    Thanks for the mod, looks fabulous and I think it's a great idea.
    However, are you sure about this part:

    Strongly Suggested: Install Good and bad weathers 3.0 by Peter Boese for custom weathers and Natural Graphics Mod 3.8 by Chris Kennedy for standard weathers.

    ...cause even Chris himself has recommend not mixing those two mods together -
    ?

    Thank you for this mod. It looks great. If I install it, will I have a choice of (for example) two Monzas: one in autumn and one original? Or will I have to uninstall the app to go back to the original?

    You'll have to un/reinstall it to swap between texture sets, but that's why the OP suggested using JSGME, which makes that process pretty painless.

    Or, install the autumn textures, then copy all of the tracks, then uninstall. You'll have to do some UI management renaming the Autumn versions, and it costs a fair bit of disk space, but if you have it... (I have plenty of space, so I did that with the Monza and Nords winter mods.)

    Thanks! If you install Good and bad weather First, than delete the 7 standard weathers in the weather folder and install Natural Graphics mod, It is possibile to use the standard weathers enhanced by Natural Graphics mod, and use the custom ones (GnB) with content manager offline. I used "mid clear" from Natural Mod with Natural Photomode HC ppfilter for every shot in the screenshots section, except for the darker one of the RBRing, taken with GnB weathers and filter.

    Be aware that Natural Graphics Mod is a slightly colder filter than the optimum autumn season (i think is great for standard tracks though) and you might want to edit It a little bit as suggested in the mod thread to get the best out of Autumn textures.

    Also, you can use Content Manager cm_skins method. You just have to copy parent track's UI files, add 2 lines to new .json file, and it will work with just these extra files nestled in the skins folder, switching back/forth with CM UI.
    Good work BTW. I only got to try Spa and Monza last night, but they looked nice. And it's that time of year anyway. :)

    Small suggestion: Not sure what those purple flowers on the Nord' are, but if they are a Spring/Summer flower, maybe make them brown?

    Is there a tutorial somewhere on how to do this exactly? Sounds just like what I'm looking for in terms of convenience :)

    I think I saw it in one of the Content Manager threads here or in official AC forum. Try searching "cm_skins".

    You can see it in CM itself - About a programm - Tips - Track Skins
    (maybe name of menu a little different, i use non-english version, sorry)

    {
    "name": "Autumn and Real Billboards",
    "description": "Autumn and Real Billboards and Stuff",
    "id": "nurburgring_rbs_autumn", - must be the same as folder name with autumn textures
    "track": "ks_nurburgring", - must be the same as kn.5 file name
    "tags": [
    "real"
    ],
    "categories": [
    "Real Billboards",
    "session"
    ],
    "priority": 10.0,
    "version": "1.13",
    "author": "JW Modding and Albs",
    "url": null,
    "country": ""
    }
    For ex. my folder structure:
    ks_nurburgring - skins - cm_skins - nurburgring_rbs_autumn (put autumn textures for Nurburgring here)

    I found it, it's in CM in the About\Important Tips section. Thank you both! :thumbsup:

    Edit: CM even has a tool for that in the content/tracks section that generates the folders, preview and .json file for you. You only have to copy the texture files in the end. Works like a charm :)

    Curious about your screen shots, what are your settings? Your AA is very fine, the reflections look much more realistic than mine, general lighting? Do you use AC stock filters and settings?
