Why Cant Model A Car? Help Me!!!

OK, so I decided to screw the bullet contest thingy, and start working for a local computer/multimedia contest. I’m going to make a street racing game that takes place in my home town. Well, I started working the other day, and realize…I CANT MAKE A COOL-LOOKING, LOW-POLY CAR!!! Much less make a decent-looking UV map for it. Does anyone know where I can find how to model or where I get a free low-poly:

  • 2006 FORD Mustang GT
  • 2006 FORD Fusion
  • Lotus Elise
  • Hummer H2
  • 2006 Dodge Viper
  • 1957 Bel-Air
  • 1959 Impala
  • or a BMW 325 or any other cool car.Also, does anyone know where a good tutorial on making UV maps in PSP (Paint Shop Pro). If you could help me I would be sooooooo thankful!!! THANX!

practice practice practice… you should master modelling and texturing before you make a game = )

I’m not trying to be mean or anything but google really helps with finding tutorials.

I’m being alittle spastic, and a little over-modest when I say that. I almost have a 06 'Stang down, but my texture maps will suffer. Plus, I can’t fake reflection in any way. THANX anyway.

For reflections you’ll need to learn cube mapping I believe. Look for a cube mapping tutorial.


There are some fairly good models here… Most are too high for gaming, but you can work on that…
