Also I had one other question/idea that i think deserves some thought. It is probaly not in any of our hands but perhaps some vb programmer or someone will stumble across this post and catch the vision. I'm sure we are all familure with the windows registry editor that lets you import and export keys etc with ease. I think it would be a huge step for this modding community if a tool was developed that allowed mixing and matching mods and playing with ini settings from an easy to manage registry-like editor. For example I want to alter some aspect of legolas. I click on the hero tab and select his name and all settings pertaining to him are imported onto one page where i can change and then save and they will be saved to their respective files. The same with editing adding factions, a faction tab that lets me choose a faction and then import all settings onto one easy page or section that i can change and then save back. The advantage of a tool like this is that a modder or amateur would only have to deal with pictures, models and sounds. All the inis would be managed through one interface and thus less room for error. I think i will post this in the other forum as well, but i think such a tool would be extremely valuable to the modding community. You could even have it so you that you could save profiles from this tool that could be imported to your friends computers allowing eveyone to have the exact same settings so you could enjoy mutiplayer together. There could be different profiles for different mods you have tried and you could switch between them with ease and in effect uninstall or mix and match the best aspects of both.
