rFactor 2 community member Sven Hielscher aka FuNK! has created a wonderfully composed tutorial for those interested in skinning cars using free software GIMP and Inkscape. Many community members (myself included) have an interest in creating our own custom skins for our favourite sim cars but simply don't know where to start. Many are put off by the often confusing information available on the internet or simply concerned that expensive software packages are required to create that perfect paint job...
In response to a fellow ISI community member asking for some help with his own project, FuNK! has put together this interesting and informative step by step tutorial to aid anyone who wishes to make the jump into the world of car painting in rFactor 2.
Great news for the cost conscious members of the sim racing world, Sven's tutorial document makes use of the free to download and use GIMP and Inkscape programmes, allowing literally anyone to access the tools and knowledge required to make their own virtual paint schemes in game.
