Hello PMC!


The following is a members only desktop feature at this time.

Today, we're launching advanced filters for all major content sections to give you more control over what you're looking for and want to see. It's completely optional to use them, stick with our traditional drop down filters or toggle back and forth depending on what you're looking for.

Here's a screenshot of the advanced filter panel for data packs!




Advanced filters

New filters are available on Desktop for all major sections including Maps, Skins, Texture Packs, Data Packs, etc. For the most part, they mirror our traditional drop down options, except they give greater level visibility and control, multiple category selection, range sliders for stats and the ability to save them as your defaults or share them with others. They are not available on mobile until we refine the usability for small screens.

Choose Advanced Filters or Basic

You choose whether to use advanced filters or legacy drop downs and the site will remember your preference.
Look for this button on all major sections to toggle the advanced filters.


Custom Default Content Homepages!

You can save settings as your default homepage for each section!
You might exclude categories you're not interested in seeing, select an alternative sort method than our default "updated" or maybe set the source to show only content from your subscriptions!
Note: Keywords are not saved for defaults.


Personalized Content Sources

My Subscriptions, My Diamonds, My Favorites, My Submissions only appear when there is relevant content.
Example: if you didn't diamond any skins, you won't see My Diamonds on the skin section. This will reduce clutter for us and in particular new members since they won't see any source options until they begin interacting with the community & its content.

Changing the source will dynamically update the range sliders based on the content within the source. If your personal range sliders seem incorrect or prevent you from narrowing content in a meaningful way, let us know.



Range sliders for Diamonds, Favorites & Downloads

Sliders are optimized for usability. When you see a + after the max value, it means there is content greater than the maximum selection. This is because nearly every section has content that is wildly more popular than the majority. Trying to select a range between 0 and 100k is a lot easier than 0 to 2.5m. If your maximum value is the max value then your results will include content above the maximum selected.


Multi-checkbox enhancements

Select or deselect one or more check boxes. You can click the top option to toggle them all on or off. You can click and drag through check boxes to select or deselect multiple at a time.



Custom settings are shareable via URL

Have particularly interesting results, you can share them with other members. Visitors are unable to load them at this time. Keep in mind if your source is set to a personal selection such as "My Diamonds", others will not see your results, they'll see their results with your settings. For that reason, it's probably best to stick to sharing settings for "All Submissions".

What do you think?!

Share all feedback, suggestions and interesting use cases in this thread. Submit bug reports via tickets where it's easier to track them.

This is a great start! I saw you were looking at adding excludable filters which is nice. Maybe a way to search not just my diamonds, but maybe all packs that my friends have diamond as well, that could be interesting! For time scale, it feels like that should also be a more controllable parameter, akin to the sliders for diamonds, etc!

Very helpful and lot for a start
but we could need something more:
- Like excluding tags, that could hide the unneded works, by the filter as a setting
- ability to add own filters that you can enable without wasting time on choosing the options(max. 5 or depends on you)

Yeah, I will think about how to exclude & probably should also have include tags without cluttering the panel too much.

Yep, it was on my list of possible filters. I need to think about how to add excluding/including tags without cluttering the panel too much as well as how to handle & display that in the title. Might have to limit the # of tags to 3 - 5. I won't know until I start testing to see what works.
