I do kinda wish there was some sort of script that would export generic null positions (or cube primative) over selected mesh positions. Would be super handy for combining/cleaning up scenes arranged in DR.

    I've got a solution for you. Make a func_static out of a small brush. Select the "model" key/value pair. Now deselect everything and select the models you want to extract position data from. In the entity inspector you should still have the model key/value pair queued up. Apply it to everything selected by clicking the green checkmark. Now all the models will be replaced with the brush you created. Export this selection of brushes as an obj.

    Scratch that. Exporting as obj doesn't work and I can't revert the brushes back to worldspawn either.

    You know now that I think about it. If I can use the world 0 0 0 set the same as Softimage, I might just be able to copy and paste the values out manually. Most of the big things I'm needing are rotation snapped anyways so that makes it easy.

Just got done watching The State of the Union Address. No regrets but 2018 looks like it's gonna be a packed year for sure. Pretty happy with what I heard overall.

    Trump didn't come out of nowhere. He has a life long record of being a blundering idiot. Sorry to burst that bubble for you. I had kind of hoped was that since he is so disgustingly rich that he wouldn't be so easily bought by corporations. No such luck... At this point it seems the most well thought out plan he had was to give himself and his 1% buddies a massive tax break.

    With the recent peaceful deposing of his South African mirror image Jacob Zuma we can only hope that the Reps grow some balls and actually stop brown-nosing Trump and come up with a different candidate that isn't going to start a nuclear war over twitter. Either that or they deserve to lose every seat possible in the midterms (wouldn't that be nice?).

Sometimes I wish you could tag people via @username to ping a user in a relevant post. Feels like it might be a blessing and a curse depending on how it would be used in a forum setting.

    It could probably piggyback off the notification that pops when someone quotes you on the forums. Without the big ole heading for a quote.

So if I was wanting to get a non-invasive thumbnail, does the TDM site support [size] BBcode for that? Trying and keeps saying it's not allowed on the site.

Has anybody had much luck not having random graphical glitches occur while using, mirrorRenderMap? Besides referencing the player position it just doesn't like to actually reference surrounding scenes correctly.

Well this sucks... I've used Photobucket for years and now you have to pay to allow other sites to view img links. All I gotta say is F%ck these guys, anybody else have a recommended permanent image hosting service?

    It always makes me laugh when a company gets so big and then decides that the way the Internet works, (which got them where they are) is no longer convenient for them. They then try to break standard functionality, in the hopes of driving up profits or gaining subscriptions, but in reality they just push people, even existing happy users, away.

Is there a way to encrypt pk4s? Because it would be a really great option if they could be.

    Twitter gets some good press on it's own if managed right. It's a shame ours has been neglected.

    Pardon my accidental status botch I somehow deleted the last post by mistake. Otherwise that's what I figured. Probably not any good way of retrieving those either.

    A good reason to upload and embed the images, perhaps, rather than merely link.

It may be that the articles are just really old (or now outdated) but I'd been seeing this a lot with the mover articles.

    Many are very out-dated, but I have archived doom3world tutorials that work in TDM through use of wayback archive (eg, https://web.archive.org/web/20121013012243/http://www.doom3world.org:80/phpbb2/viewforum.php?f=1). This is my primary resource for scripting and using movers / nurbs / etc...

    It might be worth taking a full snapshot of TDM wiki using wayback machine, as deep as it will go - if it wasn't for 2012 doom3world snapshots, much information on these subjects would be...

Is there a more sure fire way to combat images disappearing from the wiki articles? Feels like most that are older than two years have all broken links.

    Ouch. We host images locally but some wikis are created using images externally hosted. Example article?

I'd been telling a couple people but ya'll need to check out the Dark Reader browser app if you wants the darker pages. Works flawless on 80% of the sites I see and can easily revert back and store which sites I exclude. Pretty handy, and great for long nights.

    As a fan of dark themes, I always got in trouble when some website would override things and I would end up with white text on a white background. "Where is the article? I can't see it!"

I can't believe I'm strongly considering copying the shadow mtr reference just to rename it. If only it just used underscores instead...

    Since I don't have the luxury of using Lightwave for native lwo format, Softimage has some strange tendencies like replacing unknown symbols (and spaces) with underscores. Ordinarily that's fine because I never actually list names as file paths. I already have to re-export lwo files to correct smoothing with Blender but it just adds another unneeded step when I have to correct the materials too. This time it's really not an issue with TDM as much as it is with my software and prop...
