    Renaming a mod manually is way too long and error prone. Yet, people seem to do it anyway!

    Even though my script is nothing fancy, I'm confident it can help the modding community by removing redundancy in the process of creating a mod.

    Enjoy! :)



    If you don't feel like watching the video, you can download the script here:

    It works with a simple installation of Python.

    notepad++ has this feature if you press CTRL F and go to the replace in files tab

    Notepad++ is the most powerful tool you can have its a wonderful bit of software and its well worth it also GIMP photo editing software as well dont forget that for those pesky DDS files that require editing when required too...

    My two programs that I use for peeking into files are:
    Notepad++ - For the code and details behind the cars
    GIMP editor - for looking at DDS files

    It's actually Ctrl + H : Find and Replace. Select a string of characters and choose how to replace them,
    replace, replace next or replace all and if you messed up simply ctrl + z out of it ! :D

    To my knowledge, the Find and Replace operation needs to be repeated for every file. Also, I'm not sure if Notepad++ can batch rename files and folders.

    It seems to give an error when I try to use it.


    P.S How did you do those mods at the end?

    Is it WinError something? If so, it seems to be a permission problem between Python and Windows, I haven't found a solution but it seemed to rarely happen. The quickest fix I found was to copy paste the folder and apply the modifications on the new folder.

    About the mods at the end, I mostly modified existing dae files using Blender. This tutorial to make static objects by Nadeox1 might interest you
