[READ] Ingame mod updates menu cluttered with unzipped mods

Post by timmiej93 » Thu Nov 16, 2017 12:15 pm

- PC/Mac/PS4/XB1: PC (1.5.1.0 b1580)
- Vehicle/Tool/Model/Object: N/A
- Issue: When you have unzipped mods in your mods folder, they appear in the ingame mods update window, even when they aren't even on ModHub. I've seen this issue discussed on the Discord server, but couldn't find a topic about it, so I figured I'd make one.
- Single- or Multiplayer: N/A
- Steps to reproduce: Have an unzipped mod in your mods folder, open the update window in the mods menu ingame.
- Does it happen on a standard map without mods yes/no: N/A

I've also reported this in the german bug-reports section: viewtopic.php?f=934&t=119174

Glad to see that somebody else confirmed that this is a general issue.

I completely forgot that you did, lol. I even quoted that topic in discord and still forgot, I must be getting old.

I've got the exact same issues, sometimes all unzipped mods show as needing an update, sometimes only some, and sometimes none.

Why would you unzip a mod? Shouldn't they all be zipped?

Personally, for one sole reason: Editing them. Especially for mods that are in development, it's a hassle to keep zipping and unzipping, and since I don't play MP with them, they're fine being unzipped. Leaving an edited version of an existing mod unzipped also reminds me that I have made edits to it, so I can't just update it.
Between editing existing mods, and creating my own mods, I've got about 60 unzipped mods in my mods folder.

I'm not sure if it still applies, but in fs15, saved games would load quicker if the map mod was unzipped in the mods folder. I haven't tried this in 17 as they load pretty quickly anyway.

This will not be changed for now - we talked to our devs and it's a won't fix for us, I'm afraid.
