    Test Drive Unlimited Platinum v1.0 - Torrent

    Time to re-discover the island of Oahu.
    Test Drive Unlimited Platinum pursue the objective to be more than a collection of many different mods in a pack, the objective is to deliver a whole new experience, a whole new way to play with endless possibilities to choose at your own demand, ready to go.
    The work being done is beyond the gathering of different vehicles, sounds and gauges from different online websites and packing them together, it goes further to new physics, brand new weather, compatible with HDiR, new world textures and also new music for background and radio statios.

    Test Drive Unlimited Platinum is a non-profitable project, made with the intention to enhance the gameplay of Test Drive Unlimited.

    -> TDU Platinum Dealer Updates <- 01 - US Independents Dealership Update

    Good news! 
    I've been thinking about this for a while, and i finally decided to do it so.  Everyone knows that Platinum 2.0 is under development, at a really not desired pace, but moving nonetheless, also, what not everyone knows is my progress schedule. I am working a dealer at a time, so i decided, why not release small updates once i finish these dealers? 
    This way, you guys not only will be able to follow my progress closely, how will also be able to enjoy new things without massive waiting times. Although, not everything is good, and there are compromises.  One of them is, these updates are not cumulative and not single picked downloads, if you skip one, the next one might cause bugs and crash your game, so, download all of them and keep yourself up to date! 
    I mean, if you haven't downloaded and installed update 01, the following update (02), won't work. You will need to download 01, and 02, install both. 
    Another compromise, if you edit the database of the game, your personal changes will not be carried over.
    Now, keeping that in mind, download it and have fun. 

    -> How to install <-
    Just replace the files in the according folders.  (v1.21 MUST be installed before this)

    -> 01 - US Independents Update Content <- 
    - Updated Shelby Series 1 with stripeless variation added as a tune
    - Updated Saleen S7 Twin Turbo and Saleen S7 Twin Turbo Competition with fixed gauges and new tailight texture
    - Updated SSC Ultimate Aero with fixed shadows, new tailight texture, paintable interior and GPS screen

    FX by TDU_Daydream

    Replace files in folder Test Drive Unlimited Daydream\Euro\Bnk. 
    For correct operation, you need a Fix Map in TDUMT!
    My "Real Water Mod" is already attached!
    In this archive, these files have a different size from the original. The registry checks this and will not start the game until this error is fixed. To do this, you need the Magic MAP Tool. The easiest way to use it is to download TDUMT 1.10.2 or 1.13 and there press MAP Tool -> Fix All

    TDU Platinum Radio Fix

    I would like to present updated soundtrack for Test Drive Unlimited Platinum. Thanks to Milli's work on this great mod, I worked on this fix with pleasure. 
    Why and for what? 
    Well, while playing TDU Platinum it seemed that some songs had very poor sound quality. They sounded wrong. Then, I discovered that some songs even had incorrect ingame names. So, as I knew how I could manage this, I made this fix.
    -Updated music quality (MP3, 48,0 kHz, 320 kbps, Stereo). It was maxed out as possible to work ingame;
    -Corrected/added information about songs and its positions in .station files (file name, title, artist and album(radio name)); 
    -"It just works". 
    Download (982MB) is available on Google Disk. Instruction is included.
    What do you think about it? I will be glad to read your reviews. 
    P.S. Also I think it would be great, if these fixed files were included in Platinum mod.

    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.

    A 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.

    Test Drive Unlimited Vanilla Supercharged

    This 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

    TDU1 Online Pursuit - Police Bookmarks

    If you have ever played any classic racing game featuring police chases, you'll know that the AI cops can keep spawning ahead of you even after you've left them in your dust.
    In Test Drive Unlimited, with the right group of friends, you can recreate numerous game modes, such as police chases.
    A Bookmarks file has been prepared for a group of friends to use so that those playing the role of police can jump ahead of the player they are chasing in case they fall behind.  This requires that the suspect stick to a predefined route along the east coast of O'ahu.  The route is approximate 74 km (46 mi). The route allows police to predict where the suspect will go before jumping ahead, but there are a few locations where the suspect might deviate slightly to avoid their pursuers.  The suspect should losely follow the route shown and not travel completely in the wrong direction, such as toward Honolulu or toward the center of the island.

    Police players who jump ahead using the Pause Menu > Bookmarks > List > selection bookmark will not disconnect from other players they have already 'Locked' to, as long as they don't bring up the Map screen by mistake.  They can then form roadblocks by pushing traffic, for example:

    Installation Instructions
    If you have not already done so, launch the game, create a profile, complete the tutorial, and save.  This will generate the needed files on your PC. Exit the game. Navigate to Documents\Test Drive Unlimited\savegame\YOUR-PROFILE-NAME\ If you have a folder named bookmark, rename it to bookmark_old - this becomes your backup that you can restore later. Extract the 7z (zip) file to the same directory above. Launch Test Drive Unlimited and test the bookmarks.  
    Using Bookmarks In Test Drive Unlimited
    Pause the game by pressing 'P' (not 'Esc') Select the Bookmarks menu Click a Bookmark name to teleport to it's coordinates.

    Suggestions for a Successful Police Chase
    Don't use Hardcore mode, especially if some players are already using Normal mode.  Normal-mode cars feel much heavier than hardcore-mode cars which creates an imbalance. Agree in advance the conditions for when a suspect is deemed to be caught. For example, they might have to be stuck long enough for someone to type a message in text-chat. Agree in advance the conditions for a suspect resetting their car back to the road when nearly caught. This includes if the suspect car flips and is automatically reset by the game. Perhaps instigate a 3-second time penalty the suspect must wait after resetting before driving off.  Agree in advance if suspects must be caught one time or perhaps 3 times along the route. Agree in advance the destination the suspect must reach to win. If you catch a player, don't pause to take a photo too quickly.  Your car will ghost and the suspect may escape.

    TDU physics tweaks

    Supports only 1.66A exe currently.
    Adjust global gravity Adjust normal mode additional gravity when a wheel is lifted off the ground Force HC mode physics on player and racing bots in normal mode Besides the exe patcher, this also comes in the form of an andraste modding framework plugin, https://github.com/Kethen/TDU_andraste_physics_tweaks/releases

    By default, when a wheel is lifted off the ground in normal (non hardcore) mode, an extra gravity modifier of 1.0 is added to the vehicle to quickly put the vehicle back onto the ground. The value is statically saved in the exe, and this patcher changes that value by changing an instruction.
    Additionally gravity used by havok and other bits of the game can also be changed from the default of -9.81, which might be useful for hardcore mode.
    0.0 gravity modifier adds no additional gravity, negative values such as -10.0 that overcomes default gravity will send the car upward at curbs and jumps.
    0.0 gravity modifier demo: https://streamable.com/ldur6j
    Ghidra and x64dbg were used to seek out the instruction for patching as well as assembling the new instruction, patching methodology can be found at https://github.com/Kethen/TDU_normal_mode_gravity_changer/blob/main/src/util.rs
    iced-rs is used for the user interface, checksums is used for identifying exe files, rfd is used for providing a file picker.
    .exe for windows (win32 and win64), without for linux (x86_64 glibc).
    Alternatively the project can be built using cargo like other rust projects, it should build in MacOS as well.

    Brazilian Portuguese TDU1 Translation | Tradução para Português do Brasil

    English: This is my first and (maybe) only mod for the TDU. This is a translation, (Menus, Subtitles, Achievements...), into my native language (Brazilian Portuguese).

(Other versions: I haven't tested it yet, but I believe it should work without problems). Installation is very simple, just copy and replace the files to: Test Drive Unlimited \ Euro \ Bnk \ DataBase Remember to do a Back Up before changing the files. (In case you didn't do the Back Up, I made the standard DataBase of the Platinum version available with the files). I hope you enjoy and enjoy this mod a lot, and that it helps in immersion! Note: if you find any bug or translation error, please let me know. Hugs, Fuszer Português: Esse é o meu primeiro e (talvez) único mod para o TDU. Trata-se de uma tradução, (Menus, Legendas, Conquistas...), para o meu idioma nativo (Português do Brasil). Altera o idioma de inglês (US) para Português (BR).  Funciona perfeitamente na versão Platinum e padrão do jogo. (Demais versões: não cheguei à testar ainda, mas acredito que deva funcionar sem problemas). A instalação é muito simples, basta copiar e substituir os arquivos para: Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\DataBase Lembre-se de fazer um Back Up antes de alterar os arquivos.  (Caso não tenha feito o Back Up, disponibilizei junto com os arquivos a DataBase padrão da versão Platinum). Espero que curtam e aproveitem bastante esse mod, e que ajude na imersão! Obs: se encontrar algum bug ou erro de tradução, por favor, me avise. Abraços, Fuszer

    Vintage Platinum - A sub-mod for TDU Platinum

    This is a personal project I've been working on throughout this year, and although it's not complete yet, it's in a good enough shape that I feel safe enough to share this with other people. Consider this mod to be an open beta - provide feedback if you run into bugs or balance issues, and make backups!
    Vintage Platinum is a submod for the 1.21 version of TDU Platinum that rebalances the game to be set around 1986-1987, featuring only classic cars from the era - normally only available in Class G in regular Platinum (as well as a few non-G cars that were in production by '86), now redistributed to various other classes so as to make racing progression feasible in regular gameplay. I created this because I'm personally a big fan of older cars and, after playing games like Driver: Parallel Lines and Motor City Online, had developed an interest on the concept of a racing game set squarely around the 1970s-1980s, centered exclusively around the sports and performance cars of the late 20th century prior to the 1990s. Obviously, creating a racing game from the ground-up is an unrealistic task for a sole person to manage, so I decided to make a submod for Platinum that does it, as it already has a rich enough selection of era-appropriate classic cars to choose from:
    Class A Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale (Bonus Car) Ferrari 250 GTO Ferrari 288 GTO Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Ferrari Testarossa Lamborghini Countach LP5000 S Quattrovalvole Lamborghini Miura P400SV Porsche 911 Turbo Porsche 959 (Bonus Car) Shelby Cobra 427 S/C Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe #CSX2299 Class B Audi Quattro Sport AC 289 BMW M1 BMW M5 E28 BMW M635csi Chevrolet Corvette C2 Stingray 427 Dodge Challenger R/T 426 Hemi Dodge Charger R/T 426 Hemi Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa (Bonus Car) Ferrari Dino 246 GT Ford RS200 Evolution Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Porsche 944 Turbo Class C Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato Aston Martin DB5 Vantage BMW 2002 Turbo Chevrolet Chevelle SS-396 Sport Coupe Chevrolet Corvette C3 Stingray 350 Chevrolet Corvette C3 Stingray 350 LT-1 Chevrolet Impala Sport Coupe 409 Turbo-Fire SS Chevrolet Nova SS 396 Dodge Charger R/T 426 Hemi TorqueFlite Dodge Charger Super Bee 426 Hemi Dodge Coronet Super Bee 426 Hemi Ferrari 250 GT California Scagletti (SWB) Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalvole Ford Sierra RS 500 Cosworth Lancia Rally 037 Stradale Lancia Stratos HF Stradale Mazda RX-7 (FC3S) GT-X Savanna Oldsmobile Hurst/Olds 4-4-2 Holiday Coupe Plymouth GTX Hemi Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda 426 Plymouth Superbird Hemi (Bonus Car) Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Pontiac GTO The Judge Pontiac GTO Tri-Power Porsche 550 A Spyder (Bonus Car) Shelby GT500 Toyota Supra Turbo (A70) Class D Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ2 Zagato (Bonus Car) Alfa Romeo Montreal Alpine A110 Chevrolet Corvette C1 283 V8 RamJet Chevrolet Corvette C1 283 V8 RamJet 315hp Ferrari 250 Berlinetta Lusso Ford Mustang GT Hardtop 289 Ford Mustang GT Fastback 2+2 390 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Coupe Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3 Mitsubishi Starion ESI-R Plymouth Barracuda Six-Pack AAR Porsche 911 E Volvo 242 Turbo Evolution Class E Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA Chevrolet Camaro Z-28 Ford Escort RS1600 Ford Thunderbird 312 Super V8 Ford-o-matic Lamborghini LM002 Maserati 3500 GT Touring Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.6 (W201) Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing Nissan Fairlady Z 432 (S30) Nissan Skyline Hard Top 2000GT-R (KPGC10) Toyota 2000GT Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT-Apex Class F BMW 507 (Bonus Car) Bugatti Type 57 Surbaissé Compresseur Atlantic (Bonus Car) Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Chevrolet Corvette C1 235 Blue-Flame Powerglide Fiat 595 Abarth Esse-Esse Nissan Datsun 1600 (510) Volkswagen 1200 Käfer (Typ 1) Volkswagen Samba Bus Typ 2 (T1) Unlike in the vanilla game, the player starts out with Class E cars rather than Class F, with the latter class being repurposed for the particularly super-weak vehicles with speeds too low to be competitive; Class G was phased out of the game altogether.
    This mod comes with Patch 1975 bundled as a download, so you are able to replace the 1990s-2000s traffic with something more period-appropriate. Patch 1975 was NOT made by me - it is an old mod made by the OAHUCARS team that got nearly lost when their website went down, and all credit goes to them!
    You need to also download the Music mod.
    Drop the "Bnk" and "Radio" folders in your TDU installation folder. As stated before, make backups, or you will have to reinstall Platinum again when you want to go back to the present day.
    Do not put the Documentation folder in your game directory, it only contains details about the inner workings of this mod and the ramblings of a madwoman with a special interest in classic cars.
    Patch 1975 has its own instructions. You may need Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 for the installer to work. If you're playing on the Steam Deck or Linux, just install "dotnet20" through Winetricks on Wine or Dependencies on Bottles. Again, make backups!
    As stated earlier, the mod is not feature-complete yet as I haven't had the time or energy to complete it, but right now that largely applies to the Vehicle Transport missions as I haven't fully replaced every car with them (it's an extremely time-consuming task), as well as the possibility of a few races not being properly re-balanced (which I would like feedback on, so I can properly fix it). Additionally, various vehicle dealerships still show modern cars parked in front of them. All of these are (relatively) minor flaws that I plan to fix eventually, but as mentioned, they are extremely time-consuming to do.
    Besides that, however, there are multiple drawbacks with this mod that you should keep in mind, and currently they are completely unfixable as there's nothing I can do about them - the most important one is that you cannot achieve 100% progression, because several Courier, Hitchhiker and Top Model missions still require you to use modern cars and haven't been rebalanced to accomodate for the slower cars; as far as I'm (and other experienced TDU modders are) aware, there is currently no known way to edit those missions, which means there's nothing I can do to fix it. Additionally, of the Vehicle Transport missions I did edit to feature older cars, a surprising amount of them are bugged and have a completely chromed paintjob for some reason, which I can't figure out how to fix yet.
    Please keep those factors in mind when playing with this mod.
