The DownThunder Update Thread

We are working constantly on DownThunder to improve the community. And to keep you happy we are going to give you a brief overview about what are we going to do next. Feel free to give us your feedback but in order to keep this thread clean and organized we would like you to use the Feedback Forum. :)

New Gears Feature

We have implemented a virtual currency called "Gears". You can collect gears by being an active member of the DownThunder community. Gears are given for:

- creating topic
- replying to topics
- adding your car
- updating your car
- uploading a picture
- uploading a youtube video
- creating a workshop tutorial
- making friends with someone

You also earn gears if someone likes your activities. You receive gears if someone likes ...

... your car
... your posts and topics
... your pictures
... your added video

Please bear with us. We are working on fine tuning these things and not all modules are fully finished yet. At a later step you will be able to spend those gears one something really useful. :)

There's quite a big number of updates which I will describe more detailed in http://www.downthunder.com.au/versions.

Just a quick one. We have now a complete parts database (http://www.downthunder.com.au/parts) where our members can rate and review all kinds of car parts which they have added to their 4x4s. So each time you add a new modification to your car this mod will be added as a new item in the car database.

Second. You have probably seen that your avatar is pulsating with a green ring. That shows other members that you are online and approachable. A chat and private messaging function is due but I have a couple of other long awaited features on my plate which I want to finish first. :)
