This GTA San Andreas mod will turn your bmx bike into a new lowrider bike. It features colored by carcol file textures that can be changed to what ever color you want by just editing the carcol text file. This mod can also replace the bike instead of the bmx by just changing the names of the dff and txd to bike instead of bmx but the bike in San Andreas unlike the bmx is not carcol color controled and no matter what I did I could not get the original bike or my lowrider to change colors in game. I'm starting to think that the bike vehicle in GTA is hardcoded to one color because changing it's carcol entry does nothing, so that is why I had it replace the bmx instead so we could all have different colors. The seat and grips are secondary carcol colored and the frame is primary carcol color.

I did not attempt to replace the mountain bike but I did try to replace the regular bike and no matter what I did I could only get the brownish color that was on the original bike model on my model, however it works great as the bmx changes colors is fun to do the first mission with and jumps pretty good too plus it can wheelie for days :clapping:

Again, a good and original mod from Switch. Great work :D


And a quistion most people here would like asked, I think:
Could you make a really easy model of some vehicle (some extreemly easy van or something) and make a tutorial of it? The net lacks clear totorials for San Andreas. Or maybe you know a good tutorial your self.

Rotflmfao .....

Odd? What's so odd about it, it's a bike and a really sweet one at that. :bashhead:

Thanks for the compliment.
However I won't be writeing any tutorials for modeling but there are tons of great ones out on the internet. Here is some basic stuff: http://forum.zmodele...topic.php?t=828 this one explanes how things work and has basic instructions: http://www.zmodeler2...s/contents.html this one has advanced instruction: http://www.zmodeler2...dvcontents.html and this one explanes all about uv mapping: http://www.zmodeler2...ping/index.html as you can all see I use a registered version of zmodeler2 and only had to pay 35$ back when it first came out instead of the 53$ that it costs now plus I still use the old free version of zmodeler too and convert to new z3d format for export to SA dff format.
