O, thanks, I just expressed my opinion. =)
It's very strange that no one else shared their impressions about the new models...
You do an incredible job!

Thank you, kind of you to say so. :)

I thought more people would be interested in this as well, but that doesn't seem to be the case. No matter though, I am doing this because I love this game and this was something I wanted to do for years now. (Wesp5 with his vague memory is my witness :D )

Good work, endthewars!

Just wanted to say about custom models' solidity. If you're using MDL compiler from the unofficial SDK, be aware that it still have (and probably will always do) serious limitations due to problems with MDL format reverse-ingeneering. The physic models (collision) may be compiled, but they can't be normally used in game. Models won't be solid and game even may crash on coming close to them. To avoid that, place such models in Hammer editor as prop_static and set entity's "Collisions" option to "Non-Solid". To make collisions around model, surround it with brush volume with "toolsclip" texture and turn it to func_detail. Of course, you should understand that model will just become a part of the world, and player can't move it, take, open doors or do other interactions. There's dirty hack here though: you may place model as prop_physics (without making brush volume), and player will be able to move it using native collision model -- but the model can't be taken by hand, it will be shooting through its volume, it will have physical mass issue, and it may lead to game crashes in some cases.

Thank you :)

Actually DDLullu solved the solidity issue. I tested the tool he made and it works brilliantly. As he puts it, studiomdl.exe has some wrong datas in the bone area.

I am having another issue right now though. Some models appears tiny and rotated in game after decompiling and recompiling them. (doesn't matter if I edit them or not)

EDIT: Turns out the issue was caused by the decompiler. It is a little broken.

I mostly lurk these days, but I wanted to pop in and say these look great, and what a neat idea! Keep up the good work! :D

All cars in Santa Monica now done and fixed.

Everything works perfectly now. (If there are any issues I haven't noticed them.)

Find it below.

That's great!
Do you'll plan to release it on the Moddob as first part of your mod? =)

I made a deal with him to include this in the plus patch once all cars are done :)!

Basically what Wesp5 said, this is going to be a part of his patch.

Maybe I will upload it to moddb for those who wish to get it separately, but probably not. :)

That's great!

As always thank you for the lovely pictures. :) I am really glad you liked them :)

I finally got the chance to check them out in-game and they look great! It may seem like a small thing but it does help make the world feel more authentic...now somebody just needs to give the cars higher-res textures, because some of them look pretty blurry, especially the wheels...

I tried your models yesterday, and I only can say, very good job!
With the modern computers and the 4gb patch, even with this old unfinished engine, we can get improvements.

Thank you.

There is actually a mod that edits car textures in the downloads section, but I doubt they are of high quality. I would like to create HD textures myself, but it is not something I can do. I hope someone tackles this on. :)

Thanks! I try to do what I can and I wanted to do this for a long time. It is the smallest details that make a huge difference in my opinion.

I wanted to do more, but this is the best I could do with the tools I have. :)
