Porsche 550 Spyder: dashboard

Is it possible to make a dashboard with transparent parts? Spyder has a way too small windscreen to apply the usual pvs modules.

Yes, it is. Dashboard resources with an "m" suffix (dasm, inm1, etc.) are transparency masks. I suggest you to check the Indy dashboard, I believe it is quite close to what you want to achieve.

1, Thank you!
2, How could I be that stupid, I've already edited Indy's dashboard in 2009... :D
3, It gave me a silly idea that needs a lot of time to complete (maybe it isn't worth to do).

Your mum did not teach you to backup your data? :P

That was the backup process... ;D

Rumours say that they spy our internet usage.

Versioning is a very good habit to pick up, if you have 5 minutes to read a tutorial. hg or git will save you a lot of pain.

It happened when I wanted to copy the files from the pendrive to the computer. Somebody was talking to me, I wasn't really aware and picked the inverse direction. It would not be a big problem (as the files were still there), but after that the pendrive was formatted, because I needed the whole storing capacity for something else. Few hours later I recognized the mistake...  :o (quite typical deconcentration error)

Not a big loss anyway:

- Flinstone car (only .3sh)
- Skoda 120 (only the crappy 3D model)
- roller & bike  (easy shapes)
- Bugatti Veyron's dashboard (90% ready)
- Ikarus colorset + engine setting (the last version was made on my own computer)

Btw I think this one will be the slowest Stunts vehicle ever. Top speed is around 120 km/h (~75 mph), acceleration (0-100 km/h) must be about 25-30 s.  ;D

Slower than this one?  :D
(Attached is a .RES file intended for JTK's van that was lying in my Stunts folder - last modification date is 2010-10-24. I think that the tuning data roughly matches the specs JTK posted in one of the threads; I probably have made it a little bit faster for sanity reasons, though.)

I wonder if somebody finishes the "JTK's van" project and we use it at least once in a competition, will the lazy Kalpens come back?

If the answer is 'yes', I'll start it immediately. :D

I like it :) It is suitable for Skoda, too. :)

Quite strange, but it's harder to make a "box car" than any other. The simplicity makes them quite similar - and since they are small cars compared to a Corvette or LM002, you can't give them their real characteristics (e.g. 1 unit is too small for rear lamps width, while 2 units seem to be way too much). However, the Trabant will be updated.
