Nice! When the Impreza from Carbon?

trackmaniamatt (March 18, 2022 @ 18:21)
@vitor Thanks! That's much appreciated! :D
I plan to work on Binary installations for my addons over time. Stay tuned! :)

Hello, thank you for your attention, your work is very useful to the nfs community, your work should be much more recognized, I think if you opt for the binary option it would make your work easier, I think, but a user is just a suggestion.

@vitor Thanks for pointing this out. I will fix that over my spring break from college. :)
