    A more simple/basic mod installer for modders to distribute their mods! The main reason for why you would want to do use this is the optional modules. So lets say you have a module which gives every civilization another UU, you can make it optional, so the person who downloads it will have a checkbox which if he clicks it will remove that module.
    Example:
    modinstaller.png
    upload_2021-1-30_14-48-42.png

    Also make sure the Name of your mod* is the actual folder name of your mod, which contains the assets and all that.
    Source Code: https://github.com/LouisTheXIV/Simple-Installer-Creator

    Tutorial:
    So, paste your mod into the folder called Mod. After that run the exe called InstallerCreator and choose whatever you want. Then you can test it out be checking out the python file in the Mod folder.
    When you finished all that you can rename the folder called Mod, Zip it, and put it for download!
    To run the mod installer you will have to run the python file btw.

    P.S. If you have Avast antivirus it will probably remove the exe and put it in the virus chest, at least that's what it did to me.
