    As part of my WIP skin pack, I'm going to include several vandalized skins. Since response from the community has been pretty positive so far, I've decided to open up suggestions for one of the skins I've got in progress:

    screenshot_00231.png

    This Grand Marshal taxi (No. 5T17) has been sitting in a back alley for quite some time now, slowly gathering rust, dust, grime & graffiti. What do you think should be written or drawn on it?

    Bear in mind that I reserve the right to reject any suggestion for any reason, and that this thing has to make it through the repository once we're done.

    First I would suggest using the (unused) dirt files in the fullsize folder, their pretty good and I’m thinking of using them on some beater cars myself. The dirt textures look like the beater covet.

    I think you should make some kind of "parody" tag for the ad on the top of the taxi.

    I would have "Taxi" spray painted on it (saw that on an old taxi on the internet). Maybe a reference to Cash Cab or the Free Candy van.

    I blame contemporary education in the US for my lack of creativity.

    Things are shaping up... I decided to go with a sprawling taxi-themed tag on the hood that is also colourable:

    Note also @Wild Hog on the front fender.

    @Jack5.exe got a request in using an alternate method, and is currently residing on the trunk lid. @LucasBE 's artwork wound up on the back bumper, right where it can be seen by any player using chase or orbit camera mode.

    Lots of space for small stuff on the roof and passenger side - In fact, I need much more small stuff to fill in those areas properly.

    Maybe add a gang tag, referencing a fictional gang? Or maybe one of gangs from GTA SA?

    Go for whatever you want, provided it isn't obscene, illegal, copyrighted, or just generally in poor taste.

    Took a while, but I made 2 thingys.
    flipped.png eat.png You don't have to use them if you don't want.
    Also if you don't want the frying pan you can delete it from the picture.

    Yes I know it looks sloppy but it is supposed to look like it was drawn on with a sharpie or something.

    Just send a PM.

    Hey - I forgot to tell you! You're on the cab - albeit in a font that looks more like it was written with a Pointie. Note also the mention of @CaptainZoll on the rear pillar.

    X-circle marking from the vandalized Covet reappears on the other side, along with some song taxi-appropriate classic song lyrics.
