Ok besides the Bandit and General Lee skins which are cool, I was hoping to see many more cool paint styles. I hope Bugbear makes it simpler to create skins in the future.
Just take a look at all these beautiful paint jobs from the past! http://community.bugbeargames.com/index.php/topic,7484.msg78635.html#msg78635

With the duplicate skin issue, it has put many skinners off of doing custom skins the last few months. :(

Skin slots!

Indeed, to add different textures to the paint jobs you need to edit the .vepa files.

So for European 3 navigate to vehicle/07_european/part/paint and open the first paint, 01.vepa. In the second field you can see 'Texture' and if you flick through the different .vepa files you notice that most of them point to the same texture, and to add more textures you simply need to make each paint file reference a different texture.

Ah yes that makes a lot of sense. wonder why thy limit it to only 10 slots? hope they make at least 30 slots.

Offline I believe, online Wreckfest will think your game is modded with custom veda files.

But is there a limit how many skins ( styles ) can be listed in the car paint menu?  But I did have 20 skins listed ( had to scroll the paint menu to see them all ) when working out the bugs to get the new Cops and Robbers skins into the mod.
