Once you have done so, a new page will appear. Here, enter the name of the vehicle type that you would like and select your custom map picture by clicking the “Add Image” button highlighted in orange in the picture below.

When you click on the button, it will open a new window where you can navigate to where your image is. It is highly advisable to upload images with a resolution between 1366×768 and 1920×1080 pixels with the blueprint near the edges for the best mapping experience. Select your custom damage map and click on the “Open” button highlighted in orange in the picture below.

Create your different sections by using the 5 different tools that we have. They are Polygon, Free Hand, Square, Box, and Cursor. At any given time, you can press the “Esc” key on your keyboard to undo the last action that you did.

Polygon

To use this tool, simply click on the points on the custom damage map to connect the dots and when you are done, double click to automatically make it a polygon.

 

Free Hand

To use this tool, simply draw on the custom damage map. It will automatically create the section according to what you’ve drawn. We recommend that you use this with a drawing pen.

 

Square

To use this tool, simply click on a point and drag your mouse to create a square. The point you click on will be the middle of the square.

 

Box

To use this tool, simply click on a point and drag your mouse to create a box. The point you click on will be the starting point of the box.

 

Cursor

This tool helps you to change the shape of your section. For example, if your polygon is out of shape, you can change the shape of it by using this tool.

After you have created a section, click on the blue “Save” button highlighted in orange in the picture below.

 

Step 7

Once you have clicked on the “Save” button, a new window will appear. Here, type in the name of the section and the price for damages. Next, click on the blue “Save” button highlighted in orange in the picture below to save the section.
