Is VCMM basically like SAMI but its for GTA:VC instead??

And also can you install cars that dont say VCMM at the end of them?

hotrodmerc84 -
If you're still watching this thread, are the Crown Vic you're trying to install service or civilian models? I know the police
car has coplights that are turned on & off, this could be the problem w/ replacing copcar. You may have a similar issue w/
taxis so make sure your replacing them w/ cars made to work as such. The Haitian Voodoo has the same problem because
of hydraulics.

look for - Ford LTD Crown Victoria Interceptor LAPD '85 by Pumbars, looks & works great. Also makes some really sweet
taxis.

Hope it helps.

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's meant to be.

If not, point & laugh when it flies into a woodchipper.

yea im new to this modding game hell i barely got the game yesterday but anyways ive followed ALL the steps - 1 replaced both files with the IMG 1.3 - 2 Changed handling/colors/defualt


the game freezes up i guess when the game is going to load the car. i tried to mod the stallion with a 351 boss mustang but it just froze up so i re installed the default files and now the game comes up with the mod even though i set it back to the default handling/colors/default with shitty ass physics and now i tried to install the trueno instead of the blista compact and the same crap keeps happening but i left the mod on this time


NEED HELP =l

The best way of installing a new car is by using VCMM. I use it myself and every car I've tried to install, it's worked. Replacing .dff files I would say is the harder way, I've attempted it but haven't succeeded. I'm pretty sure once you know how to replace the .dff files it would be easy but I haven't got the foggiest so I tend to stick with VCMM.

Whats that got to do with anything? Yes VCMM is easier but most car mods don't come in VCMM format, so you have to do it manually whether you like it or not.

So i can to turn a already existing car into another existing car? EG Tank into Sabre turbo with tank properties.. ? replacing both .dff and .txd?

Yes. There are a couple of ways you can do this.

If you copy the Rhino's DFF and TXDs and Handling line and Collision files (the tank) and put them in as the Sabre Turbo - making sure you replace the Sabre Turbo and not just add it on top, then the Sabre Turbo would appear as the tank. Although it would still say "Sabre Turbo" unless you changed the language file, and it would still sound like a Sabre Turbo when you drive it unless you changed the audio files.

If you just copied the DFF and TXDs it would take the shape of the tank, but there would be a few things wrong. For example, it might be too high or too low off the ground, it might have the wrong wheels, it would still drive like the sabre turbo, and if you crashed into something it still thinks theres a Sabre Turbo there, so your footprint (shadow on the ground, and the physical area that you can crash into) is the shape of a sabre.
