Skins
« on: November 23, 2007, 02:24:57 am »
Seeing as we will all be in the same car for the whole season how about each having our own custom skin??
Is this too much of a hassle?
Some very very nice skins at nogrip
Obviously would mean everyone would need to install the skins
Giz any thoughts on this one?

 :yep:

Skins would be very cool, but maybe pain for the admin and guys who just jump in for single races.

 :?:

If it can be done... :hats off:

Rusty has put his hand up for the Lister.

He is keen for skins as am I.


Definately gives the sime a more realistic feel if we all have ownership of a car.


They have a program that automatically down loads them for ya at me other club, noice stuff.  But befort that, you choose ya skin,  then skins were submited to management, they collated them and then ya downloaded the lot to ya teams folder.  Was a good deal but I dont know how much trouble it is for manageme

Its quite simple actually,well apart from compiling skins and making a custom .gdb that doesnt interfere with exsiting cars. Miguel has become quite adept at this thru some trial and error, sure hed be more than willing to lend a hand.

If Giz approves, i have nothing against making a pack.
We do have a system thought for GTR2, so its about getting started with it.. we test and review all the cars.
and rather no .gdb, making standalones is the way to go.

i have no objections at all about this as long as it is done in an organized fashion so everybody is on the same page  so go for it it is time we got some personal touches into GTR2 as i now see it will be used regular  :salute: big thumbs up from me

Ok im going to start a thread where you can post cars you want. I make you work a bit for it ;)

What to post there:

1.Make sure you have permission from the author. (to pack and host)
2.Include download link
3.Cars must be standalone cars
4.Preferably add a screenie
5. Remember to post authors name and any special needs he might have (some want us to add link to installer etc.)

Now that part 1 is very important, be sure to ask permission from the author, we dont want to get to trouble..

Heres the GTR2 CAR REQUEST THREAD.

SJ_DP,

If a skin is posted on No Grip, for example, is it not by default available to be used without getting permession?   :?:

I assumed thats why they put them there.

TA,

RAy.

Nope, that wont automatically give permission to host it anywhere else, or add to a carpack.

Another Lister

Lads,

Rusty has whipped up a cool paint job in the back shed for his Lister, looks SHIT HOT!!!

Problems is how do you submit to this forum?

He can't put up a pickie like me, seems we are both digitally challenged.

Awaiting advice,   :think:


Ray.

You can email it to me or Jarkko ([SJ]Drunken_Predator).

I'm at: byron@simjunkies.org.  Jarkko is something similar, but with his name on.

Not yet.. It will take its time, can be quite long too. First off i dont release a pack without proper amount of SJ painters work.. and also we have decided to release the new carpacks with more content than before.. we used to put in much less cars than its planned now.. so i hope everyone has patience enough.

Nope, it means we need to get painters motivated to paint some nice cars to add to the pack. :)

Oh yeah heres the thread to post your car requests to, if not posted there chances are im going to miss it, since i cannot read everything on the forum, makes it easy for me to keep on track of things. :)
