I've always found the templates provided by kunos to be very basic, so I tend to make my own templates with various layers for things like base color, secondary color, decals, etc. Here's a screenshot of what my template looks like:
RD_MX5_Cup.png


*** PLEASE NOTE THE V1.1 UPDATE A FEW POSTS DOWN ***
The zip, which contains the XCF for Gimp and PSD for Photoshop, is here: http://esotic.com/media/RD_MX5_CUP.zip

You can quickly change the base and secondary colors using a fill. The numbers on the doors would need to be rotated before you export it out for use in AC. It shouldn't take anymore more than 10 or 20 minutes to make a skin using this file.

Cheers,

Dave/Esotic

Thanks very much!
You're welcome!

Not sure if I'll be participating, but I always like to encourage MX-5 Cup races. :)

I made a small update to the template and separated the monochrome decals from the full color decals, that way you can bucket fill the layer with the monochrome decals if you want them to be white so they'll show up well on a darker color.

Anybody interested in a Nyan Cat livery? Please excuse my love of internet oddities. :)

I would take it, I'm still searching for a livery.
I'm also a bit into this retro sh*t (hobby wise), not extraordinary but keeping my C= Comp. clean, alive, ready. Such stuff.. .
So that cat (because it appeared in some retro demos as far as I know, as well) would fit. Well, apart from that pink background.. (haha).

I would put my racing number onto it by myself then, after recieving a dl link.

The Zip that contains Gimp and PSD files is here:
http://esotic.com/media/nyancat_mx5cup.zip

Each "star" has been put into it's own layer, so you can duplicate them and put them wherever you like on the livery. Feel free to modify it as you see fit.

Here's the Wiki Page for Nyan Cat:

BumbleBee inspired livery (flight of the bumblebee, the autobot, and the actual insect):

PSD Zip for V1.1 is here:
http://esotic.com/media/bumblebee_V1.1.zip

V1.1 PSD layers are fixed (according to Gimp) and the color has been orangered. I edit PSDs on my Note 4 using LayerPaint HD and often forget that it doesn't export clipping/mask layers correctly.

All the graphics are in layers that can be hidden/adjusted.

Download for base skin (mediafire) -Hires
