Public Service Announcement/s:

Using C:R releases in C:MD:
Some (if not all) of my current C:R vehicle releases, can be used in C:MD as they are. These can be installed using the newest version of Minge, but do so at your own risk though! All prior C:R releases are being updated for C:MD.

Upcoming C:MD Releases:
CarMODgeddon is currently limited to vehicles, wheels & levels. As such, only my first release wave (Muscle Cars & Full-size cars) is available. All other release waves contain at least one vehicle with a custom trailer, and will have to wait until CarMODgeddon has been expanded.

Zad Mods:
If you have any 'Non-CarMODgeddon' (Zad) mods installed (regardless of whether or not you are using them), the game will lock out Multiplayer, and will NOT save career progress, setting changes or stats. In other words - any time you invalidate the core game cache with new or replacement content, it will lock out MP, achievements, careers saving & stat tracking.

Carmageddon Chatroom:
It was brought to my attention some time ago, that there is/was at least one person impersonating me on the chatroom. FYI: I have not used the chatroom since C:R was still in its public beta stage (around March-April 2015). So, if you chatting with anyone using my name or something similar - they are not me!

Spoiler: New Damage Textures
Time for another big image dump. After having made lots of tweaks to my base crumple map that is used as the basis of all damaged normal maps, the damage textures are looking better than ever. Whilst it is not perfect, it is now at a level I am content with. Some of the following images show the damage textures being temporarily used in place of the regular textures for testing purposes only.






















Spoiler: WIP new textures for the '72 Moth Truck
Also, with the main texture overhaul for Part I complete, now work on Part II is commencing, starting with the '72 Moth Truck. There's still a few pre-shading details missing on the air horns & stacks, but otherwise it's coming along.

03rd May 2017:

  • The Custom setup for the Plows' Bucket has now been released. Get it below from the "Carmageddon: Max Damage Non CarMODgeddon Releases" section.
  • Also, all vehicles from "Attack of the V8s Part 1 - Muscle Cars & Full-size Cars" are going to be updated to make use of PBR-derived textures. This work will take a considerable amount of time to complete, especially for vehicles with multiple finishes & beater paint-jobs, but the results will be worth the time & effort. However, due to issues with GibbedTools, it turns out that quality of the normal maps has been adversely affected due to the wrong form of texture compression. This may delay further releases depending on this issue has been dealt with.

Archived news is available here.

Non CarMODgeddon Releases:

Custom Plow Structure

(Reconfigured Bucket Animation)

Key Features:

  • - Relocated Bucket joint from the bucket to the Bucket Arm
  • - Animated the hydraulic Rams attached to either side of the bucket
  • - Re-enabled vehicle to vehicle collisions so the bucket can be used to lift/push/fling other vehicles in certain conditions

Carmageddon Max Damage Vehicle Tweaks: Plows' Bucket Overhaul
By Mad Mike
Setup for Carmageddon Max Damage! This may NOT work in Carmageddon Reincarnation!

Thanks to:
- Stainless Games for bringing Carmageddon Back

Known issues:
Due to the 'always jointed' nature of the bucket, it is possible that if you initiate a 'full repair' (double tap the repair button) that the plow will go into an infinite repair loop (repair cost will keep rising), however pausing the game will stop it.
_________________________________________________________________________________
Installation:
___________________
Install Method 1]

For if you're running Carmageddon Max Damage unpacked with 'ZADs' disabled

  • 1] Make a backup of the 'structure.xml' for the plow
  • 2] Extract the 'structure.xml' from this archive to the plows folder
  • 3] Run the game

___________________
Install Method 2]

For If you're running the game packed with 'ZADs' enabled

  • 1] Make a backup of 'Scripts.zad', make sure to place the backup outside of the 'ZAD' Folder
  • 2] Open 'Scripts.zad', and navigate to -> Vehicles -> Plow
  • 3] Override the 'structure.xml' with the one from this archive
  • 4] Run the game

NOTE: Use of this will trigger the games cheat protection, which will lock-out multiplayer, and also stop the career from saving.

Download

NOTE: Download only contains the structure.xml

Hey Mad Mike, i've noticed that you named your file Vehicle_Moth_Truck.zad

Maybe add your name somewhere in there so as to not confuse between modder vehicles of the same name. Maybe rename it to something like Vehicle_MADMKMOD_Moth_Truck.zad

Also, you need to have a not-blank normal for your tire material, that way you wont get that strobing effect when the tire is spinning. Here's one! Dropbox Link

By the way, your mod is badass.

01st May 2017:
Testing a slightly different export process for PBR assets from SP, resulting in more better consistency between CMD & SP. Thanks to AlexTSK for sharing his findings on this. At the very least, the textures for the AAW Stinger, Fraud Grand Rioter, Callahan Cab & Quarantine Cab will be updated for the next release. Ideally the other 10 vehicles will also be converted to PBR derived paint textures.

28th April 2017:
The generic gear ratios & final drive ratios across all vehicles are being replaced with authentic data, max' engine RPM is also being adjusted. Overall, straight line performance across most vehicles is largely similiar in terms of top speed, however the differences in gearing make each car feel far more unique.

Update: 01st May 2017:
For anyone interested, below is the list of new gearing setups that will be coming in next update:

Spoiler: Lots of numbers
  • AAW Stinger - 3 Speed Transmission (1:1 Top gear), - 3.15:1 Final Drive - Top speed: 168 Mph
  • Fraud Grand Rioter - 4 Speed Transmission (1:1 Top gear), - 3.00:1 Final Drive - Top speed: 172 Mph
  • Monty Carnage - 4 Speed Transmission (0.696:1 Top gear), - 4.1:1 Final Drive - Top speed: 176 Mph
  • Paralyser Grand Prick - 4 Speed Transmission (0.696:1 Top gear), - 4.1:1 Final Drive - Top speed: 170 Mph
  • Paralyser Trash Em - 4 Speed Transmission (1:1 Top gear), - 3.08:1 Final Drive - Top speed: 176 Mph
  • Stodge Barger - 4 Speed Transmission (1:1 Top gear), - 2.76:1 Final Drive - Top speed: 197 Mph
  • Stodge Squad Car ('74) - 3 Speed Transmission (1:1 Top gear), - 3.23:1 Final Drive - Top speed: 170 Mph
  • Stodge Squad Car ('78) - 3 Speed Transmission (1:1 Top gear), - 3.23:1 Final Drive - Top speed: 166 Mph
  • Blood Riviera - 3 Speed Transmission (1:1 Top gear), - 2.73:1 Final Drive - Top speed: 163 Mph
  • Callahan Cab - 3 Speed Transmission (1:1 Top gear), - 3.31:1 Final Drive - Top speed: 152 Mph
  • Hevy Impaler - 3 Speed Transmission (1:1 Top gear), - 3.08:1 Final Drive - Top speed: 154 Mph
  • Hick Pickup - 4 Speed Transmission (0.7:1 Top gear), - 4.27:1 Final Drive - Top speed: 149 Mph
  • Leadpumper - 3 Speed Transmission (1:1 Top gear), - 3.00:1 Final Drive - Top speed: 160 Mph
  • Quarantine Cab - No changes

Drag Coefficients have also been changed, and brake strengths might get tweaked.
____________________________________________________________________________
24th April 2017:
After lots more testing, I've finally got the glow shader 'glow_simple_norm_spec_env_base' to a point where my car lights look reasonably good. All future releases & updates will now be using it.
Furthermore, minor performance adjustments are also being applied to all vehicles

  • - Actual top speed is now in-line with rated top speed (changes to Max RPM &/or final drive ratio)
  • - Added clutch delay for more realistic shifting between gears, most cars pitch when shifting now
  • - After having finally worked out which ratios apply to which gears, the Gear Ratios & final drive ratios across all cars might be getting replaced with real world accurate data. Tests with the Stodge Barger have yielded good results

____________________________________________________________________________
15th April 2017:
Since Part II (Vigilante 8 Rebuilds) is essentially done now, focus has shifted back to big rigs. As such, here's something else I've been working on that might make it into Part III with all of the other trucks.

More WIP with custom trailers has yielded an interesting result... ...a mobile trap.

Spoiler: Images
This seemingly plain 1970s Dry van trailer holds a dark secret...

...The vehicles stuck inside.

They didn't last long when that trailer got left under the crusher.

19th November 2016

  • - All 'older' vehicles have had optimization of engine parts, more specifically the removal of dedicated structure part entries for all pulleys/fans. Parent parts now make use of the relevant 'NamedIn' Functions that my newer vehicles are using
  • - Rear bumper on the Monty Carnage has been updated, and is now parented to the chassis instead of the c_body
  • - Split up 'Misc' Engine parts (Radiator, Brake Master Cylinder) on the Leadpumper, and re-parented parts where applicable
  • - Electric fans are no-longer linked to ENGINE_RPM, but are now linked to CONSTANT_OVER_TIME instead
  • - Promotional video for Wave 1 is now complete
  • - Despite repeated attempts, I have been un-successful in setting up user controllable police lights/sirens. I did manage to get the police lights on the squad car turning on/off with the horn (no siren SFX though), but that messes with all of the regular car lights. It also means the squad car cannot be chosen as an AI opponent due to the vehicle being declared as a 'Cop'. For the time being, the light/siren setup is the same as in CR
  • - I've also dug up a few alternative V8 start up sounds to take the place of the stock ones used by the 'SUV' & 'Drag' sounds, these will be made available as optional extras.

14th November 2016
All vehicles in Wave 1 are essentially ready for release. There are some minor adjustments that still have to be made, and once the new C:MD version of Minge is available, I can look at getting Wave 1 out there. Recording & editing of the promotional video is now under way. The other release waves include vehicles with trailers, so those will be held back until further notice.

Spoiler: For anyone who is interested, here's the rough change/update list that applies to most of the vehicles in Wave 1:
  • External Asset references updated for use in CMD (Engine sounds, exhaust VFX, etc)
  • Configured Dashboard Camera position
  • Added five new wheels to the 'Custom Muscle' wheel pack
    - CM-13 Cracker Super Stokes
    - CM-14 All Meshed up '80s Style
    - CM-15 Interceptor
    - CM-16 Pursuit Special
    - CM-17 Keyslot Klassics
  • Added a basic 'Custom Off-road' Wheel Pack (Hick Pickup is the only vehicle in Wave 1 that uses it)
    - CO-01 Rug-Head Specials
    - CO-02 Mc-Fly Specials
    - CO-03 Off-Road Mags
    - CO-04 Cracker Super Stokes
  • Added two colour variations of Police Steelies for Squad Cars (Blue & White)
  • Updated Shaders referenced by the following Materials - Misc, Interior, Lights + damaged vers', Glass + damaged vers', Lights_On
  • New PBR-Derived Tire Textures for all wheels
  • New PBR-derived damage textures for Paint material on all vehicles
  • Added Custom Trailer hitch with tow-bar model
  • Amended SFX sub-cat for windows/lights
  • All antenna animations are now linked to SPEED_OVER_TIME only
  • Added basic UI text for Driver Name, Driver Bio & Vehicle Name
  • Added 'hack' UI text for Paint-Job names & Wheel Names
  • Updated shrapnel reference
  • Small increase in grip factor (around 5%) on all muscle cars over previous releases
  • 'Toughness' value printed to garage now includes base offensive value in calculation

After digging through Environment setup files, and then the games .exe to see if there were any hints about adding strings to the UI - it turns out there are methods which allow the setting of the driver name, driver bio & vehicle name locally from the vehicle_setup.lol.

Spoiler:

Simply add this to the end of the vehicle_setup.lol

override_vehicle_name = "YOUR VEHICLE NAME HERE"
override_driver_name = "YOUR DRIVER NAME HERE"
override_bio = "YOUR DRIVER BIO HERE"

I didn't find anything regarding how to set the "Short" driver name, but the game will use the full length name in its place

This still leaves paint-jobs & wheels without any real UI text, but I guess you can fudge the localisation entry code to resemble the name.

05th November 2016: News Round 1
For the most part, all vehicles that will be going into 'Attack of the V8s' Wave One for Carmageddon Max Damage have been completed. Ideally, I will wait until Trent has had a chance to update Minge for use in CMD, and also until we have a 'Max Damage' modding section before releasing Wave One, which will consist of the following vehicles. (New vehicles are in Anagram form)
Muscle Cars:

  • - Monty Carnage
  • - Paralyser Grand Prick
  • - Paralyser Trash Em
  • - Stodge Barger
  • - Stodge Squad Car '78
  • - Do Gas Card Quest '74
  • - Rio Grade Draft run
  • - Sat Near Wig

Full-size Cars: (Formerly known as 'Heavy Hitters')

  • - Blood Riviera
  • - Hevy Impaler
  • - Hick Pickup
  • - Leadpumper
  • - Quarantine Cab (Special Guest)
  • - Call haba Can

29th October 2016:
Some more images from testing custom trailers. It does look like CarMODgeddon doesn't support them at the moment.

Spoiler:


I do plan on fitting a 'Towing Package' to all regular vehicles that will be allowed to tow the camper/caravan. It will only be a simple tow-bar that will attach to either the 'c_Body' (for Uni-body cars) or to the 'chassis' (for body-on-frame cars), and it will override the standard 'trailer hitch' point that the game assigns.

On the whole, all of the regular vehicles that I have been testing are coming along nicely. The game automatically places the dash cam inside the drivers head, but more often than not, it needs to be adjusted slightly from there.
____________________________________________________________________________
28th October 2016:
I have been testing a few of my vehicles in Carmageddon: Max Damage, and I am pleased to announce that some (if not all) of my current C:R vehicle releases, can be used in C:MD as they are. You will have to install them manually (editing the carMODgeddon.lua), or you can install them into C:R with MINGE, and then move the CarMODgeddon Folder from C:R to C:MD. Do so at your own risk though.

Due to a number of changes in C:MD (Sound Effects, Engine Sounds, Particle Effects, Materials, among other things), some vehicles may not function entirely as they should. An example is the 'Jeep' sound now being referred to as 'SUV', so some vehicles will not have an engine sound.

Spoiler: A few screens from some early tests"

Getting a rig setup with a trailer is considerably easier than I expected, although setting up the custom trailers for this (among other rigs) is still to be done


Once I've collated everything that needs to be 'updated' or added for C:MD versions, work will continue at full speed on moving all vehicles properly into C:MD. NOTE: Due to the volume of content, Wave One of 'Attack of the V8s' for Carmageddon Max Damage will feature 'Muscle Cars' & 'Full Size Cars' only.
____________________________________________________________________________
27th October 2016:
Public Service Announcement/s:
All current WIP/Work-In-Progress content is being held back for Carmageddon Max Damage. 14 of the 15 current releases for C:R have already received some significant updates, and this will draw a considerable line between C:R & C:MD versions.
____________________________________________________________________________
15th August 2016: 'Classified' back-log content for Carmageddon Max Damage is well under way.

24th July 2016: Well this has taken long enough. New stock now in! Quarantine Hover Cab is now available for download. Thanks to Psyrgery & Deadhart for paint-job contributions.

____________________________________________________________________________
15th July 2016: It is highly unlikely that there will be any updates to any of the 14 vehicles that are currently released, until Carmageddon Max Damage launches on PC. This does not affect the intended release of Quarantine Cab for Carmageddon Reincarnation
____________________________________________________________________________
4th July 2016: After reviewing all vehicles in the build que, the Quarantine Cab will probably be my last release for Carmageddon Reincarnation. All other vehicles in the build que will most likely be held back for the PC release of Carmageddon Max Damage.
____________________________________________________________________________
29th June 2016: Two new paint schemes for the Quarantine Cab have been provided by Psyrgery & Deadhart.

Spoiler:
'Don't Drink & Drive' - Thanks to Deadhart

07th April 2016:
Auto production has now resumed. Before starting on the next vehicle, I am building (more) period custom wheels, and also trying out Substance Painter. Early experiments with SP have brought about some great results.
____________________________________________________________________________
31st March 2016:
Auto production will soon be resuming. The 'Semi MKIII' has been dropped from the build que since it's based off of a Peterbilt that of not too distant relation to the reference used for the official 'Rig O' Mortis' coming in Carmageddon Max Damage. Other heavyweight vehicles will be coming at some point.

  • - Added 1 More custom Wheel for all Muscle/Sports Cars
  • - Leadpumpers Hub-Caps are now appearing correct in the garage
  • - The 3rd Axle on the '72 Moth Truck is now working as it should!!!!! - It was due to the wheels, Hubs, Axles, etc being below the bottom bounds of the collision mesh

  • - All Specular Maps for paint-work on all 14 vehicles have been re-done
  • - Duplicate Triangles on car lights have now been dealt with to an acceptable level
  • - 3rd Axle on the '72 Moth Truck is still miss-behaving
  • - this mysterious problem with the Paralyser Trash-Em (COM outside any of its world forms) has been found and dealt with.
    Despite the cars Centre of Mass being well above the base of the 'c_Body' and its collision mesh, this error came up because the the Collision meshes lowest edges/faces were above the lowest faces/edges on the actual car body. This was leading to the Trash Em sinking into the ground as if the wheels had fallen off, under extreme deformation or when the plow fell off.

29th November 2015: Updated 'The Body Shop'
____________________________________________________________________________
28th November 2015: Sadly the machine that I use for all my texture work and painting work gave up today. After 12 years of Service - 'Trigger One' will be missed. No work has been lost as it's HDD lives on in an external case connected up to 'Trigger Three'. The result is that I am temporarily without any proper means of texture painting. As I was using Corel Photo-Paint - I will have to find a newer version of it to use, so I can resume editing where I left off. However, The Level 3 Tutorial Car is model complete though, and will soon be set-up in-game so I can finish the tutorial, even if It will be without normal/specular maps, damage textures & UI assets for the time being.

19th September 2015: After some time away (I've needed a break), I will be uploading the cars using the old material setup for car lights. The old material still works in-game but in the menu - all functional lights will appear bright white. I am presently packaging the cars & looking at my options for distribution.
____________________________________________________________________________
27th August 2015: With the exception of the illuminated lights not working, all cars have been successfully reconfigured.
The new materials for illuminated lights that are used by the official cars are not working on my cars.

____________________________________________________________________________
02nd April 2015: Teaser of some upcoming new cars

Spoiler: View Video

____________________________________________________________________________
10th March 2015: The newest update for the game may result in texture quality issues for those with lower video memory

Spoiler: The Reason for this
I have found the cause of this texture quality issue. It world appear that the newest versions of Carmageddon Reincarnation automatically calculate the 'image quality' (previously selectable by user) based on the amount of Video Ram Available. Subsequently it is selecting lower resolution mip-maps for cars and all other Non VT assets, unless you have lots of VRAM. It seems to either be loading full resolution textures or lowest quality only though.

____________________________________________________________________________
15th February 2015: "After some time in the shop. We've got cars back on the lot."

Original Post: Thanks for the link, I don't have proper software for normal maps at the moment. I'm doing what I can with CorelTexture8, but I usually end up referencing the base texture or a modified version (decals removed with just ridge detail) as the normal map at the moment. I'll add that to the final features list.

Thanks again for the feedback :) You can give the Plow and APC a real Headache with this Rig

Really nice Mike!

I loved the detail you've done, moving parts, the doors everything is so perfect on it.

I can always send your more V8 models I nearly ported them all. Haven't done it in a while though, and not sure if Errol has looked into the archives from the game yet.

Of course! Rattler would be great with your skill. I really couldn't believe the amount of detail you did for the Moth Truck, it's like been properly updated.
If only I had the money and know how. I'd employ you to make another V8 :)

No worries. I'll keep the Rattler in mind :)

Thanks. I'd love to see another V8. In my opinion V8 Arcade just didn't do it justice, some of the cars looked cool, but that was it

Maybe the Vertigo as well would be really nice :)

It seemed like the director forgot how the originals were. It was no where near a remake, along with it being hybrid between V8 and 2ndO. Felt like in a quick cash grab to nostalgic fans
