    Hey Scotty,
    You need to place them in a new folder under UserData titled "MOD Name of VEH Folder" with an "alt" at the end of your .dds file name. This method is being reviewed and what you learn now will most likely change very soon, please also note that every MOD you skin would most likely have a different file name structure...

    Example- Using the CLIO

    The default file path for Renault Clio is-

    rFactor/installed/vehicles and the file name is called- "Renault_Clio".

    This has the default skins (MAS Files). You must add a file named "Renault_Clio" to this file path-

    Factor/UserData/player/Settings/(new file)Renault_Clio/(new file)Clio_12

    "Clio_12" is the car number #12, place your skins in here and name them like this-
    "Clio_12alt.dds" (for your skin) and
    "Clio_12altWINDOW" (for your window) and
    "Clio_12altextra0" (for your rims)

    Go to single player and select Renault Clio MOD with car #12/ Tuning and scroll through to your car where you see "Car Paint"

    Hope this helps!

    Has everyone noticed the 'create dir' button on the skins page in the UI? Very handy :)

    How can we assign skins for the AI cars? Do we have to make veh. files and make vmod?

    Is there a way to add more cars of a specific type to the game to run the AI?

    Thanks
