The person who converted these cars from Automobilista didn't know anything about car painting, using full saturation, full brightness, and a pure white Alpha channel that makes the cars look like they're glowing. They look like cartoons!

I just spent all day fixing that. Also I added all the original Automobilista skins for variety (just don't tell anyone!).

http://www.keeper1st.com/rf2/MiniSkins.zip -- Extract to your Steam folder ../steamapps/common/rFactor 2/UserData/player/Settings. The original Automobilista skins will be found in the "Select Variants" car at the top of the list. Cycle through the "Variant" selector to see or choose them.

All default mod car files have new, sensibly coloured versions (and with a proper environment map alpha so they won't seem like they're glowing). Simply select a car then go to the Tuning menu. The updated skin should load automatically (must go to Tuning menu first though). You'll know you have it by the RSL logo near the bottom of the doors. For some of the colours I made each of the two cars have a different shade, e.g. one "green" car is light green while the other is a darker green. ("Orange" cars are now orange also.) I also varied the mirror, roof and wing colours between the two cars of each colour, for some variety.

This won't fix random people joining the server and appearing in the cartoon cars, unfortunately... We'd have to pack up a new version of the mod with these skins replacing those to fix that.

And if you want to paint your own car, http://www.reizastudios.com/downloads/AMS/Templates/AMS_MiniChallenge_templates.rar -- the Car body, Window and Windshield templates apply to the rF2 conversion. ("Windshield" is what you see from inside the cockpit; it will be displayed in mirror image.) If editing Window and/or Windshield remember to adjust the Alpha channel to match any decals, numbers or names you put on the glass, otherwise you'll just make coloured glass.
