      But, you can just run the 7daystodie.exe file directly from the folder the mod is installed on.

        Unfortunately, the mod's main file is remotely stored, allowing me to roll out new mods.

        Which mod were you looking for in particular to show up off line?

          Starvation with the big backpack. After looking at the big backpack mod i think i might be able to just install it differently and run straight from the exe. Its in the temp mod folder now so it doesnt work

            If you are looking for Starvation, you can download copy the contents of this into an XML file, and go to the Mod Launcher and click on Open File. This will add a new entry in the mod launcher when you are offline:

            <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
            <Servers>
            <ServerGroup Name="StarvationMod" Logo="">
            <Server Name="StarvationMod16" Logo=""/>
            </ServerGroup>
            </Servers>

            It won't do much, but will show you an entry

              Awesome, thank you for this and for the launcher itself. It has made modding much easier for inept people such as myself

                You are quite welcome. I'm glad it's working for you (mostly.. anyway)

                  Good day Sphereii

                  Have a question .. Will you or can you put WOW 5.2 and Tin "Dying Lands" together in the launcher OR is there a way that I can combine the 2 of them as One using the launcher.

                  Or would you not recommend doing that because of updates and fixes. Just wondering and it is no big deal if you feel it should not be done.

                  Have a great weekend and hope you are doing well .. Thank you

                    They are both full mods, so it probably wouldn't work well. You may be able to grab Tin's mixer files and merge them into WoW, but then it'll break the special prefab spawnings, and possibly throw off loot balances.

                      That's what I thought .. thank you .. just wanted to confirm it.

                        Since mods that use the same xml's conflict with one another, then it's safe to say that mods that don't touch the same xml's don't conflict. Since your launcher seems to know what it's grabbing anyway (yes, this is the big presumption, I know), maybe you could add a feature that does, say, if you click on valmod, the other mods that would be compatible in the list turn blue or something?

                        Click on valmod, and Compo and Dying Lands goes blue indicating it's compatible, and of course when you click Dying Lands then Compo goes back to regular because it's not compatible with Dying Lands.

                          It's an interesting idea. For the UI overhaul, I was going to be looking at providing options to selecting optional modlets to a play. Rather than having CompoPack backed into a valmod config, it'd be able to detect there was no rwgmixer file in valmod, and show Compopack as being optional. Same as the zombie retexturing.

                          It's challenging with other files, since things like blocks, items, and recipes are closely linked.

                            You'll have to educate people on the differences between mods and modlets.

                            ...if you applied the same method * does in the sdx launcher, you could read say, valmods blocks.xml, pull the non vanilla ones into a #temp1, then do the same for WotW, pull HIS non vanilla ones into #temp2, then create a new blocks.xml out of the free blocks from the temp tables.

                            The neat part would be making sure the block id's are the same for that configuration. Well, since it pushes from the server, you might could not care about that... Hm.

                              using one of my first mods I did, I could allow the XMLs to be read as actual XML, allowing us to use the XML import functionality. I wouldn't need to modify the XMLs themselves, but just link them together

                              Sounds like a lot could go wrong too.

                                OH Boy .. I have a headache ...... Good day Sphereii

                                Sound like a lot of work ... but a Great ideal .. if you could make it work

                                Click on simple tab called "Combining Mods" .. shows up Green if they should work together with no issue ... Yellow for a maybe minimum issue .. AND .. RED for "Don't even Try"

                                But we already know modding a game in any form can cause issues and not taken lightly.

                                OH mi .. my head hurts and it is Brain storming time .. Hoping you can do it .. But Enjoy the weekend now and Have Fun.
