FAQ

Where can I find...?

Try looking through the different forums to see what you can find. For example, say you're looking for a level editor. That would be found under the "tools" section. If you're looking for model hacks, music hacks, code hacks, etc., check in the Horizon Store. If you still can't find it, well, there is a search button for a reason

Help, I'm banned!

First off, look at your title. Your title should give you a reason for your ban along with a duration. If a duration isn't present, then you'll most likely be banned until further notice.

What do the different username colors mean?

The colors represent gender and power level. Here's a table listing all of them.

Male Female N/A
Banned Banned Banned
Normal user Normal user Normal user
Local moderator Local moderator Local moderator
Global moderator Global moderator Global moderator
Administrator Administrator Administrator
Owner Owner Owner

If a user has a color that isn't shown here, then that means that they were given special permission to use that color.

Are CSS post layouts allowed?

Yes, but make make sure that they follow the post layout rules listed below.

  • Do not put plain text in your post header.
  • Your signature MUST not be over 100 pixels (Don't use spoilers to get around this)
  • No flashy backgrounds or anything that makes text hard to read.
  • Try NOT to make your layout super laggy by going overboard with the CSS

  • Board Rules
    Upon registering on this board, you agree to follow these rules. You even have to check a checkbox saying you read this, so you will be help accountable for everything that you do here

    Use common sense

    This is probably the most important rule. Follow it, and you'll be fine

    Do not spam/troll/harass other users

    Do not Create multiple acounts

    A biggie. Each user is only allowed one account. Any user caught using multiple accounts will lose their secondary account, and depending on the situation, will also have their primary account banned.

    Do not bump topics.

    "Bumping" means to post in a thread marked as "Old," which moves it to the top of the thread list. In general, bumping is okay if the post contributes the topic at hand. However, bumping for no reason could possibly give lead to a ban. Just read though the thread carefully before posting.

    Proxies are not allowed.

    Proxies as often used to evade IP-bans and other malicious reasons. Any user caught using a proxy will be banned on sight and won't be unbanned until the user logs in with their regular IP and explains why they were using a proxy.

    Outside drama is not allowed

    Any form of drama that is brought in from another board will not be tolerated. Drama in general is a bad thing, so try to stay away from it

    This is an English speaking board

    If you don't speak English well enough for other users to understand, or don't speak it at all, then please use a translating website like Google Translate or something equivilent.
    Level Depo
    The level depo is a place to share levels to be played by the masses! However, there are rules and regulations that must be enforced to make sure the depo is a fun place for all.

    Don't upload others' levels

    Anyone caught uploading someone else's work will be banned from the depot on sight, no questions asked.

    No hiding evil things within files

    This includes and is not limited to: malware, spyware, crapware, adware, etc. Anyone found doing so will be banned from the depo along with being banned from the forum, as you are deemed very un-trustworthy.

    Accompany your upload with a nice description, image, and/or video

    Give a nice description of what your levle is about, or share an image of the level in-game, or maybe even show us a little gamplay of your levle. We'd love to see more of it than just a download link! (Note: BBCode tags will work in the level depot just like in any other post on the board)

    No troll levels

    Don't just make a level designed to hurt/kill the player. Those kinds of levels are generally unfun to play. Make something more creative instead
