    I was trying to change the .lua file of the increase of mod thumbnails from 500 to 900. Changes - Mod Vignettes (Thumbnails)

    Code:
    original:
    
    local number = 0;
        local String=""
        for i,v in ipairs(result) do
            --if Entity:PrototypeIsVisible(v) then
                number = number + 1
                if (number > 500) then
    
    new:
    
    local number = 0;
        local String=""
        for i,v in ipairs(result) do
            --if Entity:PrototypeIsVisible(v) then
                number = number + 1
                if (number > 900) then 
    After I saved the .lua file and trying to change it to a .patch file the CitiesXL PakUnpak converter application stopped working.
    Is there anyone that could help me?

    Still not fixed though. I just want to increase my amouth of mods per sub-menu. I wonder is it possible to send the file that I'd edited to you or someone else who is able to package it inside a .pack file.

    There was two areas that had the value 500 so I changed them both to 900. Let me know if it's correct. See attached patch file.

    The important thing with the upackupack tool is to close it after using it once. If you keep it open and try to work on another file or repack what you just unpacked, it will error.

    Did the thumbnail mod work at the original 500 value?
