    Vivace skin making has just started, turns out you gonna need skin.materials.json instead of materials.cs found on older mod and use png instead of dds, because vivace uses new json skin system and it uses png instead of dds when i opened the json in the vivace zip file

    Annotation2020-04-13234744.png

    and here's an code reference for vivace skin.materials.json

    Code:
    {
      "vivace.skin.maki" : {
        "name" : "vivace.skin.maki",
        "class" : "Material",
        "persistentId" : "",
        "Stages" : [
          {
            "colorMap" : "vehicles/common/null.dds",
            "normalMap" : "vehicles/vivace/vivace_n.dds",
            "pixelSpecular" : true,
            "specularMap" : "vehicles/common/null.dds",
            "specularPower" : 128,
            "useAnisotropic" : true
          },
          {
            "colorMap" : "vehicles/vivace/vivace_d.dds",
            "normalMap" : "vehicles/vivace/vivace_n.dds",
            "pixelSpecular" : true,
            "specularMap" : "vehicles/vivace/vivace_s.dds",
            "specularPower" : 32,
            "useAnisotropic" : true
          },
          {
            "colorMap" : "vehicles/vivace/vivace_c.dds",
            "instanceDiffuse" : true,
            "normalMap" : "vehicles/vivace/vivace_n.dds",
            "overlayMap" : "vehicles/vivace/maki/vivace_maki.png",
            "pixelSpecular" : true,
            "specularMap" : "vehicles/vivace/vivace_s.dds",
            "specularPower" : 128,
            "useAnisotropic" : true
          },
          {}
        ],
        "alphaRef" : 0,
        "dynamicCubemap" : true,
        "mapTo" : "vivace.skin.maki",
        "materialTag0" : "beamng",
        "materialTag1" : "vehicle",
        "translucent" : true,
        "translucentBlendOp" : "None"
      }
    }

    You can use a materials.cs and .dds for the vivace, That's how I made mine and it worked fine.

    screenshot_2020-04-13_22-37-47.png

    What I used in the materials.cs file;
    Code:
    singleton Material("vivace.skin.GoodSmile")
    {
        mapTo = "vivace.skin.GoodSmile";
        colorPaletteMap[2] = "vehicles/vivace/GoodSmile/GoodSmile_Racing_UV1.dds";
        overlayMap[2] = "vehicles/vivace/GoodSmile/GoodSmile_Racing.dds";
        diffuseMap[2] = "vehicles/vivace/vivace_c.dds";
        specularMap[2] = "vehicles/vivace/vivace_s.dds";
        normalMap[2] = "vehicles/vivace/vivace_n.dds";
        diffuseMap[1] = "vehicles/vivace/vivace_d.dds";
        specularMap[1] = "vehicles/vivace/vivace_s.dds";
        normalMap[1] = "vehicles/vivace/vivace_n.dds";
        diffuseMap[0] = "vehicles/common/null.dds";
        specularMap[0] = "vehicles/common/null.dds";
        normalMap[0] = "vehicles/vivace/vivace_n.dds";
        specularPower[0] = "128";
        pixelSpecular[0] = "1";
        specularPower[1] = "32";
        pixelSpecular[1] = "1";
        specularPower[2] = "128";
        pixelSpecular[2] = "1";
        diffuseColor[0] = "1 1 1 1";
        diffuseColor[1] = "1 1 1 1";
        diffuseColor[2] = "1 1 1 1";
        useAnisotropic[0] = "1";
        useAnisotropic[1] = "1";
        useAnisotropic[2] = "1";
        castShadows = "1";
        translucent = "1";
        translucentBlendOp = "None";
        alphaTest = "0";
        alphaRef = "0";
        dynamicCubemap = true;
        instanceDiffuse[2] = true;
        materialTag0 = "beamng"; materialTag1 = "vehicle";
    };

    RX-8s are pretty neat yes. Just make sure to keep oil topped up and apex seals in good condition. You can put your Senko itasha on that.

    i know people hate on rotaries for being unreliable, and then people hate on those people, but it is the sad truth of the rotary engine, especially the rx8s. They need to be rebuilt, and I wouldn't recommend buying one right on the "will probably need to be rebuilt soon" mark.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanyways, do your research on those cars before buying them. You don't wanna end up with a ticking time bomb.

    A built 13b will run you big money, idk about a stock one, probably aint cheap, and renesis rebuild will run you 5 grand

    I would expect so, but you can also do the rebuild yourself
    On the other hand, you can rebuild it yourself, but that is rather painstaking (just retorquing bolts about.... a million times)
    If you're interested in watching some dude torque down a bunch of bolts a million times while roasting his friend, watch this episode of Garage Garage:
    If you wanna rebuild it yourself, read the first three posts on this: https://www.rx8club.com/series-i-tech-garage-22/there-recommended-full-rebuild-kit-260182/
    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanyways we're getting way off topic, I apologize, makaphin.

    iirc it's a common joke that a rotary's apex seals go after 100k miles
    Getting one in that state is likely going to cause more trouble shortly after buying
    I'd recommend you make sure there is a rotary specialist near you location and you can afford the maintenence.

    Hi
    My most wanted Skin wich is missing in my opinion is an Azur lane Prinz Eugen Skin (preferd for the old Pessima) , i would love you for that <3 xD And i would really like some Spacebattleship Yamato Skin of Yukki Mori, Captain Okita or the ship itself. But i think a Jin-Rou or Jin-Roh Skin of the armoured soldiers would really fit the Moonhawk or the Barstow. I hope that you can at least make a Prinz Eugen Skin because i....like her...
    Pls excuse my english ;)

    I send some Pictures that would fit the Prinz Eugen skin

    Translated by my friend for German:
    Hey, entschuldige bitte, aber alle slots für designs die ich habe sind zur Zeit belegt. Ich weiß, dass viele Leute Prinz Eugen wirklich cool finden, und ein Auto mit ihr haben wollen, aber ich schaffe immer nur eine bestimmte Anzahl an itasha. Wenn ich noch mehr machen würde, würde es zu lange dauern bis ich mit denen fertig bin, die ich jetzt schon versprochen habe. Wenn du magst kannst du aber gerne bis zum nächsten Update warten, dann nehme ich wieder neue itasha-design Anfragen an.
