NFS Underground 2 - Unlimiter
v3.1.0.1338

Source Code: https://github.com/nlgxzef/NFSU2Unlimiter/
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Description:

NFSU2 Unlimiter is a script mod which fixes some issues and makes some improvements for added cars and events.

Features:
+ Fixes visibility and crash issues for added cars.
+ Fixes disappearing wheels issue.
+ Expands memory pools.
+ Fixes a crash issue related with world map markers.
+ Adds options to change car render information. (See UnlimiterData\_General.ini file.)
+ Fixes missing objects for options and stuff in FNGs by cloning them.
+ Allows the events to have specific engage messages in any stage. (The game did it only for Stage 0 by default.)
+ Adds new customization items to the menu. (Fully configurable via car-specific or general ini files.) (Parts should get added by modders.)
+ Restores cut customization options from the game: Trunk Audio Paint, Cabin Neon, Hood Decals, etc.
+ Lets modders add custom rim brands. (Fully configurable via ini file.)
- [RimBrands] RemoveRimSizeRestrictions: Removes the outer radius restriction to make any rim available for all cars.
- [BrandX] NoRimSize: Disables rim size checks for a specific brand.
- [BrandX] HideBrandName: Hides brand name on rim selection screen for a specific brand.
+ Allows decal dummy parts to have "NUM_DECALS" attribute to declare the number of slots.
+ Adds custom attributes to allow even more customization options: (Extra Customization needs to be enabled to make custom attributes work.)
- SHOWENGINE (Boolean) : Allows the player to see engine and neon through the hood.
- SHOWTRUNK (Boolean) : Allows the player to see trunk audio components and neon through the trunk.
- TRUNKUNDER (Key) : Sets the under part of the trunk. Works like the HOODUNDER attribute, which is available for hoods.
- NUMSLOTS (Integer) : Declares the number of component slots a Trunk Audio Layout has. If not present, the "default" hardcoded values from the game will be used.
- FRONT_TIRE_OFFSET (Floating) : Adds offset (spacers) to the front wheels. This attribute can be added to Fender and Wide Body parts.
- REAR_TIRE_OFFSET (Floating) : Adds offset (spacers) to the rear wheels. This attribute can be added to Quarter Panel and Wide Body parts.
+ Implements use of strings for AI Opponent names like later games and adds 150+ names from credits. (RACERNAME_000-999)

@nlgxzef

@NightSkye, the AI always using Corolla and not other vehicles. I notice that also on said stages.

nlgxzef, I hope you can make all unique performance parts (not only unique visual upgrades) appear on customize car screen 😁
Great work man! Much appreciated 😊😊. Continue modding this greatest game of all generation :D

Does the Unlimiter have a hard limit on add-on cars? I added a bunch of added cars, but all of them didn't appear in the game. I decided to uninstall some of the ones that did show up and the ones that didn't show up started showing up. Does that have something to do with the "unlock added cars" option or is there something wrong with my installation?
