FEATURES
LIGHTS
All included versions of Lola DBR1-2 have working headlights, brakelights, side LEDs and numbers, which glow in dark. Moreover glowing numbers can be painted with car skin, so players can paint favourite livery and use it in game with own number (for example “777”, “001” etc.). If player don’t like glowing numbers, they can use basic lights, without glowing numbers (with side LEDs):
- use black alpha channel with white numbers in ****EXTRA601.dds & ****EXTRA701.dds files if you want glowing numbers.
If you leave car skin without ***EXTRA600.dds, ..... , ****EXTRA701.dds files, car will use default textures from mas archive (without glowing number).

Textures for side numbers:
- YourCarSkinNameEXTRA600.dds – left number (lights off);
- YourCarSkinNameEXTRA601.dds – left number (lights on);
- YourCarSkinNameEXTRA700.dds – right number (lights off);
- YourCarSkinNameEXTRA701.dds – right number (lights on);
(“YourCarSkinName” comes from VEH file: DefaultLivery=" YourCarSkinName.dds" ).

Faces for number glow in lights *.gmt files are same size (and at same place) as red square on 008LM skin – so only there you can paste own number. By using “Vehicle Viewer” you can adjust numbers and number glow position in main skin and in extra6, extra7 files. Textures for numbers glow are ~2.0 times biger than square with number on main car skin.

- GenString=1 if you want to use Michelin;

nome66 on Mar-06-2011

Are there any skins for the 2009 LeMans / LMS versions available?
Or could maybe somebody make them?
Thanks in advance.

To much channels to export(5).

Go under layers (i think) and Flatten Image.
Then run the convert.
Your Photoshop is saying the file is essentially to big for your system, sometimes you can convert smaller files without having to Flatten but I find on the bigger car files i have to Flatten first.

Got similar error, while working with templates overall, not only with thous for Astons. I just copy finished RGB layers to "donor" dds file, or saved as png, and later as dds I think, don't remember exactly how I avoid that.
Diromo on Dec-10-2010

ah okay no prob, it was just an idea. But anyway your cars are really great like to dirve them already made my own one by using the templates.But always when i want to save the psd file to a dds photoshop give me an error: To much channels to export(5). Do you know to fix this ?? rmail me if ya know thx
Dj Noize on Dec-09-2010

They don't work with conversions. And they don't like "quality" gap between this one and whole Enduracers mod. Resume - got finger from them, and I'm happy on my own.
Diromo on Dec-09-2010

Hey diromo why dont you think about asking enduracers for a coopertion with them. Your cars fit way better to the endu mod than to the ilms mod.
But great cars anyway, they look amazing
