Great job. I didn't know there was so much depth to the mods for each vehicle. I knew some got paint jobs, etc., and others got nitrous, but nothing like that. I'm tempted to take a Walton in now just to have one absurdly decked out. Hey, maybe that's why they suddenly seem to be able to travel at insane speeds when your blasting down the freeway in a sports car.

 

Since Rockstar apparantly put so much effort into developing and programming different mods for different vehicles, it does make me wonder why couldn't they have gotten the garages to save the cars a little better?

 

Anyway, for Loco Low. I remember being able to add nitrous to the VooDoo, add hydraulics and upgrade the wheels. There was a color change option, too, but they were standard colors, not the custom paint jobs the other cars get.

speaking of indepth, the remington has a misc category for a grill option. As for the voodoo and tahoma, they are only marked for nitro... so you can have color, car stereo, wheels and hydraulics (as normal for any modible car) and then nitro. No bumpers or anything like the rest of the low riders :-\... no custom paintjobs either. ; ;.

1) Finish Driving school w/ bronze or better in each course. (Must finish "City Slicking" test)

 

2) Must finish mission: "Yay-Ka-Boom-Boom" and unlock the third island.

 

3) Get a phone call from Jetrho to buy Wangs' Cars.

 

4) Finish the first mission for the Wangs' Cars asset and Wheels Arch Angels will unlock.

does the Bass Boost do anything? What does it do? I don't see any difference when I buy it so. What does it do?

1) Need your radio equilizer option set to "On".

 

2) Need your audio set to "Pro Logic II"

 

3) Change station to RLS before modding the car, and after you pull out, you'll notice RLS' music has more base to it... stations with more talk and/or soft/ez listening will not work as well with bass boost. However, if you install bass boost and listen to RLS, Bounce FM, or another station with good bass music... you should hear the difference providing requirements #1 and #2 from above have been fufilled.

Besides the nitrous, are the modifications purely cosmetic, or do they affect the cars performance characteristics? I saw a thread where someone mentioned having preferences on how certain wheels handled, but I've never noticed a difference...Does a spoiler really create downforce? Does a new exhaust increase horespower?

I reckon I just saw the "wheel" thread you mention and I too was wondering whether buying off road wheels give you better grip. I would be very surprised if this was the case - I was under the impression that the mods were just for "looks".

Ermmm... Do you believe in bigfoot? Cause they both hold the same probability of being true.

 

There's a few files the game uses to distinguish car info.

 

handling.cfg (handling settings.. this is where the turning ratios and all handling properties are adjusted). In order for different wheels to have different handling effects, this file would have to be changed in memory, on the fly, with new handling settings. However, there's nothing that triggers this change.

 

Carmods.dat (file that holds info of car mods available). List the cars and the mods that go on them... nothing more. Only defines the mods that go on cars... there's no numbers, no variables... no alterations to performance.

 

Other than nitros (which isn't really performance boosting, it just puts you up to top speed really fast.), I would say: "No, the mods do not have performance/weight/aerodynamic benefits. It is simply cosmetic like NFS:U."

Nice work. I'll pin it for now, and unpin it when I get a chance to add it to the HTML header. smile.gif +1 Karma, etc.

I concur. Very Doubtful about mods to the handling file just cos you buy some new wheels. Would have been a good though.

 

Thanks for mentioning Bigfoot - I saw it talking to a mysterious figure in the tunnel from San Andreas to Vice City.

 

Now Im gonna start a thread about searching for Bigfoot.

uhm... no I didn't. The elegy doesn't go into TransFender.

 

 

Wheels Arch Angels:

Wheels Arch Angels is another custom shop similar to Loco Low Co. However, where as Loco Low Co specializes on lowriders out of a home garage, this is a car modification garage near the southwest corner of San Fierro. To unlock Wheels Arch Angels, you must obtain a bronze medal or better on Driving School test: "City Slicking" and also finish mission: "Yay-Ka-Boom-Boom" in order to be able to purchase Wang's Cars. After purchasing Wang's Cars, finish the first mission and you will unlock Wheels Arch Angels.

 

Cars that can be modded at Wheels Arch Angels:

Elegy

Flash

Jester

Stratum

Sultan

Uranus

 

This garage features paintjobs for Street Racer vehicles as well as high end performance parts such as: "Alien" and "X-Flow" performance exhausts and body kits.

 

See, didn't forget it. cookie.gif

Slamvan can usually be found on the strip in LV...

 

@Stew: I did enough research to figure out which equip code related to which mod part... with that info, I was able to take the info from carmods.dat and replace the equip codes with the mod's name... So after about 16-20 cars, I was able to fill in the blanks on the rest. I have no interest in doing the custom garages as the part names are all the same for all the cars, however, I did notice in Loco Low Co, you could add other parts to other cars (like remington has a misc. section for a grill) whereas Wheels Arch Angel, all the cars have the same parts, just different design.
