Quote from MiniVan :How do you guys get gimp to work so well, I have it but i cant figure it out and how to do designs and all that crap.

I'm not a GIMP user but the first link Google gave after searching for 'gimp tutorials' was this. Looks fairly promising.
I wanna make designs and stuff and want to be able to mirror it onto the other side without it looking like crap anyone know how and what I should use to skin on and how?

Quote from Joris :These are original. I took the colour samples from VW's website.

these are not skins.

why not just copy the rgb values and later apply it in the game.

Err... You can't apply the colors by RGB value/number in LFS

meh oh well.
Quote from MiniVan :is there any free programs that are easy to use to make skins.

Paint.NET is the easiest to use. you can get lots of plugins in their forum as well.
im having a problem with the layers in CS3. im using the pro kit to. the side layers like wont allow you to use the whole side just part of it. just cant get the stuff to work right like the other skins. dunno

Quote from Racer556 :a quickie!
It looks nice ingame, tho the skin itself doesn't :P

And the first ugly skin for VWS goes to...
Riders, I know it looks like s**t it self.
But look at this pic ingame, and you'll see it doens't look as you might think.
If this is ugly to you, then plain cars are ugly too! so I expect an apologise

What's the difference between your skin and the white blank skin?
that it actually looks somewhat silverish
I'll do a comparison, hang on.

edit: here it is! Even thought is quite subtle, it's noticeable, and I kinda like it. It's not ugly at all, as Riders said (:razz. Just a subtle efect to it.
I'm comparing the same gray overlay, not just a darker one telling you just because.
C'mon, he does not deserved being called "ugly"

Oh btw, if you haven't seen the skin itself, it looks ridiculous xD but the effect was added on the hatch, the hood and the top too..

Arctic Silver is more a precise term.

Subtle changes are the best, my skin uses a very slightly off white which looks better than just white.
