Way to texture a vehicle with a visible decal on the side



  • I am fairly new to GTA Modding, is there any way for me to take a mod (e.g. https://www.gta5-mods.com/vehicles/unmarked-land-rover-discovery-sport) and add a texture so that the base colour can be changed while there is still a decal over the top of the colour.
    For example, this vehicle has the template within the YTD file, however, there is no texture on the vehicle. You can change the vehicle colour in-game, however, we would like to add a transparent image that is overlayed over this.
    Hopefully someone can help



  • @bringrose as long as it is mapped for a template you can just add a decal over it as long as it has no background, and you’ll be able to change the colours of the car



  • @Reacon would that be something that needs to be done before it is converted into the YFT file. If not is there someway for me to add this mapping so that this can be completed?



  • @bringrose as long as the ytd file includes something named (name)_sign_1 it will work, just be a b*tch to find the placements if it doesn’t come with a template



  • At the moment the I have added a texture of simply a grid pattern, there was no file ending _sign_1 to replace so I have added the texture as sheriff_sign_1 as the YTD and YTF files are called sheriff, once in game if I spawn in the sheriff vehicle it has the correct model however I do not see the grid texture on the vehicle it is just its base colour



  • @bringrose because it’s unmarked, the author probably didn’t make the vehicle to have a livery thus making it impossible to add one (I didn’t actually look at the car in question at first)



  • @Reacon Thanks for the input, I will try and talk to the author.

    Yeah, that really is a bitch (nearly undoable, manually, really). I believe that's why the Jester (is it?) is so popular for decal modding, as it has a remarkably straightforward decal layout.
