Note: YOU NEED THE AUTHORIZATION OF THE MOD DEVELOPER TO TAKE CONTENT FROM ANY MOD. IT IS ILLEGAL TO TAKE THE CONTENT FROM A MOD WITHOUT SAID AUTHORIZATION.

Well, in my opinion, it would be pretty easy, but first you would have to get the permission from the people who made the mods you are going to take content from in the first place. Assuming that you have permission to take the content. You will need to transfer the files you want from the 1 Menu_client.zip 2 Objects_client.zip 3 Objects_server.zip.

then is the mod has anything in these folders, you will need to transfer that to. 1 Common_client.zip 2 Common_server.zip 3 Fonts_client 4 Menu_server.zip

And I think that's it.

I'm going to warn you one more time, taking or copying content from a mod that you don't have permission to take content from by the developer of that mod is illegal. SO DON'T DO IT! I will not be held responsible for any content that you took from a mod that you were not authorized to take.

Any other questions?

GenRommel you got the wrong game, and he doesnt need authorization if its a personal mod that will not be distributed, but its always more polite to ask. so basically either you can rip watever you need from that mod(the hard way), or you can just go into your init.con in the mods/(youmodnamehere) directory. For example this is from Desert Combat Final Extended Joint Arsenals

game.setCustomGameName "DCFX" game.addModPath Mods/DCFX/ game.addModPath Mods/DC_Extended/ game.addModPath Mods/DC_Final/ game.addModPath Mods/DesertCombat/

just put game.addModPath Mods/(watever mod you want aslong as you have it installed)/
