So why the wheels don't change color on the DDbus? Do you forget to put this "_" before the color's name?

The textures have exactly the same name as in MM2, so I don't think that's the problem.

Anyway, the Double-Decker Bus is released:

Very nice work, you've converted half of the cars till now. :) Keep up the good work, and consider to release a final pack with all the 10 cars in one .ar file.

The New Mini Cooper is finished, but I'm having a minor problem with the colors. I want the car to have all 9 colors from MM2 Revisited 5, and I was able to get all of them in the game, the problem is their names. Apparently, MM1 only supports 80 characters after the equal sign of the colors list on the INFO file, but the colors list on this car is longer than 80 characters, which causes this:

Image

As you can see, the last color is missing some characters and two colors are not in the list. Here is a list of all the colors:

British Racing Green
Sienna Gold
Laser Blue
Tech Silver
Gumdrop
Eden Green
Fire Red
Dolo Blue
Black

I was thinking of using these names instead:

Green
Gold
Blue
Silver
Gumdrop
Eden Green
Red
Dolo Blue
Black

Those names work perfectly. If you have other suggestions please post them here, remember that they don't have to exceed 80 characters all together (that includes the "|" which separates each color on the INFO file).

And yes Franch, I am thinking of releasing all the cars in one ar file and maybe make some modifications, as they are a few things I don't like about the DB7 and the TT.

I'm wondering if DB is having the same problem in MM1 Revisited 3 :scratchchin:

Yeah if you have to, shorten the names. Not too big of a deal I suppose.

And no, I havn't run into that issue yet... but thanks for the warning. Maybe I should stop naming colors like "Tiggy Yellow" and "Yoshi Green", lol.

Obviously MM1 vehicles have the characters limit for the colors names in the .info file, like is with MM2, but I wasn't aspecting that's even lower than MM2, 80 versus 100.
I use that solution too with my cars conversions when the colors names are too long and/or they're more than 8, that's cut out the color denomination.

Good about the final carpack making.

I'll download them all when they are done, If you need to merge all vehicles into one AR with multiple info files, I will send you my shiplist builder.

The VW New Beetle Dune also has colored wheels like the Double Decker Bus, I guess you'll have to use the regular VW New Beetle's wheels instead.

That would be great. I'll ask you for it when I need it.

I think I will do the same thing I did for the Double-Decker Bus. I don't think they will look bad since it's only the center that is colored, although the regular VW New Beetle's wheels may look nicer.

Yeah, the Dune beetle's wheels seems ... a little messy.

VW New Beetle Dune released:

http://midtowngarage.uk.pn/downloads.ph ... load_id=24

I made two versions of it, one with the wheels you see in the picture, and another one with the wheels from the regular VW New Beetle (thanks to NotoriousA for the idea). Both versions are included in the zip file.

One thing you may notice is that it doesn't have the same suspension as in MM2, which is similar to a Monster Truck, and as you may know, the Monster Truck in MM1 Trial handles horribly, this is because the physics engine in MM1 doesn't allow such handling. I still made some minor changes to the suspension in the Beetle Dune.

Keep up the good work. :) It's better have this car only with its original wheels made in grayscale, when you'll put all these cars in one .ar file. But then, why change the wheels using the ones already used in another car?

It's a matter of preference, I can see how some people may dislike the original wheels, some others may like them, that's why I included both versions. It may be unnecessary but what do I have to lose?
However, I do agree with you on the wheels that should be used in the final .ar file.
