NFSC HD Vinyls [v2.0]





These textures have not been upscaled with AI or filtered through Photoshop. These are the original vector vinyls rendered in 2048 resolution. The remaining raster (precompiled) vinyls were either replaced with 2048 counterparts, or faithfully remade using vector assets. The end result gives a massive boost in quality to all vinyls used in the game.

In addition, the dummy textures for vectors were using 1-bit alpha channels. After correcting this error, some vinyls now have a visible drop shadow that previously couldn't be seen. These drop shadows are also present in the console version, so what you see is exactly what the developers intended.





HOW TO INSTALL
Always backup your files before replacing them.

1. Download Binary v2.5.5 or newer.
2. Launch Binary and select "User Mode".
3. Open INSTALL.end with Binary and follow the instructions.
4. Enjoy!

Great job as always Aero_!
Can't wait to put my PC over some bit of 'stress' with 4K liveries, heh.

@Vlad575 Hi there, I might have what you would just look for. Maybe not 2048 but a pretty significant Improvement I Might say.
