    Greetings all - Below you will find relevant information on the new user livery override feature (custom livery system) along with links to car templates.

    Intro & system scope

    What it does...

    • The user livery override system allows users the ability to override default liveries without the need to extract game files.
    • Not all textures need to be provided by the user. Any missing textures will use the texture defined in the base livery.
    • Effects local install only and is multiplayer compatible.
    What it doesn't...
    • It does not provide a mechanism to add extra liveries, e.g. if the car has 12 liveries in game, you can only replace those 12 liveries.
    • It does not provide a mechanism to add new AI drivers.
    • It does not provide a mechanism to assign drivers to liveries.

    Adding your skins

    Navigate to Automobilista 2\Vehicles\Textures\CustomLiveries\Overrides\ you will find _dist.xml files/folders for all cars currently in AMS2.

    As you will see once you open these files in your editor of choice, these xml files include steps for preparing said files (naming, file structure examples, thumbnail previews etc)

    Templates

    Right click - save link as

    I have a bunch of Blender files i used for viewing skins, so that is a start. No doubt we'll get into that task for all cars early in the new year.

    So this isn't a livery creation tool in game? This may be good for some people but if it requires work outside of the game and doesn't add liveries to cars with only one or two liveries ATM it won't help me or I would assume many others, just those who make liveries already, which is probably a good start but more will be needed in the future to make it accessible for the average user.

    Will we have the option to change other parts of the car like windows and wheels in the future?

    "What it doesn't...
    • It does not provide a mechanism to add extra liveries, e.g. if the car has 12 liveries in game, you can only replace those 12 liveries.
    • It does not provide a mechanism to add new AI drivers.
    • It does not provide a mechanism to assign drivers to liveries."
    Is this looking to be added later down the pipeline, similar to the prequel?

    The main thing for me is the cars with 1 to 3 liveries! There needs more per class than just 1 or 3 :confused:

    Agree with you that only being able to replace existing liveries is quite limiting.
    The biggest problem at the moment, is repeating liveries for classes that only have a small number available, ruins immersion.

    I don't think they need to be created in game though. Live For Speed (as an example) only provides templates, and has thousands of user created skins available.

    I'd love for AMS2 to allow creation of AI drivers, and be able to name them, assign them to a team, assign them a skin and even other properties like skill and aggression.

    It can be done by modding the game atm.
    For the average user, it's a pain to do it, I think it's not too much work to Reiza make it available through the override .xml and include extra things like wheels skin.

    thanks.

    we hope that in the future it will be possible to create new pilots and that customized skins can be viewed online.

    I agree. Customized skins being viewed on multiplayer would be very nice.

    And thanks, Reiza, for making things easier for the skins artists.

    Hi, just finished my Custom livery on PS with the template provided. I've saved as DDS file with the PS plugin. Its my first time attempting this sort of thing and I'm now stuck. Can someone please explain the next steps to me real slow pls? ie where to put what and if I need to edit the .xml file and where it goes after. I'm sure it's something really silly I'm missing here.

    Sonic, I'm confused by it also.

    I'm a visual learner so hopefully someone will do a tutorial video soon.

    Is there currently a way to paint different materials on the cars (matte, chrome etc.) like with spec maps on iRacing? If not, are there plans in the future to support this?

    Download any Automobilista 2 skins from Racedepartament and look what they did.
    Write down the installation tips.
    Open their xml file whit a xml editor (X-XMLCopyEditor - The Portable Freeware Collection) and change their dds files names to your dds files names.
