Oh, sorry!
What do you mean with aluminium foil? What texture are you looking for?
Lost Glitches said this in a post on the previous page. How do you create aluminium foil? That texture has different names, aluminium foil, diamond livery, sparkles in the color. The texture mostly appears on Sport cars like the Pariah. I want 2 know how 2 create it in Save Editor. Does anyone know how?
Answers will be appreciated!

So I have a few questions: how much of what's being said here applies to say, Xbox one console for example. Additionally, I myself have never heard of or seen modded tire smoke; the closest I've encountered was an old car I had which had this purple colored tire smoke despite white being selected. I also have a turismo which appears to have modded fluro blue rims? Rims are colored stock and appear dark blue, but if rims are changed it defaults to normal fluro blue.

also wanted to add that, I have a vehicle which appears to have modded smoke, while still having "white" selected in lsc.

Hello! :biggrin:
Everything written in the main thread (which is still under construction, will work on it when I get more time) also applies for XBox One, but as is common knowledge today, XBox One does not support save editing, so coming across a "true" modded car on there is rare.

For the tyre smoke question, it is likely because it's a Crew Smoke, where you had purple as a Crew Colour back then, then switched Crew/Crew Colour. This confuses the LSC menu to believe that you have Crew Smoke on, but under a different RGB/hex value, and will default itself White Tyre Smoke. Overall, it's just a visual bug.

And for your Turismo question, you've just applied LSC Fluorescent Blue to its Stock Wheels; there are many vehicles that support the option to paint their Stock Wheels, and the method on how to do it is here. The reason why it shows as a darker blue is because of the stock wheels themselves; they naturally dim the wheel colour. The same effect can be seen on the Slamvan's, Rat-Truck's and Elegy RH8's wheels, just to name a few.

Hope this answers some things :smile:

Well, there are different textures to choose from there.
Which one does the so-called "aluminium foil" texture look like if you look at the Textures spoiler on the main thread?

uh chrome. but as was said before that's not a unique texture, but I believe a graphical anomaly unique to the pariah If you put crew color under chrome. Might exist on some other cars as well

That is true, as that graphical anomaly is linked to the vehicle's model. The Dubsta2 has it too, but to a lesser degree. This game is just overall weird :biggrin:

Can you edit textures in Google Chrome like with the crew colours when you click to "inspect element"?

Ah, scratch that, I'm a sleepy idiot. xXlSweatBoxlXx xXlSweatBoxlXx I thought you said it was about the crew colours, my mistake. But no, it isn't possible to edit your Crew Colour's default texture; it will always be set to utility unfortunately.

The Colours & Textures Thread
(Crew Colours, HEX values and more)

LT65H3w.gif

This thread is an extension to the Vehicle Merging Thread, but since colours are a huge topic, and can be used for other things than merging, they deserve a post for themselves.



This thread is under construction. The information below may or may not be 100% factual.



Hello!

This thread has been created to help the community understand the difference between colours, textures, what crew colours do, and how to spot "artificial" colours.



"What exactly is a 'texture' in GTA V and Online?"
Textures are basically different kinds of reflections that determine how a colour is presented on a vehicle.
The game can't just "show" you a colour - it demands to also know the texture. (It's impossible to get a colour with no texture, by the way.)
All official colours in the game has a set texture on them. In fact, if you enter Los Santos Customs and browse the "Classic" section, you can see some of the colours have a different reflection!

To explain it in a bit of detail, allow myself to show off my mad skillz in MS Paint below.

23jwGId.png


Texture = The texture is always on top of the colour, and determines how the colour is shown on the vehicle.

Colour = The colour is always on top of the car model, so it can actually display the colour. This colour is the actual HEX*.

Car model = The car model for whatever car that has the paint on.
* = Read more about HEXes below.

For example, when you choose the colour called "Black" in Los Santos Customs, the game has to load the colour and texture. In this example, it will load the texture (which is Classic), and the colour (which is HEX #080808), for it to then show it on the car, displaying it on your TV/computer screen.
All "official" colours that exist in the game has a colour and texture set for them.
Pearlescents are naturally always showing on top of the texture.



"HEX values... The hell is that?"
HEX is short for "hexadecimal", and is a way to turn text into a colour. Pretty cool! It's used in almost every program you know; even GTA V!
To explain exactly what HEXes are, I'd recommend you'll Google it - it's a huuuge topic, and my thread can get boring very quickly if I included so many details. Regardless, the reason it's here is to tell you what colour is linked to which name in the official colours list for GTA V.
Open up the spoiler below to see what colour is linked to which HEX.
(If spreadsheet is broken below, use this LINK instead. Spreadsheet made and owned by JoonasPRKL from GTAF)



If you're instead looking for a specific car with a specific colour/texture, you can also have a look on JoonasPRKLs website!
https://joonasprkl.github.io/spawncolors



"Mmhm, but what about Crew Colours, aren't they also a custom HEX colour?"
Yes they are! Through Social Clubs' Crews, you can apply/select a specific HEX colour for your Crew, if you're the Leader or Commissioner of that Crew. This will allow you to get custom colours in the game, which normally isn't a part of the "official" colours.
When you apply any Crew colour to your car, it will automatically have the "Utility" texture.



"Oh yeah, speaking of textures, what are the difference(s) between them all?"

Mmm, glad you asked! Open up the Spoiler below to see all the 8 different textures that exist in the game. A Nero with the custom HEX code #47783C has been provided to showcase the textures.

CLASSIC
msdbeqZ.jpg

The basic reflection you get with most colours.



UTILITY
l8H7OVM.jpg

The reflection is more "faded" in the outlines of the shiny spots - When you apply any Crew Colour, it will come as Utility as stock.



EPSILON
jWtxiqD.jpg

Epsilon is an even more faded version of the utility texture. It looks to have a polished wax finish, and the colour underneath appears very sharp, especially if it's a light colour.



WORN
36hW1Cf.jpg

A texture which is mostly found on rusty cars and some modern street vehicles. It has a very faded reflection, and looks an awfully lot like the matte texture when viewed in the right lighting.



MATTE
3McIcW7.jpg

Very similar to the worn texture, but has little to no reflection at all. Think of it as a chalkboard.



METAL / GOLD_BRUSH
3PyG3iS.jpg

The outlines of the shiny spots are "faded" when comparing it to MP100 / Pure Gold on this texture as seen below. This is often called a "3D" colour/texture, and I have no idea why. Don't ask. Community agreement, I suppose.



MP100_GOLD_SPEC / GOLD_PURE
POWGuR9.jpg

Same deal as the metal texture, but is much shinier overall, and is very sharp. This is also called a "3D" colour/texture, and yet again, I don't know why it is.



CHROME
HLeyC4h.jpg

Chrome is... Well, chrome. Not much to say here, you've seen this texture on most kids' supercars. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Some key things to remember here:
  • MP100 and Pure Gold share the exact same texture.
  • Metals and Brushed Gold share the exact same texture.



"So what are 'artificial colours', then?"
So-called "artificial colours" is a name for custom colours that visually look the same, but are technically not.
For example, the official colour "Silver (Utility)". If you changed your Crew colour to the same HEX as the utility silver (#575961), and applied it to a vehicle, there will be no visual difference in either the official or your Crew coloured silver, but they're technically different, as any Crew colour is not an official colour.

The difference isn't much, but it's a very important difference; You cannot have two different Crew colours on your car at the same time. That means that you cannot have a car with the silver Crew colour as the Primary colour and have a different custom Crew colour on the Secondary colour. You will need to find a car that has the official utility silver colour on it, only then are you able to have both colours on at the same time.



With the use of a Save Editor, you can actually customize your very own texture with the exact HEX value you want! This is known in the community as "artificial textures".
Here is an example; I want to make a worn textured custom green colour for both my Primary and Secondary colour. To make that, I would have to select any worn colour from the Primary and Secondary Colour list (doesn't have to be a specific colour, "Black (Worn)" works just as well), and tick on "Custom Colour", aswell as tell the Save Editor what HEX value you want. The final product is referenced to being "artificial worn".
You can of course also do it with any of the other textures that is shown in the "Textures on Vehicles" spoiler.

3hZspRH.png


(Note: "Custom Colour" in a Save Editor is programmed as a Crew Colour.)

If you own a car in GTA Online that has an artificial texture on, you can actually change the primary colour without changing the texture with a custom Crew colour*! However, you need to sacrifice your Secondary colour and texture to do so, but the Primary will keep its texture.
Click the Spoiler below to see how it's done.
Drive into LSC with the car that has an artificial colour/texture on it.
In my instance, it's a Cognoscenti with artificial worn #000000.

6qf0sFE.png




Go to the Secondary Colour, and select Crew colour. Make sure you've set the Crew colour to your desired colour before doing this. As you can see, the Primary colour keeps the worn texture, but the colour underneath is changed to my custom Crew colour. If you like that change, you can then purchase the Crew colour. If you don't like how it looks, you can just back out of the menu, the colour and texture isn't lost.

XJe1yNg.png




You're allowed to freely change your Secondary colour to whatever official colour there is inside of LSC. However, this will also change your Secondary colours' texture to Classic, as you can see below.

26siRZh.png




This trick can be extremely useful for vehicles that has a Secondary colour option where the Secondary doesn't show up on major parts of the car.
* = Please note that performing this trick will make your vehicle "Scratched", and will permanently lose the custom texture and colour it has on its secondary. If you're in the trading community, I would NOT recommend doing this.






Sorry if the thread is still a mess, I'm still working on it.
Also, please let me know if there's any sort of information that needs to be added, or if there's something that is horribly explained. I'm all in for sharing information afterall! :biggrin:


Are all of the textures available in Save Wizard?

In Save Editor, I assume you mean? Because yes they are!
Yup, that's what I meant. Another question, do you drag n drop the modded save, or should it load thru SE or SW? I been trying to figure it out without watching videos but can't seem to be able to open the modded save in either app. That's the only thing I haven't tried, just figured there's gotta be a way to load the file internally but can't find the option to.

I assume I have to load the modded save file to add cars made in SE?

I'm confused on what you mean exactly. Drag and drop?
I believe the modded file is decrypted, so you can open it with Save Editor straight away.
I believe that you're giving yourself a small disadvantage in not following a tutorial, as this is not a simple phonefix topic.

You're right. I watched a video. Good now
