High Stakes 2021
Hello, my name is Michael, in Nfscars.net "Watzel".

Thank you for the "Modern Patch" to play NFS High Stakes on Windows 10. Now i want to create an High Stakes 2021 Mod. Replace all the cars and tracks. Better textures, all car upgrades, new car sounds, real handling, damage, full career playable and more surprises. I want to use some of the best cars and tracks allready exist and some of my own cars and tracks. I hope i get all permissions. If someone has ideas or suggestions please write to me.

      Veg has prooved ANYTHING is possible if you have the know how.

      I have some ideas for this 2021 mod, NFS HighgStakes lacks alot of tracks, If possible maybe convert Test Drive 5's Moscow (I have made several Russkie cop cars) and maybe do some locales not seen before in a NFS game like Bulgaria or China, NFSFan83 has done HongKong already and it looked great.  The problem I tend to see is people tend to leave out many great locales and vehicles..Your mod looks promising. What Pursuit vehicles have you made?

      My destination is to just polish up HS in the original. I only want minimal deviations from the original.


      I don't have any police vehicles yet.


      If someone can build  very good dashboards for all cars or if they already have existing dashboards available, I would be happy

We had some holidays in my crazy country and I got a chance to play HS a little bit!) Go ahead with your project! I will try to give ideas if I have them.

      I made new textures for Gt1, Gt2, and Redrock Ridge. Rocky Pass was an unofficial unfinished track by KH. I finished it for myself. The other Tracks are allready exist, z. B. Dolphin Valley or Scotland's Castle Ruins Ver.2.

      If you can change tracks shapes maybe make some long straight flat ones out of Rocky Pass and RedRock Ridge,This would make them great for high speed driving, I always found those 2 tracks to be a bit bothersome sometimes. Also I'll see what my pal CVPI19 thinks of this project, He's been redoing the game's default Police vehicles with more modern vehicles.

      Redrock Ridge and Rocky Pass are allready done. But the mod includes one highspeed track instead of Summit. Cool, if CVPI19 has some good police textures i would use them.

      I remember getting that track from NFSCars, but I don't know if it was ever actually uploaded by its creator, who's name was '962', I think. Could very well be that he shared in a forum thread instead.


      Nice to hear from you again, by the way, always liked your mods. This project certainly has my interest, I hope you'll be able to get all the permissions sorted. :thumbsup:

      I still need permission for Martin Leps F50 high poly, F-body factions Camaro and TransAm and Venom800TT Lamborghini Diablo SV. The problem is, I can't reach any of them. Their email addresses are out of date.

    Great to see progress again.  On the F50 screenshots you can see how the modernpatch gives this streched view (wide screen) which I don't like.

      Yes still in progress :). Currently I'm a one man show, so I think the mod won't be ready until 2022.
      
      Well, better a stretched view than no NFSHS at all.

    WOOAHHH! WHAT THE!!  THIS IS INCREADABLE! 

    This is a lot changed, (well, not so much changed as much as amped up) my only question is, how are you making the original HS engine handle all this?  

    Also will this still be modifiable? ( be able to add other mods to it,) if it will be, I'd say definitely do it as stock as possible. ๐Ÿ‘

      This is possible thanks to the modern patch. Despite the lifting of the poly limit, I try to keep the polys of the cars as low as possible.

      I keep the polycount around 8000, but never more than 10000. Despite the modern patch and very good hardware, the game does not run smoothly with too many polys.
