Additional Info About MatthewChow

  • Sex: Male
  • Location: Portugal
  • Bio: Hi, I'm a webcomic and car artist and a photographer as hobbies and an aircraft painter as a profession. That's a lot of "and"s.
    Anyway, came from the now deceased Need For Speed World looking for something alike, and this may just cut it.
    I can't be on the game much because MTA crashes constantly on my computer, unfortunately.
    I'm willing to help on future projects for the game. I'm experienced in 2D digital art and I have basic knowledge of 3D modelling.
    So far, I brought you bodykits for Fortune, Blista C., Jester, Hermes and Stallion.

Yeah, I can help with that.
I'll need to get myself a sound recorder first, though. They don't let cameras in at my work because of the F-16, and recordings from a phone are just plain crap.
So, if they go ahead with this idea, by all means hit me up so I can buy and use the thing.

Ah... I forgot I said that.
Actually, I went through my archives looking for some video shot at any of the workshops I've worked in...
I did find one, but it's super weird. I think I was shooting this video to troll someone from the internet, I have that slight idea at least.
If it ain't it, I might have gotten high with the chemicals.
Or not. Sometimes I just gotta admit I'm a weird guy whose jokes are even weirder. I finally felt what's it like to be on the receiving end of my jokes.
... I did not get it.
Maybe with different context, maybe if I remembered.
But don't mind what I'm doing. The important part is the background noise! Recorded with a phone, but, genuinely, that's what a workshop sounds like!

So, in this 30 secs recording, the most evident noise to point out is of the random orbit sanders. Then there's voices of people that are almost screaming to make themselves heard through the noise, and some bangs from a hammer or something hitting the floor...
My idea would be to take each possible element on its own and mix them into a fabricated full lenght track that can be believable but not tiring to listen to.

I support this idea. It's something that actually never crossed my mind when playing NFSSA, but when playing NFSU2 I used to listen to these sounds and think to myself "Are these just random sounds are are they actual AI cars?".
I actually played NFSU2 with the music off because I listened to my own playlist in Media Player while I was racing. That "Skip Song" key does wonders for me!

Now that I remember, the garage sounds I actually never liked them. I never understood the purpose of all the talking, I mean, who the heck is talking that loud right next door and why is it so silent inside the garage? Where are the workshop noises? I used to work in one and I can assure you they are definitely not that silent. Air compressors are noisy AF and a guy working on a car can be heard from a mile away!
When I think of a tuning garage/workshop, I am expecting some tools to be making noise constantly. I could record the background noise from my work, you'd quickly see what I mean.

As all of you should know, all the times I worked on a bodykit for this server, I could never deliver a finished product, as I literally don't know how to texture the models - between other more complex game related things - so I always depend on NFS:SA's developers to come up with the final product.
This said, you can imagine I get pretty excited to see one of my works at its final form for the first time! Alike everyone else, I also have to wait until the new update arrives to see the result of what the developers were working on, outside any teaser screenshots they may release.
And, as everyone else, again, I actually gotta buy the stuff ingame to have them (as if I needed to specify that, right?), if I don't, I never end up seeing it... Unless I spot a car in Freerun using one of my bodykits! But it gets pretty frustrating when I don't...

... Shit, I just spoiled the comic. *facepalm*
NEVERMIND! Here it goes:

Okay, I just did this because of the balls comic from the other guy. Just having a bit of fun, I haven't drawn in quite a while.

So, this thread doesn't serve of much now, does it?... I guess I could make this a thing then, I dunno. Any funny situation you wanna see portrayed? Any question you wanna see answered in comic form?
If yes, shoot bellow, or Tweet me something @RumfordSuppe.

Gonna make a little gallery with the stuff I make in Blender. I already made a few car parts, and I've been getting more used to Blender with time.
I still don't know how to do the normals and texturing part, but I'm hoping to figure it out with experience. I find modeling cars pretty fun.
Did you like this new bodykit for the Fortune that came with Tuning Update Part 2? I made that one. Helomyname edited it and put it in the server.
No, this doesn't mean the stuff I make ends up in the game, I've been repeating this part to be crystal clear. What ends up in the server is 100% their decision, but, I'm still giving out these for the developers to use freely at any moment, if it saves them time or whatnot.
... I know most people don't like walls of text, so I'll move on with it and skip to the cars.

If you're a Youtuber, and do commentary, compilations, or whatever you're into, there might be a time you don't wanna bother setting up your screen recorder and find something interesting ingame.
Well, I happen to be an idiot who almost always has FRAPS on but then doesn't want to do anything with the footage, to the point of filling up his hard drive and being forced either to erase or send everything to Youtube as storage.
Point is, I have the videos, but don't wanna bother edit them, so, if you wanna download them and use them, be my guest. No mentions needed, no deals, no credits, no need to warn about anything, just take them and leave. May they have any use for you. Although, most of them are probably crap... But at least it's 1080p crap! ... That Youtube completely ruins the quality of.

I have footage of plenty of other games, even better footage, but this is a NFS:SA forum, so SanAndreas it is.
If you have footage of your own you wanna give away, you can use this thread for that too.

Hi! I usually go by the name ThePortuguesePlayer in other sites and games. I came here from Need For Speed World, the game that recently went dead. For months I was trying to find a substitute up until I found one of Whitey's videos on Youtube. I had no idea of such a server in MTA, I didn't even know it was possible to change San Andreas so much this way! I went to try it, and, despite the body kit options not being great, I was extremely surprised at the NFS Carbon like vinyls. From all the features, this is one I was sure it was impossible to implement. It's impressive, and somehow all this is even stable, kudos for the developers, amazing work. It seems like I'm here to stay, even if only to recreate some of my old NFSW cars in SA.

To be honest, I don't like racing as much as I like creating the cars. Of course, NFS games like Underground, UG2, Carbon and ProStreet are big favorites because of their customization possibilities. After NFSW, I gave a shot at being a Youtuber for a game called Robocraft. It's one more of those cube building games. I created cars in it, and that was pretty much all I did. I hate the gameplay completely.

All this creating and designing comes from me being an graphics artist. I'm not much of a gamer, but, if the game is a good canvas for creativity, I'm all up for it. 
As a hobby, I draw some webcomics, and do photography. I also do some sketches of toony looking cars as a timewaster, as it's something I draw with ease just to relax. The name Matthew Chow comes from a character of one of those comics, I usually use the names of my characters as game nicknames, just because, so I end up swapping names often.

Professionally, I'm a car painter at a small workshop. I get to work on plenty of normal cars but it's not unusual getting something more exotic once in a while.
During my experience of less than a year in that place, I've had the pleasure of working on cars like the Tesla S60, the Bentley Continental GTC, the Jaguar E-Type, the Lamborghini Huracán, Gallardo and Gallardo SuperLeggera, the Mazda RX-7 FD, the 68's Ford Mustang Fastback, the Nissan Skyline R35 GT-R and R33 GTS-t, the Toyota Corolla GT-86, and the usual classics like the Citroën Diane, Gen1 Mini Cooper and Ford Escort Mk1, and that's every fancy name that comes to memory.

Despite all this, not even once I had the pleasure of working on a Volkswagen Lupo, which is a shame, because it's my dream car.
Within the first week I got on this server, I contacted Quindo, asking him if he planned on making the Moonbeam a drivable car, one of a whole "Class M", for Minivan. He said no, and I got sad...

Who can freaking resist this?!
[Image: 16657230528_a5ed181b75_o.jpg]

I would totally main that car, as I did in offline San Andreas.
However, I still aim to get something of mine into this game, specially some vinyls, I want my cars to look the best, even if I lose every race. As you may have guessed, I have experience on 2D digital drawing, but I also have basic knowledge of 3D modeling as well, so, someday, making a bodykit for one of my cars is a possibility. It would be really nice if I could get it ingame, so, it would be kind if someone would bother to explain how do things work here in that regard. In the meanwhile, if anyone needs help with any project, give me a shout and I might be able to help.
And sorry if my English goofs up once in a while, of course. I try my best in that regard, but sometimes something slips.

See you, as I fly through San Fierro!
