NFS3 CARP Generator by AJ_Lethal


A spreadsheet tool that can help you to generate a CARP.txt file from scratch.





-LibreOffice 7.x or later

-MS Excel 2019 or later




-Open either the MS Excel version (.xltx) or the OpenDocument version (.ots)

-There's also a macro-enhanced version of the OpenDocument version (works only on LibreOffice), allowing automated CARP importing and exporting; make sure to allow macro execution in your LibreOffice options. It's labeled a beta because of a couple of bugs (namely imports can't be undone, however you can use the Clear Fields button to reset all fields), but it should work fine.

-Fill in the required data in the Main sheet

-If you need to find info on your car's performance there are a couple of places that could be useful for data, such as:

-Car magazines

-The manufacturer websites

-if everything else fails, pray to Saint Google

-You can also use CarTest to obtain stuff such as acceleration times, torque curve, etc. from car data as well. You can get here at:




-Since it's a DOS program you might need DOSBox to run it

-You can also import (most) of the data from an existing CARP.txt file. Just open the existing CARP with a text editor, copy the contents and paste it column A of the CARP Import sheet. Choose "comma" as separator as prompted.

-The imported CARP data will appear in the Imported CARP Values sheet, you have to copy and paste the data into the Main sheet from there

-Some steering values, opponent data and g-transfer factor won't be imported.

-There's also a FEDATA compare data calculator, it's not 100% accurate but it's close enough.

-When you're done go to the Generated CARP sheet, select the A column and copy it. Then paste it in Notepad and save it as CARP.txt; from there you can import in your car.viv file with NFS Wizard or any other VIV utility.

-Since the files are in template formats you can save your CARP setups separately.



-Justin "IH8COPS" Martin, Rudy & Sara (RDP), Mitch Larsen, rata536 and pete9516 for their research on CARP.txt data that was used as the basis for the calculations and tool tips present in the file.

-pete9516 for his opponent acceleration table tutorial ( which I used as the base for the opponent acceleration calculation.
