    Hello!
    [​IMG]


    I was giving the make a skin thing a try. And I ain't any good so, I wonder if anyone can finish this is the same style I started, or something to do it better. So here the start is in full size: http://www5.picturepush.com/photo/a/4996163/img/Picture-Box/hoonda.jpeg
    The file is saved as jpeg, but easy save do it to dds with: save as/write the name, and change the picture type.

    Any help is appreciated!

    A jpeg isn't much good because it lacks all the layers that are in the usual templates. (dirt, shading, parts, etc) It means you'll be painting over all that detail, which results in a car which looks very bright and odd when in-game.

    Ok, I may wrote wrong. Because what I meant is, this is the paint here layer. The rest is in the teamplate that are in your program files.

    Hi Erik, have you checked out my Skinning Tutorial yet?

    It only uses open source software, and covers all the basics. Might help you out!

    Erik, what exactly are you going for on that skin? Did you want the Red Bull decal to appear correctly, or were you wanting it to look like it was missing parts?

    Hmm, I've changed it a bit now. But the plan is to make it near this:

    Will put something together and post it and see how you like it. Might take a couple of days to get it done though.

    The writing on the bonnet needs to be flipped. The writting on the right side needs to be flipped. Only the bonnet requires mirrored.

    Other than that, nice work man :)

    That's what my template looks like. If it looked like the others, I'd have a Honda skin in my garage!
    So, I'll wait with you :rolleyes:

    Yes I see that too. I turned on all the layers and it still looks basically like that. There are skins so there will be answers coming soon!

    Hey Till,

    while this might not sound like an ideal solution, may I suggest trying to use Paint.NET (+PSD plugin)? I've just tried opening both the Honda and BMW skin (downloaded from our resources) with Paint.NET and they opened fine, shading included - if you'd like to continue using GIMP, maybe just re-save the file and then switch back to GIMP, might already help :)

    hi,
    thanks for such a fast answer :) and it helped. I downloaded Paint.NET and the Plugin. After that i resaved the template-file with Paint.NET and i opened it with GIMP, and it worked :)
    Thanks so much

    If you still want to use GIMP, try moving the shading layer out on its own. On some car templates the shading layer is in the wrong group and doesn't show properly
