Something I took notice of while playing around with a few other mods I've been using, namely with cars that have large rear spoilers (i.e: Rene's Toyota Supra, ivan's D1GP/MDL XRT, Ignas' Mad Mike RX-7, and the like), is that the car's shadow isn't changed at all when the car model is changed to another one. I actually find it kind of funny that the shadow is still the same one as the original model's shadow, even if it's been changed to a car with a large rear spoiler or if the car has a significantly different shape. Has anyone ever thought of figuring out how to change the shadow of a car before?

Just something to think about.

Here's something else, get away enough from an ai and the car in your rear view mirror changes to the default car

I believe that shadow comes from the collision box,what cannot be changed.
Or..its separated,inside the exe.

nope , it's in the vob
there was an old program which converts obj files to .vob
it automatically deletes the collision box and also the shadow disappears, so it's inside the vob not .exe  ;)
