After adding a few vehicles I already got bored of the tedious work involved so I assembled this script within two hours or so. It merges your existing .meta files with new ones you want to add. But because it was quickly made, it's quite user unfriendly but it works for me and if it helps anyone else then that's great.
YOU MUST READ THIS
Always make a backup of the files that already work before doing anything.
You can put this .exe in the assets folder, but I strongly recommend having it in a seperate folder and then moving the merged files manually afterwards.
Script creates a
_trunk folder. This is where you put the files-to-be-merged. These files inside the _trunk folder WILL get deleted by the program without warning.
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!! You have been warned.
- Put .exe inside a folder of your choice
- (Optional) Put the vehicles, handling, carvariations and carcols .meta files that you already have and want to merge in the same folder as the .exe
- Start .exe
- Move or copy vehicles, handling, carvariations and/or carcols .meta files that you want to merge into the
_trunk folder. You can repeat this step for as many vehicles that you want.
- Close the program to save changes to your main .meta files.
Doesn't merge sirens as I haven't needed to add these myself. But you can easily just edit the .meta afterwards and just put it in manually.
Does not take care of translation as this isn't really important for my little playground server. But maybe I will add this later on.
