Strangely enough, I was working on a 1997 car pack for GTA V (but it was gonna use both vanilla and real car). I actually got pretty far, until Rockstar updated the game and broke everything. Also carface, have you thought about doing a 1995-1997 crown vic for you next vehicle, since Lundy has abandoned his.
I really love America until 2001. If Lundy love details and authencity - i love atmosphere in common. I work on global mod, where all emergency vehicle's replaced by their analogs by eras.
Lozano71 asking me to make a police version of my diplomat, i haven't give him an answer yet because you haven't finished yet, I dont know what kind of police vehicle he specialized.
I have 3 different packs, 1970's, 1980's, 1990's . They have common idea, but own dlc's and vehicles. Also i do popgroups for all eras, so no new car's in game.
"police" is AMC Matador, Chevrolet Caprice 1989, Chevrolet Caprice 1995
"police2" is Plymoth Belvedere 1965, Ford LTD 1984 (will be Chevrolet Impala 1985), Chevrolet Caprice 1990/1991
"police3" is Dodge Polara 1971, Ford LTD Crown Victoria 1987, Ford Crown Victoria 1996.
Same thing for sheriff's, hwaycar's north yankton state police and other vehicles. Also i work on agencies from RDE, like airport, port usaf and del perro police. And also i work and will work on Liberty and Vice City police.
Shortly, i do a big mod which turn game in 1970's, 1980's or 1990's. I'm inspired by movies like Fargo, gone in a 60 seconds, wanishing point, Alone in home ( ), Rush Hour. 3D universe GTA games, Driver 1&2, World Scariest Police Chases.
I rarely write on forums because I'm shy. I do not think that I'm professional enough for this work. But I do it as I can, in my pleasure. But main thing for me is doing videos, machinimas. I will do it more when finish my pack.
Also, i started to work with peds. Here my first work. (thanks totoline66 for authentic coat texture). Lundy, look, there is your old hat and badge texture!
I don't do converts or models from scratch, but sometimes do templates and fix bugs on different vehicles. For example this ford origially was really bugged. and haven't correct collisions.
Release of my pack planned not earlier than spring-summer, i need to work with 80's cars. So Lundy anyway do own releases faster than me. (and i hope there will be Dodge Diplomat and 1991 Chevrolet Caprice Police Package DEV version)
So, i hope i'll got your permission.
Hmm, My next ford is going to be a 1972 full size, but again it depends on reference photos....
