Terrific work, Ole! Thank you. Will this new skin make me any faster?The way I chill out and relax these days seems to be when I make some liveries. Zen moments! So, inspired by the quick talk last Thursday about making "classic liveries", I had my Zen-moment tonight Cars based on classic racing colours found on Motorsport Memorial, and a couple that I found no info about, so had to make something up.
@Daniel Kornblum (because I forgot that you made your own) - DL Link
@Stig Bidstrup - DL Link
@newbert - DL Link
@Denis Betty - DL Link (wanted to give you more than just BRG, so added the BRM touch)
@max1966i - DL Link Scottish, based on Rob Walker
@Rui F. Martins - DL Link I was very surprised when I saw that Portuguese colors were red/white!
@Redvaliant - DL Link - Irish being unique, having a band around the car!
@Victor Jimenez - DL Link (Alonso-number, made your car before I started using sign-up numbers)
@Kresh - DL Link - No historic racing colors for Albania, so I made my idea of it. (also made your car before I started using sign up numbers, used the one from your avatar)
To use liveries in game:
Choose a car in game(remember the number on the car). Click tuning/customize, and "create dir".
Find the created folder in: Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\UserData\player\Settings\Brabham_1966\BT20_(number on car)
Unpack zip-file. Paste the dds file there, and choose it on tuning/customize in game. Voila!
As always. I don't expect any of you to use them, and don't feel like you have to either. As I said, it is my way of relaxing, chilling and clear my mind. And this was pretty fun as well
I wish, either faster or less spinning!Terrific work, Ole! Thank you. Will this new skin make me any faster?
Unfortunately I can't get this to work.
I chose the slot for Car #2 so created the "BT20_2" sub-directory as you instructed. I downloaded and unpacked the zip-file for my car (#10), then moved that file into the "BT2-_2" sub-directory. But now I don't see where to choose it in game. I see "Tuning" but I don't see "Customize" anywhere.
Can you help me out?
Meanwhile I'll keep practicing with the stock skin.
Alright Bert.Thank you Ole, I've got it sorted out now. (The arrows under "variant" are so light-colored as to almost be invisible to my eye.)
Now, that said -- Can anyone help me out with a tip or two to arrive at a stable set up? I've already played with the gearing, lowered the ride height to minimum and minimized tire pressures. But I'm often sliding out of control in turns 1 and 2 and on the last turn before the S/F line. I can't seem to correct the slide once it starts - I end up over-correcting.
I played a lot of GPL back in the day, so developed a light touch on both throttle and brake - much to my detriment in modern sims. I thought that my driving style would help me to at least survive in this particular race, but it doesn't seem so. (This car/track combo in GPL has lots more grip and "controllability" than it does here... )
I believe Colin Chapman had something to say about this?Setting up suspension can become quite tricky and i´m the oppinion, that you need to do much more laps to see if a change is positive or negative.
Great post!Hope it helps and looking forward seeing you on track!!
