Hey, the guages are pretty awesome! However, I have a reccomendation: Try to add a digital speedometer, or for analog guages, based on the car, you could make the speedo go up to 200. But btw, awesome mod!

Yea, I noticed too - that it just maxes out quickly if you're driving something fast. The next one will have a digital speedo.

Hi Adrian,

Turns out I forgot to add some files necessary for this mod to work - sorry about that, already uploaded an update and once it's approved it will show up on here.

You have to navigate to where you have Rigs of Rods installed. The folder where RoR.exe is. You can normally do this by right-clicking on the game shortcut, and selecting "Open file location".

You will find a "resources" folder in there, open it, and you will find a file called "dashboards.zip" or just "dashboards" in there. Make a copy of it, and rename it to "dashboards_backup".

Open the mod you downloaded (flat-black analog gauges.zip), and open dashboards.zip

In "flat-black analog gauges.zip", open "add_to_dashboards_zip" folder, select all files, and drag them over with your mouse to dashboards.zip.

You can use WinRAR or 7-zip or even File Explorer on your PC.

The drag-and-drop method won't work if you use File Explorer. You will have to make a new folder somewhere (e.g. on your Desktop) and extract the files there, and them add them to dashboards.zip

Confusing, I know, that's why I tried to keep the instructions short
