    Download with ModDrop feature - what do you think?

    For anyone who's tried the "Download with ModDrop" features (on the mod download page), what are your thoughts?

    Re: Download with ModDrop feature - what do you think?

    Hi Mr. K! Like I was telling Webb the client handles mod browsing and downloading/installing very well; it's very slick in that regard. Tried uploading then info-editing one of my mods earlier and that was smooth too; well done!

    Some early ideas/questions...

    - Is there a way to "claim" your mod, if it was batch-uploaded during the initial seeding of your dbase?

    - will you link with, or somehow continue, the "Mod Comments Thread" feature RGF is/was using (where users could post about the mod and authors could answer)?

    Thanks again!

    I'm certain that Kreisher or the technician (whose username I don't remember can help you with that process. Send him a PM with your details for now!

    As for the comments threads, I think it's still working on the site side of things, so you can always post here. I believe the TL1 mods should still be linked with their original threads, and the old links all redirect to the new locations now.

    Re: Download with ModDrop feature - what do you think?

    @Phanjam We are currently working on a system that will allow you to "Link" your RGF account to your ModDrop account so that you'll have access to all your mods in the client. We expect this feature to launch this later this week.

    As for the comment threads, we plan to copy everything over at some point and allow everyone to continue the conversation in the client. That feature is still several weeks out though. We also plan to add a review system and image / video gallery for mods at some point.

    It's nice if this will be automatic, but I'm not averse to doing it manually. For me anyway this is one thing that will put me more at ease.

    Hmm, heading the same direction as the Steam client then? Okay but I hope you keep the weight down :P

    Also, assuming what modders can do inside the client is going to be limited, maybe you can retain these forums as the "community place" where freer interaction can take place, and then just link to that stuff from within the client... just a thought...

    Completely agree. We're not trying to remove the site's core functionality, only augment it.

    Reviews would be a really great feature, the "thumbs up/down" is actually adequate / it just needs to be more... prominent?

    Totally agree. Reviews have been on our todo list for a long time. It might be a good idea to find some way to expose our roadmap items so the community can let us know which features they want to see most. I'm going to look into that this weekend.

    Re: Download with ModDrop feature - what do you think?

    Hi @Kreisher . I meant to start this in the Bugs sub-forum but I still can;t start new threads on my own in these ModDrop boards.

    Anyways, I tried downloading doudley's Warbounds mod for TL2 but ran into trouble.

    I tried DLing from the mod's RGF page using the the yellow "Download with ModDrop" button. I had to fire up the client 'cos it wasn't up yet, so I did that then took care of some other stuff. When I got back to it after about 10 minutes, nothing seemed to have happened and ModDrop didn't have any messages for me either.

    Since the client was up I tried DLing from there. But searching for the mod brought up nothing. So I go back to the RGF mod page and try to DL from there again. This time the message "getting download" just stayed on screen for like almost 5 mins. Then the progress bar flashed on and showed some progress for about 3 seconds, then stopped. No message or anything.

    I checked my TL2 mods folder but the mod wasn't there. So I try a third DL again from the RGF mod page. After another almost 5 mins of "getting download" it finally ended in a "unknown error" message.

    I think it needs some verbose messages about what you should/can do if the mod you're after isn't in the ModDrop db yet. Also needs more informative error messages.
