DIRT 4 - CUSTOM LIVERIES, MODS & TOOLS, DISCUSSION ETC.

Just tried that a couple of minutes ago, it repacks it but does come up with an error at the end of the packing process saying the file was bigger (mine was by 4 whole bytes!).
I managed to load the game up, select the car and livery, but crashes on loading the stage with an error report etc... No luck at the minute for me.

I guess we can only hope for the dev of tool to have time and desire ;) 

When I will have time and desire I will update the script

im still going to do this livery as requested for a while already. but im not going to start before we find a way to repack the files, yes there are xml files in the nefs but i dont know if they are for the in car games probably they are but we still cant repackage them on the nefs so it doesn't matter much, IMO making mods with the unpacked files without being able to repackage them is a waste of time

Yes, I saw it after by going on the equivalent subject for Dirt Rally.

I began this livery from Sebastien Loeb Racing's announcement on Twitter but the measures between 208 RX and 208 T16 must be different by assuming that it would be the same files between DR and D4 (it's what I had made for Renault 5 Turbo and the Alpine between D3 and DR).

If you want, I can cross you my docs
(I have already realized the rally's sticker with the number and got back all the logos)

For those that it interest, I have all the elements for Mkinen & Loix's Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 6 :)

Sounds good, I can definitely do renders of the skins you're doing before they can be used in the game. :)

After I spent quite for extract and find the good files, a small overview of Makinen's Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI :)


As @YorAlcoholicDad, I mainly bought the game for liveries mods. That would be it's a pity that it is finally impossible
 
Thanks for your research !

If anyone is able to do this livery, it will be awesome ! 


I began it by basing me on DR's 208 RX  but I have the impression that the car's sizes are different, which does not produce much.
But I have all the stickers ready :)

I guess this is awkward, but I'm also planning on making this one :D Anyway, @OeildeLynx maybe you can help me with a few stickers? What's the name of the one after the number on the door (the blue on white, Can't make it out) and also the PCi one, is there another name for it or something, because searching for PCI logo didn't yield any results

After the car number, it's the rally's logo: " Rallye du Chablais ", in Switzerland.
For PCi, I finally found on Facebook.^^ PCi for "Pneus Centre International" in french. This is tyres specialist in Switzerland again.

I is done :) I even found an image of the actual watch. Didn't quite manage to fit the watch as it was on the R5 car, but I think this is close enough

don't want to nitpick but this a dirt rally mod, it should probably be on the dirt rally mods thread, also if you don't mind sharing the watch pic

i was looking at the cars files again, looking on the landrush trucks, looks like there are only 2 slots that we could make custom liveries the rest apparently use the branding suite, so i dont know if we could for an example have a full field of realistic liveries, modding its looking more and more difficult the more i look in to the files

This doesn't look promising. Any chance for some help on this? I know it was a grey area for Dirt Rally in terms of modding, that you didn't want to promote it I presume for licensing reasons, but also didn't want to discourage people who spend their time creating the artwork. Is it a case of actively helping the community breaches your licence agreements, whereas just turning a blind eye if we're successful isn't?

doesn't really matter until we can use it in game, i haven't made any liveries until now because of that, i fell like its a waste of time and effort to make liveries that we cant use in game
Wasn't a waste of effort at all - i couldn't wait to get the rag off that livery :D
5 minutes well spent.

Unpacking is not the problem, it's putting it all back together where we're stuck at the moment
Sorry, I mistook "Unpacking" and "Repacking".
Also I looked around other forums such as RaceDepartment, Xentax and Zenhax but nobody seems to interesting or researching DiRT4's .nefs files. I wish if Ryder25 came back and working on it.

Can't wait to do my own liveries, especially when the new league system is launched...
Would be too bad if all the cars have the same pattern (with varying colours) on their cars in the vids & screenshots from league races.

Come on Codies, give us a hint o:)

Also has anyone looked at modding "yourstage" ?kickup said in interviews there's allot more perameter changes possible for the devs but they linked them all to the two sliders for players
Pretty sure all the files are .nefs 
Ah crap,be nice to be fit to narrow Spain/add allot more jumps,dips,bumps to get closer to Irish type tar

Not really a mod but an addon.

I've got bored at work so I've started writing yet another dashboard app. Planning to release on GNU licensing for PC and Android.


Inspired by commercial product (http://z1simwheel.com/dashboard/road.cfm) and WRC+ telemetry window.
First iteration with the simplest template.
I'm having hard time thinking how to do the templating system on CSS and HTML or XML so it would be easy for anyone to make his own style.

You still waiting help from Codemasters developers for your wishing with livery modding?

Who want see his project moded, like game, or song, or film, or other work....
In future i think games will be have  only 1 file, and crypted  :)

So, good luck :)

Uhh, okay then. Pretty sure the Dirt Rally ACAT used a cheat engine, and didn't modify the database.bin, so there is an example. Where there's a will, there's a way.
