Which way is better?
I'm currently making a sound mod where I restore some unused engine sounds in the game files, but I'm stumped on how I should have the mod.
Should I have it as a replace for the whole "game.dat151.rel" file or make a dlcpack for it?
If having it as a dlcpack is the best choice, can someone link me a forum or tutorial to making one?
If you're building it just for your game, you could edit the original game.dat151.rel, but the best method overall would likely be to create an addon.

The third tut is all you should need, but '.rel' editing can take a little time to get your head around, so I included the more basic tuts as well.
If you need to, use them to familiarise yourself with how the '.rel' files work & are connected etc .
