SpintiresPlus is a collection of hacks for Spintires meant to alter some of the hardcoded elements.
WARNING: ST+ is no longer in active development, support is limited to bugfixes and compatibility with newer versions of the game (if they ever come out...).
Each feature can be individually (de)activated in SpintiresPlus_config.xml. Just open it with notepad or notepad++.
This file is also the mod's documentation.

Unzip d3d9.dll, AntTweakBar.dll, SpintiresPlus_config.xml, and SpintiresPlusResources in the directory that contains Spintires.exe
Then TWEAK THE CONFIG FILE.
The version on mediafire will always be the most up to date. The one on Oovee's servers may or may not trail a bit behind.
Source code is also available on mediafire.
Q-Does it work in multiplayer?
A-I don't play in MP so I don't know for sure, but multiple comments say it works.
BruteTerror reported that the AllowCustomObjectsInMP option works for real MP sessions (game version 03.03.16).
Krupnoklipac reported having the truck spawn menu open when the host disconnects crashes the game.
Q-Do all players need to have it in multiplayer?
A-According to the comments, for most features no. However:
When playing MP, the value for ShowLockedTrucksAtSelectionScreen must be the same for all players, otherwise funny bugs appear (wrong trucks are loaded, etc) and custom mods will not be downloaded.
Q-Does it work with the editor?
A-DebugMode,SuspensionFix,TireDeformationFix,UnpresetWheels, SupportAdditionalConstraints, and UnclampedXML features work with the editor.
You will have to disable all other features or it will crash.
The installation process is the same as for playing, but in the editor's folder.
Q-Does it work with the legacy version?
A-I don't know. This mod doesn't officially support Legacy ST, however some options might still work.
Q-Does it work with the mail.ru version
A-I do not have the mail.ru variant, and I'm not going to buy the game twice, so I do not know.
In theory some options should work (dunno which), and some most likely don't, like those related to steam or multiplayer.
Q-AntTweakBar?? Do you install a toolbar in my browser?
A-No, not every "bar" in the world is a browser toolbar. AntTweakBar is the menu manager to handle the startup addon selection menu. For more info consult: http://anttweakbar.s...eforge.net/doc/
Q(?)-HELP IT CRASHES !!
A-Disable all features, then enable them one by one (you need to restart the game between each try) and report what feature(s) cause a crash. Then play without it/them until the next ST+ update.
Q-What if my problem isn't listed here?
A-Please post about it in the "support thread" and not in the review section.
