One-Click Zip and Other Features

Chris Phillips Site

We released some updates today. Most of them are stuff you won’t notice, including a set of improvements to our sales support systems. Here’s what you might notice:

Disabled Game-Ready certification submission: The option to submit for game-ready certification is retired. Any models currently submitted will go through the queue, and those that pass will receive the badge. Previously certified models will keep their badges.…

Invoices, watermarking turntables, copy to upload and a few more

Chris Phillips Site

Today we released a few new features and bug fixes. Keep the feature requests and bug reports coming.

New Features:

  • Customers can now get a nicely formatted invoice, instead of just a sales receipt. There is a new “Invoice” option under the “more” pulldown in My Purchased Products and Purchase History folders. You can enter a PO#, Company Address, VAT, etc.

Shift-Select multiple files in Add Files and more

One of the main things that helps TurboSquid keep improving is feedback from our artists and customers. This week we added a nice feature to the Publisher suggested by an artist, along with a few handfuls of bug fixes and upgrades.

Turntable and Preview Upgrades

Chris Phillips Site

After the last major release, we’ve been tweaking some of the features based on user feedback. This week saw a bundle of upgrades go out, so now is a good time to give a summary of what’s been improved.


We’ve seen a lot of artists taking advantage of turntables on their products and giving us useful suggestions for improvement. We’ve updated the system in a few ways:

  • You can now use up to 72 images in a turntable
  • Four digit padding is acceptable in naming (image-0001.jpg)
  • Both underscores and dashes are now acceptable (image-1.jpg and image_1.jpg)
  • Sequences can now start at frame 0

The vast majority of thumbnails that artists have uploaded since the main upgrade earlier this month are 600×600 and higher, taking advantage of the new options.…

Site Upgrades Oct 2010

Chris Phillips Site

Some site upgrades went online this week, focusing on improving the customer download experience.  We expect a couple of cosmetic tweaks, but this wraps up a large set of improvements to this section like inline downloads and multi-file zip downloads.

Simplification of Product Folders for Purchases & Downloads

  • Users really only wanted the main product files, and customers only wanted accompanying product files types, so we removed promotional preview files and thumbnails from the product’s file systems.
