Modding discussion for DRIV3R.

Although the what I had written about model extracts has gone, here`s my another idea - Driv3r BETA remake.

I would suggest to remake the available cars in the game and using texture mods, to make them looking authentic to how they looked in the BETA stage of Driv3r.

Here are some ideas of mine - Beta Nice Police skin, PS2 and XBOX traffic remakes. Also, there will be vehicle remakes outside Driv3r.

PD right suggested different Miami PD car. Max thunder suggested the beta Mustang (very nice idea!). I started remaking few of the textures, and hopefully there will be some progress soon :wink:

Here are few images showing some stuff:

That 2CV was too much sex machine, why the hell Reflections removed it...

Thanks Taras. What really inspired me doing that are these reasons:
  • Compare Beta and Final - Final is nice, but beta had something final NEVER had. Real atmoshpere with correct cars;
  • Beta had more Citroen models in Nice. Look at the 2CV :twisted:
  • Dammit.. Tanner is looking very bad (look at his hair, it`s like Timmy fired him with molotov). Beta costume was looking better.
  • Beta Police... especially that Citroen Nice cop.

@TK Actually rustied Zartex is better than fake-miamilicious-whatever skin :wink:

TheOldGamer, we had practically the same idea.The difference is that my project is not necessarily a remake.
For a while, i'm using a professional game engine with which i'm doing some tests. Like you, i would love to have the citroen 2CV and DS and some others cars.That's why i created my youtube channel about Driv3r last year with this idea in mind ( at least trying to recreate the Take A Ride Mode ).
Using this game engine makes me understand how the game works ( scripts, physics, gravity etc ).
I don't know how you have planned to do this, but for me, i have already think of how to do mine.
I see that your project is mainly about making new textures. Nice idea. Good luck with this project.
@PostalDude
Indeed I don't think we can do something with the LOD of the beta MPD :D
Btw, all these things are potentially possibles with a external game engine.

Oh, yeah? But yours idea is different. I wanna make Driv3r in it`s own engine, why we need making another game, while we can mod the already exciting? But and your is good part, this about standalone, good luck. But you need to have the full cities, not only parts (3D Reaper captures), you know?

Also custom engine muddy-hubby process and useless in few factors. Trust me, when I was making games with 3DFA, I`ve been thinking whatever which wasn`t true. Pro Reflections job is pro, when needs improvements, we will give Driv3r improvements.

BTW, PD, your right, I know about this beta LOD leftover texture (also Reflections used beta LOD texture in PSX Driver). I`ll be using this as base to repaint the final one.

Yeah man, I didn`t checked yet (having no time that week) but I doubt it is, so then the modelling left aside :wink:

If anyone with moderator privilegies is seeing that, please delete that topic. Since everyone wants to make it as it`s own, but not as group mod, I discontinue progress on that.

I`ll restart again, untill anyone wants we doing it in a texture modding group, but not copying what I or anyone else was keeping in mind.

Peace out.

No, just because one person is doing it on there own doesn't mean everyone is, from what i can tell its a completely different project.

Yeah BB, but.. well. I wanted to see mass members in one co-operated project, but we are too little to did this, I think.. atleast.

The word originally means a charm or a spell. But now its more commonly said meaning sex appeal or talent.


I think that he means talent
