It's hard to find comparison photos\pictures, but I don't think the 544 is too small for GTL. It was definitely taller, by inches, than the 122s (Amazon), and appears to be as long - body-wise - as the 122s was\is. My first (and last) ride in a 544 was over 50 years ago, but my impression then was 'Wow, this car is narrow!'. All that appears to be the case with what pics I could find and the comparison screenshots you posted and I'm re-posting.






Seems a shame, really, that the car may have to be run virtually by itself. I'm hoping that won't be the case...and even if it will tax a computer to the maximum, I still want the car, as I suspect others here will, too.

Well, Speed, in my humble opinion, I think the proportion you made is absolutelly perfectly done, and shows exactly the real difference between one and other.
About the wheels, as a good option, you could have also, those amazing Minilites made by Zee/ Tincorna, used in Amazon, maybe the best Minilites done to GTL, ever!
I wish you luck in this new job. Waiting anxiously for the release! Cheers!  cheers cheers
BTW: all options of wheels available in Amazon Mod would be perfect, but not this one you used to test,, with very low profile tyres, please!
And you could use also, those various options of headlights (foglights), available in Amazon Mod.

PV544= 4496mm, 122= 4450mm +45mm

Wheelbase;
PV544= 2652mm, 122=2601mm +51mm

Width;
PV544= 1580mm, 122= 1613mm -33mm

Height;
PV544= 1560mm, 122s= 1504 +56mm

I think the size between the two cars looks quite right in comparison with the photo's shown as the 544 does look to be a little bit smaller.  clown

I have in front of me a book published by the Royal Dutch Automobile Club (KNAC) in 1965 (the last year the 544 was manufactured). It gives the following info on the size of the two cars:
PV 544: length 445 cm, width 159 cm, height 156 cm, weight 988 kg
121/122S: length 445 cm, width 162 cm, height 150 cm, weight 1071 kg.

I personally owned two 544's (one with a B16A engine, the other a Sport with a B18D engine) and a 122S (B18D engine) and as far as I can remember (this was early seventies ...) the 122S was wider and a lot lower. Length wise I really can't remember anymore.

Hope this helps,
Cheers,
Brulaap

Thank you all for the information.  cyclops

Any info on progress? I do realize there may be other mods 'in-the-making', and modders do\should have a life outside simming. Wink

Thanks in advance...

Is not dead yet.  Wink 
But the data set is still too large.  Exclamation  Exclamation  Exclamation 
Have the Volvo to test inGame. (only the Car, no Cockpit)
But GTLegends has problems represent him.
The Frame rate is very bad.  Evil or Very Mad 

Work because the amount of data to reduce.
This takes Time and very important,
DESIRE to continue working.

But he is not dead  Exclamation  Smile

Hello.

News about the Volvo PV544 Sport.
The Volvo is almost ready. Smile 

There are still a few changes needed,
but he is stable in GTL.
The Frame-Rates are Acceptable with the Original Car's from GTL.

Thanks to Zee, because some parts of the Amazon Mod
have the PV544 saved.   Very Happy  bounce 

The Videos give an impression of the car in the Game.
[ My skin's of the Vehicles are very simple.
The Car paint is not just me! ]

I TOTALLY agree with zoobear. You are doing great on this new addition. Speaking for myself, I very much appreciate your contributions to this Site. Maybe it is because of all the modders like yourself here sharing their work with others that we see over 5000 members!!!

Woo-hoo!!! And holy mackerel, even! I'm gob-smacked. I believe it's gonna make it into GTL...at last. Thank you ever so much. And yes, I can wait several more months if that's what it takes to finish it off to your satisfaction. Am tickled pink you didn't lose it your recent computer crash.
