Overview[edit | edit source]
The Metal Billboard lets players display a short message to other players. It is notably bigger than a Metal Sign. Edit the text as many times as needed with the use key (E, , ). To add a second line of text, use <br/>.
Construction[edit | edit source]
The Metal Billboard does not require a foundation for placement, and as such does not interfere with the spawning of natural resources. It does not snap to other structures. It is possible to carefully place two or more billboards side by side to use as larger display area. If noclipping is set in the server config, and they are carefully placed against a wall, the legs will be hidden inside the wall, just leaving the face of the billboard exposed.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Metal Billboard is treated as a metal structure and can only be damaged by explosives, the Tek Rifle, Tek Saddles, a Titanosaur, Arthropluera, Corrupted Creatures, Enraged Creatures, Titans, Bosses, or the DodoRex.
Painting and Color Regions[edit | edit source]
In addition to its preset paint regions, you can doodle on the Metal Billboard by "attacking" it with a Paintbrush, which will open the "Apply Paint" Menu. Then, click and drag your cursor over the 3D model (like a paintbrush) to draw anything you want. See Painting for more information on doodling.
Region 4 is not used
