I'm very impressed with the graphics and details of this game but something caught my eye and that something is that the Nissan Skyline R34 has a V engine instead of the RB26dett inline 6.

You can see it here, for example, http://youtu.be/j0mMnEUSOxw?t=2m27s . On 2-27 the player applied street kit and V8 is installed to the car. I can confirm that it was also the same in game for me.

I don't know if it is intended to be like that for sure. But in my conversation about the engine's sounds with the developer I asked about engine swapping from inline to V-shape (with no change in how they actually sounds) and got the answer that there would be only the stock engine sound.

I'll just write what i know.

I'm interested in that question from first show demo of The Crew about 1 year ago(and i'm interested not only about skyline, i'm interested about all of cars in the game).

I don't know about all cars, bur for a long time I'm a fan of japanese cars culture, so i was little bit surprised, when on beta i tuned my skyline in any kits and i had visual V-shape engine, but sound was from RB26DETT(which was installed on stock 34 GT-R in real life(it's twin turbo inline 6 engine)).
When i asked on Russian game expo a couple months ago one of developers about engine licenses and that strange moment he answered for me, that it was normal and with tuning kits visually we would see V-shape engine and sound would be always from stock car.

p.s. but i don't worry about that, because i like RB26 sound on GT-R more, then V-shape. The question is - will it be for all cars in the game, or it's just not finished yet.. And as i understand we can't see engines from stock kit cars.
p.p.s. i watched not much engine combinations in game, but i saw and i-4 engines on some cars(like focus). And i saw unique engines for example on lamborghini or ferrari engines. So i'm just interesting - is it licensed engines or was it just a several templated drawn.

First from real life onboards of stock 34GT-R and race car(GT-R with tuned RB-26):

Then stock-engine sound from game:

And last - streetkit and dirtspec sounds:

As you can see all sounds are similar and that's RB26 sound.(and you can hear bypass on throttle lift for example).

fantastic spot, power to the car nerds, I played a 34 briefly but didn't pay attention when it got naked in the tuner shop, I have noticed that the engine noises are nice though in game the waste gate sounds like it is dumping less pressure than irl idk if it's a messed up recording or if they recorded a different i6 engine with lower pressure on the boost less efficient waste gates or w/e I'd still have preferred a 33 so I could recreate smokey's wangan highway monster.

Oh come on, dont tell me you guys didnt know? It was mentioned and explained in detail in the last "skyline" Thread.


Thats how a stock r34 skyline gtr engine looks like:

Since the complete geometry/layout of gearbox, exhaust, arms, shocks and driveshaft look totally different from the real one I assumed that it is known and will be kept like this for minimized complexity.

it's been forwarded to our devs :)

really good work mate! I hope you keep us up do date with the devs decision.

One additional question: What did you exactly forward? That the engine setup is a R6 instead of a V6 or that the whole "layout" does not fit? Because the last point would apply to many of the cars ^^. I am not complaining. I am just curios about it ;).

IF you need any close up pictures of specific car parts let me know, my skyline is currently completly disassembled. ;)

simply forwarded that the engine used is the wrong one, that it shouldn't be the v6. They know which engine it's supposed to have ;) no word on if it'll be updated or anything soon however. This is a minor gripe that doesn't carry too much priority before launch right now
