If all goes well ER 1.8.3 should be released in 1-2 weeks.
What will this update add and remove?
- Admin ranks: Currently there are 3 ranks of admins (Monitor, Developer, and Creator). This is removed and replaced with Moderator, Mapper, Content (creator), Developer, Creator, and Owner.
|Admin Ranks||Moderator||Mapper||Content Creator||Developer||Creator||Owner|
|Override Map Protection||Y||Y|
- Map protection: there is a new option in the map properties called Owner. If you click this checkbox, then you will have ownership of the map and no one but you (and Creators and Owners) can edit that map. They can still use the dev panel on that map, but the map won’t be saved. If you are an Owner or Creator, then only higher ranking admins can edit the map. So if yo’re the owner, no one else can edit the map since you have to be a higher rank. This is a nice feature if you have multiple mappers and one of them likes changing the others’ maps.
So far this is all that’s been added (I had a problem with saving and loading the maps but it tuned out to be a packet issue). So far an updater won’t be needed for this update.
