Yes, it indeed looks more like an Iveco rather than a Mercedes-Benz/Dodge/Freightliner. Change the front-end (you can get some influences from the XLS), shorten the car a little and use different rims. You can keep the rear end as it as in order to not make the van a carbon copy of the Sprinter.

^ By saying "Bravado van", I thought about the Dodge Sprinter, not the Ram Promaster (aka an outdated Fiat Ducato with Dodge grille).

 

The Promaster is ugly AF. Also, front-wheel-drive screams the exact opposite of "heavy duty", which is why there are still so many Chevy Express and GMC Savannas on the roads. The Dodge dealership across the street from my work had a Promaster when they first came out. It sat on their lot for a year before they traded it off to another dealership for a Ram pickup because, according to the saleman I talked to, "nobody wanted an ugly, fwd cargo van with a V6".

The Ford Transit was commercialized here in chassis version and Cargo van (in the previous generation that was not so ugly) to replace the old F series, but was not successful. It was not brave like the F-series, so Ford decided to bring back the outdated F-350 and F4000 with the Euro5 system that are way better than Transit. There are only Euro vans here (Daily, Master, Ducato, Sprinter, Transit), Volkswagen would bring the Transporter (the only Euro van I like) around here but it seems to have given up. People prefer the compact combo-style pickups around here.

Which is weird because they were pretty popular in Europe when I was there. Also in Europe, crossovers & SUVs were nary a thing. They were still making station wagons, which the SUV replaced here in America around the 1990s. Also everybody drives stick over there. Europe's car culture is f*cking weird compared to ours.

Here in Russia we have lots of Ducatos, Boxers and Jumpers, which are all essentially the same, but I never saw a Promaster. And yeah, being smarter than an Arduino so you can switch gears yourself is not weird.

 

EDIT. Also, WTF is this?

Yeah. It seems the vast majority of the world prefers their cars to be tiny little tin cans on wheels. Don't get me wrong, small cars can be fun and cheap on gas, but they just don't scream "safe-in-a-crash" to me.

Often, being bigger doesn't necessarily equals being a safer vehicle, though. It depends of the conditions of the crash; if you crash on an upcoming vehicle at 100 MPH / 160 KPH there's no chance of survival, regardless if you're driving the latest Volvo or a 1980's Dacia. Also, all those SUV's that people consider "safer" compared to smaller vehicles have way higher chances of rollover than a vehicle with lower center of gravity.

 

Anyway, this is derailing the topic too much.

After transforming the Stanier into a Unmarked vehicle, I was disappointed with the limit of lights that the FIB Bufalo supports (two points on the front and two on the rear window).

In Police Stinger it is possible to put up siren8. Anyone know if I can increase the amount of lights in the FIB?

I believe the light limit is hardcoded into the game. So unless you use ELS, you can't have more lights for the fbi slot. But unmarked NYPD cars aren't outfitted to light up like christmas trees anyways, so a setup similar to the GTA V Stanier isn't needed.

I do not want to use ELS because I want to leave as many Vanilla as possible. I found a solution that was very discreet I think. Just lights on the grill and the windshield.

I made a version of Thundersmacker Premier Classic police cruiser a while back, intended to replace the Noose cruiser. It has sirens 5-8 are in the Noose light bar, 1 and 4 are on the push bar and 2 and 3 are facing out the rear windshield like the FIB Buffalo. I made the lightbar extra_1, and surprisingly, it actually does sometimes spawn without it. I was just playing earlier and Noose Premiers joined in the chase. Some had light bars, some didn't.

in vehicles.ide, did you use the ext_all flag? That permanently keeps the light bar on, as long as you don't have other extras around. Those'll spawn too...

How about 1992 Bravado Rumpo? Rumpo from GTA V, but with front part from Steed. It would be nice to see a passenger version with an elongated body (Club Wagon parody).

Can you maybe use the default rambar from IV instead of the one from V? Something like this:

@Nico-Las RUS With the Vapid Steed I prefer to recreate the back of the van. Rumpo's body does not fit perfectly into Steed's cabin. But I still have other cars to be converted and edited before like the Asterope Taxi, Sandking, Executioner ...

 

@PJR_4015 I'm preparing two variations for Undercover / Unmarked Stanier (in IV and V styles), Rambars are extras:

1. Hubcaps, IV Rambars and chrome details;
2. Steel rims, V rambars and black grille.

 

EDIT: I put the two Rambars as an extra 1 and 2 in a single car.

Nope. The original line had the ext_requi and ext_strong flags. I just removed the ext_requi flag.

Declasse Rancher Stepside in GTA V.

Nice conversion, Dani! Just like Thundersmacker's Comet Retro. I'd like to ask you, could you please make both Brute Yosemite and Ingot Sedan conversions as Add-Ons too? :)

 

Ohh, by the way, just a small suggestion, what about GCT's awesome Schyster Greenwood as one of your next conversions to GTAV? If you want, of course! :lol:

The "Free Candy" van sounds like a good idea, but only if G.C.T. wanted to make a rusty/wreck variant of the Pony, but he already has few projects.

The Max Payne Van is still not my priority, I have some interesting vehicles to convert. Even more so that the van needs many modifications to look like the Sprinter. But I would like to modify it someday.

The Stanier pack is available now:

I'm working slowly on the Asterope from Thudersmaker to turn on LCC Taxi and removed the sunroof. Before putting on the taxi accessories I want to remove some chrome details and leave it in a more basic style like the Camry Taxi.

And this will be my next:

I'll take the high suspension out of Sandking and leave it more stock.
