Ok. Everyone say their tips for creating stuff and I will edit this and add the tips, with your name.

EDIT: I will check back every once in a while and add the posts. ALSO the tips don't have to be EXPERT tips, they can be as simple as telling the functions of different switches.

I hope this can be a great collaboration of creation tips!

PERMANENT SWITCH
It's easy to make a permanent switch! Put a piece of dark matter somewhere with some dissolve. Put a magnetic key on the dissolve and the magnetic key switch on the the dark matter. Have the magnetic key switch inverted and hook it up with whatever you need permanently switched. Hook the button up with the dissolve and there you go! -chezhead

MISCELLANEOUS TIPS!
Take your time!! Play test loads (getting others to help is helpful). And learn the thermo, knowing how to optimize is a god-send when it's starting to fill, you'd be suprised at what removing unused vertices, unneeded materials and tweaking emitters can do. -GrantosUK

I think the problem is that most everything is already covered somewhere in here: Tutorial Spotlight (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7260)

I would suggest reading through there to see if there's anything that hasn't been mentioned. There's a section called "The Creation Process" which links to threads similar to this one, which is a pretty complete guide to everything creation related.

Yeah, most of this is already covered. Wouldn't be wise to create yet another creation tips thread.

I can't give thanks to comphermc again, but good point... I should have looked for stuff like that... Silly me!
