    Systematic nomenclature will avoid total chaos in your game directory and facilitate easy file management.

    Use for example first four letters of your name followed by mapname or filename:

    shemcrimea.wac

    shemcrimea.npj

    shemcrimea.bin

    shemhod.wac

    shemhod.npj

    shemhod.bin

    etc.

    This will allow you to include additional files to get the most out of your maps. Here are some examples:

    shemsoundxxx.wav

    shemxx.aip

    shemtextxx.txt

    Now you can order files by NAME and keep the game directory tidy. If you are inconsistent and careless hosts will be unable to match all required files with your maps and decide to remove them. As a result your maps will look really stupid, e.g. vehicles will move around without animations. You may have seen helicopters floating around without spinning blades. It’s not a pretty sight.
