Thank you guys! Glad you like it.

Been busy unwrapping (lots of work still to do... ) and could not resist to try a bit texturing...

This is what I've got:

Well, as you see, the quality is not the best (especially when close-up). And I dont know why, in BF they look pretty nice (even close) and they are even smaller in the resolutin. Texture is a 2048*2048px dxt1 dds file. Any ideas why it looks so bad? :(

cheers, scorp!

Adding a bump map later on will improve the looks of it , at least on 'high' settings in BF2. You should probably add more dirt and scratches to the texture where a real-life car has them, like around the wheelcases , the bumpers and the wheels themselves.

Note that BF2 supports a glossmap in the alpha channel of the main texture. You make use of it by using e.g. the 'ColormapGloss' shader technique in your main body material. The glossmap will make things shiny where it is bright white and dull where the glossmap is dark.

Looking good as always :)

I love it! :wub:

especially how it looks so detailed.. even w/o a detailed texture

Ed: just thought of a thing.. how many sets of wheels are going to turn? three?? the two in front and the one in the back.. the middle one stays static..?

Yeah, that'd look good too.. Its just that I've a LEGO Technic mobilecrane-truck at approx same type, and it turns with two front and one back, but I dont know what it does IRL, or in other games..

It depends on how sharp it should do turns... It actually could be quite a challenge to drive if it turns the way I suggest.. It might turn too sharp if its in "high-speed" or whatever it can go ;)

Afaik, the two front axles turn :-P

But, to be honest, I never saw one of them driving, neither one of them at all in real life :lol:

Some texturing progess. Not sure if I should keep the desert camo sheme because in real life the desert sheme is just a plain sand-like color.

What do you think?

Texturing is def. not one of my best qualities... :huh:

Help would be great! :)

it looks great, but i would make the grill more "fine" if you can say that.. Maybe use a real-life pic of a grill and paste that in? love the light...

Im not the great texturer my self.. I am good at editing, but i dont think i can make a new one from scratch.. I could try if youre interested?

The FarCry truck had a large turn radius :P

You shuld probably now start to really unwrap the truck onto a custom texture. By this you will be able to add the dirty edges and other nice details in texture . We have a few hints in the forum on how that works.

This tutorial describes the 'classic' way of unwrapping a 3D object by flettening its mapping. Waylons tutorial is still one of the very best on the net:

In this tutorial i describe another way which is used in BF2 for buildings mainly. It unwraps an object poly by poly ( or element by element ) onto an existing texture. the tutorial uses a vehicle as example :

Im trying to build a M113 up and , hopefully, get it into BF2 afterwards.

My question is, are there exporting tools for Max2009?

Here is a WIP picture, please leave som C&C.

Well, actually i did not anything big. I just downloaded latest PoE Maxtools, and then put all the files like it says in the 3dsmax directories... And then everything worked fine!

Btw, no updates atm, because...I cant texture.. :o

Cheers, scorp
