Re: Freespace 2 SCP Folder Map Guide
Looks good so far. A little more complicated than what I would have done but I'm sure they'll be useful.

If you ever make some for 3.6.9 Official I'll have to see if I can borrow them for the FAQ.
Karajorma's Freespace FAQ. It's almost like asking me yourself.

Re: Freespace 2 SCP Folder Map Guide
The first picture is way too crowded.  Perhaps you should remove the lines and just use color-coded dots.

Otherwise, good work. :yes:

Re: Freespace 2 SCP Folder Map Guide
If I may suggest, rather than drawing a straight line directly from every file, draw a line going directly right from the filename until they are all at the some position on X-axis, and then draw a single vertical line up. Do that for each colour, moving the vertical line slightly across, and it would make it a lot easier on the eye. I'll try an do a quick example and post it..

Re: Freespace 2 SCP Folder Map Guide
Double post, but something more like this would probably be clearer...



I know the description isn't 100% accurate by the way, but it was more about the way the lines were done than anything else ;)

Re: Freespace 2 SCP Folder Map Guide
Now, when you would order the files by type you would have even clearer picture, VP files being in one nice bunch, executables in other and so on... :nervous:
There are three things that last forever: Abort, Retry, Fail - and the greatest of these is Fail.

Re: Freespace 2 SCP Folder Map Guide
:lol: Yeah, I thought of that too later, it's just that if you are looking for where one particular file should go, it may be easier for the searcher to have them Alphabetical even though it's harder on the person making the table ;)

Edit : Besides, it looks cooler :p

Oh, if you've got MS Visio handy, you can do what Flipside did really, really easy.
