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 several sets of 12 presets each that can be used in the Sponsor Cars section).

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), Fast and Furious cars 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).

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.
Afterwards, some pop ups would appear to decide whether you have certain mods and the choice of which cars you want to use in 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.
Certain presets based on the 2003 Nissan Fairlady Z/350Z (Z33) will be altered if you have installed the replacement version of the Extra Customization Showcase 350Z mod. This will fix the missing fenders as well as altering certain 350Z presets to have 350Z badging instead of Fairlady Z badging. Also, the presets with widebody kits will now have the wheel spacers.
! 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.
How to install:
1. Download the latest version of Binary (if you have not done it yet).
2. Extract the NFSU2 Customization Plus folder.
3. Run Binary in Administrator mode, launch it in User Mode (left) and select the Install NFSU2 Customization Plus.end endscript

5. Select the "Install NFSU2 Customization Plus" Prompt and click OK.
6. Wait for the mod to get installed, then another pop up will appear.
7. Select whether you have the Better License Plates mod or not, two options appear, Vanilla if you do not have the new plates or Better License Plates if you have the aformentioned mod.
8. Confirm if you installed the replacement version of the 2003 Nissan 350Z (Z33) Extra Customization Showcase car. This will change certain 350Z presets to fix certain parts that were altered by the Extra Customization mod.
9. Select which set of bonus preset cars you want to install. This will change the available cars in the Sponsor Cars section. Only 12 presets will be shown due to game limitations.
10. Confirm the save prompt and save the changes.
11. Quit Binary.
To uninstall this mod and revert the customization options back to vanilla state, just follow steps 1-4 again, and select Uninstall NFSU2 Customization Plus. then wait for the message that says the script was applied successfully.
Uninstalling the mod restores backed up VINYLS.BIN files, overrides the existing DBModelParts with vanilla ones, removing any add-on vinyls, decals, paints neons, window tints and light bulbs, removes add-on presets and restores original Sponsor Cars along with their original performance level and license plate.
Be careful when you uninstall the mod while your savegame has cars that are customized with the newly added parts, your customized cars will have those parts uninstalled/reverted to stock.

TestH2 (November 04, 2021 @ 11:50)You Forgot To Add Some Vinyl From UG1 Like Hood And Stripe
Usagi (September 29, 2021 @ 18:15)Fantastic mod! One question though, which mod are you using to apply regular vinyls on top of unique/art factory ones? Thanks in advance!
Zephyr4040404 (September 28, 2021 @ 06:45)@FurRoseMWCPS
I checked vinyls.bin for eclipse in tex ed, the format of that vinyl is DXT5 which is different from the rest of the vinyls and may be the reason behind crashing
Facundoj2000 (September 25, 2021 @ 05:18)@FurRoseMWCPS I have the same problem,I don't know if it's a bug or what........
RKBDI (September 17, 2021 @ 14:59)Found old cd from 2005 with nfs demos and unofficial addon vinyls.
maybe some of them can be ported to ug2?
here i extracted all dds
