    RDLMS S1 - Old briefing threads (merged)

    Sign up rules:

    Only Team Owners can enter a team. Individual drivers cannot sign up! If you are not a member of a racing team you can form your own by creating a post here

    All entered drivers need to have an approved RD Racing Club membership, click here to get one for free!

    In RDLMS each team is represented by one car with multiple drivers and a team owner. In case a certain team wants to enter several cars (with either the same of different team owners) this is allowed, however with a maximum of one car per class (P1, P2, GT1, GT2). A driver can only be in one car per race, so the same driver cannot compete in different classes during one race.
    Team owners must, upon entry, provide at least the name of the team, name of the team owner, the car of choice and the first two drivers. The rest of the drivers may be added later (notify me by a private message, click here). There is a minimum of 2 and maximum of 6 drivers per car, per race.

    Entry link removed as the signup lists are now full!!

    RDLMS Skin Guide

    For the RDLMS skins we will use the most simple and quickest way possible to put your cars into rFactor.

    There is no need for .veh files in rFactor, and to make our life easier we will not use the .veh files or assign car numbers needed to do so. Without them we have a skin pack half the size of what it would be, a much easier skin creation procedure and no chance of any mismatches on race day.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Instructions

    Go to your rFactor install folder, and to the team folder of the car you will be using for RDLMS Round 1.

    As our example we use the Courage C65 - 06ALMS BK Motorsport Car:

    [​IMG]


    And then, inside that folder make a folder called “SKINS”

    Within that folder put your DDS file of your skin in there and name it the name of your team as entered in the entry list thread. Now in the “SKINS” folder create a new .txt document and call it your team name, (exactly the same as your dds file)

    [​IMG]



    Put the text below inside the .txt file and fill in the necessary data (highlighted in bold) and save:

    // EnduRacers - Endurance Series
    // EnduRacers © 2009
    // v1.0

    Description="Your Team Name"

    ===================
    RDLMS 09/10
    ===================
    “You’re Team Name”
    ===================
    EnduRacers
    ===================
    Painter=" "
    Template By:"Herve Thomas"
    3D Model By:"Yoann Rageot"
    EnduRacers © 2007


    Now that is done, your car should be working in game if you followed the simple steps above.

    To see your car, go in game and to the team you will use, so for this example we got to the ALMS 2006 BK Motorsports car, and then go to the “Skins” section and your team name will be visible there, click that and there is your car.


    [​IMG]


    To add, windows, rims & driver's suits, make a Misc folder inside the Skins folder and place the extra files in the Misc folder.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    To submit your files we need to know your team name, class / car and the default team folder you are submitting your skin for.

    Example for our guide skin above:

    - Your Team: DHR GP 2
    - Class: P2
    - Car: Courage C65
    - Default Team Folder: 06ALMS_BK Motorsport


    Submit your “SKINS” folder in the teams folder in a .Zip with the information needed to this email: skinsubmission@googlemail.com


    Skindeadline Round 6: August 7 2010

    This is the example skin file:

    To Be Announced is one of the most challenging tracks available for endurance racing :D

    On a serious note, we have a lot of tracks in mind already and i think we need to test them in a few racing club events soon'ish.

    On a few tracks i have spotted some showstoppers, so they need some more additional testing. Not to mention the driver swapping :D
