Requiring Other Addons

The article states:

  • Avoid requiring other addons - In some cases this is permissible - like if it's an addon for a gamemode. If your addon does require another addon - it shouldn't error if that addon isn't present. It should just do nothing.

But about this.. I recently started uploading to the workshop, and noticed this menu option, at the bottom: Add/Remove Required Items. Screenshot: https://i.gyazo.com/b6a2534c5031fb963bec8d4ba1aaee11.png

Inside: https://i.gyazo.com/3520eb38e094bfd9856118c728d4ff5f.png

So, with this Steam-side system in place, shouldn't this rule be abolished, or at least, modified to allow requirements but mandate that addons list their requirements using this menu?

I don't see the need of removing the recommendation ( it's not a rule, it doesn't strictly forbid you anything ). This part still stands as a requirement: If your addon does require another addon - it shouldn't error if that addon isn't present. It should just do nothing.. --Robotboy655 19:53, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
