Better Deformation + More Durable Cars 0.4b

What has been Changed: (0.4b)
-Increased Deformation Damage - instead 25% i tweaked it to about 15%/12%, 10%/8% for update cars.

What has been Changed: (0.4a)
-Tweaked Deformation Damage - 25% decrease from 7.0 to 5.75 for most cars to prevent vehicles from being undrivable after 1-2 hits. [Other cars from 6.5 to 5.25 and from 6.0 to 4.75]
-Sadly Rhino Tank don't have any deformation map so i needed to revert changes to that vehicle. Will it blend? NOPE.
-Added better readme.

What has Been Changed: (0.3b)
-Added several vehicles from update, they vary in deformation durability.
-Tweaked few standard vehicles like helis/planes to not insta explode after deformating.

What has Been Changed: (0.2)
-Added deformation to all missing non-dlc vehicles.
-Tweaked van vehicle category to be a bit more resistant to deformation.
-Lowered a bit Deformation Damage from 7.5 to 7.0 or 6.5/6.0/5.0 for some van cars.

What has Been Changed: (0.1c)
-Vehicle Deformation from 0.5/0.7/0.8 to 7.5 (some 7.25 or other similar variables)
-10 times more durable car engine 1 to 0.1

Using OpenIV 2.6, select update.rpf > common > data, enter Edit Mode, drag and drop the included handling.meta file, and close.

Also if you want update(dlc) vehicles put handling.meta from dlc folder to GTA V/update/update.rpf/common/data (only from 0.3b)

    I love this, but is there any plan to update this for other vehicles? The deformation is just right, but it doesn't apply to all vehicles!

    @Corinarh can you check and compare this mod with this damage fix
    In this ENB disabled limit to take damage. You mode just increase deformation, but some parts still restricted to be damageble. If you compare with this mod, you can damage everything that you want and it would be more awesome, than now.

    @Broavenger99 Vehicles don't explode in real life...
    Even if you put an explosive in them they still just aren't very volatile.

    I really like this mod, but franklins buffalo deforms WAY to easily. a simple low speed crash or bump on a hill will disable the front wheels.

    Does not work like the videos..
    Most cars I tested only get smashed above 200kph, downhill carshes or doing stunts.
    Gtav collision detection seems random or/and some cars are really hard to deform.

    @cpartak meant to reply to your post, not @adam27 's
    so once again:
    i think i got the same problem; i've tried every other deformation mod as well and i can see it working but then after 1-2 seconds the deformation disappears and the car gets back to normal. what can be the reason?

    the mod is great but everytime i try to play, the game starts to update which removes the mod. Is there anyway to make it work?

    Works really well, only complaint is that I still feel like the engines are too weak. Its nice to slam into the side of car, flattening it and sending it flying, but most of the time they just blow up instantly (even if im using a crappy car). Other than that It would be nice to see more cars deform, including DLC vehicles, but I understand some things just cannot be done.

    Im a noob and the install instructions seem to be for those that know how to mod this game. I have several update.rpf files, which file do I have to edit?
