Hey everyone! Hope you are all staying safe, and indoors. Hopefully playing more NFS!

Just wanted to advertise some new features with the site. Hopefully everything will be working smoothly, but if not, feel free to comment here and I'll do my best to fix any bugs as soon as possible

Updated Addon pages
I have redesigned the addon detail pages slightly, to give more real estate to the screens. They are a little bigger now and the rating/favorite features are more prominent. Hopefully that will entice people to rate and favorite more

Comment replies
You can now reply directly to a comment (only down one level, for now) and will be notified via the notifications icon at the top of the screen if somebody replies to your comment.

New Vinyls category
The downloads section now has a category for vinyls. You can now select vinyls when uploading and I have re-categorized existing vinyl/livery downloads into that new category. You may remember NFSAddons/NFSGarage used to have a vinyl section years ago, and those files are still on the server but not visible. The majority don't have preview screenshots, but I will be going through them and re-adding them to the site wherever possible.

Hope everyone likes the new updates, and as always, if you think of a feature you'd like to see, or find a bug somewhere, post on the forums or our Discord server.

I really like this update. The new design for the downloads reminds me of a familiar site...idk which one.

Comment replies definitely were needed.
And vinyl section also is useful.

Another new update today.

NFS:UG, NFS:MW and NFS:C cars will now display which care they replace in the game. If they are addon cars, they will specify that as well.

When uploading, there is a new field to fill out selecting which car it will replace. On the downloads page, you will see this which lets you know which car it replaces


Clicking "Find more cars that replace XXXX" will take you to the downloads page listing all the other addons that replace that car.

Hopefully this makes things a little easier when searching for addons!

Note: I will be extending this to other gameversions soon.

Minor update today, but the database has been converted to a new DB platform, and should be a little speedier. If you notice any bugs, let me know!

My suggestion is maybe changing the SOTD section.

I see that the last day is Saturday,but the official last day in the calendar is Sunday. So maybe changing the SOTD to start the SOTD's with Monday,instead of Sunday. It kinda throws me off.

The weeks start in Sunday here in North America. I'll see if I can get it to start based on your location
