In old readme files of addoncars you sometimes find sitenames.Found a lot but mainly deadlinks.

I remember: Powercity tuningteam , Fivespeed, Bubbachubs, Tritoch (hollandmodified), Martin Leps, BloOm..... all had their own site.

Found aussiemuscle's site on wayback.archive. you can still download cars (archived .zip files)

Thats a good advice, old readmes are a good source for sure.
I dont have anything against wayback.archive - its a very good way to surf on old websites and remember the great times of NFS  ;) ...and if youre lucky enough, they saved exactly the file you need. I just dont want to add them, because a dead site with lots of broken links is not of use to anyone.
BUT
it might be possible to add them in a way like this for a specific site:
http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.racerplanet.net/files/*
under a new section for example ???

I leave that open for discussion...  :-*

I feel embarrassed that I forgot about Memphis' site, glad that's fixed now.  :-\

There's another author's website I should've thought of sooner: AJ_Lethal's http://nfsridescr.blogspot.com/


@Remko: i like the new emoticons but some are listed twice (undecided, sad, shocked, rolleyes, cheesy, angry) - Firefox 28

Good point, that was the next thing I was going to look into.

Uhm, Remko can you check this link again. The site is keeping me redirecting to a fake java download - Norton Internet Security tells me: Web Attack PUP/Adware/ Fake Application Download (i dont want to post the exact redirection link here)  ???

edit: now its ok for me ... i think it was one of the advertisements there

Maybe it had to do with me not paying attention and blindly copy/pasting from my own url box, so ended in .nl instead of .com. ::)
I Dunno, anyway, fixed that url now.

Hey, had the problem on AJ's site again... once you click the link you get immediately redirected to a malware/adware site - seems to occur occasionally though (which doesnt make it less annoying)
...might be my pc is infected but thats the only website i experience this.
Well, the internet is an evil place  >:D
And if your not completely starry-eyed this should be a minor threat... so

nfsridescr.blogspot.com added.

It might be your PC, since Blogger does not do that kind of stuff.

Hello, sorry for late reply.
Im pretty sure its a advertisement at "Compartir/Share" thats causing this, like i assumed in one of my previous posts. Had the opportunity to test it on a friend's pc (different browser, recent AVP from Kaspersky Labs) with the same result. :o
If i abort loading the page before the add shows up everything is fine. Only thing remarkable that it only happens sometimes (infected advertisement?).

Greetings

PS: just telling facts, i know its not your intention to spread malware  ;)

Guys, guys, I think I found something... it's not a full site, it's more like that Gamefront link, a filehost with mods listed, but no author, pictures or other information, you sort have to guess or rely on your memory from way back to determine what you're downloading.
Layout is a bit confusing too, not easy to search since it keeps listing everything by date - using the search function is probably the fastest way.

The positive site is that there's 200+ pages of cars for HS, 19 pages of tracks, and 5 pages of other mods.  :o :o
It lists NFS.OnlineWelten.com as the source, so this honestly looks like a backup of everything that used to be on NFS Streetdogs before it sized down. There's downloads for other NFS game too. Definitely interesting, wouldn't you say?

Too bad... looks like they didnt saved the tools section.

This thread needs the NFS3 expansion pack website. It was a collaboration, and I provided almost all existing files from NFSGB.

It works, but looking for something and only see the name of the zip file is not easy.
