I have raced plenty of races where the ground flickers between two different colors. Do you know how they do that?

I'm not 100% but perhaps they lay one prop down in one colour then another in exactly same position in another colour...

I think your right on that ... Especially since certain props can flicker when they are borderline sunk into the ground and borderline above ground

Hope this helps, if not my GT is KillaVapor if you need live visual help.

PART ONE: Take a base prop(Sandbag or container depends on what your doing) & place it center front of whatever colored prop you desired so now it's sitting on top of your prop(Tube, Blocks,Tracks). Save your design STARTING WITH BASE PROP FIRST as a Template in the template category of the props section. Once saved change your colored prop with prop stacking OFF using the bumpers on Xbox or L1&R1 on PSN(I don't play on PSN so only assuming). Save it as template #2 using sane method as #1.

PART TWO: They say this part works better over water so do it there. There's 2 ways of flashing a prop, 1 is a flicker RNG kinda thing & 2 is more smooth with glitter effect rather than flash. Staring straight down at your template over the water place your #1 template & quickly delete your base prop with X on Xbox or ◻ on Psn & make sure at this point prop stacking is on. Once you delete your base prop quickly hit right on your D-pad or left whichever your template list goes to your #2 template of the same design but altered color. Place it and hit the delete button again to delete base prop again. If done correctly you are now flashing within your non deleted leftovers you have of templates #1 & #2. Go to templates and save BOTH placed props as a template(this parts annoying to get it's completely random so you may be stuck trying for a bit. A way to counter this issue tho is if you see your props flashing after you do steps 1 & 2. while still on very last part of step 2 after deleting your base prop slightly hit your bumper or L1R1 to SLIGHTLY turn your second colored prop & if it still flashes after you should be able to easily target both props to be saved as a new template. If your adding multiple colors make a new base prop over it before reaching it as template #3.) The glitter method involves every step I just mentioned with an additional step. So at this point you should have 2 colors flashing in & out from each other... pick up your second colored prop with A on Xbox or X on Psn & just simply hit B on Xbox or O on Psn to cancel what you just picked up putting prop back in that flashing state but if done correctly should be a different style of flashing. One with more comfort & less chaoticness for your poor eyes while stunting. Save as final template and waalaah.

I hope I helped more than I confused in your situation. I don't normally use 2ND flashing method alot so I could of missed a tiny step but I'm sure if at all itd just be instead of picking up prop n canceling just pick it up & back out to previous category list using the B button on Xbox or O on Psn(I.e. Trigger, Weapons, Props, etc.) & simply going back into prop category....

It's tedious & very frustrating but also very beautiful. Be mindful of your fans or guest tho & be sure to let them know there's flashing items in your description area in case a person has epilepsy. Last thing we want is for somebody to get hurt due to a creators Ignorance. Which unfortunately alot of people tend not to do. Simple notes can save a life! Also you should try out Wingsuiting in GTAO!!! Custom Created Captures built to use the parachute physics as a way to stunt with your body...don't believe me you can ask sleepwalker here, he's a fast learning newcomer with great potential & equally great creations. I have a YouTube channel if you'd like to see more at TrIpPy KillaVaporGC or just look up gta v Wingsuit xb1 n you should find me or the crew RDRL. If you need any further info on anything gta v related do not be shy to ask me...I'll be glad to help you :)

Simply place the block, then override the position of the next by bringing it down until you start to see if flicker.

How about the second kind of flash? That part works well for some but not all as goes for mine. With the O/R controls rockstar has time to counter act your placement quicker then if you used sporadicness of the template method. Either way works for simple flashing tho ✌✌👍
