Anyone Know of a Physics Swap Mod?

Are there any Mods out there to Swap Physics between tracks?
IE: Create a track in Rally and save it with the physics from Bay or Coast?
It seem like it wouldn't be that hard to do.
Or, maybe when you load a track you could choose which physics engine to load with it.
I know this should only be used in Offline play but it would be cool.
In a future version of TM it would be cool if when you enter the Track Editor you could have a "Choose Physics" option along with the "Time of Day" and "Simple/Advanced" options.
Imagine playing a track in Desert with the Physics of Stadium.

Nope, not possible.

Why do you say Not Possible?
When TM loads a track it also loads the physics.
I see no reason the physics couldn't be loaded from ANY of the environments.
It's just a matter of programming a script that redirects what is loaded.
Is there a reason someone couldn't do that?

You're right Demented, but F*ckfish got a very good point. You see, some gamedevelopers like folks to change the game (mods), eg Valve (they have made the legendary Half-life and Half-life 2), while others like to decrypt their games so it isn't able to mod it, eg Nadeo. It's like they lock the game. And sure, there is lockpickers, but these are rare, and they often uses their skills on other things than games...

It could potentially exist, but it is not, and probably never be : in TM the environment indicate the physics, and globally the blocks are made to fit the physics.
TM mods are only textures changes, so all that you can do is to make a mod which make an environment looks a little like another one. There are already some mods like that. ;)

Thanks for the feedback.

I do LOVE the game the way it is.
Rally is the only env. I don't care for.
I Love the graphics and tracks in Rally, just not the physics.
Every new environment Nadeo makes gets better and better.
Can't wait to see what's next!
