Organizing Multiplayer Levels: Folder Structure
« on: June 02, 2024, 05:39:59 PM »
Lix 0.10.23 will release today, and for this release, I'll move some multiplayer levels around, as follows.

For each player count (2p, 3p, ..., 8p), I've looked for authors who have built only a single level for that player count. This produced single-level folders. For Lix 0.10.23, I'll merge the levels from single-level folders into a new folder other/ under that player count.

Example: Yung has built only a single 2-player level, teamattack.txt, and I've moved it from 2p/yung/ to 2p/other/.

I wasn't sure if we should also merge two-level authors or even three-level authors into other/. I haven't done it for now; I've only merged the one-level authors at each player count. You're not stuck one way or another; if you build more levels, I'll move you back into your own folder. :lix-smile:

I'm not sure if sorting by author is useful. It's merely the obvious method, similar to how we sort singleplayer levels into level packs, which typically have one author. See also the 2019 topic: Organizing Multiplayer Levels: Tag System.

I think just one level per author moving to /other is good enough in cleaning up the multiplayer folders, I think moving 2 or 3 level authors would result in too much in the /other folders and then it would be more cluttered.
