    Take it easy chrisi, the amount of likes and positive postings here and at racedepartment should make you realise that many many people are very thankful and happy for your great work!

    plz realise that and do not take it that personal.
    „****es Fell“ you need to put on. ;) (Edit: why censor a german word here? lol )

    Big thanks for all your great skins, and merry Christmas man! :cool:

    @Chrisi74 , and all the other Livery creators
    I would just like to say thank you for all the hard work you have put into making these skins, for myself and many others, I wouldn't have a clue how to make these amazing skins, they make the game far more enjoyable.

    I know its easier said than done, but don't let certain folk get to you, the vast majority of players are extremely grateful for the work you all put into these livery's.

    Many thanks to you all.

    Old/new story.
    Thats why i founded the TAMS2SP discord initially and now there are about 500 participants.
    I don't need an all over the place/all sims community on a toxic server.
    My intention is, that skinners work together and there are several packs created from people that share their work, not fight against others though they never met in real life.
    Its not team driven, not commercial, not overloaded from ads and its free.
    Just for you, the AMS2 community.
    Thanks to all and Merry Christmas and the best wishes for 2022.
    Stay save and healthy.
    Best regards/Liebe Grüße
    WOLF

    Reaching 2022 would be fine for the first step. :p:D;)

    and about the „old story“…, me had even the same talk once here with chrisi and wolf, because I was not a Fan of one skin. Hell, so what. ;) I still have respect and love other work by these artist.
    No problem, nobody loves everything. That should never de-motivate an artist.
    We are all humans, we all have opinions, and like I said, the overall reactions from the folks are so thankful and positive.

    Hey Christi,

    First of all, a Merry Christmas.

    Your news makes me very sad and I think many others too .. Your skins for the cart series are very popular and are even mentioned in many videos and are already legendary
    Please don't let assholes drag you down who just write nonsense and have no idea how much effort it takes to create something like that.
    Even if there had been cause for criticism, which I can't see in your work, the majority of users loved your skins for this series.
    At racedepartment there are more idiots than normal users. And they enjoy such work a lot. Please reconsider your decision and use the positive recessions as an opportunity to do so. For me you have created very excellent skins, with which I have a lot of joy. I thank you...

    Many greetings
    Micha

    Sorry.. My english is not the best...

    At RD, more than 1700 people have already downloaded the different versions of the pack which also got 80+ 5 star reviews, more than any other mod for AMS2.
    In general, users at RD are glad to have a site like this, where you can get so many mods for several games. There are just a few freaks who like to critizise without ever uploading a file themselves.

    You are right!
    But I will still publish updates or skins, logos etc. first on your TAMS2SP Discord page! After that I can publish it on Racedepartment. If there are things that contribute to the skinpack improvement or enhancement, this can then be done before the release on Racedeprtment.
    Sorry, I had made a massive translation error there!

    What edits to the xml files do we need to make? I'm all for as many contributors as possible, but there really needs to be one source that has everything, to avoid things like this, for ease of use, if nothing else.

    In this case, the car should replace the 2nd De la Penna car (#43) of Matsuda.

    1.
    Copy/paste the two dds-files (Cart43.dds and previewCart43.dds) to:
    ..\Steam\steamapps\common\Automobilista 2\Vehicles\Textures\CustomLiveries\Overrides\cart_swift_009c\Cart1998

    2.
    In ..\Steam\steamapps\common\Automobilista 2\Vehicles\Textures\CustomLiveries\Overrides\cart_swift_009c you find the xml-file for the vehicles (cart_swift_009c.xml). Open it with notepad and change the entry

    <LIVERY_OVERRIDE LIVERY="54" NAME="Della Penna Motorsports #43" BASELIVERY="Default">
    <PREVIEWIMAGE PATH="Cart1998\previewCart43.dds" />
    <TEXTURE NAME="BODY" PATH="Cart1998\Cart43.dds" />
    </LIVERY_OVERRIDE>

    to:

    <LIVERY_OVERRIDE LIVERY="54" NAME="Tasman Motorsports Group #21" BASELIVERY="Default">
    <PREVIEWIMAGE PATH="Cart1998\previewCart43.dds" />
    <TEXTURE NAME="BODY" PATH="Cart1998\Cart43.dds" />
    </LIVERY_OVERRIDE>


    Then save the file.


    3.
    Switch to the folder ...\Steam\steamapps\common\Automobilista 2\UserData\CustomAIDrivers
    and open the file F-USA_Gen2.xml
    Look for:
    <driver livery_name="Della Penna Motorsports #43">
    <name>Hideshi Matsuda</name>
    <country>JPN</country>


    change it to:

    <driver livery_name="Tasman Motorsports Group #21">
    <name>Tony Kanaan</name>
    <country>BRA</country>

    Do not forget to give the driver the performance you like, as Kanaan was much better than Matsuda in 1998.

    Save file and you are done.

    The Liveries were made by different modders and there are actually more cars than available slots in game. Therefore, the player/user can choose from different liveries but you can not install all of them due to limitation to 25 cars by the game itself.
    But if you have the files of Chrisi74, it is easy to change them to your liking and bring in the liveries you want to see in game. In the end, it is just about editing xml-files. ;)
