How can the AI driver and/ team names be updated if no VEH files exists within the MAS file? I downloaded a few custom skins today and noticed the driver is "<NameOfSkinHere> #1" and so forth. When I unpacked the mas files, the only thing within them were DDS files. What am I missing? Is the only way to update for custom skins through creation of "virtual rides" as discussed HERE? If that's the case, then I assume I can only edit the specific AI in game as well.https://www.racedepartment.com/threads/rfactor-2-change-ai-names.101816/)?

Any help is appreciated as I'm new to rF2 modding. I've just been playing with the S397 stuff thus far.

Thanks.

When there is just a skin,(dds file) then you probably have to load the skin as an alternate on the Tuning Screen. (the big giant hangar) There you can add names and car number etc
