I worked really hard on mine. I based it off of the color scheme used by Gundam and R-1 (from Super Robot Taisen), just because that's the color scheme I'd always use in Armored Core just to make my machine look different from all the gritty realistic designs in AC.

So naturally, I figured I might as well use the same color scheme for this game (for some reason, I don't know, I guess its a habit now).

But then I just realized something. Does this game even show your custom color scheme to other players? I know that in a lot of games, when you use skins, only you see it unless other people happen to have the same model file as you.

If it doesnt, then wow, I wasted all my time on making painting my car for nothing. :-(

Oh well, at least it looks cool... I guess.

I don't know. When I race online, everyone is using the cars from their respective countries.

I really hope they can see my car, cuz it looks awesome now.

Here is a more recent screenshot:

Most of the better drivers turn other cars off by pressing O, it's a distraction.

No they can't see yours, unless you have the paid version of Nations or TrackMania United and used your key for Nations.

Damn, oh well. I wasted all that time for nothing. Well, at least it looks cool... to me at least, maybe not to other people who won't be able to see it, heh.
