I have a question regarding the tires. If I replace the default files under the car's extension folder, will it replace all the tires for all liveries of the RSS FH 2021? I'm afraid to overwrite those files. Are they only graphic changes for the tires or something more?

You can backup the default files first. Though you can always re-download the mod to get the original files. They are just textures though, purely visual with no effect on tire physics, it's entirely different files that do that.
 
Hey looks great, but content manager say car not supported?

So about your 4K skin. The main body texture is indeed 4096x4096, but the file weight is 4 times that of a DXT5 compressed 4096x4096 .dds. And the reflection map is 8K. Whole skin is 236mb when you could trim it to about 50mb with next to zero loss of visual quality.

I don't know, guess I just need to get used to the fact that I can't ever again just download a skin and use it, I need to scale and compress the .dds's myself since skinmakers won't do that anymore for some reason. At least I can do that, just sucks for those who don't have the tools and know-how for that

That's why I created the discord server, maybe we can talk about it there:)

I believe I have said all there is to say. Btw this skin is superb work aside from the issues I have pointed out

You know the green area that was in the first version? It was saved via DXT5, to solve that problem I had to change the setting, as for the map file, I will solve it in the next update

Quick question. Why is there a giant Team Viewer logo on the side of the car?
As far as I know they are not a Mercedes sponsor

Hi !

Great work, thank you so much but I got an annoying problem here with the last two updates, the previews (with CM) and the two cars still black in game.

The last good one version was the update 2.1 here.

Did you changed the DXT compression or something like this ?

By the way, thanks a lot for sharing your time and your talent. ;)

Hi ! :)

All my apologies for the late answer and thank you for your kindness.

Your skin in CM, before my own preview


The result with the two last versions of the skin


My own preview with the 2.1 version of your skin, your two last versions gave me the "black issue".


Obviously in the game, the car stills black as shown with the preview.

I wish you a good day. ;)
