  1. Idea: Shall we have different skins on the two cars this season?

    i.e. different window banner color and mirror colors to separate the cars

    Reason: Make it easier to distinguish between cars on PSRTV
     
  2. Good idea John. Yes the teams with A and B team should make diferent skins to be distingish.

    It is DHR, Flat Out and DMSv.
     
  3. Think John means the 2 cars in one team.

    Skins for our 2 teams will be always different as its 2 different cars ;) ;)
     
  4. Tom is right.

    For us (FO and DHR) it would be 4 skins.

    For example

    1 DMSv GT40. DMSv red livery, Red window banner, Red wing mirrors
    1 DMSv GT40. DMSv red livery, Yellow window banner, Yellow wing mirrors
    1 DMSv BMW. DMSv green livery, Red window banner, Red wing mirrors
    1 DMSv BMW. DMSv green livery, Yellow window banner, Yellow wing mirrors

    That way commentators and viewers can easily see which car is which in the broadcast
     
  5. I'm agree too, it should be interesting to have a minor difference between the 2 car in the same team :smile:

    Very good idea!
     
  7. And at signup every Driver must choose Skin A or Skin B
     

  8. Yes, In order to make it work it has to be annonced in the race thread not only WHO is going to drive (and reserves) but also which marker color he will use
    (if we cant agree on them..)
     
  9. The best i think is to restrict the color change on specific part of the car. I mean only mirror + banner (maybe wheels...) for example, in order to keep the identity of the team car.
     
  10. i agree. plus to stipulate colors in order to have all teams mark their cars in the same way
     
  11. Banner and Mirror colours have to be diferent between same team cars.
     
  12. brought that up ages ago, as it will help with the commentary. it's awfully difficult to identify the car behind or just in front of the guy the camera is following (he will have his name on the screen, so no probs there). I am all for it.
     
  13. Now that the cars are different to some degree I thought about an important thing. When you give STC your teams drivers for the event can you please type which car he is in so that the commentators know from the start who is in which car and doesn't have to go through them all when entering the server?

    Examples:
    The Black Rebels
    Black: Ivo Simons
    Yellow: Gregory Degreef

    Blue Flag Racing:
    Blue: Mikael Larsson
    White: Konrad Stanczak
     
  14. team

    @Andreas: that was the post I was going to write tonight :) talk of a well-functioning team. Don't have access to TBR website atm, but we should get together in the next few days to start planning the broadcast.
     
  15. Hehe, I'm one step ahead of you, Eck ;) And I bet Xosé can fix so that you can enter the staff forum again.
