Asphalt 8 Decal

A Koenigsegg One:1 with a decal on, Asphalt 8: Airborne.

Decals, also known as Visual Customizations, are visual customization items that can be applied to cars in the Asphalt series. Note that decals do not affect a car's performance characteristics, only visual appearance.

Asphalt 7: Heat and Injection Edit

Decals can be applied onto a car since the initial release of the game. Most decals must be unlocked by earning Stars.

Asphalt 8: Airborne Edit

Introduced in the Decals Update in March 2015, decals may have to be purchased with in-game currency, although they are often available as prizes in Time-Limited Events. A number of them are also obtainable via Mastery Rewards. The value of a decal depends largely on the value of the car it is associated with, as well as its attractiveness. Decals range from simple stripes to more complex and/or attractive designs. Decals can cost either credits or tokens.

Decals start at A8Credits 6,000 and can reach as high as A8Credits 1,200,000. They also can cost Tokens, ranging from A8Tokens 40 to A8Tokens 6,000. The Koenigsegg One:1 and Savage Rivale GTR have decals by default; in this case, both cars actually have custom textures that were once selectable colors in the San Diego Harbor Update and Winter Update, albeit with each one marked as an "Unofficial color".

Since the Elite Cars Update, there are two Decal Packs that can be purchased as an IAP. One pack, costing US$29.99 and titled Top Contender Decal Pack (awards 3,000 VIP Points), grants decals from the most popular cars between the Decals Update and Santa's Gift Update, ranging from the Ferrari 330 P4 to the TRION NEMESIS. Another pack, costing US$74.99 and titled Garage Kingpin Decal Pack (awards 7,500 VIP Points), grants a huge selection of decals from almost all cars in the game all the way up to the Alfa Romeo 4C from the Lunar New Year Update. It is worth noting that this decal pack will actually give the player some decals that are normally not purchasable under normal circumstances.

Since the Rio de Janeiro Update, decals are awarded as Daily Login Bonus rewards by leveling up in the VIP System. VIP Level 2 users start receiving exclusive decals as Daily Bonus rewards, while VIP Level 9 users also start receiving the more exclusive Premium Decals as Daily Bonus rewards. The decals awarded depend on the player's VIP Level; for instance, a VIP Level 4 user may receive a decal for the Renault CLIO R.S. 200 EDC as their final Daily Bonus decal reward for the month, while a VIP Level 7 user may instead receive a decal for the Aston Martin V12 Zagato as their final Daily Bonus decal reward for the month. The VIP System may also give players special decals that are unlockable only through Events and/or Multiplayer League Seasons (like the one for the Aston Martin V12 Zagato pictured above). If the player already has the decal, the game will instead reward the player with credits as compensation.

Since the Multiplayer League Update, decals are awarded as Multiplayer League rewards for earning and saving points. Up to 8 decals can be earned for each Multiplayer League Season.

Decals that cost either tokens or are Event-exclusive decals are called "Premium Decals". However, not all token-purchasable decals can be classified as "Premium Decals".

If the player attempts to buy a decal for a car they currently do not own, the game will pull up a confirmation box saying that the player doesn't own that car yet and asking if they want to buy that decal anyway.

Trivia Edit

Asphalt 7: Heat
  • Certain decals are unlocked by earning Stars.
Asphalt 8: Airborne
  • In the Mastery Rewards screen, the decal pack previews curiously show a Maserati GranTurismo Sport wearing each decal despite the car actually having no selectable decals.
  • The Lotus Exige S Coupe has a "built-in" decal on its standard paint selection.
  • The 9FF GT9 VMAX and Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series both have decals which have been removed permanently due to controversy over their Japanese samurai themes and the use of the Rising Sun Flag of Japan, which is de facto banned in countries like South Korea due to its use in World War II.
    • This is also because of Japan being part of the Axis powers during World War II.
  • The Honda Integra Type-R and BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage each have a decal that costs A8Credits 1,200,000, the most expensive decal in the game.
  • One of the decals for the ED Design Torq costs A8Tokens 6,000, making it the most expensive decal for any car in the game and costs more than the car itself at A8Tokens 4,000.
  • Since v2.3.0, almost all Chinese New Year 2015 decals can no longer be purchased and can only be instead won via Events. Strangely, only three Chinese New Year 2015 decals on the Lamborghini Veneno are still obtainable normally, even as of the Lunar New Year 2017 Update.
    • Since the Lunar New Year 2017 Update, all Chinese New Year 2016 decals introduced in the Lunar New Year Update can no longer be purchased as well.
  • Decals are hidden in the internal data, in the "decals.bin.libx" and "decals.libx" files in the "decals" folder.
  • Almost all of the new cars released through the recent updates lack decals of any kind. This may be due to the requirement to keep updates under 2 GB in size.[1]
Asphalt Xtreme
  • Mastery includes unlockable decals as prizes.
