    Before you do anything.. Consider this.. Do you actually need to run the game in extracted mode??
    You only need to extract the game files if you intend on modifying the actual game itself. Weather that be doing rim swaps, adding new car mods (such as the lambo or bmw) or altering the files in the .BNK's ( messing with .bnk files is a whole other story, so dont worry about that right now) . If you have no intention of doing any of that, then you do not need to extract the game archives. Also you do not need to extract the archives if you are just doing sticker imports with texmod.


    Now thats out of the way.. onto the fun part


    UPDATED on 25/08/2012 to work with the DLC2 build 16 patch.


    The needed files and tools you find in the forum, and then follow the few basic instructions, to unpack the game. (maybe you add the needed links to every tool)

    Things you will need...

    - Most importantly you will need Knyazev's V2.2 extractor files.
    - You will also need Knyazev's NEW Universal Launcher V3.1. +Note Universal launcher is NOT the same as Uplauncher.exe
    - Approximately 30GB of hard drive space for the extracted files and the backup files.
    - Some free time.. It can take anywhere between 10 mins to an hour, depending how fast your computer is.
    - Crayons, paper, glue, scissors and an adult to help with the tricky cutting out.
    - patience...

    ++This tutorial has now got SUPER EASY to follow, even a monkey could follow how to extract the game now.. In fact a monkey could train his pet goat how to unpack TDU, its that easy..++ If you have any issues make sure UAC is turned off and that you run the unpacker in admin mode.


    OK now to get started.... You have 2 choices with this unpacker. Either unpack just the DLC2 updates or unpack everything..

    - 1 Download the Unpacker and the launcher from the links above, to somewhere you can remember, like your desktop.

    - 2 Extract the contents of the unpacker to your desktop, then copy all of the files to your Main TDU game folder, See fig #1

    - 3 Now run either the "unpack_full.bat" to unpack the whole game, or run the "unpack_dlc2_v031.bat" to unpack just the DLC content.

    - 4 Thats it, it should be unpacking now ( see fig 4 and 5) , give it some time ( it can take up to 30-45 minutes )

    - 5 Once finished, Extract the universal launcher to your main game folder. Start the game using that instead of Uplauncher.


    What happens when its running??? Firstly the unpacker will open a command prompt window (fig4) and start listing all the files it is extracting from the .big and .map files ( your main game archives) see (fig 2 and 3 ) As its extracting them, they will be placed in your main game folder, see (fig 5).
    Once it has finished extracting, it will rename and then move all the files to their correct folder locations. When it has finished moving all the files ( that part only takes a short amount of time) you are ready to play the game. Use the universal launcher to run the game instead of Uplauncher to avoid the auto file check.

    Have fun.. Nobby76

    Big thanks to. All the guys who worked on all the internal filenames. And Knyazev for releasing a super easy unpacker AND a new version of universal launcher... You rock dude!
    Now how to insert a mod:

    After unpacking the game correctly you will find some more subfolders in the "Euro"-folder (e. g. avatar, database, frontend...and so on...). In these folders you will find files that in most cases can be modded. The most important folder "vehicules". Here you find all ingame-cars.

    C:\...\tdu2\Euro\bnk\vehicules\

    here are 4 folders that are important

    - high (carbody)
    - interiors ("inside-life" of the cars)
    - med (make you see the same car (as yours modded one) on other player/s when drives it in game)
    - rims (selfexplaining, rims sorted by brands)

    additionally in some cases:
    C:\...\TDU2\Euro\Bnk\sound\vehicles\gtr_high.bnk (carsound, but not every package has a separate mod for the carsound)

    Example on a certain car (e. g. Nissan GT-R)

    Files of the car:

    - gtr.bnk (in the high-folder)
    - gtr_i.bnk (in the interior-folder)
    - gtr_med.bnk (in the med-folder)
    - gtr_low.bnk (in the med-folder)
    - gtr_f_01 (frontrims in the rim/nissan-folder)
    - gtr_r_01 (rearrims in the rim/nissan-folder)

    The files in the modpackage have the same names, cause it's needed for working. Only the content of the bnk-files is different (in other words modded). And the modded files have to be copied into the needed folders, that means they replace the originial files. Little advice from my side: make a savecopy of the hole "Euro"-folder, so if something gets messed up meanwhile modding, you still have all original files.

    Important is, that only the car can be replaced, which files are in the modding-package. It is possible to switch (e. g.) a nissan gt-r with a bugatti. But the car looks like crap afterwards.

    That's all folks

    Well you've found the TDU2 Mod Shop support subforum, so I presume you can find the Released Mods section
    Then just go to a thread that has a car you want
    Then click the Download link in the thread
    Then extract the compressed archive
    Then open the ReadMe file which has instructions on how to install.
