Just double click on the download, it is semi-automatic.

Thanks for the heads-up.

Post's updated - a few notes:
- Now a mod can be assumed to be released unless otherwise stated.
- I haven't added new (unreleased) mods right now (there are currently two around iirc) .. not sure if I'll do or only released mods are included.
- Skins and textures now only includes links to other topics which are collections of skins. For specific skins, it's linked to chema's great topic.
- Next think to do is a rework of the General part to include only worthy topics. The overall goal is to reduce the total number of links in order to enhance ease of use.

This will take quite a while though, due to real life stuff I don't have much time ..

I think unreleased mods should be included. Especially since most of the larger ones are unreleased right now for obvious reasons, their threads are still useful for discussion, ideas etc.

Is there any idiots guide to adding these mods to RD? I have downloaded several mods and my PC (running Windows 8.1) downloads them but even after pasting them in the RD folder they have no effect?

I'd love to see some of these mods in my games, please help.

Tell me what you need help with, and I will try my best. Can you be specific on what mods you are downloading?

Shifu, maybe a 1-sentence description for each mod/tool for those who are looking for the first time. IDK, just an idea.

@Darkmil: Thanks, though it's only a minor contribution compared to what the community (especially the modders) achieved.

@Mikeboy: I tend to agree with you on unreleased Mods. I'll change that asap. I went through the last pages twice now, I still feel like I missed one, but I'm not sure .. else, it should be up-to-date again.

@ram70: "Steel King" 's arleady added, bit hidden though: "[Balance modification] Steel kings" (below 2.)

@alanthornton1978: Hello and welcome here! You just got a living guide with The WAB Noob ;)

@WAB Noob: I like your signature :lol:
Well, some basic information couldn't hurt - as long as it's short and meaningful. Not sure if tags would be better than a short one-liner, like "[realism]" or "[balance]" to indicate what the mod changes or aims at.

Update:
- Added Steamgroups (including a short description) - if the author of one of those groups wants the description to be changed, I don't mind. I'm not sure if the links should be to some topic or directly to the respective steamgroup.
- Unreleased mods are included again, even if not released yet.
- Started with reworking the "1. General" part.
