GTA IV model exporting

Hello I have been trying to figure out how to export custom models from gtaiv like a modded police car or taxi. It seems that sparkiv cant see the model since it is not displayed on the render screen, please help. thanks.

It’s a combination of the exporter for making GTA IV vehicles breaking the model viewer for it, and that a lot of modded cars actually have protection so they can’t be exported/viewed. Not really a lot you can do.

are there any options?

Use OpenIV: http://openiv.com/

I completely forgot that OpenIV can view car models now.

Yeah, you can use that. The easiest way to get it out is using 3D Ripper v1.5 and rip it from the model viewer. You can also try the GTA IV mod tools for 3DS Max, but that’s a bit of a pain to set up.

does gta run on d9? (directx 9)

once again the model is not viewable in the window so it cant get the geometry
