Grow or plop

3 posts in this topic Last Reply

Hi all,

I recently decided to have a clear out of my plug-ins folder as it was becoming a bit overblown. Then I thought that I would completely rebuild it from scratch, with a plan in mind on how I'm going to organize all this custom content. I know people have many different ideas on how best to do this, and I am fairly happy with the system that I'm using.

Now, the thing is, I'm not a big fan of plopping. As generous and God-like leader, I prefer to let my flock decide what they want to build in the zones I have deemed them worthy of, (unless of course I'm not actually happy with what they've built, and I have to send the boys round with the bulldozers !).

So with this in mind, I decided to remove as many of the ploppable buildings as I could before putting the files in my plug-ins folder, thus not clogging up my menus with stuff I'm not gonna use. In some cases this is quite straight forward, when the name of the file might have "plop" or "LM" in it, but there are some that I can't work out.

So my question is, is there any surefire way of telling if a file is for a growable or ploppable lot. Bearing in mind that I don't really speak computer, I would need it explained in good old fashioned idiot language.
