This mod aims to rebuild vinyl texture packs (Vinyls.bin) for every single car.
Thus, we can add up to 21* vinyl slots per car.
We need to add 2 textures for each vinyl; one is the mask and the other one is the vinyl itself.

Instead of making them from zero, or using empty textures; I pre-filled the slots with Blacklist boss (1-15), hidden BMW Motorsport and cops' (GTO, Cross and Federal) vinyls; while keeping all the original vinyls from the car.

NOTE: The vinyls are completely untouched. But strangely**, some vinyls may fit the car you're using.
My aim is to rebuild the files with additional slots, instead of fixing the vinyls for every single car.

* = For cars which don't get used by Blacklist bosses. Every boss uses the car decreases this count by 1.
** = If the UV mapping is close enough.

Technical Information:

I exported all the files using NFS-TexEd (v0.9.1) by nfsu360.

After exporting the files, I saw that some names were cut after hashing. (NFSU2/MW tpk system supports up to 23 characters per name.)
So, I fixed the names according to this format:

Vinyl Itself >>
Vinyl Mask >>

CARNAME must be replaced with the car you want to use.
VINYLNAME is the texture name, which can be seen in the name section in Debug Car Customize, while tuning VINYL_LAYER0 slot.

You can also use the provided "NFSMW Vinyl Texture Names.txt" file in the archive, to see all possible 155 vinyl names.

And I used a special version of NFSU2/MW Texture Compiler from NFSU2 Mod Tools by nfsu360; modified by ASC, to rebuild the vinyl texture pack.

! New vinyls are only accessible in Debug Car Customize* and Special Vinyl Category**.

* = Debug Car Customize can be enabled via HEX editing or NFSMW Extra Options.
** = To enable this category on your Vinyl menu, you need to use NFSMW Extra Options.

1) Extract the archive anywhere.
2) Select CARS folder in it.
3) Copy it into your NFSMW Installation Folder. (Use Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V / Cmd+C, Cmd+V / Strg+C, Strg+V; Right-Click > Copy; via xcopy command on CMD; or how do you like it.)
4) Confirm if a file replacement dialog appears. (Select "Yes to All" or "Yes" every time it appears.)
5) Run NFSMW.
6) Enjoy your new vinyls.


Applying vinyl mods using these new files:

+ You can use NFS-TexEd (v0.9.1) by nfsu360 to replace any vinyl to apply a vinyl mod.
Unfortunately, v1.0b version of NFS-TexEd crashes when you try to open recompiled vinyl texture packs.
