"Redacted Replicas of Modern Updates - Replica liveries with a twist. Choose your favourite cigarette or alcohol main sponsored livery of any era, and then create a livery (Exact replica or modern update).

  • Cannot name the sponsor anywhere on the car

BONUS PICTURE SETTINGS:

GENERAL COMPETITION RULES

ENTRY SUBMISSION

  • The only way you can take part is to be a member of the GTPlanet forums. If you haven't created your account yet, click here.
  • Mark your FINAL ENTRY clearly, with red text.
  • Unsure how to? Copy and paste the following: [COLOR=red][B]FINAL ENTRY[/B][/COLOR]
  • One entry per user. It must be your own work, and never previously used in a competition.
  • You may change your entry once. Do it clearly; edit out your previous entry, and either post the new one in a new reply, or in place of the original.
  • Do not post "Honourable Mentions" or outtakes - just your Final Entry, that's all.
  • Absolutely no entries which utilise edited/hacked file saves.
  • Winner gets to choose the following month’s theme.
  • The organisers may ask for the original image/livery and it must be submitted if so.
  • It's recommended to share the original livery online (in-game) to prove it’s your work.


ENTRY PRESENTATION
  • All images shall have preview images which may not exceed 640 pixels in either direction (main and bonus pictures).
  • You have to post two main pictures of your entry using the mandatory location and settings as shown in the quote below.
  • You are allowed to post two bonus pictures in a spoiler ([SPOILER]...[/SPOILER]) with free location and settings (unless the unique restrictions of the week’s theme specify something else).
  • You have to make one post with ONLY the set allowed number of pictures and the FINAL ENTRY (see above) mark. If you want to add precisions/background story/links, you are allowed to double-post under your entry, but please put all additional images in a spoiler. The best way to do it will be to "reply" to your own post.
  • It is recommended you host your image either here on GTPlanet (via the Media section), or on Flickr
  • Not sure how to submit your image? Here's a guide for both methods mentioned above.
  • Do not attach your phots directly to your entry post.
  • A preview image must be representative of the full-size image. Do not add effects to it.
  • Please use a clickable-preview to full-size, not a separate text link for it; it makes poll creation much easier!
  • No post-game editing of any entry image is allowed.
  • Mark your entry with which platform you're on and which mode you're using, whether it’s taken on PS4 Base, PS4 Pro, PS5 Raytracing or PS5 Framerate.


MANDATORY PICTURES
  • You have to post a front and a rear quarter view of your car:
    • Mandatory Scape: S&Company East, Saitama, Japan (scape number 5)
    • Focal Length: ~80mm ±5mm
    • Aperture: f5.6 or f8.0
    • Shutter Speed: 1/1 Second
    • Exposure Correction: +0.5 to +1.0
  • Do not use any Filters or Effects at all and only the camera setting above within the allowed limits; the pictures are supposed to be as equal as possible for all entries and not give anyone who is a bit more savvy with the Scapes Camera an advantage! Try to stay as close as possible to how the video shows the shot to be taken!

NOTE: if you have previously entered, just go to Scapes > My Library > click your previous entry > Open Scapes > change car to the new entry, refocus and snap a new photo. No need to reposition the camera/car unless its proportions are wildly different.


Please, ensure you read and understand all requirements for this competition. Failure to follow the rules may result in disqualification. If you have questions, start a convo with me, Matski or any other participant you feel comfortable reaching out to.

PLEASE NOTE: Repeat offenders will be disqualified. If your entry doesn’t match the rules you will be made aware of it at least once, so please keep an eye out for any notifications reaching your profile.

Any reason Gr.1 cars are excluded? Aside from Group C cars... Seems a shame to miss the opportunity of creating a modernised classic livery on a Gr.1 car (maybe excluding the weird VGT stuff).

It won't affect my entry, as I was going to go for a Gr.2 car anyway, but it might be cool to see a modernised Marlboro or Rothmans livery on a Toyota GR010 for example.

Not sure. Since I don't normally post the themes I just copied the response from the original theme submission.

Maybe @Racerx_34 could shed more light on the sitch. Is the intention to have only classic/neo-modern cars, not modern race cars?? Just a little confused as to why Gr.2 GT500's (all the way up to 2016) are included but GT3 cars from Gr.3 are excluded and LMP cars as well.

That was an oversight on my part. Modern Gr1 should be included but like you said I didn’t want any of the VGT Gr1 cars.

I hate that I have a great option for this already made up, I would just have to remove some logos. I always come up with something new for these, and now with only one contest a month I feel like I should start fresh. But dang, it really would work great.

Nothing special, classic NASCAR inspired take on a Jack Daniel's livery.

Can't fit roll-cage but I think it's got pretty much everything else fitted.
 
FINAL ENTRY
JAGUAR-MASTER XJ220 LM
- PS4 base -





If it wasn't me … someone had to do this. I really love the idea of playing with words and logos. I had fun galore working on this livery, tried to keep it simple and not too overloaded. And yes, I bought this vehicle just for reason to wrap it like a Jaguar-Master LM car!
 
FINAL ENTRY
PS5 Raytracing

"Abs and Glute" McLaren F1 GTR - BMW '95

I have been thinking of the old Absolute ads, many of the artist series would make great liveries. Nice work capturing the brand!
 
Though the Smokin' Joe's Racing had Nascar and Dragster teams, I took my inspiration for this one from Miguel Duhamel's Honda RC45 that won the 1995 AMA Superbike title. Besides just the purplish blue and yellow paint, I really wanted to bring the bike aspect into the design, with the metallic silver stripe referencing the frame and swing arm. I'm still working on a Smokin' Joe's version, and will get it uploaded once I've finished. As a former smoker (now reformed nearly a decade), I appreciate the message of the playful rename of this "redacted" version.
