also is there a forum page about how to make an XML file from  scratch for a mod for spin tires? ive been seeing code here and there but i really dont know where to start in XML

No, but there are an infinite ammount of XML tutorials online. I did post some ST related XML tips here, but never really added anything to it.

Media
folder and delete everything except the
videos
folder.
4. Press and simultaneously, type in (or copy)

I am a Newbie and wanted to know if there is a link to a description of how to play this game ? I have looked at 3 or 4 "demos" and gone thru the FAQ,  but none discuss the objectives or how you are supposed to approach any task. The driving I get, that part is easy, but, for example, if the truck I have shows it has a Winch, how do I make it work ? I saw lots of things in the demos but I have no idea how the user accomplished what they did.

Thanks

When in game if you push the ESC button and go to controls you can find what your looking for , Press 'V' to use the vehicles options like the winch......I cant help you with the objective stuff i dont play it for that im just a explorer.
