    Recently I've made a lot of BeamNG Lore-friendly vehicles in Automation (inspired by the lore-friendly car pack made by @titleguy1.) How I could put all of these vehicles into one .zip file that I could upload to the Repo?

    The file structure should be:

    mod_name.zip (or "mod_name" folder if unpacked)
    art
    (sound stuff)​
    vehicles
    vehicle1
    vehicle2
    (etc.)​

    All the files pertaining to a vehicle are contained in its respective folder.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "sound stuff".

    Engine sounds. (The folder isn't in "unpacked" because I've temporarily retired it from my game.)

    ok, I understand that this is an old thread, but do I just put all the sound folders for each respective car into a folder named art?

    Pretty much. The "blends" subfolder (see above) contains json files for the respective engine sounds, and the "engine" subfolder houses another subfolder (named, for example, 52BBA2AE4928DA1EBF7C33B8B36F7B12) with the actual sound files in it.

    To rename the engine sound, all of the following components need to be renamed:
    • the subfolder within "engine" - this defines the sample name
    • all references to the sample folder name within the json (e.g. ["art/sound/engine/52BBA2AE4928DA1EBF7C33B8B36F7B12/EXH_803.wav", 803])
    • reference to the sample name within the car's camso_engine.jbeam file
