[IMPORTANT] rFactor Indy Lights skin : Tristan Vautier (Schmidt Peterson Motorsports) + a lot to talk about.

Hello ladies and gentlemen, I’m happy to write another post today, with some very important content. Indeed, I have a skin to present you, but I also want to talk about the future of my website in terms of skins, tracks, and maybe cars.

1. New skin : Tristan Vautier (SPM).

I begin with the skin I just finished today. It is obviously still one of the Indy Lights Champions’ skins, and after 2014 and 2013, it is logically Tristan Vautier’s livery, as he got crowned in 2012. He won the title with Schmidt Peterson Motorsports as a rookie (by the way congratulations to Alexander Rossi at the Indianapolis 500). After that, he raced in 2013 with the same team in Indycar Series, and returned for half a  year in 2015 with Dale Coyne Racing. The colours are this time more various, but with still so many sponsors, it was complicated for me again. The usual screenshots are right here :

If you are happy with my job, you can get it here :  https://mega.nz/#!MpsUHDZK!8bgYYfK5-g-xfxiiTOJ8HD7SptIRctU42s2a_MgT7wk .

The folder you will get in the file is the same as the one you had to create earlier for Karam’s skin, just paste it in the same location merge them if needed.

2. Skins in the next months.

After the presentation of my last skin, I want to talk about those that I’m going to make in the next few months. Obviously, I still have two Indy Lights skins to paint, the 2011 and 2010 Champions’ liveries. A little spoil, the first is American and the second is French… I will maybe (even certainly) make some others from Indycar stars that haven’t been crowned, but this will have to wait. Indeed, I have some other projects.

The first could be quite fast, as it is the reproduction of liveries coming from a local touring car championship, and just for one car in particular, as the others does not seem to exist in rFactor. I predict six skins for the moment.

After a touring car, I could also make a super touring car, that was racing until 2013 in a monotype championship. I think the seasons 2009, 2010 and 2012 are already made, so I can make some of 2011 and 2013, I still have to decide. I can also make a skin from the older car.

Another idea is a second monotype championship, raced mostly in Europe, with an important championship in Belgium and the Benelux. It was created in 1997, and has seen a lot of drivers, as it is cheap and quite performant. I do not say more, maybe have you recognized it. The main problem for the moment is that the existing mod for this car does not allow me to make correct skins.

I do not forget Richard Burns Rally, but I put it a bit behind me for the moment. I met a real driver, and promised him to try to do his own livery, I think I will do this at the end of June, if I still have enough time.

I could also make some GT skins, but I do not have any precise idea of what for the moment. Of course, if you have any request, do not hesitate to tell me, as some others did (it makes me remember I’ve got a F3000 skin to do).

3. Tracks (some Work In Progress).

I can say that I am more a painter than a track builder, but almost one year after the release of my first track, I still have some ideas and a little bit of time for it. But I am a bit confused, as I have not given any information about it for a long time. The bad news is that the “Goodyear Test Track Colmar-Berg” project (https://f14tmodding.wordpress.com/2016/03/07/w-i-p-goodyear-test-track-colmar-berg/) is unfortunately “dead”, as the software crashed and I couldn’t recover it. I forgot to tell you, and I’m sorry.

But what is better is that I began a new one, with much more care than before. I can already tell you that it’s not a kart track, even if a little one. I’m not that far in this project, so I will not say too much for the moment. When it will be interesting enough, do not worry I’ll post about it.

4. Various things

What could I say here ? I will obviously not make something different from modding here. I have already talked about skins and tracks, so you would have understood that it is time to talk about cars. I said in my very first post that I would probably never design cars for any game. But it may have changed.

I would prefer not to “loose” time on it, but if I can’t really find a car I appreciate (for exemple a better version of one mod I described higher), I could try to do it myself. I have all the softwares that I could need, I just have to try. The most difficult could be to find good blueprints without paying, as I’m not rich and I don’t wish to make you pay my stuff. I know the structure of rFactor quite well, and with a lot of readings, it could work. But of course, I won’t make it for the moment.

I am also thinking of changing the look of the website a little bit, what do you think ?

I can also say that if everybody is interested in working on such projects (skins, tracks, cars or whatever),  you can easily send me a comment or an email, I try to answer as quickly as possible. That’s all I had to say, I hope you read me until the end. Thanks again for being interested in my website !

rFactor Indy Lights skin : Sage Karam (Schmidt Peterson Motorsports).

Hello followers, I present you today the second skin I made for the Indy Lights mod, just some days before the Indianapolis 500 100th edition.. This one was also made some weeks ago, and as I told you previously it is the 2013 champion Sage Karam’s livery. He was racing that year with the Schmidt Peterson Motorsports (that is also in Indycar Series), and won the title as a rookie. When you see it for the first time, it looks absolutely simple, but it is in fact really complicated, as finding the sponsors and modifying them took me a lot of time. Here are some screenshots (I improved the quality) for you to judge :

Even if it is simple, I hope you like it and you will download it just here :  https://mega.nz/#!8pVGGbYQ!COdpMPjmEoXR1BSY3uOvifjKTSVqIAORzLY_m2CPlYQ

To see the skin in the game, you have to put the “Schmidt Peterson Motorsports” folder  in the same location than for the first one, it is explained in my previous post.

Next week, I will write a big post explaining the future of my website that was created already one year ago ! It will talk about skins, tracks and maybe more, so stay tuned !

rFactor Indy Lights skin : Gabby Chaves (Belardi Auto Racing).

Hello guys (and girls of course), I’m coming back tonight with the proof that even if I like Richard Burns Rally, rFactor 1 is not dead to me. The skin I present you here is Gabby Chaves’ 2014 skin, when the Colombian driver was crowned Indy Lights champion with Belardi Auto Racing. For those who do not know (it may happen), it is like the GP2 is for Formula One, that’s to say the last junior series. I remembered some months ago that this mod was available, with all liveries from 2007 to 2009, but the car was used till 2014. I decided to make this skin, and I simply forgot to upload it here, as I switched on RBR for a moment. But as the template is easy to use and the car is great,  so I will try to make all champions’ skins of 2011, 2012 and 2013 at least, maybe more. As some sponsors were difficult to find, they may be missing, I hope you won’t take it bad. Here are some screenshots to help you judge (sorry for their quality, I think I found how to improve it for the next)  :

If you are interested by this skin, you can download it as usual right there :  https://mega.nz/#!o10BXarI!wnpFcpvkQ4loIDnA0G9OCCb-gjKf3sY7RfXTTzt7l88 .

And if you don’t have it, you canf ind the mod here : https://www.rfactorcentral.com/detail.cfm?ID=Firestone%20Indy%20Lights .

Please take care where to put the skin : you have to put the “Belardi Auto Racing” folder in Vehicles/FirestoneIndyLights/2009_Season/2009_Teams . Have fun !

Richard Burns Rally skin : Armand Fumal (Citroën DS3 R5).

Hello  guys ! Today, I am presenting my last skin before a moment, as I won’t have any time for almost a complete month. This one is the skin of Armand Fumal, a Belgian driver who has raced for a long time around the world. Here, it is another DS3 R5, with simple but great looking colours. You can see some screenshots following this :

Thanks for reading me !

Richard Burns Rally skin : Guillaume Dilley (Citroën DS3 R5).

Hello followers, I tried to be as quick as possible so I’m back with a new skin for RBR. This one is Guillaume Dilley’s livery from this year’s Spa Rally. The young belgian (as usual) driver is one of the most promising of his generation, as he finished second in the Belgian Rally Championship last year with his DS3 R3T, and obviously first of his category. His two championship races this year were complicated, but he’ll be fighting with those great colours that I hope you will like. You can see some screenshots right here :

Thanks for being more and more every day !

Richard Burns Rally skin : Benoit Allart (Skoda Fabia WRC).

I’m baaack !!! After a quite long time (I had a lot of work), I’m presenting you my last skin for Richard Burns Rally. It is Benoit Allart’s 2016 skin. This driver can be considered as one of the last “dinosaurs”, as he’s still running with a WRC car in the Belgian Rally Championship which is more favoring the R5 cars. His Fabia WRC is maybe at least ten years old, but it is still quick, because he ended fourth in last week’s Rallye de Wallonie. The colours are maybe simple(it is Spa rally’s livery), but I think they look quite great, so I hope you’ll like it. Here are some screenshots :

Once again, if you have any comment to give, do not hesitate, I’m always listening. Have a nice day !
