  1. Hello Everyone! Can any experienced modder can do a repaintable Volkswagen W12 Syncro and Volkswagen W12 Roadster? Us, as in TDU players know that VW W12 and Roadster cannot be repainted (unless you take it to a paintjob shop that lets you respray any color you technically want) Since VW W12's are in 2 main colors; Red and Yellow, while interiors are Blue and Orange-ish. Anyone would be happy to get a car that you can repaint in 2-4 colors. Exterior and interior of course, If anyone can or does that everyone will be happy to cruise in a car with their desired color of choice.

  3. For all newcomers that are unable to find answers via searching, please ask your questions regarding the acquisition and installation of TDU2 PC mods in this thread after reading through this thread to make sure your query hasn't already been answered. Link to Unpacker GUI: Xarlith : TDU2 Unpacker GUI [v1.1] - Japan Language Support | turboduck forum Now how to insert a mod: After unpacking the game correctly you will find some more subfolders in the "Euro"-folder (e. g. avatar, database, frontend...and so on...). In these folders you will find files that in most cases can be modded. The most important folder "vehicules". Here you find all ingame-cars. C:\...\tdu2\Euro\bnk\vehicules\ here are 4 folders that are important - high (carbody) - interiors ("inside-life" of the cars) - med (make you see the same car (as yours modded one) on other player/s when drives it in game) - rims (selfexplaining, rims sorted by brands) additionally in some cases: C:\...\TDU2\Euro\Bnk\sound\vehicles\gtr_high.bnk (carsound, but not every package has a separate mod for the carsound) Example on a certain car (e. g. Nissan GT-R) Files of the car: - gtr.bnk (in the high-folder) - gtr_i.bnk (in the interior-folder) - gtr_med.bnk (in the med-folder) - gtr_low.bnk (in the med-folder) - gtr_f_01 (frontrims in the rim/nissan-folder) - gtr_r_01 (rearrims in the rim/nissan-folder) The files in the modpackage have the same names, cause it's needed for working. Only the content of the bnk-files is different (in other words modded). And the modded files have to be copied into the needed folders, that means they replace the originial files. Little advice from my side: make a savecopy of the hole "Euro"-folder, so if something gets messed up meanwhile modding, you still have all original files. Important is, that only the car can be replaced, which files are in the modding-package. It is possible to switch (e. g.) a nissan gt-r with a bugatti. But the car looks like crap afterwards. That's all folks ;) All previous threads asking about this have been merged and are below... please read through it - someone may have already asked your question.

This is the reason why I never got the GT86 I very nearly got..in case this happened(some of you's may know about it) So my short list? Current gen Honda Accord Estate 2015 Honda Civic Type-R...BUT only if they make it as an estate as well.(no pictures) Volvo V60 R-Design Estate Land Rover Defender 110 Pick up Citroen DS3 R MG 3 MG ZT 260 (the V8 one) - Facelift or pre-facelift. and from them list of senable come the other end of the scale... Lotus Europa S Caterham 7 Toyota GT86/Subaru BRZ So, anyone else know there shot list? Or not though that far ahead yet?

  11. I don't know if anyone here is able to do 3d modeling, but one might be able to change just a few things from the 512 TR without needing a whole model from scratch. The car is a 1994 Ferrari F512 Modificato, the last model in the Testarossa lineup and one of my personal favorites. I haven't seen a request for it so here's one.

  12. Hey guys, I get the impression that there are many talented modders here, I'd really like to see the ferrari f512m included into either tdu1 or 2 or both, whichever is fine. I'd also like to see the 512tr in tdu2 but at the moment I'd really like the 512m in either or both games. Would that be a problem for anyone?:cool: [ATTACH]28608[/ATTACH] Beauty on wheels

  21. Car designers: Are they too lazy? A criticism repeatedly raised on TDUCK and by automotive journalists alike is that car design is simply too monotonous and that in 2016 car designers have gotten lazy and lack any sort of imagination. This critique of car design is so frequently stated that it is quite easy to just accept that the criticism is valid. However, it it is worth bearing in mind that people, especially those on TDUCK (you know who you are!) just love to complain. This article aims to analyse this popular criticism and hopefully generate a debate as to whether it is correct or not worth paying attention to. The repeat offenders and the marques that receive the most criticism tend to be the luxury marques: Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar and occasionally Lexus as well as many other car brands. Is the grass always greener on the other side? Is this lack of imagination from designers a new phenomenon? Let's examine the evidence. Warning: It might be worth having some google image tabs open at the ready to refresh your mind on the car models discussed below. Audi: Let's tackle Audi first. Going back a few decades, would the common street dweller be able to tell the difference between the 1986 Audi 80 B3, 1991 Audi 80 B4, the 1981 Audi 100 C3 and the 1990 Audi C4? The design language is very similar, if not almost identical in places. Moving swiftly along to the mid to late 90s: the 1994 Audi A4 B5, the 1994 Audi A6 C4 and the 1994 Audi A8 D2 all look remarkably similar, more or less just as similar to each other as the 2016 Audi lineup in my opinion. Today's Audi A4, A6 and A8 all look just as similar as they did in previous decades and most likely will do in the decades to come. Some models might look more similar than others but I would not call this a recent design lapse at Ingolstadt. Images from Wikipedia Commons: here and here Jaguar: Jaguar next, but not in as much detail as it simply is not needed. Any Jaguar from 1986 onwards looks very similar to any of its sister models and shares a lot of mechanical pieces. This goes into the Ford era too, the 2001 Jaguar X-Type looks like it is simply a shrunken 1994 XJ X300. There are of course some examples which are contrary to this cut and paste design job (XJS anyone?) but I would argue that this is still present in 2016. Ian Callum may try and stick the F-Type’s rear lights on an F-Pace but anyone that confuses the two vehicles needs an emergency trip to Specsavers. The XE and XF do look almost identical from afar, but up close the difference in scale gives you a clue as to which car is which. Like Audi above, Jaguar's car design similarities are nothing new. Images from Wikipedia Commons: here and here Mercedes: Now onto Mercedes Benz as this will hopefully help to cement my point. I dare you to google the following vehicles and then comment that car designers have an easier job in 2016 than they did back in the 80s: the 1982 Mercedes-Benz W201, 1984 Mercedes-Benz W124 and the 1984 Mercedez-Benz W126. Have a serious look at each of these vehicles, then come to me and try and explain why the current Mercedez-Benz C/E/S Class design debacle is worse. I would go out on a limb and say that Mercedes is the worst offender out of those analysed here. Images from Wikipedia Commons: here and here In summary: To conclude, no one is denying that car designers can be lazy. They are very obviously are set on having a clear design language that they then roll out to each and every car in their marque's range. However those acting like this is a new phenomena need to get some perspective. The release of the 2016 W213 E Class resulted in a lot of criticism for Mercedes-Benz, with many people now not being able to tell between the C/E/S Class. Although I disagree this is a new issue, I do agree that it is an awful habit and understand why the ever-popular criticism is so rife. The industry has gotten too comfortable, whether this is due to safety regulations I'm not sure. Those who are unhappy with all this copy and pasting in 2016 might be happy to learn that Audi’s new Design chief, Marc Lichte, has promised during an interview with Car Magazine that more exciting and differing designs should be expected from Ingolstadt in the not so distant future. Do we believe him? Let me know what you think in the comments section below or on the Forum: Are car designers having a joke or is this a commonly exaggerated issue in 2016?
