Basic conversion videos by Madgaz Gaming.

Ok guys for those who dont know i came to this site clueless on how to make models work and convert them from gta4 to gta5, after many weeks and hours spent using the amazing Zmodeler Programme i have came to a good basic understanding of model conversion and feel i should help others, and also take the weight off Olegs shoulders

So consider this as a super basic Tutorial series that will allow you to get the basics of car conversion completed and working in GTA 5

More advanced tutorials will follow over time such as Working Dials and Extras

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.
