Is it for an established GTL Mod?

If it is you just need to copy an exisiting car folder, rename your rfactor skin .dds file to match the gtl one and overwrite it. It should work. If you want to re-number it remember to re-number all the other files as well.

Easy!

Hi. Sorry for upping an old topic but what should I do if that skin file doesn't have a .....body1.dds file ? I mean, for example the Ford Capri. Only has TEX, ULTRA_TEX, and CPIT_ULTRA_TEX.dds files in it. I don't have a BODY1.dds file to replace and the skin doesn't work... Thanks in advance.

You should be alright with those other files you mention as the BODY1.dds is the skin for the car and these are in the other files.

Very Happy

HI DS - to clarify simply renumber all the tex & ultra tex files to match the car number you wish to use then copy your skin across into the same folder and renumber/rename accordingly

As long as your numbering and file names tie up with the .car file it should work.

You can open and modify the tx & ultra tex files with 'Geditor' if you want but it is not necessary.

Good luck and let us know how you get on !

I'm not quite sure but I think that the templates from the HistoriX-Capri
for rfactor are not the same than the ones for GTL.

I remember that I once tried to import a skin from Histrox to GTL and failed Sad

Hi ! Thank you for your rapid answers ! I looked into some other custom skins that worked and found that I renamed the files I copied from the RF skin wrong. Smile The skin now works... Wondering, because it is a skin we miss in gtl (Ford Capri 3100 IMSA 1974 Ippocampos Racing) would it be too rude maybe to ask for a permition to release it ? :-/ I dunno :-/
