THE LAST OF THE 2008-ERA LORE-FRIENDLY MET VEHICLES!
'Fun' fact - this took two tries. The first one was binned off because I considered it a failure and too hard to fix, and I started again on another one. This is the result.
This is Ekalb's Bravado Buffalo (Non-ELS), modified to give the appearance of a Metropolitan Police car with the traditional 'Jam Sandwich' livery. Using many reference images, I have made the texture as accurate as can be with the limitations GTA IV texturing has.
However, I already know there are problems and issues with the texture.
A big problem you may see is that the lightbar is NOT just white and blue. I have no idea how to fix that without getting too technical, sorry, and the textures may be a bit wonky and off-scale and inaccurate to the real vehicles, because I'm not the best texture editor in the world - I have tried to recreate it to the very best, but as always, the template and GIMP 2.0 have limitations.
The roof markings have been obscured by the lightbar, unfortunately. This is a problem I tried to rectify, but if I had tried to fix it anymore, the markings would be unrealistically small, so I'm afraid there's no fix there, sorry.
But I'm trusting you'll ignore, or even fix the little nitpicks that exist within my download. The original model is located here
, (much credit goes to Ekalb for creating a stunning model, sadly without a front plate) and as a final send-off, don't redistribute it without my permission!
As a final footnote, a megapack will be promptly released by the start of 2017. Stay tuned!
