    Here are links to mod threads that are pretty useful for optimizing your play if you're using the Cyanide client.

    Removing Stadiums
    I find most the stadiums really hard to play on so I just deleted all but one so all my mates are on the same pitch (same with spectating as well)
    Go to your game folder and navigate to \Data\3d\Level
    Then simply delete the "Level_0x" that matches the pitches you want to remove. You might want to make a backup folder somewhere and cut and paste them in case you easily want to add them back at a later date.
    If you aren't sure which number is which stadium go to \Data\3d\Textures\Stadiums and the order of the images there match the order of the stadiums. Do note that the numbers don't match up as they are from 0 while the stadiums start at 1.

    Remove the Crowd Chanting when near the End Zone with the Ball
    I find the crowd noises when standing with the ball by the end zone really annoying. Especially if you are there for multiple turns. You can simply rename or delete the crowd noise files and you don't have to suffer them.
    Go to the \Data\Sound\Events\Public folder and look for the following three files:
    PublicPreTDLoop_01 PublicPreTDLoop_02 PublicPreTDLoop_03
    I simple renamed them to put "old" on the end, for example PublicPreTDLoop_01old then if you want them back you can just rename them back to the original name.

    Eddeby made two good mods - one for easily kicking centrally without having to count, and one with a pretty grid in general. Coach recommends them both highly. They are spoilered because they make this post a bit big and picture heavy but it's good stuff.
    Plus another useful tidbit:

    NoJeb posted the following graphical mod at Reddit
    I duplicated the links somewhat through the text since the Reddit thread implied some people had problems finding them..

    I know its not a mod, but the port issues thread it worth linking for anyone trying to get the best out of Cyanide, so I added it anyway. :D

    Am I right in thinking that people have made custom grid layouts with different appearances that you can replace in the Blood Bowl folder?

    Would be good to have links to those if they still exist for Chaos Edition.

    Yes there is a pack of community content mods, linked at Cyanide forums, which includes a new more flashy grid layout:

    http://forum.bloodbowl-game.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=169

    But also, for some reason I cant get my vanilla grid to look like the one they use at the TGS tourney, showing the tackle zones with "x". Which was the shortcut key for that? "G" does not seen to work for me,

    I've had some trouble with the end turn button mod on Steam. Anyway, short story is that the auto installer doesn't work so just have to go in and replace the End turn layout file in the BB data folder with the one in the mod data folder.

    The community content pack includes the end turn button repositioned below your team turn counter and banner. I have it fully installed in BBCE, no issues so far that I can tell.

    Is it possible to totally remove some of the pitches as well, or only play matches on the same one of your choice every time?

    Just delete the pitches you don't like, and replace them with copies of a pitch you like, should work fine.

    (When trying, as always backup first and try an exhibition match in single player mode)

    I see that it is saving stuff on my c: even though my documents is on another drive on my pc. Is there an easy way to get the game to save them in my proper my docs folder?

    After playing on many great looking custom pitches for tabletop that have the centre square marked out on the board (for ease when kicking) I got a bit fed up having to go back to counting it out every time I kicked.

    A quick post on the official BB boards and a day later there is a handy little mod that marks out the centre square on the pitch now. There is one for each stadium so you can pick and choose which ones you would like it on. As I've only got one stadium left I just needed that one.

    Check the thread out http://forum.bloodbowl-game.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2916&p=32371#p32363

    Also added to OP for reference.

    coach, the custom grid that eddebaby made is the highlight of that thread for me. VERY nice, very clean, and is it me or does BBCE actually have less visual lag using that grid somehow? thanks for that link, im stoked I stumbled upon that!

    I've been playing around a bit with the visuals of the game and these are set by a file Cell.dds, many of the mods and content packs include replacement Cell.dds files.

    You can view and edit these with Photoshop, paint.net, or GIMP (with a DDS plugin).

    It can be worthwhile to look at the default file, and several of the alternates out there to cut/paste the elements you like from each one to make your own final file.

    I ve also found out that clearing everything inside a Bloodbowl game folder called "Cache", and relaunching the game, tends to help in seeing the right mod whenever there are issues.

    OP can you find the thread the details how to use Blood Bowl Manager and put in first post, since we don't have that info stickied?
