    Guide for F1 70's Style: How to create custom cars

    1. go to the human driver car from the mod
    2. create a new virtual ride car
    3. save it with the name of the car
    4. make the adjustments in the upgrades area
    5. use the painting template provided by Chief matching the layers with the the upgrades chosen

    -S397 official guide https://docs.studio-397.com/users-guide/how-to-paint-a-car-with-the-new-material-system

    -Template for all parts, the Carbody is always the same for all cars, when you look at the showroom every part from the car have a Description, it have the same name as the layer in the template.
    the mirror, rollbar, and rims is also the same for all cars.
    Please paint 5 - 6 pixels bigger as the layer is

    Guide for F1 70's Style: How to release your custom cars

    Now for release you cars to the public
    you need your .dds, .json and .veh files for each car you have made
    [​IMG]

    for .veh file you can use one of original .veh file of the mod (verify tire brand in Graphics string) , then copy and edit it
    you need to edit .veh name and this values
    [​IMG]

    "GenString" indicate the upgrades selected for your car
    you have to open F1_70_UPGRADES.INI and take note of what value of upgrades you need
    example
    [​IMG]

    finished all, you can pack your work in a .mas file and then release it
    (in .mas you could also add icons and .rcd files if you want)
    and for working just copy your .mas in ....rfactor2/installed/veichles/f170/0.94/ folder

    Great stuff Mauro this will help more people make these cars.

    Note the upgrade ini image in Mauro post is an image of an upgrade ini I hacked so it was easier to find the gen string groups for each number for example the number “4” is not in the original upgrade ini file there are nine numbers in the gen string which corresponds to the nine sections in the upgrade ini starting from the top. if anyone is interested in a copy of my hacked file to use as a reference I am happy to post it here...

    good luck creating cars :)

    Maybe in future updates of the mod, in upgrades.ini Chief could insert something like this:
    //1'
    //2'
    //3'
    //4'
    .....
    .....
    //9'

    Before genstring groups
    It could be very useful

    Maybe I can ask for your help.
    In the game (not devmod) I created a test car under "human driver" and it works fine, car and skin.
    Now I have followed the instructions by Mauro to bring it to devmod (maybe I will be able to create an f1 season) and I have created / copied the files including the missing dds etc
    Then I also created the .veh

    By starting the devmod, however, I have a problem: the car is all white; or better: driver and helmet and tires ok, but the whole "painted" part (ie the parts of the skin, but also the wheel rims) are completely white ...

    I discovered that the problem is due to "MaterialOverride =" xxxx.json "; if I put the file name of an already existing one (for example ligier 77), the car is ok, with the colors of the skin defined by me etc, but if I use my json (which if I understand it is created automatically when the car is created, right?) then I only have white for all car + rims

    Well, I have to say that rfactor2 is still new for me, I do not have the modding know-how, but when I found this great mod I decided to invest time in rfactor2; the “material override” topic is not clear to me at all ... I would like to know more about it but if my goal is to create one or more F1 season series (of 70's F1 cars) with this mod, should I care about that or just "make it simple" and use any of the other "Materialoverride" files already defined in the mod without any problem for my new cars ?
