Colors ! Colors everywhere !!
- Why this aerials pack ?
- Extra downloads
This pack allow you to use colored aerials on cars. Download the pack below, installation is automated thanks to the included *.bat file.
Extract into the Re-Volt root folder, and execute EBAconfig.bat then follow the instructions.
Most of the time, the “First-time users” installation and “Automatic” mode are fine.
If you have never modified any aerial, ignore messages proposing you to save any changes.
Note : the pack’s author used a few unclear acronyms :
- IBA = Iron Bob’s Aerials (the first aerials pack created by Iron Bob)
- EBA = Electric Bee’s Aerials (the pack available above)
- Blockfix = Modified beachball for Iron Bob’s pack (also work with Electric Bee’s one !)
- Scalefix = Modified beachball only for Electric Bee’s pack
Why this aerials pack ?
Despite this, a lot of cars already use this pack (you may find some on the Re-Volt Zone website).
Thanks to Gel38 and ElectricBee, the beachball now recovered its original aspect, and the number of colors has increased further !
Indeed, Iron Bob’s pack allowed 20 color combinations, Electric Bee’s one is already allowing 1600 !
Feel free to try the Re-Volt original car’s aerials pack !
Cars using Iron Bob’s pack will still work with ElectricBee’s one.
On top of that, using Gel38′s beachball “Blockfix”, you will even be able to customize its colors !
You’ll find extra downloads at the bottom of the page if you only want the customizable beachball, or even the Iron Bob’s pack…
For more informations, here’s the original post
Aerials are mapped on the FxPage1.bmp file, allowing for a wide range of colors
Note that the new pack shortens every aerials a bit :
You may also notice a small visual glitch when driving, especially with long aerials, but it shouldn’t be a problem for most people :
How to customize a car aerial ?
Find the two lines in the Parameters.txt of the car corresponding to the Aerial models :
Parameters.txt... MODEL 15 "NONE" MODEL 16 "NONE" MODEL 17 "cars\misc\Aerial.m" MODEL 18 "cars\misc\AerialT.m" TPAGE "cars\candy\car.bmp" COLL "cars\candy\candy.hul" ...
This is what the file should look like after modification (example for both kits) :
Parameters.txt : using Electric Bee's kit... MODEL 15 "NONE" MODEL 16 "NONE" MODEL 17 "cars\misc\EBAs-0080FF.m" MODEL 18 "cars\misc\EBAt-FF00C4.m" TPAGE "cars\candy\car.bmp" COLL "cars\candy\candy.hul" ...
Parameters.txt : using Iron Bob's kit... MODEL 15 "NONE" MODEL 16 "NONE" MODEL 17 "cars\misc\AerialS.m" MODEL 18 "cars\misc\AerialTS.m" TPAGE "cars\candy\car.bmp" COLL "cars\candy\candy.hul" ...
