Boat & Duck mod?

Postby Seahawk » Thu Nov 02, 2017 7:42 am

I've seen traffic, cops, opponents, trains, trams and even seagulls being changed. But has anyone ever edited the sailboat, ferry or ducks?

As far as I know, nobody changed also those objects through a mod. Those objects file names begin all with the "giz_" prefix.

FYI, the seagulls is a new object introduced in the game with MM2 Revisited mods. They use the "sailboat" .pathset file features to move around, while the wings flapping is done though animated textures playing with the hiding and showing of each of the six wings positions (three per wing).

But if seagulls are new, then how seagulls work without replacing the sailboat?

They do replace the sailboats, they're just "sailboats" modelled as seagulls that work the same way sailboats do in the game so they can work in the game, as Franch explained
Dubai = Supercarland

When it comes to normal street driving, any car is as good as good as any other. Only the racetrack can truly separate the cars' abilities.

Because you can set a separate object for each sailboat route, so that's why you have a sailboad and a seagull together
