Important !!! if you are using vanilla AC, I think you have to install this, otherwise car with crash and go back to AC menu

Time for an long overdue update!

Complete overhaul of tires ( based on what we learned on BMW ) plus suspension tweaks for even better handling, tweaking and overal polishing.

new functionality added !!
- hiBeams / LoBeams switching available ( 'L' key )
- wiper animation
- driver & gear stick shifting animation ( sadly, it's limited how it can be done, so hopefully this is a good compromise)
- adding extension folder ( for Custom Shader Patch) that adds lights functionality ( sidemarkers, reverse light)
- car & textures optimizations, tweaks and cleanups

New skins from Skyline Design included as a part of the base package

Car is setup to be at the edge of the minimum allowed ride height, make sure you use tire blankets are on to pass the test
We do recommend you to delete all the previous files for a clean install, just keep your skins

please report any issues you come across, so that we can quickly fix everything for the weekend release of the BMW

And here it is, it took way too long and I think it could still take too long , so we have decided to release it instead and see what you guys have to say,

don't consider this final version, I'm anticipating that based on feedback we will try to adjust it some, and also once we have more super tourers ready, they will be sharing certain things such as tires, so it will all have to be re-balanced some

but hopefully this update brings fully functional car to some of you who had various issues with sounds and what not

and as always, please let us know if you think somethings is broken/not right etc.

here is a change list
updating physics to V10 tires
-tweaks on cockpit meshes/shaders
-tweaks to tire shaders ( tires are now darker and have the RF/LF, RR/LR markings on them)
-updated backfires
-fixing crew/driver suits textures / updating them to new driver model from Kunos
-W-I-P meshes for engine & boot ( openable in showroom with 0 and 1)

recommend to backup old car and remove everything entirely and copy over new car (and include fonts)
Probably not complain for most, but the car in the archive was directly in the content folder, missing "cars" subfolder, that is fixed now

also small tweaks to sounds by Fonsecker

you do not necessary have to re-download it, becuase changes vs 05a are small
this is mostly for new people who might be confused by missing of the car folder

it was also brought up that the brake balance adjustment in cockpit didn't work - it did work for me so no issue there
full package update
- new sounds
- fixes and tweaks on model and textures
- new high detail interior
- new driver animations
- new UI preview images
- new crew textures
- additional skin

still WIP on physics, pending updates which will be postponed after AC patch 1.5

you can delete your old car or replace all files with these ( don't forget to backup skins)

there is now new texture, INT_metalDetail.dds, that controls color of the interior. You can also change color of seatbelts.
Just have a look into one of the skins folder

enjoy and please report any issues

full package update
fix on sound and aero.ini so that the mod works with AC version 1.1, which got broken after update
- minor fixes and tweaks
- new UI preview images, matching new style by Kunos
This time around , after few negative feedback, I'm including full car in the pack, feel free to delete entire car from your AC folder ( backup your additional skins though! )

Important update !!!
you are now able to properly paint the front headlight glass covers, and achieve better effects. Texture is now bigger which allowed for no overlapping, however not possible to do non-symmetrical designs
Also car has now option to use metallic shader, it is controlled by alpha channel in the main texture

other updates
- includes fix for min height setup failure
- tweaks/fixes on liveries
- added team liveries + driver suits
- improved driver animation ( still needs additional fix) big thanks to @themeco for his driver rig
- more work on interior ( and still more to come)
- texture on brake calipers
- overal fixes and improvements
- wiper animation
- sound included in the package

still using Kunos sound, looking for sound guy
this is a sound fix update,
latest version of AC 1.06 RC has broken external audio in replays, replacing files with files from this archive will fix it

this file only contains the sound fix, you still need the original file, that you can find in version history
