Instantly reminded me of the old Vice City days with your models, such as the Caprice and LTD

The only way to get over the resolution problem is to enlarge my light textures from 512 to 1024. There is a trick to get over it. The a texture have to be proportioned with the canvas size. So if you got a light texture with pixel size of 128X128 and you put it on two different canvas (one is 256 and the other is 512) If my theory is correct, the one from 256 will have much sharper quality than the one from 512.
I am busy at work and someone asked me to do a conversion and preventing me to put any significant progress. Once i get over this conversion thing, you expect to see more progress.

made subtle tweaks over that hiatus....
now partially resumed....hopefully good times rolls again. Now stops at 72K tri's. LOD being modeled and optimized. Texturing is 80% complete.
deathproofdodgefan, tempting depends how my mood and time goes...
Oldsmobile_85 on cop cars more likely.

@ Blitz I'll deal the tough part getting it to gta4, then SA later.
@ occupant my co worker used to have a 97 gmarquis and he fitted with police bullbar, all the road hogs on fast lane moved aside for him.

I been in a cave for so long, I didn't know about the Taxi bug, since i only installed 3-4 mods in my GTA4 and fairly lowish graphical settings, except the screen resolution (no ENB).
sigh, sorry i forgot to show the hood and misread my polycount, the actual number is about 75K, so I perform some crash diet on it, managed to shave about 1000 tris, since some of the texture shadowing allows me to remove a bit more tris without ruining the looks a bit.
I am a little confused with the polycount, is it supposed to be the primary models + LODs = total polycount or just the primary model?
EDIT: I made further reduction now 73622 tri's, ill try to find more useless edges.

It looks like youve done this many times, but if your interested my current workflow to get the car ready for export is:
- combining the model to one,
- sending to Zmod
- scaling and positioning the car to look right.
- exporting it back to Maya
- scale original car in maya to roughly match imported scaled mesh.
it works really fast and no messing around in Zmod after exporting the parts.
Just got to assign the correct materials.
before the Obj plugin I always had to mess around with .3ds files exporting from Max and having to fix normals was really offputting...
mayas obj exporter seems to preserve all the normal information pretty well

I've been reworking one of my first mods last month. (Almost done). But that LTD is Pumbars' one.
When this is done would it be okay if I left that one behind and do yours?
I can tell yours is way more detailed.
EDIT: Oh, to ensure you won't see me as one of the ordinairy noobs, here's a link that shows all my work:
I also converted your great bus and Caprice to GTA IV. I did a lot with your Caprice, and I am also reworking it to improve the quality.

|Wow, it looks like you're still making amazing looking vehicles. You and I worked on that K/5 years ago, right? Send me a PM when you get a chance.|
I remember clearly I learn how to put live axle from you

You've got it. But seeing what you're capable of, I am sure you can do it! Looking forward to this.
