# 1 Is this a bug? (Import Button)
02-15-2013, 04:24 PM
The import button lets us do this:

The npcs run around in space firing photons.

Vice versa:

There are lots of cool things we can do with this.

But I don't want to use it, if it will be taken away. So, can a dev please chime in? Is it ok to use the import button this way?

Might work in preview, but will never work in published. You might even get an error when you go to publish. However, my guess it that this is not the intended functionality of the import button so it will probably change.

That's too bad. I have this awesome map planned out where you have to jump over hull breaches in your ship, and it would have been epic to have Tholian Battleships visible through the holes.

Still, thanks for the clarification.

I was curious about this, since it showed no errors prior to publish. Thanks for confirming that it does work.
