I've been working on and off on a brand new Lotus 48 car model for the last couple of months, with the aim of producing a more accurate car shape both on the inside and on the outside. The curent model is based on the Lotus 33 F1 car but a lot of the visual cues are more similar to the Lotus 43 and 49 car models, even though the overall dimensions are closer to the 33. Combining all these features, I've been able to combine and reshape parts of the GPLEA Lotus 43 and 49 to fit onto our F2 48. The result is a much sleeker looking car, more in line to what I was seeing on pictures of the real car. These are the new features implemented so far:
- New car model (based on Lotus 43)
- New cockpit model (based on Lotus 49)
- New textures (based on Lotus 43 GPLEA)
- New cockpit textures (based on Jackseller and original F2 texture artist Remy's work)
I'll also try and implement fixes for the gap in the front wheels and G.Spinnings new driver suits.
I'm very happy with the car so far, the engine bay could use some small improvements still but depending on the time available I'll leave that for another time. On the cockpit side, I've made the cockpit longer, narrower and higher and the steering wheel bigger and higher resulting in a more accurate feel of how small the cockpit was.
Still a lot to do but hope you guys will like it.
