Cannot use new boats!

Post by AnimalThunder »

I have been trying to use new boats in the game, but there is no "Boats" folder in the program files folder of Vsk5Online as well as the MyDocuments folder. I have looked everywhere but I cannot find out how to resolve this. Please Help :?:

I've checked that out, but it still does not answer my question. There is no "Boats" folder ANYWHERE. Only in the "Skins" folder and as a .PAK file. There is no folder in which I can put boats in. Also, none of the posts I've seen answers my question yet.

The installer will create a boats folder. Just run the installer which you will have saved to your PC anywhere that is convenient for you.

When you run the installer, there will be a window showing the destination of the ffiles. If it is going to put the files in 32nd America's Cup and you have the version vsk5Online, you will need to change the destination address to that version.

There shoyuld be no need to find or manually create a boats folder if you are using an installer

Camster is correct, the actual "Custom Models" are not installed to program files they are installed to your "Documents\VSK5Online" folder.
This is where many people get it wrong!
