Yes they`re finally here, we have the newly built just for you official signpacks. Within these collections you will find just about every sign for almost all eventualities you may come across within a TM race to fulfill your mapping needs. You want a sign in yellow to say Stay Left?, we got it, you want one which says Loop Left?, we got that too, you want a blue one for at night which says Quarter Pipe Transfer Pipe Leap to the right? Thats even in there! and no we haven`t forgotten about up, down, left and right either.

Within these collections are signs for almost everything (though not all) you need, there are 4 main colours as well as a collection of special TMX based extra signs called the Special sets which all of which come in two "moods" which are Day and Night, The Night ones have a special Uplighter effect added but are otherwise the same signs. We have even repacked the old community pack too so nothing has been lost. All packs include the needed .loc files and all signs are now hosted by us on our servers so they should always work fine.

We hope you all enjoy them and appreciate the hard work it took to bring these to you.

1) Download whichever sets you want from the links found below.

2) Copy (or cut/paste) the downloaded zips to your TrackMania custom data folder, these are found in the folders outlined below.

TMUF - my documents\TrackMania Forever
TMNF - my documents\TrackMania Forever

TMU - my documents\TrackMania United
TMN - C:\program files\TrackMania Nations ESWC\Game Data

TMS - C:\program files\TrackMania Sunrise\Game Data
TMO - C:\program files\TrackMania Original\Game Data

3) Unzip each archive into that folder, example with winRAR right click and "Extract Here", all the signs should just fall into place

Once In game when you click the paint bucket you will now find all your signs prefixed by TMX\ followed by it`s group code and then the sign name, a group code is found on every sign (Except the old community pack signs) and is a two digit code defining its colour-set and mood.

Here are the group codes

The first digit is to mark either its colour or whether it is a special pack sign. The second is it`s mood/time of day, which determines whether it has lights projected on it`s surface or not.

BD- = Blue Daytime
BN- = Blue Nighttime
GD- = Green Daytime
GN- = Green Nighttime
RD- = Red Daytime
RN- = Red Nighttime
YD- = Yellow Daytime
YN- = Yellow Nighttime
SD- = Special Daytime
SN- = Special Nighttime

So for example a Green Daytime down arrow when searching in game will be called TMX\GD-Down, and a Red Nighttime Slow Down sign is TMX\RN-Slow.

Quick tip, the forward 10 pages button will skip you forward approx one whole sets mood. eg BD>BN or BN>GD.

To help you locate which sign you want, we have supplied some guide sheets found in this thread here > Guide Sheets.

The community pack signs will be found prefixed by CMTY
