Hello, can someone explain me how to make dashboard lights, on lower beam?
Most of the cars have dashboard lights only in night, I want to make it for all the time when I turn on lights. B)

Moved to Mods (General)

Open the textures folder for that car
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\City Car Driving\export\texturesdds\cars\(Car Name)

Find something like interior.dds and interior_night.dds. It may have different names, like buttons.dds or others. They look like a cluster of buttons symbols and gauges. Make sure when editing, you keep the original names.

Open the non-night texture with an editing program. Select all symbols with the wand tool.
Then make those symbols transparent (But not fully, leave a bit for the original colour to still be there in some form).

Save that file, then open it again and colour over everything with the colour you wish they would appear in the game when the light is turned on. Name that as the night texture.


Finished example:
Before

After

If that made no sense, I can do a video tutorial.

Half of success :D
The dashboard light is work on turned on engine, but the steering wheel buttons is lighting, when I turn on lights.

I think I must change something in saloon n2 file.

Yes. Saloon.n2/carlod0.n2 or wheel.n2/driver.n2

Find the objects in the files which use the interior textures.

Find this line
.setvector "DevicePanelFlagMask" 0.000000 0.000000 0.000000 0.000000

To make buttons come on with headlights, change it to this.
.setvector "DevicePanelFlagMask" 1.000000 0.000000 0.000000 0.000000

To make buttons come on with engine, change it to this.
.setvector "DevicePanelFlagMask" 0.000000 1.000000 0.000000 0.000000
