READ THIS BEFORE DOWNLOAD PLEASE
- VERY IMPORTANT! YOU NEED CSP + 0.1.60 in order to get this working.

- THIS CANNOT BE SEEN IN THE CM SHOWROOM (I will try to manage to do this this soon)
-STAY TUNED TO GET THE LAST UPDATES (AND HOTFIXES IF THERE IS)

-PLEASE DON'T DRAG THIS INTO CONTENT MANAGER. YOU HAVE TO INSTALL THIS MANUALLY.

HOW TO INSTALL: Drop 'scoop.kn5' and 'ext_config.ini' into the livery folder you want this. The main texture (scoop.dds) must be also in the same folder.



Indycar began to use this as a desperate way to cool drivers inside the aeroscreen. They are mandatory to use it in the race (practice and qualy is optional), specially at the street courses (where they get low average speeds).

This device is a complexity machine created by the human and it's hard to explain... not really. Jokes aside, the car just move and the air redirect inside the cockpit (scoop effect).

The 3d model is not 100% accurate. I'd say that is not even 75% but because I don't have any top quality image that show it's real shape. Just did it with some front images and the onboard camera. It looks big but actually, the way we see it in the onboard is modified by the fish eye lens that reduce it size apparently. I tried to do it the more looking and useful (technically speaking) way. However, I will try to update this (the same I do with my other add-ons) along the time, improving the 3d model and fixing glitches.

Everyone is allowed to use this add-on for their liveries whenever they credit me. Also, if you want to use this for RSS Formula Americas 2020, you can adapt it for that car by changing offset coordinates, the car .kn5 name and the mesh name that it's linked, in the ext_config.ini file. The texture template is a mess. I'm not an expert of this so I tried to do all I could. If you have any problem with it, let me know. Remember that the main texture is "scoop.dds".

I will try to do the other prototypes of this aeroscreen scoop that exists.

If there are bugs, glitches or if you have any sugerence, feel free to write it in the Discussion tab.
