I have a series of outfits that I would like to make into a zip file for others to download. What exactly should I put into it? Like if I changed the outfit of the city level, do I put all of files found in the graphics/wads named "city" into it?

If you think your outfit would work better in a whole WAD. Then just put all the files

city.was
city.wad
city.sfx
city.swd
city.sam


You might want to included a readme.txt to give credits etc.

If you would like to make the dl smaller, extract Lara_Skin, Lara_Skin_Joints, Lara_Scream, and if you have a custom ponytail, Hair objects into a new WAD.

I sort of don't like it when people put their outfits in a whole level wad.

because to add that outfit to another wad, you'd have to extract it and then add it.

I recommend not putting it in a whole wad, unless your outfit is complex with extra movables or objects (like custom guns etc.)

and also mini-wads are only a few bytes, zipped up
whole wads are up to 2MB, zipped.
