    Don't zip the folder, only zip the contents. Make sure you are only using zip compression.

    Thanks. That helped! Apparently, 7zip defaults to archiving as a proprietary format rather than zip. Changing it to .zip format worked.

    can you post your mod here? the most common error is when zipping it up, you need to make sure you are not zipping up the folder itself, just the contents.

    * EDIT: LOL, too slow. someone already got to it. Thanks

    Nothing wrong with 7zip. I use it exclusively. Just gotta be sure to select the zip format and not the 7z format.

    Hi, New here. I just downloaded FGU and am starting a Tal'Dorei campaign. I was hoping to find a calendar that was already made, but I have not. So with the instructions here, I believe I have created one. Please feel free to use it and if there are any suggestions or comments, please let me know.

    Thanks
    (Note, this calendar was based from the information in either "Tal'Dorei campaign settings" or "Explorer's Guide to Wildemount" both created/authored by Matt Mercer. So all the data is from him and gets all the credit for its origination - hope that covers any Copyright stuff needed).

    Created a new calendar from one of the examples and then zip files using windows 10 compressor and renamed .mod
    Copied it to modules folder but none of calendar or module does not show up.

    Using FGU and Morecore
    Restarted program


    Any suggestion what's wrong?

    So I downloaded my calendar into FGU. However, I noticed that all the months start on the first day (Mon). They don't continue through the week from the previous month. Can anyone help me figure out why that is?

    EG: Jan has 29 days and the 29th is on Wed. Feb 1 starts on Mon (1st day of the week) instead of Thur (the next day after Jan 29th)

    You just have too many things lumped together wrong. you have an Asharisk.ext file and Asharisk.mod file both inside of a CalenderAsharisk.mod file. They should not be inside another mod file, but instead, the individual files should be copied to the directories. the Asharisk.mod file should be copied to the modules folder, and the Asharisk.ext file should be copied to your extensions folder.
