Trick to get Special Paint Items
« on: Nov 19, 2011, 04:58 pm »

I discovered a neat trick (this may not be a new trick, but I have yet to read about it.)

If you are looking for a specific special paint, ie: a Matte or a Chrome try this trick;
Upon receiving a gift of paint for having another 30 cars in your garage, simply quit the game at the screen that gifts you the paint item if it is not one that you are looking for. The game automatically saves before the paint is awarded, and not again until after it is accepted.
Start the game back up and... Voila! You're immediately presented with a random special paint. Repeat until you get the color you desire.

You always get a paint when your car count hits a multiple of 30.

Thanks fot the tip, I finally got Gold Chrome!
Are there any chances to get Colour Shift paint items like that? I got 1050 cars in my garage and never got a CS colour as bonus.

Thanks teal, already got them from TVR's dealership. I couldn't find:
Maziora Adromeda II
Maziora Matterhorn
Maziora Mazeran
Maziora Pireades II

But I'll keep looking at TVRs when they show up at the used dealership.

By the way, the trick in this topic also applies to horns hehehe.
