NFSMW Leftover Brakes Fix


NFS Most Wanted
Leftover Brakes Fix


This mod aims to restore the custom brakes leftover from NFS Underground 2 with all their glory.
Available brakes are:

- Underground 2 Style 0: Gray calipers, normal rotors.
- Underground 2 Style 1: Painted calipers, cross-drilled rotors.
- Underground 2 Style 2: Painted calipers, cross-drilled bigger rotors.
- Underground 2 Style 3: Painted calipers and hubs, cross-drilled and slotted golden rotors.


Changes made by this mod:

- Moved the meshes to fix the positioning.

- GlobalTextures.tpk:
- CarPart:
--- BRAKES: Added LANGUAGEHASH attributes for new strings. Changed slot ID from "BRAKE" to "FRONT_BRAKE".
- SlotTypes:
--- FRONT/REAR_BRAKE: Added "BRAKES" as the main slot override, so the parts from there can be installed, along with the parts included with the cars.

- Added strings: PN_BRAKES_0-3


Known Issues:

- Nothing so far.
- Please report if you see any other issues.

can i use this mod in my modpack?

It just works, and it's awesome. I love how it takes the color of the body paint too. Even works right away if you add-on cars after the fact.

Is it possible to make them change as you tune the actual brake upgrades like in NFSU? I had special interest in making performance upgrades change actual parts in the car like engines and brake
