That would be great way to do it! Maybe as a link ("Blocks") under "View more smilies". Is that possible, Fix? ;)
If you don't have the separate block images lying around, I can send you mine. :)

I apologise now for any re-order that will occur in the future, when we will add blocks and will have to split folders. Storm is going to be re-arranged quite a lot in the next update, I'm glad you just did TM :oops: .
No need to apologize. We love new blocks! :D
Besides, it will only be a matter of shifting filenames around. There are apps for that kind of task.

Just thought you might like to know that Fix and PapyChampy both complimented your work in the "What new block do you want to see?" Topic. :D
It really is such a nice idea and so helpful when talking about blocks to see what is referenced. :thumbsup:
Also I agree that it would be a cool feature if it could be implemented into the forums as a menu like the smiley's but would it take up too much space? Could a pull down icon menu be created?
None-the-less what you have done is awesome!

Thanks for those kind words. :)
There are lots of ways to do it. Let's hope they will consider hosting the blocks in the forum somehow. That would be the most future proof. Anyway, the important thing is that we have a solution now that is working.

Smilies are usually animated GIF, and very small to reduce loading time.
But this idea is also great :thumbsup:
Perhaps Nadeo could even provide the original images so you don't need to copy&paste them from screenshots.

I'm sure that we can find some place on our servers to host the images :thumbsup:

(and do a BBcode for it in the next forum ? Let's dream :lol: )

Thanks :)
Tedious work, so I'd rather be finished with it sooner than later.

Finished? :?
Now please make preview images from the game so one can see the blocks much larger ;) :mrgreen:

Joke aside, you already have done a huge job :clap:

But did you think of the terraforming blocks (all games) and of the first set of official objects (Valley)? :?
