6) Version: Application version that was used to create this content.
7) Type: Corresponds with the type of organization in the Marketplace (will affect installation path).
8) Category: Corresponds with the category organization in the Marketplace.
9) Price: Decide how much your content is worth. Usually, one actor is worth 300 DA points and one prop is 60 DA points.
10) Preview image: the same preview images can be used for all items of a single content pack.
11) Tags: helps to categorize items for the search function. We suggest using pack and item names.
12) Embed Watermark: Remember to check this option for DRM protection.
13) Upload: When you start to upload content, make sure to check "Upload and hide from my store", otherwise, the published items can not be removed from the store.

Replacing Marketplace Content

If you have not published your content on the Marketplace or the Content Store, then you still have a chance to modify the content pack by removing and adding items. However, if the content pack is already published, then removing any item from the pack will cause watermarks to appear when the user tries to use it. This is because the specific item ID for the removed item can no longer be found by our servers. Therefore, if you want to adjust the problematic published content, you must use the Replace function.

In order to replace content, retrieve the original files that were used to create your custom content and start to upload the content by using the Content Uploader.

2) Item ID: Fill in the appropriate item ID which can be found from the URL of the content pack. Finish up by clicking the Replace button.

Visit the store page where your Item is located then copy the 20 character ID number by right-clicking the image(s) on the page and select "Inspect".
