Hi, juz a question..

ok, for example, if i wanted to use Wells FMs v 1.7 for the Corsair, then i can't use the Corsair rockets mod right? cos both make modifications to the f4u1a.dp file and i'd have to choose one. Am i right?

i find this to be a future problem / inflexibility. maybe sometime in the future, someone could come up with a "mega" mod consolidating all the good mods/changes.

cheers

The Wells stuff changes the .air file, mainly. The .dp file is just text, as well, so you can compare the "original" (after the Wells changes) to the one with rockets and simply copy N Paste the altered lines over into the first. Voila, you've merged both mods. If Wells doesn't change the .dp file at all (I think he does) you could just copy it over even more easily.
