@Nik Nothing beats practicality.....2 door cars ain't fun sometimes, specially on tight supermarket parking lots :D

 

As Im a swede, Im grown up in Volvo Estates. :p

 

I had a S60 from 2001...it surely the least practical Volvo I ever had, even my today car is bigger.

I already feel like a hungry dog awaiting in the kitchen door to be fed. Is it there anything new to ease this hunger for updates?

Just eat at Applebees/TGI Fridays/Ruby Tuesdays/Chillis all the time. Applebees/TGI Fridays/Ruby Tuesdays/Chillis are all the same.

@universe I missed a good steak ....There used to be an Applebee about 41 min drive from my home, but it had been shut down. I have to drive all the way to Bellingham, WA :D Oh well, I dont think im going to have a hard time finding a good steakhouse. There's a steakhouse 5 min drive from here :D

 

@GCT hmm interesting suggestion, maybe later...I got couple of WIP on it way..

 

Finding a good LTD undercarriage reference is almost non-existent, so I resort to using 1979-1993 Mustangs as reference (Used the same platform as LTD, in addition photos are all over the net)

And say what you want about Applebees/TGI Fridays/Ruby Tuesdays/Chillis and how they're all the same, they all know how to cook a goodass steak.

@universe, hmm maybe if i get a chance crossing the border, I better check applebee out....my inner meatarian urge is building up again.

 

barely making any progress....been busy lately. I decided to create the 5.0 engine (aka Windsor 302) from scratch (instead of re-using my LTD Crown Vic engine)

STOP MAKING PROGRESS PLEASE. THIS IS TOO MUCH FOR MY HEART TO HANDLE.

 

 

But really though, I'm pretty surprised at the accuracy you're getting considering the lack of blueprints and other reference stuff out there last time I checked. Good work.

@universe LTD is not really an iconic car....I am not surprised finding a good reference pics rather very diffucult, so I cheated I used the mustang undercarriage and engine references (much easier to find)...they are "almost" identical because they shared the same platform and so are some of the mechanical parts (FORD LTD LX V-8 also called the 4-door Mustang)

I can't wait for the LTD! It reminded me of this 1981 Ford Granada mod;

http://gta.com.ua/file_sa_details.phtml?id=6029 (SA)
http://gta.com.ua/file_details.phtml?id=2810 (VC)

What a shame that one isn't available for IV. The Granada would accompany the LTD perfectly!

That's a smart idea you smart little gnampf. Two more little questions though:

 

A) Will you make a police variant of it or will you leave it as-is?

B) How many polys does it have compared to an IV car or V car?

@universe, I let other people convert it to a police car (I don't know how to set the ELS lighting) The polycount for IV and V cars are nearly identical (both games are design for PS3/X360) aprox 15,000 tri's

 

@realnewyork both cars are somewhat related, they are based on the same platform.

 

@Roadrunner Not to many scratch modeler are porting their cars to IV,

So the polycount for that car is the same as one of those? I can imagine you mentioned it elsewhere and I'm too big of a dolt to notice.

Hopefully the guys of the GCU team will do it as they've done with other of their mods in the past. It'd definitelly be a shame letting the chance of having this car in IV go.

@universe I'm sorry i misread your question...too much clouds in my head... anyway the polycount for my LTD so far around 110K compared to a typical GTAIV or GTAV, the polycount is about 15K

 

@roadrunner it can be done but LOD1 have to re create in order for some of the gta4 visual features to work, not every converters are experienced modelers. Converting to GTA4 is a lot easier once you have the required models you need (setting up materials is dreadfully repetitive though)

 

The cluster took me a while to get it right it turns out its not lining up with the center of the seat! I have to revised the dashboard. I am lucky enough to find a good photograph from ebay.

Hi Carface80, will you create as a possible future project a 1992-1997 Ford CVPI? That would be awesome.

 

Cheers.

f*ck it, it's 2014. We have supercomputers that can fit in our pockets.

 

If you're needing ideas for future stuff, might I suggest surprise surprise a 1986 Buick Century sedan? If you do it, I'll track down wherever you live, give you a sloppy, wet kiss on the cheek, and abruptly leave before it gets too awkward and I have to take you out to dinner.

Supercomputer or not, the limit is set by R* and their engine, if I am not mistaken. In fact, I am teying to make Iv work with most slots replaced with mods and I am having problems with textures. Well, perhap in this particular case it has more to do with my pc specs but it's frustrating either way and it may happen in other cases because of IV engine.

 

@UT. Will you track downand give me a kiss too? pls

@universe interesting suggestion, I am not good with promises, but ill see if I can squeeze it in the future along with a 1973 Delta 88.

 

@roadrunner The reason ive been keeping my texture under 1 MB and max size up to 512 on my recent mods, I felt having a car mod with 4-7MB of textures is not healthy.

And the best thing is that they look good ingame the way you do them. There is no point of having 2048x1152 interior and gauge textures which will slow down practically every computer on earth when most of the time ingame you're going to see the car from outside...

 

@UT, I don't mean to hijack thread but I got something I took today you might like, amigo. Just try to keep the excavator of your sig away, would you?
