Add-on car for NFS III

Version :1.0

Realeasedate :around May 01.1999

Installation:

You must create an "Etro" subdirectory in your

\Gamedata\Carmodel subdirectory, and unzip the

car.viv file in there.


Unzip the 09_00.qfs loading slide file into the

\FeData\art\slides folder.


The serial number for this car is 09. If you

have another car with the same number NFS3 won't

lauch. You can change it with vivwizard. Remember

to rename the first two numbers in the 09_00.qfs

slide file to match the new number. The slide

doesn't work further from 50.

Explanation:

Originally this was an Aston Martin, then it was

the V 1.0 of my Jaguar E-type Coupe; then I sunk

the roof to make the cockpit floor, added seats,

a guy and folded tonneau cover. Now it's the

legendary Jaguar XKE (E-type) Mark I convertible

from the 1960's.

I Used the original color names, that's why they sound

so silly.

The performance data is taken from the XK8 Jag and

tweaked to resemble that of a 1967 E-cat. This is a

class C car but it's very competitive in B too.


Most annoying bugs:

-The body is still too rough.

-The windshield is too clear. (I prefer this over

a semi-trasparent that won't show the guy and seats,

anyone know why this happens?)

-Performance is a bit optimistic.

-I don't own one.


Future improvements.

-More accurate performance, whenever I find the correct

torque curve, gear ratios and such.

-Arms and legs for the guy, a shifter and steering

wheel; but don't hold your breath :)


Aknowledgements:

- Thanks to the VivWizard creator for making it much,

much easier.

- Thanks to the NFS gaming community for the cool

editors, tips and enthusiasm.

- Thanks to EA for the game and the cartool program.
