Continuing work on the Deadlands update...

Here's a question for everyone. Should I keep all of the additional material as separate sources? I'm referring to: The Flood, A Rock and a Hard Place, Last Sons, and the Smith & Robards catalog. Or should I just source them all as Deadlands, so you don't have to select all of the additional sources to activate them all the time? I can value to either way, but I want to know how the community feels about it.

I think they should be separate, but grouped together, sources. That provides the most flexibility for the user, if it's needed, particularly for groups who may not have some of the extra source books.

Separate files I thinks makes more sense, that way the changes are only where they need to be

I'm not talking about files, I'm talking about the source tags.

Well source tags for sure, I guess I would make separate files. The main reason to separate the changes...if they are all in the same file there is a chance of changes for one source tag screw up the other source tags. But that but that is my opinion

I suppose that could be a possibility, but when all is said and done it's an official file anyway so you'll have one primary data file author doing any updates and they should be pretty familiar with the layout. It's going to be easier to implement it as a single file in the updater as well rather than 3 or 4 separate files that folks would have to download, update, and keep track of rather than the single setting file with separate sources for the various supplements.

It will be one .user file. Having separate files wouldn't have any effect on source tag issues. They all compile together.
