I was thinking of doing something along the side of the car instead.

Exactly what I was thinking, too

 

Looking forward to seeing what you will come up with ūüėĀ

Couple more WIP images as I was testing stuff etc. Also worked out the rear end :)

 

Coming up to the end of this one at last, might drop some test renders as I play with the lighting but yeah almost done, just need to find some good plates to render it on as I don't have time at the moment to model an environment, might do that for the next car though, good challenge!

Thanks everyone for the kind words :)

 

Here's me spitballing a couple of ideas for the GT-A1.

Cool, as always.

btw, i'm already starting to dev the new mod for SA, like a convert full map of Anywhere City (this map include multiplayer maps and bonus levels each in one big map, all districts connect with bridges). So this will not just convert of the GTA2 map (like some guys try to do that with bad collision and without VCol), it's will "big deal" or something like that.

So this map will be include full day/night VCol (Prelight, Vertex Color), all of the cars in 3D (maybe i will do "unknown" cars by Ray Larabie, but i guess we need ask his about the cars names). And yeah, all of that will be on multiplayer only (Multi Theft Auto, custom client), i have some idea for expansion of the map, if somebody interesting what is it - ask me.

Also why i write to you Alex, i just wanna ask about your 3D cars design, in my 3D models i would like to use some elements of your cars, just like a shape, lights elements, etc. I hope you let me to do that, because you make really awesome work, this what R* would like to do in GTA2, just like a "true retrofuturistic" cars, and that's what i want in my project.

Carrying on with the GT-A1, the first concept is pretty much done, going to maybe explore a couple of others but I'm quite into the weird look of this one.

Hm, front and rear part look's like a Ford GT40, very similar. And yeah, It's good that you did not forget the rear wing air intake. Now i will wait for some blockout of this car.

Some more refinement, wasn't too sure originally but I think I'm liking where its going finally. This is a bit of a tough one because its not going to necessarily fit with the 30s/40s retro thing that a lot of the cars have but then again GTA2 is a mishmash of cars from all sorts of different eras so it shouldn't be too futuristic.

Awesome work, but... these cars are so ugly. When I was a kid, I didn't realize Grand Theft Auto 2 is packed with such... weird cars, so to say.

Just for info - original gta2 cars were all modelled in 3d and rendered to 2d sprites, dma design (rockstar) at the time released some media art of actual pictures of 3d models that thex used, some pictures are here: 

 

http://en.wikigta.org/wiki/Artwork_(GTA2)

Firstly I have never seen this as "confirmed" anywhere, just because a few of the promotional images were released does not automatically mean that ALL the cars were modeled in 3D.

 

Logic dictates that the cars were not all modeled in 3D, in fact I bet none of them were, at least not the ones used in the final game. Take a look at the sprites in the final game, why do some of them  most of them have mirrored lighting? Also the cars in the promotional images do not match the sprites in the game.

 

Take a look a the cop car model

 

3D_Cop_Car.JPG

 

Now look at this image 

 

Ztype.JPG

 

The same hood bulges, roof lines, and a little more detailed grille? I can pretty much bet that cop car model was just reused here as this zaibatsu badged car for a promo/magazine image.

 

Also in 98-99 what possible reason would there be to model the cars in 3d if the sprite work was already being done by Ray Larabie? Some of the cars that he did look very similar albeit a lot less detailed in the final game. The only thing I can think of is that maybe they wanted the cars to be rendered in 3d, just like the rest of the city but something changed and they went with sprites.

 

Now I'm not saying that there aren't more models that we just haven't seen, I just doubt that all the cars were modeled. Either the models that we have seen were made exclusively for the promotional images, or the devs decided it would perhaps require too much horsepower to have all the cars be rendered in 3d so at some point maybe the cars had to be switched to sprites.

 

Just a thought.

Question, are you going, to do all the vehicles? and Will the Vehicles be up to download To be used for something for projects or mods?

Q : are you going, to do all the vehicles?

A : I would like to, but it would take years at the pace I am able to do them at at the moment. Right now I'm just focusing on my favorites :) 

 

Q : Will the Vehicles be up to download To be used for something for projects or mods?

A : I personally had no intention of making these to be 'game res' vehicles from the very beginning so the answer is probably not. I have tried to get into modding GTA but as someone who doesn't use 3DS max and has no interested in zmodeler I lost interest pretty quick. That said if someone wants to use my designs as inspiration or create game res vehicles to be modded into the games they are free to do so.
