    I just hacked in rF2 and enabled to show car model in rear view mirror.

    Big big thanks for @Bozak for surprising with perfectly placed driver model ! Also for suggesting some physics tweaks, that I am thinking about.

    Thats what I call community. We may not always agree, but we look at the same direction, and move forward together :)

    Right now main struggle is to get lights working well, then will move towards gauges, perhaps rain and wiper animation if I'll be able to do that. And more in the future...

    Here is how my issue looks like, thats how "glo" objects goes... same in game as in gJed:

    So I just use texture with full alpha as main texture, and enable alpha test. And then get some next gen invisible light sources :D

    Also Mirror is working now, and it is great. In my preffered fov screen, I only see 2/3 of the mirror. The mirror is placed in correct place, but I wonder should I drag it a bit to the right ? Should I do it ?

    Also objects of the car are flickering in the night - light to dark to very light.... I guess that might be the reason for the mess in GEN file. Will try to improve it.

    Hopefully, I haven't been working with Goodwood and XJ13 for a while now. I got involved with Woochoos 1954 mod (check it out, I think it gives nice experience), also did not have too much time. Hopefully to continue soon. I am also thinking to make a basic port of my Nemuno Ziedas track, and then slowly work on these three pieces of content.

    Once there will be significantly more development on this car, then I will release an update. Here just for testing, or maybe even an early workshop release... though it needs a lot of work to make use of everything, and to make car work right, not even talking about lods and finishing it up...

    Also last time I was happy about progressing with suspension geometry, and the work I did with tires. Turns out it was majorly placebo. And effects that came were from tweaking .hdv file and just couple of parameters in .tgm file... I felt quite stupid lol Though it wasn't entirely placebo, because tweaking other parameters made real differences. You can achieve a lot only by tweaking hdv file, engine file, and few parameters in tgm... I developed basic understanding on car suspension geometry, I hope to really put it in practice next time...

    Sounds so good !

    And I have eventually drifted towards Ecurie Ecosse LM69, seems like it is very very very new thing. Exciting stuff.

    Also no news about XJ13 in rF2 now. Also I have to make a note for you that you shouldn't expect rapid or soon updates on any of my mods, because I have too many WIPs, and not a lot of time to work on them, but eventually things move forwards when I feel like in right time to do it, so it is not like I am abandoning any of my projects, but just don't have any clearly organised modding schedule now.

    No. Even though it seems to share lots of lines and features with XJ13, and it would be indeed interesting to see how XJ with downforce would perform.

    I wish making a car these days wouldn't take a month or more of full time work, then I would probably think about it. I didn't have much time lately, so taking even more stuff is the least thing for me to do. Cars also would benefit of team work a lot, in fact it is the only way to have properly done cars, this reminds me that I have received lots of direct community help from community for XJ13 and Goodwood. My main wish would be to get those to workshops in less than decade :D Joke. Hopefully in a year.
