Thanks for the report.

External services are known to occasionally drop out or throw errors. As far as I'm aware, there's been no recent site updates or on-site changes to the logins.

Can anyone confirm this is still an issue 3 days later?  And if so, are there any specific error codes?

Not sure if its related, I use facebook logins on my site and while I don't use JFBConnect software the company did put out a blog  about how a Facebook change is causing login problems for users


I made the recommended changes in my facebook developer account and I assuming as the last few people to login over at CB used facebook logins to do so, that it solved the problem.

    Thanks for that info. It sounds very promising as the likely culprit. If Facebook have upgraded their systems, it makes sense how the old method may no longer function. Especially given how backwards compatibility tends to be a low priority nowadays (mainly for security reasons).

    Since social logins are a core feature in the the ST software, it's likely IPS (the devs) are aware of this and already working on a fix. Or if not, we'll be sure to notify them of this.

    This isn't a solution, however:

    If you'd like, it's possible to merge your previous account with this current one. Doing so would transfer all the posts & rep, reassigning them to your new profile.

    Bear in mind this process is irreversible, and @ghosty20 would be deleted. Though it may be possible to change @Bloggo to use that display name. The only visible difference would then be the registration date and the user ID number.

    Rest assured, we will explore a fix to the Facebook issue, but just wanted to throw this out there as an option. *;)

        I really love this asset, but the broken overlapping orange flickering texture under the walls just drives me crazy. Anybody else?

        Think it would be hard to fix? I'm a bit intimidated by all of the custom animations on the bears and stuff. Would all of that stuff still be there if you tried to export the asset and reimport it with template props reload button ticked?

        Hi everyone, 
        Continuing on from recent discussions, we think it'd be helpful to start collecting evidence about issues with STEX files.
        Such as:
        Broken formatting  [Example]. Errors when downloading files  (e.g. 3D161/G - File not found). Corrupted archives  (e.g. broken ZIPs). Invalid or missing dependency links  (e.g. [Old]  >>  [New]). Missing descriptions / screenshots. Irregular download counts (more downloads than views). Any other abnormality, or function not working as intended.
        So if you discover any of the above, please reply below with this info. The more examples of evidence we collect, the easier it'll be to determine patterns. Afterwards, it can be used for further investigation, in attempt to find solutions once and for all.
        Supporting details such as screenshots, abnormalities in the HTML, or error codes are also welcome.
        The following posts will form index lists.

        Regarding a STEX overhaul, we've got to begin somewhere. I believe focussing on the more serious shortcomings makes sense as a starting point. Once these are hopefully addressed, it'll become a much clearer picture. Looking ahead, it may then lead onto more ambitious projects including the previously mentioned tagging, and the ideas which @rsc204 and @Tarkus discussed (e.g. here and here), amongst others. We're in this together as a community, and continuing on, any input or assistance would be welcome.
        Some files are not in a good shape, much like old property that needs a little TLC. Just like an architect, although it's a fact of life, people never intended their creations to reach a state of disrepair. As a result, being fair to authors past and present, it's time to commence action for the benefit of the whole community going forward.
        So now we get to censure ourselves? So what happens when a whole ton of Democrat folks flag an article for fake news because it was from a Republican source or vice versa? Or Tories supporters flag an article from Labour sources? Or SJW vs Alt-Right? And will Facebook be truly neutral in in "fake news" flagging reports or will it bias itself to SJW/liberal tendencies?
        Part of freedom of speech is sifting through the bull without censuring everyone whom you think is being disingenuous or just plain wrong. That's how people learn to think, and argue, and reason!

        Am so upset. Just installed SC4 after many days for a quick play through but now I find that the ST Exchange download button is broken.
        Any idea how to download now?
        I need the RCI Multi Mod and PEGPROD Garbage Chute Mod...
        Can anyone give me an alternate download link?
