Custom cars visible in TMN?

Post by Sorcix » 20 Apr 2008 11:26

Hello,

I have bought Trackmania United (Forever), and I'm using a custom 3D model as a car. Can people with only TM Nations see my car?

Yes, as long as you're using your TMUF account.
Just ask them though. :)
Sometimes they'll see a boring, grey car for a while.
That means they are still downloading your custom car, and the game has to show something in the meantime, so that's the grey skin.

To shorten that time, make sure you use a locator.
The place you got the custom car should offer a locator and info on how to use it.
Otherwise use Search on this forum or check the documentation on TMX.

Thanks.

I managed to make a locator now, and that seems to work.

Can I disable p2p in trackmania when I'm using locators, or is upload p2p required to send the .loc file to other players?
