NFS - Better License Plates

This mod aims to recreate the license plates from some BB Era (NFS Underground 1/2, Most Wanted) games in a higher quality using the textures available in NFS Heat.

How to create your own license plate?:

1) You can find the .psd files in the PSD folder.
2) Open any of them with Adobe Photoshop (with NVIDIA DDS Plugin installed) and change them as you want.
3) When you're done, save them in Textures folder using one of these names:
4) Use the "Custom" or "Add-On (ALL)" option while installing the mod.

You can get NVIDIA DDS Plugin for Photoshop from here:
For versions from 5.0 to CS6:
For CC versions:

@nlgxzef MostWanted_PLATES.bin contains list for all plates, right? Which tool can edit this file?

@Pluvillion You need to turn on plates in Unlimiter.

That's odd - while replacing the textures does work, the specific menu for it doesn't show up.

hi everyone, can anyone help me? I can create textures for Plates, but I don't understand how to add a place through in Binary to this. there are only 34 textures in this mod, I want to make my own mod with my own textures, for example, there will be 50 of them, please tell me how can I do this?

Very cool, it'd be great if you made these blacklist custom plates with the beta license plate model (City of Rosewood)
