No hello kitty..... sigh....

I quit.

Don't worry. I'm working on a hax that will make every skin turn into a Hello Kitty skin.

Dick, we'll skip the custom skins for this series. Too hard. There's already enough great looking race skins in the game. I'll assign them randomly.

Just sayin'.... I have skins ready to go....
 I can't believe you'd knock back a Coolabah Fruity Lexia skin!

If someone wants to choose a custom skin, then great. What I mean is, I don't want to see all cars of a model looking the same this time.

Yeah same. I liked the concept of colour coding. But I never really had enough time to add more to the paint jobs. And the Lotus skins are very bitsy. Like I said, not my proudest work at all. I don't like to half do things, even though my life is full of half finished projects lol. I doubt we will have a field that large again though. (car model wise)

Just let me know what cars we are going to use for sure and I can mess about with them and take it from there.

   I need some advice for sponsors though. Not about silly sponsors. but racing sponsors. I look at other skins and find brand names that way no worries. What I don't want to do in end up having conflict of interest which may spoil a legit looking skin otherwise. eg mobil 1 and shell oil stickers on the same car That example is kinda obvious. But if anyone notices a conflict with my sponsors let me know! Or sponsors that are important to have for a certain class or whatever.

I think this is on the way to being legit looking. Add a few sponsors, a hello kitty here and there and you've got a race car.



a few sponsors now added

Very nice skin but I still think we need Mr.Bean behind the wheel or a few Clarksons!

The problem, Dick, is that we don't know who'll drive what car.

I'd love a gold/skyblue/black one, maybe that geometrial pattern thing up here.  Let's put it on the slowest car and let's hope I can drive it :)

yeah we will see what happens. If we only have the 3 variants, I might be able to make enough to just have a few Dick Skins in the mix if we go random.. Chances are the likes of GT will be in the same car so why not have a HK skin ready for him.
It will come down to admin at the end of the day really.

I will work on the colour combo. I'm pretty happy with how that came out.. MP4-GT3 is the slowest?

I'll post up some season 4 thoughts soon. I'm thinking of using all of the cars I listed, to mix up the field, and to have a variety of strengths and weaknesses as Marty suggested.
