(3d model converted from Forza Horizon)
From the beginning, I knew that the most significant thing for this car would be livery. The car had a lot of special editions that included liveries, so I used most of them for my mod.
It was hard for me to decide whether to use livery “signs_x” that are spawn in traffic, or livery mods that are tuning. In the end I opted for both, so it all depends on the way you spawn the car or the type of trainer.
If you just add the cars in “popgroups.ymt”, game will read order in “carvariations.meta” and the cars will be spawn in traffic with the correct colors according to the liveries.
Trainers ignore “carvariations.meta” so liveries most often will not match the colors. Menyoo, for example, will spawn cars without livery, but gives a choice in the “Benny’s” menu.
In any case, there are various options. Anyone who doesn’t want “livery mods” can remove them from “carcols.meta”, or you can also remove “signs_x” (or replace them with transparent) textures from .ytd
“Charleston” and “France3” liveries, also change seats (linked mods). Charleston seat color can be changed (paint:6). Stock seats are otherwise in two colors (paint: 6 and paint: 7) that can be changed.
Primary Color (body)……paint1
Secondary Color (roof)….paint2
Interior color 1……….paint6
Interior color 2……….paint7
Another tuning: Round headlights can be replaced with square headlights, which are also breakable.
For both versions of the car:
changeable interior color; animated engine and exhaust; breakable ALL glass; working dials; hands on the wheel; foot on the pedal; correct passengers positions; working lights and doors; correct collision; inner glass does not turn completely black after upgrade…
and LODs to help performance:
and very low…674 polygons
And finally, the animated roof and windows. Not bad considering that this is my first animation. Press and hold “H” on the keyboard to start the animation.
If you have these cars in traffic they will also open and close the roof depending on the time of day and weather conditions…
That’s it, I hope you will like it.
