Scotty, thanks for sending me the file! I'm going to give it a go right away to see how it looks in the sim!!
The pictures you posted look pretty damn cool actually. Very country pride french indeed Alex, but awesome non the less! I'm super pumped that we've got this to work from!!

I do like the pattern, but my choice would be to reduce the amount of red and blue and increase the white. The Red and Blue, in my opinion, should be used in a way to accent the car's main color, white. Not sure if you all agree with me or not, so tell us what you think! I sorta liked the tiger stripping of the earlier shared pic and would like to see how that would look with all the colors included.

I like the idea of moving the driver name and flag to under the side windows, I find the current location to be too far forward. Good idea!

Now, for me to share this paint, I need your emails fellas. Please message me at jcooper95 at shaw DOT ca. And I'll send it your way asap!
Scot, do you know how soon Tim can make changes to the skin?

I was thinking the same thing with the color scheme - too much red and blue and what happened to the tiger stripes. He is activly make our changes. So give me your requests.

I would have to agree with Jon and Alex on this one.  I was thinking a little more white myself.  It does look better with colour then the greys though.

I should have probably commented before.

What I have told Tim this morning:


1. The name should be UNDER the door window.

2. What happened to the tiger stripes? The white/grey tiger stripes you did was beautiful. The guys are saying less Blue and Red and use mostly white with nice tiger stripe accents of Blue and Red. Not sure if this is coming across well.

3. Beer Logos - make the background color in the beer logos just clear - no color. I think they will look less like just plopped down on the paint and also you may have success in grouping them together.

Keep it coming....

I am liking the direction, but I think too much red and blue have been removed. I think there needs to be more solid color.
Also I'd like to see the grey removed.
That's my 2 cents.  :)

I just want to point out that we had a bunch of red and blue in last design and  some were indicating what happened to the tiger stripes. I asked him the whiten up the grey areas for you Jon. I actually like the design I last posted above but I am not sure how it will look will all the logos.

I have TGAs for each of you LZboys. But I have no idea what your email is to send the file. Contact me at scrowner AT gmail DOT com. Here is a peek at a low res picture of design #2. Let me know...

I am doing something wrong... I have it, renamed it, put it in the paint folder... nothing.

Oh, wit I think the right folder is:
C:\Users\username\Documents\iRacing\paint\cars\mclarenmp4

I have also this folder, but it isn't the right one.
C:\Users\username\Documents\iRacing\paint\mclarenmp4

Yep - IRacing recently added a NEW paint directory. Sorry it moved and you will have the old directory still present that will not work for you.

I am hoping everyone can get back to me today with a thumbs up on this list to ask the painter:

1. Remove the GREY in the design. Convert any grey to white.
2. Add black pin striping to edge the color transitions.
3. Move the flag and name to be centered under the window.

4. Jon wanted to make the color stripes more bold. He crudely edited the current design indicating his ideas. It is attached. Let me knos what you think.

I don't know if we need more bold colors with adding a little black. The black should give it more "pop" that we are looking for.

Everything else you mentioned looks good.

So probably less grey and some black "highlights".
