Display addon type in addon download interface

Post by sjl »

It seems to me that there are several types of addon available from the 'campaign' server. For example, there are campaigns, unit packs, eras, multiplayer campaigns, multiplayer scenarios etc.

By adding an [addon_type] tag to the PBL file for each addon, and displaying this in a column in the addon download interface (or whatever it's called), players looking for a specific type of addon would be able to find what they wanted without either browsing the forum, or downloading the addon.

Would this be possible?

Yes, it's planned.

I'm locking this since this has already been proposed in about a dozen other threads.
