Synopsis

Donut Mod 2 is the second version of Donut Mod from way back in February 2014.

We're now open sourcing it so our newer players can learn where it all started and look back at our earliest work as a team.

We do not recommend using this mod as a template, as this mod has inherit flaws with how it works.

Changelogs

2.0.4 Changelog
  • Fixed an issue on L1M7 where a debug output was shown on screen

FAQ

What's up with all of the unused files in this version?
These are the remnants of unfinished content from this version of the mod. There is no plans to restore this content in this release and there are there purely for preservation purposes. If you're interested in restoring any of it yourself, feel free to do so.

Why does it crash before/during/after _________?
Donut Mod 2 is a highly unstable mod. We've done our best to restore the mod faithfully and make it possible to play without crashing, but because of how Donut Mod 2 works, this is incredibly difficult to verify.

Report any problems with as much details as possible.

Why did Donut Team choose to remove this mod in the past?
Donut Mod 2 is something at the time we were very proud of, but quickly began to hate due to how it was developed and the amount of randomness that caused missions to be difficult to learn and play.

We made several mistakes in DM2:
  • Missions have too much variance, causing players to have difficulties learning routes and how to play the mission.
  • Mission variance also makes it so us as developers have difficulty tracking down bugs when something happens. This is because multiple parts of the mission can be completely random, so you may get 8 cans of cola to collect, but the health of the vehicle you're destroying is absurdly high.
  • We used an incorrect file path format that causes corruption in early days. Nowadays, we're able to use CustomLimits to avoid this corruption.
  • We're using too much memory with certain files causing corruption. Nowadays, we're able to use CustomLimits to avoid this corruption.

The reason we're willing to share it now is because we feel while it was a complete disaster of development, it is an important stepping stone in our history.

Hi, I had a quick gameplay in the last days, however, I found some leftover things that could be quickly fixed into a final build 2.0.5:

  • In the initial "loading saved game files" screen in the downer-right part there is a leftover yellow border frame that is totally out of place. I tried to remove it on my own but I still can't figure out how.
  • The version number on top of the the pause menu and in the initial "loading saved game files" still shows version 2.0.3.
  • Flanders' Station Wagon uses the DM3 model, but the phonebooth icon and the shop preview still show the DM2 version. I suggest just quickly replacing it with the original variant of the vehicle instead, which still stays in the files. The DM2 variant also has a camera issue that makes the far camera look like the near camera.
  • Finally, the Classic Family Sedan phonebooth icon looked horrible (😂) and thus I made it a bit better, stretching and polishing it, even though it still has lower quality than other icons, as the un-edited one. Here is the icon I made:

- Normal
- Damaged

Hope not to be boring/obsessing with my perfectionism (😂), and have a nice day!
The version number on top of the the pause menu and in the initial "loading saved game files" still shows version 2.0.3.

You must have downloaded the version we pushed by accident. I believe we re-uploaded 2.0.4 with this fixed, however if it is still like that, i'll take another look.
Okay, thanks, I downloaded the mod again and the problem is fixed.
