Need For Speed Carbon - Free Run Mod
Added support for Binary!
What does this mod do
In Need for Speed Underground 2, it's possible to free drive around Bayview in Quick Race, meaning that you can use your custom non-career cars and stock cars to free drive around Bayview. However, this option does not exist in Need For Speed Carbon.
As a result, it's impossible for anyone to test drive their custom non-career cars or stock cars in Quick Race mode or just have a nice time exploring Palmont or San Juan in such cars. This mod adds a special race to the list of Quick Race tracks that has no finish line or barriers.
However, it does not support other opponents (unless you use NFS Carbon Extra Options by nlgzrgn).
How does it work
Source Code: https://github.com/cyo93/NFSCFreeRunMod
Need for Speed Carbon has a gameplay file that stores every race. This file can be modified to add more races without any other executable modifications such as Unlimiter by nlgzrgn. Unfortunately, the game is hardcoded to not play the EA TRAX when playing races other than checkpoint races.
For this reason, this mod creates an empty checkpoint race with no finish line, checkpoints, barriers, and time limit, allowing anyone to drive freely around Palmont. The empty race is also marked as a Pursuit Race for a possible future update where it may support pursuits.
A script is then used to hook to the function in the game that determines the HUD features and makes it so these races do not show the timer while free driving.
1. Download NFS VLT-Ed and Binary
2. Install the "NFS Carbon Free Run Mod.nfsms" script using NFS VLT-Ed. (Go to the game directory using File->Open, after opening, click on File->Import->Modscript, and choose the modscript in the mod directory.)
3. Install the "TexturesInstall.end" file endscript using User mode in Binary.
4. If you are using an existing save file, complete a random encounter in Career mode. New users don't need to do this.
1. Pursuits do not work properly when using NFS Carbon Extra Options by nlgzrgn. Pursuit breakers and Hiding Spots do not show up on the map, the pursuit information is not shown and the pursuit theme does not properly play.
2. Other languages are not officially supported as of now.
3. For some reason, tracks initially unlocked at the beginning of the game do not get unlocked automatically for existing players.
4. This mod does not support other mods, such as the Battle Royale mod or the Endgame Mod. Support is planned for the future.
5. When enough races are unlocked, the new tracks do not show in "All Available Races". However, they do show up in the "San Juan" category as expected.

But I Guess Ill Try

I just fixed the race unlock issue. If you already have the mod installed, restore the backups of the gameplay files using NFS-VltEd and install the new modscript. If you are using an existing profile that doesn't have the free run events, all you need to do now is play a random encounter in career mode. Hope you enjoy the new free run mod!

If you have completed the bronze checkpoint challenge already, just complete it again with the existing profile after installing the mod.

Did you complete the Checkpoint Challenge bronze race in the challenge series after installing the mod? You need to do this if you are using an existing profile. Also, try pressing 1 until San Juan events are only shown. For some reason, the game does not show these events under all available races after enough races are unlocked.
