    Title says it all. How do I convert a vehicle configuration preset from this screen:






    To be loadable on this screen? That way I can do challenges and such with my preferred vehicle setup.

    You would rename your present to the name of the present you'd like to edit. So, you'd save your 'DXi' as 'DXi'. Not super sure but I think thats true.

    You need an info.json file. Look at the way official cars have a .pc file for the configuration, and an info.json file for the configuration too.

    for example:
    car1_crazyturbo.pc (configuration itself)
    info_car1_crazyturbo.json (info.json file with configuration details)
    car1_crazyturbo.png (config pic/thumbnail

    Obviously "car1_crazyturbo" is just an example but you MUST keep the same kind of naming convention for the game to see it.

    Ahh, so basically I make a new zip file in the mods folder with the .pc configuration file, and those 2 other required files? (of course pointing to the right directory for the vehicle). I'll try that out in the morning. Will post if I have any problems. Thanks!

    If you want it for your own personal use, you can check this option:
