naming scheme (for modders)
« on: April 06, 2015, 09:48:50 am »
I was contemplating adding some new freighter type ships (e.g. Mark 2 versions of the endeavor and freighter) when it sort of dawned on me that someone very well may use the same file names/and or IDs.

Perhaps modders should be able to register for a naming scheme (3 or 4 alphanumeric characters that they use on their filenames and IDS) if I put an "ldt_ in front of all my file names and ids then it's less likely that it'll collide with another modder's.

I may start doing this going forward either way, but it something for other modders to think about.

I remember writing something like that on the wiki or somewhere else, that people should always prefix their IDs but can't find it :)
Oh, well.
