Hi, looks like there is a little thing at the start of the line that should not be there:

- cavalcade, cavalcade, car, CAVCADE, CAVCADE, VEH@STD, VEH@STD_LO1_LO1, 100, 999, 0.3211, 0.3211, 0, 2, 1.2 ,0, ext_taxi+ext_requi

I downloaded the mod and checked the readme and it is in there too. I am not familiar with the mod installer you mention but it may have picked this up.


Second question:
QUOTE

The answer of course is yes you can if you really want to, but you probably shouldn't if you want to play the missions or multiplayer or basically do anything except just drive around by yourself. Sometimes in certain situations you need to have a four door car at a certain time.

Anyways, good luck. have fun modding.

problem fixed , thanks smile.gif . ok , i won't melt white cabbages and carrots then . i use GTA IV vehicle mod installer as it is very easy to use and you can go back easily in case you messed up or you encounter some problems . as if some mods are simply fantastic , some are polygon fat too and can cause game crashes confused.gif . Thanks smile.gif

just hopping there are answers somewhere   confused.gif    smile.gif   . somebody knows where i can find a vehicles.ide file values explained . i found this but seems concerning GTA IV the explanation isn't complete  confused.gif . and i have a problem i have the feet coming outside the car when i install normal car on 4x4 , and i would also like to remove the flame exaust on some cars .

ok , i searched and found few answers by myself .

- for the "feet outside" bug . it refers to the cars animations . depending of the car type you install the animations concerning the pilot position or the way you'll broke the glass aren't the same , depending of if it is a 4x4 type or a low sport car . so it is simple if you install a 4x4 search for a 4x4 values (in the vehicles.ide) and copy/paste its animation . if the car is a sport's car search for an equivalent for example the coquette . example : cavalcade : VEH@VAN, NULL, , coquette : VEH@LOW, VEH@LOW_HI4_HI4, . what these animations correspond to exactly , i don't know . i could try them one by one but as i have quite a nice workload right now between installing mods , editing the handling and changing the colors , i didn't do it

- for the boats increasing power , you need to have GTA handling editor (http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=385566&view=findpost&p=1058782300) . when you have selected your boat , you'll see there's a boat button . the AqPlaneWfMulti correspond to the boat power . enter your value and save

- for adding a flame to the exaust(s) , i didn't find any viable solution . there's a tweak around but if you use it it'll modify the car's name too , which in my opinion isn't very nice

- for editing the rear views cameras i'm still searching , same as above i found few solutions but it isn't great , the camera moves a lot . i tried to copy/paste large vehicles values which are seen from a higher position to smaller cars in the vehoff.csv but it doesn't work . seems the vehoff.csv concerns the cinematic cams only
