    You think what I said wasn't nice? I cannot understand a word she said while stating her problem. Maybe if I could read what she wrote, I could help her.

    It's 2017, don't assume gender!!!! /s

    I can appreciate your willingness to help, but another user offered their steam account already. You can ask for a more clear post without a snide remark. Thanks for understanding.

    So you think I was assuming genders eh? Before accusing someone of something you should look into the facts first. Whether anyone else offered help, which I saw none being done, on the thread of course, not steam, I was just trying to be helpful, but I couldn't be helpful if I couldn't read what her problem was. I was not being rude, I was just asking for her to write it in better English so we could all read it. Thank you for this nice argument, I will be going elsewhere away from you.

    Yeah my plane mods are all out of wack. I think it is due to the 0.9 update. I guess we all just have to wait for the authors to fix the mods.

    Have you extracted files from the zip ?

    You need to put files to some temporary folder and from that folder you edit files, then you put files back to mod .zip

    Like for example this is contents of mod I'm working on, t-drifter_fufsgfen.zip to edit a file I need to drag and drop for example semi_transmission_automatic_fufsgfen.jbeam to some other folder, like for example Documents\my mods, then open Documents\my mods and from there open semi_transmission_automatic_fufsgfen.jbeam which I can then edit and save, after that drag and drop semi_transmission_automatic_fufsgfen.jbeam back to t-drifter_fufsgfen.zip and restart the game.

    Obviously that is going to have a lot of work if you are doing lot of edits and testing, so usually you can extract files of vehicle you are modding to Documents\BeamNG.drive\vehicles\*yourvehiclenamehere*

    In my case that would be Documents\BeamNG.drive\vehicles\semi

    Then I could edit files in that folder, hit CTRL-R in game and have new edited values in use right away.

    Notepad++ opens jbeam files fine, also sbeam files that are for the sound.

    It then depends of what you want to change that what program you need to use, if you wish to change graphics like adding or changing 3d model, then you have to use blender to open DAE files to learn how models need to be set up etc.

    One thing to remember, if you extract mod's .zip file to vehicles folder, you should not have mod's .zip file in mods folder, so you can have it one place only, not on both.

    Official vehicles are then bit harder to start modding as they tend to have files in several places, so I would recommend start with some mod vehicle, see how it is made, what parameters are in which files. Something like changing engine parameters is quite simple way to start, but you have not given much information of what kind of modding you would like to do.

    As with everything there is learning curve and lot of failures will result, but be determined and learn from failures, eventually you will be able to make what you wish, but it is very easy to try too much at first, start small.

    For practice, make brakes stronger by 10% of your chosen vehicle, change whole gearing to be shorter by adjusting one parameter, something simple like that at first.
