a lot of the color checker icons don't seem to work too... Seems like they are arranged in order of upload,
since linked number ID continues linear.
Never understood the usability of this pool of unsorted colors :/

Also there are Materials invested with SPAM, some clean up is needed here:

I also would love to see a comeback of the vote button!

Complete redo if the matDB from scratch please.
OH! And while you're at it... redo the whole page aswell. :shock: :|

Well ...
... maybe let's start with re-upping the corrupted materials. Please.

Many of these missing ones help users to understand Indigo and it's possibilities.
It's probably no kind of advertising for your software you wish to do. :wink:
Cheers, David

Weird thing is that you don't get any error downloading them through the Indigo Material Editor
(at least on the ones I tried)

Thanks for the links, it is possible the pages for materials are broken because users that had posted comments on that page have been deleted (because of spam)

We'll see what we can do

Any news on when these will be fixed? I could do with the stainless steel material and its still b0rked.

EDIT - downloads through the material editor though (only just noticed the above post!) But to reiterate the point about new users, looks more professional and certainly easier for those testing the software with a view to buying if everything works on the website - it will be most peoples first port of call for materials to experiment with.

If you are in urgent need you can download the IGM manually instead of through your exporter.

Download through the material editor works here for me as well.

In order to have more control in the past I have downloaded materials analyzed the source files and then replicated them in Blendigo. That should work for any exporter.

All the above is only in case you really need a material urgently. A well rounded material Database that is kept up-to-date and where each material is kept functional with the latest releases of Indigo is essential.

As a new user that's one of the first features that you are going to play with. You would not hand a new business aquantance a business card with coffee stains either!!!

I tried to download asphalt from the website today and got an error message. This really needs to be fixed, guys.

Hi all,
I've fixed the error problem for some materials on my local copy of the MatDB. Hopefully the new version should be deployed sometime over the next few days.
