Surfer's Island BETA V2 (New Island mod) 2.0.1

About This File

This mod replaces the northern secret island (known as unfinished island) with a new island. This new island is a drivers paradise with banked tarmac roads and dirt rallying tracks. Its a real blast to drive(especially with Surfin' USA on the radio) and i hope everyone will be as delighted as me and my friend.  🙂


Flying guardrails, couldn't change PMIs so they will have to remain here for now.

Road Texture, the roads only use R_C_00.2db. I know that the roads use multiple textures but didn't get round to it.


Extract to your TDU1 directory (same location of Euro file) Let it overwrite Area -1-1 contents.

How to get there:

Bookmark coordinates: Documents\Test Drive Unlimited\savegame\YourUsername\bookmark\bookmark.txt

Copy this:

"Surf Island"   1 10162.41 34.09 8955.99 0.862 0.007 0.508  427894457

Then paste it into your bookmark.txt. Make sure to keep the comma at the bottom of the list.





BetaTGC69 Beta testing and taking these photos for me.

if you have any trouble with this, please ask.

Brilliant, I can't believe anyone could put his hands on it again...

This mod has even more potential I believe, I would be glad to help with improving it.

Note to myself : time to go on with reverse engineering on map spots ... would be great to have POI over here 🤩

Hints to enhance the mod :

- Provide island textures to view from a distance (from map)

- Provide thumbnail for bookmark


Thanks a lot and keep the magic going !

Response from the author:

not working for me the bookmark and the island not appears

Response from the author:

Updated the bookmark instructions. If you dont have a bookmark.txt. Go ingame, freedrive mode, pause menu, bookmarks and create new bookmark. This will generate a bookmark.txt. Then follow the GIf in the mods description. Its quite a hard place to find without the bookmark, if the mod replaced the contents of Area-1-1 then it should be there.

How did you put trees if you dont know about .pmi files ? I am curious mhh...

Response from the author:

I stole them from other sectors that had them, XD. This explains why you see flying guardrails. I'm not having much luck jsonifying those PMIs using TDUF.
