While we were working on the new OEM version for later this year, Jesse dug through hundreds of references towards tyre sets and figured that our stock tyres aren’t really “realistic”.
With the release of beta 17 and the huge traction issue we have especially on powerful bikes like the 450 4 strokes and no fix or patch coming from the developer and the massive amount of complaints from the racing community, we quickly figured we should patch the tyres on our own and prevent this ship from sinking even more.
And here we are: The 2022 Ultimate OEM Tyre Patch by yours truly, Jesse Mulock!
Keep in mind this is a somewhat dirty fix to bring back some fun to the game. This patch will probably be obsolete once the new OEMs or Beta 18 arrives us, but this is the current state-of-the-art we want to ship with the new revision of OEM bikes.
We also see this opportunity as a feedback pool for what we’re working on for the OEMs later this year. So your feedback is more than welcome!
The patch adds 2 tyres to the front and 3 tyres to the rear. You can still use PiBoSo’s original tyres if these work better for you, but you have the option to choose between following sets:
The tyres are selectable in the in-game garage.
Note: This is the easiest we could do before updating the +2GB pack of OEM bikes.
Note: It will definitely cause issues and people complaining about Bike Mismatches, but to make the game more enjoyable again, this is the only way of doing it.
In the pack you’ll find the “default” installation which patches a file for each OEM MX Bike to use the various tyres we’ve added to the p_mx wheels. It will also come with the stock tyre p_mx.pkz packed and locked – because without, you’d have invisible tyres.
You can still use Giopanda’s Dunlop as well as the Maxxis wheels, just replace the p_mx.pkz. Also included in this ZIP. See below for installation instructions.
Important Note: The hotfix for Gio’s tyres are NO LONGER needed, as this fix here covers it all. All servers and players have to have this installed to prevent Bike Mismatch as much as possible.
EVEN MORE IMPORTANTER NOTE: This patch will also be used in the 2022 ARL Nationals Championship!
Open ZIP and move the tyres and bikes folders from "0. INSTALL FIRST" into your MX Bikes mods folder.
If you want, you can also install GioPanda's custom wheels from the ZIP. Simply choose which one you'd like to use and move the tyres folder into your mods folder AFTER you've installed the patch. This will simply replace the stock PiBoSo wheels p_mx.pkz.
Overwrite existing files or remove them beforehand!
