File Naming Conventions

All filenames should follow the naming conventions described below.

General Rules

  • No spaces in the file name are allowed
  • No capital letters are allowed
  • XML, JSON, PNG, PMD, PSA and DDS files should use these rules. For any file-formats not specially mentioned here, follow similar naming rules to fit the file type.
  • If using numbers always use two digits. Example: 01, not 1
  • Use underscore ( _ ) to separate portions of the file name
  • Use this order <general>_<civ>_<type>_<extra>_<variation>
  • If the folder path to the file already defines one portion of the name, exclude that from the file name.

Examples:

  • celt_isw_a_01.dds – Meaning: Advanced Celtic Infantry Swordsman, Variation 01 Texture
  • kart_hc.pmd – Meaning: Carthaginian Health Center Model
