NFS Underground has the best gameplay among street racing games and to this day. I created mod called m2011 in 2010-2011 years. Purpose of this mod: improve technical quality of game with saving best details of original gameplay. So it has two main features:
- All the new HQ cars are similar to the original class and have a complete tuning of the real manufacturers with additional capabilities.
- Environmental graphics improved by adding new effects and adjusting the lighting and replacing the original textures to new with high-resolution.
Mod had been downloaded by thousands gamers around the world. Mostly it had positive reviews. But it also has many weaknesses. So i decided to fix it and continue work on given tasks. I started work in 2016 and called my new version of mod: mSE.

Cars were selected as similar to original cars by performance class and, as I think, they are fit to underground game style. Basically it's JDM, some Europeans. So, for they customization features was given special attention.

Customization.

  • Front bumpers: from real manufacturers, style of bumpers is different for each car. On the average 8 models in body paint, 7 same models in carbon material. Examples:

5% GPU w/ 10% CPU? I've a 1070ti and Ryzen 7 2700x, with shaders and such, I've gotten fps slowdowns in some areas before. On my Helios 300 laptop, I actually only have very minimal shaders, and can't really run it well even without shaders unless it's plugged in (for the full gpu delivery). This game is actually fairly powerful and I fear what it could of been had it been made with current technological advances. NFS: Underground RTX anyone? XD Honestly, I'd be happy if this mod could release the newer meshes for the traffic. While the screenshots showed are simply beautiful, the traffic in the base game is pretty much the same as in Midnight Club 2/3. Reminds me of how people made cars in Second Life back in '07. Bad times, very bad times.
