HOW TO ADD UP TO 40 TUNING PARTS?

QUOTE
I'm writing this tutorial as a request from Erwest. This is my first tutorial ever  blush.gif

With this "method" I was able to add 43 new parts so far, works great for me. Seems to work with added cars too, as said by gtafan113 somewhere in this post, never tested it myself.
I suggest you make a complete copy of your files before trying this, because I don't want to be responsible to any damage to your game. Ok? Do me that favour...


Let's get started, shall we?

1st - Rename your .DFF files

Let's say we're trying to add a complete bodykit that was supposed to be equipped on Elegy.

You should have
CODE

exh_a_l
fbmp_a_l
rbmp_a_l
spl_a_l_b
wg_r_a_l
wg_l_a_l


QUOTE
You don't know what this letters mean? It's easier than you think:
For example the 1ș part:

"exh" -> Exhaust part

"fbmp" -> Front Bumper

"rbmp" -> Rear Bumper

"spl" -> Spoiler

CODE
The last letter in every spoiler will be "b" or "r". This is because some spoilers will be applied on the boot (like Elegy, or the the roof (like Flash). Be careful with these ones, check which letter was on the original mod or the game will crash without you knowing why!


"a" -> Bodykit "a"

CODE
There's 2 bodykits, Alien and X-Flow, their ID's are "a" and "b", but I can't tell you for sure wich one it is  :/


"l" -> Part to be equipped on Elegy. This letters in the end are, let's say, the ID's of the tunable cars originally in the game.

CODE

This are the car "ID's"

l = Elegy
s = Sultan
st = Stratum
f = Flash
j = Jester
u = Uranus
br = Broadway
rem = Remington
bl = Blade
sv = Savanna
slv = Slamvan
t = Tornado


"wg_r" -> Right Side Skirt

"wg_l" -> Left Side Skirt


To rename your downloaded .DFF files, I suggest you do this:

CODE

exh_a_z
fbmp_a_z
rbmp_a_z
spl_a_z_b
wg_r_a_z
wg_l_a_z


Just replace the car ID letter to any other unused letter. It works for me, I already used "z", "x" and "p" smile.gif .

After this, add the files to gta3.IMG using any IMG Editor you want. Save and close

2nd - CHECK salimit.ini

Open salimit.ini file, there's a couple of things to change here...

Find this line

CODE
#CarMods=***

Erase the "#" and change the number to something like 200. Like this:
CODE
CarMods=200


Save and close.

OPTIONAL STEP (Not really necesary) - CHECK gta.DAT and organize data

Open gta.DAT and find this line
CODE
# vehicle upgrade models
IDE DATA\MAPS\veh_mods\veh_mods.IDE

Make it look like this
CODE
# vehicle upgrade models
IDE DATA\MAPS\veh_mods\veh_mods.IDE
IDE DATA\MAPS\veh_mods\veh_mods_II.IDE


QUOTE
NOTE:
-> The creation of a 2nd veh_mods.IDE file isn't REALLY necessary , the game works if you just keep adding in the original, also starting from 19600. I prefer this way, it's more organized. Your choice wink.gif


Save and close.

To complete this step, go to DATA\MAPS\veh_mods folder and create a new .IDE file and name it veh_mods_II.IDE.
In this blank file, you'll add your new tuning parts.
Like this
CODE
objs
19600, exh_a_z, "car-txd-file-name", 100, 2097152
19601, fbmp_a_z, "car-txd-file-name", 100, 2101248
19602, rbmp_a_z, "car-txd-file-name", 100, 2101248
19603, rf_a_z, "car-txd-file-name", 100, 2097152
19604, wg_l_a_z, "car-txd-file-name", 100, 2097152
19605, wg_r_a_z, "car-txd-file-name", 100, 2097152
19606, spl_a_z_b, "car-txd-file-name", 100, 2101248
end
tobj
end
path
end
2dfx
end
anim
end
txdp
end

Save and close. If you've done this step, skip the 3rd step.

As you can see, you just added 7 new parts starting from 19600. I'm already in 19643 biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

3rd - CHECK veh_mods.IDE

Open your veh_mods.IDE file. There you'll find this:

CODE
objs
1000, spl_b_mar_m, vehicle, 70, 0
1001, spl_b_bab_m, vehicle, 70, 0
1002, spl_b_bar_m, vehicle, 70, 0
(...)
1191, fbmp_lr_t1, bullet, 100, 4096
1192, rbmp_lr_t1, bullet, 100, 4096
1193, rbmp_lr_t2, bullet, 100, 4096
end
tobj
end
path
end
2dfx
end
anim
end
txdp
end


Make it look like this:

CODE
objs
1000, spl_b_mar_m, vehicle, 70, 0
1001, spl_b_bab_m, vehicle, 70, 0
1002, spl_b_bar_m, vehicle, 70, 0
(...)
1191, fbmp_lr_t1, bullet, 100, 4096
1192, rbmp_lr_t1, bullet, 100, 4096
1193, rbmp_lr_t2, bullet, 100, 4096
19600, exh_a_z, "car-txd-file-name", 100, 2097152
19601, fbmp_a_z, "car-txd-file-name", 100, 2101248
19602, rbmp_a_z, "car-txd-file-name", 100, 2101248
19603, rf_a_z, "car-txd-file-name", 100, 2097152
19604, wg_l_a_z, "car-txd-file-name", 100, 2097152
19605, wg_r_a_z, "car-txd-file-name", 100, 2097152
19606, spl_a_z_b, "car-txd-file-name", 100, 2101248
end
tobj
end
path
end
2dfx
end
anim
end
txdp
end


QUOTE
Does it sound stupid? 19600? Well, maybe... But it works, and it has a simple explanation. After a little research in all .IDE files in GTA SA, I found out that every single object has a ID number, and the game has up to 19000 objects!!!!
Let's think together: If we continue from 1193, we'll be overwriting objects, instead of adding. So, search in all your .IDE files in maps folder for the highest number, and continue adding from an even higher number. 19600 works for me just great, but if you have map mods, I suggest you look into the .IDE files wink.gif


QUOTE
NOTE:
-> Those numbers in the end of every line (100, 2101248) are'nt useless, as many may think. They ARE important, they're the draw distance value of every part. To make the parts work correctly, you need to copy the values from every Elegy's parts in the original veh_mods.IDE file to the new parts (the Elegy's exhaus draw distance value goes to your added exhaust, etc etc). PLEASE DON'T FORGET THOSE NUMBERS!!!


4th - CHECK shopping.DAT

So far, we managed to add the tuning parts to the game, so they already exist there. Now, let's make'em appear in-game. smile.gif

Open shopping.DAT and find this lines
CODE
(...)
 wheel_lr5  LRDW5  respect 0  sexy 0  1350
 stereo  STEREO  respect 0  sexy 0  100
 hydralics  HYDRAU  respect 0  sexy 0  1500

After this lines you'll add your new tuning parts. Now you have two options:

-> Copy the lines from elegy's parts and alter the car ID letter, just like you did when renaming the .DFF files. Like this:
CODE
(...)
 wheel_lr5  LRDW5  respect 0  sexy 0  1350
 stereo  STEREO  respect 0  sexy 0  100
 hydralics  HYDRAU  respect 0  sexy 0  1500
 exh_a_z   LGDAE  respect 0  sexy 0  790
 fbmp_a_z  LGDAFF  respect 0  sexy 0  990
 rbmp_a_z  LGDARF  respect 0  sexy 0  1000
 rf_a_z   LGDARV  respect 0  sexy 0  190
 spl_a_z_b    LGDAS  respect 0  sexy 0  600
 wg_l_a_z    LGDASI  respect 0  sexy 0  500


-> Instead of this, you can make your own lines. Choose the price, the values of "respect" and "sexy", and add nametags on the .GXT file with any editor you want, and write the names you want to appear in-game. Once again, your choice wink.gif

After this is done, DON'T CLOSE YET. Now that we have the parts on the shopping list, we need to make'em appear in the shops. Keep scrolling down until you find this:
CODE
section carmod1 # Normal Cars
type CarMods
 item bbb_lr_slv1
 item bbb_lr_slv2
 item bnt_b_sc_l
 item bnt_b_sc_m
 item bnt_b_sc_p_l
 item bnt_b_sc_p_m
 (...)
 item wheel_sr6
 item hydralics
 item stereo

Make it look like this:
CODE
section carmod1 # Normal Cars
type CarMods
 item bbb_lr_slv1
 item bbb_lr_slv2
 item bnt_b_sc_l
 item bnt_b_sc_m
 item bnt_b_sc_p_l
 item bnt_b_sc_p_m
 (...)
 item wheel_sr6
 item hydralics
 item stereo
 item exh_a_z
 item rf_a_z
 item fbmp_a_z
 item rbmp_a_z
 item spl_a_z_b
 item wg_l_a_z


With this done, the parts will appear in Transfender tuning shops. If you want them to appear in other shops, keep scrolling down and you'll find the other shops' respective lists.

Save and close

5th - CHECK carmods.DAT

Now, let's assign your new parts to your car biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

But before that, one LITTLE, but also HUGE detail. Once you opened the carmods.DAT file, you'll see this:
CODE

wg_l_a_z, wg_r_a_z


QUOTE
Why? Well, whenever you add Side Skirt parts ("wg_r" and "wg_l") make sure you add a line here with their respective references, or else, you'll face bugs like Side Skirts only appearing in one side of the car suicidal.gif   suicidal.gif


Now, find your car, and just add the parts colgate.gif colgate.gif . Like this:
CODE
"carname", nto_b_l, nto_b_s, nto_b_tw, exh_a_z, spl_a_z_b, fbmp_a_z, rbmp_a_z, rf_a_z, wg_l_a_z


Save and close.

QUOTE
NOTE:
-> When assigning Side Skirts to cars, write only the left one wink.gif

It's OK, but I'd fix two things:

1. Why create a 2nd veh_mods file? And if you really need to create it (you don't, though) it's better to not have spaces in the file, so name it veh_mods_II.ide, or something.

2. Adjusted limit is way too high, it has no sense (SALA allocates memory for it, so you'll waste alot of RAM).

1. I use a 2nd file just to be more organized. But as I said there, it's an option. I'll put that in larger letters

2. I'll fix that too, thanks. My mistake. I wrote this like 3 times... My browser crashed and then my PC went off and I needed to start all over again suicidal.gif ... I must have mixed the ideas.

Thanks for the evaluation colgate.gif colgate.gif

I don't know why there's only one part showing... Try using only ONE letter in the car ID, you're using three ("bmw")... And then tell me something

Thanks biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

You should check the .IDE files in the data\maps folder... Every .IDE file you find there, will be a part of the list of objects existing in the game.

And as many tutorials I saw on the internet before "learning" this by myself, after LOTS of game crashes, those tutorials say to continue from 1193, what they DON'T know, is that they're overwriting objects, causing game crashes...

It's not "fatal" to the game installing new parts without checking this first, 19600 is a "safe number" ,let's call it that.

It's more like a security measure. And if you have map mods installed, I REALLY suggest you check your .IDE files.

Hey guys. Is there a way to add like the car colors 2 like you would see with the Banshee or Bullet because I have a 2 color car mod replacing the buffalo which is a one color one. I want to be able to change the second color. Do I do this through veh_mods file?

To configure car colours, you need to open the file carcols.DAT

There you can add, change and assign colours to every car in the game.
For example:

banshee 0,1, 20,21, 43,50

Let's focus here: 0,1

"0"
Primary colour: Normaly, changes the car colour
"1"
Secondary colour: In some cars, this can change the colour of the seats, colour of stripes the car has, etc etc.
Depends on the model.

Another thing: If you write "0,1" right after the car name, it means the car will show on the streets with that set of colours more often than with the other colours.

I believe there are tutorials about configuring carcols.DAT in this forum. Go check it out if this isn't enough wink.gif

I think Andromeda means, how to "unlock" the secondary car color option in tuning shops. As it's only applied on some specific vehicles, but it has to be applied somehow, yet unknown way...

I completely misunderstood him, sorry confused.gif

And what do you mean by "unlock the secondary colour" ? Never heard that one before...

Again, sorry about that...

Yes, I know, it hasn't been yet done.

But, you know for example Banshee has primary and secondary color options in TransFenders? He means, that for example Buffalo can have also those two colors buyable.


But afaik, not done yet, and it sucks sad.gif

Hi Edward_FFS, may I know what version of SALA are you using? I'm on 7.5 and it crashes when I remove # from CarMods=*** when the game is loading.

CODE
[CREDITS]
Made By=Sacky
Version=Alpha 9


This is on the bottom of my salimits.INI file... But I believe that's version 8, not sure confused.gif

And yes, I tried to use version 7.5 in a desperate attempt to use multiple d3d9.DLL files, but It crashes, so, try it out with version 8 and it should work wink.gif

Ok cool, I'll try it out once back from office. I guess 7.5 is bugged by nature? Even when I try to increase the amount of ped models in 7.5, it gives me errors. Hopefully this is solved in version 8 though tounge.gif

Indeed, it must be bugged... I used values in Carmods limit like 2000, 3500, etc, 20000, and always the same error: "Increase the Carmods value limit" lol

If it still doesn't work, tell me wink.gif

Hi Edward_FFS,

Do you notice something? In carmods.dat after adding too many entries under the "link" section, which is where side skirts link their left and right components, other mod parts turn buggy. For example, when I try to apply spl_b_bbr_l in Transfender, it crashes my game, but when I remove all extra entries under "link", then the bug is gone. Any idea on how to solve this issue? Thanks! biggrin.gif

I only added 6 new lines in "link", that never happened to me before... Try creating a blank .DAT file, and then copy the entire carmods.DAT text to the blank file, and then replace it in the "data" folder.

MAKE A BACKUP BEFORE ALL THIS

This "method" works when my "VehicleAudioData.INI" starts bugging my sounds...

ok cool, so should I create it with a different name e.g. carmod2.dat or overwrite the same file?
