Vehicle modification

Recommended Posts

Ok After San Andreas added the feature modding cars in games like hydrolics, spray paint, rims and etc. how will GTA 4 up the anti from that last game? Possible car tattoo folder uploads like the User Track Tittles? Official R* releases to add more to edit the cars even more? Submit arts to R* and the Winners are in an official download on the web for GTA 4? Give Ideas how the car modding engine might work in game and plus will other mod features from other games appear in GTA like neon lights under the car or on the hood? Also will R* go far enough where we can mod Boats, Helicopters and etc?

I'd like to see...

 

Chips (for newer cars)

Bigger carbs (older cars)

Turbochargers

Superchargers

Nitro

Engine swaps

Better exhaust systems (with better sounds!)

Improved air filters

Capacity increases

Close-ratio gearboxes (quicker acceleration)

Convert to FWD, RWD or 4WD

Stiffen and adjust height of suspension for better handling

Convert to different suspension types (no more leaf springs on the back of that Idaho!)

Sports tyres for better grip

Seperate height settings for the rear to change the stance

(and loads of other mechanical things i can't think of)

Hydraulics

Neon underlights in several colours

At least 50 alloy wheels (some can have spinners, about 10 kinds of those)

At least 20 steels

10 cheap plastic hubcap covers

A full spectrum of respray colours (like selecting colours in photoshop)

Matte, Gloss, Metallic, Pearlescent and Flip (colour change at different angles) paint

Some cars can be changed to be 2-door, convertible, estates (station wagons) or saloons (sedans), vans, webasto roofs (glass and fabric) and stretched

At least 100 vinyls (special paintjobs)

Stickers that can be put in different places

At least 10 seperate front/rear and side bodykit parts per car (5 generic ones for all cars, 5 special ones for that 'class' of car)

2-3 Different kinds of foglights and configurations to put them on the front of the car. You can leave the covers on them (for show) or have them with covers off (and they work)

At least 15 kinds of spoiler

2-3 kinds of bonnet vents, different positions for them

5 kinds of airscoops for bonnet and roof (if it has a roof!). Bonnet ones include the 'big metal air filter sticking up through the bonnet' like the Diabolo stallion

Different textures for the seats (leapord skin!)

Put in racing seats and a rollcage to make the car stiffer and lighter

Cheesy acessories like furry dice, "fingers stuck in the boot", stick-on bullet holes (or make your own XD) and funny bumper stickers

Customise your own licence plate (IVRULZ)

wow thats alot oipolloi.

but i thought san andreas had all i wanted maybe if we could mod every vehicle including semi-trucks, fire trucks etc. and add the option to put spinners on cars, lambo doors, neons inside card doors, custom interriors, option to put top down on convertible (while driving). maybe custom car horns, custom tire size, and thats about it.

Whoa oipolloi I bet you named everything off of everyones Lists ^,^ Seeing a Bus with Neon Lights Driving around Liberty City would be pretty nice with a bunch of other stuff also. The paint shops where you have to get away from the cops >,< I hate them replacing my engines for me. I bet they get theirs from a junk yard and when you need to get away from the cops in your sports car like a cheetah, or a banshee then you drive away with a bunch of sludge in the junky new engine...grrrr. Also they should have the car horn from "The Dukes of Hazzard" in the game or a PimP car horn

Heh, they should keep the pay & spray which just sticks a new colour on your car (though if you have a custom paintjob it should keep the custom paint but change the colours on it, like blue flames) and knocks out the dents, and have a mod shop for the serious stuff (And only one KIND of mod shop too, it pissed me off having to do up a lowrider in Los Santos and having it wrecked before i could get to any of the other cities in it). There should be maybe 1 modding shop and 2-3 respraying shops for every 'island'

 

Oh yeah, i got most of my list from the modifiable stuff on Midnight Club 3 XD

I would have a garage, hell 4 garages, loaded with WRX STIs and 300c's. The 300c's purley DUBed out, and the STI's with the Fast and the Furious Sh*t.

SA was pretty good, but IV should have more stuff to make the cars more unique. Also having the parts affect the proformance of the car, and not just add up to eye candy.

 

Also having your car not evaporate when you take 10 steps away and turn your back would be good.

I'm sure they'll want to do better than Saints Row - which means some insane cosmetic cusomisation and hopefully some deep performance customisation as well.

Vehicle modding should be like in the Street Rods; you should be able to strip parts from cars, buy other parts, rare parts etc etc, then store them, sell them, get them repaired, or install them in cars. Something like that anyway...after all, the game revolves around the mobility and flexibility of cars...as stated by the "Auto" in Grand Theft Auto.

I reckon we need more paint options.

Two tone, graphics, custom (uploaded) graphics etc. and some performance parts!

You were able to do that in SanAn wink.gif

 

I think that with the expandability of cars in previous GTAs, extensive modification really isn't necessary, this isn't NFSU.

As much as I want a large variety of vehicle customisation, you still got to remember that GTA isn't NFS, so if they do include modification in, don't expect it to be on anything near NFS scale.

I'm starting to get a bit worried that they might not include any modification in IV bored.gif If they do, I really hope we'll be able to tune the engine, although I doubt it'll happen. Bike cusomization icon14.gif

LAWL: Topic Bumping Time.

First of all, the custom grills could be a simple fascia that stretches over the originally texture grill on the car model, installing xenon headlights would be a simple matter of changing the colour and vibrancy of the lamps in the car.

 

What I would have loved to see in San Andreas were chrome wheels: despite them being an icon of 'gangsta' culture, for some reason they weren't included, maybe they had to be high-res to look decent, which the PS2 wouldn't like. But anyway, GTA4 will come on 'next gen' consoles so this doesn't really matter. Attatching spinners would be done using a dummy, though would require a bit of physics programming.

 

I'm not very fond of vinyls, but they do work well on boy racer cars, and custom decals would be great; like in 'Midnight Club : DUB Edition' you can for example stick your name on the windscreen of the car.

 

A very simple to program modification that completely changes the look of any car is adjusting ride height, but this unfortunately wasn't included in GTA:SA either, to get a similar result you had to install hydraulics that disrupt the car's handling.

 

Another moderately simple modification would be to offer alternative taillight textures and the option of smoking in various colours (i.e. you stain or darken the taillight to improve your car's appearance), after all if the next GTA's possibly going to be set in the UK, the first thing boy racers do to their cars here is change their taillights.

 

Window tinting would have been an essential 'gangsta' modification in San Andreas: giving a mysterious and powerful feel to the people inside the car. This would be simple to program as it consists of selecting various polygons and putting them in a 'third colour' that can be changed.

 

Gold or Chrome Wheel Arches and trims could be programmed in a similar way to window tinting (creating a third colour) and looks very effective on luxury cars.

Nice cool.gif Can't Wait till info. about car modding iz released because remember they said the cars ARE more detailed which means the modifications to the cars will stand OUT alot more in the past game and give a greater effect you know.

Why would you want to spend thousands of dollars customising and tuning your car only to have to ditch it in a parking lot to lose the cops, or crash it trying to out run them?
