Realistic R/C

Unread post by Iron Bob » Mon Jul 22, 2019 9:23 am

This is a project I've started on discord to recreate all the original Re-volt PC cars into more Realistic R/C models. This means they will be more realistic in size, shape, detail and running gear. I currently have three cars in game (still need paint completed) with two more in WIP stages. I currently have a couple people helping me and we have a channel in the Re-Volt Workshop. Channel access is currently by invite only, if you would like to help on this project you can PM me on discord or leave a message here on the board. Just let me know what you think you can add to the project. Realize that if you join this project it will be to help in some way, not to just see what is happening with it. You can read my overview document here. The idea is to remodel the looks of the cars not they're handling. The following are some pictures of the current progress of the cars.

If you join this project you will get access to all the content created so far. The project will be released as a pack when all the cars are finished.

Thanks

This is looking pretty nice, IronBob + Team!
What are your plans: Will all cars be available in addition to the current stock cars, or do you plan to release an update, where the current stock cars will be replaced with the new models? If yes, how do you plan to achieve this? (For example regarding online multiplayer compatibility)

Compatability isn't really a problem, even if this pack would replace the stock cars, now that -chdir (1 2) is a thing. Just keep a seperate folder with the unmodified stock content and you don't have to worry about overwriting it with custom content in your main folder.

The current progress is looking great, by the way!

The cars are currently set to replace the original cars. But there are actually a couple ways to set up RVGL to work around this. A person can actually setup several copies of RVGL or even older copies of Re-Volt to run on the same computer. I've already done this on my computer I have seven different copies on my computer for various reasons. Or as Wichilie has pointed out a person can use the -chdir function to keep different assets of the game separated in different directories.

Looks nice, but maybe you could use/contribute to the existing remodels of stock cars from the dead Re-Make project? Guys from there remodeled some cars already, not in a way that everyone likes but it could be transformed into "more realistic stock Re-Volt RC Cars" custom car pack or something. The wheels and springs look especially good.

The idea is really cool, Iron Bob. The execution looks great as well and I am curious how the details will look like when the cars are completed!

I really like how the RC Bandit looks like! Keep up the good work, this is real high quality work!

Maybe an alternative rear wheel texture/model would be really cool as well, I think such as this one would be really suitable.

I see the effort you put in to do this and I like how it turns out. :D

We are using the same wheel texture coordinates on all the cars we are working on. so all the wheels will be able to be switched with one another when the project is complete. There are several reasons for this. I currently have ten different tire models and six different rim models made for the project. I intend to expand this quite a bit.

I see some bleeding textures around the detailed parts at sides and at the roof (if I am not mistaken).
Still an impressive job.

I'm currently trying to get the cars all modeled and some paint on them to make sure they are texture mapped correctly. I will go back and finalize the paint and details of each car later.
