Stock 3d car model vs. Custom model
Using custom, unique, one-of-a-kind, 3d model is definitely ideal for any game development project. Custom made 3d models are typically created by in-house modelers, or done by contracted artists.  Every aspect of the 3d design can be custom tailored to suit the game concept.  The creation of custom 3d models is time consuming and financially costly. If time and money are not factors, using custom 3d models would be the clear choice. In the end, the game will have a unique look, that won't be found in any other game.

Is it absolutely necessary to use unique 3d models in order to create a great game? Or, can you create a great game with stock 3d models?  The answer is Yes! You can create a great game with stock 3d models, and it's not always necessary to use custom 3d models. Let's define what stock 3d models are. The 3d models we offer at Game Ready 3d are considered stock 3d models. Anyone who needs 3d models can purchase one, and there are possibilities of seeing the 3d models in different games. Is it highly undesirable to see the same 3d models in different games?

The answers depend on the role of the models in the game. Main characters play big and important roles. Games with unique main characters should use unique 3d models. Typically, you never see a main character in different games unless the games are related. Skyscrapers, city roads, street signs might not play important roles in the game, and therefore, it's more efficient to purchase the stock 3d models.

Let's talk about cars and car racing games. A very popular car that is found in most racing games is the Nissan GTR. The car is found in Gran Turismo, Forza, Need for Speed, and other racing games.  For the most part, the car looks the same in these different games. Is it necessary to recreate a 3d model of this car for your game? Or, can you purchase one from the many 3d model vendors selling it?

Using a stock 3d car model for car/racing games can cut production cost and shorten production time. Most likely, your players/audience will not know that you purchased a stock 3d model instead of custom building one. The playability and fun factor of the game matter more than the uniqueness of the cars. Again, it depends on the type of game you're developing. In some games, one car is the "star" and "main character" of the game. In that case, a unique 3d car model is required. It's also possible that you have to create unique models because they don't exist in stock form.

Using stock 3d model does not mean you have to leave it "stock". You can modify the stock 3d model to match the look and feel of your game.  Be certain that the 3d stock model you purchase can be modified easily. The 3d model should have clean geometry, have mostly quad polygons(4-sided), the mesh resolution (polygon count) meets your requirement, have easily modified texture maps, and have a file format you can open in your 3d application.

Game Ready 3d offers great selection of stock 3d car models that can be used as-is and can be easily modified. We are confident that our stock 3d car models can meet the requirements of your game.
