Combining several mods if difficult to almost impossible. Intergrating ships, systems, ect. Then you have the Effects file to intergrate, and some will not work as the use the same file, though slightly altered. It was sujested before, but found to not work. <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> Michael Please read the <A href=´http://www.lancersreactor.org/t/forum/faq.asp´ Target=_Blank>FAQ</a> before posting.

oh right, I thought as most of the image file references were stored in the ini files that it would be possible to rename the image files and change the references for all ships that need it so that It does not conflict with a different MOD. Theory is no match for experience, thank you for the reply.

There is another MAJOR problem with combining mods. space (And I´m not speaking about &quot;Outer Space.&quot<img src=smilies/icon_smile_wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> There are only so many places to put systems before you run out. Each base, that sells ships, can only sell 3. Each object, in each system takes space, and there´s only so much of it. And... Not to mention... You need the space on your hard drive to put it all. My &quot;Privateer: The Reckoning&quot; mod is 22mb zipped, but it´s 50mb unzipped. (That´s 50mb in the FLMM directory, and 50mb in the Freelancer directory, once it´s activated.) I´ve seen several mods that are 32mb-70mb zipped. Combining the best would make a mod around 1gb in the FLMM, and 1gb in the Freelancer directories. Besides... There currently are mods which combine ships/weapons from several games and movies available. And not every mod is enjoyable to every player. I´ve had rave reviews of my Equalizer mods... And equally nasty reviews of them as well. Watch your 6!

I´m just thinking to myself... &quot;and what would they do with TC efforts...&quot; lol. Seriously speaking, not all of us are adding things to the original game- many of us are making whole new games here... that just wouldn´t fit in with some giant compilation (even it was possible to do so). Dozens of mods re-use the same entries over and over again, too... there must be at least 50 custom versions of the Liberty Justice, the Starflier, and other things that almost every modder has started with. So, while the idea sounds neat on the face of it, a &quot;Mod of Mods&quot; is probably not technically achievable, nor would it be much fun.

Also, if you put too much into a mod, it will scare people away. I haven´t played any of those 100+ new ships and 200+ new weps and 50+ new systems mods ever because I just don´t have the time to explore several times the amount of stuff than in the original game. <img src=smilies/icon_smile_wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>
