Shift 2 Unleashed Traffic Mod

Postby BUGATTIMAN253MPH » Sat Nov 01, 2014 12:05 am

I have this idea for a traffic mod; I'll convert some of the cars from Shift 2 as traffic cars in MM2. Of course it'll be very hard on the game so I'll use LODB, opaque windows, no interior and reduce the textures down.

Alfa Romeo Giulietta - Compact Car

Great idea. ;) Looking forward to this. I hope you're aware of the polycount limitation when it comes to traffic mod.

13292 Vertices & 12736 Faces, hope it isn't too much for MM2

Next car; Pagani Huayra, replacing the Ultrasport.

Is this mod meant to simulate a real world traffic kind of thing? When replacing the sports cars, a Porsche 911 or BMW M3 would be more feasible than a city lousy with Paganis.

Very nice start, the models look good, but the polygons count is really too high, you'll always get game crashes when you'll replace the other cars. A maximum of about 2000 polygons per model is the best to get a complete traffic mod with chances to be able to do a gameplay with even the maximum traffic density in both the default cities.
Yeah, if you want to have a realistic aspect with the traffic cars, the Pagani Huayra isn't a right choice...

Here's a list of what cars I'm planning to change so far:

Compact car - Alfa Romeo Giulietta
2 seater - Audi R8/Maserati Gran Turismo S
2 seater sport - Mercedes SL 65 AMG/Alfa Romeo 8c
Euro - VW Scirocco/Renault Megane RS/Audi S3
Ultrasport - Lexus LFA/Porsche Carrera GT/Mercedes SLS AMG
Sedan - Any Saloon I guess

Please suggest any changes and I'll go with the most popular suggestions from people.

I probably won't get around to finishing it anyway since the models can't get any less detailed than 2k polys.

For the most realistic, go with that out of the choices you have given.

Heap Overrun is a memory thing. So I believe if you keep the files small it shouldn't happen with this mod. Don't quote me on that though.
