The "type of file" section when uploading a file does not include "3D Model". Why!? I'll just put "Icon" for now and let it be changed later. Obsessive Mario Fan (talk) 17:58, April 29, 2019 (EDT)

We rarely get 3D model uploads, so there was no need to create it. The idea of that wizard is to make it easier to upload and categorize images, so having a lot of fields hurts that purpose. There are other types of files we don't really have a type for either, like gifs. Anyway, tagging it as a screenshot works for all intents and purposes. — {EspyoT} 16:43, April 30, 2019 (EDT)
Got it. Now that I think about it, tagging it as artwork might work better. If not, then as a screenshot. Obsessive Mario Fan (talk) 20:55, April 30, 2019 (EDT)
Well, artwork is a piece of promotional art created by the devs for the sake of advertising the game or showing it off in publications. Or it's concept art of things in development. A model render is more similar to a screenshot, since it shows what you see in-game (maybe a bit cleaner). And it is really a screenshot, of a modelling program. — {EspyoT} 08:34, May 1, 2019 (EDT)
