can you make a mod without the Index.ini, if so then sure sounds good

Really though, ini only makes it more accessible to newer modders

Modify some script in base.rte (like human ai) to include and run a script file with your mod for you, easy peasy :P
Bonus points for making that script make an rte and ini files for your mod too (if those directory permissions are still allowed).

Maybe a little longer? If I'm to enter I'll just bash it out on a day when I'm free, so a wider timeframe means I'm more likely to enter.

Time frame of a month?

Could also open it to the steam community.

Hell, I'd be up for throwing in a prize if there's enough interest, winner gets any steam game under [to be determined] USD.

Post Re: The Lounge
Since this contest will involve a prize with actual monetary value, we should probably figure out how exactly we want this done.

-Forum submissions will be a must - However, if we wish to inform the Steam community of the contest, they'd have to make accounts, so ideally we would give them enough time for them to make an account and get over any account creation hitches.

-How will we handle winners? If we keep the contest contained in the forums and not advertise it to the Steam community, the number of entries should be small and we can do the forum polls as normal. However, if we get a significant number of entries with the inclusion of the Steam community, we'll need a fair method of determining the winner, as well as preventing the polls being voted on by alt accounts.

-Time frame: I feel like a month is a large enough amount of time, but if it isn't, feel free to speak up.

-Previously created content: I think we would want to restrict the usage of previously created content, but of course there would be no way to enforce this. It would have to be up to the judgement of [whoever's in charge of the content, which happens to be me], and might just end up as "Be nice, try to play fair".

-Contest entry limitations: Restrict number of (buyable) items (can't be a faction)?

If there's anything else that needs discussion, feel free to bring it up.

What do you mean "can't be a faction" ? Can you elaborate?
Are we allowed to make actors still?
And where will the official post of this contest be located on the forum?
Edit: March 31st 9 PM (Your time zone) sounds like a good time to end it.

Still up for discussion, but "can't be a faction" means it can't be an actor + some guns and whatnot. Limiting the amount of content you can put in the entry.

Everything else is up for discussion. The official announcement will be in the forums, if we decide to open it to the Steam community/tell them about it, I'll make a topic over there too.

That'd actually be pretty cool. Can't mod myself but would be cool to see.
