    So it should be documents/Beamng.drive/mods? Not under the steam directory?

    still not working, still no car showing up. I wish the thread maker would put pictures so people could follow along easier. Or maybe he didnt do a good job explaining, which is looking to be the case.

    This may sound stupid but how do I open the text editor? I am very unexperienced at stuff like this but I would like to change some of the cars' horsepower.

    Is there any way to make your tires sturdier, so they are less likely to pop?

    In the tire jbeam there is a value called "MaxPressurePSI" I believe adding to that will make them sturdier

    Hey great post! I have a question, when ever I try to edit the game file while that game is open and running and I make a change and save it, in WINRAR it'll ask to update the zip file but it can't because the file is currently being used. I'm not new to this but i'm guessing you have to close the game and then make the changes to the file and then reopen the game? or is there something I've missed? I have tried using both notepad and Notepad++ and get the same thing, and even resetting my vehicle won't apply the changes.

    The game doesn't reload zips on the fly it has to be unpacked for them to be reloaded while the game is open. (using control+r).

    Example

    C:\Users\yourname\Documents\BeamNG.drive\mods\unpacked

    modname.zip (modname.zip is not a zip its a folder with the .zip file extension)

    for this example is going be named (pickup_test.zip).

    so the final path will be.

    C:\Users\yourname\Documents\BeamNG.drive\mods\unpacked\pickup_test.zip\vehicles\pickup_test

    and the file you want to edit should be placed in here.

    Ok back again..... this time I'm trying to add the Stage 2 Supercharger from the Barstow as a select-able intake on the burnside... and I did follow the steps the best I could but I can't get it to work. Could somebody lead me through this or make an engine that i can just copy and replace?

    What about adding a TCS? (Traction Control) or ESC? (Electronic Stability Control) to... let's say Grand Marshal?

    This thread is old and most likely does not work for the latest version of BeamNG. Don't reply to old, dead threads.

    Hi

    I know this post is rather old, but I've just added the rear differential to the covet following this tutorial (had to fix up some formatting).

    Nevertheless, it works. But I would like to ask, how to change the suspension movement (weight transfer?)? With the rear diff on the covet, the rear portion of the car move upwards under acceleration. I suspect this is caused by using front diff codes?

    As the front portion should move upwards under acceleration and rear should be compressing (moving downwards)?

    Thanks

    1. I am trying to change the engine torque, and the wheel grip, but whenever i change it through notepad, save and reload in beamng then there are zero changes... Also its the same when I try and add a new part.
    2. Is this type of modification of the game outdated? it seems like you guys are doing this on an old version of BeamNG.
