    is there way to group/split my models inside 1 resource? like i have variations for every model, but instead of adding for example 2x more models, i could create groups like

    Variation1
    |__Model1.mdx
    |__Model2.mdx
    Variation2
    |_Model1-alt.mdx
    |_Model2-alt.mdx
    And the user could download only folder with Variation1 or Variation2 instead of everything
    right now it looks like that
    MyResource
    |__Model1.mdx
    |__Model1-alt.mdx
    |__Model2.mdx
    |__Model2-alt.mdx
    i can give you example of bloating by using my resource as example
    item models it has noglow variation

    This could be useful.

    Something like this could be useful to avoid duplicate textures too. Curious to see how the new hive handles this.

    New Hive is mostly to reproduce existing functionality in XenForo 2. So don't expect wonders. I am hoping to make the folder structure smarter at some point, but it won't be better upon release.

    I like the idea. Folders could be useful. But first we might want to create less folders :p.

    Somewhat related to this, it might be nice to be able to associate screenshots with particular items in a bundle. Would make search results (when not displayed as bundles) better if we see the correct screenshot for a certain item.

    Do remember that bundles are meant to contain very few things that are deeply related. Bundles are mostly not packs. Packs are that.
