Please Package Submissions in .Zip Files   RisenAngel | 1/7/2024discuss  log in to like post  2

It's great to see the recent enthusiasm in submitting adoptions, cobs, and whatnot!

However, I would like to provide a reminder that any submission should be packaged in a .zip file before uploading. This is because Creatures Caves will automatically attempt to convert any submission into a .zip file, regardless of what file type it was originally was.

So if you attempt to submit a raw file (.creature, .agent, etc.), the website will turn it into a completely invalid .zip file that cannot be opened in any way. Likewise, compressed files of any other format than .zip (.rar, .7z, etc.) will be turned into partially invalid .zip files (can't be opened normally, but can potentially be opened in other programs such as 7zip).

If you are unsure on how to package your submissions in a .zip file, you can learn how here (for Windows) or here (for Mac).

Thank you!

I've been out of the web development game for a while. Is zip still standard? Should we allow other files? I'm always open to suggestions. :)

I do feel like .rar at least is popular enough in the community to warrant including. Not sure about other compressed file types; I can't say I remember seeing anything that used any format other than .zip or .rar. Not sure if allowing raw files is a good idea or not.

If nothing else, I do feel like attempting to submit a non-allowed file type should get the submission automatically rejected.

Yeah .zip is like still the most popular imo.
