The default Addon folder location is specific to each product.
- ILLiad: C:\Program Files\ILLiad\Addons
- Ares: C:\Users\[username]\Documents\Ares\Addons
- Aeon: C:\Users\[username]\Documents\Aeon\Addons
Each Addon is housed there in a separate folder titled by name; for example, the Amazon Search Addon is stored in the AtlasAmazonSearch folder. That folder can contain one or more Lua scripts as well as an XML file to control how the script is used. When you fill out Addon settings in the client, they are stored in a LocalSettings.xml file, also located in the c:\Program Files\ILLiad\Addons folder. Storing the XML files in the base directory allows Atlas to replace and update files in the actual Addons folders without deleting any of your customized settings.
Redirecting the Addon Directory
The Addon directory can be redirected to another location via UNC path, mapped drive, etc., by adding a customization key called AddonDirectory that is not included by default. This location serves as a central place to store the Addon folders. Addons are not run from this remote location. Each time the client opens it looks at the Addons in the folder, checks the version number, and downloads files to the local folder as needed.
