When you set the dummys for openable parts such as doors bonnets and hoods, is it correct that i have to use sphear dummy because in your video you never gave a comment on how to set those dummys, and from all of a sudden all of your dummys are solid but you unticked those in the beginning to not be solid, this makes me a little confused? =/

Ok, yeah, i did see on a vanilla gta5 vehicle that it uses cylindred dummys on doors, but i think it must be better to use sphears on bumper edges from the place it hangs when collided, am i right there?
Looking forward the new upload, its an awesome help to us, thank you very much.

Bumpers and such should be squares , you don't place the dummies where it would hang the game automatically generates this point , the dummies for such parts like bumpers are just more or placement points , compared to th cylinders for doors and boot they are hinge locations pretty much

What can i do when my vehicle only has a [wheelmesh_lf] i know that gta only needs one wheel to spawn the rest, but the vehicle did not com with the rest of the wheels, i mean i need the rest of them in the heriarchy.

put a dummy instead of wheel mesh, name it [wheel_lf]. convert it to compound while L0, L1, L2 are toggled off. then use geometries (wheelmesh_lf, wheelmesh_lf_l1) to put them as L0 and L1 states onto your wheel compound. this is done as follows:
1. pick [wheel_lf] in heirarchy, toggle [8] lock icon on structure panel next to object name.
2. toggle L0 button on top.
3. drag & drop wheelmesh_lf geometry object onto a list of states (where "Default" is currently shown). you will see "L0" shown there.
4. toggle L1 button on top and drag&drop wheelmesh_lf_l1 onto a list, you will see "L1" in a list now.
