    I started painting cars using this tutorial, http://www.autosimsport.net/media/downloads/nkpskintutorial.zip , even if it is for Netkar, photoshop technique is the same for almost every sim.

    For making the DDS files for the GSC skins, you will need the to install the Nvidia plugin, https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-texture-tools-adobe-photoshop

    Then on the folder C:\GSC2012\GameData\Vehicles\"car"\ you copy the folder from another Team and rename it as you want for your Team.

    Inside this new folder, you will rename all the files for the Team drivers, Drivername99.DDS for the car, , the suit will be Drivername99Driver and the helmet Drivername Helmet.

    After, with photoshop you will save the files as DDS, type "DXT5 ARGB 8 bpp | interpolated alpha". and replace those ones that you renamed from the other Team.

    The VEH file will be Drivername99.VEH and you will need to open it with notepad and change these lines this way:

    DefaultLivery="Drivername99.DDS"
    Number=99
    Team="Your Team Name"
    Driver=" Drivername "
    Description="Kind of Car: Drivername #99"
    Engine="V8"
    Manufacturer="Engine manufacture"
    Classes="Car Class"

    FullTeamName=" Your Team Name"

    Any doubts, feel free to ask!

    Templates:

    V8

    FReiza

    Mini

    F3

    F Classic
