    Also, you can stroke your ego and make your content a pain in the butt to steal by putting your handle in every file you make! If you have to manually open up all of the dozens or hundreds or thousands of files and change the reference to 'avelonsBigDScript' I bet you won't steal my mod. :cool:

    Naming conventions: possibly the first commandment of modding. Thanks for posting!

    Yeah something I wish I realised with my first mod. I hope no one makes any item called beatrixlegs

    Definitely something to take note of that new modders often miss.

    I tend to make everything bk3k_something. But an abbreviation of the mod name would do just as nicely. Once you name things, you can't re-name them without breaking what people already have. So I have a few things that don't follow this convention. It really is better to do so from the start.
