PLEASE NOTE:

Forza Motorsport 2 features a "Paint Job" mode (called the "Livery") where users can paint the cars they own. The base color of the car can be changed, and new skins can be designed by manipulating and stamping pre-set shapes found in the editor. A user is able to put 1000 of these shapes on each side of the car, and 1500 onto the hood/roof/trunk of the car*.

There is no import option, which makes these all the more impressive. Time and care have been put into these designs, due to the nature of the editor.

FM2 also sports a car auction mode, where users can sell their cars online. These cars can be purchased with credits earned in the career mode (whether on or offline). The auction house can be viewed through the game, or online through any web-browser at http://forzamotorsport.net/auctions/

Here is a video that shows you how these sorts of drawing come into fruition. In the video, the user starts from a finished work, and then removes the layers individually...reverse engineering it so you can understand how he came up with the finished product.

Hey Benjamin, maybe you should edit your first post and point out what the Livery editor is all about, so people understand what is involved when it comes to making one of these.

Ie.
Forza Motorsport 2 features a "Paint Job" mode (called the "Livery") where users can paint the cars they own. The base color of the car can be changed, and new skins can be designed by manipulating and stamping pre-set shapes found in the editor. A user is able to put 1000 of these shapes on each side of the car, and 1500 onto the hood/roof/trunk of the car*.

There is no import option, which makes these all the more impressive. Time and care have been put into these designs, due to the nature of the editor.

you can copy and paste that if you think this is a good idea.

Awesome, I did one years back in Forza but it blows mine out of the water.



The best part of Forza for me was the custom designs so if I ever buy Forza 2 it will be for that rather than the cars themselves. It is amazing how creative some people are with their designs. I love the "Things break" car as well :lol

You guys are killing me. My copy is...for whatever reason, sitting in a post office in texas while I'm sitting here in Iowa. Probably won't have it until thursday or so.

By the way...everybody should add me on XBL (gamertag is WHOAguitarninja). My computer time is EXTREMELY limited this summer (I'm mooching off my room mate's computer right now, I don't have a computer of my own again until august), however, I WILL be on live almost every evening. I probably won't be around much to check the forums but I definitely want to race against you guys on live and hope somebody will send me the GAF liveries when I finally get my hands on the game. From what I saw in the other thread they look great. Did we end up going with the "mix and match yourself" approach of having a few logos that people can use to build a gaf themed livery for themselves, or is it one fully developed livery for all of GAF?

The one I posted before was just the scrap-table.

Here is the (nearly complete) Gray Fox MGS-2000




It's STILL not yet complete. I've got about 300 layers left to play with, so I want to make the best of them. hopefully, it'll turn out okay.

These paint jobs rule. I am considering picking this game up. I need to know. Is it possible just to become an auction house car collector? I could care less about upgrading my own car I just want to buy some of these awesome paint job cars. Meaning can I make enough money inthe game without really upgrading?

It would be really difficult I think, to be honest, especially considering the prices some of the best ones are going for. Your best bet would be to maybe find a niche in livery editing that might work as a steady source of income (like a ridiculously easy LOST livery) and that would allow you to buy cars without having to go too far into career mode.

But most likely the only way you'd be able to scrounge up the money is by playing through the game, unless you find an "investor" willing to gift you a ridiculously awesome car that you could then auction to cover most if not all of your collecting career.

Other two threads stay bumped due to constant posting. This allows people to see something fantastic that might otherwise sink to other pages. Its much less intimidating than the actual forza thread as well.

Its amazing what can be done with simple shapes. I'm guessing the Livery (however its spelt) Editor has a freehand tool/brush? I so want to get this game now and start designing some exteriors.

That 300 one (in regards to detail) is on a whole other level

I want to know how the editor works. These are all done with squares and rectanges and freehand brushes on an analog stick?

I just don't get some people. Sure, some of the cars look cool and its cool to see that stuff on cars, but buying the game for it? The best racing game ever and people just want to play with a brushless paint.

On a related note, I stand by "the windwaker" is best so far. The metal gear face though, wow. Like I said, i'd rather just pull out the tablet and paint it for 6 hours than draw it in the game =\. Modus is ****ing incredble.
