DarkRadiant 2.6.0 is ready for download. This feature release is further improving on the Model Exporting capabilities and introduces smaller features like a mapping time stopwatch and the ability to define favourites in the Media Browser, making it more convenient to work with a large number of materials. On top of that, this build offers a number of fixes and improvement for various parts of the editor. It's recommended to prefer this version over any previous release.

Windows and Mac Downloads are available on github: https://github.com/codereader/DarkRadiant/releases/tag/2.6.0 and of course linked from the website https://www.darkradiant.net

Thanks go out to all who helped testing this release!

This is great. The combining models saves me so much time for what I was having to do manually.

You need a model? Epi does you a model.

Thanks for this, greebo!

I like how, even after you "retired" as a coder for us, you're still one of our most productive contributors. :laugh:

Keep rocking the free world!

I'm still getting an unspecified error when exporting a collision model, that's taken from a brush model that was exported as .ase and imported by right-click "add model", because it's trying to export the collision model to the same path as the model... and the file is in use by DR, so it's locked.

(please don't make me use zbrush or blender...)

After setting the origins to be the same as the model - if I make a mistake while tweaking it a bit, and try to undo it - I get a "failed to save collision model" and DR crashes.

(I just realised I don't need the collision model, as the brush model is bound to a mover and will cause damage, so dw about it - should push the player back anyway).
