    You can get a lot of info by opening up the tdf file from any track. For each material you'll see something like this:

    // Roads Bumps LVL1 //small bumps washboard
    [FEEDBACK]

    (lots of variables here)
    Materials=rdax

    So you can see that rdax is for small bumps which are quite close together. Further searching will reveal that Grxs is rough grass, gtrp is for gravel traps. I imagine this is more likely to stop a car, whereas grvl would be more like a gravel road.

    You can make your own Nmaes also. I made a Snow, Ice and Water material. The Terrain and Road sections I use it on has a material name of Snow, Ice and Water. And the tdf has.

    About this, does that mean you need to call each material

    "rmbl_bleh"

    ...or could it be called anything.

    My question is - does the game search for all materials called "rmbl_xxx" - or is there some other way the material names are linked to surfaces.

    The materials can have any name. In Venue Materials (or the Materials tab in the XPacker program) you choose a value for rFactor material name.

    So if i got this right. When i have two cobble roads and i want to have 1 more bumpier than the other, i give to two materials two different names and i add to the tdf-file those two names with all the information.

    has any one figured out how to get a water splash out the front of the car!!!!
    I have tried and tried, but to no avail.....I was sure I had it right at one stage but nope! lol.......
    Scale=(0.3,0.05,0.6) Growth=(0.3,0.3,0.6) GrowthVel=(0.08,0.09,0.30)
    Have given these values a flogging! even tried a negative value to see if it pushes past the 0,0,0 axis......
