                                                                    Out of the Box

Heres how she looks if rendered straight out of the box, as I said earlier, the tires come as white rubber, while it was certainly possible even as late as 1924 to buy white rubber tires, it just wasn’t what was being provided, tires like everything else on a car get dirty, and on white rubber tires, I would imagine it would show up, so manufacturers didn’t typically make their tires white, although the more expensive cars line Lincoln and Caddilac did have whitewall tires.

The actually loads with P.D. on the sides, that is obviously removable via deleting it, as it is just a separate mesh, however, here is what she looks like out of the box, not bad really, even though the textures are designed for Poser, this was loaded into DS4.5 Pro.

And here are some screenshots of the 3DS version, a file that is included with the purchase of the Poser/DS version of the car, so I played a little bit with it in Blender.

One other glaring un-reality I found, which is much more evident with the model appearing in gray, the rear fenders extend out the back way too far, while it is true that the back wheels were offset from the center forward on a stock Model T, the fenders did curve down behind the rear wheels at much more of an angle than what is presented here, however, this is one of the best Model T meshes I’ve yet seen, also with this 3DS file, I can do other things with this car, like make a speedster, (an early form of hotrod), or even make a cool 23 T Bucket hotrod out of it, this is going to be one cool car to play with!

The 24 Ford T looks pretty stable. It reminds me of the “Flubber” car Fred McMurrey drove in the disney films. It could fly. Looks almost exact.

As I had said earlier, I grew up with the Model T, my dad collected old cars, and the Model T’s we had were among our favorites, we were also members of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Model T for Club of America, in the 1970’s, much of my early driver training was done in a 1925 Ford Coupe, yes, they used a Model T Ford in the movie, The Absent Minded Professor, which was a great movie, (too bad they don’t still make movies like that anymore)!

Well, I know that DAZ has a nicer model of this car, but not priced at $1.99, again this one could have been made more accurate, not necessarily perfect, and certainly not an exact copy of the 57 AM model, but at least its better than the family car 1950.

Betsy…How did you get the 57TBird to work in DS4? I bought it and installed the DS3 FILES, and the DS4 files (.trx). I got it to open fine in DS3, but the DS4 files are .duf extensions and My DS4 says it is an unknown format. It will not open them or even show them in the content. I had to go to the file location to find them. After the car threw my antivirus into a spin and kept deleting the .exe. files, I finally had to turn it off to get them downloaded. That suxed. It has been happening to all the files I buy here at Daz lately.


So…then I buy the “Rolling Thunder” textures by Moyra for the car. None of the MAT files (.pz2) will work in DS3. Click and nothing. They might work in DS4, but I can’t get the car to load in DS4 because of the .duf file format it is in to see.


This has been the most screwed up set of files I have bought from Daz so far. I always have trouble downloading them with my antivirus’ falses. I have to turn off my antivirus to get anything I buy now to download. That really sux. Daz should have went to the standard .zip or .rar files when they went through the changeover. Everyone knows that .exe files are soooo unsafe and way too much trouble for our antivirus systems. Bad move on Daz’ part.


So…tell me how you got yours to work, and the texture files.


Here is a DS3 render with the default textures because I can’t get the MAT files to work. They are just dead. Oh…and I changed the wheel color from blue (which didn’t even match the car exactly, to white. It just looked more like a white wall than a rim.


hmmm

I simply installed it into DS4.5, now mind you, you have to ask, which Tbird are you using, is this the Luxury Car 1950? Or the older Tbird that was done by Dudley?

I simply installed it, you also need to turn off your anti-virus when installing it too by the way, I know my Avast doesn’t like the DAZ installers at all! LOL

BTW, when I used the Rolling Thunder texture set, I usually end up changing some of the shaders, however, the Rolling Thunder does seem to work just fine!
