I found it on mm2c well I would say the easy way to get cars would be Using Ninja ripper and A Xbox emulator so it would be cool to see the mm3 cars back in action

Is there an Xbox emulator capable of running Midtown Madness 3? Either way there's no guarantee that Ninja Ripper can rip the models perfectly. I tried it with some games and the models are skewed and perspectived and required a lot of work to fix them, unless I did something wrong. Replacing the default MM2 cars with higher resolution versions would be sweet, especially if they come from MM3 (or Midnight Club games).

There's already a Midnight Club 2 mod for MM2.

A member called SuperSecret some years ago was working on an attempt of a conversion for PC of MM3, rebuilding it with the original stuff using Unity engine. So, a lot of the 3D part of it has been already ripped. Get the most recent builds from this post (builds 6.7 only for the data and 7.7 as the most recent).
I don't know what else should be done to get the used 3D models in a file format which makes them usable for other projects, like the OBJ one.

This idea has been discussed in past, but the sources are still little, incomplete for all the vehicles, and too much different. Then, MM2 has also fantasy vehicles, and for them you're kinda forced to pick alternative similar ones.

I can get the cars out of the game. I have a converter for the format. I just haven't released any yet :P

I suppose lack of interest + lack of time. I'll do it someday soon and post it to the Discord group.

Finally there is a MM3 car in MM2! Will someone make a MM3 mod for MM2? And can MM3 cities be converted to MM2?

Yeah, the first ever MM3 car conversion is now released, but other cars models got ripped and fixed so far. They got ripped from this now abandoned MM3 PC porting project.
Will someone make a MM3 mod for MM2?
A similar project is already in work, currently on hiatus, that's about remake the MM2 cars (the default 20 plus the 1959 Cadllac Eldorado) using various high polygons models taken from various games, and 7 of them are taken right from MM3.
And can MM3 cities be converted to MM2?
Just a part of them, probably, and this process always takes long working time, especially because the first thing to do is rip the 3D model with a tool and fix it, and that's what has been done with the cars models so far. Also, forget about traffic and pedestrians, only the simple model in PKG format.

Until now there is no way to modify MM2 pedestrians.
