Zmodeler can edit the wheel positions oleg, so don't worry about it.

Oleg,
but the interior can already be done without problems or something is missing?

we miss a changeable colors; when you buy the car, you can't change predefined colors. I got no ideas yet on this subject.

Does it still an issue with TDUMT beta 3 ? Should be fixed now.
As with beta 1 & 2 you could not change interior colors in car dealer with a simple unpacked/repacked model indeed.

So, please let me know :)

Sorry, Djey, I didn't tested MMT Beta3, everything is Ok. Interior color changes properly as far as I see now.

2All: Make sure to read the note I added in the first post.

Would if be possible Oleg to investigate the whole wheel dummy's ?

Yes.. We can move them but all my attempts work and move the tire positions but when driving they start rotating out of control from the actual position. I am not too sure what's happening here, it could be only me but I have tried for a whole day and still no result.

If it is only me no one has specified the proper way to do it. :?

Well, the game phisics does contain wheel forks positions. At least moving the entire fork herarchy branch does not have effect in game.

You need to create dummy helper for the wheel you would like to reposition. For example "OFFSET_FL" for front-left wheel. Dummy helper is created at 0,0,0 point. Drag it into D_CAR hierarchy branch. Then drag FORK_FL into OFFSET_FL dummy. No visual changes in scene should happen, only hierarchy got changed.

Now, pick Modify\Move tool and make sure to tick "Affect Children" option. Highlight a OFFSET_FL dummy node in scene (you can tap CTRL key several times to get proper object highlighted) and move it. The FORK, DISK, and other dummies related to front-left wheel will move too.
ZModeler settings for wheels export
ZModeler settings for wheels export
Red arrows show dummy helpers; green arrows show the direction/offset that I've applied (and according wheel dummies got moved too).

Then export and you've got wheels positioned as you want them to be:
Ingame result
Ingame result
Note, DO NOT MOVE FORK\STIRRUP\DISK\TIRE or other dummies, the game will either revert your changes or will screw relative positions. Move entire assembly using "parent" node ("offset helper").

Concerning Interior Colors, you must edit the database by yourself, using Materials Name of the 3D Model.

Hey Oleg,

Just a question sort of similar with tire positions (relating to dummy's) the interior gauges use's multiple dummy's, physics of cars cannot be editied so I was thinking of seeing if the dummy could be "Tweaked" to respond or stop earlier then the actual RPM in physics.

I have a Carrera GT going onto the Mclaren MP4-12C, the RPM is 9000 RPM since the Carrera GT gauges in real life shift at 8400 RPM, how could I tweak the dummy's for them to reach a certain point? They slip of the gauge and looks horrible.

TDU1 interior files was possible to tweak the dummy's and have them slower or faster and even stop at a certain point.


Hope you get what I mean.

I have tried tweaking the dummy's, I have no result so I was wondering if you had a idea. :) Seems not judging by your post.

apply Modify\Exact transform tool on hierarchy nodes starting from driver's hand dummis upto D_CAR object; It should always show "1, 1, 1" on scale for any object you apply it too. ("Geometry" should be ticked off).

hi Oleg,

i've a missing shader when i try to import 3dg FXX

"Flashdashboard" shader info missing

"Carvelour" shader info missing

don't know if it's an unpacking problem, or a zmod import problem ?

cordially

Rick.

I did not actually tested this thing, but I've added shaders definition for both materials. you should try to import/export them to ensure that everything is fine.

Also, CarPaint2 shader materials might get affected too, so you should improt/export exterior model too to verify that everything is ok.

CarVelour shader uses "FLAKES" user-defined option, but it's driven to underlayer "noise" rather than metallic flakes. Settings are the same: power and scale:

FLAKES 0.5, 3
means 50% power of noise with 3x UV-map scale;

Let me know how it works, I'll include the filter in update if everything is fine.

i applied the FXX shader and texture on my BMW, move all the dummy in my COCK_HR bmw ex HOOD, STEER_HR, GEAR

delete the FXX cock_hr, and move my bmw cock in the FXX_EVOLUZIONE_I

do not mess with modification yet, just import and export original model.

here's an update to CarVelour shader configuration. let me know if this works fine or not.
