Engine is under construction, performance is expected to be similar to Skyline.

First spy photo from the test track - quite a hard moment anyway. :D

Far from ready, but it already hides an eastern egg... ;)

Btw are you okay with the more realistic height values? The built in cars are way too low (~1/5 of the length or even less) - Impreza will be 100 units long with 31 units height.

I do not recommend that. Stunts stretches 3D models and bitmaps vertically by a factor of 6:5 (an explanation and some evidence). To compensate for that, stressed models should have their height reduced by 1/6. Incidentally, I committed this mistake with the original release of Skyline, and it looked like a truck next to the other cars. (Also, that's why if you check the readme of Skyline in the current ZakStunts pack you'll find it is actually the 1.1 version...)

P.S.: If you are using the latest Windows release of stressed (the 0.1.0-rc5 in this post) the rescaling of the y-axis should be done automatically for 3D models, so the car should look right with the height corrected by the 5/6 factor.

Somehow the original cars seem to be too flat, that's why I made such a tall one.

I hope one of them is named Jefferson, with a big "revolution" word as shape on it.



Yes, yes, I know, only dinosaurs like me still remind Jefferson Airplane (re-named Jefferson Starship a few years later) band. ;) ;D

It already has. :D

(quite good cornering, acceptable grip on ice/mud/grass, acceleration is slightly better than Corvette's, top speed is somewhere around 180-185 mph - it's a hybrid of the rally car and the tuned street drag version)

The new version has a decreased height (the roof is still at Y=25 or 26) and it really looks better.

Are you okay with digital speedometer? (Digital rev meter would be cool, but unfortunately it's impossible - I really miss it from the Knight Rider project).

I'm ok with it. Not with digital rev meter though. I like my revs with a needle

Ouch, I just discovered that zapper already used the rev meter style I planned for the street race version of Subaru... :-\

So that's the point where I stop this "30% ready" design and try to find out a new one.
