    Bad news: it only half-works in game.

    The tool works by editing two files for the car: one that sets which class the car belongs to, and the other that controls which liveries a car has. The changes to the files that control the liveries do not seem to stick, so you get mostly the right vehicles in the group, but the number of them and the liveries selected are random, so the grid selection does not work out as defined by the user's chosen list, which is kind of the point.

    I only got an hour or so to test, so it may be that I'm missing something, but at the moment it seems like there may need to be some changes on the game side for this to work as it did, or some clever new approach that hasn't been thought of yet.
    Thank you for the update and for the effort you've put so far into this. I really hope some breakthrough can be found as this tool (& custom livery tool) were fantastic in the original title. Much appreciated
