This has been a long time coming, but this upcoming alpha will have the item browser hooked up!
Hale, the man behind the Foothold map, among other contributions, created all of the thumbs for each object, decal, and made a couple of hotspot icons as well. Almost everything we have included so far in the alpha should be accessible via the item browser now, but there is still more to come.
Sorry it took so long to hook this up to the alphas, but in Monday's alpha 36, map making will get much more user friendly!
Thanks again to Hale for the thumbs.
