I know vaguely that mods are changing the game to suit yourself... but what is the mod on the home page? What does it do?

Are you referring to the SDK on the mod page? If so it just has some tools and instructions on how to make a mod.

Ah, ok. It was an .exe wanting to install and... I panicked. That's pretty easy to do, actually.

Better than installing something you shouldn't. Not that those generally ask for permission, but you never know.

the ones that do are called trojen horses. they take advantage of the fact that if the user orders somthing installed, all barriers drop. plus, stuff somtimes needs user confirmation to install without getting bounced by a firewall.

Trojan horses and the like are the absolute best hacks...while computers never fault, the fallibility of the human race is ripe for exploitation : ).

Actually, my whole fear had been that I was about to install something that would kill my user file, screw up the game, or otherwise undo all the work I've put into this thing.

Hacks 'n stuff, my virus protections would catch.
