Calculate Car Stats doesn't overwrite parameters.txt

Unread post by Aleon » Tue Oct 12, 2021 8:28 am

"Calculate Car Stats" mode in MAKEITGOOD should overwrite TopEnd and Acc in parameters.txt.
And cars' stat bars in game should be changed by their values.
I remember that, about a year ago.

However I wonder.
I used it on the Build 21.0930a-1, the bars in game was changed.
But parameters.txt wasn't overwritten.

Where calculated stats are saved now?
If it's a bug, please fix.

Sorry, it was solved by myself.
it's in packs/local/cars/<car folder>.

But why did you it even for ones in default folders (e.g. <root RV folder>/cars)?
Is it the premise that NEVER use default folders?
I guess overwriting should be done into same places. It's just confusing.

With the advent of the pack system, it's now sent to packs/local with the idea that the only way to modify/overwrite what's in other packs is to explicitly do so, either through putting the content you're working on in local or copy/pasting files over. I suppose in this case, when packs evidently haven't been set up yet, it's just playing it safe with older installs.

If you really want to edit things in the root folder, then read the directions in the file packs/sample.txt, except make the pertinent section just default * to only use the root folder.

I could overwrite into the root folder directly by using only default pack (with *) you said.
Thank you very much.
