You edit XTD's by opening then on the "XTD Editor program" and then extract that certain image and then edit it with photoshop but i think for your photoshop you will have to download a "DDS" plugin.

Thats pretty much what I do every time. It worked for loading screens,hud,sky and all that. But i try for these two files it just fails horribly

What exactly happens when you edit these textures ? does it freeze apon loading or when you get near the vehicle ?

During loading screens. Sometimes it wont even get that far it will fail when installing. Ive noticed that when i replace a dds some other files look all ****ed up could this be the prob

Yes indeed it is a problem. Try using another "ISO" or you might just need to use a clean vehicles.img and then try. If i was you i would get a clean vehicles.img and edit the mule.xtd and then put it back in and then give it a try.

So what I did was extracted mule_signs_1.dds first then I replaced mule_signs.dds witch is the modded one. Then mule_signs_1 got all ****ed up. So I replaced it with the mule_signs_1.dds that I extracted first and then mule_signs_4.dds got ****ed. So I just restarted and took a fresh mule.xtd. I extracted mule_signs_1.dds and mule_signs_4.dds replaced mule_signs.dds witch is the actual modded one. Then replaced mule_signs_1.dds then mule_signs_4.dds and it looks all good you think it will work. if u even know what i said lol
