I think this will suit us fine for a long period, but if we get to a more advanced stage with more mods, we can add parameters for defining type of mod, controlling ownership of mod (if we maintain an online download center for mods), using a revision number to track whether it's been changed, other dependencies (other mods), etc.

In this case, i think the main block is useless. And it is technically not a problem cause we will not using the default parser (cause mods are not yet loaded). Or at least it should be an anonymous block. Bayo 16:32, 8 May 2012 (SAST)
Sorry, but I don't understand what you mean by "main block". --H-hour 16:45, 8 May 2012 (SAST)
I mean this part "mod mymod {", and this part "}" are useless. Bayo 16:50, 8 May 2012 (SAST)
Ahh ok, it can be removed. I simply built it this way to mimic our .ufo formatting, but if it's not needed that is just as good. --H-hour 17:46, 8 May 2012 (SAST)
