SOLUTION

Zakblood's instructions solved it:

Right-click the My Documents or Documents folder. ...
Click the Location tab.
Click the Move button.
In the resulting dialog box, go to your name folder in drive D:, create a new folder inside it called documents , and select that.
After you click OK, click Yes to move your files.



I have been waiting a long while for FOGII to permit us to decide where the game can expect to find the Mods. It is taking too much space on the precious C: drive.

I hope somebody lets me know when this feature is supported.

Why do you have your /Documents folder on your faster drive?

or like RBS has said and mentioned,
Right-click the My Documents or Documents folder. ...
Click the Location tab.
Click the Move button.
In the resulting dialog box, go to your name folder in drive D:, create a new folder inside it called documents , and select that.

On my 2017 build I have Win10 on my 250GB SSD, Documents, Steam & non-Steam games on my "Games" drive, and Music, Videos and Pictures on my "Media" drive. If only there were an invention that put the wealth of world knowledge at our finger tips. A little research and less dramatics could've solved this right from the start.

On my new build I have an 250 GB M.2 drive on the MoBo as the C drive with Win 10 and a 500 GB SSD as my game/storage drive with my Steam library. There are plenty of YT videos demonstrating how to move your steam library or non-steam installs as well.

Thanks for the help, everybody! I now have Field of Glory II running as I would like, in a custom folder/drive, and with Mods installed and accessible to the game in a custom folder too.

For those interested in why I might have had difficulty:

1) I had no trouble with installing the game to a custom drive/folder
2) The problem was an apparent requirement of having the game Mods installed into a folder which was by default on the system drive/C drive/fast drive.
3) The solution I was hoping for was for the game to be updated to allow you to specify where this default folder would be found. The solution was instead to relocate the needed folder from my system drive to a storage drive. (I think my solution would be more elegant, but would require coding.)
4) Compounding the confusion for me was hearing that the TT Mod had to be in that default folder. (It is the largest Mod, also.) This made me think that cutting pasting the folder elsewhere wouldn't work, as it would no longer "be the same folder", as it would then be in a different location. Fortunately, if you take a man full of beer out of a bar, he remains, in addition to being full of beer, the same man.
5) I didn't keep documents in that fast drive folder, I just kept the folder as I believed it was necessary for the game's mods to work.

I am happy to be able to enjoy the game again.

Don’t forget hearing the “lamenting of the women’s” especially with an Austrian,.. I mean a Cimmerian accent.
