Quick question.

Post by camsedin » 31 Aug 2011, 01:52

couldnt find the answer and unsure how it was in tmf.

but if i had a dedicated server and lets say i had a custom track running and some custom billboards with the server name/advert.

will all players connecting automaticly download these textures and see them when ingame?

or do they have to download them from somewere?

(same question goes for cars/skins)

cheers guys.

Okay--for all cases, it depends on several factors. For large mods (such as CoastKid's white rock Canyon--which is awesome BTW :P ) It would probably have to be DLed somewhere (like Maniapark) by each user, unless locators suddenly have gotten awesome. As for cars, the aforementioned locators should do the trick. Cars that are uploaded to Maniapark must have a locator with the file, and what that does is tell the user's computer that "Hey, there's a place you can DL this faster than over a P2P connection," which is great for servers where visuals are a must. -Pieces- of mods, such as custom signage and whatnot, probably could be downloaded in this manner as well. Hope this helps some :thumbsup:
