Since most of the people liked the idea of having a league, i thought why not have an official skin. And also, lately when there were only 2-3of us that wanted to race during the week, we went to some public servers cos we wanted more racers. Therefore, its wise to have a skin, so that people know who those 2-3guys were that kicked ass. :twisted:

Well this is what i came up with. Obviously, the base had to be black/red. Tell me what you guys think, and if you like it or not. I made this only for the fz50gtr so far, but if everyone likes it i will make it for every car.










Of course everyone can put their racing number on the side (as long as its not 9, cos thats mine :p )

Some more patterns that i can put in between the stripes (though the one on the pictures is my favourite, and mancs & jos liked that the most as well).



How it looks on the track: (jos, mancs, me)

As I said before, I like it!

I have number 25 btw, so that's my number from now on! :D

Keep up the good work, I'll sticky this.

Dunno about the blue, but I like it!

And even though I never play or even has S2 (yet!), I call 07 or 007. :D

That's looking good. But, I'd say let the people choose their own base color. Otherwise it's gonna be more difficult to tell who is who in our races. I would take the black-green gradient instead of black-red :)

Noooo, just turn on 'names above cars' in the game. Don't let people ruin it, if you have 10 people, imagine the crappy colors it would have.

^ yeah, that does work. and if you dont use names above cars, you can always have a glance at the small thing down right corner on the screen that shows the current positions. ;) + most of us have their names on the license plate as well :)

ps: or customize the colour of your rims :D

I have names above cars, but it's always easier to differentiate people by colors if there're many cars at one place. 10 identical cars racing may look cool, but unpractical.

I don't see you point. Different colors are crappy by definition? Well, I disagree. Team-skins may have some common-pattern, but leave place to customize it individually. In this case I'm talking only about base-color. You can still recognize it easily as FG-skin.

oh, dont forget that we have huge numbers on the side as well, that can improve somewhat the ease of differentiation among members :)

^^ Excellent. :thumbsup:

Keep the red base the same, but customize the stripe and grid. :)

And I'd like white on mine. Dunno what texture for the stripe though. Checker flag? Some textured white? *shrug*
