Making an amazing stunt car!, [Notepad | GTA VC + 3]
Here is my tut on how to make the cars in GTAIII, And vice city excellent for stunts! They can hardly flip (well still can) but much harder and about 95% of the time it won't flip at all.
Firstly, all you need to do is to use Notepad to do this. Be warned, getting it very perfect can take lots of time, so take your time with it!
Now with that over, lets start.
Go to your GTAIII, VC Folder, which ever one you will be doing. It is located at C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTAIII (Replace the GTAIII with Grand Theft Auto Vice City for vice city.
Open up the folder, and make a backup folder. This is just incase you mess up a handling line, and if you don't backup, then you will have to reinstall to get orginal files back to normal! After making the backup folder, make a folder inside called "Orginal Handling.cfg or similar, so you know what it is. Now in your GTAIII/Vice folder, there is a folder called 'Data'. Open it.
There is a file called handling.cfg. Copy it, and paste it into the backup folder.
Now open up handling.cfg with Notepad, and find the car you would like to edit and make hardly flip. In this case i am doing the infernus.
The part to edit is called (H) CentreOfMass.z. This is the one to edit.
Above the cars lines, there is a line like this.
|A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z AA AB AC AD |
The part that is centre of mass.z is H. Go to your cars handling line, and go along, until you get to H. There should be numbers in the line like this.
-0.30 0.25, etc.
You need to set it very low, (higher will make cars flip easily, e.g: landstalker flips prettty easily, it's number is 0.25.)
For best stunting, change it to -1.00
-1.20. The car feels almost impossible to flip
If your car feels too slow, then go to the section (O), that is accleration. Set it higher. The one before accleration is top speed.Please always remember to backup your files.
Try not to set it to low. This may cause the car to spin out easily, and keep trying to jump when you hit something. About -1.10 will do.
Remember, getting it pefect may take time. Keep trying different settings with the centre of mass, around -1.00 and -1.10 should be enough to make it very hard to flip.
If the car seems to not want to roll off roof and you have set it low, then the problem may be the mass. Higher means the car can make others out the way easily. Lower means it can't very good. Setting it to 7600.0 is not good, because flipping the car over means that it is hard for it to get back over. Lowering the mass does seem to slow the car down, so set it about 1600.0.
Again, keep having a fiddle around, i'm sure after a while you should get the ultimate stunt car.
