How to add a new car (Burnout Paradise)
Tools[edit | edit source]
Steps[edit | edit source]
- Get a vehicle file (_AT.BIN and _GR.BIN)
- Open up the
VEHICLES/VEHICLELIST.BUNDLEin Bundle Manager
- Copy the entry for (as an example) the Hunter Cavalry
- Give it a new vehicle ID (try to format it like the game does i.e. PUSMC01 for P_US_MuscleCar_01).
- Give it a new AttribSys ID in the VehicleList. Can be any ID, but try to keep it as a number over 1000000 to prevent conflicts with existing IDs.
- Rename the files to have the structure VEH_<vehicleid>_AT.BIN, VEH_<vehicleid>_CD.BIN, VEH_<vehicleid>_GR.BIN
- If you don't have a _CD.BIN file for your car, just pick another one and rename it.
- Alternatively, you can take the original files and use Bundle Manager's "Save As..." feature to give them the new name.
- Find the IDs that you have to edit. For all values in the table below, do the following:
- Edit by clicking on the menu "Edit > Edit ID" and typing in the string in lower case
- If it works, the name will show up in Bundle Manager
- Open up VEH_<vehicleid>_AT, right-click "bunrnoutcarasset", then in the menu click "Change CollectionHash"
- Put in the AttribSys ID from step three and save
Then you should see your new car!
Values to change[edit | edit source]
|File||ID in BundleManager||Replace with||Comment|
|VEH__AT||AnimationCollection||<vehicle_id>_ANIM||Only available for the bikes.|
Be sure to also change the name and hash in cleartext in VEH_<vehicleid>_CD. The hash in clear text is not bitswapped.
How to select the new car[edit | edit source]
Use BPR Modder and install Brick Remastered. You can then select with F9 the new car in the Portable Junkyard.
How to name the car[edit | edit source]
Search your language in LANGUAGE/LANGUAGE_X.bundle and open it up with Bundle Manager.
- Calculate the Language hash, by click on Tools → Hash in the Language Manager and typing in CAR_CAPS_<vehicle_id> for the name or CAR_BLURB_<vehicle_id> for the description.
- Add the hash at the bottom with the new string.
- Click on File → Apply changes to apply your changes.
- Save your changes.
You should now see your new name and description of the car!

- Open up VEH_<vehicleid>_AT.BIN with Bundle Manager
