Repurposed the Sponsor Cars section by adding several new presets (mostly from NFSU1) to GLOBALB.lzc and enabling certain vanilla presets to be used in Quick Race Mode in Sponsor Cars section (with seven sets of 12 presets each that can be used in the Sponsor Cars section).
Read the Sponsor Cars readme for more information on how this mod's Sponsor Cars section works, as well as the full list of usable presets.
Some notable presets that were added include NFSU Character cars (including entire Eastsiders Crew), NFSU EA Trax Artist Cars, NFSU1 PC Demo 350Zs, Player's 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec (R34), Sha_Do 2003 Nissan 350Z (Z33) and one 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII (CT9A) from PS2 Demo.
Because of the 12-car limit in Sponsor Cars section, all existing Sponsor Cars have been disabled from being usable in the Sponsor Cars section.
Also, if you have the Better License Plates mod, you can install an extra script that changes all presets to use named license plates (Some UG1 presets instead use UNDRGRND plate number).
Cars supported for add-on vinyls:
All NFSU cars returning in NFSU2.
Some vinyls have been added for the following NFSU2 cars (Note: These cars do not receive the UG1 vinyls):

To install the mod, just use Binary and select the Install NFSU2 Customization Plus.end. This will backup all your VINYLS.bin files before replacing it with the mod's VINYLS.bin files, then imports the new DBModelParts.bin files, and adds the new sponsor cars.
Samantha's Civic's spoiler (SPOILER_STYLE18) was the Grifter lip spoiler in UG1, It was overriden by the Specter (aka Slingshot in MW05). This Samantha Preset instead uses SPOILER_STYLE05 aka Flyte in UG1, Rocker 5 in UG2, or Tuner Barracuda in MW05, which is the closest spoiler to the original
Eddie, Melissa and Samantha's presets have multiple variations in UG1 (eg. EDDIE_SKYLINE was for the AI variant, EDDIE_PRESET was for the one you unlocked with style points, while FE_SKYLINE was for the Skyline that appeared in the main menu)
Therefore, the Eddie, Melissa (350Z) and Samantha presets are just called EDDIE, MELISSA and SAMANTHA.
Most UG1 unique vinyls have names coming from PSP NFS games, such as CUSTOM7 being named Afterburner in NFS Carbon: Own the City.
UG1 presets that used spoilers Duotek, Carbon-X or Supernova use the UG2 counterpart's carbon fiber variant.
It is required to use UnlockAllThings to enable the mod-exclusive Sponsor Cars, as the cheat codes for Sponsor Cars are for the original Sponsor Cars in the vanilla game.
! This mod is also compatible without NFSU2 Olympic Imports. However, your game will crash if you enable Chad's S2000, Todd's Lancer and the Vortex Integra and scroll to these cars, as these cars did not appear in the vanilla game.
! If your game is set to a non-English language, you may encounter default string errors on certain neon/light bulbs/hood vinyls/body vinyls/window tints.

speedforneed (April 08, 2021 @ 00:59)also the uninstaller didn't seem to remove the added neons and lights. good thing i always backup my files. a version with just the neons and lights would be cool. i only uninstalled it because i didn't like the new vinyl
speedforneed (April 07, 2021 @ 23:48)really should explain what "Binary" is, where to get it, and that its a NFS tool. I'm used to compiled executables being called a "binary" so i was looking through the zip file for an installer and was really confused... I had to google and google and finally i searched "Binary NFS mods" and found out that its a tool specific to modding NFS games.
Fred (April 06, 2021 @ 07:47)expensive dude, now when you are going to release a version 3, some bonus carbon car vinyls were missing, like from the bosses bushido, wolf and ange and darius (you could easily use the Audi tt as a replacement car since it has a body kit in the game q leaves a lot like an r8), some of the black list was missing as well, and the vinyls of the dodge neon, charger and acura nsx were missing, since nlgzrgn didn’t make any of the cars in the olympic imports package.
RKBDI (April 05, 2021 @ 18:07)Extracted some textures from Underground protos and they have some issues like car textures on them and background. But they might be useful for this project so i'll leave them here https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vQmOQGcIze08CMtcXka686DyGUTIsqjT/view?usp=sharing
Video with some of these
KylaAngelineKZYeng (April 03, 2021 @ 13:35)@mrvideogame, Lancer ES (not Evo 8), Integra and S2K are part of Olympic Imports, Corsa is an EU-exclusive car.
