Fantastic tool, really helpful for managing all the maps and mods.
This is really useful, especially for mods that work better with different source ports and for mods which are hard to identify with the folder name, the only thing I would add is an option to change the image without having to drag it from the folder

This is unrelated, but I'm glad to finally change Simple Quake Launcher because I keep confusing it with SQL
