    The identifier in the path makes it unique and therefore not a shadow of an existing file.

    So for my personal, locally kept mods, there is no formatting requirement for the subfolders within the "client_mods" folder?
    Just that each local mod needs its own unique folder?

    Just realised you mean the containing folder. I've updated the examples to match.

    Should the value of "author" be contained within the value of "identifier"?

    For instance, at https://wiki.palobby.com/wiki/Example_Mod_Custom_Skybox

    I see the example of

    Code:
       "identifier": "com.pa.you.your-skybox-name",
       "display_name": "My Custom Skybox",
       "description": "This is a demonstration of a custom skybox",
       "author": "demo",

    In this case, shouldn't we make one of the changes below?

    Code:
       "identifier": "com.pa.demo.your-skybox-name"
    or
    Code:
     "author": "you"
    If I understand this correctly, then the author/handle value is also missing from the identifiers of the 3 examples at the bottom of https://wiki.palobby.com/wiki/Planetary_Annihilation_Mod_Structure

    The identifier merely needs to be unique; it cannot be the same as the identifier for any other mod. So while it is not required to have your name in the identifier, it's a good way of making sure that the identifier will be unique. The other possibility is using your domain name is you have your own website.

    I've adjusted the examples to be consistent now with the author name, thanks!
