How does the game know what .gmt file is the wheel, I've read everything but I don't see how it's going to know what gmt file is the car's wheels.

is there some file with values which i have to define to point to the wheels?

yes I've had a look now and I understand how it refers to all of the car's parts but It's all a bit much for me, I'm in over my head here.
I found a website which hosts .z3d models of cars which had been taken from forza 3 and I ported it over to max etc. But Really I have no idea what I'm doing.

It would be good if there was a template car which came with a guide as to how everything is set up, in detail and a guide to workflow, that's the trouble I always have with getting models into games is that I don't know where to start and there is never any solid information on it, so frustrating and it just reminds me why I gave up the time before.

Well, there's a lot of information on Internet about how to put a car on rFactor 1, as it has been around for some years now.

The best way of learning is taking a look about how others do it. Have you taken a look to ISI's Rhez car files? as far as I remember that car was used by ISI as an example for the community. There're a pretty good amount of comments in order to help people to know how the rF system works.

Regards

take a look at .gen files


Instance=LFTIRE
Instance=RFTIRE
Instance=LRTIRE
Instance=RRTIRE

all objects loaded inside those instances will be recognized as wheels by the game and will move as wheels.

Instance=RFSPINDLE
Instance=LFSPINDLE
Instance=RRSPINDLE
Instance=LRSPINDLE

those will be part of the wheels but will move only up and down with the suspension (brake pads, drums, etc)



Regards.
