...That would be a lot of meticulous work for the index thread I never caught up on, but it's only less than 90 scenarios, IIRC, and I'll put that in the mental rolodex to get to for my next bored-for-a-project-and-manic spell unless someone beats me to it.  Tedious work, but totally doable given time and will - for a valuable content asset we host, value added...

Your thing with the auto-sorting would be great - sounds like something a business database-type program would sort with ease once someone took the time to enter what information was with each scenario.  You'd know better than I how easy or hard something like that would be to code; it would require not-many fields apiece for this.

I think most of it should be automatable.

Can tell if it's modded or not if the download is more than just a scenario, player count will be in the scenario file somewhere. Difficulty I can't predict. Author might be scrapable from the posts, but a good default would just be to set Darsnan as author for everything and fix the few wrong'uns.

He gave author if he could find out - site of original post, always, a lot of the kind of things you're looking for - one of us will have to look at a few threads to get a better idea, and I don't know how hard he tried for information while he was searching and processing so many...

Added to my todo list for after I finish the revised mod manager.

As an extra attribute, it might be good to support ratings or something? I dunno.

...That last would require either the compiler doing a lot of playtesting of a LOT of scenarios and publishing a personal snap judgment, or just as unlikely, alas, a lot of audience feedback...

I was imagining putting a button in the manager to rate or recommend a mod or something, but yeah, audience is probably too small.

Put the button in anyway - not a lot of lines of code, is it?  You never know...

(I think have the rating line only appear if there's a 'recommend'.  "One user recommends this" -or more- is not nothing, but "0 users recommend this" could end up being self-reinforcing.)
