Below you can find official interesting curiosities related to this model and version. Tab "curiosities" has been additionaly expaned by few segments, thanks to that you can find specific information easier. Additionally, unlike the old site, some curiosities may have pictures showcasing it.

* Curiosities for each models have been written from scratch and there are a lot more of them than on old mods.darewnoo.pl


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. Thanks to that there is no more chaos like on old, violet mods.darewnoo.pl. Both curiosities and work progress are related to the first model from GTA IV.

Curiosities related to the working progress of the model


• The work on this model took place from January 28 to March 18, 2013 (with breaks).

• The work on Caro Plus started the same day the previous model was finished (Joyster).

Information about number plates

• It was our first model to feature polish number plates with correct font. This model has also introduced another, older type of the polish plates (black plates). CP on white plates stands for Caro Plus, while 51 is an accidental number. 0011 on black plates means that this is the 11th model ordered by mods.darewnoo.pl.

Base model


• It was a base model for 11 further versions.

Differences to other subversion of the simillar model

-

Original dimensions


• Model was based on original dimensions (4369 x 1420 x 1650 mm).

Parts and textures prepared by darewnoo

• upholstery, registration plate and clock texture

Other curiosities


• Original colours for this model were matched in two weeks (see first pic).

• It was our first model with two different rim types to choose.

• It was the first model, where the final textures were corrected by me (darewnoo).

• The model was released in three different versions. The first version had a couple of major bugs and was quickly removed and a fix called “Final” appeared a day later. The further development of the car appeared later in a package with all Polonez Plus cars and was called “V2” (see second pic).

• During the work on the model, Lazlow had made an incorrect air conditioning panel, since he made the panel used in 00-02 versions. He later made another panel from 97-99 models, but the first one was not removed and was later used in other versions such as Truck Plus. (see third pic)

• The alloy rim had to be made twice, since at the first attempt, it looked more like the hubcap from Daewoo Matiz than the proper rim. Lazlow acknowledged his mistake and made the same rim again from scratch (see fourth pic). The same rims were also used in the Lanos 3d 1997 version.
