Jester Classic Appreciation/Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

pez2k

The fine detail (or rather, the lack thereof) really doesn't do this thing any favours, either - typical of that guy who does all the worse car models in this game, the bodywork doesn't look like separate panels, but like the whole thing was cut out of one big lump of solid plastic:

...

And yet again, other folk doing car assets have done it just fine - that's why I reckon the Supra should have been assigned to whoever did the Elegy Retro, because they clearly understand that, and know how to do it properly

It does very much feel like R* have two or more teams doing the car art with jarringly high variations in the level of talent. With the awful proportions of the Dominator GTX, the featureless Jester, the slab-sided Ellie and the daft-looking Flash there's a noticeable quality gap to cars of the last update like the 190Z, Savestra, Raiden and so on. It's at the point where stuff like the Tezeract feels more like an iffy mod than first-party content, while the Elegy Retro blows most mods away in terms of inspiration, fit and finish.

Made some edits to it. I am a beginner when it comes to ZModeler but I think it is an improvement. I want to alter the engine, not sure which car to nab one from.

Erm, I'd disagree with some of those - at least the model quality is very good on the Ellie, even if it's a bit of a shame to not be able to customise the bodywork more.

 

As for the Savestra and the Raiden, the models are okay, but the Savestra's a mix of so many cars that it doesn't really look like anything beyond 'generic boxy '70s JDM'. :/

 

Meanwhile, whoever thought that a Ford front and an Aston Martin rear on a Tesla was a good idea needs punching...

Im really starting to feel like most cars are just given out like a lottery to different designers.Each update gives us cars that range from extremely high level of detail to basic.Its very inconsistent.

 

The Jester...its design is well enough, but its excution looks like its not even finished.It looks like a amateur modders version of a car.Like its not even released yet and ppl found texture glitches on one of hoods and the front headlight.

Thing is, if they'd given the car to one of the better artists, and they still decided to follow the lines of the SA Jester, it'd have worked just fine - the big killer is just how cheap and rushed the whole thing is, between the shoddy build, weak customisation, model errors, bloated proportions, etc.

I don't really have an opinion on this car, other than that if they were going to do something nice for the fans they probably should've done it right. Personally, I always preferred the Sultan over the Jester in San Andreas.

I'll be making mine into Brian's Supra from Furious 7... but honestly I don't know if this car won't be the garage queen.

You know in retrospect if they were going to add a jester classic and it just be a slightly updated version of the san andreas model than I would've preferred it to be this:

R9UEcrt.jpg

 

At least then it be fine since you know the san andreas nsx looks pretty close to the real nsx. Heck they could even keep the headlight placement and the fact it's front engine and I would've been completely fine.

 

Then with limited mods you could make it look like the Advance NSX. Simple.

 

Altough I have a sneaking suspicion they're saving this for a benny's retro custom like with the elegy.

Nice job on this one! The livery make the light (front and rear) more forgettable in the global look of the car! Missed opportunity that this car doesn't have livery :/ (and proper kit to..) Great job on your pic !

Seems R* is laughing at everyone's faces right now. They knew they were going to intentionally screw up the Jester Classic and succeeded.

 

Unless people could utterly force R* into completely redesigning the Jester Classic into a 1990's NSX look-a-like car, or even re-brand it as a Karin car (which is based on Toyota), R* seems to not give a damn right now.

 

And this is R*'s reaction to our outrages:

Everything about it feels unfinished tbh.

 

The interior trim option, for some reason, affects dials, the mirror, the wheel and if you paint them any dark colour they essentially disappear into a total lack of detail.

I have a strong feeling that this was made last minute. maybe even just a couple days before release.

 

You know they f*cked up when they gave the lada more customization options than the supra.

Hey, Vagner was released like a week or so after the Concept Car was revealed, so they had enough time

i doubt that they took their time with the jester.

 

i would not be suprised that they saw the influx of supra requests on this forum (not that long before the update came out) and then decided to make it.

 

it's clear that this car was made after all the other cars where already done. they did not even have time to make decals for it.

Valkrie concept was released way before that (May of 2016ish). So they had enough time for that. The Jester Classic is just a litteral car wreck of a design.

The SA Jester has indicator lights in the front bumper as a cool nod to the Supra.

 

This travesty doesn't even have that, which might explain why the front bumper looks so boring.

Honestly, I'd be willing to forgive them the lack of everything on that car, and even the engine if only they gave it a proper interior.

just a poor edited pic for 10 minutes but still looks better than original (as for me)...
default textures look not so bad when they are similar and not different. Also, to force us to use 2 exhausts is a shame.
Moreover, giving the liveries to all the vehicles in the update and ignoring the Supra... is a crime...

Wow, I never noticed how low the rear license plate is mounted.

 

That's another problem right there.

Dominator GTX also doesn't have any liveries.

I wonder what they would've called the Paul Walker livery had they added liveries to this car: maybe the "Ten Second Rocket" or something like that. The lack of customization is what I'm the most salty about with this car.

I agree with you guys to some point; after reading all the critiques and looking at the pictures I believe is fair to assume this car was rushed and some elements of it looks like they weren't fully finished. That said, I don't think that it looks that bad. I mean, look at that back end. If it wasn't for those oversized exhausts it would look perfect IMO. Too bad the front lights are ugly and look like cars from the vanilla game. I really hope that this theory of a 'Benny's Jester Classic' in the near future is true because this car badly needs it.

But overall I think this car is still nice and Im looking forward to it.
