do you have to create your own 'mods' folder?

I'd like to join in. I have a fair bit of MP experience (probably around 10 games or so), but most of it has been late age. I'd like to try Bandar Log, which is a nation I've never played and have been having trouble coming up with a strategy for. I think this will offset my experience somewhat.

If I'm too experienced for this game, I understand, but this sounds like exactly what I've been looking for to try Bandar with.

Groundworm, no problem at all, you're welcome to join.
If in the end you trample us all, then we'll talk again. Just kidding.

As for the mods;
The Streamers and Standards and the Community Sprite mods are graphics changes only. Therefore they are highly personal, but I've listed them here to make sure everyone known what I am using.
Also, Llamaserver likes to know which mods are to be used. I do *NOT* know however, if everyone has to run the SS and CP mods if I have selected them when creating a game.
Obviously Llamaserver asks to prevent cheating and streamline the gamesetup, but I am not quite sure how this will work for sprite-only mods.

The Streamers and Standards mod, however, makes the different logos and flags of the nations better distinguishable, I find.
The Community Sprite Upgrade mod enhances some sprites which were still of lower quality than most others. Nothing big, but nice enough.

As for installation;
You will find a 'mods' folder inside your Dom 3 folder. If its not there, make one.
The archives of most mods are all 'preconfigured' in the sense that you can normally unzip them into your mods folder and the files will be ok.
But just to check; all .dm files need to be in the root of the mods folder and all supporting mod files will be inside their folder inside the 'mods' folder.
Example: For CBM you will find the CBM1.92.dm file inside the root of the 'mods' folder, while all the supporting files are inside the CBM_Sprites folder in the 'mods' folder.

Hi.
I'd like to join as Abysia, Vanheim or Eriu.
I'm not a newish player so you could apply the mentioned restrictions.

All the 'heims' are considered powerful, are they not?

Hey there,

Please pull me out of the Ermor spot, as something in RL has come up and I won't be able to play.

Thx.

Oh that's unfortunate myrmidon.
I hope its nothing serious!
We'll be staging for a while longer I think, so if you want back in, you're welcome!

With some other games being wrapped up, I can propably start a new one too.
Having written a fairly well received guide on CBM Ulm in the wiki, I am not exactly new though.
As long as it isnt a water nation (I just hate those, especially on cradle), I am willing to give nearly anything a go in MA.
Considering DonPablo, of the three nations he is proposing MA Abys is imho the weakest due to its extremly limited magic abilities.
Eriu is actually quite strong imho, and Vanheim is imho middle of the pack.

Thanks for the input, Mightypeon. What nation would you suggest for yourself?
