The basses are the only instruments I took from the game itself :p

 

Maybe you're right, but if you're also a man of C U L T U R E like I am, you probably notice how Fender basses are sorta bigger compared to Strats. I'll look into it soon though. :)

This is what I thought at first. Anti shared pictures of a similar-looking truck with MTL logos a few months ago.

thb I actually never pay much attenton to the bass. ;)

universetwisters is right. It's loosly based on the first gen Mack R Series. I used the Packer as a base. (Thinking about changing the grille and front so it does not stand out that much and locks more like the Mack)

Well I showed the truck here about six weeks ago or so but it definitely didn't have MTL badges. The only differences are the tank, exhaust and altered back of the cab with rear window iirc (last time I worked on these vehicles is about a month ago)...

The rock city building is cool and all but the semi and ambulance made me think that there's too many common cars in default VC game, it's simply lacking in cool rare vehicles like Deluxo or Bloodring banger.

 

I propose this mod not to fall behind that aspect as well, there could be a Jensen Interceptor based coupe but the twist would be it's actually based on the original car that Jensen Motors ripped it off from, in my opinion it looks much better and fits the time period better.

Don't see why not, looks like a cool vehicle to be included in the mod. Considering how Blue got his hands full with his music shop and the airport, I'll give it a shot, looks like it'd be fun. Plus it's a brazilian vehicle.

Now, that's quite a unique car idea! Breaking away from the usual Italian sports car is quite a refreshment. I'd really love to see how this would turn out in SoV :) How should the car be called?

I think the car should be called "Perceptor". It kind of looks like an Interceptor, and the name is fitting. :p

I'd rather keep the trend of naming it with a indian's/native's name for a bird, plant or folklore. So far thought of either Mandacaru or Curupira.

How about something more vague, like Vistera? I also really like the names above.

Mandacaru sounds quite fine to me.

How about a generic license plates system, like in LCS or VCS? I know it may take a bit of time to map the plates to each car, but the regular plates in VC look like total trash, and I created this nicer-looking set of tags based on my signature. I know the texture is a bit high-res, you can tell me to lower the resolution, if you want:

It's honestly amazing, mate! You could lower the texture's resolution a bit, but that's up to you. :D

Those license plates looks pretty nice indeed. And adding a generic/custom license plate generator on VC would be fantastic.

Thanks for all the remarks! :) If you want, you can improve on them, and I might upload the .pdn file.

I made MTL version based on the same Mack truck like -Anti-.

It's a coincidence that me and -Anti- were working on the same truck at the same time.

I was already working on my Mack when anti was working on his Mack.

 

I published my truck before -Anti-

Amazing, I hadn't seen that until now. That's a really funny coincidence - both of us posting this whitin four hours. Maybe we also started it on the same day ;)

The vanilla VC plates really are incredibly low res - even for VC standards. I think there is a Florida silhouette on them...

 

A quick mock-up with the SoV plates:

I just checked my first z3d file out of curiosity. I started on the 1st day of Christmas ;)

Damn, it's really nice to see my plates put into use! The trucks are really great, too! Which license plates are going to be used in the end? The GTA IV-style one on my signature, or the LCS / VCS-styled set with the black text?

Nihilist.

Too much detail for such small objects if you ask me. Also, colors seem too vibrant, compared to other textures - note how license plates stand out and look whitish, while everything around has this sunny, yellowish tone thanks to the in-game filter. Also, symbols on the palm tree are a bit difficult to see. Otherwise looks pretty decent - good job.

Lowering resolution, decreasing saturation and brightness (a bit), and finally, adding some barely visible metal texture should fix it all, in matter of seconds. Something could be done with the palm tree too, though - lowering its transparency should be enough. Either that, or additional color tweak.

New "Sunset" Vice City license plates. Coincidentally, they kind of resemble the Sunshine Autos logo.

 

Low-res version:

I still think the original VC plate texture that looks like a very lowres Florida plate should still be used, especially since A; how much do license plates change in a year and B; cities don't get their own license plate in America.

Using real Florida license plates is a great idea, but I wanted to make things more original. Also, the "LC R29" license plate on the cars in GTA III says "LIBERTY CITY" on top of it, so why not do the same for VC?

The SA plates also have the city names on them...

 

I agree with Nihilist.

On my pictures the plates clearly stand out because they are too bright.

Also I would get rid of the date because it's too small; and make the "Vice City" bigger. Basically keeping the style of the LC R29 plate.

 

In my opinion the best option (for basically all vehicle/building textures) is to overlay them with some metal/concrete and dirt textures to achieve that grungy VC look.

I still have the GIMP project files for the VCS plates I remade, just saying, if you wanted to keep within lore you could just change the colours to be closer to what was used in 1987.
