    I've just taken my first steps into skinning, using GIMP. After reading the sticky I've tried to make a basic skin for the Flat6: just changing color would be ok for this.

    So I used the 4 psd files and I only changed the body so far: from the basic light blue to dark grey. After a while I managed to export the file correctly to a DDS file (or so it seems). The other files I've just exported to DDS.
    But after making the MAS-file and putting it into the correct folder, the garage still showed a light blue car.
    If I open the DDS file of the body it still shows the dark grey color. I've tried multiple times; even with changing the visibility of certain layers. It didn't make any difference.

    I wonder what causes this error. Can someone help me?

    Edit: nevermind. I found the answer after a lot of googling. The name of the mas file was wrong. It should be the same name as the filename for the body apparently.
