MOD Package Policy Changed

Post by wGEric » Mon Jan 24, 2005 10:53 pm

All MODs submitted from this point onward will need to have the complete MOD Template for any install files within the MOD Package. This includes Translations, add ons, and anything else that is extra to your MOD.

Along with this, add ons should go within a folder named 'contrib' in your MOD package and translations should go in a folder named 'translations'. This is to help separate and organize your MODs package. It is easier to find what you are looking for if it is organized.

good idea on the mod package change, one question:

would it be like:

PACKAGE FOLDER
- ROOT ( your mod's files )
- Translations
- contrib

or

PACKAGE FOLDER
- ROOT
-- Translations
-- contrib

first is right
root is a part of the mod
contrib and translation directories are for goodies
there is no reason to add them as a sub-directory :)

I have a question about this -- would a README.txt file belong in a contrib folder, a docs folder, or in the root folder?
