The FOJ Community mod for Flatout2(patched to 1.2)is now uploaded & ready for download, it contains 3 parts that make up the full mod .

Some History:
This game was meant to be unmoddable just like Flatout 1, it came with no mod tools, no sdk or any type of editor.But thanks to the skills from a handfull of community members.The game has bin torn apart and upgraded FOJ style,by using the .bfs packer/unpacker(used on bfs game files,database tools(used to decompile/recompile database), customized blender editor(for track editing),language editor(language files editor),flatout1 track editor(used before blender editor available),mod manager(easily add and remove mods with a few clicks of mouse) and of course the reverse track program.

The Mod Info:
-able to handle 135 cars (45 stock ,90 custom)
-single race options added
-ai skins to work with single race options
-car selection memory (once you pick a car and race a track, when you go back to car selection you will start with that car)
-new car selection: stock cars show up at first, press up or down to cycle from stock to carpack1 or carpack2 beta cars etc.Due to this , the delete key is now used for skin selection.
-single race track selection redone like car selection, once at a track, press down and you have that track in reverse, press down again and if there was a custom track it will show up.
-new minimap options added to options menu: small, med, large, medium +full size map, large +fullsize map.
-ragdoll on/off added to options menu
-manual/auto trans option added to first options menu screen with minimap and ragdoll options.
-options menu now accessible in online lobby, can switch from automatic to manual transmission easily when going from derby to race mode.
-new race types: race pong mode now available (drive to finish line, turn around and drive to start/finish line) More or less suicide race ;-p
-new derby modes: derby tag(aka hunter /prey) derby last man standing(normal dd with no points, last one alive wins)
-dd all tracks ( host a derby on any track)
-30 reversed tracks
-13 custom tracks, modified stock tracks of course with new race routes;-p
-13 new online tournament presets
-carpack1, which contains 45 cars taking up car spots 46-90.
Those are the main features.

Extract the 4 .bfs files and the "patch" file to game directory from the 3 winrar files. Start game , create a brand new not used profile and enter the "GIEVEPIX" cheat so all cars show up. You will want to extract the mod manager later to add more mods .

The mod manager is included in the main mod part 1, to make a new patch file when needed or to go back to stock patch file.

Current outstanding bugs:
1. Watching replay in singleplayer stunts will have you stuck in replay mode.But replay of stunt works fine in career mode.
Solution: none so far.
2. If online and playing hunter/prey(tag), if a player drops and you do not hit escape to go back to online lobby before the timer runs out and the round ends, you will be stuck viewing the dropped player and will have to hit "alt-f4" to close down game.
Solution: none so far.
3. New bug found: If the host selects "use same car as host" option and a player goes to car selection menu(to change skin) , that player's game will crash.
Solution: If you are hosting a race ,do not use the "use same car as host " option. Type in the chat box instead to have all use a certain car.Or just let people drive what they want ;-p

Updates:

Carpack 2 beta is released and found on flatoutjoint.com in the downloads section under flatout2/carpack2 named "carpack 2 beta download", its a link to heddly's site where we put our large files. This beta contains mod updates as well as 53 cars, 3 are replacing carpack 1 cars. The "bug" of being stuck in singleplayer stunt replay mode is now fixed thanks to Peter Greene from the empire interactive forums. This beta still requires the foj mod parts 1 ,2 and 3 to be installed as this pack is considered part 4.
