Custom Vehicle's Courrpted Tires

Hey all. I was wondering if someone could help me out. I'm trying to create a car and swapping the wheels from another vehicle. For example, I took the body of 'Fast Traxx' and added the wheels from 'Mouse'. However there were some problems with them. First, they are orange and have these square edges. Secondly, when attempting to race with it, the game crashes back to the desktop. Can someone help? Thank you! :D

About the wheel, it's just the way the Mouse's wheel is UV mapped. The tire part is UV mapped to a small area which is approximately just above the top-right corner of the wheel in the texture image. It means the whole tire will use the color located in this area of your texture.

About the square edges, you have to know that all 100% black pixels will be rendered as transparent in Re-Volt. In the Mouse's original texture, a black background is used all around the rim + tire sidewall image (BTW you can notice that the tire is drawn in dark grey, not black).

To fix this, you have to edit the texture. And in case the tire is mapped to an area already used by something else (eg. the car body), you'll have to edit the UV mapping as well.

What ways can I 'map' the tires so it will work properly with the textures? What programs will I need?

Also, just to make you aware, I already knew about the pure black values making parts transparent and whatnot. ;)

Hmm, I would personally do it in Blender with the help of my Addon (which is not publicly available yet though). Otherwise, Zmodeler (version 1) should do the job. And probably 3ds Max as well, but I can't tell much about it. And I doubt you can afford it anyway... :P

It is not a stole, Platform! He took just the Fast Traxx Body and the wheels are from Mouse not from ZR6!

And stop Spaming and Double-posting because I know who you are, Strike21!

And also stop posting stupid things on Re-Volt wikia....

What? I never stole anything! I'm giving credit to 'Hi-Ban' for his work on the body, and I did the wheels myself! <_<

By the way, no luck on the wheels. I think I'll ditch this project for now, I'm making others.
