Best My Summer Car Mods

While there’s no real mod support from the developer, many players have taken it upon themselves to add their own touches to the game, enhancing or changing My Summer Car to fit their own tastes. The following are some of the best mods we’ve come across that you can try out for yourself.

Note: Some mods for My Summer Car are fairly extensive and perhaps not entirely stable, so always back up your saves and game files before testing these mods out for yourself.

Creator: ajanhallinta

MSTuner is an in-depth mod that allows you to change a ton of things about your car: engine stats, drivetrain, axles, and even the textures and models of individual sections of your car’s exterior.

Out of all of the mods on this list, however, MSTuner is probably the most unstable. Though it gives you nearly unlimited customization, there’s a high risk of corrupting your save game so back up your saves before playing around with this mod. With all the customization available, however, this mod is certainly worth it!

Game Save/Load Bot

Though shortcuts are nice, the Game Save/Load Bot takes saving games a couple of steps further. Ordinarily, My Summer Car only gives you one save file. This Bot — an external executable — lets you manage several saves at once and choose which one to load at any given time. It’s a truly nice feature if you want to start a new game but don’t want to lose that pretty show car you worked so hard on.

Quicksave and Quickload

Currently, My Summer Car‘s save function and load feature require you to go into your bathroom and *ahem* relieve yourself. Quicksave and Quickload gives you keyboard shortcuts, streamlining the whole process nicely. Bullet dodged.

MSC Mod Loader 0.2

MSC Mod Loader streamlines your modding, doing some of the grunt work for you. With the Mod Loader, all you have to do is drop the mod files you’ve downloaded into a folder and execute the program to patch the mods into your game.

Some mods do wild things, though, and Mod Loader can’t handle everything — so be sure to read the installation instructions on each mod carefully.
