    Time to re-discover the island of Oahu. TDU 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.

TDUCk HF Garage TDULOG :: Test Drive Unlimited tdu.net.ru Drivers-paradise Without everyone, TDU Platinum wouldn't be anything more than a dream, so, all those people deserve a round of applause and we'll meet somewhere in Hawaii. -Always remember to make a backup of your game before you perform any modification. - For existing profiles, it's recommended to sell your vehicles and stay only with an Alfa Romeo GT BEFORE you install TDU Platinum. - If you're not feeling like selling all vehicles, just drive off the house with an Alfa Romeo GT BEFORE you install TDU Platinum, but this method might crash your game once you check some vehicles in the garage. - Original copy of TDU installed - CPU: Pentium 4/Athlon XP or better - CPU SPEED: 3 GHz - RAM: 2 GB - OS: Windows 2000/XP and above - VIDEO CARD: 512MB Video Card with Pixel & Vertex Shader 2.0 (NVIDIA GeForce 7600+ / ATI Radeon X1600+) - TOTAL VIDEO RAM: 512 MB - 3D: Yes - HARDWARE T&L: Yes - PIXEL SHADER: 3.0 - VERTEX SHADER: 3.0 - DIRECTX VERSION: DirectX 9.0c included - SOUND CARD: Yes - FREE DISK SPACE: 18 GB - Additional Google Drive link ---> Update Patch Q. Why does some vehicles display an absurd Top Speed? That's because how TDU was codded. Sadly, to get the gear ratios to work as they should, you must set the car's Top Speed as the top gear speed. Which means, the maximum speed that the final gear could achieve, regardless of it's power or drag. Usually, vehicles that have an "Overdrive gear" will display absurd values, since the last gear is really long, with the porpouse of fuel saving. Q. Ok, but why it is actually the Top Speed value is lower than the final gear speed? That's because TDU, by standard, adds around 10% more top speed. So, if a car final gear speed is 330 km/h, if you set as 300 km/h, in-game the car will reach 330 km/h. Now, if you set 330 km/h, the car will actually be faster than it should, and will reach 363 km/h. Deducting 10% of the speed makes not only the final gear accurate, but every gear will top at the correct speed, if your gear ratios are correct, which means the speed you need to shift will also be accurate. Q. Why the car classes are broken and i have overpowered vehicles for it's class? Because that was the easiest way i found to get these high-power tunes and keep the game "easily moddable". TDU will only understand a car class change if it reads a new entry on the database. That being said, i would need 4 entries in the car database, for 1 single vehicle, 1 entry being it stock, and 1 new entry for each tune kit. That means instead of 880 vehicles, i would need at least 3520. Not to mention that if someone decides to modify that 1 vehicle, they will need to modify the tuning its aswell. That not only means it would take a long time, but that it would make the game much more complex to be modded, so i used the original upgrade system, that's based on % increase of the base vehicle, but sadly, it doesn't support class changes. Q. The traffic in my game is being glitchy and invisible, what do i do? In the Project Paradise Laucher, make sure to enable V-Sync, to lock your fps to 60. The game won't do well with higher fps. Q. The game is displaying too much brightness, what i did wrong? Usually the dealerships display a higher brightness than the road environment. But also, that could be caused by FX Tweak being enabled in Project Paradise Launcher. TDU Platinum weather system was developed to not require FX Tweak, if you enable it in the launcher, it may override the weather files. Q. The physics have been changed, but they seem the same? That's because the physics engine is the same, but TDU allows each car to have their individual physics worked on, and that's what's been changed. To match real data, because TDU has messed it up even on the original game. Q. TDUPE is not working? Yes it is, but unfortunately i've stumbled across an issue i thought i would have. This issue happens when the database has over a thousand entries, which is the case, since TDU Platinum's database has 1105 entries. So, to use TDUPE, you must follow these steps: To run TDUPE, you must open it as admin. Point your TDU database directory in the settings and click load. Once it has loaded the database, search for the Custom Car you replaced in the car list. Modify and Click save. (That is when the problem starts.) Because TDUPE can't deal with more than 1000 entries in the database, it will make the game crash, to fix that issue, you must open TDU Modding Tools File Browser. Extract the CarPhysicsData.db, located inside the DB.bnk. Decrypt CarPhysicsData.db using TDU UT (this tool i did not provided, but it can be found on the forums) Open it using notepad and set the number of "Items" as 1105, save and close. Encrypt the file again, using TDU UT. Replace the new CarPhysicsData.db inside the DB.bnk. Q. Do i need the game or this is a standalone game? No! You need the game first, this is a mod and won't work on it's own.

    Well, I don't want to make big proclaims, but there is a very good possibility that I solved the issue. Today, after work, I did some more test. A 25 minutes run with the GT86, a car that never presented any problem before. And, after 25 minutes of gameplay, the RAM usage of the game was around 400 mb. No problems whatsoever. Then I did a second test. I rebooted the game, and switched to the Skyline R32. The first 10 minutes of gameplay went on smooth, with the RAM usage around 300-400 mb. But then, suddenly, the game started eating RAM. 100 mb every 2 minutes, till it reached around 1 GB of total usage at the 25 minutes mark. And then the FPS tanked. Just like yesterday. The GPu went to 99% of total usage to 20%. Then my brain started to working. What if the executable can't use more than 1 GB of RAM? That would explain the drop, since the lock on RAM usage would bottleneck the GPU, getting it to perform only 20% of its power. So I used the legendary (in the rFactor community, at leat) "4 GB Patch". A patch that modify any executable to work without RAM restrictions. And it worked. The patch did not comprimised the executable, and I was able to play for an hour straight with my R32, even surpassing that 1 GB mark, and then switching to the AE86 Trueno. No problems, no FPS drops, no nothing. And the game even start being less "hungry" for RAM when it surpass the 1 GB mark, assesting itself around 1.2/1.4 GB of total RAM usage. Someone should give me a little medal for all this testing... About the "4 GB Patch", you should be able to find it youself on the net. If not, I ask permission to an administrator to post it in this thread, since it could be usefull to more people, and would increment the amount of testing on it, to see if it actually work flawlessly, or my 1 hr run without problems was just dumb luck.

    Norby931 Mod Shop

    Hey guys, It's been a long time ago since i was here. Unfortunately i didn't finished my last projects as you know for sure, maybe because i've done a lot of mods and i was kinda get bored of it, also get other things in my life to do at that time and i just began to forget about TDU. Of course i don't make mods anymore, but i saw TDU Platinum project in the days and i got the feel to play TDU a bit again. I just wanted to say "hi" again to the old good TDU community here, and apologize for my disappear without any words, i mean im sure there was at least a few people who may waited for the w.i.p projects. I want to give a huge thanks for everyone who use(d) and enjoy(ed) my mods, since i got a lot of positive feedbacks, what i really appreciate. Anyway, have fun everyone, maybe we will see each other sometime on the old little island... Cheers, Norby931

    [RELEASED] Test Drive Unlimited Platinum

    Hopefully this patch will help with maintaining game stability. 1gb RAM limit is a serious bottleneck with all mods installed (even without considering fairly optimized cars). I remember not using HDU patch in the past because of crashes - might be linked to this issue ?! Thanks to @Mondodimotori for the time spent on investigation and solution And of course thanks @Milli for bringing new fellows down here !!

    For sure one of the the biggest modding project for a driving game. Thanks for this Milli. At the beggining of car modding in 2008, I could not imagine the game would bear and receive such improvements. That's a tribute to this fantastic game, for its 11th birthday. The effort in reverse enginneering the game had a price, now time is for a reward for everyone involved and enthusiasts. Such an epic adventure!

    The School of Modding

    Hello everyone Since Project Paradise is released and TDU Online back, there is a great effort from every modders and a fantastic enthusiast from the community it self for improving TDU1. The work of modders are remarkable and big thanks for the great cars, sound, physics, tools and future Patches. I know some people here who wants to do some modding but don't really have the skills, the time, the motivation and so many other reason to make mod. I want to talk more to people (like me) who wants to learn modding and wants to get skills. People who wants to see their dream car ingame or in the mod shop of Tduck So my idea is to create a thread about sharing all our basic knowledge of modding and help each other for making mods. For example, What is really a DDS ? What tools do we need to make sound mods ? How to make accurate physics ? How to import a 3D Model to TDU ? Etc... Actual Modders can also share their knowledge if they want to; I've read somewhere that [email protected] is making a video tutorial for car modding, don't know if it's still on it. Thanks for his enthusiast Hopefully we'll see more modders around in the future. The first post will be updated with interesting and useful tips and links to complete tutorial for sound mods, HUDs, Import Cars... (I think Iced_Bullet have done something like that in the past but he's not around anymore) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - THREAD UNDER CONSTRUCTION Summary: I. Basics and Facts a) Explanation about modding b) Definition of Formats II. Making Mods a) Tutorial by Djey. All the Basics b) Sound Mods c) HUD Gauges d) Importing cars e)Making Accurate Physics f) Using and modifying DDS g) Other stuffs III. Install Mods into TDU a) TDU Modding Tools b) TDU Performance Editor c) Bnks I. BASICS AND FACTS a) EXPLANATION ABOUT MODS A Mod is something modified from the original game or an addon. It could be anything like a new car, Environments mod, Weather Mods, Sound Mods... For example, The original game doesn't have a BMWs, Porsches, Autumn environment, Day-Night Cycle; With mods, all these things are possible ! Or if you think the sound of your Gallardo sound awful, the dashboard of your Ferrari looks bad, or you want a customize number plate, that's again possible ! b) DEFINITION ABOUT FORMATS BNK: Or TDU Bank, these files are an element of the game. It could be Sounds, Car Exteriors, Car Interiors, Rims, Gauges HUD, Traffic, Environments... Etc. These file contains loads of different files. For example, Enzo_I.Bnk have 3D Elements and Textures (2db) inside the BNK File. Enzo_audio.Bnk have Wave sounds and an XMB file. Commonworld.Bnk have loads of 2db Texture files. This file can be open by Mini BNK Manager or File Browser in TDU Modding Tools. 2db: It's a texture file who is generally inside Bnks. But you can find in ...\Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\FX 3 2db's files. These file can be converted in DDS with TDU Modding Tools to be modified. DDS: Direct Draw Surface. These files are Textures. Example: The Roads in game are originally 2db file in CommonWorld.Bnk but once converted with TDUMT, there are DDS. When you open a the DDS file of roads, you have that: (r5_00.dds original Atari) You can open and modify DDSs with Paint.NET, Adobe Photoshop, Artweaver and create new grass, road surfaces, billboards, plate numbers and so many other stuff in the game. But don't forget to convert your DDS back into 2DB file with TDUMT and make sure to backup any files your modifying ! 3DG, 3DD : (Can't perfectly explain it my self) It's the file who support the original 3D Model of the car. 2DM: Wave: It's a Microsoft sound sample format who can last as many time possible. But in TDU, it have to be sample that last beetween half a sec to 10 sec. Most of these sample are inside "CAR"_audio.bnk in Bnk/Sound/Vehicules and makes the sound of the car. Most of the audio Bnks have 7 Wave sample. For making sound mods, The TDU sound format MUST BE in Microsoft ADPCM format, 44khz, 4 bit, mono. These file can be play Modify with Audacity, Gold Wave, Creative WaveStudio, etc... tdupk: Or TDU Performance Pack. It's a file who contains values of a specific car like not to 60 mph acceleration, suspension rate, Gearbox ratios, Power, Nm, Engine displacment, wheelbase, etc... And can be open only by TDU Performance Editor. II. MAKING MODS (TO BE DEVELOP, A LOT MORE EXPLAINED AND CLEAR. At the moment, I just link and quote. The community will improve all that ourself) a) TUTORIAL BY DJEY. ALL THE BASICS FOR TDU'S GENERAL MODDING AND THE BEST MODDING TOOL: TDUF https://github.com/djey47/tdu-cp/wiki/Modding-FAQ https://github.com/djey47/tdu-cp/wiki b) SOUND MODS c) HUD d) IMPORTING CARS Tools: Forza Studio for Forza Motorsport Models. ZModler Paint.NET, Photoshop, Artweaver... For Tool's thread, don't pay too much attention for the size limit as Project Paradise Big Bnks option solved today that issue This tutorial is understandable but way too fast. I've tried my self to import a car with this tutorial but you have to pause the video every 5sec... Oh well, you can manage doing a mod but it's a bit annoying to stop the video. e) MAKING ACCURATE PHYSICS First Download TDUPE > TDU Performance Editor 2.77 > TDU Performance Editor 2.78 IMPORTANT: Open TDUPE, Click on Settings, Select the Locality to the same language of the game ! Once you've done that, again click settings, and set the Installation Directory to C:\Programes Files (x86)\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited. (Tested only with 2.77 -2.78) MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR DATABASE BEFORE MODIFYING ANY DATA ! It depends of how you want your car. If you want realistic physics based on a real car, I suggest you these website: > Automobiles Catalogues: Very complete datas of any sort of cars ! The best in my opinion. > Supercars.Net Not many data information but you can learn a lot about the car you want. Very complete list of cars. > Supercarsite.net: Another pretty good website > Google: Yes. This website too help a lot Jut search the car you want and pick the website you find interesting. > YouTube: Yes. This website is useful too for watching reviews and know more about your car. Usefull thread: If you want physics on your own taste, bit of explanation: TO COME LATER Credits to Dredgy f) USING AND MODIFYING DDS Very old thread: g) OTHER STUFFS To Continue... III. INSTALL MODS INTO TDU a) TDU Modding Tools Download it here first: TDUMT 1.16.2 by Djey b) TDU PERFORMANCE EDITOR Download above in Making Accurate physics. Unzip your .Zip / .Rar somewhere. IMPORTANT: Open TDUPE, Click on Settings, Select the Locality to the same language of the game ! Once you've done that, again click settings, and set the Installation Directory to C:\Programes Files (x86)\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited. (Tested only with 2.77 -2.78) MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR DATABASE BEFORE MODIFYING ANY DATA ! To install a tdupk file, Select first the car you want to modify, Go to Performance Pack > Import Performance pack and then select the tdupk file you want to install. New data appears. Feel free to modify any of these data to your taste. Go to name editor. Click on Save once. If you see <Ressource not found>, enter your desire car name. Then click on save. Now your Murcielago is an Aventador c) BNKS To Install > A car mod: C:\Programes Files (x86)\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\Vehicles > Wheels: C:\Programes Files (x86)\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\Vehicles\Rim\(MANUFACTURER OF THE REPLACED RIM) > Traffic Car: C:\Programes Files (x86)\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\Vehicles\Traffic > A Sound mod: C:\Programes Files (x86)\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\Sound\Vehicles > A HUD gauge: C:\Programes Files (x86)\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\FrontEnd\HiRes\gauges & C:\Programes Files (x86)\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\FrontEnd\LowRes\gauges > CommonWorld or CommonWorldDiv2: C:\Programes Files (x86)\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\Level\Hawaii > A Weather Mod: C:\Programes Files (x86)\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\FX (Correct me guys if I'm wrong) Thanks to Djey for his fantastic help //Djey again for TDU Modding Tools // Dredgy for TDU Performance Editor // Driver:TDU for his well detail tutorial // TDUZoqqer for his unfinished but helpful Modding tutorial :lol: // thunderhawk17382 for his Q&A thread // Tool831 & Iced_Bullet for his Interior & Exterior Bnks file names references // Kurgan777 for his pretty complete Best Cam & IK Thread // Reventon09 for both of his thread about adding new colors and new names in TDUMT // PhatPunk for his thread about changing cameras with TDUMT // The other modders who improved the game since all these years // The community for his massive support // Diablo and the other Modo for managing the best community in da woarld

    Jeep and Koenigsegg are finished. Also, i've managed to active 4 new garage slots per TDU apartament, tried the same in other houses, it didn't really worked out. Funny enough, the first apartament, "Ala Moana House" is still tied to 4, being the only apartament with 4 garage slots, instead of 8. (Yes, i've also increased their price. :lol: )

    [RELEASED] Test Drive Unlimited Platinum

    Today i've learned something cool. I've decided to take a look at the vehicle delivery missions, since i was working on Enzo. As a result, trying to understand how it works out and to fix some errors that occurred with them with my extensive modding process, i've learned a way to entirely change the car of the mission. That works not only with delivery missions, but also Top Models and prize cars. Here is some images of the testing. This delivery mission was a Miura before, but i've managed to tell the game to use the 918 instead. So, expect changes on that part aswell in TDU Platinum, i will make sure that new added vehicles are required to be bought or delivered to get 100% of the game completion. Ah, forgot to mention, i've also made TDU reach 100% again. So, even though you don't complete the multiplayer challenges, you can still get 100%, instead of 88%, like before. ;)

    Djey: TDU Community PATCH 2.00A

    S o m e n e w s ! TDUCP 2R3 is in progress still, just being slowed down by recent events in my life. Also, I will be honnest, telling you Forza Horizon 3 grasps the few amount of time which might remain :drool: Anyway. I'm planning to release this in the next days, with single (but long awaited) feature that are ultimate cameras.bin with unique sets for each slot (of course including 400+ new slots brought by TDUCP). Meaning 0-conflict-risk with camera use ! And later? Well, I'm happy since Milli's patch will be there soon, with huge amount of features! TDU modding is still UP and that's everything counting as always. That will make you guys busy for a while, I guess. Sooo, the bad news: TDUCP2 will not be compatible with Milli's patch. Ever. It will be time-demanding too much, involving a whole new step of testing before release - the way TDUCP is designed will break Milli's patch features probably. So don't expect a new release of 'MILLI'S PATCH FOR TDUCP' - I've removed alpha links btw. The good news: potentially redesigning TDUCP to be more modular is in my thoughts. This way, it would be technically possible to install only features you'd need, in a non-harmful manner, for existing game databases (including already patched ones). Unfortunately, I could not tell you when this next-to-TDUCP2 thing would be ready ... nor if it would deserve to be called TDUCP3... See you soon!

    WIP/BETA Car slots Add-On V1.00 TDU

    :morning: Good morning everyone :) Some news ! Well, 57% of project 2 is done. The 45 new slots work as you can see: Everything works ! :) All 45 new slots got their own physics, sound and HUD. What's left ? I've got to do the rims for each car. The one you see in the pics are the one from the original Atari Slots. I've kept the original Atari names of the bnk, I've just added a "2_" or "3_" in front of the name files. Example: "2_Enzo.bnk" or "3_Gall_Cpe.bnk" so it's a bit esier for you to know what files is what. :cool: Same for the names of the cars in TDUMT and TDUPE, Just added "SLOTnumber" after each name. I'm planing an open Beta for the next couple of days. Might be release this week-end if everything is going well. About the poll, I will consider the one from here on turboduck as members vote means more to me than the other poll I've created who have been just deleted. If you haven't voted yet or you voted the other poll, please vote up here. If Project 1 win the poll, I will still release project 2 as it's more on the way than 1. Hope you like my hard sweaty work :D See ya !

    More progress pics: New slots would be different from megapack, base TDU game has all the megapack car slots added in 1.66 database but in an idle form, a lot like this mod. Theoretically, for new slots to work online. All players must have the same entries in the database so the game doesn't crash otherwise the game would try to load up something that doesn't exist in the database. New slots from scratch will be my next project but with close collaboration with 2CV SUPER GT to ensure that they work online safely for everyone as a new "1.70" patch. edit: Jaguar XKR-S just finished

    Well since I'm not in the EU then I guess I'm free to :locked: this thread Things to take away from this thread: 1. Don't upload a mod if you don't have permission. 2. Do upload a mod if you do have permission. 3. Don't report a mod as stolen if you don't have (or include) any hard evidence (really the original mod author should report it themselves) 4. Don't bring countries or politics into it. You agreed to a set of rules when you joined the forums, and those rules can change as needed for the benefit of the community or those who run (and pay for) it. 5. If there is a next time, please expect a 3-day ban to start off with, followed by a 14-day ban if you continue to cause trouble. 6. Ducks are just plain awesome.
