  1. Thanks for your fast replies Diana and Kimmy! I think, I understood now which effect changing the general sea-level has on the different locations in my room, so you really helped me a lot! It feels like I should simply test different hight adjustments of the whole cave in relation to that level first before taking the next step of designing the interiour of it.... We'll see where it leads me:) Cheers to you! xTomx.
  2. Hello, just a short question to all you pro builders: I created a cave inside an island in my private room. The tunnel goes down far below sea-level so right now anyone who enters it must have big lungs to reach the floor How is it possible to get it dry or to create room that are located below the general level of water in the rest of the room? I bet there's a simple setting or function for that? Thanks in advance for your tips! xTomx.
  3. hey, i'm playing on bootcamp and idk how to make the trackpad and keyboard controls work. you were talking about a workaround. I'd really appreciate it if you could help out. Thanks in advance

      Hello Vlad,

      that sounds like you're playing on a laptop not a desktop machine? that means you have to care about the trackpad controls, too...and that's the real drag because right-click functions only partly work all the time.

      I'd generally suggest to use a cheap external mouse for controlling the cam and other stuff in 3DX because you need the right mouse button for nearly every functionsince the last patch.

      I don't have a real workaround for you, I only fiddled around much with the 2 different locations in which settings can be made:

      The basic keyboard and mouse-settings in the system preferences of WIN and finally in 3DX itself.

      I had a hard time finding the right Bootcamp / Apple drivers for the trackpad and the mouse in the first place.

      -I am on WIN 8 still...a real bitch when it comes to bluetooth-mouse, audio and Apple drivers in general.

      The key is to find the right ones for your MacBook or whatever you're playing on in combination with the windows version.

       

      Set any function, hotkey and shortcut similar to a windows keyboard ( I activated the fn functions in the system preferences, too for example), try to switch on the "gaming mode" in Bootcamp and test different settings.

      I finally got the right-click partly working, just enough to scan a room when I enter the game shrotly to stay in touch with friends, butI  switch to n real mouse for extended playing.

      Search for "Right button functionality" + Apple mouse  + Bootcamp / Windows in google, I stumbled across a driver kit for my Apple mouse. I'll have to look up whats the name of it and it is discontinued now but still gets the job done...it needs a confirmation at every boot of WIN do function but still brings functionallity of the trackpad ( in mentioned limits).

       

      Message me again of you can't proceed, ok?

       

      Cheers from Tom :)

      Hello again Vlad.

      I am no computer pro myself so I had to find the most things out by plain trail-and-error.

      The main problem is that Apple is so restrictive when in comes to hardware and possibilities to use other brands or windows stuff...it all starts with the limits of Bootcamp itself! In my case it was simply impossible to get the audio working in the installed Windows 8 as long as the whole HD was not formatted in a specific way.

      ...Update your macOS for example and you are stuck with new Bootcamp drivers that might not work with your installed Windows version or hardware!

      I am on macOS Majave here finally but had to install older Bootcamp drivers that support a WIN 8.1 installation and additional ones to get my oder MacBook Pro keyboard and trackpad to work.

      So you might specify your environment and the acutal problems you run into?

      -It sounds like everything works enough to get a glimpse through a cam in 3DX at least?? :)

      So again:

      -Check for compatibility of Bootcamp version and drivers for your machine and installed OS/Windows

      -try updating the Bootcamp drivers in Windows again

      -check for the right driver versions for your specific hardware in Windows itself.

      .google for an Apple keyboard-layout workaround, eg. using the fn+ctrl+alt on the Apple keyboard instad of the "normal" PC keys and hotkeys for certain functions.

      I hope this helps you a bit?

  4. Update: Oh my, finally I'm back into business!! I found my skin under the waterfall on Love Island:)
  5. Does anybody of you experience the same: After the last patchsome colours seem to be non-existent? I lost all my skin and parts of my clothing, too on my Avatar! Only the head is visible and the t-shirt...no jeans, shoes, np hair and yes: no dick, too! But the real drag is that I see the other players bugged, also: Colours seem to be reversed, mostly brighter colours don't seem to be displayed at all and other skin tones seem far to dark brown. There seem to be many clothes missing in my character Editor. I tried to reinstall the game with no imrovement! Any suggestions?
  6. Hello to you all, shurely you tried not only to change the formats but to reduce the size of the pics, too? I had the problem of only the wheel Spinning for ages but not Progress with the upload until I treid a smaller copy of the Picture!
  7. Yes, Shane, that's correct. Good luck with the Installation! Greetings from Tom.
  8. Thanks for your tips! It was possible to upload PNG only for a while, as Linda stated but now it changed again? I suggest to test both formats if you run into roblems with uploading. Goold luck for colourfuls pics:) Greetings from Tom.
  9. Hello again dani, try the following: -ninstall the crippled 3DX Version with the uninstaller -download the installer from the 3DX homepage and run as administrator: un-tick the chebox to automatically launch the game in the process -let the patcher update it to the last build -run the 3DX Chat application as Administrator from the game-folder It worked for me after some hustle! Good luck dani! Greetings from Tom.
  10. Hello dani, I experience the same thing here! I have to download the installer again now. I'll get back to you as soon as I found out more. Tom.
  11. Oh, it's so sad that you still have so much issues! Because I heard that many players start to leave the game because of just that! @Max: If the game loads but you can't see anyone in it (-nor your own profile data), it really sounds like some kind of connection problem to the game server. There are 2 sets of settings to check or to fix always: The ones in OS X and in Parallels, too! I stopped fiddling with Paralles at one Point because, even getting a playable Setting in the end, it crashed too often ): But I read a forum entry about a coming 64-Bit version of PlayOnMac!! There are already some test-files available on GitHub but taht will take some time until there will be an official version coming out, I think. The game is fully playable on a windows partition on a Mac, at least for me...I hope this can be an incentive??-No mouse or conttrol issues or Screen flickerings anymore. I'd offer a cocktail on the beach bar on the nightly Love Island, too...if that helps:) Good Luck! Tom. Specs: iMac i5, 3.1 GHz, 32GB (older machine) Win 8.1 Bluetooth Mouse
  12. Hello Qween, if you already have the desired picture stored on your computer, you can resize it or save it in another format. For example simply reduce it by 50% and save it as a PNG (which can be uploaded into your profile). I use the built-in graphics tool "Paint" in Windows for that. Good luck! Tom.
