Focusing on on that first tab. Is anything missing, not working, doing odd things? think of that first tab as a completely finished program. Anything I need to take care of?

What I want to do is get that locked down real tight, and then i'm going to release a "Stable" version of DAModder that will be only updated occasionally as new features are solid enough. So the Stable version will be posted on Nexus/DAMods, and the Beta here. As new features are added and tested, once they are solid they will move to the Stable version.

So, on this first tab, what do I need to fix?

    The only thing i could think of at the moment would be to maybe add a "security question" before uninstalling Official content to prevent accidential uninstalls by the user, altough they can be restored with a backup so i dont know if its necessary.

    And besides that the suggestion with the Mod-Icon, but as i said thats not really necessary, most mods dont have one anyway.

    I think its very solid now, i still want to make test runs with Beta 1.9.6, but i doubt there will be any new issues.

    In software development it isn't the new issues that get you, its the regression issues. When a new version breaks something that was working before. That is why for more stable releases it is important to not be releasing a lot of new versions.

    I miss ability to switch localization. I'm playing English version of the game on a Russian Windows installation, so I'm sort of used to English titles and some Russian equivalents look really weird. Russian localization actually spoils Shale's sex right in the DLC title and description, so I'm glad I didn't play in Russian right from the start.

    Though it's fine for me, there might be a different case when people do have English Windows Installation, but actually play game in their native language.

    Thanks for the comment. I was debating when I added the auto-localization if I should enable a way to manually set it, and it sounds like I should.
