    Spring clear modules: which are not needed for 5E

    I'm using a batch file to do some spring cleaning. Am I right I don't need these modules for 5E when I have the normal books? I don't mind doing this over when I do an update.

    3.5E-basicrules.mod
    3.5E-magicitems.mod
    3.5E-monsters.mod
    3.5E-spells.mod
    AAW-A00-35E.mod
    AAW-A01-PF.mod
    calendars.mod
    DD Basic Rules - DM.mod
    DD Basic Rules - Player.mod
    DD5E SRD Bestiary.mod
    DD5E SRD Data.mod
    DD5E SRD Magic Items.mod
    FateCoreSRD.mod
    fumblecrit.mod
    PF-SRD-Basic-Rules.mod
    PF-SRD-Bestiary.mod
    PF-SRD-Magic-Items.mod
    PF-SRD-Spells.mod

    No you don't need any of those for 5e.
    If you need to contact customer support or if there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea here http://fgapp.idea.informer.com/

    Not calendars.mod? Though maybe only if you load a campaign calendar.

    Just out of curiosity:
    What's your reasoning behind deleting the files?

    I could see why you might want to delete the SRD, when you already have the PHB etc. because it will show up in your Library as loadable. So it will "clutter" it with modules you don't need for 5E.

    But why delete the other rulesets modules?
    Wouldn't that just mean the downloader will download the files even if there are no changes to them over and over again when you delete them? Which would lead to longer update times.
    Are you using the universal loader extension to load modules from other rulesets which could lead to the mentioned reason I could think of before for them, too?

    Those downloads will happen anyway for the 5e stuff, so I'll have to run the batch file after each update. It's completism and just leaving the files I do recognize and use. They might not bother me, but deleting them doesn't hurt either.

    Update speed could be a reason not to remove them.
