Are repaints of buses frowned upon? Even with prior permission and approval of the original creator?

And also will the new paint jobs appear to other users on a online server?

Many Thanks

If you have got permission from the original creator to repaint a bus, then it is OK, even if people do not like it.

You would have to give the other players the ar file that has the repaint in order for to appear online.

If other people online didnt have that AR, would they just see a plain white vehicle or something?

Cheers Smile

They will see a mini cooper. Or, it will only show the livery which is in there .AR , so if you edit it, they will fail to see it.

So say i have a double decker bus, they will see a Mini Cooper?

So really, if that above statement is true, its best to download buses which are free and available to the public , so the chance of them seeing it aswell is increased?

Thanks Smile

I think it would be easiest to play with people that you know and/or arrange online games ahead of time so that everyone has the same add-ons as each other.

Well, send them the buses which will be used in the cruise. So if you have a foriegn vehicle, they will see it. If the other player doesn't have the vehicle in there Directory, they will see a default mm2 car...

Yes, there will be texture files in the texture folder that is located inside the ar file. You can load those into Photoshop and edit them.

Well, if you open the vehicles .AR, you should see about 6 folders, Aud, Texture, etc... open the Texture folder and you will see a large array of files, lok for the one with the most obvious name, like 123_body.tga or something like that. If you cant find the one with the body texture, go through the individual ones.

I used to repaint cars all the time. It shouldn't be a problem unless you plan on releasing it to the public or showing pictures of it online. In that case, it would be best to ask permission first.

I didn't think you needed to ask permission if you were just showing pictures of a reskin? If so, a few people I know are screwed...

You don't need to ask permission when showing a re-skin, however it's all about being courteous when it comes to showing other peoples work. By that I mean a bare minimum of stating where the original work came from.
