    Hello everybody.

    Can someone make a mod with ploppable cars or vehicles? It would be a nice decoration.

    Thank you, i will download this mod soon!

    But it would also be good if someone can make a mod with ploppable oldtimer-cars, because I plan to build a 1940s/1950s styled city. I already tried to make such a mod by my own, but i couldn't create a car in 3ds max. I also tried to import some already finished cars into 3ds max and textured it by my own, but after importing it into cities xl as a building, the cars were way too small, although i scaled it right in 3ds max.

    I have a last question, concerning 3ds max. I'm now working on a vehicle mod by my own, and my vehicle consists of different materials (windows, tires etc).But when i export the model into the cities XL viewer, only one part of the vehicle and it's material is visible, the other parts with different materials are not visible in the viewer. So, how can i make the parts of the vehicle visible, if they have differnet materials?

    unfortunately cxl does not support multi-material
    you need to create one diffuse map with all textures in it and apply it to your object

    One more thing: LOD1 triangle count of cars should be lower than 2500. And LOD2 - 1000

    Thanks everybody

    As you can see in the ressources section, i already experimented a little bit in 3ds max an created my first vehicle. But now i wanted to make the second one and i got a problem.

    After importing the second car into cities xl, the model from the first car got replaced with the model from the second car. The interface picture of the first car and the layout are the same, but only the model got replaced. So now, i have the second car twice... o_O

    You probably used same names of models in 3ds max, if not, then in class file.
