The problem is that earlier non-MS mods would also be considered new.
If you set my latest IO.SYS to 2006, it would not replace my earlier IO.SYS from 2010.
You make a good point. The date I gave to backdate was just an example. I don't have to use that specific date.
The actual date doesn't matter. The issue remains.
Another complication is that I often release updates as Patchers rather than the files themselves, for Copyright reasons, so the date on the file is the date the Patch was applied.
This would not be an issue for prepatched files in your SP but might affect the SP's installation.
But people have been having problems with the SP, maybe because of files conflicting with each other. I think we should all be on the same page. LoneCrusader made a great point. There should be the original version and only one modded version. IMO your patches for files has yet to let me down. So there is always room in the SP for your files.
Conflicting Mods are always going to be a problem. People may want different combinations of Mods. A single "Core" Version having only Mods, that everyone can agree should be present , would be the basis for a SP file. Anything else would be optional addons.
