Also nice when reinstalling DCS after a DCS root folder wipe.
You can do this using symbolic links in Vista and later. I keep DCS on a SDD for speed, but keep my mods on a conventional HDD and use symbolic links to put them in my GME Mods folder on the SDD. I recommend not using hard links or junctions, though; unlike symbolic links, deleting junctions or hard links will also remove the original data as well.

Fear the Bolts!

The average naval aviator, despite the sometimes swaggering exterior, is very much capable of such feelings as love, affection, intimacy, and caring.
These feelings just don't involve anyone else.
