This is Lisa's Clothes pack CH6. Since Lisa always removes her old CH packs when she updates it to a new one and she aslo renames the file - some modules can become unplayable to new playes who need an older HAK instead of the new one. Remodifying all HAKs in a module is no option either when Lisa releases a new HAK. The module I am hoping to release in March, 'Champion of Horus' suffers this same problem. That's why I reuploaded Lisa's CH6 pack. Newer versions Lisa's CH pack to be found at: http://nwvault.ign.com/Files/hakpacks/data/1040598113289.shtml
A little of the record: Personally; I see the fact that HAK packs on a certain URL can suddenly changed (or be removed) by the author as a mayor problem - as it can make modules unplayable. I would favor a system where a change to a HAK pack would create a new page for the new HAK pack. The old url for the old HAK pack should still be working. Especially when the new HAK pack just includes one or two new features that are not used in the module anyway. Lisa and Maximus disagree though.
I was wondering a while ago I found a mod that the player could go in and make sexy outfits for the female characters. Can anyone tell me what happened to it.

Now I have to be correct there.
He felt that, altough the system was not perfect, it was
the best way to approach the problem (according to Maximus)

I already made a similar suggestion to Maximus. I mailed
him quite a lenghty mail on Feb 25, 2003. He replied that
he felt that the current system that is being used for the
HAK packs is the best.

Might want to suggest to maximus that when an update is
made, the updator can specify if it is a new version, and
if so it will leave the old version as a link on the page
in an older versions list. Basically a bunch of links to
older files. Dont make it automatic, if you are uploading a
fix, you dont want the original there anymore, just new

I have thought about naming it something using the name of
the module. But I decided against it.
The whole idea of patch 1.28’s multiple HAK support is
that users no longer have to download the same HAK twice.
By giving the HAK a different name, it might confuse the
users and they might end up downloading it unneeded. I am
mainly thinking about the users who already have CH6, and
at who the re-upload was not aimed. By keeping the
original name, the confusion should be kept to a minimum.
The HAK I just uploaded is just a source HAK – there has
nothing been modified. There is nothing really module
specific about it.

If you want to secure it you simply need repost the hak
pack under your name with like a module name and say module
specific. Then in the discription credit the real hak pak
authors, this will make it easy to find for players, secure
from updates, and won't trouble maximus or lisa in any way
shape or form...
