This was still missing from NFSCars: a place to put tutorials, reviews and articles relating to NFS. So here it is :)
The first article posted is written by Razzle Dazzle - it explains how to make the size of the car.viv smaller and is quite useful for cardesigners.
Conscars1 was so friendly to send me a tutorial that he wrote. It explains how to edit/make cars for NFS3. Very useful stuff to read!
Have you written an article, tutorial or review related to any of the Need For Speed parts and you would like to see it posted here? Email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be reviewed and posted here if good enough!
AddictArts has been trying to crack the NFS5 file formats for a while, but unfortunately he didnt succeed 100%, as the they are much more complicated than the NFS3/4 file formats. He now put the (incomplete) descriptions online on his website at http://addictarts.nfscheats.com in the NFS5 Files area. If you know your way around cracking file formats or things like that, you are free to try! If it is cracked 100%, it would mean that people can start creating other cars than Porsches for the game!
Good luck :)
well i had a virus on my computer about 2 days ago.And it deleted quite a lot of my files.
So if you want to avoid that happining to you download a virus checker,dont open any attachments that come through emails unless you can trust that person.Dont open any exe files downloaded unless you checked it for viruses first.Thats about it.
You can get an evaluation version of a very good vius checker HERE
also I emailed someone a lot of parts a while ago.SThere were heaps of bumpers,side skirts etc included.If you are that person please send me those parts again as the virus deleted them.
Please read the post about donations

There is again a new affiliate: NFS Parts! This site is dedicated to car tuning, offering all kinds of car parts to use.
This site is also the first affiliate to get a subforum on the NFSCars messageboard! If your site is an affiliate and you are interested in a forum also, let me know! Just send me a private message through the messageboard to me and I can set it up!
All cars made by daniLEXUS & aLEXUS have been removed from NFSCars. They used stolen cars as a base for their own cars, without even giving credit to the original maker of the cars.
I cant say this enough: If you want to use someone elses car as a base for your own car, ASK PERMISSION TO THE AUTHOR!!!
As long as you have permission AND give credit to the original author, there should be no problem!
Thanks to the people who reported this to me!
NFSCars is proud to announce that it is the very first affiliate of RacerPlanet! Offcourse eveyone knows RacerPlanet, as it is one of the biggest (if not THE biggest) networks within the NFS community, with hosted sites like NFSGarage, NFSCheats, ND4SPDWorld and NFSDesign.
Another new affiliate is Racing Central - hosted by the same RacerPlanet as mentioned above, this site has its own collection of cars, tracks and other useful stuff for the allround NFS fan :)
Important: make sure you have read the previous newspost regarding donations! Thank you :)
A lot of people may have noticed that NFSCars has had downtime regularly lately. This is because the server it resides on is having trouble handling the load, especially on peak times.
To solve this problem, my host has decided to upgrade the server to a dual CPU system, but as this is quite expensive and the ads are not paying enough to finance it, my host decided to open up a donation system:
We ask all of you who can spare some money to donate it through the paypal system. Just click on the button and follow the instructions.
Thank you all in advance!
I found out a little while ago that ice_wolf stole quite a lot of his cars.So I emailed sander and discussed it with him.
Then I removed them.From now on we will not add anymore of his cars.
And if we see anymore stolen cars we will remove them to.
So let this be a warning to all of you!! I have a post right underneath this one which you really have to read!!!
I ask you once again to be reasonable with your commenting and the cars that you upload.If you have something from a different author.. any author.. ask for permission to use it.Becouse if anyone notices it and complaints the car is gonne and none from that person will be added anymore.

Ok I see we have lots of complaints about executor with his complaints about suped up cars.And also about stolen parts or parts tooken without permission.
Please people be very reasonable with your comments and dont just complaint about a car becouse its tuned.
Try commenting like this: Hey thats a nice civic you got there.I like the main idea but i think you overdid it a bit.Maybe a smaller spoiler or something…
and not like this:oh no you ruined this beutifull car what have you done ..
or:this car sucks man look at it…
Lets try to be mature and not comment if you know what you are going to say is going to upset someone…
About the stolen parts…
Well I know there is lots of cars coming out now with stolen parts.. or maybe even the whole car is stolen.
Please people try to sort this problem out under yourselfs. dont fight just sort it out.. if your car,part was stolen get the creator to email an admin and tell him to get that person added to the credits in the description.
If you are the creator and you do not want that car on this site,Email an admin with a bit of proof and they will have it removed in no time.
I will see if i can sort something out with sander.
If you read this sander please reply to that email i sent you and i need to ask you something else aswell.
