@Cai-pirinha: Hey, thanks smile.gif I spose I could do one, but there's this one here by Cran.

 

@Silberio: Nope I never finished this model for GTA. It was all sorted to go into NFS4 before the plug on the LeMans mod was pulled. I don't like it enough to bother trying to convert it across, I'd rather re-make it...not that I've got plans just yet to do so. Maybe in the future.

Note to all using this tutorial: Just use a decent graphics package like Photoshop or Paintshop Pro if you want, as long as the exported images are the same.

 

In fact, I have decided, considering the amount of questions I get asked about this tutorial either via PM or MSN, I am to remake this tutorial and add other sections to it. My plan is to run it alongside creation of a Myriad Islands car, and hopefully log everything from choosing blueprints up to getting it in game. I plan to start work on this soon.

I'll try to make my car box shaped, though really I don't need to use a boxy car when doing the tutorial, just choose a boxy car yourself as it generally requires less fiddling to get it looking right.

 

Still, I spose if i choose a car that the user can also do and thus compare their model to mine as they progress in the tutorial then it might get me less "I'm stuck what do I do?" questions.

I see you've found how to move vertices using the side and top views. To make polygons curve, just do a mixture. A vertex can be moved in any axis, to any position you want. Use this to curve vertices around bends etc. Also curvy parts of cars naturally need more polygons than flat parts.

As I've said, Create>Faces>Single to add more polygons to existing Surfaces, the Modify move and use all 3 views to move the Vertices (red dots) where you want em. Make sure you're in Vertices mode of course for that. Vertices mode is explained in the tutorial.

To make the other side of the bus, select>all the object, Press the space bar to turn on "SEL" mode, thenCreate>Objects>Copy. Next, Modify>Reorient this new object, then make sure only the "H" of the "H", "V" and "D" buttons are selected at the top, then Modify>Mirror and Mirror the object in either front OR top view.

 

You'll have mirrored the other side of the coach.

Firstly, Select>All when in objects mode to select everything

 

Hit the space bar (to make sure the "SEL" button is selected)

 

Create>Objects>Copy

Modify>Mirror

Modify>Reorient

 

Tadaa, the other side of the car!

 

I'll explain it better if you need me to.

U need something to open and edit the txd files then edit the skin of the hydra in the txd file (hydra.txd in gta3.img) u will also need imgtool to open the .img archive, then with a adobe photo shop or something like that program edit the skin of the hydra.

Just google the tools if you can't find them.
