technical help strange car in garage

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've just started playing mafia 2 for the first time in ages.


I have noticed this car in my garage ,which looks badly damaged.


It is the smith coupe.


When you take it out to drive ,it has the front hood missing and the right door is missing.


The left door is hanging open.


The driver (me) is buried in the ground ,when driving.


He is on the right hand side with his head and shoulders above the ground


in the driving position with his hands out.


But he appears to be down near the wheel or running board.


I did install a few mods a while ago,but can't remember too well .


Is this a problem that has been seen before?


I know it's one the many mods i installed,but i was hoping someone has seen this before,


and i can just remove the offending mod.

Trying to 'repair' the car in garage  doesn't work.

It is down to one of the mods i installed ,though i was hoping someone could save me from having to go through all the mods ,to check.



I might just have to check through the mods i installed.

It's just the saves won't work ,if u remove any dlc folders.


i just looked in dlc folder and i have cnt_high speed_cars and one of the files is called smith_coupe_wreck.sds +smith_coupe_wreck_z.sds

I'm will try and remove it and see if it helps.


i removed cnt_high speed_cars and the broken car is still there ,luckily i didn't have to play to much, as it appears in one of the first missions to steal a coupe from the black gang.

I think the one causing the trouble is cnt_spoils_of_war ,it puts the military vehicles in game and one of the vehicles it uses is smith_coupe_wreck.sds +smith_coupe_wreck_z.sds.

So i think it is a badly made mod ,which is trying to shoehorn the war vehicles

into the game.(nice idea,but imperfect)

I was hoping i could check the garage quickly by using the" friends for life" mod ,but no dice.

I can't face going  through starting another new game to check right now,though I'm pretty sure I've found the problem.


Thanks .

Final follow up.






edit: after putting dlc " cnt_high speed_cars" back in game folder ,i deleted its smith_coupe_wreck_z.sds and replaced it with a different car renamed to 

smith_coupe_wreck_z.sds and the problem car is gone.

I'm still not sure if that dlc mod was causing the problem.

Or whether it just covered a problem in the main car folder.

Anyway it;s gone now and i have a walter_coupe instead of smith coupe. :rolleyes:



P,S,i feel i should just say the spoils of war dlc mod is probably ok

I might have been mistaken in saying it's a bad mod :)^ 

My apologies to the mod author.
