Quote from Mjdeadman21 :i cant download your skin pack for someone reason

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the pack was posted over 10 years ago Uhmm
I notice that i tend to use beer sponsors on my liveries often :]]
This one is private, couldn't decide on color, so i made 3 versions

What you guys think?
I used photoshop, what do you guys use?
oh, i lost my loooong reply i had typed Frown

so in short, cool skin, but you have all sorts of little errors there:
- stripes not lining up (for example transition between the roll hoop and the back of the cockpit, also the one on the nose is slightly off center)
- all of the stripes cut off abruptly on the edge of nose/sidepod, these use another bit of the texture
- your logos are stretched, LFS doesn't use the skin 'as-is' but stretches it over the car model, you can find a guide for that here: https://www.lfs.net/forum/thread/64975-The-Stretching-of-Skins
- the Nismo logo is right where the suspension mounts are.
- the geometric shapes on the side of the noseare in different heights on each side

a couple of tips:
- shrink your logos as neccessary, see the above guide for help
- if you don't already, use LFS viewer (see the downloads section on homepage) to preview your skin while working on it
- reference the wireframe for alignment
- use shadow layers on your skins to make the less flat and more real, Master skinnerz kits usually come with one, or you can try this https://www.lfs.net/forum/thread/23675

Happy skinning!

Thanks a lot. I've been looking for this type of information. But one question about the shadow layers. I downloaded them before, but I dont know how to use them or make them appear on the car. Any instructions?
for shadow layers, place them on top layer of your skin (i usually have the black mask and wireframe above, but that doesn't really matter)
then change the layer blending mode to 'multiply' and adjust the opacity to taste

Thanks Big grin
Just curious, but wanna work on a couple of skins with me? Or even show me some more tips and tricks?
Hi, don't have much time or will to make skins at the moment, but feel free to PM if you need some help, alternatively you can try the WIP subforum Smile

Skins F08 and FOX Gonzalo "Gonchi" Rodríguez Team Astromega and ADRacing
Hi, I do not know where to share my skins for F08 and FOX, and I thought this would be a perfect place.
I did them a year ago or so, in memory of a compatriot pilot who died on September 11, 1999, he was Gonzalo "El Gonchi" Rodríguez. These skins are a replica of the Astromega team's Formula 1 Jr (1999) and Alan Docking Racing, the British Formula 3 Championship (1995). F08 (Formula V8) and FOX (Formula XR) respectively


Hola, no se dónde compartir mis skins para el F08 y el FOX, y me pareció que este será un lugar perfecto.

Estos skins son una réplica de el monoplaza del equipo Astromega, de Fórmula 1 Jr (1999), y del Alan Docking Racing, del Campeonato Británico de Fórmula 3 (1995).

Hi, good effort,
but i noticed that both are missing quite a bit of the sponsorship logos (FO8 - bottom of the sidepods, engine cover, nose - FOX - nose area, headrest, etc...)

Just 2 tips:
1. not sure what software you're using, but if it supports layers and can open PSD, get the master skinnerz templates - much easier to skin a car
2. use this when fitting decals on the car, LFS stretches the skin to wrap around the car model, if you just paste the decals without adjustment they end up stretched ingame - you can see it on the FOX's ANCAP logo

Hi, these were the first two skins I did in lfs ... or at least the first ones that looking at them did not make me want to vomit. I am satisfied for how they were, since I do not waste much time doing skin's. I did them and published with the sole purpose of having a pair of skins of a pilot that I admire and I never found any skin of "their cars".
Using a program called paint.net is free and works with layers, is easy to use and extremely simple compared to photoshop. I also use photoshop, but I'm not very good with it
I can not spend more time on them ... I also published them, so that those who believed that they could improve it do so
I made them with the base of the skin by default without any help, every logo I placed tried it with the CMX viewer until it was the best I could. At that time I did not know the templates with frimeware, and now I do not think to do them again or try to fix them, and they cost me enough headaches, for being a "hard head"
Kind Regards: Gabriel
Mclaren MCL32
This is a 2017 Mclaren MCL32 skin,
i originally wanted to do the whole 2017 grid as a pack, but i found that the body of FOX is quite a bit different than the current F1 cars and i cba to do more Smile

Due to that there are spots where this skin is a bit inaccurate and i also took the artistic liberty of leaving out that horrible white bit on sidepods

anyway, here are the pictures, there are two versions (2 - Vandoorne, 14 - Alonso) in the zip below.
Enjoy!

Hey johneysvk, can you also make a BF1 MCL32 skin? I really appreciate those FOX skins Big grin
Quote from DrifterPavel :Hey johneysvk, can you also make a BF1 MCL32 skin? I really appreciate those FOX skins Big grin

And why do you want a BF1 version? It's an S2 car so you can't use it.
Here is the replica of the Mclaren MCL32 driven by Alonso.Yea,as a Fernando Alonso fan,I made NO.14 onlyWink.
I wanted to make it as accurate as possible,though the general profile of FOX is so different from the real F1,especially the sidepods and back. I tried hard to keep the arc on the back as smooth as possible, and I even made the Johnnie Walker Logo on the mirrors.The white triangle on the side pod is retained,it makes the sidepods look like a little down wash streamline from side view.
Enjoy!
