That version of the Dominion is available here. I have also started work on another Caravelle that uses a Dominion. More details will come later wink.png.

PS: Did you spot the roof number on the above-pictured car?

Yes, I've since updated the car to have it and I used your lightbar you attached as well, Then I copied your lighting scheme all but the tiny flashers (as SDQ didn't have those) Car is being posted as I type along with a surprise I whipped up the other night wink.png .

Awesome! Just one thing ... these cars did not have the chrome stripe at the bottom of the side windows or on the B-pillar, which is why I didn't put them on the base.

Looking forward to the surprise! I only hope it isn't a Metro Toronto Police Caravelle, because I'm halfway through making one (spoilers!).

Yeah, Looking at the pic and others of Caravelle police units I see that now, I will remove that bit and update the file, I don't know why but for some reason it won't let me upload them to our server if I leave the name having the ^ and ' marks on the title..I guess it don't like them. So I had to rename the zip file to just Surete Du Quebec in the title dry.png .

The M-Body base has now been uploaded biggrin.png. Also, I can now reveal a screenshot of my next mod:

It's certainly rare now, but they were quite common in Ontario in the '70s and '80s. Toronto started it in 1957 and other agencies decided to copy them. The Soviets used yellow cars around that time too.

The Toronto car is now uploaded and I also have an in-game picture:

I think I will finish off my Canadian Provincial series now. The reason I took a break is because of a custom I started with the Mustang: when I make a new base, I will make a couple of mods from it before doing anything else.



PS: In HS, is it possible to unlock the NFS3 tracks by being a cop, or do I have to play Career mode? I recently got HS working on my laptop (my main computer) and I would like to unlock the tracks and cars normally, if I can.

Today, I did some more work on the Impala base. I think the body is finished; I just need to do the normals and final touches. I will probably make a Bel Air version as well, since police forces in Québec tended to use that instead of the Impala.

I made it by grafting the front and back of Frank's LAPD Impala onto the '86 Caprice base, since the middle section was basically the same.

Wonderful wink.png . I will redo my Majorette police cars using this..If you'd like to complete the Chevy police fleet I know where a 1976 Nova lurks, But it needs a body mod from 2 to 4 doors dry.png sad.png .

Max I would refrain from using the hubcap for the 6th generation Impalas thats too high poly the wheels from the caprice would be more low poly.

You could use the same wheels Frank used on his, They look like those but are likely lower poly, For me however polys is no longer a issue thanks to Veg wink.png .

They are the same wheels wink.png. Since they are more realistic, I will also use them on the Caprice in future. I could import the lower-poly wheels for traffic cars. I have the VEG patch too, so poly counts aren't much of an issue anymore; but I still like to keep them low where I can. However, there are quite a few modern car bases that are higher-poly than this will be.

Also, I found out that unlocking the bonus cars and tracks is not as simple as I had hoped; but the "All Cars and Tracks" mod from the EP doesn't work anymore. I tried copying the config.dat file from my other computer, but that didn't work either.

I could try sending you my Config.Dat file.

I think I might know what the problem is ...

On Windows 7 (on my laptop at least), if you edit a file (like a VIV file) and save it in Program Files, with a tool such as NFS Wizard, the program "locks" the file. The resulting file can only be accessed in NFS Wizard and can't be seen in Windows Explorer.

I'm not sure exactly how this works, because some "locked" files work in the game and some don't. A car.viv will still work and can't be replaced unless you look through folders in NFS Wizard's "Open" function and delete the file there. However, a siren.bnk won't work, so the game uses the file from the CD.

Since the EP patches the config.dat in the HS directory (in Program Files), it must have "locked" the file, so the mod doesn't work. I'll see if that's the problem wink.png.

Are you set as the Admin? I found by default most PCs and Laptops tend to set the owners (even though it shows your account as OWNER) to user vs admin status thus stopping you from controlling alot. Oh God if you have Norton uninstall that crap for sure biggrin.png laugh.png . Also there is a neat thing you can do to enable a mode known as God Mode which gives you full powers.

Create a folder anywhere though preferably DeskTop and name it this:

(.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C})
