My next thought (to self): "Be helpful to Skyslide and add the .loc file link, even though you are unworthy.

You can have locators for objects? :?
LOL is that a serious question?

You don't need locators for embedded items. The item is embedded directly in the map gbx file.

ManiaPark auto-generates loc files because it was set up that way for cars and skins, and so it carried over to items, but it's totally useless and unnecessary.

415 objects not 1275
nadeoimporter creates 3 files for each object, a 4th one for checkpoints (trigger)
Oops :oops: :lol: (that was of course from a file count), but still, 415 is a massive collection! Nice work buddy. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the clarification eyebo. All these years I've believed a .loc file is essential if one's work is to be shared. I never knew this does NOT apply to embedded items.

Isn't that actually obvious? ;)
Embedded objects don't need to be downloaded dynamically by the game.
Although you have to download them manually before adding them.

However, if the map editor had an integration with Maniapark, like showing a list with suitable objects and packs, then the locators would make sense again.

the locators at maniapark are build automatically by the upload script, actually they have no sense at all :? (as eyebo already said)
for items they have no use, this will be fixed in the future 8-)

maybe misleading for some peoples that they are visible...

Are they still needed for non-embeddable items? (Items that use custom textures)

They never found an use. Items with custom textures require custom tps or everyone to store them locally
