Whats vehicle modding like in V?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just a quick question here: What's modeling like in V? Can you still upload models and pieces parts like you could with IV? Which light bars do you use from the development resource section of the downloads since ELS isn't out yet? And why is it with most models released they typically only have a light bar and very few, if any, additional lighting on the vehicle (grill lights, rear deck lights, etc) Is it difficult to add additional lighting?

I've never been a great vehicle modder but I did explore it in IV and the whole ELS part always confused me so I gave up.

 

I'd like to give it a try here in V and try to release some vehicles for the community.

Any help is appreciated guys.

What's modeling like in V?

- Annoying.

Can you still upload models and pieces parts like you could with IV?

- Yes(kinda)

Which light bars do you use from the development resource section of the downloads since ELS isn't out yet?

- Any converted lightbar from IV dev parts can work, you just have to configure it so it works with GTA V's lighting system.

Why is it with most models released they typically only have a light bar and very few, if any, additional lighting on the vehicle (grill lights, rear deck lights, etc) Is it difficult to add additional lighting?

- People are making cars based of the LAPD and LASD, both agencies which aren't exactly known for the lighting on their cars. And no it's not difficult.

^ F5544's tutorial thingy will help you understand the lighting system in V, also look at a vanilla car's lighting in zmodeler and it's easy to figure out from there.

 

This 2 part tutorial will tell you how to convert unlocked cars from IV to V.

You should ask authors of dev models for permission to convert as a courtesy, unless it says otherwise in the readme and credits of their models. 99% of the time you will not have permission to release the cars you convert from IV to V, so it's best to convert cars from scratch so you can do whatever you want with the model.

Okay, thank you for the information and for the heads up. I'm gonna try to hunt down a CVPI, Interceptor, Interceptor Utility, Charger and a Tahoe. 

Only reason I'm interested in this is to give back to the community.
