Seeing how normals have been moved from the main pk3s to the PBR addons... May I suggest you to include the "GFX.Brightmaps" and the "GFX.Extra" addons in the "Lite" version?
They're lightweight enough and given their QOL nature, they are probably the ones most people might be more interested in..
The current distribution model however force everyone to download the full version for all 3 games in order to get updates for these small addons.
Thank you for this, anyway!
I want to keep the Lite version free from all addons for people who are not familiar with loading mods. A while back I used to include brightmaps in there and then I read comments from someone who wanted a vanilla-like experience but complained that the monsters had glowy bits.
What I'm planning to do somewhere down the line is to make the Lite version the main version of the mod, and distribute all addons separately. Maybe not even make them autoload anymore. It will be a little messy because of ModDB's interface, but I think it's for the best. I just need to figure out how to distribute the addons that are specific to map packs while keeping it friendly for people who have never dealt with load orders.
