Good.
Now does somebody want to explain step by step what you do when you have your modding done and you want to create a zip.Don't assume that people know already.I have never used Entegrity before and I'm sure others are the same.I want everyone to feel comfortable doing it and not to be confused.
If you still don't know anything about modding ask Vlad for a copy of his tutorial or maybe somebody would be kind enough to host it(I deleted mine or I would)
Mods are due a week from this Sudnay..roughly.

ENTegrety is very easy to use.

When you open it, it looks for the Addons/entities/weapons folder.

Select the weapon ent file that you want to ENTegrefy and click Open. It does the rest. It will start chasing down all the related files, sounds and art that go with your weapon. It will show images of your bmp's and it will play your sounds as it reads them in the ent files.

If you mispelled something or have an ent error it will let you know when it finished scanning. Keep fixing the errors until it says zero errors. Yellow warnings are ok you technically don't have to fix yellow warning messages, just the red text errors.

If all is well at the end it will ask if you want to zip the file. It zips it and puts the correct directory structure in the zip.

It about that easy.

PS You need Winzip installed, too.

And also... it usually tells you what needs to be fixed when it finishes scanning.

I've never used Entegrity so let me ask a question about it:

Can you use it to change the Type (and all links to the Type) of every entity in a mod? I have a mod that I want to modify for a level centerpeice but its huge (about 20 files) and I don't want to go through and change each one seperately. If Entegrity can do it, so much the better. And yes, I have the author's permission to use the mod . And I don't want to change override the actual weapon if someone also has that on the same mod package.

"HUGE-20 Files or so", chuckle. sorry, found that amusing(specially after chasing down an error in a mod that had close to 100 ents). you can set ENTegrety to clean as you go... haven't tried that so don't know how well it works(doubt thats what you're looking for though)

Well...actually its not 20 ent - I was just giving a rough guess. Its actually 58 entities of which 18 are Projectiles and over 20 are spewers.

So to make a summary for some of you guys that are slow to catch on You are to make at least one mod.Whether it be weapons,tanks,maps,music...ect.That mod can simply be a modification of something that is stock and in the TM directory already.Thats what I plan to do since I'm not a hardcore modder.For those of you that don't have the slightest idea how to start just email Vlad and ask for a copy of his tutorial.You'll get the basics of modding in a few minutes.
You are to create a new name for this mod and to put you name in with the mod name so people can know who did it just by looking.
Once I get everyones' submissions I'll make one big zip of it and hopefully someone will host it.Should be pretty cool.I know some of you guys have good imiginations and it will be cool to see what you come up with.
Right now my email is down and the techies can't figure out whats up.If its not up in the next couple of days I'll just give everyone my username and pass for the FTP I use and you can just upload.For right now just hold on to them and hopefully my email will be back up soon.

Well if you would like Supe' you can send me the zips and I will make sure they are ENTegrefied and post them. I am going to end up posting them anyway in the Weapons by Author Area and the Tanks Area.

I can even make a "Community Mod Pack" Page with single downloads by author and a link to the full pack.

And at the bottom of the page a download for the full pack when it is complete.

So far I have:
Rex's (Guided Missile, Camaro Tank)

On the way Kev..

Oh come on people...don't tell me only a few people took this seriously.After we keep reminding you guys and gave you tons of time to do anything.Names will be on the mods so EVERYBODY will now who did what and who did nothing.
The good thing is there isn't some deadline so its not too late.We can leave it open for a little while longer.****Modding a stock weapon is easy people and only takes a few minutes****.
If you don't know anything about modding email me and I'll send you Vlad's modding tutorial.Its basic modding and only takes 10 minutes to go through the tutorial,which has examples and you actually get to modify the plasma cannon in the tutorial.Email me if you need the tutorial...or Vlad.
