Double Sided Signs With Different Text And Double Textured Panels

Create some double sided signs, like sign4.rwx but be able to write different text on each side. You would need a new argument in the Description Box to break up the 2 sides, for example: Welcome! | Come Back Soon! which would be in the Description Box and Welcome! would go on one side and Come Back Soon! would go on the other side. Without a | it could just put text on one side. This would sure help people like me that when 2 signs are close to each other, they bleed through with my video card. It would also reduce the amount of objects used in 1 space. Oh, I guess this command can also be used in the Action box to put 2 different textures on 1 wall or floor panel. For example: create texture stone3 | create texture wood33. With this, you can put it on a roof and it would show wood on top of the house and stone on the ceiling of the house, which is the same panel object.

The double sign i dont think is a great idea, but the double texture IS!!!! The problem about building is, your texture is going to show up on both sides, so you can do 1 of 2 things.
a. Deal with it or
b. use 2 walls (which can be very wide or bleed)

So its no fun to have a drywall texture on your outside, and no fun to have a brick wall in your house. So The double texture is an A++++ idea!!!

Reply to signs - I think the sign format is good the way it is... However, this can be done if the modeller makes the sign 2 sided in a program such as AccuTrans 3D.

Reply to textures - This would be a interesting concept but, can also be done via a program.

So, in my opinion the texture idea would be cool if it was implemented... but, I really don't see a need for the sign part. Thanks =]

I do use 2 signs, but sometimes they bleed through if they are too close together.
