The case: Many people (include myself) like SAMI better than IMG, or they can't use the IMG-tool (as I). Is it possible for you (the admins.) to "sort out" the files that can be installed with SAMI? Then, I don't need to go into each file to see what program I need to install it. This could be extremly helpful if you put the SAMI-files in a own category or something. I don't know if this is technical possible, but I'll be happy for answers from some admins. Thank you.

There are two main reasons why this would take far too long
1) There are at least a few thousand files on the site and most of these need img tool, do you really think that i have time to change all of these files manually?
2) Most of the files only come with the texture files which can be changed via IMG Tool V2 which isn't that hard to use.
As much as i would like to help out, its near impossible to change all of the files (well not impossible it would just take ages) and the site staff have lives as well. I myself have just finished my last exam for my degree and also have a full time job, if you would like help in using the IMG Tool please have a look at this document.
I appologise if any of this post sounds offensive in any way it is not intended to be, but i have to mention the facts.
Just some advice you could always search for the words "sami" :)
Thanks Danny, that could be helpful.
i'm afraid that i'm not an admin but i'm sure i can answer your questions. it would be possible but it would take alot of time to find out which files can be installed with SAMI. also, sometimes SAMI can install parts of a mod but not all of it, leading to another section for files that can be partly installed.
its most likely that it will not be happening due to how much time it would take to do this for all the files we have.
you might consider using an alternative to SAMI, GGMM. its half way between IMG tool and SAMI and can install ALL vehicle mods.
any other questions?
if you are really desperate not to use IMG tool, an alternative is GGMM, its much simpler and easier to use.

As I've already said to you, many of the files already on the site can infact use the SAMI tool to be installed.
Thanks for your response, all of you. You've answered my question :)
Ok I shall close this then.. Thanks all.
