If custom skins are allowed, I'd be happy to make some for teams who are taking part :)
I hope you don't mind me asking, would it be much trouble to put a number 12 on the no 5 Aston Martin Vantage GTE ?
No other change needed, but it would just be nice to personalize it slightly with a different number as there may be several Astons out there :)

I completely understand if it's not worth the bother, as I'm aware the files have to be packed, edited and unpacked.

Thanks for considering it

When must the skins be submitted? Is there something planned?
There will not be a skin pack created for this event, so there is no submission deadline. Drivers can simply join the server with a custom skin, if they wish.

I need a solution:
Every time someone use custom skins in online races, i see yellow coffins on wheels instead of cars. Is it possible to fix this issue?

Just to make you all aware, as I've been following the team that created the DPi cars.

There is a fault in the Acura that is due to be fixed at the next update.

Apologies as I can't remember the exact figures but in the engine.ini files the fuel estimate was incorrect for the Acura.

The Mazda and Caddy were about 0.78 to 0.98. The Acura was 1.98 so the fuel accuracy information was way out of sync with the other two. So I let the team know.

The team have corrected it for the next update (which in fairness may have already been uploaded) but just wanted to share this in case anyone notices the problem.

My guess (I'm no RF2 expert from a physics side) is that the estimate is the way the sim tells you how many laps you may have left? As there is a fuel usage line as well. Which may be the reason why there are some negative comments on the Steam page for this car.

They are a small group of developers so mistakes can happen, and it's free so can't complain too much.

I can confirm that custom skins are allowed. :thumbsup:
Sorry for the noob questions here - if I use a custom skin, do I have to upload it anywhere, or do I just go ahead and use it?
What do other drivers see when they are around my car, if they do not have my skin downloaded?

Thanks

No, you do not need to upload you custom skin. You simply need to select it via the Tuning menu (once you have selected your car) before joining the server. You can find guides for creating and loading custom skins here and here. I hope this helps. Your custom skin will then be automatically uploaded to the server when you join, and automatically downloaded by other drivers (if they have the setting enabled) when they join the server.

What do other drivers see when they are around my car, if they do not have my skin downloaded?
Other drivers will see what appears to be a yellow box on wheels. Once they return to the garage menu, if they have the option to download custom skins enabled the your skin will be downloaded and become visible. (Some drivers may even have a setting enabled to download the skin right away, even while they are driving, in which case they would see your custom skin without having to return to the garage menu.)

Thanks for taking the time to reply. I've done many years of offline racing but only a little online, so much of this is new to me.
