Ah, thank you for the Trackmania skins kudos - much appreciated. Saw one of mine on the Quick Look too and was made up. Can't express how important the community here (and the continued output from the team) have helped me through these last few months. Love to you all!

Exquisite Corps today, going for a lighter coloured theme. Not too sure whether this is too understated, maybe Ranking of Fighters next to go a bit more flashy.

@nawaba thanks, it's nice to set a small daily task that isn't to do with the pretty amazingly terrible world out there. Gotta love them games.

@savutano: Cheers duder! This is all building up to the skill required to try and approximate Jeff stream screen madness.

Old Games and Murder Island editions today. Added to the Jeff saluting GB club and my Ed Traxler's Skins thingy.

@bollard: I've already seen a few people rocking experimentally looking frames of other car types so I don't think it'll be long before Sonic and Thomas the Tank Engine are ripping down the track.

For today's project I used the Game Tapes Series logo and colours for a skin. A skin a day keeps the madness away... ...or at bay, at the very least.

@devoidcheeks: Yeah, it's unfortunate that the custom skins are only for the club level. The skins was a bigger draw to the Club level for me than the Clubs themselves in the end. I wasn't going to get club, but in a small, kind of sad way, I realised just how much I use custom paint things in racing games. Really hoping there is an update so that non club users can pick selected ones for use maybe after a time-based, or unlocked with medals or something.

@theoracleofgame: It's very much like Forza but without as much intuitive menu work (funny that a Trackmania menu is challenging). The pain is uploading all the various images to use as stickers in the right folder in the Trackmania file. But once the faff of that is done it's quite quick to piece it together.

Hey all, as I went for the club edition I thought I'd make use of the custom skins tools (challenging) to make some GB themed skins. I've popped them on the Giant Bomb Club but thought it might be good to start a forum post for others that might want to share their stuff.

I'm no designer but I'm having fun, so I was also looking for some more GB themes to do (think people, features, moments) if anyone has suggestions?

On the Ubi Store there's a 1 or 3 year club option, with significant discount for the 3 years, but only year for the standard price. As someone who would have probably leaned towards the Standard model because of how I tend to play the previous games, I'm a little disappointed I can't pay for three years of standard so I can essentially forget about purchases for the time being but it's not the worst package it could have been.
