Can't believe it!
« on: November 17, 2013, 10:57:01 am »
I cannot BELIEVE you guys are making another street rod! Man I loved that game when I was a kid. Probably 1/2 the reason I became a mechanic then engineer. Really hoping to see a '70 SS Chevelle in there ;P

I think there will likely be a '70 SS Chevelle since it was common muscle car at the time.

There was also a Chevelle in SR2, although a slightly older one.  It does seem like a natural choice given its popularity today.  It should hardly matter that at the time it wasn't so desirable.  That's how these things go.  I just read an article about the Mercury Cyclone, another flop at the time that's collectible today.

1970 Chevelle is a great idea, different from 1968 Chevelle seen in SR2 true....but I would go with a 1970 El Camino which is based on the Chevelle front given that year.
I'm really excited about the game especially if the design is kept retro (the Drive-in with waitresses, could have some short chatting with them, hey sweetheart tell the boys I'm looking for a drag or pink slip or parts AND GET ME A MILKSHAKE! lol)
I just loved the epic quotes, SR3 must be RETRO!!!! I would even be crazy enough to play it in 16 bits...
I can't believe it too that they are doing it at last...I was asking Ubisoft and small game designers for the last 2 years if anyone would like to program it or remix SR3 to finish it (I have no programming skills/knowledge at all)....and HERE THIS SITE EXISTED ALL ALONG..THIS IS SO AMAZING! Nothing to do with GT, Forza, NFSUnderground, Hot Rod American Drag Street Racing......I've been playing SR1-2 for 15years (as I can remember I've had my 386SX (DX upgraded lol) my first real CPU, I'm downloading again for the XX time the 2 games RTFNow!!!!! P.S. If an Administrator reads this post, could it be posible to have a huge post telling us where you are at in a summary what you need, like a list, because I see many posts and videos, but it's hard to tell exactly at what stage you are, I think you're looking for a programmer????...is the story complete? PLEASE MAKE A LIST OF THE PROBLEMS YOU HAVE RIGHT NOW TO MAKE THE PROJECT MOVE FORWARD...too many posts scrambled :)

SR3 isn't retro but, if you want retro check out SRO. http://streetrodonline.com/

However SR3 is a genuine truthful to the roots 3D sequel.

That website answers one of my long-running questions about SR2, namely why the '53 Cadillac is missing, and so on.  The Car Data Disk!!!  I'd really like to know more about that one.

Okay, now I'm curious. What's this "Car Data Disk" you guys are talking about?

A myth untill Marko can get is hand one/it. I have to wonder if the Sr2 developer he spoke to had any thing to say about it.

Right now it's a bit of a myth indeed.

But with strong suggestions that it's true, see my evidence below (which is also available on streetrodonline.com)
I'm working quietly on more evidence, I hope to publish more news this month.

As promised, some more news. I talked with one of the original developers and he affirmed that the Street Rod Car Data Disk exists.

As you might have read on streetrodonline.com, the mysterious Street Rod Data Disks have been found.

Very soon we will know whether we can play Street Rod with a whole new set of cars or not.
