When I race these types of cars on my server I normally just use the default skins, but us different groups of them to differentiate the types.

There are quite a few skins by default and all the street cars have a few shades of the same colour. Its easy enough to use 3 shades of green for say the elise sc, shades of blue for step one and shades of red for s3. This way you end up with more variety amongst the skins and with the other cars I tend to use solid colours for basic cars then racing stripes or racing skins for the faster versions.

This way will work but quite likely it will have lots of the same colours and anyone not using the skin pack will see a field of white cars. I dont know how wally does the entry list but skin selection wise I find the acserverlauncher GUI tool quite handy and you can add GUID'd to drivers there fairly easily along with picking skins from the list.

If you had a list of all guid's to each player already in your entry list then it would be probably quite easy to change cars or skins this way.

Any of those cars could get used in the coming weeks.

no probs.

Might wan't to put some instructions in with your 1st post Wally. Cause they need to be manually put into the correct folders. where the normal  way would be to unzip into the 'cars'folder. Marty's fault it's like that.

Thanks Bruce. Marty begs to differ. I just think he is being confrontational as usual.  ;)

I will fix up my .zip skillz though.

I second that. Even if I didn't see many different cars during the races. In qual they were there.

Ok here are the skins all next to each other. slowest at the top to fastest at the bottom.
 There are still 2-3 cars not on here. (faster cars) So the faster end looks out of whack.

Shut up about the M3 e92 s1 skin. Just shut up. I can't even look at it any more... But nice colour.

Before I make a zip. I thought I'd show them for discussion. But there is nothing I'm going to change. so stiff. lol

Thanks dick the purple one looks interesting, it has a bit more Dick flare in it. Shame we wont see the Kitty machine make an appearance and I am surpised dick has yet to drive a car with Rainbows, Ponies, kitties etc. He seems to like giving those skins for others but wouldn't dare drive one himself  ;)

Forgot all about putting them in a .zip didn't I. Watch some TV i said... Do it later I said..
Woke up on the couch about midnight.

I'll do it when I get home tonight. I hope that wont be too late Wally?
Maybe just name the skin files of these two new additions how you like Wally. And I'll rename them at my end. if that is easy and makes any sense..

and that interesting purple skin.. It's a total mess. If you look closely, those squares are actually copies of what the skin is meant to look like. But they are tiny, and are like wallpaper... shut up.
