    Custom Liveries (Car Skins)
    All teams or individual driver skins may be posted here.

    Using the default DTM skins implemented in the mod is encouraged for drivers without skins.
    If you are not able to create your own, there may be somebody who is willing to help provide you with one, or help you to convert it to the predetermined format. You may use this thread HERE to request.

    Skin Templates
    • Download You must leave all number plates and logos where they are set within the templates, only change the number to what you sign up with.
    Car Numbers
    Each driver may choose a personal number from 1 to 99, numbers shall be first come, first served.

    Mandatory File Format
    We shall be creating the external windows with your names and numbers for you. This means you do NOT need to create these, only the internal windows if you wish.
    Please make sure to follow these rules below when creating your skins:

    Folder and File Formats
    To prevent mini dumps or stability issues we will only allow skin entries in the following format:
    • Individual driver skins should be placed in a unique folder. Teams should have individual driver folders in the overall team folder.
    • Fixed skin format & configuration file (.ini )
    • Maximum Size 2.5 Mb Per Driver, 5mb per team. (Make sure before saving your body.dds to reduce the image size down to 1024x1024 to keep the file size low.)
    Example:

    Team Folder - SRP Example Team

    Driver(s) Folder - Andy Breedon, Rob Hermans

    Contents,
    - DTM2010 Body.dds
    - DTM2010 Windows Int.dds
    - DTM2010 Nameplate.dds
    -+size dependant
    -+size dependant
    -+size dependant
    - Netherlands result.tga
    - Netherlands menu.tga

    The configuration file (.ini)
    [[[SRP Example Team]]]
    [[Andy B]]
    [Audi A4 R14 DTM]
    body=
    windows=
    plate=
    driver=
    ext_driver=
    helmet=
    Menuflag=
    Ingameflag=

    [BMW M3 E92 DTM]
    body=
    driver=
    ext_driver=
    helmet=
    Menuflag=
    Ingameflag=

    [Mercedes-Benz C-Klasse W204 DTM]
    body=
    windows=
    wing=
    plate=
    driver=
    ext_driver=
    helmet=
    Menuflag=
    Ingameflag=

    Depending on what car you drive (which of the three is obvious):
    example:
    [[[SRP Example Team]]]
    [[Andy B]]
    [Mercedes-Benz C-Klasse W204 DTM]
    body=Andy_B_Merc_Body.dds
    windows=AB_Windows.dds
    plate=AB_pitplate.dds
    driver=
    ext_driver=
    helmet=
    Menuflag=england_menu.tga
    Ingameflag=england_result.tga

    NB driver, ext_driver and helmet are not needed, but can be added if you wish (providing your package does not exceed the maximum size.). The wing templates can not be found and are thus the same for everyone. Not or incorrectly filling in body, windows and plate will results in the default part being shown (e.g. "Numberplate=pitplateKV.dds" or "plate=" will show the numberplate of C Bakkerud in the Merc).

    Make sure you load and test your skins before uploading the files for us to compile the pack.

    Submission deadline is the 8th of October!

    For some reason the BMW skin does not wrap in the right way on the body:( (look pic)
    I did some test with Audi and Merc. Those work fine!
    Someone has the same issue? Any help is welcome:)

    I'll have a look, Davy.

    Davy is right, this template does not map to the 3D model correctly. Was Dinca working with a different model?:confused:

    I proved this by converting the image from his post HERE to a dds and got this:

    [IMG]

    I have a feeling that Dinca's starting point was the template for the BMW extreme or something, but the original template supplied with this car looks like this:

    [IMG]

    I did a test using a slightly different (but closer) template:

    and the result is this:

    I'd like to know how Dinca managed to get the skin to look correct, because I'm confused now!

    Guys,regarding BMW....the template dont fit on the preview BMW 3D objects because its not mapped for those objects.
    I`ve loaded the BMW objects in Max and remapped the hole car to a new template.
    Then replaced the original BMW with the remapped one.
    So it will not work untill you have the new BMW files.I am close on finish it and you guys will get the news from Andy. :)

    EDIT.
    You can still work on your template but you cant see it in game till the updated files.

    Errr...ok, it seems strange to release the template without giving us that information. :confused:

    With the BMW template still waiting, I don't think so (but I'm not sure :p)

    Andy is away until tonight, so you'll have to wait to get a definite answer. At a guess, I'd say that the first skin pack will be released prior to round 1.

    btw, the O-Sport skins look great, but the files are too large: the body skins are over 2.5Mb because they are still 2048x2048 - they will need resizing to 1024x1024 before they will be approved for the skin pack.
