We’ve rolled out a few minor updates, enhancements, and bug fixes to tradingpaints.com.
When you upload a new paint and you already have a decal layer assigned, you’ll now be asked if you want to keep your existing decal layer. Previously, your decal layer was always removed when uploading a new paint.
Adjusted the appearance of the screen when switching between vehicle tabs to avoid a “No Paint” indicator even when there is an active paint assigned.
Added links to modify number style, wheel color, and download the template on the iRacing Member Site from the Choose Paint menu for each vehicle.
You can now dismiss on-screen notifications by clicking them.
On confirmation prompts (“Are you sure you want to do something?”), you can now also press the Enter (or Return) key to confirm.
Fixed a bug where the word “null” would appear after using a Showroom paint via the My Paints screen.
Fixed a bug where used paint schemes marked as unlisted could appear in Showroom suggestions.
Fixed a bug where “Created with Paint Builder” text would remain under a paint after a Paint Builder paint was removed.
Fixed a bug where new Paint Builder paints would display a broken image preview.
Adjusted the notification shown after sending a message to another user.
Fixed a bug where https URLs did not display correctly on user profiles.
Fixed a bug where some users with certain special characters in their email addresses could not log in.
Fixed a bug where painters might have received notifications from a user with no ID (dummy user).
Fixed a bug where you might have received multiple Trading Paints Pro upgrade emails at once.
On paint scheme pages, you’ll now see an area that displays additional Showroom paints by that member.
We’ve added a new section to the Showroom called Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame lists the public Showroom paint that’s in the #1 most popular position each day. Enjoy seeing which paints are popular over time.
We now show an indicator on paints that have been the first, second, or third most popular Showroom paints on any day.
You can now view or sort by all Oval and all Road cars in the Vehicle drop-down list.
Shortened the display of long web addresses on paint scheme pages.
Added a reminder to users who haven’t used Trading Paints Downloader to install the program after selecting the option to race a Showroom paint.
Added the ability to define the wheel style (color vs. matte) when uploading a Showroom paint.
Added a “Reply” button to submit comments and replies on a paint scheme page.
Updated accuracy of the number of racers using paints.
Fixed a bug where the painter-defined wheel color was not shown on Showroom paint scheme page.
You will now receive a notification on Trading Paints when someone shares a Paint Builder project with you.
Fixed a bug where an old version of a Paint Builder project would not update when modified.
Fixed a bug where pressing Sign Out from Paint Builder would not sign you out.
A sincere thank you to everyone who contributed to making Trading Paints a fantastic community in 2017. There are now over 70,000 of you, and it’s really cool for us to see 60,000 Showroom paints, 47,000 Paint Builder paints, and nearly a million uploads to My Paints since our re-launch two years ago. We’ve loved watching the community thrive this year as iRacing released a remarkable amount of new content — we’re blown away by your creativity, and can’t wait to see what 2018 brings.
