    I modded both helmet and driver, and both work fine for me with Marussia and Formula ISI 2012, haven't tried on others yet, as I'm into practicing those two cars atm.

    for reference, my skin is named as such:

    AltPA-1.dds
    AltPA-1DRIVER.dds
    AltPA-1HELMET.dds

    if the skin appears wrong (like wrong position for stuff), then you must have done something wrong with the psd or saved it with wrong parameters in the DDS plugin for Photoshop.

    If it doesn't appear, then you haven't named it correctly.

    Naming convention has changed nothing.

    Should I be saving the DRIVER template with different parameters?? I am using the exact same parameters that I have used for the dozen car skins that I've made and they work correctly..

    I have placed a car, helmet and driver skin in my 370z folder, all of the skins have been saved the same way, DXT5. All skins show up.

    However, drivers suit does not look right. I made no changes to original template EXCEPT, I put a number behind each word "Mystery" to see where it was showing up in game... so Mystery1, Mystery 2.

    You can see the shoes are white, gloves are black and white... should be black per the template, Mystery text obviously not showing up correctly.

    When placing the helmet and driver suit skins in my Megane folder along with it's working car skin, the car and helmet show up fine, the suit does not show up at all. I'm using the same naming conventions as my 370z.

    When I first tried it with the FISI 2012 and Marussia, I sort of assumed it worked, but I raced the Marussia yesterday, and closing up on the car revealed the driver suit was still the default of car 25.

    So it works perfect with the FISI 2012, without any glitches, but doesn't show up for the Marussia.

    Naming is all fine as well.

    Well, one of my friends over at CMS decided he was going to try and decipher the template layout and put far more effort into it than I was willing to. lol
    Here's what he discovered.

    I'm still wondering.... do these need to be saved with different parameters than the car skin?
    We are using the driver suit with the 370z. Helmets and skins appear correctly.

    I'm wondering if the suit works perfectly with some cars and not with others.
    @pleclair, was your FISI suit oriented properly?

    Yes, the driver and helmet appears fine on the fisi.

    The helmet works on the marussia but the driver suit is not appearing.

    Might have something to do with the extra also not working on the marussia. (ie the decals, numbers and driver name)

    Havent tested on other cars as of now.

    The template is not for 370z, they use differente UVW maping, maybe different texture, thats because you see it crazy.

    ISI should give us ALL the drivers templates, at least this is the first.

    We haven't been able to see each others skinned helmets or suits when racing online. Is that normal server behavior? Setting?

    Could we pretty please get the historic helmet template? All I really need is the UV unwrap. Could anyone do that? I don't have access to 3DS to get it myself. :(
