Just small tweak for better paint jobs


This is just a little texture edit,that we made for slrr,thanks to Bigg Boss93 who told me that.

-Put texture folder in your slrr root folder/cars,and replace old ones.

-This edit contains two versions.1024x1024 and 1280x1280.Reason for this is,becouse slower PC's can lag a bit with high resolution textures.

***You will need to make new carrier,it doesen't work on cars bought before this mod!***

You sure it works?

it will sure as hell work on my cars :) I had this applied for ages... but it won't work on every car.

this will very much depend on mapping, so imagine this, stock SLR textures are 256x256 if I'm not mistaken.. now lets say 50x120 of those pixels are mapped to front of the bumper.. if you paint, the sticker will only be applied to those pixels where the bumper is mapped.

now if you increase the paint texture 10x times it will obviously have more pixels for the bumpers UVW = higher resolution texture in game.

but if the bumper is not mapped properly to maximize the use of the UVW box/map then it will still look shit.. I 90% of the time map my parts so I can maximize the use of the UVW map that's why my e28 for e.g. will have this working fine.

if that makes sense...?

Mmmm, quite great idea. I was looking to do something similiar but had no I idea how to change the default mapping size. Good job! ;)

@JC - yeah. It makes sense. But I'm affraid that this mod work on few of a few of a few of mods.

Excluding your M5 :\

i was just trying to figure out how to make those new stickers look better!

7.   Posted by Jesus Christ   2014-10-12 16:12    

Keejay - try before and after ;) you'll see the difference.

There's only so much we can do, feel free to increase the textures to 2048x2048 but that will lag your game when painting, crashing etc :)

it's a limit of SLR, you can improve it to a certain extent but not too much.

on that note on e28 you've tested on chassis, which is a massive map = bigger the map, lower the resolution due to lack space/pixels to fit the map to.

something like a HOOD would be a good test, or a door, or a bumper.

it doesnt work on already made cars! you have to buy new car!

9.   Posted by KeeJay   2014-10-12 16:30    

Well. It totally have no sense... With 1280x1280 map I have worse quality decals (made in-game) than on 512 (made in PhotoShop)...

10.   Posted by doge   2014-10-12 16:32    

well.. it works perfect for me :)

if you want best quality, you can set it to 2048x2048, it doesn't crash afaik.

12.   Posted by vovi4   2014-10-12 18:40    

good :awesome:

13.   Posted by doge   2014-10-12 19:23    

unless you have bad pc, then it really lags when painting

14.   Posted by Jesus Christ   2014-10-12 20:24    

you made no sense.. dog, stop talking

15.   Posted by mindeliszz   2014-10-12 21:58    

i haven't noticed any fps drop when i set all textures to 2048 on JC E92, but it lags a bit when updating it, i.e. painting or crashing to a wall(scratching paint).

Great mod,I'm gonna try it out in a bit.

How to download?

I have a mid custom PC and the game lags like hell when doing basically anything. The game works just perfect when those textures were 256x256.

(I can provide my PC spec if you want to see the problem)

So.. i replaced the files in the cars/textures folder. but the decals don't seem to work.

Maybe i should try updating the custom decal i already made.
