Wounded_Lion Posted October 25, 2006 Share Posted October 25, 2006 In general, my current practice is to overwrite a file if I am changing it in such a way that other modders' changes to that same file would almost surely conflict with my own. I patch a file if multiple modders should be able to make additions and changes without conflict. So... Let's say I want to edit a certain small area to restructure a particular quest. The area is used soley for this specific quest. Few (if any) mods add anything to this area. If I were to patch/append the revised quest to the area, dialogue, and script files, any existing mod additions (creatures, interjections, etc) would likely not 'mesh' (they wouldn't make sense because the quest is in some ways different now). So I should overwrite the area, dialogue, and script files, right? I welcome your thoughts and advice. I am undecided as to which way to proceed... So... you have a chance to sway me to good or evil here. - D EDIT: Grammar Link to comment
