The modding support on Mac and Linux just got a compatibility fix in the upcoming 1.07 patch. Mainly a file loading error was fixed with relation to the names_file mission parameter. While fixing that issue I tested through the a number of mods and noticed a few issues with some of them. So here are a few guidelines to follow
- Use uncompressed DDS textures
[list]Currently the Mac and Linux ports do not support compressed textures so the Austria mod currently is missing some icons.
[*]Ensure the .zip has the data and Mod directory at the root. The Austria mod puts these in an Austria sub-directory.
- A future mac+linux patch will support reading mods directly from the zip to simplify installation
