Ok. I always thought it was strange that FSMM was never used for what it was named for.
I've been thinking about Freespace campaign managers in general lately, and something's been bugging me--
Assuming that it's a Good Thing that when you install a campaign, *only* the campaign files should be present in the FS2 install directory (plus the FS2 core files)... what would be the best way to deal with people who create their own missions based on an installed campaign?
Hmm, I didn't explain that very well. Let's say somebody uses their theoretical ideal campaign manager to install The Babylon Project. Some Guy writes a few TBP missions of his own. Later, he tells his campaign manager to install Warzone. As it goes to clean out all traces of TBP before it installs Warzone, what should the campaign manager do with the user-created TBP missions?
Yeah, the campaign manager could just leave the missions directory alone and let stuff pile up, but that's... ugly. Goes against the whole idea behind a campaign manager, which is to keep FS2's directories neat and consistent so the campaigns always run right.
ZylonBane's opinions do not represent those of the management.
