Alright folks, I guess we finally have it... Been waiting on the Cadillac One since like... forever. Even for IV we only ever had the old DTS (which wasn't that great anyway, but...). Well, I have just recently acquired a newly released model of the presidential state car from Humster3D (thanks to @Elope ). Worry not, I have paid extra to get a game optimized mesh, so I don't have to bring a whopping 800k poly model into the game.
The model itself features the exterior with wheels, seperated doors and low detailed interior. The model is well made with clean geometry (my first Hum3D model).
So, here is my project plan:
-Implement an engine (probably gonna use some generic GM or Escalade parts, nothing too fancy)
-Detailed interior(dasboard) (again, probably gonna use Escalade as reference)
-Realistic wheel textures (done)
-Texturize the lights and emblems (done)
-Some minor undercarriage model/texturing (suspension parts, exhaust, things like that)
-Merge HQ model parts (emblems, wheel, grille) with gameready model (done)
-UV mapping (template and dirt mapping on 2nd UV chanel) (done)
However, I am still stuck in my exams phase, so don't expect this to be finished within the next 3 weeks. I just thought I'd to create this thread to let people know I'm on it before someone else perhaps goes and also pays for the model, which would be quite... unfortunate.
PLEASE NOTE: This is the 2017 ersion, which is not in proper service yet. This one has more modern lights and Cadillac design cues than the one still used by Obama.
