DRIVABLE CARS WITHOUT NIGHTLIFE
Game Add-on by Numenor (and Maxis...)
14 DEC 2009 - Updated the "Cars" archive
In order to achieve compatibility with MogHughson's "Decorative Parking Spaces", the Cars.package archive has been updated (thanks MogHughson!). If you use MogHughson's Parking Spaces, please redownload the Cars.package (Note: the updated package works fine even without the Parking Spaces, so you can redownload it anyway...).
28 NOV 2008 - Updated the "Stuff" archive
11 NOV 2008 - Added Nightlife cars + Updated the "Stuff" archive
Please redownload the "Stuff.rar, because I forgot some animations
for the "Smoogo Minima" car. And enjoy the *FIVE* Nightlife cars,
included in the "Cars.rar" archive.
IMPORTANT: GAME REQUIREMENTS
This add-on can be used by people that don't have Nightlife, but have at least ONE expansion pack or stuff pack except University.
In other words, if you have Open For Business or any *newer* EP/SP, then you can use this add-on; it works fine even if you only have one stuff pack, such as Family Fun or Celebration, etc.
Of course, if you already have Nightlife, this add-on is completely useless for you
WHAT IS THIS ADD-ON:
It allows using custom drivable cars in non-Nightlife games.
As you probably know, Maxis released some months ago a similar add-on, named "Driveway & Garage Set", that lets the player use drivable cars without Nightlife, but it only works with the Maxis cars. Therefore, I've created a special version that allows using custom-made cars, too (but read below!).
Downlaoding the "Cars.rar", you will also get the 5 cars that came with Nightlife (Hatchback, MiniVan, Sedan, PickUp and Sportscar).
HOW TO USE CUSTOM CARS IN NON-NIGHTLIFE GAMES
NOTE: of course, the modification of the car is NOT needed, if the creator stated in his thread that the car is already "Compatible with Numenor's 'Drivable Cars Without Nightlife' add-on".
CREDIT and ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
All the resources included in this add-on are by Maxis / EA Games; my job was to understand why the custom cars didn't work with the original "Garage Set" by Maxis; and then to find the needed resources in the game files, extract them and conveniently pack them into the two files attached to this post, providing the needed instruction to modify the custom cars.
Please DON'T REPOST THIS MOD ANYWHERE. People NEED to know where to ask questions and report bugs, and THIS is the only place where they can find help and support.
