I have an update of sorts releasing today for FUEL: REFUELED, a copy of the current development build for the Free Ride Extreme Editor I've been working on. I also have some news about something I'll be participating in next week and ask some of you to support where able.

Remember to keep an eye on screenshots uploaded as they often show new updates coming, such as the above which shows off 4 of the new Vista Points added in a future release.

The Update?

Free Ride Extreme Editor [Rev.11]
Free Ride Extreme Editor

Firstly the update, well a while ago I said I'd include a current copy of the where the Free Ride Extreme Editor is at (That little tool that lets you create all the custom weather scenario's you want, such as tornado's in Free Ride!). After all I'd much rather have it in your hands so you can play with it and give feedback, than sat in some folder idle here. I am currently focusing on other development tools such as the vehicle color palette and career race editor, so the Free Ride Extreme Editor is largely finished - however it needs testing - which is where you lovely people come in!

This isn't a fresh download, you will need to re-download version 2013.1 (now updated to R2.8) and there inside you will find the program "Free Ride Extreme Editor BETA". There is no formal guide for this software as it is largely unfinished - so really I would like to say I'm aiming this BETA at people somewhat familiar with the mod from past versions and competent in figuring out stuff, but my assistance is on hand to answer any questions.

Basically if you try this tool, then let me know what you think! If you had trouble figuring out how to work it then let me know, or if you encountered a bug then let me know. You can do this preferably via sending me a private message (as I'm unable to track comments and make take a while to get back to you otherwise).

So yeah, enjoy having a play around with this version of the tool - there is much more to come, but that is where the development is at. You can read more about how development has progressed with this tool here.

Extra Life 2013

This year I'll be participating in the charity event Extra Life, throwing myself into a 25 hour gaming
marathon of the game ‘Defiance' on November 2nd while part of the Trion Worlds team. I've decided I will give it my best at streaming the whole thing live - which will be quite a challenge for me, given I've actually never done much in the way of streaming, let alone anything close to this. Here's a link to my Twitch channel, so you can follow me for whenever I go live (likely I'll be doing various tests over the next few days to ensure everything goes off without issue).

- An online open-world shooter.

I'll hopefully be backed up from a mix of friends from Omni Venatus, who may think I'm crazy for playing Defiance straight for that long, but will be throwing in support throughout the day to at the very least keep me awake.

If you've ever wanted to ask me anything at all regarding FUEL or FUEL: REFUELED then you've got me open mic for 25 hours that Saturday, so by all means fire away! You can also join me in-game if you like as a 3-day trial of the game is available. I will be making use of a whole range of in-game boosts to benefit whoever groups with me.

I'll be playing in support of the Children's National Medical Center - with any donations going towards international efforts. If any of you who have enjoyed FUEL: REFUELED, my other mods and many community contributions and can spare a dollar for a good cause then I'd very much appreciate it!

Donate to Extra Life! (And view how far I am from my current target)

Links to the download and change-log are provided below. If you get stuck with installation then I've put together a step-by-step video to assist. It can be found here: (Currently links to R1 installation video, give me time and I will update this with one for R2 - although installation is very similar).

If you have any problems with the mod or discover a bug then let me know by either comment or just PM'ing me directly. This is a one-man project, however I'm always happy to help.

This mod looks really cool, I'm redownloading FUEL from Steam at the moment to try it out.

Does this mod stop the blurry/low resolution look in the distance, or do you know some way to stop it? It always bothered me.

Also - any way to increase the FOV and disable mouse acceleration (felt like it was enabled.)

Yeah it bothers me too - I'm still trying to figure out a way to change the render distances for various texture qualities, with the current problem being gaining access to the terrain files which I haven't been able to decompress/unpack just yet (I've unpacked the initial dpc container, but not the contents). I've checked the param file and the .exe and not found anything relating to the render distances in there.

FOV is changed on a per-vehicle and per-camera basis - I'm aware that some of the cameras are a little too close on certain vehicles, obstructing the view and I am working on improving that for a future release. If you have suggestions/feedback on a specific vehicle/camera then feel free to post over in the vehicle handling thread in the forums and I can take a look:

Um don't know about Mouse Acceleration being enabled (I always use gamepad :D), But I'll take a look around the .exe sometime and see if there is any commands relating to enable/disable mouse acceleration etc.

Hello, is it compatible with the French version ?

Hi, current versions of FUEL: REFUELED are English language only and other languages versions may even crash the game with this mod installed. But I have been working towards getting FUEL: REFUELED V15.2 working in French. I'm about half way though now, I don't know if I will finish in time for the initial release of V15.2 [BETA3], but it will hopefully be done soon.

If there is a large enough demand for the mod to be translated into other languages then I will look at those in later releases.

I've opened a forum thread on the topic of french translation and added a download link to a copy of my current progress with translated language file. Its no-where near completed yet, but it should hopefully let you run the mod and play it. If you (and any one else who wants a french compatible version) could assist with some of the phrases I've posted in the thread then it will go a lot faster to getting a properly translated version.

Nice mod Vetron.

Do you know what value in pp001.tsc represents LOD draw distance for grass/etc.. ? thanks

Vetron Nov 23 2010 replied:

I had a brief look through that file a while ago, but didn't find anything relating to the LODs (Would have included it the mod). Not to say it isn't in that file, but an in-depth look to map out all the values is needed I think.

I've set up a forum post here:

I'll check my notes later and write down all of the values I know of, if you've have deciphered what one of the values means then feel free to post here - it might make things go faster.
