Reposting this here at the request of agens over at forums.playground.ru.

One of our boys over there has made an incredible breakthrough in Mafia 2 modding. One that has taken us five-and-a-half years to finally get to! With the help of oleg writing the zmodeler 3 plug-ins, and yusik, who wrote many mod programs for Mafia 2, he has just created the first working prototype of a new car model in Mafia 2. For those who are interested, I will be putting the links to the actual forum post and YouTube video here for all to see.

Video of working prototype: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrTgqtiPpqA

This is a tremendous success for both the Mafia community and the modding community of Mafia II as a whole. Taking something new and putting it in the game, something that many thought impossible to do because of the way the game is written, has just been proven to be possible. I hope you all are as excited as I am right now, as this was a huge victory for all of those involved.

Here, you can read up on all the updates, notes, and posts made on the playground.ru forums, from the beginning of the project, all the way to the first working prototype:

Congratulations to oleg, yusik, and agens for a job well done! Thank you for all your hard work and your contributions to the Mafia Modding Community! Thumbs up (left)

Ho Lee Fuk. No way. Shocked
That's amazing news! Those Russians... Applause

I never thought I would ever see a custom 3D model inside Mafia 2. Let alone a working car that's customizable as well.
I hope the process of implementation ain't too complex and that the custom editors are written in English, because usually Russian programmers stick to their native language.
Nonetheless, a great achievement it is indeed. Thanks for posting it and congratulations indeed to the modders responsible for this. Salute

I believe the developers of M3 said they used an edited version of the same engine that M2 uses. So let's hope their framework hasn't changed too much, allowing us to mod that game as well when it comes out.

Sonova... Shocked

You know, I can't recall when was the last time I sat so mesmerized looking at the screen with my jaw literally dropped. Cause this just happened a few seconds ago.

I used to wonder how cool it would be to see a fan made car in this game, but all I could do was try and forget this dream. But can you believe it, these guys actually made it come true!

This extraordinary news got me really really excited!

Hats off to those guys and best of luck! Salute

Mother of all Dodges...

It's strange how little attention this news got. I mean they've actually done something so cool which has never been achieved before. What a time to be alive Laughing

I didn't even expected that this could be possible in Mafia II modding, but it seems that the Russians modders could really do everything! Very happy
I had contacted the author of those models - agens, and after receiving a positive feedback from him, I had uploaded all cars that were already made. Morever, it is believed, that more is still to come! Wink

Maybe this could one day lead to moddable cutscenes and custom missions, weapons, and environments.

Any news on possible most advanced custom models like buildings or animations? These new discoveries are amazing! It would be amazing if someone were to create a tool that would allow major mods from Mafia 1 to be ported to Mafia 2 which be improved.

I'm picturing a Real Car Facing mod for Mafia 2 right now... Wink
