Quote from ajp71 :I actually found it very easy to get a line to run across it, takes a bit of guess work with no template though. Look at Quicksilvers skin for a guide as how to do it. Then look at the car in the viewer to check that your lines are going to work on the model.

Well, it's not exactly getting the lines to connect, you can figure that out with trial and error, but there are a couple of spots where one line would be perfect and the other line which it would have to connect to would get stretched thus not connecting properly (sidepod upper bottom for example, i don't mean just a line across the side or something) One pixel more or less makes wouldn't solve it. Dunno, it's hard to explain i guess
I've done quite alot of skins so I know my way around but some areas are a bit frustrating
But I'll work around it and simplify some things
Its not as hard as you would think, just needs a little longer to match up lines than the fo8. Here is my 2nd one done for another team mate, this time i actually lined stuff up first time which was nice It is similar to my last design, and took about 2 hours so its quite simple to do lines like that across the car.

I actually find it easier to skin than the FO8. The only problem I have with it is 1024 just isn't enough to get good detail on it.

Here's a little preview of my work in progress Not much more to do, but some details to add and bits to tweak I've tried to add a metallic effect to the paint too

That's not the issue. What I'm saying is that the way the car is mapped (because it's got a much longer wheel base) it could really do with higher res skins. I tred to think what sort of detail will be seen in 512 skins.

load up BF1_default in the skin viewer, look at the back spoiler from below, and try to read the words...
lets just say i cant wait for the master skinners guys to release a template

ive gotten so used to skinning with their awesome tools that its hard to do it without, but im almost done with a bf1 skin that ive spent about an hour on that i think is quite effective.

some of the things people are making already is amazing
OK, OK. By popular demand, here's a public version of the Canadian BF1 skin. Feel free to put a number on it (not 71,) and/or your name/flag on the cockpit.

  1. ONLY Post Finished Skins

Kawasaki BF1 skin, I found it easy to skin this car by opening the BF1_DEFAULT file and setting the contrast to 100, gives you a perfect outline of the car.

Similar to my FO8 skin, but I actually put some writing on this one.

Yeah but they also used the McLaren logo in 1991 and on some more after (dont know what years thought)
Skinning IS fun!

(If you're good at it )

Gobby, your FO8 skins were very useful in making this skin- some angles don't show up in the f1.com photos!
