1 link to a webpage listing the links to the downloads and forum threads. Much like it was here but on a webpage instead. I just wish one of the IV guys would get back to me with a "sure you can" email... then it'll be up in a flash.

you know I don't see why IV would object... I mean its just another fan page and they won't mind that. However I would like a list here too, it just makes it so much easier going to the modlist and downloading something rather than going to a webpage.

Unless of course this page will have new features? such as vote in how good a mod is, A download counter, maybe order mods by how they're rated and then by number of downloads

Well maybe their policy is "no comment". "don't bring it to our attention and we'll let you get away with it.".

So i'm going to put the page up and will remove it if requested.

I think their policy is a simple program:

Code: Select all

if action = pirating then
      Get community to flame site until it goes away
else
program new game
end if

a thread for the autobattle mod:

http://forums.introversion.co.uk/darwin ... autobattle

and one for the deserts:

http://forums.introversion.co.uk/darwin ... 8&start=30

could there also be a link to mods websites (a yellow darwinian?)

Forum threads don't tend to disappear or change and if i'm hosting the files then i know whats going on with them. So these links i can be sure won't fail.

If i add a yellow darwinian and link to a load of external sites then i'm prone to having dead links all over the page and it'll create more maintenance. I don't want that, and i don't want to have to keep checks on them all either.

The links to individual mod pages are still at the bottom. Place your links in your forum threads and readmes too and they'll be seen.

I've added those 2 links but the autobattle one is rather tenuous. Its like listing my modlist thread for one of the games just because its mentioned in it.

Theres 1 empty column in the site layout for when i have ratings all done if i ever get round to finally playing the last few mods. Theres not gonna be user ratings, download stats or anything else. Its a simple 1 stop modlist.

Looks good. One small suggestion: use a bit of CSS leetness to change the color of the links at the bottom of the page. The blue links don't show up very well agains the background.

bigmod link is at bottom. bigmod mods have links to the threads. your threads should have links to your site. and your readme should too. isn't that enough to get people there ??

i'm not adding a 3rd link to each mod anyway. so ner !

would it be possible to have on your website a little thing so that when you hover over the name of a mod it givs a little description from the author.

Why? There are links to the pertinent threads... If you want a page that does that, why don't you stop complaining about hitm4n's, which is only supposed to be a list, and make your own damn page?
