Already existing .lua files inside Script folder: should I overwrite them to install new mod ?

  • Alright, so I'm new to modding and I just downloaded the Rob-able Store Markers 1.1 Mod, and was suprised to find the same files that the mod is asking to put in the Script folder already existing! (I think those came up when installing the LUA Plugin thing)
    here's how it looks like: https://imgur.com/Xvg7wlj
    I already tried smth and messed it up a bit (but not that bad I believe)
    Thank you for the help and srry if I sound unbearably clueless at installing mods!

    Make individual backups of each file & you will be free to interchange them at will :thumbsup:
    Generally though, you are safe to overwrite '.dll' ('NativeUI.dll'/'NAudio.dll' etc) files in the 'scripts' folder. Probably just take the newest version of the file as a rule of thumb. Quite often they are identical (same creation date/file size etc).
    '.cfg'/settings/text etc files, if overwritten will default any settings they contain. Watch out for that :thumbsup:

    Tip: Get in the habit of making backups of EVERYTHING you edit. It will save your life sooner or later :thumbsup:
