    Yeah I saw that but none for GTR EVO. Does it just improve the picture quality of the game?

    Cheers!

    That looks cool. The hard part is getting the right file. The readme is very confusing :)


    Can anyone help me with the GTR EVO one

    Sorry for my n00bness :)

    It's more simple if someone do an archive that you directly extract into the game folder in order to install the news cubemaps for all cars!

    It's necessary that you make a folder Teams (if you don't have) in this path \Steam\steamapps\<Your User>\race 07\Gamedata\Teams

    and put in this folder one of the 3 files (what you want)and rename it in EMAP.dds .

    If you want "more effect" , you can put club maps files and rename it in this way :

    EMAP.dds
    EMAP_ALUMINIUM.dds
    EMAP_CARBON.dds
    EMAP_CHROME.dds
    EMAP_COCKPIT_ALUMINIUM.dds
    EMAP_COCKPIT_CARBONE.dds
    EMAP_COCKPIT_CHROME.dds
    EMAP_COCKPIT_GLASS.dds
    EMAP_COCKPIT_INT_GLASS.dds
    EMAP_COCKPIT_PAINT.dds
    EMAP_COCKPIT_PLASTIC.dds
    EMAP_GLASS.dds
    EMAP_PAINT.dds
    EMAP_PLASTIC.dds
    EMAP_RIM.dds

    Ok thanks for that.

    So you make a lot of the same cubemap and make 10 different ones,. Each with a different ending? Or 10 different ones??

    Until someone completely explains how to make it work fully.

    Take the "CAR_CUBE_more shiny.dds" out of the by 6e66o folder and rename it "EMAP.dds".
    Then place it in \Steam\steamapps\<Your User>\race 07\Gamedata\Teams.

    It's not the full deal but the shine is much better :D

    10 Different, everyone is a part of file .gtr , if you take, for example in GTR2, 1 file .gtr of 1 car in folder Game Data /teams files , and open it with Geditor , you can find all 10 files :wave:
