Not sure if this is exactly the place for it, but I know plenty have asked......

Co-ordinates for graphic placement on the front wing end plates on the E23 Lotus F1 car.

Be in overhead/Top view!
Placement for Left side, x: -247 y:385
Placement for right side, x -111 y:385

Hope this helps.

could someone tell me the settings or how to do a matte or primer finish? I cant get the shine/ clear coated look to go away. I wanted to make an old rusty looking car but its to shiny.

Go to the paint car tabs, then the one that paints the entire body, select not the first tab (regular color pallette) or the manufacturer's colors, but the third one. Ithas the carbon fibre, metallic finishes etc. One of the first couple that looks red is matte finish, select it and then hit the "X" (?) buttton I think and you can change the red to whatever customized color you like, but it will stay matte...

Without creating a new thread or going too far off topic -

When applying decals, why is it so 'hard' to mirror left to right? I find the preset option no good as usually it'll be reversed and look wrong. As a recent example on my Jag XFRS, one decal on left side (for example) was x 110 y 150 and fitted on the sideskirt perfect. Changed to the right side, same position but x -110 y 150 and hardly fitted on. To make it look right I ended up with x -112.4 y 148.5 or whatever it was.

Am I missing something blindingly obvious. Its always been like this but just got to the stage where its annoyed me so asking if Im in the wrong somewhere!

It'll vary from car to car Chris - some are better than others but it seems to be something to do with how they've been modelled - not anything you're doing wrong. Just one of those little quirks you get used to over time of working with the livery editor.

Ok thanks. I put a stripe down the dead centre on my BRZ and that didnt even line up with the Subabru badge!

Best way is to use the panel gaps to obtain true center if you dont have a hood badge etc to line up to.
Same theory works on the sides too, you see a lot of shift when inserting left to right on some cars so throw lines up and over and around will help with the switch.

Does anyone here know the coordinates to the inside walls directly behind the Gallardo Superleggera's rear window? I've made a Nera adaptation for the current generation Gallardo Superleggera, but it's technically incomplete with that area being left unpainted.

Since we can't mix matte and gloss paints on the same parts of a car via the vinyls and whatnot, I decided to make the matte areas carbon fiber instead via base paint (looks more real; can Turn t0 just give us vinyls with the same color options as the paint?), thus the rest of the car needs to be covered in black. I cannot find the coordinates to that area of the car, assuming it IS cover-able.

Hello Forza Community!

Back on Forza Motorsport 5, I discovered a "Paint Trick" which allowed the player to change the colour of materials that don't allow you to tint.

I actually made a video tutorial to prove it: Video Tutorial

I checked on Forza Horizon 2 once it was released, and sadly it doesn't work for that game.

Although, this "trick" does work on Forza Motorsport 6, which is what I'm going to show you how to do today.

Here's an example:



This is on the Caparo T1.

I've painted the body in purple-ish white matte carbon kevlar, and the rims are turquoise diamond plate.

So, now you're wondering, how do you do such a thing without photoshop?

Well, here are the steps:

1. - Pick the vehicle you wish to use

2. - Go to the "Customize" Tab and select "Paint Car"

3. - Select the "Paint" option

4. - Select the part of the car you wish to paint (Body, Hood, Mirrors, Wing or Rims)

5. - Go to the "Special Colors" tab

6. - Select one of the following:

- Carbon Fiber Matte
- Carbon Kevlar Polished
- Carbon Kevlar Matte
- Steel Polished
- Steel Semigloss
- Steel Brushed
- Steel Galvanized
- Steel Damascus
- Brass Polished
- Brass Semigloss
- Brass Brushed
- Copper Polished
- Copper Semigloss
- Copper Brushed
- Gold
- Diamond Plate

7. - Select that part of the car again (Body, Hood, Mirrors, Wing or Rims)

8. - Go to the "Previous Colors" tab and move 1 (one) over to the right

9. - The option "Color Fine Tune" should show up for the "X" button, select it

10 - "Fine Tune" to the desired colour

11. - Press "A" twice to fully select the colour

Congrats! You now have tinted or fine tuned the colour of a material that otherwise wouldn't have been able to!

Have Fun!

any plans for photoshop templates in the future? i'm new to forza but have been doing livery design professionally (mostly INDYCAR and Indy Lights) for the last 10 years and would love to put some of my car designs in Forza 6. The Dragon Racing Formula-E car is one of my designs, so it's very cool to have that in the game, as it was cool to have my Graham Rahal Midas #15 in Forza 5, but I would like to add more of my real life designs to these. I don't think I can do a livery with my controller and a steering wheel though!

Lotus E23 aero parts positions. After moving things around in the paint shop to find all the bits, I have a list of the positions of the aero parts, and colour coded them in the picture. I just hope it all makes sense :D

When painting a race car.

Go into paint and change the a part of the cars color and it will only take off the sponsors and leave the design on the car.


This might be old news but I just randomly discovered this and to lazy to see if it was mentioned ever.


UPDATE: I went to another race car and to previously used paints and I could put the AF Corse Design on my McLaren GT3 car

Update 2: You can do it on any car from update 1, But it doesn't turn out well on production cars.

Yes, makes it easy to do a Castrol paint on the #2 Civic and put your own name/number on her.
It seems to be hit or miss, some cars do this, some don't. I think it's a great way for newer painters to start tinkering with a car and still get great looking results on track.

When doing a replica paint, one useful resource you can find online is a sticker sheet from that car's model kit. That will give you a general list of logos that you're going to need for that design.

Models can vary depending on manufacturer or the race depicted however, so they're not always 100% accurate:

I had previously known that applying a vinyl shape or changing the wheel colour could give you the base design but had never really tried applying to other cars. Naturally I got a bit curious and my word are there some interesting combinations. I recommend mixing your livery up with the cadillac limo.

Also after changing the other Honda WTCC, not castrol, and reapplying used colours I found a livery whos base colour is black or green, the colour at the bottom is irrelevant, and has CH_1 all over or in certain places on the car. Found playing around with this to produce some interesting results

Just tried it, it's a pretty neat effect. You could for example port the Team Forza patterns over to hoods of other cars (works reasonably well on the BAC Mono) and use it as the base for a new design.

Officially, there are none.

Unofficially, you'll have to start Googling. The paint tools haven't changed much since Forza Motorsport 3, so any tutorials for older games should still apply to some degree to making designs in this game.
