Correct AddOns List PLEASE !
« on: 12 Mar 2003, 02:51:39 »
Dear Authors, :'(

it should be OBVIOUS, but because we have an actual case: Please put the COMPLETE list of your AddOns used in the Readme File of your submission !
As i am doing a lot of reviews, often three or four parallely, i have quite a big collection of AddOns in my OFP AddOn Folder. Sometimes i clean up and delete all not needed, but i can and will not delete/move all AddOns from my OFP Folder before a Review just to check if your provided AddOn List is correct. (Even more difficult for campaigns; some missions run with AddOn some without). But because campaigns take some time to play thru, keeping the same AddOn enviroment is nearly impossible.    
So i can not check the need of AddOns for every mission alone for 100%.

I will downrate every mission with the "unknown AddOn Bug" by minus 5,until the problem is solved.

Greetings
Kuro

If you fail to list ALL addons AND where to get them, you have NOT met our requirements for submission.  Therefore your mission may be deleted WITHOUT notice.

Are you allowed to include small add-ons with the mission file?

What if the add-on has been updated in the meantime and it is not compatible with the mission anymore, do you still get downgraded for that?

Put it this way, I ain't putting an old addon on my PC that's been outdated.

Oh, and I recommend you do not include addons with the mission.

What addon are you talking about... editor upgrade?

No, I mean the Higgins landing craft and the artillery piece, I included them both in the zip for Hamburger Beach, if you want to have a look at it :)

I haven't done this for other missions though.

And unless we get MP reviewers they will stay there.

 :P

We have almost never had MP reviewers.  When we did, they do a couple then leave.

well, simple solution to editors....

before u export the mission to sp, then open up the mission folder and the mission.sqm - copy and paste the addons list (top of the file) into your readme - this way you cant go wrong - then find where they are from - easy peasy.

One MAJOR problem with doing this.

We require the name of the ADDON not the name of the UNITS used from the addon.

But, yes that list will help the AUTHOR track down what addons he/she has used.
