Complete newbie here at working with graphics files in GTR2.

I was wondering, in some mods the mirror like shine on the cars is super over-done, to the point the actual colors of the livery, for instance Ferrari red, seem pink or even white-ish when displayed in the sim. Is there a way to remove this shine, where the cars are the actual color they were painted in real life?

Can someone walk me through what I would need to do to change it? I have used GIMP to create skins in various flight sims, so I do have some basic knowledge, just not familiar with editing or creating GTR2 graphic files....

You need to make a mask .dds file with photoshop or another program, and apply it to the 3d chassis models with 3dSimEd.

The quick way to make the .dds is is to get the body1 dds from the TEX.gtr and change it to GREYSCALE. You can then adjust the brightness and contrast to make it darker if you wish, The darker it is, the less shine you have.

(I'm using the Ferrari 250 GTO as an example, but it will be your cars .dds)

Save that as 1234_FERRARI_250GTO_BODY1_MASK.dds. All you need to do is add the _MASK to the end of the file name like that.

Next, you need to get the three chassis GMT's: A, B, & C, from the OBJ.GTR, put them in a folder with the mask.dds.

Load the three gmt's up together as objects with 3dSimEd. Then you will see, for the wc_team_body1 entries, in the SPECULAR MAP, you will see the default body_mask entry FERRARI_250GTO_BODY1_MASK.dds

Change those entries to point to your 1234_FERRARI_250GTO_BODY1_MASK.dds file and save as OBJECTS.

Put those chassis files and the .dds in your cars folder, and your done.

I think that's it. It's easier to do than to explain.

I just realised today, there is possibly a default mask file in the MAIN .TEX.GTR

If there is, and you darken that, it will work on all cars in the mod.

You could also try a different Emap_paint.dds they all differ GTL /PnG/ GTR2 I have found GTL is the least shiny but there are loads out there the mask and its settings makes the biggest difference tho.
