Oh yea forgot that one, nice!

Anyway ive been trying to get the Plow in-game trough editing .lol files (with a few different methods) but all my endavours editing those files just caused the game to crash on launch :(

The actual data for the car isn't there yet, I checked in the veh_base.zad file. The wheel data for it is, but not the car itself.

B'aww, just came to the same conclusion :( Guess we'll just have to wait :P

On the plus side, that wheels directory actually 'spoils' a few more cars, theres wheels for at least these;
- Stiff Shifter
- Electric Blue (unsure)
- Venom (defiantly one of the high-value-backer rewards, see this)
- Crazor (? possibly one of the high-value-backer rewards?)
- MegaWoot (? possibly one of the high-value-backer rewards?)
- Grey Box (possibly hinting to the Annihilator/Vlad, or its just grey box testing)

Ran into this btw, thought it was funny, the path of the game within stainless; G:\DEV\LoveBucket

Found a lot of references to lan mp, played with the idea of trying to get it to work, but at the same time i know we're already sort of 'taking it to far', if we hack together some unsupported multiplayer im afraid we will just cause a load of unneeded bugreports for the devs.

So i decided to ask somebody i happen to know at Stainless, and he told me (and i quote) "Nobby says it is high priority to get mp in" so im guessing we will see a proper mp within a month or two, meaning there's no reason to dive into 'unlocking' the current lan mp.

Sorry guys ;)

I'm completely all right with that. It would be silly to start messing around with that stuff at this point I think.

Right now it would be fun to be able to get into the guts of those .lol files to fiddle around with how everything is set up. No luck so far though...

So after looking and poking at most files, i can only conclude there's not much to do script wise (yet).
So i figured i would at least just get a sneak peak at the wheels, it was so easy i really should have done it sooner :P

'Spoilers'

  • Venom wheels; 1 2
  • Crazor wheels; 1 2
  • Electric Blue(?) wheels; 1 2
  • MegaWoot(?) wheels; 1 2
  • Plow wheels; 1 2
  • Stiff Shifter wheels; 1 2

(note that some are grey because of missing textures)

How to
It was really as simple as going to veh_base.zad\Data_Core\Content\Vehicles\Wheels and renaming folders/directories :P Say we want to have Venom wheels on the APC*, follow this how-to:

  1. Go to the above file & path
  2. Rename default_APC to default_APC2
  3. Rename default_Venom to default_APC
  4. Optional: rename default_APC2 to default_Venom
  5. Drop your jaw in amazement of those once hidden polygons flattening your puny attempt at domination (assuming APC scenario)

* = other vehicles may or may not work, i choose to test em on the APC since it has 'basic' wheels, while some vehicles have multiple sets (for left and right)

There are at least 2 more sets of wheels to try btw, didn't want to 'take it all' hehe.
Now its time to try stick cleaver wheels on a twister i guess :P

I'm disappointed that the word 'venom' is not allowed to be used for a fictional car in a video game.

...

I think he should rename it 'Heresy'. Someone suggest that on his blog. 'Heresy Cobra GT-R'. Really rub it in to those Hennessey guys' faces. ;-)

strange it'd be by that vehicle in particular instead of their re-tool of the dodge viper to the Hennessey viper venom.
holy shit, that's a normal fucking street car, damn, not even a badass one.
this sucker on the other hand, now that's a car from hennessey worth owning:

trolling is apparently anytime your opinion is different than mine, i'll also accuse you of baiting if you refuse to change your opinion by force.
