Installation instructioins etc for addons and mods

  • I know most creators provide instructions etc on the download page however few include these in a text file with the download. I understand that I could just take a screenprint of the download page, (which I do already) but it would be most convenient if a text file could be included. No big issue here just a suggestion. :)

  • Some developers already do that - either a text, or more likely, a .pdf. Most don't, because they use the standard installation, or rely on you using an addon manager.

  • I've always included a "Read me" for anything and everything I've ever uploaded since FS-95. Basically, instructions on how to install it and use it. And if need be, what edits that you may need to make for whatever I've uploaded. I do this to make it easier for everyone from noobs to experienced people that download and install stuff. I see no reason to make it a hard task for people to download and install something that I've, or someone else has developed. It's not good, and some will shy away from that upload or modder.
