Here's a detailed changelog for the Mesh Modeler :
- Physics Materials : checkered materials useful for Not Visible Meshes to see which surface type faces have
- Custom Game Materials : these materials are game materials in which you can alter some parameters (like PhysicsID for example). Compared to normal custom materials, these ones are embeddable in maps !
- Several fixes

Hi, here are some new features for the map editor :
  • When moving around the camera (Alt or Free mode button), two little dots will appear to better see what you are focusing, and where your camera is.
  • The dot shows in pure white when you're moving, and darkens when you're not doing anything or when it is behind/inside something (can't see it directly), and even darker when it's both not moving & hidden
  • You still have 2/4/6/8 on the numpad to turn the camera, but it now turns by 45° steps instead of 90° steps which seemed nicer, just like it used to be in the TM Turbo controller editor.
  • Use alt+directional arrows to move around. If you're zoomed in, it'll go slowly, zoomed out it'll go faster. It starts a little slower and builds up speed, so just using little nudges allows you to move around just a bit, may be handy when working with small items.
  • Use Alt + and Alt - on the numpad to zoom in and out. Same idea, it builds up speed, you can just nudge the zoom a bit
  • Use Alt+PgUp and Alt+PgDown to smooth scroll up&down. Same thing as the directional arrows for the speed relative to zoom & the nudges.
  • You can also use Alt+Left click+Right click and move your mouse up and down to smooth scroll up and down
  • You can now change the Start, Checkpoint and Finish banner pictures in TM Stadium by skinning them. You may also do this through script like any other skinnable block.
  • Changing the MediaTracker intro no longer unvalidates maps
  • Plenty of new plugin script features are available, you can see them here : viewtopic.php?f=279&t=46249&p=309694#p309694
  • A few other bug fixes here and there

:) Thanks for these notes reggie1000 - very useful.
One point is a great little improvement: "Changing the MediaTracker intro no longer unvalidates maps".

Cheers! ... :pil
