Im still waiting for someone who can fix that upload issue in gta-garage btw
Whaaat, a new project from me. Heres one freaking great car I always wanted to model, the Buick Roadmaster Sedan. Its going to be as detailed as the Impala, maybe Ill make some tuningparts so you can tune it as a lowrider or sth like that It took me 4 days/~20 hours, only some small details of the exterior left. I might add some additional polies on some places.
Zmodeler2 got a export script for GTA IV 3d models so theres a really good chance to get it into IV as well. Im going to create some normals/specmaps for every texture so everything looks even better than in San Andreas. We got a next gen game engine, so why not using it. Pictures were taken with Xoliuls viewport shader 1.3

Whats the polycount of that car then? Be carefully about the polies, maybe it will cause lagg. GTA4 respawns several cars when you have a certain car. Anyway, I dont like sedans but this a special one.
@Illousion: One of the best cars ever built, gotta love the Roadmaster with the LT1 V8 from the Corvette!
@Rob.Zombie: Yeah, lets hope we get a perfect working script when this car is done
@jost_Vice: Those wheels are as lowpoly as they can without loosing the most important details But I added some polies to the bumpers and pillars and additional details, the model of the exterior should be complete now.
Yeah, it was on the Camaro Z28 and Impala SS as well. I know that Roadmaster is a pretty heavy car but its still surprising how good the acceleration for a 2ton car is. And yeah, the sound is just awesome
Heres an update, modeled the trunk, didnt take very long. Well, atleast I did something today.
