[REQ] Cable Car Model, various skins, ~1930

01-09-2008, 05:11 AM

I need a model for the map I'm making right now, and I need it badly. :(

It's basically a cable car model like they were used on early ropeways. It doesn't have to be perfect, just nice and old fashioned. I have some additional photo material if this isn't enough:





Now, the work-intensive part would be that I'll most likely need at least 8 different skins for them (you might see those commercial prints on the cabins).

But! I'm pretty good at creating textures, so if I'm told what format and dimensions those skins need to have, I can make them in no time.

Soooo... who can help me? :)

P.S.: @TheSurgeon, I didn't want to stress you with this, but if you have time and motivation to do it, I'd be more than grateful!

wasn't there a map with a cable-car already made? I can't remember the name, basically a big gully with a cable car going across You could ask that author where he got it / if you could use it.


Found it

Another project from you Albatros is always a good news.

@ Wile E, if you are talking about dod_edelweiss, it won't be a solution, Albatros is the author ;)

Indeed, that's been my map and those cable cars have been nice, but... now that it's out anyway and I'll make a very very much more realistic remake of Edelweiss, I'll need the original cars.

I appreciate your searching though, Wile. You so rock! :)

@Fr3t: thanks! This time I've been doing a LOT of research work before I started, up to taking pictures for a panorama to make an own skybox. :)

Hmm.. so far nobody seems to be able to help me, so I'll go for a brush based solution. Won't be pretty but maybe easier to adjust anyways.

Still, a model would be way better, since those cable cars need to be moving and brush based cabins normally get players stuck at some point.

I guess my solution will be sufficiant... thanks though everybody ;).
