Suggest your car design

Postby Tiakh » Wed Jul 15, 2015 1:11 pm

Fist of all, i DONT necessarily want to have my design in the game and you shouldnt, too.
It should be just a suggestion on how the cars could look. Because their will be most likely mod support, you could theoretically have any design you want in the game.

My suggestion:
Different Look on both sides of the car. Maybe you could make them look totally different on both sides (colour and shape wise), but i would find it a bit awkward. So my idea is more of having an unsymetrical rear or front (like the vents of the genesis). The car should look similar on both sides, but different.

Image
(Dont criticise my drawing skill, i was just lazy lying on my bed and drawing the picture)
I drawed more then what i wanted to show. The rest is just to emphasis the idea. (or ruin it... :lol: ) The idea is just the round part at the back. (In the picture i wrote "important part"). Actually everthing other then the shape of the rear can be ignored. I dont think exhausters would fit into the futeristic game style, aswell as the formula 1 looking front side (Bot). They are just some random ideas.(and not to hard to draw)
However the actual surface design should be like the grip cars from the trailer (badass and futuristic).

Some example rears from real cars:
The Top side looks more speedy then the Bottom side.Comparable rear to a ford gt:
Image

Bottom side has more the shape of a classic car:

PS: how can i put the pictures in a spoiler to make the post smaller? [spoiler][/spoiler] doesnt work.

+1 for asymmetric design.

Also, what about having boosters along the car body rather than just in the back? Like, they can be put on a wing-looking piece between the wheels.

I like the one that I've found on the Internet and showed already (LINK). That front part is just brilliant.
Also, I'd like to see a car that has booster exit in the shape of a star (it could even have 2 stars).

You realise that's a very similar design to "Wolf" in Rollcage Stage 2 right? It had the same asymmetrical and jagged cockpit like that, where the rocket exhaust is on one side, and the raised area of car moves towards the other side.

Can't find an image online of it though! :P

It would be nice to bring few different approaches.
For example different designs for different manufacturers/teams. Some high tech "lot of pipes and electronics" sci-fi look for one, some high aerodynamic organic design for another and definitely some low cost "rat" almost like fusion of rollcage and mad max buggies. :lol:
Also you can use different design eras and make some cars with design taste like in 60's and 80's.

Year, i would really like to see some rusty and worn down cars. A bit like the starwars podracers, futuristic and old looking at the same time and they would suit the desert environment.

Actually i like the idea to have some combination of track environment and car manufacture. So you could also have some cup races, which only allows you to drive cars from specific manufacture, which match the tracks environment. This would add some variety with out much effort.

Not really for GRIP, but a car design I came up that would work in GRIP.

That car looks awesome!

I like that it isn't just a block with some shapes on it
It has a light look to it, but also a fast one

Also, I have no problem with the pictures posted, so unless you want to do it differently, you can just include them here

haha it's awesome how involved you guys are. You just can't wait to play this game, can you.

"Choose from a roster of armoured cars, manufactured by different companies from around the galaxy"

That's what it says on the Grip site. It's pretty vague, but we plan to elaborate fully in the Kickstarter page.

All the cars will look very different, thanks to the different manufacturers. For instance, maybe the current car is made by humans on some earth-like planet. Another car could be made by some aliens that more resemble lizards, and another one could be manufactured by a warrior species like out of the Predator movies.
So yeah, we want them to look very different from each other. Not just the 3d model, but the texture as well as thruster shapes and hues.
And tire sizes are subject to differ as well

Also, the current car is actually asymmetrical on either side of the car, but it's symmetrical top and bottom. That's not to say other cars will have different tops from bottoms, but it does create quite a bit more work, and we will be a small team even after we get funding.

I do like the Genesis' scoops. They're pretty badass.

@Unreal2k: There are already side thrusters on the current vehicle, but they're at the back end. I think we'll actually change those so they "backfire" when the car changes gears, rather than have them as stabilizer thrusters.

Something along the lines of the Unity Black Widow and the Vostok Scorpion mixed together would be pretty cool. I might make something so you see what I mean.

Make a car with a rear wing like the Vostok Reaper and I will be happy :P

Question though: Will different engine sounds (like in RCII) be possible? Some people like the 'growl' of the Redux/Stage II's type 1 cars whereas some people like the F1-esque whine of the vanilla/type 3 cars. Just wondering.
