Been meaning to ask this for a while now but haven't had any issues that I know of because of it.
Okay in the game contents folder I don't have an Add-ons folder, only a Resource folder. I have been placing oxp's or z's in there. Seems to work fine.
Do I need to create an Add-ons folder?

Yes, if you want to have manual control over OXPs. Make sure it's called AddOns, without a hyphen.

Well that didn't work.
None of the OXZ's in the new AddOns folder are recognized.
AddOns folder is in the Resource folder.
So what's wrong cause now I can't play any of my saved games.

Found in the folder that contains the Oolite application. Alternatively you can also have the AddOns folder in your user area at ~/Library/Application Support/Oolite/AddOns/.
I've no idea how Macs work, but I think the AddOns folder needs to be a level or two up from Resources.

The AddOns folder should be at the same level as Oolite.app.

What?
I have no idea what you mean.
I'm sorry, I'm 50 years old and never had a computer class in my life. I know how to surf the net,. Play games, and teaching myself digital arts.
You'll have to explain things to me like a 3rd grader. Lmao

In ~/Library/Application Support/Oolite/
there are 2 folders: 'AddOns' and 'Managed AddOns'.

You can use the AddOns folder there.

Or you can create a folder named 'AddOns' in the same folder where the Oolite application is.
This second option is (imho) more convenient, since ~/Library doesn't show up in Finder normally.

How do you find that?
I type in exactly what you have into finder and come up with nothing.

Wait, used Spotlight instead and found Managed AddOns folder.
Do I move the AddOns folder I created into it?

Messing with the Managed AddOns folder may interfere with the correct operation of the OXP Manager. It's best if you don't do it. Try checking under ~/Library/Application Support/Oolite and if you don't see an AddOns folder there, create it and then move your OXPs there.

Alright it all loaded up fine, opening screen changed, but looks like everything is working fine.
Thanks guys now I know it's done the right way. I really didn't want to screw it up.
