if anyone could help me with this reflection i'm going to ask permission for the release on gta san andreas. i will convet it to accept all modding part's in arch angels and have ago on adding the 3 txd files. this car is really detailed it even has a seperate bulb for the small light's on the bottom of the bumper. I am heading for a road version and a

toca touring car racer. that's if permission is ok.

Looks similar or close to a simple case of really really sh*tty specular, you can see vertex based ugliness all over the accused picture, which would be down to bad handling of the mesh by whoever set up the smooth groups dozingoff.gif


Shrug, maybe you should get those permissions before trying to play around with the car.

Thank's Augh

so does this mean it's stuck like that or could you tell me how to fix it.

i was going to ask permission when i got rid of this problem but if i can't get rid of it

i'm just going to stop with the conversion and there for no need to ask permission.


but i would be very greatfull if you could tell me what need's doing to the vehicle.

Hey Augh thank's alot mate you steered me in the right way

i fixed it, i went in to the mesh in the modifier list and just collapsed

the area which was problem.


(Personel Note)

I don't know why some poeple think converting car's is wrong

because it open's door's to novice modeler's and learn how

gta is put together and made.


Once again thank's Augh

Wow, it really was that. Or something connected. Truly I think it was more likely coincidence.


I'm glad you're learning the ropes, but there's truly much better ways. I'm probably speakin to deaf ears though. Just remember to keep up the respecting permissions thing, that's a good start.


Hehe the hailing is gratifying but a little misplaced possibly lol.gif

Thank's augh, i'm looking in to try modeling for myself but you info really helped me

because i really wanted to get rid of that bug because this audi is really cool

and the reflection is second to none.

I would post a picture of it but there's just been a new rule pinned 'bummer man'

but my next job is getting in touch with the author and asking permssion to release it.

So whatch this space.
