1995 Chevrolet Caprice
- A Work In Progress for GameBanana
This is a 1995 Chevy Caprice. This particular design of the Caprice started in 1991. It was the cop car of the era, well into the early 2000s until the Crown Victorias came along and stole the spotlight, and repeat.
I had a bit of trouble with this model. The trouble I had the most was trying to line up the polys to closely resemble the real car. Then it was a matter of consistent polys. Too many vertecies and polygons were crooked and the topology was starting to look awful.
I'm not kidding. The latest revision of this model has broken faces. That basically means nothing I do will fix it. Smooth shading does not work no matter how many times you click it. The damage is permanent. Luckily I have a revision of the model before the unexpected error but I find it unlikely I will work on this again. What a pain. It was looking good too, until I started fighting the inconsistent polys and the look of the topology started putting me off. So I posted this here, to serve as a reminder of where my skills are now, and as an archive of what I have done and hopefully I can do better next time.
Oh and I also used textures from GTA3. The grill I had to sample from an image of an actual Caprice myself, I think. I don't remember too well. They looked good but I don't could legally get away with using textures from other games especially if they're from Rockstar.
