Below you can find official interesting curiosities related to this model and version.

Below this tab there is another one - a complete work process on this model. This might be actual or archival (depending on information: "Model finished", "Work in progress..."). A table with description of work done was divided into more categories. Both curiosities and work progress are related to the first model from GTA IV.

> Daewoo Mirae Concept 1999 - curiosities

Things related to www.mods.darewnoo.pl


• It is our first model since 2014 which did not have the mods.darewnoo magazine, even though the issue with Mirae on the cover was prepared (see pic).

Changes in content of the final folder compared to the previous models

-

Testers and authors of the screenshots


• The tester and the author of the screenshots was darewnoo.

Things that were planned, but not added

• The model was supposed to open four doors.

Things never planned, but added


-

Random parts

• Since this is a prototype, the model does not have random parts.

Costs


• Model was not co-financed by sponsors, it was fully paid by creator of darewnoo.pl. What’s interesting, Lazlow initially agreed to make the model for $30 (the same as our early, low quality Matiz and Lublin models), but because darewnoo wanted the car to be more detailed, the price raised to the standard $50.

Mistakes and bugs in model

• Too long indicators at the back.

• Small holes in the body – not visible during gameplay.

Curiosities related to the working progress of the model


• Great fuss – despite the website is mentioning the model was made in February and March 2017, the model was actually made straight after Lanos sedan and before Nexia 5D, from October 23, to November 6, 2016. For the whole 4 months, the Mirae was kept in secret. Even though nobody, apart from the authors, knew about it, darewnoo did in fact share a part of the mystery – in the Polonez textures for GTA V, the back cover of the mods.darewnoo magazine (issue 15, December) shows a screenshot of the finished Mirae crashing into unfinished Nexia (see first pic) – the screenshot was taken on December 26, 2016 (month after Mirae was finished), and was published as a texture when Polonez was released at January 2, 2017. However, the screen is only visible when the textures are reviewed in an editor, because the back cover is normally not visible in the game. You may wonder why a model from November is signed as a model from March? This is simple – to keep the chronology. The Nexia was supposed to be released before the prototypes. The timeline on the right helps explaining how was it ment to look like (see second pic).

• Even though the model was finished in November 2016, the final fixes by darewnoo were made in February 2017. Because the model was planned to be released in March, this delay did not matter at all.

 

Information about number plates

-

Base model


• It was a base model, but no other version was made based on it.

Differences to other subversion of the simillar model

-

Original dimensions


• Model was based on original dimensions (4160 x 1850 x 1320 mm).

Parts and textures prepared by darewnoo

• The grille pattern, whole blue floor, rear lighting, seats and badges.

Other curiosities


• The boot can not be opened, even though it’s separated.

 

• The bumpers are not separated from the body.

 

• The model does have a fully working lighting, just like the original.

 

• The model was based on 51 pictures (and renders) of the body and 24 pictures (and renders) of the interior of the real prototype. It is worth mentioning that the real prototype is a bladder, so to compensate that in the media, Daewoo has published a lot of renders of the original 3D model made back in the 1999, which can be seen on this clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-euJfm78kY . The old official renders were also used during the work on our model.

 

• Even though the car does not have a lot of textures, nearly all of them were made by darewnoo.

 

• A big problem was to make the dark headlights to light brightly during the night. Darewnoo finally dealt with that at the end of the work progress. Also in the end, a realistic light texture was added, which was a single color during the most of the work time.

 

• During testing on November 7 (mentioned on website as March 23) darewnoo found an error – fire coming out of the front, when the Mirae was a rear engined car. Day after, this bug was fixed and the fire is coming correctly from the back.

 

• Before the fixes, the model had a standard chassis texture, not really adequate for this type of vehicle.

 

• From the very beginning, the model was replacing Infernus. The handling and most of the colors are from it. The Mirae was ment to have all colors from Infernus, but two days after the release, some of them were replaced by different colors that fit better for Mirae. Finally, following colors are from Infernus – light green, dark red, dark blue, dark green, violet and silver. The removed colors (dark sea blue, white and a different tone of dark green) were replaced by new, brighter colors made by darewnoo – orange, light sea blue, cherry red, two tones of beige, brown, red and two tones of silver. This in total gives 15 colors (see pic), even though the original prototype was only available in one color – silver. The orange and light sea blue colors are only available in Daewoo colors app, because they are not original colors from GTA IV. Before the fixes, the model had a standard chassis texture, not really adequate for this type of vehicle. During testing on November 7 (mentioned on website as March 23) darewnoo found an error – fire coming out of the front, when the Mirae was a rear engined car. Day after, this bug was fixed and the fire is coming correctly from the back.

 

• It is the first Mirae made for GTA, as well as the first 3D model of it publicly available.

 

• The final textures were later corrected by me (darewnoo).

 

• The curiosities for this model were never available on old mods.darewnoo.pl (2012-2016).
