    I've always just set the wheelbase and wheel track then used Racer's modeler to correct the size of the body by eyeball. (I think you have to scale it down to like 0.98 or something like that)

    You talking about this scale tool function ? Or you scale car in Modeler.exe ?

    Thanks for information. One more question about .dof file. Sometimes i can't open car .dof file in Zmodeler 1. Program just crashed. Strange is that i can open this part in Modeler and it's show normal. There is only export .wrl file format and where i can open it ? Or it's possible somehow to open this .dof file another program and export it again ? So strange i have this problem very often.

    Hello. Want to ask about sky... It's possible to change it ? I don't know how it's done but it's looks awesome :)

    Yep pretty easy to change it.

    Just don't use the standard Racer sky system and use large static textures, and then create correcting lighting and rendering values for everything in the scene so it all 'matches' together nicely.


    I'll release some stuff soon for things like this, just it takes quite a bit of time to get it working nicely for the latest Panthera/Racer versions.

    I've got it pretty much working for RC5c but no one seems to use that version any more... and the latest Panthera has some key features either missing or buggy so no go there for now :(

    Will it work for RC4 or RC6 ? I use RC4. I'm waiting for Racer version.

    Hey there,

    I think it probably would work for those versions too.

    If you download the 'asphalt' track (pretty sure it's still available via the thread), then you can use the sky.dof and sky shader, and texture as a reference for how to then add a similar sky to a track of your choice.
    You can then just grab textures and tweak to suit your needs from cgskies.com... the JPG samples are pretty ok for most purposes!

    sure, why not?
    you need the wireframe pic and paint it, then put it into the car.shd file...if the material and texture name match your model it should work...
