Adding your own team & cars into FIHSF1 mod?

Post by Razzaman » Sat Mar 24, 2012 2:59 pm

As i am a web / graphics designer, i though i would attempt to paint a Monster Energy car.
By overwriting a current farrari, its working, what i want to know is:

Is there a way that i can add a custom team of 2 drivers / cars into the fihsf1 mod at all? And is so how to?

Many thanks in advance, and when i get used to this painting i am more than willing to help members out with there own colors etc.... :)

You will need to chat with Josh. He created all the skins.

If I read you correctly, you want to make a "fantasy" car skin and team. Is that right ? I'm not sure about doing that. We have tried to keep things as close to real as we can. We did consider doing historic teams if we ran out of real ones on the grid. I'll have to think about it.

It does look cool, however.

You can make custom liveries as your own option but we will not add full new teams to the mod. There are many open seats available but to add more would be tough on most machinces as it is. To add new models would probably cause more problems then I care to deal. I have enough to fix as is with current issues. I hope you understand this and that we try to keep everything on par with the thing, as John states.

Thats cool and sure i understand.
So if i do infact take a seat, is there a rule against custom helmet / car liveries?

I have also noticed that upon testing of the edited car, everything show as it should apart from the kers flap which reverts back to the original livery.

Not at all, if you have a custom helmet ready to go, send me photoshop or dds file. I will need to know what seat you would like and I will apply that helmet. Same for Custom liveries.

For a list of remaining seats, check here. I believe Williams has an open seat as Ispanda will most likely not race but every so often. Force India has no drivers and might be the best place for you at this time.
