    Hi. I'm new to the forums so I'm not totally sure if this is the right forumpage to ask about this :)

    I have couple questions. I'd appreciatiate it a lot if you would be so kind to help me out a little.

    1. All the entities on the camerascreen change between their models and blocks depending on how far I am from them. I looked for a option to turn this off because it is irritating, but I couldn't find one. Do you know how to fix this? There is two screenshots below to showcase what I mean.

    2. You can see in the above pictures a bridge over a little river. The and the bridge should be at a 90 decrees angle. Is there a way to have the program calculate the angle or do I have to manually adjust the angle? To clarify the side of the bridge and the side of the river should from a perfect cross if you were to watch it from above.

    3. There was a option to add your steamprofile "activity bar" below your forumposts. It asked for me to visit a page to make the bar id. I only found 3 urls there so if the bar ain't working can someone explain where at the page that id is located. If it works already then nevermind ^^.

    Thank you in advance.

    1) You can increase the distance this happens on. Go to tools>options>3D view and change the model render distance to do so.

    2) I'm not sure if there is an "official" way to do that, but you COULD calculate the angle of the riverbed (x), and rotate the bridge 90+x degree

    3) I don't think we've used the steam activity bars for a while. Amusingly enough, i didn't notice they were gone till you mentioned this.


    Welcome to the forums btw :)
    Enjoy your stay!

    The steam bars got borked so we had to pull them.

    Dunno when they are going to be back.
