Some Questions about Editor

Hi,
The editor seems included the path of engine Bin/Data, although I had set other path.
So some models can not added to the scene successfully if they have the same name.

Yes, it’s true that the editor never removes the builtin data dirs from the resource system (Bin/CoreData, Bin/Data) so if you have similar named resources in your own resource path it will conflict.

For now you can workaround this by cleaning up unnecessary or conflicting files from Bin/Data.

Then add you directory, set priority:

[quote]void AddPackageFile (PackageFile *package, unsigned int priority=PRIORITY_LAST)
Add a package file for loading resources from. Optional priority parameter which will control search order.
bool AddResourceDir (const String &pathName, unsigned int priority=PRIORITY_LAST)
Add a resource load directory. Optional priority parameter which will control search order. [/quote]

Sorry, did I misread the question.

Yes, the editor could be changed to do that, at the risk of “inverting” the problem; the user’s resources could override whatever the editor needs to load from its own data directory. However I don’t think that’s much of a problem, as it already loads at startup most of what it needs.

I am kind of thinking configuration is my next area of attack for the editor.
