Hi!

 

Also there are some wheels in the data or models folder (i don't know which one. Try searching for wheels.dff in SA folder). U can Merge it with ur currenc scene. You need to do some linkin though... (just once)

 

I hope it helped you....

I tried your tutorial and it worked pretty good except for a few minor problems. First of all, when i converted the sabre turbo from vice city to san andreas, it has too much of a shiny look. I have tired a lot of things to get that shiny look to be more subdued or go away, but i couldn't. Another problem is the windows are not see through. Finally, i used the stock wheels form vice city, i added it in a similar way to the way you said, and i rescaled them to be the right size. They appear much too big on the car. Any ideas?

Hi there!

 

Sorry for the late post...

 

For the wheel problem i think you have to modify the vehicle config (handlling lines). I dont know exactly wich is refferred to the wheels scale. I suggest Ultimate editor or a similar program for this.

The windshield's texture have to be edited or simply deleted. If you deleted it create a new one for it and play with the the opacity... ( you can see through the broken window so leave the damaged window as it is) For all this use the built in material editor. (you can bring it up with the key "M")

Uhh i dont know really how to fix the reflection problem tounge.gifblush.gif Try asking it the Texture & Modelling forum or in the Vehicles forum.

yes whar plunk said and for the wheels i think you gotta change the -1 to a 0 then the next is like 0.7 or something make it smaller to fit it

for example the stallion line

 

439, stallion, stallion, car, STALLION, STALION, null, poorfamily, 10, 0, 3210, -1, 0.7, 0.7, 0

 

3210, -1, 0.7, 0.7, 0

you see the -1 you switch to a 0 then you modify the 0.7 both of them

3210, 0, 0.5, 0.5, 0

like that and for the reflections either remap it with sa ones but if you dont know how yet replace the reflection texture in the sabre.txd with a black one and there done but it wont have reflections

 

or if you want to scale the wheels a faster and esier way just scale them the size you want them in gmax place them then reset xform and export

edit----------

see this is how it will look ingame if you remap it with a 2nd uv map and spec highlight looks sortof orange but that happened when i saved the pic

Hi!

 

Sometimes Gmax wants to play with us! notify.gifbiggrin.gif

 

Well to the serious part... I don't know why some parts of the model like the boot, door's material goes wrong....... You can solve this problem that you select only 1 part at a time and export it until you find the wrong part(s) [rarely more parts are messed up sarcasm.gif ]. If you found all the bad parts you have to reamap them. You select the wrong part and open Material editor and the material from that part and simply delete it. Before deleting it you should know which textures did it use. In the material navigator search for the same textures in other material and apply it on the part. Thats it... Now try to export it.

 

(I admit this may NOT BE THE BEST OR SIMPLIEST solution but i hate giving up something so this lead to my final solution)

 

For more information ask the scripts creator why it happens. You will find him in this forum called AK-73

 

plunk89

 

 

... so i suggest trying out 3ds max....

 

Someone can't afford such programs just for hobby.

Hi,

 

I followed this tutorial exactly (including using the Maffia Sentinel), and my converted model does not show up in SA -- actually, when I spawn a Sentinel, it does not even appear! On the first page, in 2007, somebody else had this problem, but solved it, without posting the solution, sadly sad.gif

 

Does anybody know what could be wrong? By the way, in my case, it does show up in GGMM, so the .dff format itself is correct. Also, the TXDs are compressed.

 

EDIT: Jippee, got it to work! The answer: don't delete 'taillights'

Hi!

 

What wheel model/texture did you use? I think the problem is with the texture of the wheel. Does it have the same name in the Material applieod ont the wheel's texture and in the TXD file? Some more screens from Gmax, (Materila editor/library) and TXD workshop would be more helpful.
