Hey Octane staff

Im making this request because the "General" forum is getting a little messy with requests, ressources, support and deep thinkings about Octane

What about adding a "Ressources" forum or "Sharing" forum dedicated to sharing things

For now it would be, textures, environements, models, obj scenes, tutorials, various graphical industry news, speaking about contests in other forums where you can use Octane etc..
In futur it would be also sharing Octane materials, scenes, light setup, camera settings?, nodes?, scripts? etc... who knows

This is just to make the "General" forum a little bit more clean, because in 1-2 months when the user number gonna increase its gonna be a huge mess :lol:

Thanks ;)
(edit: would be good also to move all the topics about sharing into the dedicated forum once created 8-))

Also need to add that I have tons of links to share but I don't want to post too much in the general forum :lol:
Will be very happy to flood the Ressources forum with good quality things ;)

+1 one to the above, with people sharing material set ups, HDRi maps, textures and more. This part of the forum is going to get overcrowded fast.

ok, but 1 more forum, that's enough.

the only thing, can anyone come up with a decent name for it ?
'resources or sharing forum' sounds quite strange to me.
