    Are there only 113 XXL resources to the 939 for XL?
    Or do some of the XL resources work on XXL?
    I think the XXL resources pages should also list all the XL ones that are known to be compatible.
    I know there was some list on the forums but searching for it should not be necessary.

    When we add a mod in the XXL resource section we have the option to add previous versions that its compatible with.
    There is a list in the resource area that someone started. Im not sure if its still updated though. I lost faith in it as some of the mods stated to work dont and I got sick of the crashes.

    You are right,
    Some "XL resource" works perfectly on "XXL"

    @IcyHot
    I agree,
    If you want I can take care of transferring the "XL resources" that operate in the XXL version in the "XXL resources"?

    I do think it would be very helpful to be able to have an entry compatible with both games listed in both sections, if that's possible.

    Wowwww, that seems like that's a lot of work.
    Your not concerned about the flack you'll get if ya get one wrong?
    Would it be easier/better to list a mod as CitiesXXL (2015) compatible on it's original XL resource page?
    example:
    Compatible:
    CitiesXL 2011
    CitiesXL 2012
    CitiesXL Platinum
    CitiesXXL (2015)

    Otherwise, there may be an "official list XXL" "XL NATION" with a link that references directly on the "resources XL"

    This avoids overloading the servers XL NATION?
    What do you think?

    I don't think we want to go down this path for a number of reasons:

    1. While an XL Mod "might" work in XXL that does not mean it was designed for XXL. We are talking about filter tags and menu tags for example.
    2. There are plenty of examples here where one person reports a mod works fine in XXL and then some one else reports errors.

    These errors can be caused for various reasons. I personally encountered patch errors because certain patches loaded before another patch file. That was a bitch to troubleshoot. Each of us stores our patch files using different file structures inside the Mod Folder.

    Yes that's true,
    I totally understand.
    This is a wise decission!

    Still, having some knowledge of modding, I allows me to do a little unofficial list.

    The list of "DD" consistent mods from the "XL Version" for the "XXL"
    Each mod of this list has been dissected to insured proper operation.
