Thread: Speed Modelling Challenge #23 - Core (!)

  1. #46

    Distractions are mandatory....

    I need something to distract me. Otherwise id be losing my mind. =)

    P.S. Why would NT do this to us... don't they know we need our jobs and torture like this may equal the loss of many many jobs in the 3D community. And all this time i thought NT had their customers' best intentions in mind.

    I had just pulled my kids car seats out since I was going to a meeting. The back seats ended up half way between where they were suppose to and where they origionally were. The one on the passenger side being a rear facing seat would have pushed my friend who is 6'4" into the window or the dashboard.

    The funny(?) or not part was my wife was pissed that I had just filled up the tank a the gas station. But they gave me a full tank when I got my new car.

    In that SUV at that weight, the only way you can justify HyMPG, is on the freeway. My 08 Impala picked up 20mpg running without 2 PC's. This system is safe, as I've installed it in 2 different places, inside and outside the AirBox in front of the air cleaner.

    FYI.... depending on speed = VaporVolume = FuelPressure

    Since I work from home now I didn't need the mpg too high. I was looking more for safty now. My last job I drove 32 each direction and racked up 45k miles in 1 1/2 years. Since working at home I've only added about 10-12k this last year. It does have great mpg for its type, most of the other SUVs are 20 mpg highway and below. I'll take the 28

    Yea man...

    Like i said, im glad u r aok. I love small cars and if all people drove them I'd get one in a second. But... Considering all the moron drivers out there driving heavy vehicles, I just cant seem to even think about one any more. My mercedes is like 6800lbs and is built like a sherman (or should i say panzer?) tank.... if only it had a turret =)

    Someone might post a non copy protected model and then go from there? Could be interesting. 1h should be ok, your not building the car just the alterations... Think out of the box!

    Hrm...

    Well, i doubt they will have a 1988 mb e-class wagon for download. And turning it into a panzer will require considerable work... ill just have to do it cartoony. (which will be fun in and of itself... since it would be breaking my standard mode of conduct of realism.)

    Most of what I've had to do with cars is accident reconstruction. so adding objects would be a little more interesting then matching damage on a 3D object from a picture. especially when the lawyers want to be exact.

    The officer and the firemen got a laught that I did accident reconstructions for a living. I guess Friday was field research

    I know, I never thought I'd be this excited about the COR3 [!w00t!], but it's got me good and proper. Glad I've had some rig tweaking to keep my mind busy today!

    I could be wrong, but I think that is the case. Was it two weeks ago you won?..... If so, you're in the chair fella!

    Well, here it is, not very adventurous I'm afraid but it is something I've fancied doing before.
    Modelling took longer for the sing and lights than it did for the Earth, (unsurprisingly ). All told, around 45 mins modelling for everything.

    Trust me to try and upload it tonight of all nights.
