    If it's free to apply then why not ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ . I'd show my 3D models to Playground Games, if I were a serious 3D modeler!

    Does not cost you anything other than time, and having a lot of interview experience help you
    I'd say go for it

    That doesn't matter I guess.

    BTW, Any updates for your project?

    Not really, quite busy with real life projects at the moment. Okay, not quite, I've added the aftermarket Panamericana front grille for the G class yesterday. But no real logics updates just yet. Still have to finish some plate fitment issues before heading on to the last panel for the demo.

    Sure will do when I have something new for sure. I just have projects (real life workwise) so I don't have any time really to continue. But when I will have some time here and there to fix some stuff on the game I'll post it here first

    @TDUZoqqer if you can help Playground Games by selecting cars to add to the game that the community actually wants, get that job ;)

    I wish it would be that easy haha! I think there are more reasons behind the scenes about not adding the cars the people want than just not wanting to. I know of strict regulations on the licenses and stuff. One reason why Mitsubishi and Toyota aren't featured.

    I was only half serious, but I think Forza being one of the most popular games is more positive commercialism than risky. But it's probably more difficult than that.

    Heylo, time to revive the thread a bit. I was very busy with work and other stuff in the past time so I didn't have much time to update my game (Also thanks to Forza Horizon 4 which also took a majority of my free time lel)

    I am "back" on my game again ("" because I sort of am, since I have had some time the past 3 days). I finally put in the new UI into the project and it's working very well. It still has some imperfections which I need to take on with time, but the core of it is working good. As you might imagine, I won't be able to release the demo this year anymore, as it's still missing some things everywhere, and eventho the most are easy fixes, they still take a lot of time.

    Nontheless, the progress is good and I can't wait to show you it :) Stay tuned.

    I don't think I'll finish anything till christmas. Many core things aren't ready to make even a small demo (eg. pause menue to quit, settings, optimized controls, UI, logics etc). I will try tho.

    E: What you guys can do, tho, is sending me pictures of the coolest mods for the BMW E46 Coupe. :3 (bodykits, bumpers, spoilers, splitters etc)

    Hello there, I'm K3
    a friend recently showed me this Project of yours and I got to say I'm interested, I'm a self-made 3D Designer working with Blender and Substance Designer/Painter and got some experience with UE4 already, I'm busy until next year but then I would be happy to help you in this Community project as I'm a fan of TDU and TDU2

    Hey! Cool, happy to hear that, thanks a lot for the interest :) 3D people come quite handy as I still need a lot to model for the first cars I'm planning. Hit me up when you have free time we could chat a bit about the future and what we expect.

    Just as a disclaimer tho, I wanted to make sure that everyone who is helping gets to see this:
    That's a project I do in my free time, and it should be kept this way. For the other people helping me on this project, this might be a good exercise and maybe something for the portfolio later when we will release something.

    In a case, when I would make a commercial project somewhen, I will hit up the Project: DRIVE people first and those projects would get paid. I am working in Video game development in real life, so it's not that unrealistic. Maybe as a motivation.

    Just wanted to make that clear. I am a freelancer, therefore I always need to know the payment inbefore so that nobody gets scammed, and I don't want to scam you guys either.

    yea it's ok if we don't get paid, I've been modding a game the past 1.5 years and that was also for free (minus the donations) I thought this project will replace my modding hobby and will let me release my creativity without limits unlike the modding tools did

    Very cool! What are you interested most in modeling? LOD's and tuning parts for cars would be pretty cool for now. LOD's because I mostly model out the customization parts for the highpoly model, but as it's based on Forza's models, there are lods then for everything but the new parts.

    I'm into Modeling Cars and everything that belongs to them, but recently I've also started working on world assets. When it comes to LODs UE4 has probably the industry's best auto LOD generator out there but I don't mind doing some of them by hand. I've also used some Forza models for mods so I know how to work with them and add to them in terms of tuning parts. Textures are also something I'm enjoying thanks to Substance Designer/Painter.

    and btw may I ask if you guys have a Discord Server as that would be easier to chat, talk and share images or files?
