I guess u just like multi-tasking!! Well heck why not add another one to your task list, I didnt request but I hinted @ a suggestion in the DTS topic moto_whistle.gif
I seen this style of Caprice made already but did not like textures very much, so be sure these are top quality! biggrin.gif

There is actually not much left he can work on. The DTS is done, so is the LTD, almost. So theres only one car left on his list. I dont have a problem with him starting the Caprice instead. biggrin.gif

Its an unofficial project, I been itching with caprice ever since I started the LTD. The movie striking distance had some good reference for both cars.

@schaefft The caprice is harder than it looks, a lot of subtle shapes cannot be ignored. Instead of modeling more parts, instead I spend most of my time just doing corrections. They are boxy, but they also have some subtle character that separates them from other boxy cars like the LTD, Diplomats, St Regis, etc.


@FlashG A re-hash of one of my old gta3/vice city cars. My first GTA3 mod was a 1989 caprice (later converted to vice city)

@costar My old vice city car 1983 Impala made it to GTA4 before my DTS.

@Cessna tomtom In many way, the Monaco was a some kind of cult icon because of Blues Brothers (a movie I hardly seen before except a few scene during channel surfing), but not too fond of 1973-78 full sized cars in general, they are too big, slower and lousier quality (that generation of Monaco and its sisters plagued with manufacturing defects and poor quality control). Tempted to model a 1973 Coronet sedan though.

These cars are looking great, bigfoot! I can't wait to see their police versions in GTAIV. In fact, I've already planned what cars I'll replace: the Police Cruiser with your '96 Caprice, the Police Patrol with the '89 Caprice, and the NOOSE Cruiser with the LTD. tounge.gif

If ever the mood strikes you or you find yourself lacking inspiration, might I suggest a '92 or '96-97 Crown Vic? After all, it is the '96 Caprice's arch nemesis! Just throwing it out there...

Keep it up!

A little bad news, I got busy at work and you guys wont see any significant update.


@perroGtA97 yes it is

@Costar I think I got the word somewhere else.

@ScoobyDoo82 both cars are GTA4 native, SA as my option.

It does look alright IMO, considering the size of the light ingame later.

HA w/ those wheelcovers and darker tint windows it loox like its already on its way to being a cop car tounge.gif
I agree w/ Nik that headlights do look abit low res - might look better ingame I dunno, I'm abit of a stickler for good lights, IMO good lights help a model's appeal, their appearance when lit/not lit and their function.
I think it may be what he means kind of, not that he wants a 10MB wtd but in a way that IF the lights can be made to look nicer as a *base* that ppl wont have to have a high-end pc to see nice textures ?!
I CAN run high txtr on my pc and most stuff on atleast high but then the sliders - detail is like 1-2 suicidal.gif lol, it helps to make lights n things look a little better but some cars already have nicer light textures from the get-go.
For example the headlight texture Chasez put in the CVic vers he released loox higher quality even on atleast medium texture. I dont think it is the reason for 1000 taxi... I think I remember trying a diff wtd but still had the problem, it always seemt to me it was something in the wft itself..
There are other models that have good quality lights that dont do that.
Its not to say these are *bad*, they look abit like R* ingame say like the fortune, stratum etc
I did try an 83 once tho, it said it was your car cnvt by boow but those lights, specifically rear ones were bad IMO, as well as the tire, interior was lo-res, lookt like it was an SA model previously..

He could apply a sharpen filter in photoshop to, well, make the texture sharper without increasing the texture resolution. There are a couple of other ways to reduce the blurriness, always depends on how the result is looking like. Sharpen is the easiest way and works most times tho.

Its a render shot and the anti alias dulls the texture a bit. I probably use aerodynic one from LT caine. It looks like he got an older model.
