Quote from FlyeThemoon :What i dont understand?

demo racer + F08/FOX skin request = cracker or at least suspicious =>
Guys, chill. He's not even asked for the skins, he just wants to know where they are. For all you know he just wants to see them.

Everyone has got a bit banana-happy recently.

Sure, there's no point asking for skins you can't use, but I used to look at the ones hosted here before I got my S2 license. Innocent until proven guilty.
That right Dajmin i dont ask of this skins.
Continuing our custom paintjobs for the FOX... hope to hear more comments good and bad please.

Alberto Lyon is a well known Trackday man here in our country... holding 2nd place in one of the most popular (and almost only accesible one) track in our country. He drives a Mitsubishi EVO IX wich he loves since he's a real fan of 4x4 japanese sports cars, and his fanatism for The Mclaren F1 Team drove him to create his ultimate machine... The Mclaren-Mitsubishi 2007 FOX... a car that doesn't go unnoticed because of it's aggresive, yet elegant look.

The package contains both 512 and 2048 versions of the skin, along with settings for wheel colors, choose according to your pc capabilities. Skin is available at lfsworld for online usage.

Just went from WIP to "tired of fiddling with it". I got the idea one day when I was playing IL2 and thought I would make something similar to the P-40 Warhawk.

Quote from vf1-xj220 :awesome skin justinziarko, very nice concept and colors... i like the flow of the whole paint job... very distinctive. although there are some decals that overlap some lines in the 3d model like the ATL on top and the number in the nose, unless it's done on prupose, it hinders the attention to detail in the whole car. Also the cromo on the front wings is way too big for my taste... A great job anyways, very nice detail the transition from the yellow to the dark blue, gotta check that out ...

I'll be publishing some of our custom skins, hope you guys like them, id' like to hear good and bad comments... it helps the design process of new paintjobs.

This one was inspired on a real TC2000 that runs in our country, driven by Francisco Rodriguez, a tc2000 pilot. It's called "Citroen Calypso 2007", since Calypso Maquinaria it's the company owned by Francisco Rodriguez family. The whole concept started as the TC2000 Citroen AX tried to mimic the Citroen Total Rally car, resulting a red with stickers car, i worked out a little bit the concept since i don't like the stickers only car, and it turned out quite well...

Could I get the JPEG skin? so I can upload it on LFS World
almost forgot about that... already uploaded an updated version of the car (with proper suspension holes, not circles...), so if you want to use the skin online, now it's available...

i updated the zip in the previous post with the latest version if you want to have the new suspension holes.
Are you sure you updated it?, I can't find the JPEG version of the skin :S
read the instalation instructions of the package... the format is in dds. I do this because LFS will downsize my 2048 jpegs to 1024x1024 while converting to dds... and that's what i don't want. Although, for lfsworlds you need a 1024 jpg (wich i don't include into the package because of the following reason, wich i specially resize, and compress to upload to lfsworld.

Skins that i release are available in lfsworld without the need to upload your own, because i do so when i post them...

if you follow the instalation instructions (wich is choosing either the 512 or 2048 file then extracting to your lfs main dir), when you select the FOX while playing online, people will be able to view your skin.

meaning you don't need the jpg to upload to lfsworld because it's already there.

BTW.. i'll be posting 2 versions of an old custom sponsoder IPSD Brabham, plus the redesigned one sponsored by Smoking shortly..., heh.. got tons of FOX to post yet.
nice, if they are as good as the previous ones, then can't wait to check them out.
This is actually the second skin i made for the FOX when i was learning how to do so..., Basically, Tomas Cintolesi wanted an adaptation of an old Brabham with custom sponsors. Although the car is very simple, and it might go out as just a car with stickers, it stands out whenever it´s in the track, it has a unique presence that won´t let it go without catching your eye. The Fox IPSD 2006 won´t be driven anymore by Tomas Cintolesi, since he changed sponsors... it looks the best with cromo tyres and hope you guys enjoy it.

The package contains both 512 and 2048 versions of the skin, along with settings for wheel colors, choose according to your pc capabilities. Skin is available at lfsworld for online usage.

Patricio Achondo is one of the most talented racers in our club, with experience in pro-karting, he wanted an adaptation of the 1973 BMW 3.0 CSL racing car. The BMW M Fox 2007 was dressed with the most advanced tecniques of german engineering... it is white, with stripes, and with a number in the side. Extremely simple, yet it embodies the soul of the classic BMW that once raced in the track. The car goes the best with cromo tyres, and hope you guys enjoy it.

I love your skins, they're amazing, also the edits are stunning. What edits/effects do you use for the edits as i assume you use GIMP/Photoshop for skinning and editing?
I guess he is using 2 screenshots (one with the car and one without). He gave the background a heavy gaussian blur. The car itself is a duplicated layer. One with gaussian blur more brightness and contrast and reduced transparency above the original layer with the car. Thats how I would do it.

btw: Very nice skins vf1-xj220.
heh... very detailed description Anathema... Indeed is kinda that way, example from the last screen with the BMW, first, i overexpose a bit the whole screenshot, then cutout the car from it.Then i placed 3 stages of Lens blur depending on the distance of the scenario in the background with a smooth transition. That´s for the depth effect. The car would look misplaced since it would "overstandout" from the entire picture, that´s because when you take a picture that way, it´s hard to get the whole car in focus, and perfect pictures aren´t good looking for screenshots. I duplicate the layer from the car then i apply heavy overexpose over it, then heavy gaussian blur, change layer to hard light, then adjust transparency. That´ll result in the "bloom" effect of the car. The visible layer of the car gets a very slight zoom blur to off focus some part sof the car, then the picture is done with a "beautiful summer day" effect.

thanks for the feedback, it´s always good to know that your work is appreciated. Checkout my gallery here http://www.vf1.cl/gallery/gallery.htm, if you see any unreleased car that you like, feel free to ask and i´ll haste it´s release... they are just unpackaged so it´s real easy.

I´ll be releasing Christian Cornejo´s FOX tomorrow, it´s a nice blue paintjob based on his real Formula 3... hope you guys like it too.

Why don't you post your skins like this instead...
Quote from Riders Motion :Why don't you post your skins like this instead...

If he chooses to post them like that, it's his choice..
You have permission to post it?
Mainly because either the game doesn't properly compress the skin into dds, or it downgrades it to 1024x1024 (if you place the jpg looks pretty crappy sometimes)... so you won't be enjoying the nice benefits of having 2048x2048 textures. Also some cars like the one i'm releasing today, they go with an specific wheel color, and i like everyone to enjoy the paintjob as the author (me) intended. i put a lot of attention to detail when it comes to a new paintob, and also, proper packaging is part of that attention to detail.

Christian Cornejo is a rising star in our country's Formula 3 Championship, he became addicted to our racing club when he found himself in pressure situations alike as the real ones... thanks to the steady level of our racers. He always wanted a new paintjob for his formula 3 and asked me to design something considering his sponsors and mantaining his trademark... the blue car with yellow rims. The FOX MasVida LiquiMoly 2007 has the soul of a true racing car... very distinguishable in the track, it's easily recognizable and it can hold the pressure of it's driver. It goes the best with cromo tyres, and hope you guys enjoy it.

If you place the 2048x2048 textures in the skins/ folder, and use uncompressed (not compressed) skins in game, they'll show as 2048x2048 original like in the past.
is there a "non compressed mode"? like using "TIF" files? because jpg is compressed anyways. as you might have seen i like closeups a lot.. and sometimes even jpeg compression would change some colors and even at level 12 compression some color combinations would create compression squares visible on some sponsors at close range. and i think dds is somehow faster and more practical since the videocard would port the jpg to dds anyways when in memory.

but then, i still want people to race with the car using the original rim colors...

i wish i could have installshield to make a nice two click installing exe.
