Description

Hello, will there be a field to load pwads while on the ring zero ui (nice user interface there!)? Possibly that's the only thing left to make it independant of Snowberry.

Maybe a separated button called 'MODS' so one would just click or drag and drop the ones wanted to be loaded (drag and drop seems more suitable, since the file orders matters sometimes).

Indeed this is the plan: http://dengine.net/dew/index.php?title=Drop_Snowberry (#1600).

However, full support for resource packs is more complicated than just providing an option to select PWADs. Snowberry has a range of different resource pack formats that need to be handled by Doomsday. Plus there are some metadata considerations like conflict resolution of overlapping packages that needs to be ported from Snowberry's Python implementation.
