    Angry How To: Mod Test Drive Unlimited Cars

    Test Drive Unlimited Car Modding

    Ok guys in this section I am going to explain how you can import cars into Test Drive Unlimited.

    It is not as hard as you think and once you do it 3-4 times you will find it piss easy to do. It is quite tricky though and you have to be careful with the car swaps.

    Newer car mods have their own "physics" imported into the game so they will handle like the real life car and act/go like it too, but older mods don't so it is trickier there. After this tutorial you shouldn't have any problems though I am sure (:


    Ok first thing.....

    1) Choose the car mod you like from the Test Drive Unlimited Central forum which can be found right here: http://forum.tdu-central.com/ If you are a little confused of where to find the cars you need to scroll down and go to the Test Drive Unlimited - PC section and then Mod Shop and after that you choose what type of mod you are looking for so for example: Vehicle Models, Sound Mods, Environment Mods, Traffic Mods etc... After you have chose Vehicle Models as that is what we are going to talk about in this tutorial you need to click on Released Models. Then you will see all the recent released cars and you can choose between the pages or use the search bar to find a certain car you need.

    Here is a preview:



    Tool831 seems to have the best mods and they never crash or bug up your game (unless you don't install them right) so I recommend you download them only from him

    Now After you have clicked on one of the cars you would like to download, in this case the Nissan GTR, you will get this window:



    Now here you can see what type of things the mod has, if it has custom physics , working doors etc... And if you are happy with the result you click on Download from either Rapidshare or Mediafire (different mods have different hosting websites).

    So you download the car mod and now as it doesn't say physics anywhere it actually does have physics if you scroll down. The Nissan GTR has 2 versions available. Nissan GTR R35 stock and Nissan GTR R35 V spec which is a version with little higher acceleration and better handling. I have that one. So you scroll to the bottom and you will see this:



    Now you click on one of the links and download the physics for the car too. After you have been done they should be on your desktop or wherever you save your files. I recommend you make a folder on your desktop and call it Test Drive Unlimited Car Mods or something of that sort.

    Next thing...

    2) Now you have the mods downloaded you need to extract them in a folder that you should call the name of the car, in this case Nissan GTR as I have done, and put everything in there.



    Now here I have a folder called "gtrhud" which I have actually downloaded and what it is, is a new KPH/MPH meter for the car. A more realistic one but that's if you want it. The original one that comes with the mod is good too

    Here is a pic of what it actually is if you don't get me:



    Ok now when you have extracted the files you should open the main car folder, in this case the "Nissan_GTR_Vspec_V1.2" one I have and in there, you will find an .exe file named "Nissan GT-R VSpec" as shown below:



    After you have ran the program (as administrator obviously) then these steps should follow:



    After that this window will show up but for you it wont have Uninstall as you do not have the mod yet. So you just click Install and then it will say "Mod has been installed successfully" or something of that sort



    Now you are done with the car mod itself.

    Moving onto physics. Open your physics folder, in this case named "Nissan GTR SpecV Physics" and open the same .exe file as you just did inside that folder, like shown below:



    Then follow same steps:



    And then....




    3) Ok well now you are done with everything and can go and test out your mod. By the way that car replaces the original Nissan Skyline R34 GTR in the game. This is a new mod. Meaning you have 2 .exe's and a custom HUD to replace only. Older ones take much more but I will re-update the post when I have a bit more time. For now that's all you need.

    Then you can enjoy this car just like I do (I LOVE IT!)





    Also it is fast as hell



    __________________________________________________ __________

    So that's it guys expect the more detailed version of the old car modding (because some modders still don't release .exe's so... later on when I have a bit more time)

    Thanks a lot for reading,

    Re: How To: Mod Test Drive Unlimited Cars

    Thanks for the comments and rep guys!

    @IED:
    Yes the game has amazing modding capabilities. It is cheap nowadays. Most websites have it for 9.99.

    Then you should buy the expansion pack which is about same amount and it adds 90 extra vehicles... So almost doubles the game's cars and bikes.

    I will also (when I finish this guide completely) make a guide on how to install all the other mods. Like enviroment mods, texture mods, all cars have xenon light mod, change the type of tYres used on the cars, (my mate made one so it says his name on the side of the tyre instead of it saying Michelin lol). Its got millions of mods like this that make it really a 2010 game even. You can even add the dynamic NIY day and night time and also weather effects. Which never existed in the first place


    I will make a guide later on, for now try to install some car mods, and tell me how it goes. If its all good and you are successful at it then post some screenies If not I will help you do it!

    Thanks Again,

    XeqtR
