    Does selecting/assigning a skin for an AI driver for a particular track is possible ? Or does AI stick to the default skin?

    In rf1 we could assing a skin to a track. In rf2 we can choose skins variants, how can we apply this choice to other AI cars? Like non tabbaco for german/english/french f1 gp in the 90's?

    Thanks

    If you are making the mod yourself it is possible - if you are doing an addon skin then I'm not so sure it possible. We refrained from doing it as you have to duplicate every skin assigned to a car in a similar way to rF1. There are downsides to this though with the new material files and json files. So like in rF1 you have the names assigned to a track but you have to duplicate parts and rename even if they are exactly the same at each track.

    Thanks for the answer. I am trying to do it in developer mode.
    I tried to do the "rf1 way" with tracklivery="event_name,skin" but it never worked. The default skin is always used.

    How do you manage to make it work in rf2 developper mode ? It's not like in rf1 were these special skins are in fact working as the custom skins in rf2?
    F1 mods like f1 1991 by f1asr would greatly benefit form it

    Thanks

    Let me check as I know when we were experimenting on a way we did come up with some alternatives for addons rather than the rF1 way as we didn't want to add a lot of skins. I'll try and document outside of this and run through for you over the weekend and I will recheck the old rF1 way as I thought that worked last time we tried.

    Unfortunately, I only know about rf1, and it could be done there, but in rf2, I can't tell you about the skins. By the way, I hate skins in games! I have loved CS 1.6 since childhood, and I have never got tired of this game. When cs go came out with skins, it made me very sad. After all, the game turns into a business! People spend money on different sites like skinsmonkey.com to buy some rare skin. Traders use this and do everything to sell this thing to you more expensive. In short, I do not like skins. I am always for classic models and so on. I hope someone was interested in my opinion. I'm sorry if I didn't help.
