iRacing Overlay Designer & AC Skin Creator
- Jul 31, 2016
In Season 5 of The AOR iRacing GTE League, we will broadcast all 10 rounds. To make this look as professional as possible and to aid spectators by showing which driver is in what class, we have a skin pack. The skin pack overrides the base plates on the iRacing liveries, therefore we can change plate colours etc.
This season it is mandatory to send your skins in. It is very quick and easy to do!
How to save the Livery
We would prefer to have skins without decal layers on. When you download the template of the iRacing's web page you will see this in Photoshop:
As shown on the picture, you will see two folders: a red and a blue one. All you need to do before saving your paint as a TGA 24bit is to turn the red marker off, and then save it.
What if someone sent me a livery?
Don't worry, the plates we are using will cover it up, but the way above is preferable. If you can't do it, no problem.
But I'm using a paint from Trading Paints, how do I send that?
If you go into your iRacing Paints folder (e.g. C:\Users\Me\Documents\iRacing\paint), go into the car of choice, and search "Car_[Your customer ID].TGA" This is the livery you've pulled from trading paints.
In C:\Users\Me\Documents\iRacing\paint, If scroll to the bottom and look for 'Suit_[customer ID]' and 'Helmet_[customer ID]', we can also include them in the Skin Pack.
How do I send my Livery?
You will need to send you livery via one of the links below, depending on what car you are using, so Ferrari 488, you will then take the link to send the Ferrari 488. In that link you can also send your helmet and suit if you wish.
When you do this, you must rename your files like the following:
ALL FILES BUT BE SAVED AS 24BIT TBA files. IF YOU CANT SEND THE SKIN AS THE FILL IS TO BIG; YOU HAVE SAVED IT WRONG. ALL FILLES NOT MEETING THESE REQUIREMENTS WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE FOLDER, ALL FILES SEND TO ME OR ANY OTHER COORDINATORS WILL NOT BE ADDED TO THE PACK.
*replace 123456 with your iRacing customer ID
The deadline to get our skin into the pack is every Friday at 23:59 GMT+1 Next deadline: 4/1/2019
Update/New Driver Here
If you have any questions, please ask @Niclas Domino, he's more than happy to go with everything with you. Do not fear someone will steal your livery, ultimately anybody can steal your livery if they really want, so being in a team and trying to protect it doesn't change anything. We would be able get it one way or another. This just speeds up the process. All in all, this takes no more than 5 minutes. You are helping us massively and hugely cut down the data input time and ensure that our broadcasts look professional.
