Hi!

I would like to introduce you to a new project. It is a Chevrolet Suburban:

This picture shows the metallic livery of the Chevrolet. It is available in two other finishes: white and black

The Chevy is currently still in development, but he is already very advanced. Next to me two other developers are working on this project - it's actually a joint project of Rob Barendregt, Manfred Jahn and me. My job is to create 3-D modeling and texturing. Manfred and Rob's tasks include dain, to create the driving dynamics (Rob) and to fill the virtual cockpit with "life" (Manfred). Manfred also wrote the code for the virtual cockpit displays, a functional brake light and the WindshildRainEffect. From Rob comes the programming for the transmission and the driving dynamics.

It will never get airborne, and will not find a permanent place of mooring next to the Spruce Goose...  And to boot, it will specifically targeted by "the squad".

It will not be long. First, the P3Dv4 version of the Published and then the FSX version is created and also published.

Without having to give exact details now, but maybe the P3Dv4 Chevrolet can be driven the weekend after next  😉🙂

Beautiful car, but how do you get it in gear?  It does not move.

The documentation is slightly off - the downloaded Panel.cfg points to the toebrakes option.

beautiful model!
