View Full Version : How about a Modding Tools forum?

The Taris Upper City Emporium is a great idea for a forum, especially considering the the recent changes to pcgamemods.com. It also makes Holowan Laboratories seem more like a general work-in-progress or modding classroom type of forum (and makes the forum name more pertinent). But now that we've delineated between Released Mods and General Modding Discussion, what about Released Modding Tools. If I was visiting these forums for the first time and saw one place for finished mods and another place for discussion, I'd wonder "Where do I find the modding tools?" or better yet "Where do I find the most recent release of modding tools?"

I'd suggest the addition of another forum in the Editing section for Modding Tools updates and releases. Sure there aren't many developers out there, but I'd argue the latest versions of the tools should be easy to find for the community and a forum would the be the best way to display them publicly. :)

That's an idea: we will look at it :)

I agree. It's a category that can stand on its own, and would make it easier for folks to track down what they're looking for.

The Kotor Tool thread, for example, often contains an mixture of tool suggestions, questions, and more. This makes it hard to keep a clear line of thought, much less find what you're looking for. I think the same applies here.

(Now that I think of, perhaps I should start my own Kotor Tool forum somplace, just to make *that* easier, heh heh!)

Well any suggestions on the structure and form of an eventual tools forum are welcomed. If this is to be done, my main idea would be to add a forum somilar to the Taris Upper City Emporium. We also have the ability to create subforums for different authors however I wouldn't want to make navigation too heavy.

Once the new forum is up, you can start a new one, TOK.

Thank You tk102 for being one of the reason why we can actually have these threads!
No Tools = No modding happiness and joy for us all ;) hehehe...

Tool-Makers such as yourself have my (and I'm sure all of the others') deepest respect and gratitude :worship:

@Chainz. I agree 100%, without these tools we would live in a dark world of gaming :D not be able to mod would be un-thinkable...

@tk102 and other tool-makers. Thanks a million for the time and effort you put into making these tools and making our (the modders) life a little easier and making modding more enjoyable.
