This is where you can find modification tools, such as TDU Performance Editor, TDU Modding Tools and TDUF Toolset 1.12
TDU World Editor
Even if it's called "Editor", this tool is a toolbox to export your files in your favorite 3D editor (maya, 3DS max, blender,... any editor as long as it's compatible with .obj) and obviously do the opposite. 😛
This choice as been made simply because I didn't want to make the usage of a cheap and badly written 3D editor an obligation. 😄
.obj has a pretty basic structure making easy to build an object from nothing.

Test Drive Unlimited Vanilla SuperchargedThis is basically a mod that changes most low tier and some mid-high tier cars engine sounds. All Audis (except S6), Mercedes-Benz, Jaguars, Volkswagen, Mustang, etc, now have more authentic v6 and v8 sounds you would expect from thos vehicules. Some high tier cars too for example Mclarens have now a correct note. Transmision sounds and turbo sounds have also been adjusted, they sound a little lower now (I always thought they were too high, sometimes higher than engine). I only tunned some files but all of them have been made by the hard work from people of this forum, so they deserve all the credit really. Big shout out goes to them.
How to install
Just replace Vehicules folder inside the zip to D:\Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\Sound\Vehicules
By anomonopeaZIP file contains PDF scan of the original TDU booklet, CD Cover Art and Jewel Case Cover Art.
tdu READYPLAYERONE Save File.zip
By anomonopeaCredit goes to Ztryka531 for the original savedata file that I modified.
This savegame has only 1 house, 1 car and $35.5 million in cash.
Controls and settings have also been reset to defaults as well.
Included are step-by-step screenshots which I hope will help the community to easily apply this mod.
BE SURE TO BACKUP ALL OF YOUR ORIGINAL SAVEFILE DATA TO ANOTHER LOCATION FOR RECOVERY OR RESTORATION PURPOSES.
ALSO, Make sure your Windows Explorer has enabled to view File Name Extensions and to view Hidden Items. This is important.
1. Access C:\Users\<YOURWINDOWSPROFILENAME>\Documents\Test Drive Unlimited\savegame
ONCE AGAIN, COPY AND SAVE THE SAVEGAME FOLDER.
YES, I'M PUSHING THIS POINT THROUGH TO YOU.
IF YOU HAVE ALREADY DONE IT, then well done!
IF NOT, DO IT NOW, OR BE ANGRY WITH YOURSELF LATER.
2. Once backed up...yes, once backed up, delete the files from this directory.
3. Copy the savegame which came with this package to this directory
a. READYPLAYERONE folder
4. Once copied, launch TDU - Project Paradise
5. Refer to the INSTRUCTIONS folder for illustrated step-by-step instructions on how to create an online profile and also to move over all the goodies from the offline profile to your new online profile.
1. Steps 1 to 12 - Cover how to create a new online profile. You also will need to select a Male Character, as the offline profile has a male character.
Buy your home, buy your Alfa Romeo GT V6, then exit the game.
2. HEX EDIT section - Covers how to copy/convert your new online profile to have all the money/goodies from the offline profile
3. Steps 13 to 15 - What it looks like if the HEX EDIT process was successful.
Have fun and best of luck!

TDUUT (Utility Tool)
By TDUZoqqerA reupload of TDUUT. I don't have TDU installed and rarely used the tool, so I can't say if it's still working or not. If not, report the file and I'll delete it.
Credits go out to the original coder. I don't quite remember wether it was DJey, Speeder or Dredgy, but since they are all awesome, I just credit them all. I recon it was DJey, though.
