how can get the filename / path of the current (mod) map?

my script is a extrasourcefile from a mod.

i have found a solution:

function EventListener:loadMap(name)

local pathToModMap, n = string.gsub(name, "/map01.i3d", "");
print("pathToModMap ", pathToModMap)

There are two variables:

g_currentModDirectory and g_currentModName. Containing the path to the mod and the name of the mod.
Eg. "C:/...My Games/FarmingSimulator2011/mods/TestMod" and "TestMod".

These variables are only valid during the initialization of the mod. So you should not use them within some functions.

However you can store the contents of these values at the beginning of the lua and then use these:

local modName = g_currentModName;
local modDir = g_currentModDirectory;

function myFunction()
print("the dir: "..modDir);
