I'll be brief. For those awesome, self-promoting modellers (like me, just kidding) who have a new finding ingame, or whatever, post them here. It should give you some satisfaction that you "are contributing", and it will also help those that may need the extra boost/inspiration get what they want.
To those who are posting, please provide pictures and or a description of how it works. If you trust that your picture is self explanatory or your wording gets the point across, the other can be dropped. In other words, people looking for guidance will have to be able to directly understand what you are implying and will be completely able to do it themselves.
Irrelevant comments (comments that are personal and do not have any educational value for the community) are disapproved of, unless you find something wrong or needs clarification. Otherwise, a PM to the author should suffice.
I'll start it off with some. Good example:
Support killing tip. If you are tired of having shadows appear whenever using Jcat's support killers (works only on steel supports, not wood), a good way is to place them 1H underground. The SK still retains its effect, and there are no shadows. NOTE: terraforming afterwards can produce unexpected results. (I think I already mentioned this somewhere, but that was a long time ago)
The tip is clear and is unambiguous. A person who has problems with Jcat's support killers can quickly understand what the post is saying.
I'll let this just speak for itself:
The post does not say how I built the station. I just posted a picture and figured whoever was using it could figure out how everything was put together. He also does not mention what CS packs were used.
I figured I've said everything I've needed to say. Let the ideas flow.
EDIT: please refer to which game you are talking about. Some content can be initially confusing (for some people).
EDIT: I'll say that double-triple posting is OK, given that having three different tips in one post is rather hard to read en masse.
EDIT: I guess comments and questions are allowed, given that people are asking questions anyways and giving feedback as well. Just please keep the comments constructive and helpful. (No "hurr, that's so cool, I gotta try that someday" stuff)
EDIT: Figuring out that "Inspiration" means sometimes just screenshots, I guess screens of your creations without much explanation will do. Just be prepared to answer questions when people ask "How did you do that?" or "What is your formula for making gardens?" etc etc.
