    SUPPORT STOPPED
    ACTools will be able to do all this much more efficiently. You can download it here: http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/actools-cars-manager.6518/


    Hi everyone,

    The point of this is to obtain better integration of the mods in the game, using black background previews for skins, nice previews and maps for tracks, and accurate json files.

    Elements currently included:
    • Historic (real life) skins:
      • folder name set as "year_team" or sometimes "year_sponsor"
      • preview (v1.1 ready)
      • json file with names of drivers, nationality and name of team
    • Fictional skins:
      • preview (v1.1 ready)
      • sometimes json file if justified (otherwise, you can easily create you own json file with your name as driver using softwares like notepad++)
    • Cars:
      • Mclaren logo without black background
    • Tracks:
      • reworked previews
      • json files include correct length, width, units etc
      • json files include correct geo tags (resulting in a more realistic lighting in game)
      • duplicate country tags removed, and tags reworked overall
    Content to be included in the future:
    • Cars:
      • vehicles classes & tags reworked
      • descriptions reworked when needed
      • logos improved when needed
      • correct name for all cars, including the brand (example: "Chevrolet Corvette" instead of "Corvette")
    • Your suggestion?
    These are only for mods that I have installed.

    This will still cover a lot of content, mostly historic skins as that's what I'm into most of all. It will therefore take time for me to release everything. Expect constant updates to add content.

    You might see in here mods you like and wonder where to download them. You can ask, but to be honest I've installed these over months and chances are I don't even remember where I found them. Still, most of them can be found on RaceDepartment or the official forums. Do your own research. ;)

    Modders: if you recognise a mod you made in these and want to use the files, please feel free to do so.

    If you want to easily manage your skins, there are two very usefull tools that you should check out:

    I would also like to thank the_meco for his amazing studio black showroom.

      Thank you. Currently working on adding the GPS coordinates to all the tracks that don't have it, whether they're original or mods. That means: more realistic lighting!

    That mod can make a lot of mess in your menu if you install everything. Mod author should give instructions to install only previews for skins which you've already installed. Otherwise you'll have a lot of skins in the menu but not in-game.

      I thought it was rather obvious looking at the file structure, but I will add some warnings on the next versions. Sorry for the mess in your game files ^^

      Thanks :) The way I see it, there won't really be any final version since I plan on keeping adding content when I find new mods I like ^^
