    I'm getting the same kinda help cosmin. "I'll help beta test". Oh, you mean you want the mod early and don't want to do any of the dirty work....

    I'm surprised some of those mouthy fuckers in the digital design group haven't stepped up to help you. I was right about them, they like to talk a lot of shit about everyone else's inaccurate work, and sitting with their hands out, but when it's time to put up or shut up, ya hear crickets. Kinda the reason I never fully offered my help to you. I wanted to see what they could come up with, which it turns out a whole lot of nothing. I thought they were way more involved with helping you than I thought. But you're right about Italo, dude has some serious talent.

    Anyhow, if I wasn't balls deep in what we are doing, I'd help ya out in whatever capacity I could. Maybe down the road we can all put something together. I'd like that. You've always done modding the right way. Never pissing on other people work to stroke your own ego. You'll always have an immense amount of respect around here, and from me for the way you've handled yourself.

    I've always wanted to get into modding, but every-time I look at where to start, I'm overwhelmed. I also am a bit of a slow learner, who needs constant correction and asks a lot of questions. ADHD does me no favors in being able to focus on one task for a long period of time, and a low frustration tolerance and perfectionist streak makes self teaching a bit of a chore.

    The most I've modded or edited was converting rFactor cars from NSR and NT2004.

    @sro_cosmin Hey bud, how come you never told me you hated doing textures? My favorite thing to do after doing modeling and damage modeling. Is creating the textures for my cockpits. I know you've seen some of my mods over the years. Hit me up, I'll be happy to create some awesome textures of any kind for you in the future. You know where to find me.

    I just wanna chime in real quick and show some appreciation to the hard work the guys at Splash n' Go do. When I first joined your guys' Discord server and saw the multiple mods you guys were working on all at the same time, it was absolutely mind blowing. I totally understand feeling burnt out and unappreciated. I can't tell you the number of comments I've gotten on my YouTube channel bugging me about my next stop motion race when the last one hasn't even been out a week lol. I appreciate the hell out of the hard work you guys do, and I can guarantee a good portion of the community won't be upset about a hiatus considering you guys have rolled out half a dozen mods in 3 years

    I agree with the above statement, you have done more than I could ever do with this game, and you deserve a break. I have and always will have utmost respect for you all, making my dreams come true, and being open and friendly to all. We will still be here when you get back, enjoy yourself Cosmin, 6 mods in 3-4 years is a lot of work, and you need to take time for yourself too ;)

    when's the next stop motion race? I agree. They do a hell of a job for the NR community.

    I feel like @DaveO @MattyO and @sro_cosmin getting together to lead a modding group would bring back the glory days of PWF completely changing the face of NR forever.

    Either they would create the best thing ever, or the very seemingly different personalities the three guys have will create the largest nr2003 shitshow in years :p

    Jokes aside, You've killed it this year, Cosmin. HMU if Splash and Go ever needs help with hosting costs. I have zero time in my life to learn anything nr2003 wise, and barely any to play it even, but I *can* throw money at the best people in the community at least. ;)

    If that were to happen, add the name @Smoke OR to it. He does some kick ass quality work too! :)

    You would be wasting your time because once you release the mod they can easily get um right back out.

    If you think about it, nobody was ever to get the 2006 models from the NNC06 update because there were no 3d files. Once the 3do is created it's a hot mess and can't be exported properly. Closest you can get is 3dsimed and when you export something with that it's a hot mess in one mesh. Can't undo that. So, technically, it is worth it if we don't release a .max 3d scene file.

    All the parts can be extracted. The tools are right there with the mod files. Takes a bit of time and hundreds of files to sift through but certainly is possible. As to the 3do file opening up in 3dsimed you're right it pulls it as all one mesh but, there are programs that can separate those parts...... We released a viewer with one of the truck mods but it just wasn't worth all the extra effort. Bottom line is as you are finding out that there are people that will take, take, take, no matter what. It use to bother me but hell you learn to deal with it. Still doesn't feel any better to see what you spent countless hours on used in ways not intended. I've felt your pain quite a while now...........

    Oh and we did have the 06 files out they just weren't spread around...........

    Ok, so here's what i had last on the stream.
    Test it out, give suggestions in this thread. drop the file in the mods root folder.
    Rename file to make_a_cts for the cts version if that's what you're using.
    It froze my computer twice doing it live, so next edits i'll do offline. NR2003_graphics 2019-03-30 23-05-35-57.jpg
