New Blocks for Stadium posted by    eyebo«way¬ at 16 May, 2019

A number of new blocks were added to Stadium this month, including some hidden ones added for ZrtCup. You may have noticed some maps here on ManiaExchange already using the hidden blocks.

You can access the blocks yourself by either of these two methods:
- Use this OpenPlanet script which unlocks all the blocks. It also unlocks the new linked checkpoints feature.
- Use these macroblocks that   ThaumicTom was kind enough to make for us. Check the readme.txt in the zip for install instructions.

Please note: We have no guarantees the hidden blocks will stay in the game. The folder structure in Stadium has been reorganized to better accommodate the new blocks, so we assume they'll stay. But maps could break in the future. Use at your own risk.

  • PSA - Attention Mappers - Please don't use Ultra lightmaps for now! posted by    eyebo«way¬ at 06 Feb, 2019
    Some of you have enabled the option to compute Ultra lightmaps for your maps. There's currently a bug that causes some undesirable graphics issues with maps that were computed using Ultra. After computing on Ultra the map will look good to the author, but will have graphics issues for others that play the map, since the lightmap that is embedded in the map file is compressed and not the full Ultra quality.

    Therefore, we recommend that you use lightmap quality no higher than "High" until the bug is fixed.

    If you've computed on Ultra, and want to see your map as others see it, just clear your cache from your launcher settings, and then open the map normally in-game via Local Play.
