1978 Ford Fiesta XR2 (European market)

Hi everyone, most of you know me, and those who dont, will most likely know my past works from gta 4..
I been taking a break for a while as i thought i was done with modding. but turns out, i just got bored of porting other peoples work between games.. So decided, now V is with us, we have a good enough revision of the RAGE engine to play with. the dynamic ability of the new game engine has got me hooked once again. but im sorry to say, even Forza models are not quenching my thirst.

This got me looking back at older works and realizing, for all the custom edits i have made to my previous converts, i could of made lots of cars from scratch. Cars not found in computer games or 3d assets websites.

So yesterday ((after serious drama with my actual PC)) i switched on a crappy Pentium 4 dual core, and install my modelling suite AC3D by Inivis,

the goal is simple. i want a car I LIKE, in MY game.. IT must BE EQUAL TO FORZA QUALITY since i will be using forza textures as donor for lighting, this way i can guarantee what i build, gives the result i aim for...

((im GEEKY - deal with it))

heres some screens of the car i intend to build (yes i know its in Forza Apex and Forza 6) but i dont have access to the actual files, so im building it myself..

the model, as you can see, is in 3 forms, stock, XR2 (factory tuner edition), and then a wide body (my favourite)

as i said at the beginning of this long-ass post... my aim is to build to forza lod0 level.. hopefully, this is happening :p


here is my sill, and door seal work >>

i hope you like what i done so far, and hopefully in the next few days, il have another update.. this is my first actual post on the forum, lets try keep it to just this one for now otherwise, i get sidetracked and nothing gets finished coz iiiiiiiiiiiiim wicked and immm laaaaaaazzzzzyyyyyy :D

V models has 40-50k poly in LOD0, it would be good to keep this polycount. Nice work, I'd love to learn how to model vehicles.

agreed, low poly is better, i think it can be done too.. since seeing CSR 2 Racing, has full sill detail etc, and is a mobile app, i figure i can achieve the same result. Mesh values for what you currently see here, is as follows :

Total objects: 3 surfaces: 1614 vertices: 1153

the numbers look promising :monocle:

assembly is so far, so good. and also as i sidenote. i decided to model by-material, keeping with the Turn10 Studios themed idea ;)

This sounds and looks promising so far, there's a first generation Fiesta I often see around that never fails to catch my eye so I will definitely stay tuned for this one. Are you going for the British or Euro specs?

DerangedCrackhead, (loving the name btw - true dark side of life right there haha) im going full uk spec tbh, but since we got so many modders, i labelled as euro, so people dont complain about missing the huge human friendly bumpers US models were given.. ;)

 

ALSO,, any ideas, close up images of details, interior etc, even tuning package suggestions are all welcome

i was unaware Fiestas, had any other fate than this ^^^ my very own Fiesta ended up stolen, and found upside down on the bus bay of the school i used to go to....

Its been a week or two since i have been at my machine since trying to get my print company off the ground, so apologies, but my update is only small... [is that just called a date? nothing really up about it tbh] ...

i spent the past couple days refining the overall mesh, and cleaning edges before my first attempts at the 3rd dimensions of each object.. I'll be honest, i do prefer to model this way, instead of box modeling so il continue this way, as slow as it may seem, i assure you all, this is just me processing the mesh layout in my head before actually working... dreaming polys quite often lol

FINALLY!! I GET TO MODEL LIGHTS!!! YAY!! :santa::santa::santa::santa::santa:

This part i wasnt particularly looking forward to.. mainly coz im crap.. but also because i was kinda lost on how to achieve what i want.. but F**k it... i tried anyways.. this was just going to be a mock build of the light unit itself. copying the way Turn10 Studios use 2x meshes for lightglass and lense.. but im quite happy with how it looks so no doubt it will be staying now..

the texture is taken from FH2 VW Rabbit, since its from the same era - CREDITS TO Turn10 Studios here.

Also, i just found my Series 1 RS Turbo Escort model too, but only the z3d file made from a temp model.. naturally i will be continuing this too :D

Front lighting is now complete with lenses. no colour meshes, this is strictly texture colour only. all meshes remain white, with a basic dark map added to grille and bumper rail

QUICK EDIT - august 10th

30bmcn5.png

I will upload wireframe screens, when i figure out, and complete the assembly for taillights. my next step for the front is to give the headlights, indicators, and grille a black back-mesh - like a way to seal the units within a container as i will be using a tuner option in GTA V to switch lighting to the XR2 style round pods :)

Well in the modern age the Cossy is too narrow so a wide body would help modernise it I reckon, nice one!!
