    We've had a shuffle round, which is why this thread has suddenly shot up to 62 pages! All previous exterior threads have been merged and updates will be posted in the first relevant post (1 -> 5). This was a serious attempt to make it better for you members to be able to find updates easily. The thread title will contain the latest update making it even easier to see new ones. How kind are we?!

    **********

    In this series of threads, I'm listing and giving tutorials on how to improve your game-play. These are not instructions, or officially related to Atari in any way. They are tutorials created by me, for the sole purpose of giving you the chance to improve your gameplay.

    I take no responsibility in your game going corupt or damaged. I cannot be help responsible for damages to game files or profiles.
    However this is highly unlikely to happen

    Anyway, on with the tutorial of Car Body Mods ...

    Make sure you back up everything, unless you want to have to reinstall TDU when you decide the car body modifications doesn't look as good.

    Car Body Swaps (painting unpaintable cars):

    Make sure you back up everything, unless you want to have to reinstall TDU when you decide the paint doesn't look good.

    Importnant Note
    The file you're COPYING, cannot be bigger in file size, only exactly the same or smaller.

    For example, if you want to get a Maserati MC12 with the colour of your Gallardo SE, you have to go to
    'C:\Program Files\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\Vehicules' Step 1
    Back-up the 'Gall_SE.bnk' and then delete the original file

    Step 2
    Right click the 'Mas_MC12.bnk' file and click Copy

    Step 3
    Paste the 'Mas_MC12.bnk' file into the same folder and rename it to Gall_SE.bnk

    Start the game and see your swap. If it doesn't work or crashes the game, put your backed up Gall_SE.bnk file into the C:/Program Files/Atari/Test Drive Unlimited/Euro/BNK/Vehicules directory. If the computer asks you if you want to replace the files, click Yes. That will make your Gallardo look like a Gallardo again.

    Thanks to HappyTreeFriend for the method ; desrat for alerting and Ferrari in-game picture and SLR_mates for Alfa 8C in-game picture

    Manually Changing File Colours:

    Make sure you back up everything, unless you want to have to reinstall TDU when you decide the paint doesn't look good.

    Please note that you will have to look at the in-game names for the paint, so you know which ones to change around


    You will need to make sure you have the .bnk un/repacker installed. you can find it here - [Download v.1]


    For example, if you want to get a Orange colour for your any of your Ferrari:

    Step 1

    Open the Bnk File Editor

    Click to Enlarge
    [IMGlink]http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s79/IcedBullet/Test%20Drive%20Unlimited/Mods/Bnk_1-1.jpg[/IMGlink]

    Step 2
    Click Open and navigate to C:/Program Files/Atari/Test Drive Unlimited/Euro/BNK/Database Then Open the file relevant to your play. so for me, I will open DB_US, as I play the English/american Version of TDU. If you're playing the French version/language, open the DB_FR etc.

    Step 3
    This is exactly what you should see (regardless of your version of TDU):Now, Click on 'TDU_CarColours' and then once that is selected, then on 'Extract File'

    Click to Enlarge
    [IMGlink]http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s79/IcedBullet/Test%20Drive%20Unlimited/Mods/Bnk_2-1.jpg[/IMGlink]

    Step 5
    Navigate to
    C:/Program Files/Atari/Test Drive Unlimited/Euro/BNK/Database and open the folder which has just been created. for me, it was DB_US. Inside this folder, there should be a file called 'TDU_CarColours.us'. Open this in NotePad or WordPad.

    Click to Enlarge
    [IMGlink]http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s79/IcedBullet/Test%20Drive%20Unlimited/Mods/Bnk_3-1.jpg[/IMGlink]

    Step 6
    To make the Ferraris (painted in Nero Black paint), into Orange, I will change the line '{N_F01} 54066127' to '{N_F01} 56066127' and the line '{O_01} 56066127' to '{O_01} 54066127'. In otherwords I am swapping the numbers of the and the Black Paint code over.

    Note that the 'N_F' relates to the colour Nero Black and the car manufacture Ferrari, and O stands for Orange


    [Use this Colour Chart for Colour Code References!!]

    *************
    IMPORTANT, you MUST actually swap the colours over, not just copy and replace one of them. Otherwise TDU will not start.
    *************

    Step 7
    Save this file.

    Step 8
    Back in the Bnk File Editor, select 'TDU_CarColours' and click on 'Replace File'.
    Navigate to C:/Program Files/Atari/Test Drive Unlimited/Euro/BNK/Database and open the folder where the 'TDU_CarColours.us' has been saved.

    Step 10
    Click 'Save Bnk' and now, the changes should apply when you next start TDU up.
