RAGE Mod Tools Still Coming

John Carmack tweets that there are still plans to release the overdue mod tools for RAGE, id's semi-recent first-person shooter (thanks VG247/Joystiq/NeoGAF). He ruefully says:

BFG work pushed the Rage tools, but Real Soon Now. I hope. Sigh. I think we have made poor decisions on this all year.

Your right! I, however, am going to very much take 1650 MB/sec read speed with having to deal with copying games over to my backup HDD and reinstalling Steam (if applicable).

There's a way to copy games into Steam without having to re-download.

What you do is you delete everything except steam.exe and the steamapps folder. You then copy in correctly the game data you want into steamapps.

Then run Steam.exe, let it redownload the Steam core files, then you select the game you installed manually and select "verify game cache".

It will then verify the data, redownload any missing files, and you can run your game again without having to download the entire thing.

With this, you can backup games to an HDD that you don't currently need but might want in the future.

Note: it can take some time to verify the cache. For some reason, it will download some data (not much though) despite having copied everything.

If you have a faster connection than my .73 megabit DSL and a faster computer than this Athlon 64 X2 2.2 GHz, you probably won't experience any hassle.
