Is it me or am i the only person who gets annoyed when a file is posted - WITH NO SCREENSHOT - on Armada II - how long does it take to put the ship into map editor (or in-game) and press "Print Scrn" and then save it as a jpg? Doesn't take two minutes! It is really annoying when i have to download a file to see what it actually is - sometimes there good.. other times they are well crap and it has been a waste of time be downloading it.

Although I can see this as being a "minor" inconvienience, it exictes me to see what there could be. if it's good, I keep it, if it's bad, so what, just delete it, it's what i do ;)

It is very annoying. In fact, they tell you not to include images in the zip too, but I like to see the pics to see if it's a waist of time. Whiping it up in storm 3d just doesn't do things justice. And even if the image is like 1600 by 1200, with jpg compression, it's only a few dozen K. I know what you mean though, some files have nither. :bawl:

Firstly, we ask on the file submission page that you take the screenshots yourself. Quite frankly the process takes long enough without us having to take a screenshot for you. Your the author. You test it. You can quickly ""Print Scrn" and then save it as a jpg" and then dictate how you want the visitors to see your ship yourself anyway. Seccondly, we do ask there attached OUTSIDE the zip, to make the zip smaller. But in the zip is fine if you cant make more then one attachment (cant see why not)

Beyond no image how about terse instructions for install? That sucks for less than experts. And sometimes the description of what the hell the mod does is vague. groucho_youbetyourlife.jpg

True, however again i'm more concerned about install instructions. If they're not clear enough well...the only way I've managed to install some ships is by having installed so amny others, I know how to do everything...
