NFS 2015 Revival Mod

IMPORTANT: This is still a very early work in progress. Anything you experience in this mod is subject to change in the next version.

What does this mod do?
It aims to provide a more balanced and less frustrating gameplay experience for NFS 2015 by making Grip more viable to use and tuning Drift to be less overpowered. In the future, I'm hoping to completely bypass customization restrictions, among other things.

How to install?
Drop the files from the Update folder into the main directory of Need For Speed 2015.
Launch the game.

**VERSIONS <0.5.0**
It should be as simple as extracting the archive to anywhere of your choice and opening the mod manager. Once it opens, navigate to the directory that you have NFS 2015 installed and select NFS16.exe. Then, select the mod and make sure it's enabled. If you have any issues with installation, let me know.

ONE LAST REMINDER that this is still an extremely early version of the mod. DO NOT expect things to work perfectly at this point or even anytime soon. That being said, please report all bugs and inquiries to me so I can work on them and use feedback to create a better mod.

Cars should handle even better now, with less steering lock-ups.
-Less speed loss in corners.
-More responsive steering.
-Scandinavian Flicks now work how they should have when the game came out, instead of confusing the physics engine and then throwing you into a wall.
-Tuning all the way for drift should actually work for some cars now.
Brake Drift Assist has now been changed to gear ratio tuning, but the name remains for now until I figure out how to change it.
Crash cams have been altered again until I can find a way to reduce the probability of triggering one.
Drifting is now viable again with most cars and should work well with the right tunes.
Removed many more customization restrictions(still working on how to get bodykits to show up as separate parts).
Most cars should have options to remove stock bumpers, hoods, and trunk lids(and some spoilers that can't normally be removed)
Improved cops, thanks to TunerzNO who tuned them much better than I was able to.

UPDATE 0.2.5:
A stopgap until the next "major" release.
Steering should feel less heavy now and wheels should lock far less than before.
Cops were tweaked again.
A few more cars are added to the "unrestricted" list: RSX after I realized that I never finished removing the restrictions, Honda Civic Type R, BMW M3 E30, Chevrolet Camaro Z28, and the Corvette Z06.

UPDATE 0.2.0:
Tweaked handling a bit, improved handling of FWD cars.
Cops may or may not be tougher now, they have minds of their own.
Multiple cars have had most of their customization restrictions removed
-"Unrestricted cars" include: Acura RSX, BMW M3 E46, Honda Civic Type R, Mazda MX-5 NA, Nissan GT-R Premium 2015, Nissan Silvia, Nissan Skyline GT-R BNR34, Nissan Skyline GT-R BNR32, and Toyota Supra. Eventually the entire car list will be capable of this.

HOTFIX 0.1.2:
Fixed some center steering issues. Cars should now feel more responsive after completely locking a turn in a direction.
A bug with the Fairlady 240ZG's suspension should be fixed now.
Tweaked the cops just a bit.

Finish removing restrictions, including the ones on bodykits.
Make the handling smoother.
Further improve cops.
Various other important unannounced things.

@ShinyStorm2004 The "Update" folder just has to be dropped in whatever folder NFS16.exe is in, unless it is a localization issue which can happen because I left the "loc" folder in the files.

My game won't start after i put those folders in the directory. Any help?

@B00tystarbanger The drifting should feel more difficult with this mod, but the main focus is making grip on par with drifting so that it is actually viable competitively. I haven't tweaked anything AI-wise, but I might do that later on.

May i ask hows the drifting with this mod. Or is this just grip focused? Is the overall Ai tweaked at all. its easy in the normal game.
Also. Is this compatible online? i was thinking about playing through the game again with a friend with this mod. Great work. with the mod. Finally this game is playable
