Porting car mods from previous games?

Hey I was just wondering if it will be possible to port car mods from GTA IV/SA to V and if it is, how much does it take.

 

Also, how much time does it generally take to make a quality car mod especially now in the HD era?

I would say no, but I'm not too sure.

GTA IV file extensions were .WFT for car models and .WTD for textures.

GTA V extensions are .XFT for models and .XTD for textures.

There is no converter...

By 'make' you mean from scratch? With modeling software and a lot of knowledge, it takes a long time.

Porting takes a while, too.

Yeah I mean from scratch, how much time would it take exactly?

Pretty sure there are no ways to model stuff from schratch or port cars on consoles.

This was in the PC section of the GTA V Forum but a moderator decided to move it here for some reason.

It was like that for IV too.

PC had WFT/WTD and consoles had XFT/XTD. At least the xbox did. Dont know about the PS3.

 

If the vehicle hiarchy is built the same way in V as it was in IV, there shouldnt be a problem just taking the IV file and replacing it with something in V. Thats how it was for III -> VC.

 

SA however is a whole different story which requires alot of modding via 3d editors.

..WTF?

 

ON TOPIC: I don't think that you can simply replace them. GTA V uses a totally new reworked version of RAGE.

Also since you can customize cars in V, all cars need more specific dummys that the GTA IV cars don't have.
