(Oh yeah, IMO anyone who would post a bitchy problem with "spoilers" needs to stay the hell out of editing areas or possibly just stay off the net altogether, but given that there's always one, consider this a tag to that effect... then again, I only played for like a day. Whatever, disclaimered.)
So it seems SA cars don't have that retarded "damaged wings" sh*t that I hate so venomously, that's a big plus to me, I just hated them so utterly. Subframing the chassis is easy, but the meeting point of the flanks and firewall looks like total bullsh*t every time, I'm glad they went with that.
So in short I'm thinking a lot of people are sh*t out of luck for modding SA, the cars are a real improvement, and any mods that are currently just scraping by on the "looks ok... given what game it's in" basis, are going to stick out like a sore thumb. Seems a pretty good level of detail, be interested to learn some polycounts for these cars, some don't look so high, others do. General prognosis is R* finally got their thumb out of their ass I suppose. Bumpers are f*cking great, I'm still having trouble telling if that's just handled by a very nicely set up pivot, or if the bumpers are indeed flexing, it's probably the former, but given that it looks like the latter, that's some nice work... seems to be more muscle available too, which is kinda nice. Also been pondering how the lamps and lights are now being handled by the game mechanics, those are really good. I'm also thinking given the sheer size of areas like the Bone & Red counties, and the area south of San Fierro, we can fit this entire thing into a valley and noone would ever know, unless they stumbled over it... hmm.
And at least 3 nice rigs to choose from... I'm liking the Roadtrain meself
Quad bikes and the new BF Injection might have some interesting applications re; all those strange little tubeframe vehicles...
808: Looks like a hammer catch to me.
Here's that list that was asked about. Well, that list was sent, here's a more public one. I had to "do an inventory" anyways, so I listed the Mad Max vehicles and a couple of props too, and who knows what might become applicable (this however remains a Road Warrior mod. If that were to change it'd be 808 saying so anyways, I only work here ), some stuff is included for curiosity's sake, you can probably work out what is and isn't relevant. Corrections and revisions are welcome, but please try to phrase them in a civil manner, righteous indignation is not conductive to communication. I already reformatted it once for vertical length reasons, but it's still fairly spammy. Be forewarned.
*cuts and pastes big ass list*
Entries followed by (?) require completion.
Some entries are included for the sake of reference or other misc. reasons, omissions are made due to lack of general relevance, or oversight. Omission example = Road Warrior music box.
Majority of information is author knowledge and/or referenced from the relatively comprehensive listing found at www.madmaxmovies.com.
Vehicles or props marked * are modified, those marked ** are heavily modified or custom built.
As the list grows, corrections or revisions are ongoing. Also I realised that at least in terms of Road Warrior, the "modified" notes are largely redundant, most everything is modified somehow, I continued using them for no apparent reason.
