    is it possible to add a second skin for one car? in rf you can create a folder with same name like the .veh file from the driver and add only "skins", but looks like this doesn't work in AMS

    sorry mate, I might be wrong about it ... I remember seeing mutliple drivers in one veh file but somehow I can`t find any example in AMS ... I take a look at it later, prehaps somebody else will figure it out ..

    I think it was not possible at the beginning but since we now can have upgrades, I was hoping it would become possible. I have not tried yet tho… Maybe you could have a look at the upgrades that some cars have now, and see if it can be used for skins as well?

    yes it works. Set the new skins in skin folder and add this line in .veh file : TrackLivery="Brands Hatch Grand Prix, Skins\decesaris10.dds" // use track.gdb - EventName

    Interesting, have you tested this Thierry ? Does it work for the AI-cars ?

    I have successfully tested it. But will confirm if it works also for AI. The // are just commentary used to remember me what name of track to use.

    I've tried to get this to work for EEC GT3 mod and it doesnt work and my line looks like
    TrackLivery="Misano World Circuit, Skins\14Corvette34.dds" with the separate skins folder and it still wont switch it.

    I can confirm that this does work, the way I did it is I made a seperate folder in the vehicles folder that you are trying to add another skin for - XXXXskins then go into veh file in that vehicles directory and add a similar line to this - TrackLivery="XXXX , XXXXskins\XXXX.dds" attached is some images as an example (this method also works for rfactor too if anyone is curious)

    Does this also work for AI cars ? This would be great news for the VASC-pack, we could then have trackspecific skinpacks per championship-race. We'll have to try this @NWRAP !

    PieterN, ChiefWiggum, yes it works for AI also. I have sent in PM a link to a private mod with multi skins.

    Just tried this with the liveries for round #10 of the 2016 Virgin Australia ChampionShip (Sandown), and it works ! I edited the 16_NIS_096_WOO_R01.veh file of the regular car (Dale Wood) and added TrackLivery="Sandown Raceway, 16_NIS_096_WOO_R10.dds" // use track.gdb - EventName

    When i select the Sandown track in game (just using the filter for the regular 2016 cars), the car-livery for Dale Wood switches to the special Retro livery !! Great stuff !

    I was just looking into this, I knew it worked back in rfactor so thought it would in AMS. The beauty of it is all the liveries are round correct and you don't end up with 2 x Winterbottoms on track at the same time, the down side is we don't have all the VASC tracks :(
