    The R&D (Research and Development) DLC allows players to access the R&D Test Chamber. Inside this chamber is a complete sandbox and early access to in-development blocks. It also gives you special access on these forums. If you are confused about how to get R&D forum access , the ability to use the 2 unreadable forums by default, and receive your Beta Deluxe banner, follow these steps and read the ground info to get yourself access.

    First, some ground information:
    ~You do not get this by default. It must be activated
    ~The process is done manually by the Community Manager, Matt
    ~It may take only a few minutes to gain access, or as much as 3 days. 1 day is the average
    ~Errors can occur, be wary if something doesn't seem right

    Here are the steps that you must follow in order to gain R&D forum access:
    ~Purchase the R&D DLC over Steam or otherwise
    ~Run the game
    ~Push the "Register for forum access" button in the pause menu
    ~Enter the email you used for registration on these forums
    ~Saiwun will receive the request and give you forum access

    If all of the steps are followed, have patience and you will be rewarded. Have fun in the Test Chamber!

    Any particular reason you can't sticky it? Are you still on trial? Or do moderators not have enough power to sticky threads?

    Do you mind if I replace your original post with what I've been telling each person who asks it?

    I'll sticky the thread if it's formalized.

    There's no trial for mods - you should all have the same powers.

    I just flicked a switch which says all mods can now sticky posts. @NovaLegion let me know if that works now.

    It's been formalized. Now all it needs is a sticky.

    I own the R&D content, and I've requested access via the game, but still do not have forum access. How do I go about getting that remedied? Thanks, ThunderDuck

    How long ago did you request access? That's vital information.

    Go to Saiwun's profile, and post a comment so he's notified. That should raise awareness for your issue. Then re-register.

    No problem. People keep on asking, so when the Newbies board popped up I took advantage of the situation.

    Thread Update: Ramblings got unlocked, so the # of unreadable forums listed was incorrect. Changed from 3 to 2.
