but how do i make it a loc file ? and do i keep the ziped one in the statium car folder ?
And. i dont get it when it says http://example.com/you/CarSkin.zip
A loc (locator) file is a Notepad text file....read the help files!
1. Save a whole car zip into your TM\GameData\Skin\\Vehicles folder
2. send the whole car zip to a website (you'll have to register for one, if your internet service provider doesn't give you this for free, DOH!)
3. That car hosted on a website now has a location, just like a website.... (DOH multiplied by 2)
Just say you were on AOL (shudder), and your username was : ImLost. Your AOL webspace would be something like this (example follows) -
Now lets say the car you're trying to use is (example follows) : mycarisbroken.zip
You'd send the car zip to your AOL host, so its full location
would be : http://www.aol.com/imlost/mycarisbroken.zip
Simple...this is the car location. Now use Windows Notepad (not Wordpad) and type :
and save it as : mycarisbroken in the same folder as the car (but not in the ZIP!)
Now got to the TM\GameData\Skins\Vehicles using Windows Exploder and look for that text file Notepad just made. You'll find it's called :
Left mouse click on it, press F2 key, and rename it to : mycarisbroken.loc
REMEMBER we can only give you examples, you'd have to fill in the parts that are entirely different for your actual webhost, and your actual car zip name. If anyone is confused by that, I despair....try LEGO!
