Please request and submit skins here.

For requests, please include the specific base default car that you wish to have your skin applied to.

For submissions, please confirm that your custom skin files are the same size as the corresponding default files and bundle with the full file path starting with GameData.

Skin submissions may normally be attached to a post.

New skins may be submitted at any time throughout the season but may not always be bundled into a skin pack.

Skins to be included for the first skin pack are due the night before the first race.

One of our racers asked for a Cuda template last Sunday.

I figure we may as well post them here so I'll chip away at adding the official templates as well as some working PSD files from some of my skins and any that others may wish to share.

Cuda has been added above.

So it turns out that it was not my template causing the problem. When I save as DDS it still shows up as a solid black car.
I just recently made the switch to windows 7. It was a clean fresh install. New clean install of paint shop pro v8 and followed tutorials 0n setting up DDS tools/plug in for paint shop pro. I have tried both versions of the plug-ins, 32 and 64 bit no difference.

Any thoughts?

I'm going to post my painted template if someone would be able to help me out and convert to a DDS file to see if it works I would greatly appreciate it. At least then I could rule out paint shop pro as the problem.

I have no experience with Paint Shop Pro and the PC that I use for skins is on XP.

See if you can get your hands on Gimp for Windows 7 and whether it can handle Paint Shop Pro files.

I use an old Photoshop Elements for most of the skin painting but need Gimp to work with / create DDS.

Ok you didn't hear it from me, 8-) but you can get a free copy of PhotoShop CS2(It's an older version of PS) from Adobe, just download it from there site no key needed. :geek: ;)

I haven't used CS2 yet for painting cars, I have been using a really old copy of PhotoShop 6 all these years and I got the dds plugin for PhotoShop when I started painting cars. I'm hoping the same or similar plugin works for CS2. Or I'll keeping using PS6 for car painting, works fine for that.

I'm currently using Windows 10 64bit and my old PhotoShop 6 has worked on Win XP, Win 7 and 10.

Thanks for that heads up. Actually got it and the plug ins work. Was able to convert using it.
I also have used paints shop pro from the start so photos shop is odd to me. Must be the plug in that I used when I reinstalled paint shop after the OS upgrade. For now I paint in paint shop and use photos hop to convert.

If someone can splatter a '68 Camaro for me, I'd appreciate it. For inspiration you can look at the Laphroaig skins I've had or the "art car" Beemer. Then again Penske yellow and blue would be nice too. As long as I can have #16 on the door.

Frank.

Just some tips.

Your skin file is smaller than the original (1366 KB vs 2731 KB).

I doubt that it'll cause a problem but best practice is to match the size of the default skin both by file size and image dimensions.

Being 2X on the file size that points to compression type. HGTTC is either BC1/DXT1 or BC3/DXT5.

I opened and saved it as BC3/DXT5 using Gimp which resulted in a 2731 KB file size. I think that you lose the ability to change how glossy the paint is (with an alpha channel layer mask) with BC1/DXT3.

I have no idea what i did to cause that to happen. I dont think i resized it, not intentionally anyway. i have to see what setting i had selected in the DDS tool. would using something other thanBC1/DXT1 or BC3/DXT5 cause that?

Sorry, Frank, I left out some words :oops: :lol:

The skin that you submitted is evidently BC1/DXT3 judging by the file size. I opened with GIMP and exported with BC3/DXT5 which made it the right file size.

I'm working on the skin pack.

I'd be done but for whatever reason, I can't get KJ's attachment.

As soon as I have it, I'll bundle and post the skinpack.

In the meantime, I'll make as many basic skins as I can for those who requested skins but were not fulfilled.

Whatever happens, I will post a skinpack by 15:00 in California.

Skinpack 1 is posted: viewtopic.php?f=93&t=3603&p=58984#p58984

Includes all skins submitted for Round 1 (except that I couldn't get KJ's), skins from prior seasons as best I could anticipate for those drivers who did not declare car choices, a Hawaiian Punch skin for Bobby Lee (#63 base with silver wheels, #69 base with black wheels) and a quick one for Jimmy Carvalho with his name applied to the #16 Penske Camaro.

Just got back today and seen this. I don't know why it doesn't work, same way I've always done it. I'll work on it but won't be in time for tonight.

**Just took a look and think I figured it out, the file size was way too big for a skin and empty folders. All the folders were not empty, now it's just my skin. Works now, sorry Tom**
