First lesson:How to tune car wheels by zmodeler
well,welcome to my blog.im from China so my English is pooooor.but i will try to write this by English.also im a new moder.so here maybe some mistakes but forgive me.lol.
this the basic lesson is to show how to tuning cars.you must hand these to make sure you can understand my next zmodeler lesson to show how to edit car material and how to convert cars for gta.and after that,i will start 2 lessons to show how to fix doors and build simple models by zmodeler.
ok lets get start.you need zmodeler 2 and txd work shop for tuning you car(remember get permission from the original auther first).
1.export images from you car s txd file and wheel s txd file by txd work shop.and also need to export vehicles.txd(GTAsanandreas/models/generic).......the images and your dff file(both car dff and wheel dff) must together(in the same folder)
2.import your car by zmodeler.
then you will see your car in four different view.
and you will see the car wheel is in the right front dummy of your car.
3.import your new wheel.
btw,this wheel dosent looks good in this van.lol.but this is just a example to show how to change wheels- -
use the modify-move.to move the wheel into a correct place of the car.seem s the new wheel size is kind of big of this car.so we need to scale the wheel to a suitable size.use modify-scale and click the wheel and move you r mouse to scale your wheel.
this way.btw,if you want to uniform scale the wheel,just press left 'shift' and mouse together...
4.unfold your car scene nodes bar.found wheel_rf_dummy.unfold it.
and thats the old wheel model.delect the wheel model(not dummy).and put your new wheel in the scene nodes bar.
alright.here you finished your work in zm.
5.export your car.
press this to export.
important!!! the export name of this car must same with your import name.otherwise your export file will be 0KB.
6.txd work shop to add textrues of your new wheel.
start you txdwork shop.and open your car s txd file.
creat a new texture.
then import your wheels textures as this way.
after that.click:image-tool.to edit your texture.
rename it and compressed it as my step.
make sure all of your new wheels textures is in the txd.and save your txd file.
now.you can install your car with GGMM or IMG2.0.but if your car wheel size ingame is huge or some thing,you need to change your vehicles.IDE data of your car.
all right.here is my first zmodeler basic tutorial that write with English.have a nice day!!!
