I saw something about the ability too hide our models from the public, so I came up with a simple solution:
On models, decals, etc. Have an option called “Hidden” that can be checked on or off, having it on will be simple, does not list it in our assets, the catalog, and going directly to the link for it will give you an error page/404 page.
For groups, any people with “Create and edit group games” permission will be able too see the assets.
This will also prevent any place/studio from loading that asset unless they have permission.
The idea is too simply have hidden assets that can’t be found for updates/or other projects.
This has been brought up a number of times before, but I’d still like this. I really don’t care that users can still get my assets, but they don’t even have to work for it, at least make it inconvenient. We don’t need a page to show off our game assets that aren’t free to take.
“I do want to point out while in most cases a player doesn’t need to see assets that aren’t free to take, module scripts can conflict with that.”
The page shouldn’t be inaccessible – that’s not going to solve anything. All non-public assets should not show up in inventories and should not show up in search results. Get rid of this horrible “feature” and the problem is pretty much solved:
. The only problem with this for game is that you can’t join an inactive place, so if I wanted to hide my place while making it whoops I can’t test it on different accounts anymore.
