Default How much counts as significant change when uploading a mod?
See, I've never really had rules to abide by or standards to live up to since I hoard my mods all to myself. Recently, though, I've started using this forum more and I wanna try my hand at giving back, but I don't know how much change qualifies as significant, especially since the mod itself is pretty simple.

There's a mesh/decorative object in World Adventures of a scroll and parchment, but they're not available in buy mode, even under buydebug. I've seen mods on here that give access to hidden objects like this, but... I don't know how to do that. I just straight up clone the objects with S3OC and run them through TSRW to add extra tweaks.

In the case for my "Worldly Scrolls," I added two texture variants: one to make it a blank parchment, and another with a cool chinese dragon and text ripped from a men's toilet sign I found through google images. But adding textures doesn't seem like it'd count for a significant change, and it's not like it took me a long time to do.

... I do think they look pretty cool, though ;P

I think they'll give you the benefit of the doubt; it's just a minor item but it wasn't available at all beforehand. I wasn't even aware it existed, personally. That, plus the fact that you made it more usable should be enough to get it approved.

Hypocrisy is only okay if I do it.

I believe generally you can't offer items cloned from store or EP objects. You may want to ask this question directly to the MTS staff on Create>Creator Forums>Creator Issues. Good luck!

Assuming it's unmodified, of course. And it's also possible to configure objects to only show up if the user has the original installed.

That is what I was thinking/wondering also. I tried to download a redo of the pets register once and it would not install. Forgot I did not have the EA one in my game at the time. Put the EA one in and then it would install.

You wouldn't happen to know where I could learn to do that? Tutorial video/previous thread/etc? It sounds like what I'm looking for!
