easy modding handeling

Post by boeljoet » Wed Oct 19, 2016 12:57 pm

i think this will probaly take a lot but hear me out:

mods will only be loaded in when a map is opened, not at start of the game

1: on singel player a list with all installed mods so you can turn them on and of (and a button to get more mods)
2: when laoding a game it will start up all mods automaticly, mods that are not installed wil be instaled automatic (if you have internet)
3: when joining a mltiplayer the join button: install all mods and join game

when an option is given the menu closes and starts the game with all mods and conecting directly to the world

3 set of mods:
server based mods
clients side based mods (like new graphics or layout,should be checkbox alowed or not)
and both

only server based mods will be downloaded, clientside mods should be optional for the server admin unles forced upon.

i like playing factorio, but when is tart the server intending to meet new people i must play vanilla. the chance of me having exacly the same mods as someone else is very small.

You may read the linked post in that article you linked: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=34415
It explains, why it isn't that easy.
