It would be easier still to look at their code and see how they do it, especially since one of the versions distributes your items randomly to different containers, so that you don't know where they are. Why this reluctance, though?

Reluctance. Probably because opening the 2.9.4 mods to someone (even just for personal projects) carry the huge risk of whoever gets permission will download 2.9.4 mods and upload them somewhere else, distributing the outdated stuff we want to keep contained to prevent all the problems and months of work wasted, we had to deal with in the past. :?

That is why the policy at the moment is just to give access to people we know, so they will update those mods for the latest TTW version.

This is not because we don't trust the community but just to avoid the huge problems we had in the past. And if it ever happens because we open the old mods access, it will continue forever, because the mods would be accessible in places we can't really take them down (like Mega or other file hosting sites). :(

And that is why there's this reluctance to give access to those files, when it's not that hard to learn how to do this particular stuff without access to them. :cry:

That's reasonable enough, I suppose. Let's hope the reopening isn't too far off still.

I'd wager you'll see new versions of those 2.9 mods for 3.2 before you see the 2.9 forum opened. Take a look at the recent support posts. People are still using incompatible stuff they're getting off the Nexus and completely ignoring the FAQ and incompatible mods list. All opening the 2.9 subforum would do is exacerbate the problem.

There is no need to sugarcoat as by not opening the 2.9.4 mods means that there is already a certain degree of distrust which imo is warranted. I myself think that the devs should keep it this way to ensure quality conversion instead of quantity. It may not be a surefire method but at least there is some prevention.

I tend to agree, a lot of the older conversions left a lot to be desired.
