Macchina Calabria 227 - Alienware Edition

Recommended Posts

This brand new vehicle is really an 🍷exquisite piece of machinery 🍷 but there is 1 problem. The name is incorrect. It is supposed to be Macchina Calabria 427 - Alienware Edition. Please fix this as it is a very gamebreaking bug. Also the car can't fit mods.

Gone are the days of the old Macchina Calabria 127. The all new Macchina Calabria 427 series is truly an exquisite piece of machinery from this century, featuring an all new tech-driven livery powered by Alienware.

 

If only they'd have stepped up into the EV market with this model, this would've been a top seller for sure.

so it is a 127? or do you want it to have 4 slots and that's the joke? lul

(127 - 1 slot, 227 - 2 slots, etc. is the naming scheme for calabrias)

yeah, well, guess no one explained LO how car name logic was done.

 

But the inconsistency seemed to have happened with the starter calabria already? because it is a 127 with a car spawner so that one should already be a 227.

And this happened when they took the old 127 starter car and slapped the car spawner in it. But the 127 would have to eman 0 slots.

 

Ok, I just had a look at stuff ingame,

 

looks like G1 screwed up a lot with the newer cars.

In the car kiosk when buying a car the old logic gave the car the name of it's model and number, which indicated the slots.

However the subtext only listed the model

like this

 

<Car Model> <Number>

<Car model>

 

Then later cars have this broken, as the subtext suddenly included the number, but didn't include the correct number

 

see here at the Han veo

iJsoZnG.jpg

 

Below it is the Joker vegas already havign the issue the new cars have. They show also the number, but it keeps not up with the cars number.

 

 

But honestly, if the new system would be adjusted it would be better since currently your garage looks like this:

So when you rename your cars, you cannot see anymore which true car it actually is (see my car named "hunting Bee"  or the Bishada Kissaki) the subtext of my vegas is wrong because it is a G24, and the Kissaki just like the old system lists  only the car model, so I cannot see how much slots it has. Sure usually you know your cars, but generally it would be better if they rework that and give the subtext the correct <Modelnamme> <Number> wher ethe number is slotrelated and not a fixed relatioj to the basic 0 slot model.

 

my battle bee for example is now incorrectly sublabelled as 127 because it has 4 slots.

This is incorrect. The 127 is the default car given to you when you create a new character (with a preset car spawner in it). The 227 is the 1 slot, the 327 is the 2 slot, the 427 is the 3 slot, etc.

g1 broke that, 127 was and is by the logic of slots the 0 slot cars number. When G1 decided newbies should have a little help and the starter car was given the car spawner no one remembered that logic and so they just forgot to change the numer to fit their logic. which then corretly would have been 227.

 

Just go to the kiosks and check the broadwings for exple.

 

basic car is 110  every slot adds a 1 till you are at 114.

every preset broadwing lists the number correctly in relation to how many slots are filled. "Broadwing B101 patrols" has a single installed mod and that is exactly how the number logic is supposed to be.

the players I see with it only have a carspawner in it so I think it is a one slot version, therefore should be 227 as OP said it should be.

1 question. @Lixil @MattScott 

 

Why is the car character bound, but I'm unable to redeem multiple codes to get one for each character?

I don't understand the 0 slots = 127 thing. The Han Veo in the picture shows the opposite - Han Veo = 0 slots, Han Veo 120LX = 1 slot, 220LX = 2slot, etc?

 

If the Calabria 0slot starter was always the 127 the complaint makes sense but then with G1 adding the Spawner onto it turning it into a 1slot doesn't that mean that G1 fixed the naming convention or am I missing a detail?

I actually like the car and the Calabria is insanely efficient for what it does - free spawn unit. Considering 90% of games where you use a Spawner some jerk is going to move that car right up against the objective effectively nullifying its spawning slot being able to respawn it for $0 makes it so much more versatile. Players also leave them alone, if you've got a 4x4 armoured Vegas or giant Pioneer 9/10 times the player spawning in it is going to want to ride that thing to the objective or way too close to the enemy. If they spawn in a Calabria? They jump out and avoid that shitty lawnmower like the plague - it's too slow and weak for anything other than a free spawn. Every time I am near a Car Spawn on mission I just hit E and inflate one of those bad boys and I'm all set for a random spawn point. Even better when I spawned one 2 missions ago and it's still sitting in some obscure corner where it becomes relevant again when a totally different mission arrives. It's the perfect spawn and forget vehicle.

Hi all,

 

This was our first attempt at putting in a new vehicle, and it looks like there is a bug.

We are going to be fixing that asap.

 

Thanks,
Matt

He's not really being savage, he's just being realistic. I personally agree with him: a person who's never heard of or played APB is more valuable to G1 than a person who's decided it's a bad game and uninstalled it.

I honestly like the idea of a exclusive car with alienware design. Especially for new players its interesting cuz it has 3 slots. I would not mind about a mikro (as example) with 1 slot and special design but exclusively for player who create/created a new APB Account. (And ofc not as soon as all important updates got released)

Hi Bro, i had no Issues to get a car code for myself. I think you should try again to get one. I am from Germany too and some mates also got the code.
