This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Here is it, finally. This model was NOT built by me, it was a free model from www.3dcafe.com, I just adapted it for the TS2 and added new wheels of my own creation. I wish I knew the name of the modeler so I could give credit where credit is due.
As I was working on this, the only color I wanted was basic black, but my wife (if you remember the pink SuperSportsCar) wanted a pearl chrome PINK. So I made both of those and then, since I am an air race fan, I decided to mimic on of my favorite planes. A highly modified P-51 Mustang called "Voodoo 3", (pictured below).
Both the "PINK" and the "VOODOO" recolor packages are included in the one zip file. This in NOT hacked in any way, purly decorative.

ATTENTION: To any one that has downloaded and used the 1974 Trans Am I posted:
1) I did not build that model either, it was another freebie, I think it was origanally built for NFS5, original builder unknown, sorry....

2) I just went back over that package and learned the the GUID is the same as the Venus Sculpture, so If you are using the car then the Venus Sculpture will be lost, I have already fixed the file, just haven't posted it. I recomend that you delete it, so your original MAXIS sculpture will return. I am sorry for my stupidity.

I hope I placed this in the correct area, if not would someone pls let me know. And as always, any and all comments are welcome.

thanks
AceHole

Any chance you could make an old rusty version? Something like the old junker in the Sims 1 comes to mind.

This car is simply lovely! But 42704 polygons are definitely too many for a single object: my poor PC won't bear the load
I guess that most of the meshes from 3D café were made for static 3D, not real-time game like TS2...

Good work, though! The recolours you made are absolutely excellent, those cars look real!

Yes!! you are absolutly right!! and I am very sorry for not posting the poly count, it is 42,000+ but, that is divided by the 18 tiles that the car covers, so there are only 2300+ polys per tile just try not to have 15 Chevys in your yard..


thank you for your testing ( I really apriciate the info), It's folks like you that help us meshers make better models

thanks
AceHole


EDIT: yes the idea for the model came from 3Dcafe, but I completely rebuilt the model useing that (excellent model) as a template. I just need to learn more about reducing the poly count.... I am SOOOO sory for any problems that it caused you

No problems at all! Actually, as I said, my PC isn't that hi-tech monster that I'd like to have And yes, I like this car so much that I would have 15 on my lot! :D

Anyway, this post by Atavera may be useful to reduce polygons in complex meshes.

Christine isn't an Impala -59. She is a Plymouth -58. So thats it.
