    I have a question about Updating OCMOD3 V1.0 on Steam Workshop. When I release V1.1 how do I release it? Silly question I know but no updating method is obvious to me. I am not sure what to do. Clearly I am overlooking the obvious once again. Sigh. :confused:

    The button is Upload to Workshop in the Mod Manager.

    Silly me! But I have made a problem for myself. The way I work I make the name new each time because the version number is part of the name. Thus OCMOD3 V1.0 is up now as the mod. My new version in test is currently called OCMOD3 V1.1 Test2 (it's all title). Of course, when its ready for release I would scrub the "Test2" off it and it would just be called OCMOD3 V1.1

    But mod manager thinks this is a new mod. I don't want to upload a whole new mod, I want to update the existing one and have it named as OCMOD3 V1.1

    I am not good at this version control stuff. Exactly how could I do this? Again, I am sure the obvious solution is staring me in the face but I can't see it.

    You must upload the new version content to the same folder from which you downloaded the first version to workshop.
    You cant rename this folder. But you can rename the Mod in Workshop or Mod-manager.

    You can use this: http://imgur.com/a/TNRM9 to identify the different mod versions, I see no point in posting the version of the mod in it's name.

    The changenote would suffice if you ask me, for those that care about the mod's version.
