Recommended Posts

Hello GTAForums.

This is my first creation.

I`ve made an San Andreas Yosemite with a bigger wheels and longer trunk, but now i have no idea how to convert it back to san andreas.

I have all programs what needed (Zmodeler 2,2,2, 3Dsmax 09 etc.)

looks interesting..

if you want a proper double wheel effect at the back, instead of using tweaked handling lines to make the back wheels fat, you could add:

wheel_lm_dummy and wheel_rm_dummy to add a set of middle wheels,

then put these middle wheels inside the back set.

 

looking from the top, across the rear axle, you would have:

• wheel_rb_dummy

• wheel_rm_dummy

||

|| <-Rear Axle

||

• wheel_lm_dummy

• wheel_lb_dummy

 

something like this:

they should move up and down on the suspension together too, so should look about right.. definitely worth a try anyway tounge.gif

 

im pretty sure this works on most cars, i have successfully used it a few times for 6 wheeled limos,

but i havent tried it for doubled-up back wheels yet.

leik oh em jeez!

@Chong: That's not really the best way to do a dually. Just create your two wheels and combine them to one object. Double up on that method, keeping all wheels on each axle as one object, and you have a lot of flexibility.

@Parmm: The Yosemite could definitely use some improvement as far as the body goes. Rear dually flares like these would look a lot better.

hmm, i see what you mean, but that involves adding a wheel to each dummy, which adds more polys.. (i used a similar method on my Ford Capri)

 

my way makes any 4 wheeled vehicle work with 6 wheels, and only using 1 wheel model rah.gif

for trucks im sure your way is more flexible, but for small vans, i think the double-dummy is preferable tounge.gif

 

(you can see my dually Tempo Matador towtruck here)

the difference in poly count is so small, especially with SA-style wheels, it doesn't really make a difference. Combining them to one object will ensure that they act as one wheel though. With two dummies you risk having separate pivot points.
