[Vehicle] [WIP] Phoenix Interceptor (Help needed)

  • Hi guys, I'm a big fan of Movie Cars and GTA Vanilla mods, but I have ZERO experience in 3D modelling (this is my first mod), so I decided to watch some tutorials and give it a try to make my own V8 Interceptor on the GTA World, since I feel that the Duke o' Death is more of a Death Race car than a Mad Max one.

    So after this whole weekend watching tutorials, editing and opening the game to test dozens of times, here's what I've managed to do:
    -Fixed the custom Roof and Grill
    -De-badged most of the emblems
    -Changed wheels for a bigger, more fitting one
    -Slightly raised suspension
    -Removed the Racing Stripe
    -Changed the hood to the cut one
    -Removed passenger Rear view mirror
    -Made driver rear view mirror colourable (Paint2)
    -Removed Front Bumper
    -Cut left and right fenders (needs improving on the filling)
    -Added Blower From Dukes2 (Paint2)
    -Added side Exhausts from Sabre GT (paint2)
    -Removed old Exhausts
    -Removed all Glasses (windshield, windows and rear)
    -Removed Windshield Wipers
    -Roof spoiler added as extra (from sultan RS)

    What I still need help with:
    -Fill the rear bumper gaps from old exhaust
    -Make it look like Sh#t (Rusty paintjob, chrome, inner and under parts, wheels, worn interior, basically make it look like Rat Tornado and Rebel Rusty)
    -I have no idea how to work with LODs, so it does not have any
    -Put clutter and fuel tanks in the back
    -Add a roof spoiler
    -Maybe make the headlights square
    -Maybe add a Rollcage
    -Make it an Add-on

  • @GreenAid Would add, if you want some part of the falcon just PM me i'll unlock the models

    Nice idea tho!

  • Thanks for the support, guys!

    Here's the progress of the last few days:
    -Reimported the lower part of the blower from the Vigero, as dukes2's blower has a lot of texture bugs
    -Resized the upper part of the blower so it looks more like the Interceptor's blower
    -Made collision to fit the blower
    -Remapped the cuts on the front fenders so the texture looks better
    -Readded Windscreen, as the Interceptor has it (oops)
    -Closed the Gaps in the rear bumper from the old exhaust system (and UV mapped it as well as i could)
    -Cut away the part in between the rear seats, rear window and the boot to open space for the stuff in the back
    -Removed boot (duh)
    -did some basic modelling and UV mapping on the interior rear to fill the hole.
    -Added Barrel and Spare wheel to the back.

    Current Bugs:
    -The Windscreen does not break.
    -The Spare Wheel gets Dirty like the normal wheels (it was expected, but looks weird)
    -The Barrel doesn't get Dirty (again, expected, but looks weird)

    PS: I extracted the Barrel and the wheel from the game files, so the car looks more "lore friendly", Instead of using the tanks from the real interceptor. Remember, I want it to fit the GTA world as much as possible.

    I'd appreciate some help about the windscreen and dirt problems xD

    I hope you like it!

  • @Matt_STS Usually i dont like edited vanilla vehicles, because they still looks ugly, but this looks like a real "lore friendly interceptor". Also, to be breakable glass should have at least LOD1, correct UV mapping on 2nd channel and "Crash" user defined option in material properties.

  • More progress!
    Thanks to help from @Yarm1995 , I've managed to do the following:

    Normal version Finished!
    -Glass is breakable
    -LODs work (but are heavy)
    -Jerry can added as extra 2

    Rusty Version Started!
    What still needs to be done:
    -Improve Rust mapping
    -Fix Dirt mapping
    -Make worn interior
    -Make exhaust and chrome parts rusty
    -Lods and glass

    -Make both versions add-on

    -Fixed Dirt Mapping

    -Worn Interior
    -Breakable Glass
    -made add-on pack with clean version

    • Awaiting Approval

    I'd like to thank @Yarm1995 for the help, I'd be stuck without your help!
    Also thank all of you for the support!

  • @Matt_STS i think its great work!

  • @Yarm1995 and everyone, how do you like it?

    -New front bumper, it goes lower on the ground and goes around to the fenders
    I crashed it a few times but I couldn't make it fall off, so I'm not sure it's working completely well
    it still lacks UV mapping on the inside and dirt mapping

  • @Matt_STS Yea, thats what i meant by addind front bumper. To make it fall off properly make sure that bumper collision have correct ID and properties (easiest way - take bumper collision from default vehicle)
