W2C (World To Carbon)





W2C


by MaxHwoy
1.2.0






Description


W2C (World to Carbon) is a Need for Speed: World (2015) to Need for Speed: Carbon map port.
This port has been made using Very Secret Tool®️ (VST®️).

The port contains 3 different stream file versions, one with normal quality World textures,
one with highest quality World textures, and one with highest quality X360 Carbon and Most
Wanted textures:

1. STREAML5RA_NORMAL -> file with normal quality World 2015 textures.
2. STREAML5RA_WORLD -> file with highest quality World 2015 textures.
3. STREAML5RA_X360 -> file with highest quality X360 Carbon and Most Wanted textures.

You are free to pick any quality you'd like, although it should be noted that 2nd and 3rd
stream files intensely use RAM, sometimes exceeding game's standard 2 GB limit, which in
turn requires you to patch your executable to 4 GB (look at installation for more info).

Features


The port has quite a few extensions on top of regular map conversion, such as:
- New World Map that includes both Palmont and Rockport cities.
- New smackable and simsurface types, ported directly from World (2015).
- New effects, emitter groups, and emitter datas, all ported from World (2015).
- New emitter system page and emitter system normal map page, containing the effects.
- Traffic and encounter patterns all ported from Most Wanted (2005) and World (2015).
- New encounter targets (rival finishlines) were added to Rockport area.
- Hiding spots were all ported from Most Wanted (2005) and World (2015).

The mod worked pretty well and the instructions were easy to follow... easily one of the best mods (if not the best).

MaxHwoy, is it possible to make a minimap for the hemisphere of the Rockport map? If so, could you please clarify how?
