Post Mod Uploader System
Hey boys and girls,

I was just contemplating a new project to pick up: Would anyone be interested in a GarrysMod.org-style uploader?

You have an account, then you upload a file, attach screenshots, add a description, etc.

Something like this: http://garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=17957

Would anyone be interested in moving to a system like that?

Not so sure I get it. How does this benefit anyways?

Keeps all the mods in one place. Each person can have their mods attributed to them. Probably an easier searching method than going through the whole forums. Sounds like a great idea.

If it's on a different system it would take some load off the forums, and old mods wouldn't need to be deleted... But being able to comment on newly released mods is a very big (and indispensable) plus, so it would be preferable to have both.

This shouldn't be that hard to do with PHP and MySQL :P.

Maybe even merge it with a Mod Downloader program :P.

I think it would be cooler to have a mod downloader program, such as in the Falling Sand games. You could start CC, check the mod database, see something you like, download and install it, and then in the menu, reload the RTE files so your new mod(s) would take effect.

You mean like in Wxsand.

Personally, I never used the feature in the game. But, then again, I never download user created mods if they're something I can do myself.

But, the problem with the Wxsand Download from Wiki feature is that it relies on very precise formatting, and, we'd need a wiki to do it.

Something where people can create topics, and random people can't ♥♥♥♥ them up. So just downloading off the forum wouldn't work.

You just setup a Database structure and then so will people Upload to the database. (Preferably through PHP)

It would not be so hard to do if someone put some effort in it :P.

Example MySQL Datastructure:
dbname: cortexcommand

Table: mods
id
mod_name
mod_size
mod_path


Table: users
id
name
password (md5 hash)

I know how I want to do it.

All I'm doing is asking if people would use it so I'm not wasting my time.

I'm not sure, I think it might reduce the active forum members a bit...

Really? People want to hear if the Mods are good :P. They must check the forums for that anyway :P.

Dam dont ditract me too look at Gmod mods again.

Although I like the idea and would use it if I ever made a mod, I expect a good number of people would just use the forum for laziness or formatting.

How in the ♥♥♥♥ do you not know how to spell damn?

Back on topic, I would use it, but it would be a bit awkward. CC modding has slowed down, it seems, since B14 was released.
