Hello again. I might be familiar, let's skip that. If you're wandering what happened to Machine Dojo Modding Team, it kind of crashed and burned due to me. But oh well, we are here now and ready to go. I'm here as a completely fresh person and I have teamed up with two modelers to bring more cars to Project CARS 2. Now, we have a certain statement we want to raise with SMS. After trying to contact them and not receiving a reply directly or through any of the moderators (not mad, I know you guys are busy), I decided to go public with this and show what we are working on so people can be excited and hopefully change SMS's mind when it comes to modding. Right now, we can put new cars into the game. But not perfectly like we could with Project CARS 1. Right now, we cannot release any work without opening up the game to everyone who downloads it and allowing them to ability to hack, cheat and get DLC for free. We don't want this as much as SMS doesn't. So we want what we had with the first game and some communication from SMS. If you give us the same options as last time, while giving us some simple info privately, we can happily add more content to the game, without damaging DLC sales, letting people cheat and so on.

SMS, we would love to communicate with you about this and hope we can come to a happy medium.

The two cars below are being modelled by a genius named Yatsu. He started out as a stand out Trackmania 2 modder, and has moved on to creating incredible concepts and modelling cars in incrdebible detail. His own creation, the Ferrari RXX-LM (name pending) will come in two forms, a High Downforce and Low Downforce option, for either those long high speed races, or the tight and twisty circuits.

The other car, also being modelled by Yatsu, is of course, the Aston Martin Valkyrie, Aston's brand new hypercar set to destroy all road car track records. Unfortunately, due to lack of info on the car and it's physical appearance not being fully revealed yet, we will have to wait until everything sis available to us to complete the model. But it will come, don't worry.

Our other modeller, VaporOne, is modelling another car behind the scenes, and will be revealed soon. But here's a clue. IF the makers had enough cash, the F1 GTR, CLK GTR, and 911 GT1, could have had another contender.

Great to see you back! I'm looking forward seeing more of your work :)

Just let me add some of the community's top livery painters would be very happy about the possibilities Project Cars offered in its final stage. Really no-one is interested in having to open up the game to make more textures available, add multiple liveries, etc.

(I know it has been stated elsewhere before, but as this post will definitely get some attention I want to add this here as well.)

Good luck with your cause - you did great work for the first game and hope to see more for this one. Come on SMS, mods please!

There are several who need to open the code, if it has to be shared for everything, not just for a single modder.

It's an impressive work honestly, there seems to be a really good amount of details on the 3d models.

OH my god yes! I was a huge fan of your PCARS1 work, and I’m excited enough about this that I made an account! This all looks completely goddamn amazing and I’m so pumped up for it! I really hope SMS does something with regards to nodding so you won’t have to rip open the game. Also, the fact that you guys are making the Apollo makes me stupidly happy.

If SMS endorsed content, they would likely have to pay royalties/licencing fees for it. As such, i would suspect they cant comment or be at risk of liabilities for unlicenced content. Hence why you likely wont get a response here either, as acknowledgement could be taken for endorsing.

Sadly businesses protecting their IP and with games now mainstream, it is another revenue stream... the days of open modding are diminishing and i suspect will go underground.

And yes i Modded, both for RF1 and RF2 and was fortunate enough to get the OK to do most of my content from the IP owners. But its getting harder, with cease and decist letters commonplace.

We were supported for the first game, and they even helped the public use our mods in an easier way. We haven't got this for the second game

Hopefully the new P1 regulations will look like that Ferrari RXX. Very impressive.

How viable is this currently? Any news? Would LOVE to see an Opel Manta 400! Real shame that SMS didn't include it in the Group B class.

As soon as we are done with most of the Ferrari import, we will show it off.

We do private commissions for people who want particular cars in their game too. Send me a private message if you’re interested.

Is anyone working on other aspects of modding the game outside of adding cars? Adding a BoP option for classes, for instance?

I'd love to have a driver name editor for offline racing, per car livery, in each class, so the Crew Chief app can tell me: "The driver behind is Brundle" or "McNish" for example, if racing Group C or GT1.
