How to create custom liveries in Project CARS

Project CARS, according to fans, is one hell of a racing game. We’ve got our own review on the way, but its safe to say that the game is a hit and has been well worth the wait. It’s gorgeous, cars are fast ‘n furious and the in-game AI would sooner smash the paint off of your vehicle than give you a gap. Sounds rad. But what would be even better than that? Custom liveries on your car, that’s what. Here’s how you can achieve that.

The catch here of course, being that only PC gamers will be able to do this. Sorry PlayStation and Xbox One fans, you’re out of luck on this feature. Having a bit of photoshop knowledge (And Adobe Photoshop or GIMP itself) will also help, but you can get everything you need to get started, right over here on the Project Cars forums. It’s a neat little feature, so expect to see plenty of custom jobs from the growing Project CARS community that happens to be rather active right now.

It’s not too challenging. Basically, you’ve just got to line your liveries up, with some photoshop on a template such as this:


Line everything up, chop, edit and change as you see fit. I recommend putting Peniston Oil liveries on all the doors, for all the giggles. The instructions are easy enough, so go make us proud. 4K liveries are supported, provided that your PC can handle all those extra pixels and whatnot. Massive thanks to Uberutang for the link.

  1. I am enjoying the sweet blue bits out of project cars, apart from it looking as beautiful as it does, the cars handle quite nicely, I’ve managed to make many a tripod out of some Renault clios and have been sliding away in some pretty rad atom ariels, just be warned though, it’s not a need for schpeed, it’s relentlessly unforgiving like a proper racing game and you’ll enjoy the soundtrack of the cars as they, either speed past you, or you pass them, a brilliant racing sim, would recommend it to anyone who likes racing but doesn’t have four hundred,sixty eight thousand, three hundred and twenty two dollars to spend on a single race at Jannies benoni raceway that has the cardboard boxes to break your crash…

      It might have been fake, but it was light hearted, funny and they travelled to great places, people loved that combination. Im sad its over.

        I watched it a bit, years ago, but it just got too much over the years and I didn’t enjoy it anymore. Quickly went downhill for me and I never much liked Jeremy.

    Thats the only downside of Project Cars.. Was hoping it would be a GT or Forza clone… By that I mean upgrading your engine, turbos etc etc… You know a RACING SIMULATOR!

    Other than that its still an awesome game though…

      Erm…it is a RACING simulator. Race teams don’t use prize money to throw bigger turbos on a car. They pretty much build the car to the regulations and then stick to it through the season.

      What you’re talking about is a car CUSTOMISATION simulator.

        Not really, cars with stock tires and stock parts isnt really a “RACING” simulator. More like a arcade racer with some “simulator” assets. Thats about it…

          Most of the cars in the game are not street cars. They’re from various forms of motorsport, e.g. GT4. Those sports are regulated and the cars in the game reflect that.

          The game definitely is a racing simulator. The cars behave realistically and are incredibly customisable in terms of gear ratios, suspension geometry, even restrictor plates on the engine and how much you want your radiator obscured during a race! Race events include free practice, qualifying and the actual race. The track surfaces are modelled realistically, tyre degradation, fuel burn, damage and aerodynamics are all modelled. The weather is realistic for the location and time of day/year.

          You can even adjust your seat position for god’s sake! In terms of being a racing simulator, project cars blows gran turismo and forza away.

          The fact that you think the simulator aspects are an afterthought shows a startling misunderstanding of the game and the whole story behind it’s development. I can only assume you haven’t actually played the game for more than 5 minutes.

            The fact is you cant upgrade your cars. You have to drive them as they are.. STOCK! I’m specifically talking about the road cars. thats my opinion. It’s like having an asshole, we all have one.

            and as for me not playing the game for longer as 5 minutes

            If you’re only talking about the road cars then why not say so to begin with? You want to be able to customise cars. That’s a valid opinion and you’re perfectly entitled to have it. That’s not what you said though.

            You complained that one of the most comprehensive racing simulators out there is not a racing simulator because of the inability to customise your car as you progress and win races (a mechanic which is not generally present in motorsport). Racing means trying to go around a track quicker than someone else. There isn’t another game that simulates racing the entire racing experience better.
