GT3 paint rules updates:
As of today’s build, iRacing has implemented new number boards on GT3 cars that match the same number placement as IMSA series. This change should help simplify using custom paints between official IMSA series and non-IMSA sessions. It’s a good idea once you’re finished downloading iRacing’s updates to take a look at your GT3 paints in the sim and make sure they appear the way you wish.
Reminders: clean up your paint folders and check your settings!
With a new build and new cars, it’s a good time to take a moment and clear out any temporary files that might have accumulated throughout your racing journeys.
To do this, in Windows, navigate to your
Documents\iRacing folder and delete the contents of the
paint directory. If you’ve got any spare temporary files left behind, they’ll be cleaned up.
Trading Paints Downloader makes an attempt to keep this folder neat and tidy for you, but sometimes files might remain in memory and aren’t deleted right away when you close Trading Paints or iRacing.
