars I had overlooked earlier, added that humongous fan arrangement, and some pedals. Also had a go around the whole cage to correct reflections

    tried doing what @A3DR does on the Lambo cage, think I went in the right direction. And yes priority is wrong on the inside glass.

    lot's of cables, not mapped yet

    [​IMG]
    also made the seat. Needs fine tuning at the shoulders, but given that I made it freehand without the driver model, it turned out pretty great already
    [​IMG]
    Nothing anyone would notice, but inside mesh for louvres and some more engine/frame parts

    edit:

    reservoirs done too (black "hole" around it will be done differently later)

    Now filled with stuff. And no longer filled with multiple materials and textures.
