Eh, ideally IMHO there’ll be a mod folder you dump your mod .zip files and/or folders into, plus a text document that states which order the mods should be loaded in (see below). Making a shiny GUI to automate as much of that as possible seems like a small job for a programmer IMHO.
[quote]–Stonehearth Mod List
–Radiant & Stonehearth MUST be first!
–Your mods MUST start at #100 in case of DLC etc!
–Just give the .zip / folder name of your mod, no file extensions necessary.
–Mods at the bottom of the list overwrite ones higher up the list.
–Mods not listed here will not be loaded.
2=Dwarves.smod --Post-release KS goal
100=TelMod - Core v1.1 --Required for all TelMod mods, must be in list before them!
101=TelMod - Age of Sail v1.0
102=TelMod - Big Cities v1.4[/quote]
I’m more or less copying Relic Entertainment’s method of mod loading for Dawn of War here (though they had many more things to load than this ). I don’t know what @Tom or @sdee etc think, but I can’t think of an easier way to organise mods without minimising compatibility issues etc.
