GTR2 ESSENTIAL v2.0 by DurgeDriven

Firstly an overwhelming thank you to DucFreak and GTR233 granting
permission to re-package their mods for this first release.
Without that I would never have bothered.

MISSING BIK FILES FROM GTR2 STEAM INSTALL

If you use a STEAM install to make your standalone GTR2 as I do in Tutorial
you may want the missing biks

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED:
=

1. Fresh GTR2 install

2. Official Simbin update v1.1

*** Having said that installing this MOD to any existing GTR2 no matter how modded
is 100% safe to test and any conflicts or errors you can restore one click


*** To complete the Full Advanced Tutorial a Fresh untouched GTR2 v1.1 is mandatory ***


I highly recommend Essentials Standalone GTR2 method gives you more flexibility then basic



PREPARATION:
=


*** ALL PACKAGES HAVE CHANGED NAME AND ORDER INCLUDING TUTORIAL, READ ME AND SCREENSHOTS
*** BACKUP YOUR OWN JSGME MOD PACKAGES
*** DE-ACTIVATE ALL MODS IN ALL GTR2 FOLDERS
*** DELETE ALL MODS and MODS INFO folders IN ALL GTR2 FOLDERS


*** READING "GTR2 ESSENTIALS TUTORIAL" IS Essential ! ***

The Tutorial has been redone, Essentials now includes Essentials Advanced so tools have been added so less mods to make and some package # and naming have changed


You will have 3 options to follow now:


1. Essentials Basic: No mods to Create, click and use in any existing or fresh install


2. Essentials Standalone: Creating standalone GTR2 #1, use template as base, finish some included mods


3. Essentials Advanced : Creating Multi standalone GTR2, use template/s as base, Track Linker, finish all included mods.



For full features if everything is not done right down to the letter the packages will not work as intended.

Once fully setup then you can graft folders to archives how and where you like, delete MODS you don't want, etc.


Personally I recommending keeping all content in case you like to try a Standalone or PnG Track Linker later

From #_00 to #_10 there are 26 MODS that are less then 50mb




WARNING:
=======

REMEMBER !

AS SOON as you do ANY MANUAL INSTALLS to any GTR folders that use ESSENTIALS you will have TROUBLES !

EXAMPLE:
You install a mod manually that overwrites files from a installed JSGME package MOD.

So days later you remove the JSGME Mod ( as it gives no warning ) and your manually installed mod will now be corrupted, easy to do.

ANYTHING you want to add package it for JSGME !
It is very simple, basically just a extracted zip file.

Then you will start to see some advantage to it including totally avoiding situations I described above.



FURTHER RECOMMENDATION:
=


Look into my method of using a blank GTR2 template and Standalone GTR2

Especially helpful if you want to make your own mods and solve multi-conflicts
with all default files as well as other mod packages.


*** Recommended tools for packaging: Beyond Compare and Text Crawler Pro




TIPS:
====

*** Use Windows Explorer to delete or rename MODS

Reasons:

JSGME right-click "re-naming" is very easy to delete a MOD
JSGME right-click does not multi-highlight or delete
