I'm on the right track, baby, I was exported this way!

Happy Pride Month, everyone! We're already halfway through the year – that's kind of wild, huh? Fingers crossed that we all get the opportunity to enjoy a stress-free and colourful June! Here's a hint to the singer I've referenced: "There can be 100 people in the room-"

Looks as if the biggest contenders today are the Persona games! There's tons of outfits and accessories to choose from. We've got Code Vein, Temtem, Dark Souls, Lightseekers Awakening, Metal Gear, and a mix of Mii models from myself; mostly Miitopia! Some media related games have made their way into the update as well, consisting of Pixar and a handful of TV shows. (Digimon makes an appearance, too!) 21 neat new custom models are here, and my personal favourites have gotta be Raymond by TheEnderDwonk + Starlow by None! Don't forget to check out the other creations, if you'd like!

Submitters, here's a tip from me: when it comes to renders, transparency is your best friend. There shouldn't be any backdrop and the render shouldn't be cut out through a photo editor, either. Fortunately, most rendering programs have the option to enable "alpha transparency" for the background of your image to save you all of the hassle! For example:

Posted Image

Submitting a model with icons like the first two is about the same as submitting a model with no icons at all; they may have to be re-rendered by us regardless. However, it's not a requirement to submit a model with icons, so please don't feel discouraged from contributing! It's simply encouraged to render 'em if possible in order to help speed up the approval process. (On Blender, I believe the option to enable it should be in the "Render" tab, underneath "Film." Hope this helps!)

Just think, "What would dodos do?" Stay fresh, and stay off the hook!

@_vissova_ I'm really starting to feel like a broken record here but assuming you haven't seen the other million or so times this question has been asked, it's not like we're keeping the staff small on purpose. Finding people that are both qualified and willing to review models is far easier said than done. The fact is, we're always looking for new staff but there are very few who would be suitable for the role and even fewer that would accept it given the amount of time and effort they would need to volunteer.

As for making icons mandatory, it's something I've thought about but they have historically always been optional because not everyone has the software needed to make them correctly and honestly, a bad or incorrect icon is just as bad, if not worse, than not having one at all.

I don't mean to be rude or anything like that but why can't you just get more staff, or at least make things like user-created thumbnails a requirement to save yourself the work?

why does the news keep making fun of my failed duskull model upload

@DrakeyC That mentality is unfortunately part of the problem with getting through model submissions. You said yourself that you were submitting a lot and didn't want to add the extra work to your process. That's fine since icons are technically optional (though strongly encouraged, especially for models) but just remember that you didn't want to do it for 200 models which means our extremely small staff has to instead. If most people feel the same way, that might mean 200 models for you or 5,000 for staff to have to do themselves.

Guilty as charged on using the first image for my (pending) submissions. But in my defense, I submitted over 200 models; my workload was gigantic enough without using another program to load the models to export screenshots with transparency, and then load those in an image editor for the icons.

Though there is no excuse for that second one. Ugh. Ew.

I just deleted two more comments from this update and want to quickly clarify for the members who posted them. Earlier, a comment was posted that broke our rules (as well as common decency) and was removed. Someone posted a screenshot of it on the Discord and I'm assuming that's why it was once again mentioned here but I don't want to draw any more attention to it than necessary so let's refrain from discussing it further. Thanks!

Yes! Also, if using Blender you can set your rendering scene to be the same dimensions as the big icon itself too, I believe, so you don't even have to worry about centering it!
