    In December 2006 I treated myself to a new rig - a Striker Extreme MB with a 6800 CPU and dual 8800GTX cards in SLi connected to three monitors via a TripleHead2Go. I very much enjoyed TDU at 3840x1080 rez, always playing offline.
    During family gatherings, as a fun activity, we would take turns to see who among us could rack up the most expensive ticket - I think the largest was around $250,000.00.
    Later I was a beta-tester for TDU2. It had some features that I really liked. But over the years I would always come back to play on TDU more often than on TDU2. There's something about it.
    During these years, I accumulated a very large collection of car mods for both games. Only a handful were not included in Platinum.
    Recently I bequeathed the rig to my son, opting to make do with a Gazelle laptop and Intel 4000 graphics. I continued to play these games but the frame-rate was a trifle lower.
    I waited eagerly for the appearance of both UCP and Platinum. That was a wait well worthwhile! I am now seventy-eight years young and I play TDU Platinum online with the Hawaiian Bliss environment, along with multiple profiles, and multiple custom license plates, both of which are choices in a batch file I use to start the game. TDU is now a fantastically enjoyable game thanks to all of your tireless effort and modifications. It is remarkable what your mod has done for a 13-year-old game.

    Sorry for being 'wordy', Milli.
    I just wanted to say, 'Thank You!'

    FAQ:
    Q: I sometimes get sudden and massive FPS drops!
    A: Use the 4gb exes provided in the patches.

    Q: Is this online?
    A: Yes. It requires Project Paradise to work, which is an online mod among other things.

    Q: Can you add X car or change Z about Y car?
    A: Nope! Milli isn't going to add any more cars to Platinum, and she didn't make any of the cars that are included. Adding them yourself isn't hard though, and there are several tutorials!

    Q: Is there a way to haxor my way to max level?
    A: Nope! Unless you use an uploaded max save, there is no way to cheat your way to max level.

    Q: is there a way to haxor my monies to have unlimited funds?
    A: Yes. There is one way. It involves Cheat Engine. Use Google 😉

    Q: Alt-Tabbing crashes TDU!
    A: Alt-tabbing crashes TDU. Always has, always will. On Windows 10 you can get away with using the Start button on your keyboard to accomplish the same thing MOST OF THE TIME though. The only real solution is to run windowed mode and use external software to force it to fullscreen borderless.

    Q: Controller keybinds and mapping questions!
    A: Any Xinput controller will work out of the box with TDU. For non Xinput controllers you will need an emulation software. All keybinds will work, except the map. For complicated reasons, just use your mouse to navigate the map.

    Q: Halp my game is borked!
    A: Very descriptive. In all seriousness though most issues with Platinum can be solved by simply reinstalling the mod. It overwrites nearly all of TDU's core files, so the act of installing it from your original download can fix nearly any issue with the install. There is a video with install instructions and a download for the original TDU. Follow the steps in either the video or in the readme of the download and you should have zero issues.

    Q: Halp my game is still borked after I did what you said!
    A: Gonna need more information than "it's broken" in order to even attempt to help you. There is literally millions of potential reasons for a game to break seemingly without cause. Could be anything from drivers to unsupported resolutions.

    Hope that's helpful 😺

    That's gonna be too long to explain. I haven't written the tutorial for all that process yet. But you give me a good occasion to do it. I'll write it now, will try deliver it tonight or tomorrow and reply here when it's ready.
    Basically you need to
    Rename each wheels like that: F488_Rst_F_01, F488_Rst_F_02, F488_Rst_F_03... Add the Bnk files in the Bnk folder ( Bnk\Vehicules\Rim\Ferrari) then with TDUF force the MagicMap to read the files,  In the database copy the wheels from the Ferrari F430 and edit all the values to make it different from the original. Specially each REF values that needs to be different from the original F430 wheels. Connect your added wheels to the slot. If you can't wait you can still do it following my video in my tutorial when I edit TDU_Rims.db and TDU_CarRims.db (not forgetting to resize the wheels in TDU_Rims.db), add the values in the Database (in TDUMT using the "DB ressources" app), change the values in TDU MT "Database" app. The video probably is only good for the rims where you don't risk too much. 
    At the moment did you managed to resize your wheels ?

    Don't worry for noobs questions 😎 Yes you can do it all with TDUF ! When you click on "Edit", it's your chance modifying the numbers. 
    https://github.com/djey47/tdu-cp/wiki/TDUF-Rims-Handling
    Or if you want to use TDUF you can do it manually by modifying the value directly inside the databse (my guide). Much slower but same result. 
    Use your backup Atari files. Replace one of the 10 slots made specially for modding. Open TDUPE, set TDUPE to your vanilla backup game. Export the .tdupk physic file and close TDUPE. Open TDUF, open the slot you are replacing and import the Audi A6 tdupk file.

    Its a huge list which is why I uploaded all the folder, but I will try to remember, this includes most vehicle variants like bodykits unless otherwise specified:
    There are couple of sounds that were in platinum that I've switched around, for example the 430 Scuderia sound is now on the normal F430 while the Scuderia got a newer, more aggressive sound.

    I have no idea. Try the torrent though.
     
    By the way, v1.07 of the update is out, and it brings many things, actually.  

    - Fixed rarity of Audi Quattro Sport.
    - Fixed engine type of BMW M4 F82.
    - Fixed and replaced some car sounds.
    - Reworked dealership lighting.
    - Re-ordered the days, so fog weather won't be displayed so often when you start the game.

    I've been enjoying this mod so far, but one thing that bothered me slightly was the sounds of some cars, some re-used original Atari sounds and/or had inaccurate sounds. Since I had various sound mods released over the past 10 years in my HDD which are now long lost on the Internet, I took initiative upon myself to add unique sounds for most cars in the pack.
    What I did:

    -Added new sounds for multiple cars (Including ones unlockable by tuning shop)
    -Sounds for most cars are unique to themselves or ones with similar engine. (Example: VR6 engine cars)
    -Matched sounds for cars that use the same engine (Example: E46 M3 and Wiesmann Roadster)
    I hope it gets included in the next update, I'll upload the file for anyone who would like the file here

    Tob-Racer got a reaction from Milli in MEGA Tutorial: add new cars (Slots) in TDU   
    Okay, time to bring back this topic. I've seen many people in the Platinium thread dying to know how to add a car. A few tutorial already exist. The one from civicmanvtec where I learned how to do add cars my self. Credits to him. One from JPTH. And mine who's got a video and is okay clear but have 2 major problems to cause the game to have conflicts with the original Atari car.
    And with the lastest versions of TDUF Database Editor, you can add a car so much more quickly, safely and efficiently. Plus it's got a dedicated guide: 
     
    But for today's standard, it's in my opinion the best to understand the basics of adding cars into the game. 
    Anyway, enough rambling. This tutorial will be completely useless and pointless on this side of the forum soon cause I've started to work on the wiki guide. You should definitely check it out ! I spent a couple of hours to make it so I'll be please to hear from you 🙂
     
    It's not finished. But at least you'll get all the basics knowledge. And if you dying to try add a car soon and do some experiments, you can watch the video on the first page of this thread but please ignore the copy-paste section of TDU_CarPhysicsData.db.hex cause this is where all the mistakes happen. Refer directly to the wiki. Also remember that this is the old manual painfully long method. TDUF is much faster, if you want fast, go to Djey's thread. 
    I'll keep you updated on the progress of the wiki here. 
    Again feel free to ask me any questions. I'll try to answer. Or my colleagues if they happy to help.

    Have you got the 4GB executable installed ? They are included in the .rar file of the 1.06 patch.

    On other subject, I'm amazed how much echo Platinium is having around the internet. A fairly big channel did a good review of the mod. Great job 🙂
     
    EDIT: @Milli May I report a glitch ? Not your fault obviously cause I did some testing as well and found the same problem. 
    In the British Independant dealer (Lotus, Ford Cosworth, Bentley, Caterham), you can't buy the Lotus Esprit V8. It's set on slot 5 in the dealer. Easy fix is to move the Esprit around in the dealer on a different spot with TDUF or TDUMT but you will not be able to buy the other car on that slot 5. It's strange the slot doesn't work. @Djey perhaps have you got any idea ?

    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,
