3: Your description is formatted so that it's fairly easy to read, but is still a little cluttered.

4: Your description is formatted well.

5: Your description has excellent formatting making it very easy to read and understand. Thank you.

Default Screenshots|1| Illustrative Image
1: There are no images attached to the post. We know it can be difficult to capture something useful in-game for many game mods, but we do require -some- sort of illustrative image for the mod to appear on the downloads pages.


3: The attached picture is appropriate for the downloads page, though some in game screenshots would be great too.

4: The attached picture is appropriate for the downloads page and there are in game screenshots as well. Thank you.

5: The thumbnail is appropriate for the downloads page and the picture(s) showing your mod in action is great. You can easily tell what the mod does from the picture(s) you've set up. Thank you.

Default Screenshots|2|Show everything
1:The screenshots do not show enough of what you have made. If you are using all the same textures in different colours, you can do one full-size picture of one colour, and smaller swatches of the rest. If you're using all different textures, you must show full-size pictures of everything.

5:Your screenshots are a good preview of everything you've made. Thanks!
