Good news. I found the issue and it will be fixed with the next update. The SHIFT+ENTER mode is not working correctly. This has been fixed and SHIFT+ENTER and ENTER does work identical now. This eleminats any issues with new line removing
Although the UGX-Mods team (the few remaining ppl) stepped back from zombie modding, we still love to see so much user generated content and activity in the modding scene. Outstanding tools, amaizing maps,helpful tutorials and Q&A across the web - you guys rock!
The new UGX-Mods site overhaul is finally released and we hope we can grow bigger in 2019 with more cool features and improvements.
Our anticipated goal to release the UGX Launcher in 2018 was not possible due to personal events and of course the work on our site overhaul, but we are very optimistic that 2019 will be a great year with the release of the UGX Launcher which will finally replace the UGX MapManager and allows us to support and maintain the application as long as people are actively using it.
Over the past two years we noticed less activity and this year we try to find solutions to bring back the good old times. If you have a great idea or want to help us -> let us know! On the other side: we are close to 500k registered members (crazy!) and we will hit it this year for sure.
A big thank you goes to our site and chat moderators - we wouldn't be here without them! Of course also a big shoutout to our V.I.P's (former UGX-Mods members / partners / etc.), our lovely Donators and of course every single user who are with us and keep this community alive. Thank you
I found the issue and it's fixed. It will be rolled out with the upcoming update and won't annoy you again ;)Also the style of it within the editor has been fixed, it looks now 1:1 with the forum post.
I try to implement ordering by date / creation. Please not that this tool is meant for exporting your data according to GDPR and not to search your posts. That should be possible under https://www.ugx-mods.com/forum/profile/area=showposts;sa=messages (although I'm unsure if it will show messages which are moved into a private area)
Update: I'll discuss the map idea section soon - no worries. Just have a lot to do
Current State: Most of the issues have been resolved by now. We will monitor the situation and will do further improvements and optimizations if needed. The Forum / Site has some critical issues atm.The most dramatic one is the 502 error thrown by Cloudflare due to most likely our server.I assume it's performance related and my hopes are to find a solution during the weekend.
If you encounter issues a simple reload should most likely fix it. - I know: not perfect - but thats what you get when a single developer is responsible for everything and only a small testing group checked the beta site out.
after over two years it's finally here, our site overhaul. It was a long and stressfull journy and we are happy to finally share this project with everyone.
Please forgive us if there are some issues in the next few days, we will monitor the site and might hotfix issues which we simply couldn't find in our Closed, Donor & Open Beta
Most noteworthy changes compared to our old site:
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
Today is an exciting day for us. We have finally released our new UGX-Mods Forum as Open Beta to everyone.
Simply head over to https://beta.ugx-mods.com to get started - be sure to give us feedback (see below) so that we can improve it before it goes live on our main domain (production).
Please note: Your user settings won't be carried over, so beta and non beta (production) won't share the same settings. This also effects some forum settings and statistics like total forum user count and such.
Other than that, Beta and Production share the same data and you are free to use Beta as long the Open Beta goes.
You can also share beta links, once we move out we simply redirect the links to the correct site
Before we dive into the major changes, let's talk about you and your privacy first!

You can also write here directly on this announcement.
We evaluate your feedback and put it into our development roadmap. Hopefully you are excited with the new forum and everything works out smoothly. That would mean that production would be soon ready for the new forum theme.
It has been a long journey for me (Delta) and I'm personally very excited to share with everyone my work
