The addons format is a method of formatting the folders in a distributed mod to ensure it is easiest to install ([[GAE]] users can simply copy the archive to their addons folder, while [[Glest]] and [[MegaGlest]] users need to only extract the archive into the installation directory and their personal MegaGlest folder, respectively). It is done by having all folders relative to the <tt>share/glestae</tt> folder (in GAE) or the installation directory (in Glest/MegaGlest). The name of the archive can be any unique name (preferably including version numbers and the name of the mod) while the folder structure must always be constant. Think of it as having the archive ''merged'' with the installation directory (or <tt>share/glestae</tt> directory in GAE).
