Mike site looks great just one thing i miss - Brands -
on the downloads page, if you are filtering to search for cars, there will be a brand drop-down where you can select the brand to filter by as well :)

Guess the gross of the design changeover is done...
Wanna emphazise again: Great job!
Especially the search box is very useful and works very well. An additional author search in the download section would be great, but the search box works good enough i think.

Anyways, got some small bugs i noticed and listed them here:

1.
The brand system with the drop down menu works fine so far.
Though it seems, somehow the pursuit brand has not received any entries since 8 months (when sorted by newest), although there were at least 4 releases of cop cars in the meantime:
Search: https://www.nfsaddons.com/downloads/all/cars/brand:!pursuit+cars/
Releases:
-https://www.nfsaddons.com/downloads/nfshs/cars/alpine/3313/alpine-1970-alpine-a110-1600s-gendarmerie.html
-https://www.nfsaddons.com/downloads/nfshs/cars/landrover/2798/landrover-pursuit-ranger-discovery-series-i.html
-https://www.nfsaddons.com/downloads/nfshs/cars/ford/2785/ford-police-interceptor-concept-hometown-sd.html
-https://www.nfsaddons.com/downloads/nfshs/cars/ford/2784/ford-police-interceptor-concept-atlantica-pd.html

I did not look through all the brands, but i think you should check whats going wrong there.
Furthermore, for searching brands, the filter should automatically deselect the options "Tracks" and "Files/Tools" (ergonomic issue)

2.
Minor bug related to profile pictures:
Seems that some avatar image dimensions can cause overlapping-issues at the comment section
Example: Comment by "Lotec" here:

3.
1930 Ford Model A Drag Pickup
I know i mentioned this before, but still the dead file is online as doublet.
So before the issue is forgotten and the valid, undamaged reupload gets removed, i mention it again:
The original upload by IH8COPS for this car is corrupted. The zip file (blank.zip) contains only folders, but no car.viv or other files. (Link, nfsaddons-car-id 82)
The reupload (thanks to pete9516) is exactly that - it is the unchanged, undamaged zip file (Link, nfsaddons-car-id 2834)
So you should keep the reupload or join the uploads to one entry.

4.
Site design:
Using the design for 2 months now and cope with most changes :)

Still, i think the white background colour is too bright and sterile (especially on the main page).
In my oppinion a colored background would look more convenient, maybe a blueish tone... What you think?

Okay thats all.. just some quick feedback from me.
Greetings

Those cars are uploaded with the brands set as Alpine, Land Rover and Ford, instead of Pursuit Cars. I will work on adding a tag so cars can have multiple categories like that, but that will take a bit of time to get setup and working properly.

As for searching by brand, if you select Cars, Tracks and Tools, and then select a brand, it will still show you the tracks and tools, and the brand is only related to the cars, obviously. I thought this might be useful if you still wanted to see the tracks and tools, but I can easily switch that up. What do others think?

Thank for pointing that out, I'll have to come up with some styling to prevent that

This has been fixed. I disabled the other one and setup a redirect so it goes to the new upload by pete. I also uploaded the original screenshot as an additional screen for pete's upload

I am planning on releasing a dark theme and people will be able to choose, so that should help there :)

Thanks for your continued feedback!!

Ha, thanks for continuously working on the site and keeping it alive!
That was a very quick reply, too :)

For 1.
Ah okay, so probably lot of pursuit cars are quite hidden...

And indeed, when selecting a car-brand i find it logical to display car results only

For 2. & 4.
Cool stuff. Not sure different themes are necessary, but optional features are always nice

For 3.
Thanks for fixing that.

Greetings... oh and Happy Halloween  >:D

Yeah, there are probably lots of pursuit cars hidden, but I don't mind tracking them down and adding an additional category once that functionality is set up.

Personally dark themes make my eyes hurt, but I know lots of people prefer that, so I'll at least have a light or dark option available in the future :)
