About this mod

This mod changes both the car brand names and car names of all 54 vehicles in the game UI that best match their real life counterpart. It also comes with a VERY realistic but lore-friendly traffic variety feature and allows all 54 cars in the game to BOTH be be storeable in the garage and to be seen for display in the Carcyclopedia.

====================ABOUT THE MOD=====================


A mod created that is a product of 250+ hours of researching, analyzing, comparing, and matching the in-game vehicles to the ones found in real life. 


Most names are based on the suggestions from a M1DE wiki, some are personal interpretation and some are from users who conducted their own research. 
( https://mafiagame.fandom.com/wiki/Talk:Vehicles_in_Mafia:_Definitive_Edition )

- Changes the car brand names and car names of ALL 54 vehicles in the game to their real life counterparts that is displayed     in the UI in the Carcyclopedia, Garage, and the car brand name UI that displays whenever you enter any vehicle.

- Changes traffic variety and car spawn behavior such that the cars will only spawn at the specific year their real car name        suggests. This realistic traffic variety feature is based from Sparky66's Realistic Traffic Variety mod, except that this one          HIGHLY AND HEAVILY IMPROVES on it in so many ways. Though the cars will only spawn at the specific year their real car      name suggests, some cars were made as an exception to this rule in order to make it lore-friendly to the game's setting.           They were made as an  exception to the rule due to at least one of the following reasons:
           
      - They appear in-game in a mission in Story Mode that is earlier than the year their real life counterpart was produced
         (e.g. the 1934 Ford Model 40 Coupe a.k.a Bolt V8 appearing as early as the 1930's era of Story Mode, specifically during
         the mission "Molotov Party" where the vehicle can be found parked facing the gates in Salieri's Bar and the yellow                     Smith V12 that is used by the Morello thug that you will chase during the Story Mode mission "Ordinary Routine".)
       - They appear in a cutscene in Story Mode that is earlier than the year their real life counterpart was produced
        (e.g. Don Morello's 1934 Mercedes Benz 500K a.k.a Celeste Mark 5 vehicle that appears during the cutscene with Joey             Crackers that occurred in the 1932's era of the game)

^This helps make the mod VERY lore-friendly.
  
- Allows literally ALL 54 vehicles in the game to be stored in the garage, including the unused Parry Betting Office and Smith Thrower.
- Allows all 54 vehicles to be driveable (e.g. the Parry Betting Office was undriveable in the vanilla game.)
- Allows you to view all 54 vehicles in the game in the Carcyclopedia since not all vehicles appear in it in the vanilla game.

This mod is best enjoyed with the "Free Ride Deluxe V2.6" mod being installed first BEFORE this one.

====================MOD FEATURES=====================

For reference as well as in order to avoid possible confusion, please be informed that there five (5) different year eras throughout the game.

(1) All car names and car brand names of all 54 vehicles in the game will now display their real life counterpart in the UI        of the Carcyclopedia, Garage, and the car brand name UI that pops up whenver you enter any vehicle.


Here's the full and complete list of ALL 54 cars in the game that comes with their full and complete real life car names for reference. Take note that a lot of the names had to be shortened in order to fit the game's UI display since adding more results to the game NOT displaying the last few words of the car name. Not all vehicles are a 100% exact fit to their real life counterparts; they are simply the ones that  resemble the in-game version the most that is based from what we found in our 250+ hours of researching, analyzing and comparing the cars from the ones in the game to the ones in real life.

(2) All 54 vehicles in the game (including the unused Parry Betting Office and Smith Thrower) can now be 
    stored in the garage and can be used freely at anytime in both Story Mode and Free Ride mode.
 

(3) All 54 vehicles in the game (including the unused Parry Betting Office and Smith Thrower) now all appear in the
    Carcyclopedia. The vanilla game didn't allow all cars to be shown in the Carcyclopedia.



(4) All 54 vehicles in the game are now driveable (e.g. the Parry Betting Office was undriveable in the vanilla game.)


(5) All vehicles in the game now appear in traffic (with a few exceptions listed below) in both Story Mode and Free Ride
     mode, including the unused Parry Betting Office truck and the one-time-only used Bulworth Sentry van.
    
   - All vehicles in the game will appear in traffic in both Story Mode and Free Ride Mode EXCEPT the following vehicles:
       (5A) Smith Moray - this vehicle only started its production in 1955-1957 in real life. 
       (5B) Smith Thrower - this vehicle only started its production in 1955-1957 in real life.
       (5C) Waybar Concept - the design and aesthetic of this motorcycle looks too futuristic to the look and feel of 
                             1930's Lost Heaven Empire Bay or the 1930's in general. Plus, you're supposed to only unlock 
                             this vehicle through a Free Ride Mode-exclusive mission.
       (5D) Manta Prototype - same issue with the Waybar Concept, but add the fact that there's only one (1) copy 
                              of this car that was ever produced in real life.
       (5E) Brubaker Forte - it's a race track car that's supposed to only be used in the race track. 
                             Don't see any reason of adding this car in traffic whatsoever.
       (5F) Carozella C-Series - it's a race track car that's supposed to only be used in the race track. 
                                 Don't see any reason of adding this car in traffic whatsoever.
       (5G) Haverley Tomahawk (Black Cats) - it's a DLC-exclusive vehicle and thus, it should only be available to you.
       (5H) Crazy Horse - it's a vehicle that can only be unlocked through a Free Ride-exclusive mission. 
                          Also, having hot rods in traffic looks game-breaking and just feels wrong.
       (5I) Smith V12 Chicago - it's a DLC-exclusive vehicle and thus, it should only be available to you.
       (5J) Disorder - it's a race track car that's supposed to only be used in the race track. 
                       Don't see any reason of adding this car in traffic whatsoever.
       (5K) Flame Spear - it's a race track car that's supposed to only be used in the race track. 
                          Don't see any reason of adding this car in traffic whatsoever.    
       (5L) Haverley Tomahawk P - this vehicle will only appear when you gain a 2 star or higher wanted level from the cops.
       (5M) Mutagen - it's a race track car that's supposed to only be used in the race track. 
                      Don't see any reason of adding this car in traffic whatsoever.
       (5N) Samson Drifter - it's a DLC-exclusive vehicle and thus, it should only be available to you.
       (5O) Shubert Frigate - it's a DLC-exclusive vehicle and thus, it should only be available to you.
       (5P) Shubert Luxe Detective - this vehicle will only start to appear when you get a 4-star or higher wanted level 
                                     from the cops. The Shubert Six Detective is replaced by this vehicle starting from the
                                     1933's era and onwards.
       (5Q) Shubert Six Detective - this vehicle will only start to appear when you get a 4-star or higher wanted level 
                                    from the cops. Get this vehicle before the Story Mode mission "A Trip To The Country".
   
     
(6) Traffic Variety is as realistic as it can possibly be but it is also VERY lore-friendly
   
- All cars STRICTLY only start to spawn in traffic in the specific years their real car name suggests. For instance, 
   you won't see the 1934 Chrysler Airflow aka Culver Airmaster appear in traffic during the 1933 or earlier eras 
   of the game in Story Mode. Once a car starts spawning in traffic, they will continue to appear in all other 
   proceeding years (a 1932 car will continue to appear in the 1933 era, 1935 era, and the 1938 era of Story Mode). 

- Some vehicles will appear in traffic much earlier than the specific year their real car name suggests in both Story
      Mode and Free Ride Mode:
       (6A) Parry Bus - starts appearing in traffic during the 1930's era. This vehicle is literally the only bus-type vehicle 
                                    in the game. Plus, buses were a thing way before the 1930's. 
       (6B) Shubert Luxe - starts appearing in traffic during the 1933's era. they appear as early as the 1933 era of Story Mode 
                                         because I can't seem to find a way as to how to change the police vehicles that spawn that patrol 
                                         the city and the ones that spawn during various wanted levels. Also, in the 1933 era Story Mode 
                                         mission "A Trip To The Country", Ralph sends you off to a warehouse by giving you a Shubert Luxe to                                           use. Again, this is to make the mod lore-friendly.
       (6C) Shubert Luxe Taxi - starts appearing in traffic during the 1933's era. they appear as early as the 1933 era of 
                                                 Story Mode because I can't seem to find a way as to how to change the police vehicles that 
                                                 spawn that patrol the city and the ones that spawn during various wanted levels. Also, in 
                                                 the 1933 era Story Mode mission "A Trip To The Country", Ralph sends you off to a warehouse 
                                                 by giving you a Shubert Luxe to use. Again, this is to make the mod lore-friendly.
       (6D) Shubert Luxe Police - they appear as early as the 1933 era of Story Mode because I can't seem to find a way as to 
                                                     how to change the police vehicles that spawn that patrol the city and the ones that spawn 
                                                     during various wanted levels. Also, in the 1933 era Story Mode mission "A Trip To The                                                                       Country",  Ralph sends you off to a warehouse by giving you a Shubert Luxe to use to get                                                                  there. Again, this is to make the mod lore-friendly.
       (6E) Shubert Luxe Detective - starts appearing in traffic during the 1933's era but ONLY WHEN YOU GET A 4 STAR 
                                                          OR HIGHER WANTED LEVEL. They appear as early as the 1933 era of Story Mode because I 
                                                           can't seem to find a way as to how to change the police vehicles that spawn that 
                                                           patrol the city and the ones that spawn during various wanted levels. Also, in the 
                                                           1933 era Story Mode mission "A Trip To The Country", Ralph sends you off to a 
                                                           warehouse by giving you a Shubert Luxe to use to get there. 
                                                           Again, this is to make the mod lore-friendly.
       (6F) Shubert Six - they appear as early as the 1930 era of Story Mode because you are literally driving a 
                                      Shubert Six in the prologue mission "An Offer You Can't Refuse".
                                      Again, this is to make the mod lore-friendly.
       (6G) Shubert Six Taxi - they appear as early as the 1930 era of Story Mode because you are literally driving a 
                                               Shubert Six in the prologue mission "An Offer You Can't Refuse".
                                               Again, this is to make the mod lore-friendly.
       (6H) Shubert Six Police - they appear as early as the 1930 era of Story Mode because you are literally driving a 
                                                  Shubert Six in the prologue mission "An Offer You Can't Refuse".
                                                  Again, this is to make the mod lore-friendly.
       (6I) Shubert Six Detective - starts appearing in traffic during the 1930's era but ONLY WHEN YOU GET A 4 STAR OR                                                                   HIGHER  WANTED LEVEL.They appear as early as the 1930 era of Story Mode because you                                                             are literally driving a Shubert Six in the prologue mission "An Offer You Can't Refuse".
                                                       Again, this is to make the mod lore-friendly.
       (6J) Haverley Tomahawk - starts appearing in traffic during the 1930's era. It's the only motorcycle available to the public                                                        in the game. 
       (6K) Haverley Tomahawk P - starts appearing in traffic during the 1930's era but ONLY WHEN YOU GET A 2 STAR OR                                                                   HIGHER WANTED LEVEL. It's the only motorcycle available to the public in the game and 
                                                         thus, the police version should be available as well.  
                                
       (6L) Bolt Mail - starts appearing in traffic during the 1930's era. It's the only mail delivery-type vehicle in the game.  
       (6M) Bolt Hearse - starts appearing in traffic during the 1930's era. It's the only funeral-type vehicle in the game.
       (6N) Celeste Mark 5 - starts appearing in traffic during the 1932's era. It appears during the cutscene with 
                                             Don Morello and Joey Crackers set in the 1932 era.
       (6O) Bolt V8 - starts appearing in traffic during the 1930's era. It appears during the 1930's era Story Mode 
                               mission "Molotov Party" where it can be found parked facing the gates in Salieri's Bar, right 
                               before you meet Vincenzo for the very first time.
       (6P) Bolt Delivery - it's the only delivery-type car sedan available in the game.
       (6Q) Bolt Delivery Ambulance - ambulance services are always needed, regardless of the year. It is also the only
                                      ambulance-type vehicle available in the game.
       (6R) Smith V12 - starts appearing in traffic during the 1930's era. It's the car used by the Morello thug that you will 
                                     chase during the Story Mode mission "Ordinary Routine".  
     
       
    - All vehicles appear at a balanced amount. No one (1) or two (2) cars will appear too often but it can still VERY rarely 
      happen due to the game's algorithm as to when and how often a vehicle spawns in traffic. I can't really control that. 
      It also depends on what specific year era (1930, 1932, 1933, 1935, and 1938) you are playing in in Story Mode. 
      Fewer cars will appear in traffic during the 1930 era and 1932 era so it may make some vehicles spawn more often. 
      Again, I cannot control this since it's the game algorithm that does that. 
        
 
(7) All vehicles that appear in traffic in both Story Mode and Free Ride mode now only appear in the specific
      neighborhoods that they are supposed to appear in.  
    
       - All sports cars and luxurious cars will only mostly appear in urban areas like Downtown, Oakwood, Central Island, 
         and Beech Hill. 
       - All trucks, industrial vehicles, and buses will appear more often in the industrial and poorer parts of Lost Heaven like                 Little Italy, Holbrook, Works Quarter, North Park, Chinatown, and the Countryside / city outskirts. All delivery vehicles and taxi vehicles can appear anywhere by default but they now appear in the Countryside / city outskirts as well (all except the Bolt Ace Pickup since it's not realistic for that vehicle to travel far and wide into the Countryside / city outskirts but it may still rarely appear there).
       - The Bulworth Sentry now appears in traffic and can be found anywhere, including the Countryside / city outskirts. 
         It can be found everywhere except Oakwood and Beech Hill. Although it is a police vehicle by design, think of it 
         as an armored van that drives around carrying precious cargo such as money that will be deposited in the bank or a 
         transport for prisoners. It appears in the Countryside / city outskirts not only because they carry precious cargo 
         or transporting VIPs and prisoners alike, but also because it says "Border Patrol" on it so it would only make 
         sense for the vehicle to appear in the far corners of the map as well and not just in the city. I don't know how 
         to change what vehicles the police use for normal patrols and during various wanted levels since I really tried to 
         but to no avail and thus, I decided to make them appear as civilian cars instead.
       - All other regular vehicles like the Shubert Six, Shubert Luxe, Bolt Ace, Haverley Tomahawk etc. can practically appear
         anywhere in the map. 
       
 
(8) With all these features, it is 100% possible to get almost all vehicles in the game through Story Mode alone
    
   - The only vehicles you can't get in Story Mode are 
       
       Smith Moray 
       Smith Thrower 
       Waybar Concept 
       Manta Prototype 
       Brubaker Forte 
       Carozella C-Series 
       Crazy Horse 
       Disorder 
       Flame Spear 
       Mutagen 
      
      because they all require you to complete a Free Ride Mode-exclusive mission.


======================CHANGELOG =====================

1.0.1       - 2021-4-21

Fixed having a wrong file in the "for_manual_patching" folder. No functional changes.

1.1.0       - 2021-5-3

Added release years to most models. Further changed some manufacturer and model names
as they only fit M1 but not M1DE for example.

Fixed and improved car names. Mod now includes Ultra Realistic but lore-friendly traffic variety, 
all cars appearing in Carcyclopedia, and all cars being storeable in garage.

=====================INSTALLATION=====================
* Best Case: You have no other mods that change the same .sds files.
Copy the sds_retail folder and its contents into your Mafia Definitive Edition main
directory and overwrite existing files.

* Not so ideal: You have a mod that changed these specific files.

Unpack the currently used .sds files and patch them manually with "Mafia Toolkit".
hud_vehicle_info.gfx            in  /gui/ingame_gui.sds
menu_carcyclopedia.gfx          in  /gui/shared_gui.sds
vehicles_game_group.xbin        in  /tables/tables.sds
stringtable_XX_common_group.xml in  /string_tables/stringtable_XX.sds

* Worst Case: You have a mod installed that changed the very same files IN the .sds

Basically you'd have to manually redo all the changes in the .xbin files.
If you have requests to merge or remove a particular mod in this mod, feel free to personally message cloakedcollective.

=====================HOW IT WORKS=====================
* The cars model names are stored in the string tables and can be replaced there.
Some manufacturer names are also there. They don't affect what is shown in the
UI most of the times however.

* The cars manufacturer name displayed when entering a car or in the carcyclopedia
is stored as vector graphic in:
/gui/ingame_gui.sds/gui/hud_vehicle_info.gfx
/gui/shared_gui.sds/gui/menu_carcyclopedia.gfx
Use "JPEXS Free Flash Decompiler" to export and import the graphics.
The graphics itself are best changed with "Inkscape". Convert all objects to path
and then save as "Optimized SVG" with most boxes ticked for best compatibility.

* vehicles_game_group.xbin "ties" the vehicles together. It defines a cars brand
for example. If you'd like to have a car show up as another brand, you'll have
to change "LogoNameUI" and "BrandNameUI".
