    Default Changing Rim Colours

    Hello everyone!

    I tried to do a mod of Pontiac GTO rims. The inner part was planned to be red, including the thin arms. The other part should be yellow.

    I managed to paint everything, but ingame i can't really see colour on the rims. They only have a light red touch, where it was planned to be, yellow wasn't recognisable.

    I use DxtBMP and GIMP, all saving is done with DxtBMP.

    Do i have to make a normal map, like the numberplates need?
    Or which filter do i have to use to make my rims work properly?

    Yes, i followed it step by step. Because of this tut i learned how to change textures and already made some custom gauges, which can be read better (exterior view from behind). May post some screens tomorrow if someone is interested..

    I can see light color changes, but only if i have a close look at it.

    Please help me and tell me, how i can make some really red/yellow rims!!!

    Tried the video tutorial too, but it doesnt help

    I've tried to make green/black rims but the green was a really light sea foam instead of bright lambo green. Tried to make all red rims to see if it was every color it was done with, and the red was really light salmon colored. Must be a setting in TDU.

    But how do some people manage to create shiny yellow rims? I couldn't even see the yellow part of my rims!

    I really couldn't say how they did it, and the translation google gives me is a bit wacky. Maybe you should ask the maker what he did.

    It depends which orange you do because the colour you choose in photoshop doesn;t mean that's what you'll see in game. If you're going for colours, you'll just have to experiement with different shades.

    It seems that the darker the colors the better they show up.
