Just asking. #Tongue

Mainly because I found the wiki page of the Tatra T87 and damn, I would so demand that one featured in D-Day.

I vaguely remember you also planned to make your own Lodekka.

But just tell me that I'm mining here and you planned to reveal stuff like that at a later point.

Unlike the military equipment in D-day I haven't actual made any lists of civilian vehicles that I'd like to make. I have amassed a large collection of diagrams & reference images over the years tho. I'd planned in the future to just jump into my collection & pick what to make randomly.  
 
It would probably be a better idea to plan them out tho & would help motivate me to start making them #Tongue I'll make a start on a list & post it here once I'm done. I'd welcome any other suggestions you might have in the meantime.


BTW here is a list of the civilian vehicles currently in D-day:

Fordson Type F
Leyland Titan
Citroën Traction Avant
Citroën 2CV
Gaz-11
Zis-16
VW Type 1 "Beetle"
Mercedes-Benz 770

The Trabant born later (1957) than D-Day ends (1955), so no. The same reason I wouldn't suggest something akin to the Messerschmitt Kabinenroller series either.

The Tatra V370 (aka the protoBug) would also be something I'd suggest.

Also, no Ford Model T? #Tongue

D-day's end date has actually been moved to 1960, that is still rather arbitrary tho as there are some units from 1965. This change was needed to fill gaps in the unit list of a few of the sides. The technology used in these later designs isn't any better or in some cares worse then the 1950s tech used by most other sides tho. For example the Chinese Type 59 went into production in 1960 but was a copy of the 1951 Soviet T-54. This change in dates can also be taken into consideration when choosing civilian vehicles but I prefer to focus on vehicles from the late 1930s to fit the overall theme of the mod.

Compiling a list of possible vehicles is proving to be a substantial task, mainly because unlike the buildable military units I have no restrictions other then the general time frame. As such it's turning more into a list of every civilian vehicle I can find #Tongue So even with a comprehensive list, work on the civilian vehicles will probably still be a random affair. I will probably focus on some of the major manufacturers like Ford, Austin, Citroën, Fiat, BMW, Škoda & their primary models in the late 1930s. There are a few favourites of mine from Bugatti & Rolls-Royce that I want to include as well. After that I'll branch out to some of the more iconic vehicles that dont directly fit into the WW2 theme, such as the Ford Model T.

What I'd like to see are wartime civilian vehicles that had wood gas generators, or other similar unorthodox devices attached. During WWII, many countries suffered from shortage of petroleum, so alternative fuel sources were utilized. I know that at least in Finland, cars and buses fixed with a wood gas generator were a very common sight during WWII.

Examples:

Some wartime passenger car with a wood gas generator attached on the back, manufactured and sold by a local Finnish company (the building at the back).

Yes I will make variations of some vehicles using wood gas generators & gas bags.

Wow, I've never seen those before. That design looks nuts! And extremely unsafe #Tongue

I made a voxel of the Bugatti Type 41 Royale & posted a pic in my workbench topic in the media hut.
