    Cosmo got a reaction from thegreathah in 2015 Lenco Bearcat G3   
    Hello everyone,
    Some of you probably remember the first Lenco Bearcat Variation that I released. While it was the closest thing that the community had at the time, it wasn't nearly as accurate as I wanted it to be.
    But today I am proud to announce that a much more accurate model is in development. I have been working on it for quite some time now, but I did not want to announce it until it was farther along in the development process. There is no current release date, and it still needs a lot of work done on it, so please don't ask when it will be released.

    Please remember that it is currently in development. I am still working on the textures/materials and this is not the final product.
    Also, my previous model is being renamed from "Lenco Bearcat Variation" to "Lenco Variation" to avoid confusion. It is suggested that anyone who made skins or other versions rename theirs as well, but it is not required, just to help.

    Cosmo reacted to PileDriver in If we really want the FPIU to be realistic...   
    ...we need a model that will randomly blow it's transfer case/PTU.   
     
    I work at a Ford dealership. I have lost count how many of these we have done on the AWD Utilities (and some civvi Explorers), but we average one every two weeks (granted we're in a busy area and serve a large number of departments). Today's was one of the more impressive ones, when it failed (pictured) it cracked the transmission shell too (not pictured). Fortunately all of the ones we have done have been covered by warranty!  
     
    Really would like to be inside one when it fails. Almost every time the officer says they didn't even know it happened initially. They drive them to the dealership like this half the time! It's silly that they fail like this/so often, but dang if it ain't impressive that they can keep going!

    Thanks! And yes, I got quite distracted with a large coding project that I'm working on but I'm still developing the model and should have some updates out in the near future ;)

    Introduction:
    Hello everyone! Welcome to my first ever tutorial.
    My goal is to run through, step by step, the basics of converting a car model from another game into a GTA IV vehicle which will be fully functioning.
    I will be linking my videos below as I make them so at the moment, this tutorial is a work in progress but I am planning on completing the whole tutorial in about 5-8 parts (hopefully).
    Please feel free to leave any and all comments, questions, or critique. I look forward to helping everyone and learning from some good constructive criticism.
     
    Notes:
    The video tutorials will start at a point at which you should already have your vehicle model by either ripping it from a game, or simply downloading it off a website.
    You will need zModeler and a working copy of GTA IV.

    Yeah I am just so bad at default lighting that it was taking forever.

    Please remember that it is currently in development. I am still working on the textures/materials and this is not the final product.
    Also, my previous model is being renamed from "Lenco Bearcat Variation" to "Lenco Variation" to avoid confusion. It is suggested that anyone who made skins or other versions rename theirs as well, but it is not required, just to help.

    It's definitely a possibility but I'd have to see after the Bearcat because it would be a lot of work.
