  POV parts
Posted by: Tim Gould - 2011-08-07, 21:54 - Forum: Rendering Techniques - Replies (15)

Post link to your custom POV parts here.

The main library is, of course, LGEO. It's great but it doesn't have everything.

  Tab order in the 'Start a new Topic' page...
Posted by: Anders Isaksson - 2011-08-07, 21:15 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - Replies (6)

Some people are actually using their keyboard, and don't want to lift their hands to the mouse more than necessary. As the tab order is now in the 'Start a New Topic', one has to TAB 24 times to get from the Subject to the Message. The expected tab order (at least for me) is Subject, Message, Options, Speed buttons in the edit window.

Edit 1: When later pressing 'Edit' on a post the cursor is placed at the end of the message, as expected.

Edit 2: When pressing 'Reply' the cursor is placed in some indefinite place, and it needs 25 tabs to get to the Message box.

Edit 3: The same when pressing 'Quote'.

  Forum *really* slow...

It's 23:00, GMT+1, DST and the forum is creeping. If this is how it will be, with only 10 active users, how will it be when there are hundreds?

  OMR File Spec - How to handle unofficial parts
Posted by: Orion Pobursky - 2011-08-07, 18:48 - Forum: Parts Authoring - Replies (7)

I'm drafting up a new OMR File Spec for submission to the LSC. My question to you is: how do we handle unofficial parts in the model files? I see few options:
- Disallow all unofficial parts - this is undesirable for obvious reasons
- Allow unofficial parts but only those that are not already released (i.e. no fixes for official parts)
- Unrestricted use of unofficial parts.

Note that by unofficial parts I mean parts currently on the Parts Tracker and found in the ldrawunof.zip. I don't think it would be productive or desirable to allow parts that are currently not on the PT.

  Too many subforums?
Posted by: Tim Gould - 2011-08-07, 3:09 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - Replies (7)

I've noticed that similar discussions are appearing in multiple subforums and that it can be quite hard to work out where a discussion should go (I've got this wrong and I had some say on the initial forum structure). This suggests to me that we may have fallen into the trap of overcategorisation that catches so many new forums.

I can't help but feel that in this case less may be more. I count 18 public forums which does seem a little like overkill to me.

This begs the following questions:

Are there too many forums and should we have fewer?

If so how many is enough?

And what should they be?

I'd like to open this one up to everyone so please have your say.

  LDConfig.ldr location and search order.
Posted by: Roland Melkert - 2011-08-06, 17:27 - Forum: Standards Board - Replies (3)

Don Heyse and Steffen asked us to discuss the location of LDConfig.ldr, and add it to the standard(s) somewhere, see:


Also it appears to me the general search order is documented poorly, or I'm I missing something?

All current standard docs are about file formats and such, we might need a separate one for the file/directory structures.

  why not open LSC forum for posting for everyone?
Posted by: Steffen - 2011-08-06, 16:18 - Forum: Parts Authoring - Replies (7)


I just wondered why I was not able to file a request/idea in forum
to the LSC.

Why is that door closed?
Should not everybody be able to file a suggestion there?

The issue I wanted to file there is:
an official location for ldconfig.ldr has not yet been rolled out officially,
see this post: http://forums.ldraw.org/showthread.php?t...346#pid346

However, the recent parts library updates issued it officially,
so it is a de facto standard now that ldconfig.ldr sits in the root LDRAW folder
(which is a Good Place ™ IMHO)

My request would simply be to add this to the standards documentation.
Or does that already exist somewhere?

Travis, in case you read this, could you move this thread to the LSC forum?
Or anybody else?

  PFS Train Motor
Posted by: Tim Gould - 2011-08-06, 2:25 - Forum: Parts Authoring - Replies (1)

Has anyone worked out the part number(s) for the new PFS motor x1688a? I've got a good working mockup with everything in the right place but no number to call it.
