So...since i got a pm or a whining kid bragging about online compatible mods every day..
1. You should NEVER use mods on public servers.
Makes no sense, no one will see that you have a modded vehicle, and in exchange,you will see the actual mod with bunch of weird looking skins that doesn`t fit.
2. Using mods on private servers
In case you want to have some fun with your buddies, every single mod works,even tweaks,rims and so on.
All you have to do is:
-Every member in that server,must have the exact same car mod installed. (on every platform, XR,RB,FZ etc)
-After server creation, type this in the lobby (simply using the chat) /modified=yes
In case of using tweaks.
-I suggest using NTO to start understanding the mechanism of all this.
-Everybody MUST have the exact same numbers typed into their NTO (or actually whatever tweak you are using, I use NTO as an example)
In case somebody wants to go less HP or less steerlock, you can always tone it down in the garage. Intake restriction and Steerlock degree, you can just tone it as you wish. BUT as I said before, everybody has to have the exact same numbers/tire sizes/engine size/ squares checked in.
-Everybody must use the exact same version of NTO and LFS
- If you are using NTO, you must have [NTO] in your server name, otherwise it won`t work online.
If you are confortable with your game buddies how to make all this fuzz about playing online with mods and proper engine setups. You can combine them so everybody has their own engine type, perhaps different wheelbase length.
It is a bit tricky. Let`s say there are 2 people in the server. You and your friend.
-Everybody enters spectator mode.
-Everybody loads in the exact same tweak setups.
-First person exits the pits, stays with the settings that was in the tweak.
-Second person wants a different engine.
-Both of you load in his tweak setup ( when changing NTO settings , sometimes you have to uncheck then check again every small square in order to activate)
-Second player exits the pits,
The bad part is, that only the last player can enter inside the garage from now on. If player nr1 enters the garage, his vehicle will have the exact same setup as player nr2, since you loaded his tweak setup last.
Driftmods do not agree with the usage of mods on public servers.
Use them on private servers with your gang.
