A quick question

Post by JosefYurnov99 on Fri Jun 01, 2012 5:07 pm

When I see models posted here there is a model name written at the top of the text box.

Example :

Code:


//Basiccar  <--(what's this for?)
VAL
      Engine(blah blah)
etc.


Does it matter if the name in the box corresponds to the vehicle I made? Most of my vehicles go under //Cube or //Basiccar. What will it effect if I change it?

Nope, it doesn't matter. That's treated as a comment by RC when it loads the model. You could write
Code:
//super pirate ninja turtle monkey sandwich maker
and RC wouldn't care any more than if you just went straight for the VAL block.

It doesn't matter for code, no. However, I think it was initially included simply as a useful reminder/explanation of what the vehicle is that you're working on, which many people simply never bothered to change after they created a new vehicle using Basic's .txt file as a template. Wink
