Thanks for the reply, pickysaurus. Thinking about how the game reads loose files I thought that a folder called 'Data' holding esp and BSA files didn't look right, but I couldn't be certain, especially since I saw so many in that format.
If I can start afresh using the same mod title, I'll do that. I haven't deleted any of my personal files and I also copied and pasted all the text sections into a word document for ease of re-use.
After reading Reneer's post, I thought it would be a good idea for me to work back through the upload forms and take notes of areas that I felt were unclear to me or could be confusing for others, along with any hints or tips that could make the process easier (for me). I was then going to send that to your good self, or BigBizkit. My thoughts on this were that it would be better feedback... rather than me just moaning about a number of things.
As an engineer, I worked on designing process engineering plant from design, through manufacture and procurement up to commissioning and handover. Almost the worst person to produce the operating and maintenance manual would be me! It was always done by somebody else who liaised with me. The reason for this was that I knew every nut bolt, washer, conbtroller and valve and how they were all used. As such, it was all too easy for me to omit the 'obvious', which was not at all obvious to someone who'd never seen the thing before.
If I do this, I could give you a 'novice-eye' view of the process.
