Pin option for skins

Postby Timo Van Dyk » Sun Jan 26, 2020 6:11 pm

Hi guys

I have loads of skins and with typing the skin name it sometimes takes a few minutes.

I would like a pin/fav option so my skins that i want show up first in the list.

This can be simpely done by a check box next to the skin name or something

Cheers,

Timo

I like this idea. I think most would agree that the flow of the menu system could be improved. Bike skins are the most painless because they are categorized by year and model. I have over 10 years' worth of tracks and sifting through them all alphabetically is unreasonable, especially without a universal naming convention.

I would love the ability to create my own subfolders or categorize in some way that doesn't break functionality for multiplayer — something a little more robust than a favorite tag. The menus themselves are currently super straightforward and intuitive until you've forgotten the name or spelling of some specific track or rider skin.

You could just hover over the menu before you actually open it and type in what the track or skin is called

Yes, but when you have around 150 jerseys with your name on it, cycling through "storken" 142 times to find the one you want is quite tedious.

True, but another way to get around that is to put a few !!! in front of the folder your skins are in, they'll appear right on top

If you want to find something like "sinisalo_wardy_blue", type "sinisalo" <backspace> "wardy" <backspace> "blue" and it should put you right on it.
