Use this thread to ask your skinning questions, share pictures, and talk anything skin related!

Everyone who is on the entry list can submit a skin. Each car can have its own livery. If you cannot skin a car yourself we encourage you to find somebody who can. Use this thread to find one of those great artists that can help you out.

alt_XX.dds ==> Mainbody template
alt_XXDRIVER.dds ==> Driver suit
alt_XXHELMET.DDS ==> Helmet

If you're unable to create your own, or employ the services of a helpful modder, we are also supplying RaceDepartment skins for you to choose (Send a PM telling your livery of choice). These will then be customized accordingly to reflect your name, number and nationality.

Which one is the league logo then
Also I think you meant 12th of May, not April.

PS: Can I put the mandatory Racedepartment logo on my helmet (above the visor ish)?

League logo is now on the OP and date is corrected.

Regarding the logo, you can put it wherever you want, but it is mandatory to have at least one in the top of the airbox. I'll provide some screenshots to clarify it:).

Keep in mind that the oval front and rear wings are different, so we need to put additional RD logos and/or numbers on the cars.

How do you guys get that painted Helmets & Bodys into the game, and where to find the correct Templates? Think i found the helmet here: http://rfactor.net/web/rf2/devscorner/ is it the 2014 file?
But where to find the Body? Is it possible to get official Links beside the cars Template link?

@Marc

The folder structure is a bit important. for example, this is how I named the skins to make them work. Don't really understand how it works, but the car skin has to be called "altCarnumber", the helmet "altCarnumberHELMET" and the driver "altCarnumberDRIVER" or something to that effect.

@Matheus Machado

Complete skin templates: https://www.dropbox.com/s/u03xwpae4v18csq/DW12.zip?dl=0
alt_XX.dds ==> Mainbody template
alt_XXDRIVER.dds ==> Driver suit
alt_XXHELMET.DDS ==> Helmet
alt_XXEXTRA8.dds ==> Car number on the steering wheel
alt_XXEXTRA9.dds ==> Car number on the car

replace the XX with your car number.

BTW: You don't need to repack the car just to add skins with a car numner and a team name. :)
