Sponsor Restrictions + Painting Information

Post by Cynon on Sat Aug 06, 2011 10:00 am

2013 Contingency Decals

Livery Rules

- Unless otherwise specified, no sponsor decals on the roof unless they are on the sides in place of the driver signature.

- The number of the car must take up most of the space on the roof and be legible from some distance.

- The car number can be any size on the doors, but I have to be able to see it clearly.

- The numbers have to be on the roof and on the doors. The roof number can be aligned in any direction you want (NASCAR-style, short track style, whatever).

- The car number must have all digits in the same size, or close to the same size. If you have number 093, you can not make the 0 microscopic and make the 93 normal size (in any case I would probably reassign your number choice since I don't like 3 digit numbers beginning with zero).

- If the paintjob is bad, I can and probably will ask you to re-do it. You can put black numbers on a white car with nothing else on it and you'll be fine. Just don't have stupid crap like yellow numbers on a lime green car. You don't need any kind of design talent, and the chances of a car getting rejected are small.

- I am entitled to ask you to take a sponsor decal off your car for whatever reason, but for as long as I've been running this, I've only had to do that once.

- A chassis can not be used unless I have the .PSD for it.

- Cars are to be submitted either as .car files (physics type doesn't matter) or .TGA (targa) files. Please do not submit a .JPG car. :[ I would prefer a .car file, but if you don't have NR then a .TGA will do.

- The only contigency decals required are the TM Master Cup series logo, the pole award logo, the tire logo, and the Spirit logo. They can be anywhere on the sides of the car, but I would prefer them to be visible. I would much prefer you not change the colors of any of them.

- New chassis should only be on the Oldsmobile/Buick body (preferably) or the Thunderbird body. I would advise you stay off the Camaro body and the Firebird is reserved for the Altair and only the Altair.

Sponsors that can't be used

- Blackwater Security
Reason: War Profiteering. I don't believe that a company that is actively profiting from the United States invading other countries deserves to be advertised.

- Halliburton and it's subsidiaries (KBR included).
Reason: See above. This rule is why the Halliburton and KBR decals vanished off the National Racing/Team Saar USA cars after 2007.

- Any Branch of the Military of any Country
Reason: I've long stated that I really dislike advertising this. You can be a proud veteran and show that, there's plenty of options for veterans services that can go on cars instead.

- Religious Based Sponsors
Reason: There is nothing that irritates me more then this. I think it's reasonable to expect the same from everyone else. This does not prohibit you from putting those little crosses next to the driver signature.

- Pornographic Studios/Magazines
Reason: Do I really need to say why?

- Racist or Hate Groups
Reason: Again, do I really need to say why this is a no-no? To an extent, this goes along with political sponsors.

- Nascar
Reason: 'cause in our little alternate universe, it doesn't exist.

- Real World Manufacturers
Reason: See Nascar.

- Cigarettes
Reason: I would be okay with this, but it's in compliance with a U.S. law that states that cigarettes cannot sponsor a sports team. It's there to keep it realistic.

- Apple
Reason: The epitome of evil shall not be permitted in the series.

- My Little Pony
Ew.

Sponsors I will discourage users from using

- Musicians/Bands
Reason: Be more imaginative please. I'll probably let you use one if I like it, but don't count on it. If it's an independent artist I'll almost certainly let you use it.

- EA
Reason: Do you really want to glorify their garbage?

- NNRacing.com
Reason: I just hate the place.

- Most Political-Based Sponsors (talk to me if you really want one, most likely you won't get it)
Reason: The series is not a place to showcase political beliefs. If you think breast cancer ribbons are "political", then, well... you don't need to ask me to use those on cars. Most likely, if you want one of these, you'll probably only get it if I agree with it, and I'm being honest. Laughing


ALSO...

In this alternate universe, I have started doing name-changes on real companies to fit them in with the TMMC universe. The main reason for doing this is because I feel you can have a lot more fun with a fictional sponsor as far as car design goes.

Coca-Cola -> Delano
DuPont -> MHL

Just guessing from Louis Kingston's car, are sports teams are allowed sponsors?

I know that MLP sponsors are banned but what about sponsors that directly parody or make fun of the show? Like Sticky Hooves Glue? Razz
