what with all the new modders starting to make their presence known.
I would like to propose a standard naming convention. rather simple really in the future all of my mod files will have as a prefix my initials. as an example the 40mm.ent would now be RR40mm.ent and so on. not only will this increase the number of names availible for use it will decrease the likelyhood of duplication of names. it should help identify the author of a mod.

you know what would be cool? if you can have a program that changes the name of a file and hunts down all references to the file and changes it there, too. You can do a slow version by doing a "search for text containing" in windows. Swish?

UE32 can do find and replace like that in multiple documents. so can many HTML editors. theres a few text editors like Xfind that i think can do it as well
