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

Recommended Posts

Soo....  How 'bout that Steam workshop for liveries that some have been wanting, looks better and better every day, eliminating some of these jumping to conclusions scenarios.  Not that the idea is perfect, but a curated (ie no duplicate or plagiarism) area for liveries with 1 click install sounds pretty appealing.

God dammit
No one asked me about a pernmission to touch my livery/skin so SHUT UP and try not to talk about, how you should modify it.
Leave that Cossy now!
Wait... what?

You're complaining that someone modded your modded file?

Calm down, bro. They are all mods and they are meant to be shared between each other, and discussed upon fixing them or modifying them. We are in a community, no need to rage at each other. :)

Allow me to decide that i wish to see or not.
I spent hours to make a livery and i don't want to see that anybody touch it or modify it.
If you ask me out, i'll make it again or fix it for you as i did many times.  Peace

It is not for you to decide. The livery is Martini Racing's copyrighted artwork and the logos are Martini & Rossi's registered trademarks. It is up to them to enforce their use in digital representations. So unless you have been granted license to use them by the copyright and trademark holders, assume people will respect your claim to copyright exactly as much as you respected Martin Racing's.

This conversation is going to a wrong direction. I've never talked about any copyrights issues.

About Martini racing's designs, you're right about Martini logo, which is a trade mark. But i didn't touch it i never modify it, it looks as the same as someone designed. If someone use their look for a car, that is good for the owners, because of the free commercial representation of their product.

Let me show you an example: you can reproduce Mona Lisa from scratch with a mustache by your own taste, that is your job and everybody should respect that is your own reproduction of an artwork, but you can't modify the original content made by Leonardo da Vinci  with a brush to paint onto a mustache,  that is not allowed. 

Now we are talking about a material made by someone for the community for free of charge. You should respect the amount of spare times which used to create something what you can use for your own  joy.  Did you ever made a skin which based on a real material? Then you should know how a hard work to reproduce something on a 3D mesh with its UVW maps. It takes  a lot of spare times to find the way to  join parts on a different angles to look as IRL.  My creations are never released under a Creative Commons licence. If you can't respect a modder's job you should enjoy only original contents made by CM. I am sad that I have to protect my own creations which are made for free.

I am just trying to point out that your claim to ownership over the digital representations you have created is seen as illegitimate because they are assumed to be unauthorized and most likely fall afoul of US and EU copyright and trademark laws.

You clearly don't agree this is the case, 
but it if your interpretation were the correct interpretation, then Codemasters wouldn't be paying out the nose for licenses to create digital representations of these cars. Making a digital facsimile of something is generally not considered original work. The Audi S1 is a perfect example, CM is not licensed to create any other livery than the single livery currently in the game, and so we have one single livery for this car.

I am not trying to take some moral high ground, or disrespect the work of modders. I love the modding scene and am glad it has flown under the radar for so long. I have personally benefited from it and hope it continues to fly under the radar. I find some copyright law very dubious and anti-consumer, and I have my own copyrights violated on a daily basis. I am simply presenting the argument as to why your work is not seen as "your creation", legally.

You don't have to apologise @wezel1977 I agree with you, we really need someone to make that skin, not only for the inevitable CMR vs D:R comparison vids, but because I need it to complete my in game blue and white RS collection.

@SkiddyMcCrash i'm sure someone (i hope) will make that skin and i hope codemasters can make a proper sound file also.
I must also admit i've only driven the cossy for hours down the Wales stages in dirt rally.

Nice work @mesa , I have msged the link to this guy on youtube called Barnacules, he knows Tanner personally and I thought Tanner would like to know that you have made his car skin so nicely and that now he can play as himself because he likes playing Dirt Rally.

I am wondering if you have made any Group B Audi skins yet? Is there a page that has all the skins you have made so far?

@Rygar86 thanks for the message to Barnacules!
I saw that YT video with Tanner, that's the reason i made a skin for him ;)
Now we have to wait for Rallycross expansion for a while, but Tanner should drive his own car for that time . I linked his Facebook page to my screenshots too, so i hope he will know about my skin
I have a FB and a WEB page too, just follow the "Download skin" link under the screenshots.  But anyway here is all Dirt Rally skins already made.

Great job @mesa ! Thanks for showing us Americans some love.  Nice use of flat textures too. 

Hope Codies updates the UI to allow for New liveries to show up instead of us replacing the old ones, along with somehow updating the livery selection pix too.  

Keep churning them out, looking really good.

A couple of shots showing my 2012 Fiesta RS WRC (Latvala) and some of the added details on the front bumpers, with all the rivets, holes, bolts, etcetera.
I'll make a package and release the skin soon even if is not 100% complete, because I'm still figuring out how to make the "matte exagons". They barely show on real stage picture, and are more visible in the press photo shoot but still I can't see them very well.

Edit: Download link at RaceDep.
