I'm making something. No info yet, but basically, I need these 16 items in 4 categories.

-------------------------------
--||New Stuff||--
Bounce Pads
Power-Ups
Controllinator
Sackbots
--||Logic, etc.||--
Switches
Logic
Microchips
Movers
--||Visuals, etc.||--
Lights
Sounds
Materials
Emitters
--||Other||--
Community
General
Misc Tools
Cameras
-------------------------------

I already tried to put them into categories (as you can see), but I don't know if the categories are 'right'. How would you guys categorise these items? I'm not sure about the last category. I don't think Cameras should be in there, but I don't know where else to put it.

Thanks!

Considering most of that is "New", I wouldn't even make one dedicated to new ;)

Bounce Pads
Power-Ups
Controllinator
Sackbots
Switches
Logic
Microchips
Movers
Lights
Sounds
Materials
Emitters
Community
General
Misc Tools
Cameras

Hm... there are a few things there that belong with some other things, for example Controllinator is a Powerup, and you're missing the Grappling Hook.

If I may, I'd say make a section dedicated to Power ups, and have Controllinator, Grabbling Hook, and DCS... you don't have DCS? Huh. Well, yeah.

then perhaps one dedicated to gameplay features...

This would include

bounce Pads
Sackbots

Hm... well, can't think of anything else, but yeah.

Do we need to be restricted to those 16 items? :p

@RockSauron:

The item list is ripped from a particular source (rtm's list in the News Section) so, it's pretty much limited to those items :)

The DCS isn't there, because that's what the Controllinator is (name change, remember?). And although it's sort-of a power-up, I left it on it's own because it has a big section for itself in the thread, so I thought I should give it a big section in my project.

Oh, and none of these sections are going to be named. So even though I put "New Stuff", you'd never actually see that. In fact, categories are only implied by colour coordination. :D

No, you're thinking of the Creatinator, or the Emiter gun. The DCS is a different thing. And yeah, I think you may want to change some stuff... unless of course you tell us how it'd work :/

It was changed to Controllinator. Honest!

So now it's the Creatinator, and the Controllinator :)

Here's what I'm up to. It's not nearly done, and as such, will change a lot:

Also remember that it doesn't do anything just yet (the buttons don't work).
