[GAMES] update of the custom car for Trackmania

Just updated the textures of the Porsche 914. They now got an alpha channel, which determines where the car is more or less reflective. So plastic parts and the tyres are more matte and less reflective than the metal surfaces.

[GAMES] successful import of the Porsche 914 to Trackmania

Well just managed to import the Porsche 914 to Trackmania. It was modeled with Maya, however had to be exported to 3ds Max, where it was cleaned up and then exported to a .3ds file.
Finally it could be converted into the Trackmania .gbx file. The textures were exported as .dds files

some in game shots. Still need to adjust the alpha channels, so its not too shiny :D
