App Modding TrackDay

What is it?
It is an application for downloading and updating mods for TDR.

 

Why was it created?
It was created in order to simplify the installation of mods for less experienced users and to have a place to view / download / update all the content



Until when will it be finished?

 The project right now is functional.

The question would be if an application is ever terminated .. since there are always things to improve or polish or even add.

In the next version we will be able to place them skin to our liking

How does it work?

It's very simple.

image

  • Unzip and run the "setup" file to begin the installation

image

  • Then press next until the installation is finished

image image image image image

  • Once the installation is finished you will find a shortcut icon to the application

image 

  • Run the app
  • The first time you start the application you will see a window like this

image

  • press yes

image

  • The first option is filled in automatically, since we obtain the installation path of the game from the windows registry.
  • The second option is the steam id that we will need to change the skins
  • To get the id just press "get id?" and a browser window will take you to your steam account

image

  • copy the steam id that will appear to you and paste it in the application
  • press save and close the window
  • the application will restart to make the changes
  • at the time of this tutorial we have these options (download, tools, help)

image

  • If you press download, you will see 3 options (track, bike and skin)
  • Let's select Track

image

  • You will see a window like this
  • You just have to mark the circuits you want to download and press the bottom button that says "download" and the program will take care of everything. once finished it will tell you and you can close

image image image

  • if you need more information about a circuit, click on the name and you will get more information

image

  • The next time you open this window, you will see the circuits that you already have downloaded in green, and these will be automatically updated every time you open the application (in case there is an update)

image

 

  • The same example is valid for unloading motorcycles

 

 

Extra information for users who want to publish their mods through this application

Track

 

  • It is important to keep these steps in mind
  • Folder order should be like this example once compressed
  • The circuit folder (sherry in this example) and inside the files that make up the circuit

image image

  • you should upload the file to [Please login to see the link]
  • once uploaded you will be able to obtain the link to add it to the discord bot @ModdingBot. You can get more information by writing !help to the bot

Bike

 

  • The guidelines are like the above. but with the motorcycle

Skin

 

  • In the case of skin you must compress the files in this way

image image

  • It should contain a folder with the unique name (you can see it in the example) and inside the files with the same pattern.

    IDSTEAM-skin-body.jpg -> For the body

    IDSTEAM-skin-boots.jpg -> for boots

    IDSTEAM-skin-gloves.jpg -> for gloves

    IDSTEAM-skin-helmet.jpg -> for the helmet

    IDSTEAM-skin-ycf160-livery.jpg -> the bike (this would see depending on the bike)

 

  • It is important that the pattern of the names is like this, since then we can select the different skins from the application at will, otherwise it will not work

 

For the moment this is it. I hope that everything has been as clear as possible and that everyone can understand it.

If you have any questions you just have to ask.

Thanks to the colleagues who make the mods and share them.

Thanks to evandeciren that when you see your skins you can get an idea of ​​how to order the skins

Thanks to the developer team and their contributors for their help

Patches notes:

[Please login to see the link]

  • 7zip library is added, since it gave an error when the user did not have it installed.
  • Added verification of files not available in mega by deletion.
  • Code is modified to optimize the program.
  • Json code is changed, just like it was done in the modding Bot.

IMPORTANT :

Delete the previous application and its folder with all the files, the internal structure is different from the previous one and it will not work installing it on top

Hello Sito206,

Thx for creating this app/tool very well done !.

I think it is the right way to organize aal the mods etc.

1 thing you probably dont know yet, after my windows 10 updated to version 21H1 your app is not working anymore.

It was working very well before the update.

I have it not installed right now so i cannot post any screenshots but i reckon its the windows update.

 

Thx in advance.

Hello.

Thanks first.

I am looking at the note from microsoft about the update that you indicate and I still do not understand the reason why you say that in that update the application will not work. Could you give me more information?

Sorry for late respons.

Well as i said i dont have it installed right now, i could reinstall it and post some screenies on this forum, but i reckon it does not help much.

Once you get the update installed (it is just a small one) i assume you are on windows 10 ?.

If it is still working for you then maybe the problem is on my end... if that is the case i will try to figure out what it is causing it.

 

Edit.

Maybe i will reinstall it later on, because after the 21H1 update i did reinstall another preview update which contains the *wheater and news gadget on the taskbar* 

This update however was pretty big.

Dunno if i am gonna do it tonight because it is very hot and Humidity is sky high in holland atm.

So not a pleasant time to spend time behind the computer.

[Please login to see the link] It works well with the windows update, there is no problem for me and two colleagues who do me testing

It also works for me now, dunno where the problem was anyway with latest windows preview update and app update it works flawless now 👍 

 

Once again thx for creating this because imo this is the right way to organize all the mods which will come out 👍 

BTW i have not played TDR much so i am no expert atm if i have some spare time i play MotoGP 21.

but when this game is growing during the year for example AI in the game .... 🍻  i will start playing it.
