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.

The problem with developing new vehicles and other assets lies within the lack of access to several file archives (the .dpc's). It needs someone with knowledge in file compression/decompression to come up with some unpacker/packer. Not where my expertise lies sadly so unable to do it myself (i've reach out in the past to varying individuals but no luck).

If we had that, then that would open a whole new set of options for modding FUEL.

I'm having an issue with the JSGME mod loader bundled with the mod. The issue is that it won't open. I looked at the processes in the task manager and the process appears, then disappears a few seconds later. Is there any support available for this? And if not, is it possible to install the mod without JSGME?

Okay, so... I've downloaded it only for changing day cycle lenght and custom vehicle colors. Vehicle colors editor is fully working, but day cycle doesn't. No matter what value I choose or even when I tried "force day time" to check out if it would work, day cycle freezes at something like before-sunset (don't know, maybe 19:00 o'clock?).

another great mod would be a better sound mod, the engine sounds are fine. Its the cluck sound that is absolutely horrible. Also, some times I turn the music off and I can occasionaly hear birds or frogs ( I think). So adding nature sounds, more birds and animal sounds, wind, or even machinery sounds (windmills, pumps) etc would be very immersive. Also a radio station with weather reports, air conditions, or other game lore news info would be very cool for free ride.

Just downloaded it on my new pc. Havent tried many of the features yet,
but have to say it is impressive. I really look forward to your new career races. I know fuel allows you to make your own race, is it possible to mod it in single player to select other vehicles to race?
The only other big wish is hood or in car view. You had given me some info on the parameters earlier and I tried fooling with the camara paramaters on one car without luck. When I have time I might try on a ATV or buggy. Even if I could drvie a few in hood view it would be fantastic. Your hard work is greatly apprieciated. Do you have a donation link? I'm sure a few of us wouldnt mind supporting you. Fuels
world is alive, and with your mod, its alive and kicking.

Well I have a race editor in development which will allow you to select what opponents you face and change all the environmental settings. It will also let you run with 'all' vehicle types in one race for complete chaos if you so choose.

When I have completed the long list of things I already have planned or am working on (its a big list including race expansion pack, the race editor i mentioned, vista point packs and more - easily enough to keep me going well into 2014 at this rate :D) I shall give the hoods a look into I think perhaps again. It really is just a painfully slow set of changes to implement given the work it would take and why its 'lower' priority compared to other things right now - but one day perhaps i hope :P

Well I welcome the thought of wanting to make a donation, but I do not have a donation link as it's never really something I've considered before. However as long as REFUELED is well received and useful to people then I will continue to work on it :)

I've just posted a screenshot of the new vehicle color palette editor, or at least the current version of it. REFUELED is very much alive :D
