Hm, I see. It would be nice to have it on both places. As a player u look often to minimap anyway so, it was good around there. For spectators its good in the top panel to have an overview and when players have sight they can tell friends if they have idle units. :D

Regarding the BoonGUI mod:

Hey,
I'm a total noob with computers (or at least compared to many on this forum).
I'm having a hard time figuring out how to extract the zip file and put it in the /0ad/mods/ folder which i cant find either...
Can any one upload it to the the in-game mod database so it can be downloaded directly from there?
Thanks?
Chesnutter

 

P.s. thanks for working on it!!

I'm guessing your path is C:\Users\Chesnutter\Documents\My Games\0ad\mods

See if you can open that directory in your windows file manager, go to your download folder and do a right click on the BoonGUI zip; it should give you the option to extract.

hey @Gurken Khan
I'm using ubuntu...
I might be too noob too understand you =/ I can barely use the terminal.
Here you can see I have a mod folder in the 0ad folder (that i created and labaled)....
In the mod folder is the boonGui zip file that I downloaded. I've tried unzipping it there and it extracts, cool, but nothing changes in the mod settings once I open up the 0ad game application...

does this help you help me?

Chesnutter. I have been trying to work all this stuff out too.

home/snap/0ad/592/.local/share/0ad/mods/user

From the folder you are showing in the picture go to ..
592
check that nautilus is set to "show hidden folders"
then go to .local/share/0ad
and you will see the mods folder
in there will be a folder titled user

When you download a mod from the game it puts it in /home/snap/0ad/592/.local/share/0ad/mods

I think you just drop the .zip in a folder for the mod there and put the mod.json file from inside the .zip, extracted, next to the .zip

So, /home/snap/0ad/592/.local/share/0ad/mods/"name of mod"/
and that folder containing "name of mod".zip and mod.json

Some mods work for me that way, I have had trouble.

I was wrong. Just tested it but trying to help you helped me.  Here, from start ....

Download .zip and check that you "show hidden folders" in file manager

Right click .zip
Extract to...
/home/snap/0ad/592/.local/share/0ad/mods
restart 0ad
look in "mod selection" under "settings"

@Chesnutter 

The path you're looking for is

~/snap/0ad/current/.local/share/0ad/

You can copy and paste into the address bar of Files. (ctrl + L to manually insert address)

If this path doesn't exist, firing up the game should create it.

Once there, create a folder named mods (if it doesn't exists), copy your zip there, and right click > extract files.

You should end up with a structure like this:

1206253017_2022-12-2913-42-50.thumb.png.25402d4b4ccbbdf6bcb3ce0ebd730c50.png

Note that this boonGUI.zip is the one inside the zip you extracted.

(by the way, snap's "current" folder is always linked to the latest version)

I ran that in that in the terminal. it opened a new 0ad application... i dont think thats what you meant...?

Otherwise i'm not sure what you mean by "gui based file-manager"? 
i googled that and things like Nautilus came up. Does the standard ubuntu OS have default one that im currently using or do I need to download one if I havent yet?

Again, i'm a total noob at this.

thanks for your help.

P.s. Would it not be simple(r) for someone to upload it to the mod menu list in the game? and also it would make it available for others as well I guess.

It should open the mod menu with the mod already installed and selected, click save and restart and you are good to go

 

Edit: @Chesnutter, yes, nautilus is one of many file-managers, and likely the one you use.

Ah, I thought it was obvious to replace 'path/to/someMod.zip' to with the actual path. My bad for assuming something to be obvious that is not.

Let's say its in Downloads and is called boonGUI.zip then it be

0ad ~/Downloads/boonGUI.zip

Hint: use tab completion whenever possible

 

As said before, right click and "open with 0ad" in file manger will work in all likelihood too if a terminal is to foreign, but you won't see any errors then and it will be a lot harder to figure out what goes wrong if it goes wrong.

It brought up the other 0ad pyrogenesis app. And then there was a red line top right in the menu screen saying that it couldnt find boonGui folder. 

I'm basically the average computer user compared to most of you here i think haha

Do you have spaces or special chars in your folders ? If so it will not work on linux. Instead you can put it in a folder without such characters and drag and drop

I'm sorry, I don't understand what you mean. I didn't put any extra spaces or characters in my (0ad) folders...?
I'm also not sure which folder to put it in. Right now its in several folders and still not working.

Is it not worth the effort to upload this mod to the game mods menu for others as well? It seems a lot better than autociv which is currently available =S

It's alright it seems not. 

/home/maxmeniolle/

Doesn't contain any special chars like "éàè " etc.

It's up to @Langbart I opened an issue on their Github for it but it was closed for inactivity https://github.com/LangLangBart/boonGUI/issues/194

I downloaded the boonGUI.zip and discovered it's a zip containing the boonGUI.zip which is the actual mod :P

So either unzip what you downloaded once or repeat the steps using the *.pyromod download.
