Cars - Mercedes Benz AMG Hammer Wagon Model Inaccuracies

From Escv12 on GTPlanet

Hammer Coupé

What does it look like in free roam?

The colours in the garage and freeroam may differ a bit.

And it’s (just) paint so you can repaint it in the correct colour.

I wonder if the body line is correct too, because they completely butchered the C124

It has been scanned recently so it should be.

It was allegedly scanned together with the Hammer Coupe, so I would be surprised if it did not have the same inaccuracies that the Coupe shouldn’t have in the first place

In Freeroam it does look exactly the same. The picture looks totally legit to me. The color of the ingame car - definitely not. Totally artificial.

And obviously no metallic paint. This color is the only available color when you buy it in game. Cannot imagine this was the only color available back then - if it was available at all. I really doubt that!

Would have been the first car since ages that would have been bug-free.

Playing on XSX.

I like it here! I am proud of you all!

The car is available only for some minutes and already five votes on this issue!

PG/T10 definitely should change the company which is scanning the cars for them. I am sure they have talents for other things.

PS: Now we all know why PG/T10 was not releasing an ingame picture in advance (only of that car). Probably they were having doubt about the color, too. So there is hope that the correct color will come in a future bugfix.

FH5 has many original colours wrong.

Man that headlights and the disproportionate model of the C124 Hammer Coupe is awful. Can’t ignore it lol.

It is completely different from the IRL car which has a darker, denim-like and semi-metallic shade of blue. Has to be the AMG Midnight Blue

Please note that the side window trim on the rear doors in game is incorrect. It’s chrome in game when it’s supposed to be blacked out. How do these new cars keep getting messed up?

Update. The AMG Wagon has terrible model like its brother.

Come on now FORZA, another paid DLC car with modeling errors? What is going on there?

The AMG Hammer Wagon has a glaring visual error when comparing to the IRL car. The rear side window trim pieces are chrome when they are supposed to be black. This car has no chrome anywhere near the windows.

Especially strange is the rear window sizing and alignment on the in-game model. The rear window is longer in height than the side windows and is slightly higher aligned with them. There is a lot of dead space around the back window on the in-game model. Truly strange mistake.

The tailgate hatch shut lines (panel gap line between the hatch and the rear fenders) are supposed to be converging like IRL - and are dead straight in game. ALSO, the taillights are fully blocky instead of matching the converging hatch door lines.

  1. Wrong Rear Window Trim Material (supposed to be black plastic instead of chrome)
  2. Incorrect Rear Window Sizing and Alignment.
  3. Hatch Shut lines are fully straight instead of converging.
  4. The taillights are incorrectly modeled to be blocky at 90 degrees instead of matching the converging shut lines.
  5. The license plate area is incorrect in size and shape.
  6. The lower bumper and its /diffuser is wrong in shape and angle.

The bumper is supposed to curve in along with the lip being angled high (from the wheel to the end of rear bumper)

This car really needs to be fully rescanned and remodeled IMO. Too many GRAVE errors!

The moment I saw the unusually blocky rear of this car I knew there were some serious proportional and modeling errors. It looked more Volvo than Mercedes. Such an embarrassment!

If anything, this car model should be a lot simpler to work than the complex surface models of newer modern cars. I do not understand your accuracy and quality control. How do you review your car models?

These are extremely SERIOUS flaws for a brand new modeled car in a PAID DLC car pack. Just like the Hammer Coupe, the sister wagon is poorly modeled!!

Please fix the model and its errors as soon as possible. Totally unacceptable especially when it is a PAID car pack. Too disproportionately ugly and noticeable to drive this car. The audacity to sell an inaccurate car model that could’ve just been added to the autoshow anlong with its disproportionate brother coupe.



The 190E Evolution, AMG Hammer Coupe, and now the Hammer Wagon plagued. Three great Benz cars ruined in this game. I love this era of Mercedes Benz cars but man they all look terrible here!!

Seriously sad and unacceptable quality for a AAA racing game

Moreover, there is also something bad with proportions at the back. The rear window is way to small, it was alligned to the line of side windows, but in real, it isnt aligned. Therefore it looks strange at the back.

Plus rear wiper changes color with the car…

No it isnt. Rear window is too small. It looks like Ford Granada at the back.

I noticed that! Thank you for the reply! I’ll post a pic soon. There are also other major issues with the rear end of this car for that unusual wonky look!

Copied from a post in an other thread.

1 - Wrong colour and material (it’s actually matt/satin black)
2 - Wrong colour and shape (the arm is black and the wiper is much longer)
3 - Wrong angle and shape (falls of way more and isn’t that wide)
4 - Completely wrong shape (the notches in the “glass” are actually way more prominent and the angle is wrong)
5 - Wrong shape (size and angle)
6 - Wrong shape (roundness and angle)
7 - Completely wrong shape (size and angle)
8 - Wrong shape and position (size and height)

The red marks show some of the parts where the scaling is completely off.

Here’s a photo of how the original looks.

And that’s just what’s wrong with the back on the first look!

Also, what is this?

I’ve paid extra money for this trash. Please fix it!!!

I presume this car was crudely scanned for older titles, didn’t make it into those titles I guess due to the sedan Hammer being there and they’ve put it in now without refurbishing it. Disappointing.

Unbelievable - but (sadly enough) true.

Maybe somebody should make a list of what is correct with this car model.

That would be a short list.

This dumbster fire of a car model was presumably sitting on their hard drives - for very good reason indeed - since around November 2020 when the first Hammer fell.

Regardless if it costs extra money or not - such stunts just do not make any sense in an AAA-title.

According to a post on reddit they’ve scanned the car about three years ago already. I’ve my doubts the car was actually scanned or that these scans were used for the model if they exist but it’s quite possible that the model we’ve ingame exists since quite some time already.

Also…

Wagon

The inside of the door of the real car looks more like the one of the Coupe we’ve ingame.

Coupe

They seem to have wrongly used the style from a later version of the car that wasn’t existent at the time the Hammer was built.
