      Description

      Replaces SF Tracker: 2895433

      The idea has been floated to keep base.xml more manageable by separating out the base.xml into more manageable gamemode specific base.xml or 'mode.xml', so things for fantasy/SRD aren't being mixed in with Future/Modern, etc...

      Especially now with a lot of support being thrown into the OS, we really need to keep the file more manageable. This would tie in with the FREQ to keep the OS's organized by gamemode as well.

        I could be wrong but I recall this having been implemented long ago for
        CMP. My poor memory is telling me that a base.xml file in the gameMode
        folder will override the default base.xml, you might give that a try and
        see if this is the case.

        You're correct. Changing this to a Doc Tracker so we preserve this
        Knowledge.

        Doc Monkey - A Base.XML file may be placed in the
        system/gamemode/<gamemode> folder to have a Gamemode Specific BASE.XML.
        Allowing individual base.xml files for specific campaigns.

        This was apparently implemented several years ago. Eddy Anthony put an appropriate note on the base.xml page.
