Hey Cerovan!
I'm happy to see this. Thank you. The documentation is really looking much better!

One thing I might suggest is that in some areas of the docs it would be nice to specify a bit more often (TM only) or (SM only). There are a many people that might be confused by descriptions that don't specify which game mode they are for.
In fact it might be nice to have SM and TM documentation separate. However, I am aware that many aspects overlap so I'm not sure the best way to do this.

Hello, it could be nice to have more information about the mesh modeler and the item editor in general :thumbsup: some of the description are really small actually "We'll get back to some of the buttons later" we can read in the doc which allow us to think that the doc is not over
Also once you make a custom item you sometimes have a weird placement for the block, we could also have a description of the placement settings for example.
Last I have a bug to report with the paint mode but I'll do it the correct topic 8-)

Since the dedicated server has been stripped down, it is much less easy to make it run from the scratch. Please provide an additional package with all necessary files per title, with sample maps for ShootMania and with campaign maps for Trackmania.
And let a work student or apprentice try to make run a server in house... It should give you hints what is still missing there.

Why did you not keep the list of official title ids in the documentation? One link to title ids is broken btw, it's pointing to the not existing documentation page.
