Stars on trucks? why?

it seems it is only on the starter vehicles on the normal maps.

so far people i have seen talking about this and people i have talked with find it quite ugly and a mistake with the coding or something when the DLC was released. if it is on purpose then just what is this about anyway?

I haven't those when started new map, but on already finished, yes.
To me it looks like your "record" on map, how many stars you needed to finish it - fewer is cooler 🙂

idk, still i do not like it. is there a way to remove it? or shall i start digging? lol

1 star is the best. That simple.

Oh, so this is what it meant..i just thought it was a nice soviet era star paintjob
I personally like the red star. It has a certain specific feeling to the vehicles origin and location of the game

tbh i dont mind red star but i dont get the point why is it there XD maybe in mp it will show others that u have finished map in 1 red start

well it may look cool to some, but i do not like it and think it is ugly as sin.

rain for me all day, so i guess i will spend some time looking for this. any opinions on where to find this in the files? lol

hot dog, no more stars for me. i am happy. i did not realize it was going to be so easy. i thought for sure there was going to be some coding or something. nope, just erase the image (not delete) the gui_star__d_a.dds and replace back into the texture zip.

however this is the same image that shows for the balance point stars when selecting a map. which is something i can totally deal with. lol

I like the stars and hope they stay.

The 4 or 5 tiny stars are immersion breaking for me.
I wouldn't have a problem if it was a big red star paintjob.

I don't like it but if they going to keep it, the stars should be on both sides not only on the driver side.

Thats what I did, I haven't played the new map wasted an hour to remove the stars ☺

Anyway, I love this game

@mr-t Apart from that facelifted grill which just doesn`t look good

Hello.
Im using only certified trucks and cars. Since i found this subject Im passing all certified maps with only one star. My question is. Can you guys pass this river on Deluge map with certified one star wehicule?

@pawel
Search up YT, I am pretty sure there are some vids about "how to pass Deluge with one star only".
But because it is mostly based on "throw UAZ into a river and then wait until it hits proper shore" I am not sure if that is what you are looking for...

@Pawel There is a way to cross in the middle of the map. Took me a while to find it bit its there. Pay attention to the small islands. It was the most enjoyable map to 1 star because of the difficulty. Wish i had more maps to explore on ps4! @Sodoma Have you ever played the Blackwater canyon mod map?

@simhunt77
Not yet, but name sounds familiar...
Probably famous map for some reason?

@Sodoma
Blackwater Canyon is an incredibly well done map, but I haven't seen a copy that's compatible with the new game version... 😕

@sodoma well, blackwater was one of the first map makers (leaked tools era) and for that time was considered as the best for off road/trailing maps. blackwater canyon was considered as pretty much his best map for the time it was created. although any maps out there now are not uploaded from him. seems a few people had the bright idea (aka, ripped) to upload, convert and even change some of his maps already, which can be found on "questionable" third party sites out there.

@Sodoma Well the map looks super fun, long, and difficult. Alot of what console players of the game are looking for. Thanks for a great game! Looking forward to more content!

Hopefully Blackwater_CA is still watching from somewhere and decides to convert it for the workshop... 🤞
