Thanks! I thought you were looking at the load thing? (of course, you get tagged with almost everything, huh? ) No, I'm not quite sure how to approach that. I do find, however, that when the mod is set to default, it doesn't take that long to load after the initial load. In other words, when I add a bunch of new stuff it takes a good while to load. But every subsequent game I play seems to load in a decent amount of time. I'd be interested in knowing if my experience has been shared by others or if it's all in my head, which is always a possibility.
