Thread: Car skin won't show up

    Unhappy Car skin won't show up

    I have a problem with one skin for HistorX mod.



    To be found here:
    https://www.rfactorcentral.com/paint....cfm?ID=NUNO74

    I added some other skins and all are fine. But this one just won't show up in game's menu (also I noticed that AI cars won't use it in races). Could somebody tell me please what might be an issue here?


    BTW, below is code from veh file. I double checked it (also changed a bit) with some other cars from original mod and I cannot see anything wrong here.

    Code:
    // GONZAS // 
    
    // ALL OBJECTS EXCEPT RIMS ARE PAINTABLE //
    
    
    
    DefaultLivery="1.dds"

    Does the .veh file have a unique name? ............ if the .veh file name is a repeat it will not show up.

    @redapg - I believe they're OK. As I said, I got other skins for that Escort working just fine (and they're all using pretty much same veh files) but this one (which I like best) just won't show up.

    @GFraser1965 - it's unique for Escort for sure. Don't know about other cars though. Is it important? Should I check all other cars in the mod too?

    No two .veh files can be the same inside the Vehicles folder ........... they must have unique names.

    That was it. Some BMW had already the same .veh name, so I re-named that Escort folder and all files inside it accordingly, and car showed up in the game Many thanks for your help GFraser1965.
