The old Reactions system was our own extension to XenForo, but it's now been included in the core as per the latest update. We are however working on some enhancements, which you should start to notice over the next couple of weeks. What exactly is it you miss from the old system?

The one I miss most is the way reactions were displayed before. I'd rather have the separate icons with the number displayed next to them rather than it all bunched up and with the names there.

The old reactions used images, whereas the new ones use emoji - re-enabling the old ones causes some...issues. :P

Correction: the old images are SVGs and the new ones are from a png sprite sheet... the old SVG images show up huge, and emojis show up too small... gah.

Ah I see. Are you not able to create a custom sprite sheet and use that one?

Could we have a thread where people could list what buses they wish were in OMSI 2? I'd start with a proper Renown. Not the MM2 one we currently have. And maybe some older buses like the Lynx or Bristol RE.

It might be pointless, but if love the option to have a ‘Favourite Threads’ for threads that you might be active in, but can often be hard to find?

As a request, I'd maybe add a UKDT-icon reaction, only for UKDT themselves, e.g. for Staff Pics, for very good mods that UKDT approve of. :)
Maybe even one for V3D Studios, if they want one. :)

Over on the BeamNG.forums, they've done something like this, see Staff Pick, BeamNG icon on topmost post. ;)

I think it would be a half decent idea if there were say nominations for best user of the year or best download of the year. Kind of like Screenshot Of The Month, just an idea

Hiya, we're not doing anything where staff show favouritism for specific members or where the UKDT officially "approves" of something which has been posted.

We already respond to content we like the same way as everyone else, if you need that kind of validation, and prior experience has shown that running any kind of competition for "best user" or similar tends to just end up in people posting endless streams of meaningless and unhelpful posts in an attempt to be spotted by a staff member.

Best download, maybe, but good content brings itself to the top anyway

SotM never left, it just gets forgotten about every now and then :oops:
