    @Wolfgang Herold how can you run a discord specifically for people who are interested in creating skins and respond to a perfectly valid question on the subject in that manner? It's pretty poor form to be honest. If you're actually hoping to grow a community you might want to start putting a little more thought into your responses.

    Is there a template for the Formula V10 Gen 1 car? It's missing from the list.

    Totaly wrong.
    This was the answer to a guy who wrote " Can anybody make a video. I'm a visual guy."
    This is lazy and poor, because if you ask nice, there will be someone here for you who will help.
    Though the hints in the first post should be enough :p
    I also added my first help here...
    NEW CUSTOM LIVERY SYSTEM - AMS2 V1.0.6.2 +
    and if you have a little bit of brain you'll understand what to do. If not, forget it.

    BTW. Thanks for calling me a Pro, but some do forget, that the most effort to get there is hard work, reading and investigating, trail & error and sweat.
    Thats why i call the typical "give me" people LAZY

    When you use quotation marks you should at least actually quote the person in question and not just word it to fit how you decided to interpret what they said. There's a big difference between what was originally written "I'm a visual learner so hopefully someone will do a tutorial video soon." and what you wrote "Can anybody make a video. I'm a visual guy."

    Regardless of who you were replying to, neither post warrants being belittled in that manner.

    As above, doesn't matter who you intended on replying to its a poor show... There are millions of tutorial videos and millions who use them to gain a new skill. Also think you need to read things more clearly, I never called you a pro....

    The spec and fresnel maps are currently disabled in all cars.
    Matte and chrome can only be done by modding the game at the moment through a kinda long process.

    I guess what ideally should happen in future updates, is for each livery 'pack'(along with it's xml file)to be contained inside it's own folder within the main folder of each car, where they can be then selected from a vertical list, like the tracks currently are.
    This would also preserve the default liveries from being overwritten, as they would always be the first livery folder(for each car) in the list.

    So, if you have downloaded three livery packs for the Formula V12(1993, 1994 & 1995 for example), you could have them all available for selection in-game(only one pack at a time), as well as the default liveries.

    The best system would be liveries stored on steam workshop, w/ unique identifiers and automatic up/download if you don't have it in your library. Then everyone could drive his own best or ugliest livery and everyone on track could see it ;)

    I made a powershell script to produce the xml file, every livery needs its own folder under the main car-override folder, with a livery-file and a preview-file, preview file must be called *preview*

    It's not really user friendly and I think you need some knowledge of powershell, but it saves me a lot of work. I share it with anyone who knows how to use it


    # Every livery needs its own folder as child of the main car livery folder with a preview image called *preview*
    # ..\steamapps\common\Automobilista 2\Vehicles\Textures\CustomLiveries\Overrides\fusca_copa\Herbie

    $application = New-Object -ComObject Shell.Application
    $path_car = ($application.BrowseForFolder(0, 'Select the Main Car folder in Overrides', 0)).Self.Path
    $path_car
    $Car = $path_car.Split('\')[-1]
    $Car
    $Test = Test-Path $path_car\$Car.xml
    $Test
    # If ($Test -eq $True) {Write-Host "$Car already exist"}
    Add-Content -Path $path_car\$Car.xml '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>'
    Add-Content -Path $path_car\$Car.xml '<USER_OVERRIDES>'
    Add-Content -Path $path_car\$Car.xml ""
    do{
    $path_skin = ($application.BrowseForFolder(0, 'Select a Skin folder for the car to add', 0, $path_car)).Self.Path
    $path_skin
    $livery = Read-Host 'What is the number of this livery?'
    $name = Read-Host 'What is the Name?'
    $name
    # Add-Content -Path $path\$Car.xml "<LIVERY_OVERRIDE LIVERY="$livery" NAME="$name" BASELIVERY="Default">"
    # Add-Content -Path $path\$Car.xml $name
    $line1 = '<LIVERY_OVERRIDE LIVERY="'
    $line1 += $livery
    $line1 += '" NAME="'
    $line1 += $name
    $line1 += '" BASELIVERY="Default">'
    $line1
    Add-Content -Path $path_car\$Car.xml $line1
    $Car_skin = $path_skin.Split('\')[-1]
    $Car_skin
    #select skin preview image
    $preview_file = Get-ChildItem $path_skin -Include *preview* -name -Recurse -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
    $preview_file
    #select Car skin
    $livery_file = Get-ChildItem $path_skin -Exclude *preview* -name -Recurse -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
    $livery_file
    $line2 = '<PREVIEWIMAGE PATH="'
    $line2 += $Car_skin
    $line2 += '\'
    $line2 += $preview_file
    $line2 += '" />'
    $line2
    Add-Content -Path $path_car\$Car.xml $line2
    $line3 = '<TEXTURE NAME="BODY" PATH="'
    $line3 += $Car_skin
    $line3 += '\'
    $line3 += $livery_file
    $line3 += '" />'
    $line3
    Add-Content -Path $path_car\$Car.xml $line3
    Add-Content -Path $path_car\$Car.xml '</LIVERY_OVERRIDE>'
    Add-Content -Path $path_car\$Car.xml ""
    $response = read-host "Add another Skin?"
    }
    while ($response -eq "Y")
    Add-Content -Path $path_car\$Car.xml '</USER_OVERRIDES>'

    Pleeeease Reiza, give the full „pencilcase“ to the skinners.

    this could be seen as not that important, but plz see the great „marketing“ effect having a great tool for „representing“, in ANY ways. Paired with an awesome replay-system (maybe having options and tools like never-seen-before) :po_O

    THE place for livery artists, screenshot gurus, and maybe even video cutting guys. ;):)
