For which extension you would like to be replaced?

You like the old *.cs or you want a new up to date extension? :lol: :lol: just joking!

I would say .ts, but I also don't see it as that necessary to change it all now, it works like it is, it would be too much of a change with no functional benefit.

In Torque 6 I switched the extensions to .tsc for Torque Script and .tsh for Torque Shader. So, that's where my votes at. One way or another I strongly believe .cs needs to change as it conflicts with C#.

Sure I would like to keep .cs but Microsoft pretty much railroaded it where everybody assumes it's a C# file. So we have to change it to something else. .tsc (TorqueScript Code) gets my vote. And could change .dso.cs to .tso for TorqueScript Object file. ;)

As for .ts is MPEG-2 transport stream for those of you who don't work with video or multimedia data on a daily basis. So it wouldn't work out trying to use that file extension.

Well, okay, since we're a small enough community that my vote literally counts (never experienced THAT sensation before) I feel obligated to inform the group that I have changed my mind after I voted. I went for the "aw, leave it alone, I don't want to change all my filenames and references when there's not a C# file within miles of my project" option, but if people feel it _must_ be changed then I'll align my vote with Andrew's options, .tsc & .tso.

The form allows you to cast your vote more than once so I wrote a bash script to vote for the choice I like best and I effectively ruined the poll :D

edit: he fixed it :x :lol:

If you leave it cs then at least Notepad++ thinks it C# and gives you nice colors. If you make it TS then every time you open a file ib NP++ you will have to manually set the language

That is a reason for some people, the problem is that, thinks it C#. (little off-topic: BTW you can use TorqueScript Editors and notepad++ will open automatically with TorqueScript highlight)

Check this old discussions: But now T3D is MIT, have the source, we have a good SC 8-) and Torsion is MIT (is a IDE, for the people who don't know it) so the community can considered again if really need to change and start a debate.

Just a reminder the version 4 will have big good changes and maybe it will not be compatible with old versions, in this v4 is a good opportunity to include this extension change.
