Pirelli 2012 tyres (sidewalls/2D rims) template preseason (v3 final)

Posted by xandy 

thanks to Excalibur's permission I can share:

- rim_template_2012_preseason_v3_final.psd with 2012 sidewalls/some rims and various alpha channels/misc markings
- set of generic preseason tyres textures (medres)

- based on Lee's 2010 and Excalibur's 2011 textures edited for 2012 preseason
- textures are meant to be used with Enzojz's 2D Rims Advanced tyre shape (edited version with narrower front tyre and camber included)

all credit for the original textures must go to Lee and Excalibur / for the shape to Enzojz
"the art and the craft are in the shape and the alpha channel"

Download template v3 final (incl shape and medres tex): [www.mediafire.com]

releases of textures using the template are welcome (no need to contact me), but please ask Excalibur for permission
the same applies if you want to release edited versions of the *.tex files or to include the textures in any mod etc (you know what I mean)

Nice tyres! Is there anyway we could just get the tex files? Also the black enkei rims should be on the OZ style rims.
a last one

@Jet - sorry for the late reply

holidays ended this week - so back to the job, no more time to play with gp4/gimp and no wheel's textures from me

but I have one (last one) more rim texture
- inverted oz logo

put the layers (also included are three plain rims) in the template from the first post, edit it as you like and do some wheels ;)

Download: included in v2 template - download see first post

thanks again to Excalibur, Lee, Enzojz ...

p.s. rimbolt.tex for Enzojz's shape is now in the zip

Melbourne textures

new set of hires wheel_*_*.tex for Melbourne (soft and medium)

yeah - preview looks rather dark but the textures work ok ingame imho
tex files contain uncompressed dds images - use Slimtex to resize and/or enable dxt5 compression

I'll do a set of hard tyres for the race in Sepang (medium and hard will be the dry compounds)
as soon as real life pictures are available I'll try my hand with the wet tyres

Download: see first post

thank you all again

preseason is over

preseason ended and no real rain in spain (found only pics with 2011-like sidewalls on wet tyres)
so - to round things up - a set of hires inter/wet wheel_*_*.tex similar to the dry tyres

also new is final v3 of the template package (incl shape and updated medres tex for all compounds)

Download: see first post

that's it from me
thank you for your feedback

P.S.: for those who want to do some wheels with the template the rotation values I used (with gimp) - radial motion blur 15° for wheel_*_1 and 35° for wheel_*_2

The tyres look great. But could you please tell me how to get the slick surface? Didn't find any link which is still online...
thanks ;)
I use vesuvius' fantastic pirelli treads: [www.grandprixgames.org]
you have to rotate the textures by 90° to use them with Enzojz's shape though
can someone please reupload the template? link not work
thanks ;)

can someone let me know what the link to download the most recent tyre file is as I would like my 2009 cars to have the 2012 tyres :)
