    maybe licensing.
    In PC1 they opened it after about 1 year.

    Basically whatever it takes to build this community just do it, take a longer term vision like Rainbow 6 Seige (which BTW Ubisoft is giving a free trial on all platforms 15th Feb). Another thing would be to put some coder/UI time into finally delivering Custom Offline Championships. Why wait for pc3/2020 when most of the pieces are there already?
    Modding wouldn't hurt DLC sales at all. Us modders deliberately try to create cars that won't come in DLC, and even if they did, people will still pay for the official version over a mod. This was proven in pC1.

    I made a whole new thread about my progress with modding and the scratch models we were creating for the game. SMS hid it and told me to wait. Its been a heck of a while since and I haven't received one word from them LMAO. We won't get an answer until more important things are addressed as said earlier.

    I'm purely speculating, but in the first DLC (and indeed the initial release) SMS included several branded skins, possibly the product of advertising / cross-branding. If these are by formal arrangement (i.e. contract) then it is possible, that the agreement includes some type of exclusivity clause or some arrangement whereby SMS can guarantee the advertisers that their skins will populate AI races. Allowing users to add additional AI skins could undermine this. If this is true, then those branding agreements might need to lapse before mods.txt is activated.

    Equally so, mods.txt was only activated for PC1 when the final patch was released. It's possible SMS will do the same here.

    That all does make sense.

    I'm pretty sure we got mods.txt before the 1 year mark tho. PCars 1 came out in May 2015, and I think our League had skins the very beginning of 2016.

    Maybe it's a 6 month license agreement, not a full year?? That would mean we're only a month or 2 away?!?!

    you're partly right. The custom livery tool by crowtrobot was here very early. But that was a real mod with extraxcted boot files etc.
    I think in March 2016 came the open mod with mods.txt file.
    Then Crowtrobot changed his Custom livery tool to that new situation.
    No hack needed anymore. Just .ref-files and folders with liveries and that mods.txt

    I’ve always wondered whether CrowRobot had some “help” from SMS. I say this because after PC1 was released the community was clambering for better custom livery support. Ian Bell wrote a post in response telling his guys to “make it happen”. It never did in the official game but soon CrowRobot’s excellent tool appeared.
