requesting additional search button
my eyes cant handle a small monitor up close anymore so i have my pc hooked up to a 43 inch tv up on the wall. only problem is just on this site i cant use the search button. So i have to browse on my phone and bookmark to find mods its kind of as hassle. I can scroll to the side on the page just not the top bar. It may be alot to ask but could yall maybe just add an additional search button to the left of the upload button? It would be greatly appreciated
@scarredface1017 If you're looking for mods, using a search engine is much more effective than the search option on this site.
There are dozens of times when I couldn't find a mod here, but I could easily find it on Google.
It's partly the site's fault and it's also the way tags and descriptions are handled. Google is much more flexible and forgiving.
Want the best example. Using the site search, enter gameconfig.xml. You will get quite a few hits. Good?
Nope? There is one gameconfig with over 4 million downloads missing. Why? Because it's gameconfig and not gameconfig.xml
Now try looking for the file above in the tool sections, with all the other gameconfigs, and guess what? You won't find it despite 4 million downloads because for some reason it's in the misc section.
Now do the same search with google and you will find it. Another problem is car names, once more Google allows much greater flexibility in your search terms.
Google or Duck Duck go or Bing or that new one, search engine is your best bet.
@JohnFromGWN While i appreciate the response, it only works if im searching one specific mod. And i cant adjust the in site tags and filters unless i have access to the search icon so sadly problem only half solved.
@scarredface1017 If your TV is relatively new, you'll have many options to change what you see. However if it's a SmartTV with an old web browser, you're pretty much screwed or you get an android box that can be updated. This site, from my experience, is no longer updated from a functionality standpoint. That's why, as an example, the forums can't be searched directly.
@JohnFromGWN wanted to come back and coommend u for ur help. I used google to find an old mod that the author took off the site for some reason. I found it in a time a few years ago i was not actively modding at all then when i get back cant find it. Guess its on this liberty city site which has some other cool stuff i havent seen. Thanks again! This is the mod https://libertycity.net/files/gta-5/125079-sbornik-futbolok-dlja-franklina-v-stile.html
@scarredface1017 Glad it helped.
