[WIP|CON|VC] Hachura/Wrecked Car Revival
Bringing It Back From The Scrap Heaps...
I am in the process of finishing an old incomplete mod of which I was Resurrecting the Hachura/Burnt Out Wrecked Car, below is an image illustrating what vehicle I am talking about if you are not sure, the top image is the Map Object you see placed around Vice, LC and Perhaps also SA which appears to be (or Heavily Resemble) the Hachura which was (or was believed to be) an early Beta of the Idaho from GTA III.
The Image above of this car is the only one ever released that depicted it with that front, all the earliest In Game pictures and footage show what appears to be the same vehicle but with a different front end better resembling the final Idaho with other minor changes, an upside of these early shots is it gives me an idea of what the back looks like which is well, an Idaho.
My Goal for this project is not to restore the vehicle to its GTA III Beta state but to take what R* left and make it a new vehicle in its own right with a personality of its own, I am going to make it for Vice City and as such give the Body Vice City Textures not Plain III Beta or Regular III, It is more like I am aiming for what the car would look like if it was made for Vice City to begin with, so the front of the vehicle has its own unique styling as it is which leaves me with the dilemma of the rear, do I make it follow the styling of the images above, or do it similar to the above images but with a more unique less Idaho look to it.
Possibly I might put the rear License Plate on the boot where the Diamond is instead of the Bumper as on the Burnt Out Scenery the bumper does not have the indent for the license plate... decisions, decisions...
Well Anyway here is the current progress showing what I started with and what I currently have.
I stripped all the parts off the car as it was one large clump and am slowly pounding out the dents and filling in the gaps left incomplete, I chose one side of the car which I deemed to be the correct side and have only worked on that and then used the symmetry modifier to fill in the other side as one side of the vehicle was slightly more crushed and looked wrong compared to the other, it may not look like it in the pictures but I have almost completed the whole front third of the vehicle, that is to say that the engine is now there, those front wings detach and I have filled in the gaps correctly so when they detach the engine is still blocked in and you cant see into the engine and out the other side of the car, all that needs doing is the front bumper (And Damage Parts).
I really only need to decide on a design for the rear and make that then all that will be left is the interior and making a new roof or fixing the old one, apart from that everything has so far been remodeled and re-textured. Also the whole car needs smoothing, I don't mean the Poly Smoothing, I mean the Lighting on it needs smoothing with all the welding and redone polys there is dark spots all over as you can see above so please don't pick me up on those.
I hope to complete this project this time
