Hi!Released - 2020 Land Rover Defender (Update: 5/10: Fix) (28)

I opted for itcreateon my current WIP project, the current generation Land Rover Defender, before I wrap up, so with that in mind I'll first lay out the following ground rules:

NOI don't have anything close to a release date, it will be available when it's ready but I have no idea when.
NO, I do not accept suggestions and no additional parts or configurations are made, at least not by me.
mi, I am looking for help in improving and fine-tuning the quality and appearance. So if you want to help feel free to message me for further contact, both via discord and other private messages.

With that out of the way, let's go in!

So yes, let's also say the obvious, this is a port of the Land Rover Defender 110X P400 from Forza Horizon 5, making it from scratch is 100% beyond my ability, but the idea is far from simple, quick and easy meshing. In fact, the task is now more difficult than any previous effort, as the FH5 models are currently in beta and most of the textures are unavailable, and it's a big part of the effort to recreate as much as possible without going crazy (the model has about 20 different types of plastic, for example...) , but the goal is to make it look as close as possible, with PBR textures and skin support. Thankfully the original UV mapping is still there which is a huge relief... oh can't share the percentage of the process in each area because I honestly have no idea what to say hereReleased - 2020 Land Rover Defender (Update: 5/10: Fix) (30)

The current state is as you can see in the image above, at the moment I'm working on creating new textures and deleting old ones, checking each one and combining as much as possible without making much difference and of course I still have to add Creating textures from scratch so at worst it takes is several days or even weeks. The idea is to hold the process later in the game until the textures are ready, so anything added will be optically ready, just for jbeam review.

Since the Forza models look very basic from the underside and the mechanics require a lot of work, I decided to "go easy" by fitting the entire mechanical bottom of the Cherier Tograc and after some adjustments, adjusting the dimensions to the bodywork to match, I am pleased to say that it works very well. The wheels are also finished, leaving only the rim textures. BTW, the engine mesh (since only the top is visible on the Forza models) is also from the Vivace, but is configured as an ETK I6 engine, depending on the tuning, so it has the same specs as the real engine...may need with!

(Video) How to Figure Out Front End Clunks and Knocks

The jbeaming is the best I can get with my current knowledge, the beams reach every corner of the body, and the mask, which is the only panel added so far in the game, has been customized by adding nodes/strips/triangles to better follow the shape.. but after a collision it bounces like crazy so i need some help in this area especially after adding more parts.

The interior has been imported so far just to give it a fuller look, although the textures are still being worked on, but the good thing is that not only does the GPS work at least (I'd like to modify it a bit to make it look like a real car user interface a bit more), and most importantly, i also have digital gauges working (including gear and speed indicator)... but the pointers are not working. So please help me with something elseReleased - 2020 Land Rover Defender (Update: 5/10: Fix) (34)

Aaaaa... I think that's enough text for now. Don't expect much progress in a few days while I'm working on the textures (I hope the next WIP update will work with the textures), but I wanted to share my work so far and of course ask people interested in the project as well, leaving enough time for chatting and sharing files to anyone who wants to help.

I hope that when it's all over it will be even better than I think, but until that day comes, remember, be patient. I know there may be some hype, but begging won't speed things up.

As a final image, a Blender photo showing everything with new materials, just lights and some travel glass. But since the files don't exist yet, there's not much to show right now...

More updates coming soon!Released - 2020 Land Rover Defender (Update: 5/10: Fix) (38)
