Storm_Sullivan 2.0

Postby Storm_Sullivan » Fri Mar 28, 2014 10:53 pm

I understand now why so little scratch-modeling is done anymore.
Therefore, I decided to try my hand at conversion. Introducing
Storm Sullivan Midtown Conversions Studio (SSMC)!!!!

Future projects (including, but not limited to):
-Dodge Ram 3500 Heavy Duty
-DAF XF
-2012 Ford SVT Raptor (I know jelly's doing 1 but this'll be a cop)
-Ford C-series Fire Truck
-Ford E-350 Ambulance
-Ford F-450
-Sterling A9500S
-Mercedes Benz Sprinter Ambulance
-Dodge Charger Police
-2009 Dodge Charger SRT-8 Police
-Dodge Challenger SRT8 Police Highway Patrol
-Aston Martin DBS Police
-Bentley Continental Supersports Coupe Police
-Carbon Motors E7 Concept Police
-Mount Chilliad SAR Hummer
-NYFD Megapack
-Dodge Ram 3500 unmarked
-FBI FXT
-Many, many, many, many, many more (and many more) :lol:

As you might see, I have a special attraction to converting emergency vehicles. Don't expect cars in this order. Most are custom made add-on vehicles from various NFS and GTA versions, which means it will take time to get permissions. But there's plenty of progress already, so keep your eye out!

I might actually abandon the S331 because I've looked everywhere for sounds and haven't found any close enough. And being taken from a Xbox game (of which I have neither the game nor the box), I may have to release something that I have a better chance of finding files for.

No, I don't have models of either of those, though I do have a few older crown vic's. And The list is nowhere near finished.

Crown Vic models I have:
-2001
-2003
-1989

I'll keep my eyes open for the two you mentioned, though.

Awesome!

Say, your list doesn't include a McLaren F1, right? I'm planing on doing that for my first convert. :)

Nope, all yours. :)

Other than a few (4-5) big trucks like the DAF XF, the list is mostly cops, 3-4 fire trucks, a couple military, and 3 ambulances, plus a bunch of real life pickup trucks with not-real life jobs (like a Ram 1500 police).

If I ever get around to more than one or two, we may have to make a whole new subcategory on this site for cops. ;)

Some police departments actually use the ram as a police truck. Just look some pictures up on Google. :)

Thanks for pointing that out :) I actually was entirely unaware. Too bad Ohio Highway Patrol doesn't use them, cause that's the department I hope to get into someday.

If the Readme's are correct, the Ram 1500's I have are 1996 and 1998.

By the way, anyone planning a Halo Warthog (not a Halo Edition Ford Raptor, an actual hog)? I don't know if I'll ever get around to converting it, but I have one.

Driving the warthog would be fun. Might look around. :wink:

I actually toyed around with my Warthog model, converted from GTA SA. I was following vw tuner's tutorial, and actually not doing too bad. Until I got to retexturing. First, ZModeler 1.07 kept crashing, so I textured in ZModeler 2. Then I accidentally applied the wheel texture to the whole model. After I got that fixed, I realized just one problem... The gun platform has a texture seperate from the body, as does the control panel. But the corresponding surfaces are part of the main body. I have other cars this way as well. What do I do?



Edit: In the meantime, I have plenty to do, between making an exhaustive list of my models and getting unlocked versions from the makers of any locked cars. Oh yeah, I should probably mention that almost all the cars are add-ons for their respective games, not default cars. Meaning they are all the more unique.

Sorry for the double post, but I thought you guys would like to see today's art:

The wheels, mirrors, and interior aren't textured yet cause I keep accidentally retexturing the wrong elements and I wanted to give you guys a shot before I...uh...mess it up again :lol:

Looks great! :) Did you apply a reflection map to a black un-textured surface of the body?

Actually no, at least I don't think I did, but there's a possibility. I did apply reflections, but oddly enough, the body textures without reflections are white. Haven't decided which I like better. I might do both.

Why are you retexturing if some come from GTA SA? They already have textures mapped and materialized :/
