I’ve finished my auto-installer, which you can include with your mods, and will automatically send all the files to the right place. It has the added advantage that it can add sliders and situations without you needing to overwrite the sliders and situations files.
I’ve now withdrawn the auto-installer, because I wanted to shove it off my server, and because I had a few reports of problems with it. If you would like it, please drop me an E-mail at tom (at) thomashughes.co.uk
Basically, to use it, you include the installer with your mod (place it and all the files you want installing in the same folder), and also include a file called “install.txt” with instructions to the installer. Instructions on how to make this file are included in the download above. It’s not that hard once you’ve read all the instructions, but I hope to make (after Christmas) a program that will create the file for you to make it even easier. I may also make a version that uses a csv file as the install instructions file to make it consistent with the rest of Democracy.
I hope that you don’t have any problems with it, but please tell me if you do and I’ll try to help/get them fixed. There are a number of extra features in the installer - for example, it backs up the situations and sliders files before updating them so that if something goes wrong in the installation (you have forgotton to include a file, or there is a typo in the installer instructions file, for example), the saved versions of these files can be restored.
My auto-installer is now provided with all my mods, so just download any of those if you want an example of how to do the install.txt file.
