* 2 extras

* Fully SA-MP and MTA compatible

I tried to list as many as issues as I could think of -

 

 

 

1. Camera angles seems too high. ( Maybe make views from Interior view )

 

2. Maybe size should be bigger. ( In camparison with some cars and CJ it looks small )

 

3. Real car sounds should be a optional MOD choice.

Mod of the year? tounge.gif

biggrin.gif thanks dude, that comment made my day rah.gif

 

i am currently working on the damage.. bashing stuff with a big hammer in zmodeler tounge.gif i will post some pics as soon as its ready to see...

at the moment, it looks like it was attacked by ninjas panic.gif

 

i have also figured out 3 levels of damage without any cleo or scripting, so i am going nuts cutting everything up and attaching it to things..

at the moment, it only affects the rear lights, but it may be spread to other things as well...

 

next on the list is the diffuse lights on the dashboard, after a cup of tea and blast round san andreas to test the damage smile.gif

That is sick, love old Fords like that, my dad had a plain old Sierra Sapphire and stuck a Cosworth body kit on it during what I assume was a mid-life crisis, even had the red badges and everything tounge.gif

thanks for the comments everybody smile.gif

 

i have updated my first post with new bugs and some more info.

i worked all night last night on the damaged parts.. they are mostly done now, and include 3 levels of damage on some bits:

 

after the damaged front bumper comes off, there are dangly fog lights that swing about smile.gif

also, the rear lights break in 3 stages at the moment. i might tweak them a bit more though..

the bonnet and doors are not finished yet, but i think the bumpers and boot are damaged enough now tounge.gif

 

@Timske, im not sure about the toy on the dash, its quite a lot of polys already tounge.gif

 

@Nik, next on my list is my Fiesta XR2, then the Wingy Dinghy, then a mod that i have been keeping secret for months.. i will announce it soon.. after that, im not sure.. maybe a volvo amazon estate (like the one i posted in PPC) maybe something different.. i haven't decided yet..

 

@SWYV, i know the game is set in america, but where i come from, we drive on the left tounge2.gif its a big job to get cars to work properly as RHD, but i think it looks better... turn.gif

 

@-beeblebrox- WyeAye, definitely a good choice of mid life crisis mobile lol.gif

 

@junox, i added your temperature gauge bug to my list.. well spotted.. i will fix it when i add the diffuse lights to the dashboard smile.gif

 

 

anyway, here are some pics of the new damage biggrin.gif (lol yes, they are huge again, but i do hate thumbnails)

some of you may have spotted the lame framerate in the top left of a lot of my screenshots. this is due to me not having a very good PC, and running it on max specs for the purposes of taking nice screenshots.. (also, ENB series is a resource hog)

if you turn some settings down, it runs fine biggrin.gif

I don't think many of us will be bothered about it, I just let you know you could make it perfect.

 

Maybe make a version with tinted windows, but if you do that then would you take the interior away becuase that would mean a lot less poly.

 

Probably wouldn't even need to make a lower poly version after doing that.

 

What do you use to lower poly?

Holy crap, good work, as always. I love the details in the interior and I'm also in love with the damage parts. You did a great job once again, mate wink.gif. Take some cookies: cookie.gifcookie.gif

to lower polys in zmodeler, its easy.. just build it again with less polys biggrin.gif

it takes bloody ages, but its the only way..

 

i wont be doing it all again, i plan to remove a few poly-heavy objects for the "lite" version, as well as shrinking the textures to 25% and rebuilding some sections.

i think the seats and interior will come out, and will probably be replaces with some basic seats from one of my old mods, and a basic steering wheel.. but i will leave the dashboard in, as its fairly low polycount..

 

also, the engine would come out, and the detailed underside and suspension would all be turned into a flat sheet of nothing.

i think i could almost half the polycount by doing this, but it would lose some of its magic.

 

still, its a necessary evil, i suppose... slow PCs and all that... tounge.gif

thanks dude smile.gif om nom nom nom.. good cookies lol.gif

i am quite pleased with the damage so far, i think it needs some tweaks, but it looks pretty beaten up (which is exactly what i was aiming for).

as for the interior, its my best one yet (i think), i am most pleased with the result..

i will post some of my reference pics later so you can compare for yourself

 

also, i will keep ticking things off the list in my original post as they get done.. as soon as most of it is done, i will update the beta...

 

-- edit --

 

as promised, here are some of my reference pics so you can compare them with the model (Thanks for these Rupert, they were a great help)

(yes, they are massive again, but it saves you having to click them all and wait for 10 windows to open)

i posted on a guest book on an RS500 site that i found, and the owner replied and sent me loads of massive uber-hi res photos of his RS-500.

(thanks again Rupert)

 

there is a link to his site on the download page for the RS500

 

for scirocco pics, maybe try finding a VW forum that deals with sciroccos that worked wonders for my XR2, i posted asking for help on an XR2 forum, and got loads of replies with pics.. its much easier than trawling the net for weeks looking for reference pics..

also, ebay is very good sometimes for dashboards and interior bits.. just be sure to set it to "worldwide"

 

- = - = - Edit - = - = -

 

wow, lol i only just noticed the third part of your comment.. thanks dude biggrin.gif

 

i tried Maya once, and it was just "WOAH WTF WTF too many buttons!!! @%$`#~" so i uninstalled it

i haven't tried max yet as its a bit pricey, and i already bought zModeler, so i might as well stick with it..

zModeler does most stuff, but you have to take the scenic route normally as it lacks some functions lol.gif

 

Version 0.95 Beta or my Sierra RS500 is uploaded now on gtagarage.com

Could you make a police version of this Ford RS500?

 

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Scalextric-C362-Ford...1#ht_1373wt_912

hmm, i quite like that idea tounge.gif

 

the only problem is that san andreas police cars have 4 doors, so i would have to make some invisible doors for it, so it doesn't crash the game...

i might do a police version of my Soviet Taxi mod too rolleyes.gif

 

- - - Edit - - -

 

i made a start on a police version, just set it up and added invisible back doors, and a quick in-game test...

i still have to make the lights on the roof, and all the police stickers..

 

also tonight, i finished the fiesta.. well almost.. i built the dashboard, and fixed all sorts of problems.. i will do some more testing, and release an update within the next few days biggrin.gif

I was thinking of a British style RS500 police car, it would be epic to see a San Andreas version biggrin.gif

 

Do you have any plans to make a concept out of any of your models, for example Estate RS500

What do you think about a RC version of this RS500, yay mini cosworth!!!!!!!!

an RC version would be possible, but its a lot of polygons as it is, so it would be mega-overkill if i shrank it.. i would probably have to build it all again for a mini version..

 

the police version got started the other day, so far it has some red/orange stripes, but thats all so far.

unfortunately i have too much work to do any modding this week...

 

i have a few police version of things planned (including a sierra and a fiesta, and a version based on my crazy Soviet Taxi)

 

as always, keep an eye on my website for updates... tounge.gif

 

 

-- edit --

 

sorry i didnt answer your other post, im not sure about concepts really, its such a massive task making a car accurately, normally once i have fixed all the bugs, i want to escape and make something completely different..

lol, too much ford is enough to make anybody crazy panic.gif

thanks BigFoot biggrin.gif

if you like this, you should try my Fiesta XR2, it was built along side this, and is about the same level of detail...

 

 

It was a long 6 months building this.. i almost went crazy from looking at the same thing for too long... suicidal.gifmercie_blink.gif

(note, crazy is relative.. i was already crazy, but building this and the fiesta XR2 made me even more nuts panic.gif )

 

a police version will probably appear soonish, but i dont want to set any dates or deadlines, i hate being rushed..
