Today we’ve removed the Gaming category and replaced it with ‘Weapons & Military’. As you previously had models in the Gaming category, these might be left without a category so please review them and carefully consider which category your model belongs to.
Half a year ago, we redesigned our categories system to make it easier to find content that you love. Since then we’ve closely followed your feedback and learned two things: the ‘Gaming’ category is confusing and you really miss the ‘Weapons’ category.
The problem with Gaming is that it’s an ‘use case’ (like 3D printing or high-end rendering) rather than a topic - any subject matter can be suitable for gaming. As a result, all types of models that really belonged in other categories ended up there.
At the same time the Gaming category became the default place to store any models to do with weapons and military. Many of you made it clear to us that these models really need a place of their own.
We suggest using the tag “gameready” to identify content you’ve specifically prepared for use in games to aid search.
If you have any questions about this change, please post them on this forum topic.
