    Are you using a unique driver name? If you use the same name for 2 cars, only one will appear unfortunately... This behavior came with the new materials, that's pretty annoying. I wish it could be possible to fix that...

    i think is correct:

    //[[gMa1.002f (c)2016 ]] [[ ]]
    GT3
    {
    Hubert Haupt
    {
    Team = Black Falcon Team
    Component = Mercedes_AMG_GT3_2017
    Skin = alt_merc06.dds
    VehFile = MAXERU2C0BAAAC.VEH
    Description = Mercedes AMG GT3 #06
    Number = 06
    }
    }

    There's some glitch, post above is the probable cause. If you make a vmod with only the Mercedes in it, you should be able to see it.

    if you have created the name of the driver, another car with the same name, you will not see it,

    even though i had no other car with the name Hubert Haupt it seems that the problem was the name. i used "H Haupt" and now it works

    one question: the albedo layer how should it be used? should it be activated or not? i noticed that if I activate it, the colors are opaque, and the region levels work poorly

    If it's what I think you're talking about, it's so the car doesn't glow when it gets really bright.

    if you don't put it on, the brightness is excessive, they look really bad, I don't miss the albedo, something did wrong if you lose it, the albedo is a filter so it doesn't shine and looks bad in the factor
    It's what Coutie told you

    To add to what they already said, look at the whites in your second image, look how they are bright and flat, that layer control this, and yes you must use it.
    If that changes the other colors too much, you can always adjust them to look how they are supposed to be, in your case for example you can tweak the blue in order to make it look like in the second image.

    You don't have to use it in the region map, region colors must be the same as the originals.
