Naming of Paints
« on: September 05, 2015, 10:55:17 AM »
Hi All,

With the start of the new Paint database I would like to reiterate the idea that Klax came up with when it comes to naming of skins. But with a slight change.

Currently people are making skins and calling them whatever (mypaint.pnt for example in the file browser and my paint in game) , now if you know exactly where the skin is for then nothing to worry about. But it bloody annoying just having a skin named mypaint.pnt and then not knowing where its got to be put in order to work in game.

In Klax's post he and others came up with the idea of having a simple and uniform way of naming skins. The .pnt would be the bikes name, the skins name and possibly a number. This is so it can easily be place in the right folder and so that we don't have conflicting names overwriting each other.
(You don't need to have a number if you don't want. Really there for replicas and for when making championship skins where numbers can conflict)

And in game something simple (Shorter the better) so everyone can easily identify a skin. It can be the same as the file name, just take out the bike information and the underscores. Also, you need to check the name in game before submitting it to make sure it's correct and it doesn't overrun the text box.

IMPORTANT NOTE
YOUR FILE NAME (THE .PNT FILE) CANNOT BE MORE THAN 34 CHARACTERS LONG INCLUDING .PNT

This is because of an in game bug which will cause the riders leathers and helmet to reset to default, and sometimes makes the helmet disappear.

So Ducati_Panigale_1199_casey_stoner_27.pnt would be to long. If you find you name is to long, remove some details, take the number out first, then shorten the name or remove unnecessary bike details (use numbers instead of names if possible for the bikes)

For this Ducati_1199_casey_stoner_27.pnt would be fine, as it is 31 characters in total.


EXAMPLE

For the file name (.pnt file)

BIKE_NAME PERSONAL_NAME_NUMBER.pnt

Could be

Ducati_GP10_Stoner_27.pnt

And for the in game name (what you select in game)

Ducati_GP10_Stoner_27.pnt

Could be

Casey Stoner 27


This also applies to leathers and helmets

For leathers

File Name-           Suit_personal name_number.pnt
In Game Name-   Personal Name number

Example-             Suit_Casey_Stoner_27.pnt
                            Casey Stoner 27

For Helmets

File Name-           HelmetModel_personal_name_number.pnt
In Game Name-   Personal Name Number

Example-             HJC_RPHA10_Casey_Stoner_27.pnt
                           Casey Stoner 27


Any questions. Just ask :)
