  • @Yarm1995 Looks awesome! It's nice to see where it has come from to now. Also, I've been very depressed so this helped brighten my day. Thanks for all you've done, I don't even know that I'd have gotten this far with this if I was to convert this myself

  • @Yarm1995 Anymore progress on the Catalina?

  • @John-Lemon Not so much. I wasn't in town on holidays

  • @Yarm1995 Ah, what were you on holiday for?

  • @John-Lemon In Russia New Year&Christmas holidays continue until 9th january:) About progress, i'm assembly LODs, and planning to make another ingame test soon.

  • @Yarm1995 Russia Celebrates New Year till the 9th? In America we only celebrate New Year from 11:30 Pm New Years Eve to New Years 12:30 Am

  • @John-Lemon Yes, because in Russia Christmas celebrating on 7th january.

  • @Yarm1995 Hey did you fix the roof problem of the vectors not being smooth? Working on newer models and utilizing the smoothing tool I figured out how to fix it. I can rework the old models I have and send you a better one if you haven't already fix them

  • @John-Lemon Yes, it would be nice to have smoothed models, because i can't make mesh completely smooth on some parts.

  • @Yarm1995 Ok I'll get on to fix the bigger pieces of the model and sent them over to you.

    I have to admit something. I was still pretty noobish to 3D Max when I made that model. Still kinda am, but I know my ways around better now then I did then. I've been working on a much better model since. I know you've put a lot of time and effort into this so I wouldn't say drop it all together. Also, this model is only partly done. I've only got the body covered so far

    I think I'm going to be awhile (The new Catalina) till I have something I deem FAR better. I want to take my time on this one rather than get it out in a month. I've also since learned that quality always triumphs quantity in modeling, something I didn't get then.

    Also, I'll see about getting the 66' parts done if you're still interested

  • @John-Lemon On that renders model looks much smoother! I think, that i can merge new body with existing mesh.

  • @Yarm1995 I think I'm going to be a while working on the new model, If you want to hold out for it, then be my guest. But I won't be done for some time. I really want to take my time with this one

    If you, it's up to you if you want to hold out for this model and drop the old one or if you want me to finish the old body and you do that car and then I send you this one I feel I've got something great

    It's up to you, I don't want to be a dick and say "Oh, by the way, you know that old crappy model I did a while ago and you put a lot of effort into? drop it! we got something better". Till further notice, I'll be reworking the old model till you decide

  • @John-Lemon I think its better to take more time and make better and finished model. Thats the way, how i make my other converts, i can spent months, but release completly finished models. I make another ingame test of Catalina soon, and see how it looks ingame. Then, if i finish current model before you make the new one, we can release it as 1.0, and then make 2.0 with new model.

  • @Yarm1995 I'm good with that solution

  • @Yarm1995 8 Lugs, Tires and Tail Panel mostly done (Or a good percent though). Heres some renders I got from the new project. I know about the loose ends and the head lights looking kind of weird, but 3DS Max was putting up a fight and so I forgot about them (The 8 lugs were repeatedly tripping up 3Ds Max, so there is only one on)

  • @John-Lemon Looks really smooth!

  • @Yarm1995 I got the body and emblems largely done for now anyway. I might come back to it if I feel like I missed something; like the reverse lights, I still need to add and small stuff as such. I've moved on to redoing a lot of the crap work I did on the old model. I decide that I'm redoing all the underpins of the old model because it gives me a basic idea of what to do. Most of what I did back in June is passable on a visual level, but me being more neurotic and knowing how to do better, I've decided to rework all what I feel is bad work, which it seems to be 80% of the work I did. It also gives me a chance to enhance things that are seemingly lower quality and drop the poly count of things like seats because I had no idea what the Smoothing tool was.

    I just wanted to tell you where I'm at and I'll have some pictures up soon

  • @Yarm1995 Pictures! I got the Moon Hawk's Underpins you sent me a while ago button up under the car

    I'm going to end up redoing the Dash because I don't like the quality of how it was made. I've got a small list of things to do, clean up, make LODs 1-4 and it'll be ready to be sent over to you

  • @John-Lemon Looks good! Much smoother and detailed. I'm just worried about import in Zmodeler, only working way for me, its convert to .obj, but its kinda old and bad format, often it screws normals and smoothing groups.

  • The Beast's construction is going on! Glad to see it. Keep it up boys!

  • I keep falow this dude hope to see this one day :cop: good luck !

  • @Yarm1995 @Bo-Decker @toitoine66 I know been kind of quiet lately, but here's picture's that speak for themselves!

    I counted and I think there are 40 mods on this car. The car in the picture is just a file copy, the real car is all stock and I'm using this body as a point of reference. The real car itself is almost done, I just have to get the back side of the Quarter panels done as they aren't double sided and aren't very well packaged with the trunk yet.

    After I finish tidying up the rear chassis I'm going to move on to other LODs (LOD 1-4) and after that, hopefully it'll be ready to be sent to Yarm. Speaking of which

    Yarm, didn't you say a while back we could make use of the Benny's Mod? If so, if you send it to me, I can add it to the Catalina. I'm short on Lowrider ideas and I mostly did Super Stock, Gasser and a bit of early Pro Stock drag racing parts
