Soon! I'm trying to get it up by the end of the day. Just a bit of playing around with the .lua and the thumbnail left to do. And then figure out how to put it on steam with photos.

What is the "Cd =" value in the "Drag & Lift" section of the .lua? I assume it's the drag value, and if so, how do I calculate that?

This should give you a rough Cd value: http://hpwizard.com/aerodynamics.html

As for the wheel offset bug, this may be caused by the mirrors. IIRC the same isue occurred with vans that had mirrors close to front fender. Not sure if there's a workaround.

Thanks! The front can be morphed in a way that part of the mirror overlaps the wheel arch, so I guess that might be the issue.

Passenger version! The rear morph can add an extra 1.2 m to the length.

I set the seating options at 2, 5, 8, 11, but I only get 2, 5, 8 available in game. Am I limited to 3 values, or does it just consider the van too short for a fourth row of seats?

I suggest using this - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... 47&vpid=A1

You find the real world Cd of the car you're modeling, and then this will try to remove the vent/grille/cooling drag from it to give you a base value.

Thanks! I haven't tried tackling anything other than bodies so far, so badges (or any fixture) are out of the question for the moment. I will try my hand at those eventually, and I might consider taking requests when that time comes.

I added a .zip file for anyone playing the standalone version, as well as a special variant.

I've installed and tried your car. Looks like you've gotten a great start. :) Makes me think of the A-Team. :mrgreen:

Thanks! The A-Team van is the main reason I tried to get it to morph to be closer to a Vandura, and why the fenders can flare out so much.

I like it. Fits a gap for old-school people haulers and cargo vans between the 60's era micro-bus and the 90's era van.
