Yeah, bundle a copy of the module folder of the DLC with your translation on top and click to check the DLC requirement in the Workshop mod profile page so that only people who own it can play it. That should be it. There's no way for the game to know what you are trying to do, each mod works independently. At the very minimum there should be a module.ini for the game to detect the folder and appear in the drop-down list. So yeah, duplicate everything.

I understand. So the best way is to manually copy files from Workshop to Warband.
Thank you so much for your patience and your help :smile:

No, the best way is for you to copy the contents from the DLC folder (Modules/Viking Conquest/*) into Modules/Viking Conquest ITA/ or something, paste your languages/it folder in there and upload that. Don't make a Steam Workshop entry with instructions for people to copy stuff manually, maybe just do that in the less likely case they want to re-use their existing savegames, tell them how to move them to your modded version of the DLC.

By doing it this way they only have to click on Subscribe and play. But yeah, also try asking the DLC team, they may be happy to include it officially.

Thanks a lot Swyter! Your support is providential as always, we'll try that (y)

Does it mean that the translation will be automatically applicable only to the base Viking Conquest?
Let's say I want to both put the ITA translation and also subscribe to another Workshop mod that changes some textures; the only way to do it would be to first subscribe to the translation and then apply the texture changes manually in the folders, right?

Alternatively you could ask TW if they implement your translations into the game and DLC ^^
? A delightful idea indeed!

Warband mods don't really stack up like in Skyrim or Bannerlord. If such a texture swap mod exists they would also have to either bundle the whole DLC folder again or do what you were trying to do with manual replacements. The only change is pointing the users to use your folder (usually somewhere like C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\48700\299974223) instead of the original one.

Just put that in the description, maybe also provide a place to download the translation files independently for those not using Steam/the Steam Workshop/wanting to install the ITA translation into a different mod pack.

That's what I would do, at least. Covers all the cases, giving choice, and still makes it easy to use in the most common case.
