So normaly the files that I download from FileFront are in a .rar archive, but several of the files that I am attempting to download from the for STL are not being recognized. One file in specific is the Ultamate Universe mod allong with several others. I normaly stick to just moding my bridge commander game but wanted to give it a try for STL, SOme help would be appriciated. Thanks in advance.
UU is a self install mod. You run the exe file and direct it to the Legacy install and it will install itself.
Any file that ends in .exe are all self installers. All the major mods (UU, AM, TB, TLG, OEM and others) are all self installers.
The files that are in .rar or .zip are the files you have to install yourself. The creators of those files should have them already set up in folder form. Its as simple as unpacking the rar/zip, selecting all the files at once, find the Legacy install you want to put the mod into and paste them all in. Most mods can be installed directly from the main directory where Legacy's exe is kept but you will come across the odd one or two where you will need to go further into Legacy's folder structure.
Installing mods for Legacy is really simple. Its straight forward. Want many mods and you can have multiple installs to play with all the mods. Just copy your stock Legacy install to somewhere else or rename the stock install folder and do a repair install and you get a new install of Legacy
