Stage 1 - Select Area:





This stage let's you select which section inside the MTS2 downloads area that you want to upload items to. It works like a normal select box but with additional drill down functionality.

When you have chosen your area, click the Next button.

Stage 2 - Select Category:





This screen only appears when the area that you have chosen has categories available to choose from - these are mostly the Lots and Clothing areas as well as a few others.

If you don't see this screen, don't worry! It just means your chosen area doesn't have any sub-categories available.

When you have selected a category (if applicable), click Next.

Stage 3 - Announcements:





This screen shows you any relevant Announcements within the download section that you will need to read. Currently it only has one, but at a later date we can display announcements on a per-forum basis so you'll always get the correct information for your upload.

Click Next to continue.

Stage 4 - Upload Files:





This stage acts very much like the Manage Attachments screen you have been familiar with on MTS2 - in fact it's the same just embedded inline into the page.

Once you have attached the files and pictures for your upload, click Next.

Stage 5 - Custom Content:





This stage is important! Essentially it examines the zips and rars you upload and looks inside the .package files to get some details. It then queries the Package Database for a match to that information.

You will be presented with a series of boxes listing all the package files and a description. You must fill in all the boxes!

Put in the following information:
- A title for the package
- The Creator's name
- The Creator's site or area where to get the file from

If you created the package file then tick the box but only do this for your own uploads!. If we see custom content "made by you" that obviously isn't, then that is grounds for a rejection.

The only exception to this rule is terrain paints where you don't know who made them. In that case only, put in "Terrain Paint" into the title, creator as "Unknown" and Link as ""

When you have finished filling in all of the boxes, click Next.

Stage 6 - Upload Type:





This screen appears only if you are uploading to a section that can hold different types of Uploads - generally most areas except Lots, Sims, and the Game Mods sections.

Choose what kind of upload you are making, then click Next.
