NFSC HD Vinyls [v3.0]

These textures have not been upscaled with AI or filtered through Photoshop. These are the original vector vinyls rendered in 4096 resolution. The remaining raster vinyls were either replaced with 4096 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.

Always backup your files before replacing them.

Q: What are "vector" vinyls?
A: These are textures that are rendered in real-time. They're mostly used for player-made vinyls.

Q: What are "raster" vinyls?
A: These are textures that have been pre-rendered. They're mostly used for crew members and vehicles featured in the Challenge Series events.

Q: Why does the game lag when loading vinyls?
A: This typically occurs for more complex vinyls because of the amount of time it takes to render them. Try using a lower vector resolution, such as 2048 or 1024.

Q: What does NFSCHDVinyls.asi do?
A: It expands the necessary memory pools for HD Vinyls. This should be compatible with NFSC Unlimiter and NFSC Limit Adjuster, but I can't make any guarantees.

@JoseNFS I would recommend to use binary to search ingame files since it has way more tools. Also you can see actual render resolution instead of texture resolution.
Its a bit harder to use but here is a quick guide to accomplish this.
1. Start Binary in Modder mode
2. create new launcher
3. open the created launcher with a texteditor (notepad+)
4. add the path of the file you want to edit to the Files section (you can see how the path format has to be there)
5. safe
6. reload or reopen file in binary

@Erce why not

@JoseNFS Stop using TexEd.

This mod works but it doesn't show up any high resolution vinyls I just checked the precomvinyls using nfs texted could ya fix this thanks

ok, I came to a conclusion (and yes my mods are all in order), this version 3.0 doesn't work with mod texmod, and I'm using APEX graphics, I only managed with the old versions of this vinyl mod along with the graphic mod, because with the 3.0 my game closes itself when I enter the career mode, and I tested the other vinyls not only the 4k, and the same thing happened, but with the NFSC HD Vinyls v2.1 it was what worked for me.
