Free 3ds max vehicle models- of use to vehicle converters?

Don't know if this has been mentioned before, but I'm certain I recognise some of those models, so I'm sure at least some of the TM cars I've seen are from there.

The Suzuki Jimny on this page looks familiar..

If anyone could convert the Jeep 4x4 from this page or the Honda City Turbo from this page, or any of the CRX's (they do the original one and the 2nd one), I would be chuffed. But I know it's wrong to ask. So I will have to start learning again I guess.

Have a look at "Buggy 4x4 Concept" on page http://dmi.chez-alice.fr/models11.html, then have a look at http://www.trackmania-carpark.com/car.php?id=989

Now we know where starbuck got that crazy model from! :D


Anywho, I found a lot of cars that I'd like to convert, now I've just got to find me a tutorial on this stuff.. :roll:

dmi cars are almost all in .lwo and in only 1 object, and no texture, so it's a long work to make these cars TMU compatible :mrgreen:

I suggest converting cars from GTA or NFS

For lwo and gta3/vc dff files the best is Zmodeler107 (freeware)

but for gtasa dff files, there is an existing maxscript for 3ds max (compatible with 5,7,9, I tested)
