I noticed some car "skins" change the way the vehicle handles, what is the cause of this? when i used an ambulance skin the handling was way different..and what do .dff files contain?

my second question, is more of a request, im looking for a cop car caprice skin,

is perfect however the fake "passenger" in the back seat pisses me off, i play multiplayer and everytime i crash this fake passanger always talks, anyone got any good caprice skins or can edit that one and remove the passenger?

Is that what your after? (i use them myself)

And yes, if you edited the handling.cfg file when installing the car, it will affect the handling, (but its meant to if you know what I mean)

no the skins you have arent as good quality as the one i linked the one i linked was made by plumbars and it is their final version, the lady in the back really pisses me off, they also had previous versions http://spc.keiby.com...l...t&Itemid=60

the skins you gave seem to be vice city conversions, their tires are too big and their low quality

but the one int he first post was their FINAL version for san fierro, so if someone can remove that chacarcter from the back seat cause that lady in the back seat really pisses me off...

ant about the handling, no i never modded handling.cfg, this is .dff and .txd change only, and i noticed the vehicles control differently, when i tried some rancher (copcarru) .dff and .txd changes of a hummer the car rolled over on a dime, it controlled really differently

This is just the DFF edited alone I normally won't touch other people's work but since he didn't lock the DFF I will assume he doesn't mind. I just removed the extra (that is her part ID) and it should work for you but I didn't test it... I will let you be the guinea pig. :whistle:

So let me know when you download it, if this works. If it doesn't I will remove the attachment and make changes.

Well sorry...Im just trying to be helpful. The cars dont have big tyres in my game. Maybe I have a certain mod installed? (rhetorical Question)

Oops. I removed the attachment so others won't be downloading crappy files.



She is attached to the chassis of the car as Extra1 as you can see here. I will try again later...

Ok try this one.
(removed this one too.)

its the same problem as above (white windows untextured roof) , hmm i tried it myself, and i also get untextured top end, you would think its as easy as deleting extra1, what do you think is going on here, why is extra1 having such impact on the texture of the car, i also tried saving it with auto detect ligts on, in bmp format, and the whole car becomes untextured

If you look at my screen shot you will see we are missing some other textures at the bottom I keep getting these warnings no matter what I try. If you are using Zmodeler 2 then here are the steps I am using to import:
1. extra all the images from the TXD to TGA's in the same directory as the DFF
2. Run Zmodeler and import the DFF
3. Go to the pane on the far left and expand the list until you find Extra1
4. Right click on Extra1 -->edit -->delete

Then export back to the DFF. The model looks great in the Zmodeler but like I said there are those warning flags that seem to be the cause. I have to skate I have school.

O K there hitman I just got in the door from school and if you look in the readme file it tell you that you need a custom lights package from gta.com.ua and inside that rar file is the txd with the textures you need just extract as TGA into the same directory as you working model delete the Extra1 part and export.

normally this car is has steel hubcaps (no hubcaps), as seen in zdmodeler, in the game though it has hubcaps, its weird

not only are the windows messed up, but this car should have steel hubcaps

in the game though it has some weird hubcaps that ive never seen before

i thank you for trying, and for taking ur time to help me, but i think this is a lost case,
