I just have a few important announcements to make regarding various areas of the site.

File Categories

You will notice when you are submitting files that the structure of the site is a bit different. With the release of Clear Sky things had to be rearranged so make sure you READ CAREFULLY what category your are selecting for your mod. I've had a lot of singleplayer mods be set under the singleplayer maps category simply because the submitter didn't read the list carefully enough.

The Clear Sky file structure is like this:

The new Shadow of Chernobyl structure is like this:

You will notice that the old structure is still there, PLEASE DO NOT USE THEM. I am in the process of moving all the files into the new categories (Clear Sky and Shadow of Chernobyl respectively) but this is a long process since I must move each file individually. There are over 1000+ files that need to be moved. Once this is done these old categories will be removed and everything will be found under either "Clear Sky" or "Shadow of Chernobyl".

Readmes/Descriptions:

When you submit a file to us you MUST FILL OUT the readme section. This is a REQUIRED STEP. I know that some files don't really require a readme with installation instructions (such as fan music or wallpapers) so just put something in there like "Made by...". It is best if you include installation instructions if your file requires them. Not everyone knows how to install the mods and edit the fsgame.ltx file.

Please try to follow these simple steps so we can get the site running nice and smooth.

If you have any questions please email me or post them in the comments below.
