  1. That's weird, I took it directly from vanilla Platinum's OST
  2. View File 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! - INSTALLATION - 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. Linux users don't worry, it worked for me - just install "dotnet20" through Winetricks on Wine or Dependencies on Bottles. Again, make backups! - KNOWN ISSUES - The mod is not feature-complete yet, and there are multiple drawbacks with this mod - 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, and there is currently no way to edit them. Additionally, not all Vehicle Transport missions were changed to use the older cars yet, and various vehicle dealerships still show modern cars parked in front of them (it's possible to fix both of these, but they're very time-consuming and I haven't had the time or energy to finish the mod). Please keep those factors in mind when playing with this mod. Submitter Tadpole Submitted 11/20/2023 Category Tools / Others

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.

  4. Hi! I know I'm a year late, but I figured I might as well attempt to post anyway. So, I really love the mod and the textures are super good - I like how it conveys Oahu actually being a tropical island, the vanilla textures feel too much like a regular deciduous forest to my liking - but they have a pretty major issue in which the tree foliages don't seem to fade to blue or a lower-resolution texture when in the distance, which makes it look quite jarring and nothing like how it's like in your screenshots. Maybe I installed it wrong?
  5. Oh my gosh, that solved it! I feel dumb now ^^; Thanks for helping out! I noticed it unpacked even the game executable and various other files, but I had no idea it created an entire new install of the game, I always thought it had to be fused with the original installation.
  6. Hi. While browsing around randomly, I saw that TDU2 had its own car pack mods much like TDU1 has its own (Platinum). I always thought TDU2 was a cool game with fascinating mechanics, but its car list was always really bland to me. I decided I'd try it out since I wanted to drive around Ibiza and Hawaii with my favourite cars (<cough> F50 <cough>). Unfortunately, because it seems I'm cursed with software and other electronics, it's not working. I used the unpacker, unpacked the game to a secondary directory, placed the unpacked Euro folder in the original directory, ran the Unofficial Patch's installer, installed the Auto Pack afterward, and ran it through the Universal Launcher, but it's as if the game just straight-up isn't loading the mods anymore. None of the new cars apppear in the dealers, be they from UP or AutoPack. I already asked for help in the discord server and in their respective threads, but I've noticed a lot of people have had the same issues as me and they've always been completely ignored when posting there. So I'm hoping that a thread like this could get the attention of someone who does know how to fix it, as well as possibly being a megathread for this bug in specific that people can later on find during google searches and discover a possible solution to this should they run into the same problem.
  7. Is there any way to check whether the Unofficial Patch was properly installed or not? I was under the assumption that this patch added new cars like the Nissan Skyline GT-R R34, but it and various other cars listed in the original post are nowhere to be found. I have the same issue with the AutoPack.
  8. Just like several people in this thread have reported, I am dealing with a bug where none of the cars are showing up in any of the dealerships. And having witnessed this thread's post history, my bug report will probably go completely ignored without any solution provided, just like all the previous posts reporting this bug.
  9. Since the release of UCP and, recently, TDU Platinum, I've somewhat entertained the idea of doing a self-imposed challenge where I pretend the game is set on the mid-1980s, and only use vehicles that correspond to that time period (whether because they were produced in the '80s, or were made in the '70s and earlier). Of course, doing such a challenge while the traffic cars date to the 1990s and 2000s kind of ruins immersion (which itself is also already kind of ruined when on a race with opponents that use cars made in the '90s and onwards, but fortunately time trials and speed trials don't have those), so I was hoping there could be a mod that had traffic cars corresponding to the ideal time period. The only match I found was Patch 1975; while it has traffic from the '70s and not the '80s, it's not really that big of a deal, and would still be more immersive than '90s and '00s traffic. Unfortunately, the official download link is dead. Does anyone still happen to have that patch, or otherwise know where I can find it? I apologize in advance if this thread was posted in the wrong section, I didn't really know where to post it.
  10. For what it's worth, I've made a list back in 2018 of the cars I had played with through UCP, listing which ones had lag (including their severity), and which didn't. We should all combinate to make a list of which cars are known to be laggy, so people can avoid them.
  11. That's weird. I wonder what I'm doing wrong for me to be unable to request an instant challenge.
  12. Hey, did you disable the ability to do instant challenges? I've been trying to do an instant challenge with an AI racer by flashing my headlights at them, but nothing happens.
  13. Neat! Great to hear it's an actual solution instead of just pure luck. That file is only supposed to work for the cars you get as a reward for achievements, I think. Like the Volkswagen W12. It's not for all cars, or that would be pretty broken.
  14. So, far, I've managed to avoid the bug by pressing P, then Esc, to pause the game twice before alt-tabbing. So far. Maybe I just got tremendously lucky.
  15. Congrats on your achievement, Milli. I'm really admiring everything you did for the mod. I was expecting it to be just a car pack, but you added so much more stuff. I wasn't expecting something up to this caliber, so suffice to say you made me a very impressed girl. Now the only thing that still disappoints me is the limited wardrobe choice for characters, especially female ones, lol. I always like imagining my characters a certain way (example: the girl pictured in my avatar), but can never make a character in TDU that looks exactly how I envision her. Is it even possible to add custom outfits to the game? I know that UCP and Platinum adds "swimsuits", yet those look completely invisible for me.
