How do I add handling to an Add-On car that doesn't have a handling.meta file?



  • I have an Evo IX car mod, and it doesn't have a handling file. It just copies off the Sultan's handling.

    I was wondering how I could give it its own handling.

    I copied the Sultan's handling into a separate .meta file, then I placed it in the car's directory, replacing the text in the file with evo9 instead of sultan. I told the vehicles.meta file to get the handling id from the evo9 model, and then went into context.xml to tell it of the handling file.

    However, spawning the vehicle crashes the game. Am I missing something?



  • Did you add the XML stuff around it?

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    
    <CHandlingDataMgr>
      <HandlingData>
        <Item type="CHandlingData">
          <handlingName>SULTAN</handlingName>
          <!-- etc -->
        </Item>
      </HandlingData>
    </CHandlingDataMgr>
    


  • It SHOULD have it. I'll get back to you on that.



  • @ikt Here's what I got.

  • @mrwallace888
    Post your 'handling.meta', 'vehicles.meta' & 'content.xml' here using (3 separate) codeblocks.
    Thanks :thumbsup: (it's easier to check than screenshot).

    How to post a codeblock:

    ```xml
    Copy these three lines to txt file etc, overwrite only this line with meta data, copy all & post into forum post.
    ```

  • @mrwallace888
    Cheers :thumbsup:

    'handling.meta' & 'vehicles.meta':
    Do you have:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    

    at the top of both your 'handling.meta' & 'vehicles.meta'? (it's missing in what you posted)
    If not, paste it at the very top, save the files & install :thumbsup:

    @ikt did post that, but you might have missed it etc.

    'content.xml':
    Also, you're missing the 'handling.meta' line in the '<filesToEnable>' section in 'content.xml':

    That section should look like this:

    	<Item>
    	  <changeSetName>evo9_AUTOGEN</changeSetName>
    	  <filesToDisable />
    	  <filesToEnable>
            <Item>dlc_evo9:/data/vehicles.meta</Item>
            <Item>dlc_evo9:/data/carcols.meta</Item>
            <Item>dlc_evo9:/data/carvariations.meta</Item>
            <Item>dlc_evo9:/data/dlctext.meta</Item>
            <Item>dlc_evo9:/data/handling.meta</Item> <!-- this line was missing -->
            <Item>dlc_evo9:/%PLATFORM%/vehicles.rpf</Item>
            <Item>dlc_evo9:/%PLATFORM%/vehiclemods/evo9_mods.rpf</Item>
    	  </filesToEnable>
    	  <txdToLoad />
    	  <txdToUnload />
    	  <residentResources />
    	  <unregisterResources />
    	</Item>
    

    Hopefully, that does it, but let us know if you're still having issues after fixing those :thumbsup:



  • Did select all and copy-pasted the code so IDK why the top bit didn't show up. But it's in there. I'll test it out after putting the content.xml line in.
