Mapping Race numbers and Sponsor Stickers on the doors
Create a new material. Open the material editor with a doubleclick on the new material. Rename the Material in "66" and activate the color channel. Turn the brightness to 0%. Load with a klick on the "..."-Button (next to "x Texture") any sticker or racenumber you like. Note: Our racenumber is created with 3 different textures from the 3D Total CD. We combined them in Photoshop to one sticker.
Activate the reflection channel and turn the brightness to 4%. Activate the Specular channel and set the parameters as shown in the following screenshot: Activate the Specular color channel and turn the brightness to 88%.
Assign the 66 material to the door in the object manager.
Click on the texture tag and change in the tag settings the projection to Cubic. Disable "Tile".
Select in the tool bar "texture axis tool" and move the race number in the middle of the door. The cubic mapping method mirrors the race number automatically on the opposite door. Only one thing is left: You should scale the texture width at the Z-axis to 0,1m. Otherwise your sticker breaks over the edges at the door.
The race numbers are finished now:
