Hi

 

I was installing the MoE mod and happened to notice I've got 1.3GB of stuff in res_mods and I can't remember what it is for. There seems to be a file for each type of bush and tree, each map, and each tank. I deleted it all and everything works fine. Just curious what it was. Anyone know?

Thank you, but that doesn't answer my question.

The res_mods folder is used for game modifications that you downloaded, ie:- XVM, skins, crosshairs, etc.

With every update, when you install new mods, make sure to delete the old version folders from inside "mods" and "res_mods". So now for example you should only have 1.6.0.0 (and other mod folders, i am only referring to folders named based on the version of the client).

 

You have probably accumulated mods throughout time and never cleaned or reinstalled the game.

 

Hope this helps
