    There is no need to separate skins from the rest of the files to do that. We have been using ISI/S397 vehicles for years already. I have been using incremental updates for skins since we started organizing rF2 races. Having the original teams with the rest of the files is no issue for that.

    When you create a vmod you select the cars that you want, skipping the official ones if you wish.

    Reason could be that rF2 does not allow for multiple cars sharing the same number, you'd end up with doublets or unselectable cars/teams in the league packages.

    Incorrect.
    When you create a skinpack for a league you can choose whichever name for the veh. You simply have to avoid reusing the existing original names.

    In my case I use a template to fully automatize this process. All vehicle and livery names are codified specifically.

    ah yeah, makes sense :p Maybe a translator could have helped me, but lazy. In dutch it's tow-eye (sleepoog). Anyway, at least you got what I meant :p (maybe more from the picture though)

    ah, language barrier playing up here ;) I personally like the one with the extra red more, but it's allways great to give choices :D

    and think I forgot to say, but I think they look nice


    EDIT :: and sorry for double-post, missed that the post I had just placed was in this same thread

    Yes I know, you kindly suggested me to do so, I tried it, and it works (the only problem is that way of doing things, making an update and then a Vmod is above IT capabilities of 99 % of RF2 users). And with the next update of the car, you will need to redo the whole process.

    The fact it is a pay mode with copy protection, makes an already technical process (I repackage with my teams to avoid seeing most of the ugly skins - in my view, your appreciation may vary - of ISI-S397 base offerings), even more complex.

    If the car package didn't come with teams (would end in /installed as now), and skins' mas in /user/settings, users could replace or edit team files, to add a car a similar mechanism to the used for virtual drives (but with vehicle directories already created in order to ease the process).

    Or something like that, with a special mechanism for leagues.

    Cheers.

    At the moment I will only do races against the Bentley, Merc and Corvette because those are the only ones which have a single skin. As soon as I add maclaren and radical it just becomes a field of 80% maclarens/radical because of all those WFG skins and radical has 4. If we're not getting extra skins with each car I think they should be reduced to just 1 apiece so that the field is evenly distributed.
    So I'll probably just start using the AMGT3 mod for racing against to at least have a nice variety of skins and cars which I'm sure is not the sort of thing S397 wants people to start doing.

    For a paid dlc, I have to say it's disappointing it shipped like this when it would be easy to see the issue when testing. I hope they rectify this soon and we see a nice update with a couple skins per car. Would very much appreciate an answer from S397 on their plans.

    Agree very much - and hope performance of the GT3 pack will be improved significantly as well.

    This has already been heavily covered in the GT3 Pack Release Thread, in the meantime all I do is start a Race Weekend with 29AI - remove the excess McLarens and add the other cars until I get an even spread. Yes it's a bit of a faff but that's just the way it is right now, S397 are well aware of our feedback regarding the lack of Skins/VEH.

    Dear team of Studio 397, when you release car as payware would you do the same with some tracks still missing in RF2? For example Surfers Paradise, Edmonton? Are you working on any tracks at all? I ask because I would pay for tracks with the quality you already showed.
