Hi Guys

Here are three more liveries to add to the grid. My plan was to upload seven but due to the mapping of this car I had to scrap the other four.

I just want to thank @Dragon60 for using the support section to indicate a problem with some of the other tire compounds that were available and also @Sil for confirming such.

Update details:

- Ride height adjustment ( visual only, does not affect physics)
- Tire file settings corrected with three compounds (Hard, Medium and Soft tires available)
- Castrol skin added (fictional)
- Jägermeister livery added (Rally Monte Carlo)
- Yellow Gold Forge Motor Sport alternative livery added
- New Series Icon added

Update notes:

- For some reason the ride height, rim sizes, springbase and other settings were not set properly for the other compounds available and this was making the wheels pop through the wheel arches permanently.
I have made the necessary changes to the tire file to fix this problem.



- There were also too many compounds available so I have deleted the medium-hard and medium-soft tire's. There are three tire compounds to choose from now. (Hard, Medium and Soft)

- I also increased the ride height slightly, which together with the new tire file sorts out the problem as seeing with above pic.

- Ride hide adjustment is visual only (will not affect physics)

- Unfortunately with tracks like Interlagos where I think it's turn four there is a invisible whole in the curb and riding over or into it will still cause the wheel to briefly pop through the wheel arch, otherwise the car rides perfectly.

- I have tested all three compounds with just a few laps each and everything seems to be in order. (Hopefully :), but let me know if there is a problem)

If you guys have any suggestions to help improve this mod your help would be appreciated.

Hi Guys

Here's another one of my crazy crossover liveries, still one of my favorites on a F1 car.
The result looks pretty good and adds another car to the grid.

Hope you guys like, have fun :)

I'm still waiting on a few more skins, hopefully these will come soon or otherwise I will make a few more to complete the grid.

With one of the next updates there will be some minor adjustments to the AI and some new AMS settings, just waiting on these files and as soon as I have them I will upload after testing them.
Just takes time as everybody also has day jobs and don't always have free time on the weekend or in the week.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

P.S. I'm posting the previous update here again for those who have not seeing the new skin and other updates that were made to the car with all the new ffb settings.

Update details:

- Kamei livery added
- ffb settings added
- vw_golf_mk1_Upgrades file added
- new hdv file
- veh. files edited

I have tested the ffb settings with a wheel and controller and have had no problem.

That said, myself and many others had no problems before but there were those few who had some issues with the ffb.

Hopefully this update will solve the ffb for you guys that had problems.

There are various settings available to choose from.

Should you want to make some adjustments and once you have loaded the car on track you can then edit the realfeel file settings found in AMS's main folder directory.

You can also make adjustments to the upgrades file of the car located in the vehicle's folder. (soft, normal, hard ffb esttings)

(Should show at the bottom of the file as shown below)

Hi Guys

Here we have the Kamei livery which is one of my favorites for this car.
This wasn't the easiest skin to do because there's no template, the car's mapping and also because of the large front and rear wheel arches.
I've done my best to get it as accurate as one possibly can and with out the decals looking distorted.

Hope you guys like, have fun:)

- Over the next few days there will be some more liveries added as soon as I recieve them and have completed more of my own one's to further increase the number of cars on the grid.

- There will also be some minor updates that will address problems with ffb for those few who having problems. New ffb settings and realfeel ini. with new veh. files will be added.

- Some more adjusments and settings will be added to the AI with AMS's latest features and other settings including minor sound tweaks to the sound.

I really appreciate all the comments and feedback recieved so far and hope that you guys are enjoying this little beast.

Hi Guys

I wasn't on planning to update so soon or until I had some more skins but I just had to share this one with you guys.

This is the first time I've done a Marlboro skin and I think the result looks super nice if a may say so.

Not the easiest livery to do when there's no template, a bit like putting a jigsaw puzzle together.

Hope you guys like and appreciate all the feedback and reviews so far, thank you!

Just a quick thank you to Sil for noticing a small issue with mirrors beeing inverted.

I was too focused on making the car look and sound good that I completely overlooked the mirrors.

Too be honest I didn't even noticed so feedback is always helpful and much appreciated.

I've asked someone to have a look as I don't have clue where to find these settings.

If anyone reading this now knows how to fix this your help is wanted.

Hi Guys

One of the three skins I did in the download (Forge Motorsport Special) was still in it's uncompressed format for higher quality. This I normally do when designing skins for better quality but this is much too high for AMS 32 Bit. Have made the changes in this update.

Update details:

- Correct Forge Motorsport skin size added (5.3mb instead of 21.3mb)
- Martini skin added
- New MOMO Prototipo steering wheel added
- Adjusted all the // ATTENUTATION sounds (much smoother through the gears and better sound quality)

EngineRange=80.0
EngineShape=0.90
EngineAmbient=2.00
ShiftRange=80.0
ShiftShape=0.90
ShiftAmbient=2.00
OtherRange=50.0
OtherShape=0.70
OtherAmbient=0.70

One thing I forgot to mention, for those that are interested making some skins, my only request is to keep it simple and classic.

Your typical 80's, 90's style liveries.

Not really interested in over the top graphics or any modern liveries.

Less is more here...

All help will be much appreciated, thank you!
