Hi guys!,

It's been a while since I started a topic here on NFS Police HQ.
I'm mostly active on NFSADDONS with creating tracks for NFS4 and adding screenshots to the "Screen of the day'' section.

In some of my screens there appeared some police vehicles I use as traffic replacements. Mostly Crown Victoria's.
I got many questions about these CVPI's because these are very decent looking cars to use as traffic replacements.

Now I got the permission to Upload these cars here on NFS Police HQ.

The reason why these cars are usefull as traffic replacements is obviously because of a low polycount.

An example:

This crownvic consists 3161 polies. Low enough to use as a traffic replacement.

The policy that I use for my game to prevent it from crashing is:
Standard cars: Max. 3000 polies.
Traffic Police cars: Max. 3500 polies.
Replacement Camaro, Corvette, Diablo, Porsche: Max. 2500 polies.

Unfortunately, only one racetrack will have issues with larger polycounts. And that track is Dolphin cove. For that track I use traffic police cars with max 3000 polies.

My idea with this topic is to show you my creations. Most of them will be usefull as traffic replacements.

Greetings,

Code 4

Iven if you need to cut polys further I got 40 poly wheels I use..Leaves more room for high detailed lightbars on traffic cars.

@ Code 4
Great to see a new topic of yours, looking forward to updates!

@ Paul:
Code 4 is well capable of adding a freaking CYLINDER to his cars himself. Seriously. dry.png

@Paul, I will keep these wheels. They look much better than 40 poly wheels. wink.png

Here I have some screens from most of the cars I made through the years.
Not all of them are under the 3500 polies policy. All of them are under 4000 polies:

That is a very nice fleet! Especially the CHP and Orange CS cruisers smile.png

Just the Ventura CS unit could a nicer hubcap texture, it seems.

By the way, why no transparency in these shots? Top secret interiors? happy.png

@XJ220, The screenshots were made in Zmodeler. Transparancy was switched off at that moment. happy.png

The wheelcaps of the Ventura CS look much better in game.

@ NFS Police Force, I think if you lower the polycount of this Crownvic more, it will lose many details.
I never saw a Crownvic for NFS4 with the same aspects as this one which was able to use as a traffic replacement to be honest.

Are these made using Nils's bases or scratch built? Nice cars.

Perhaps Hot Pursuit's?

The base is from an old car from Police garage. But the shape of it is totally different. I reshaped it to refine the details so it looks more like the real Crownvic.

I also take requests,
If someone wants a Crown vic from a specific department as a traffic replacement. I'll try to make it for you. smile.png

This one looks very nice as well!

Just one thing - are you using projected normals for the main body? The door molding and the doors don't really fit together lighting-wise.

Edit: And does GSP really use red in their lightbars?
