I think that the biggest strength of FC2 is the new capabilities produces by the level editor. The ability to use design pieces in levels is just pure amazingness.

I don't think I'm the only person who wants to congratulate InXile on their excellent work on FC2 so far!

I tired that too, but it says invalid, and not enough characters, because it has to be six...

This is dumb. Now I can not even play the original Fantastic Contraption because it says I am not a paid member! Ridiculous if I must say.
Well got to go to bed now. Better be fixed by tomorrow.

Hey, Does FC2 forums and design sharing stuff lag a bunch for you guys too?

Small problem, you might have done something with the database, changed my password recently, the sparkzworkz account uses my old one.

I don't use adblock, and I don't mind sitting through an ad once. But I don't have the patience to sit through an ad every time I click a link.


No, I totally get you. That link wasn't really directed at you, more for others who want ads to be gone entirely.

Jared



This is great news, I know that i myself would pay a bit more if it meant a bigger screen with no ads

The flashing piece is the "selected" piece. You can copy it with "c" and paste it with "v". You can also select multiple pieces and do the same.

Poots is right about the copy and paste, but the real reason that the last piece you placed or moved is auto-selected is because you can use the arrow keys to adjust selected pieces one pixel at a time. I often use that to place or move something and then push it as close as possible to the edge. You can also do this with a joint by selecting it(move it) and then adjusting it with the arrow keys.

Can I get confirmation on whether the levels from the level contest will be included as the current "locked" levels?

I'm not sure which level contest you're referring to?

The locked levels are our unannounced official levels. As far as I know it has nothing to do with any contests. They will all be new FC-2 levels instead of older FC-1 levels.

He's talking about this:

which I think might have been in anticipation of the Prius thing at some point.

Hey Squrl, try to log in again on sparkworkz.com, using your fc info. You had two identical accounts created 1 second apart and I believe it was confusing our new system. :)
