I thought id share what im currently messing about with..
Im having a go at building a custom chopper to replace the harley fatboy. It's semi scratch built, i have a load of various models of cars and bikes ive collected over the years of doing 3d work. So i broke them all down to bare components and now im cherry picking the best ( or in some cases the ONLY ) usable parts from them, then modeling the rest by hand. Ive set the scale so the bike is almost the exact same size and position to the harley so once its done, it should be a lot easier to convert over to tdu.
Now the one thing i can't do, is make tdu vehicles ... So what i will be doing is once i have finished building, UV mapping and texturing the bike (essentially a finished model) i will be offering it up to one of you guys ( if you want it ) to convert it over to tdu2.
Anyway heres a quick look at some of the bike so far....
The wheels are just blank solid wheels at the moment, which means i can cut any shape i like into them
The tank, fenders and frame will all be uv mapped meaning they should all be able to be painted / stickered in game.
I have most of the parts already built, i just need to add uv maps and surfaces to the parts, make some textures. Then i can put all the parts together, ATM i have one file for the frame, one for the tank, one for the engine etc.. so i will have to get that taken care of..
Anyway.. thats what im messing with at the moment. Well that and my complete radio overhaul (which i am still working on )advertisement
Take it easy guys..
