Since DT-75 is dependednt on Spintires Plus mod i did get flooded with comments on Steam workshop about game crashing because some people never bothered to read mod desription and did not install ST+. I had idea to hide error message somewhere inside DT-75 mesh that would become visible when ST+ was missing but first i needed solution to crash. Luckily Localhost found time to fix the issue with crash and provided the xml code for error message to show only when ST+ was missing.
So here is what i belive fixed the game crashing for DT-75 when ST+ was not installed. Localhost added this FixedBreakable constraint to track links so tracks would just fall apart when ST+ is missing instead of crash game. I leave this xml part here as example if anyone needs to fix tracked vehicle crashing without ST+ installed.
Now the error message would be useful for some modders who need to have ST+ installed for their mod to function correctly.Firs of all this is what error message would look like in game if ST+ is not installed.
This is the setup in 3ds Max its pretty basic error_cdt lower point is the axis and it falls down by gravity if ST+ is missing.When ST+ is installed the error_cdt is being restricted from falling down by constraint that only works with ST+ installed. The error text mesh is child of error_cdt and its offset slightly to expose more of it when it falls out.
Here is the xml code Localhost did set up that makes the error show only when ST+ is not installed.
