I'm going to start modding. If I want to remove an event from the game, how will I do that with an ".append" file?

Remove it entirely, or change it to do something else?
You can't actually "remove" an event with .append, but you can change the events where that particular event is triggered. (example, rewriting <event name="TRADER_CIV"> to call some other event or nothing at by modifying its <event load="..."/> functions). In this method, the event you wanted to remove is still "there," but since nothing points to it, it never gets called.

Eh... I don't have a FTLGame.exe file...
I bought FTL via Steam, and I have Windows. I know that it SHOULD reside in in FTL Faster Than Light, under common, under SteamApps, under Steam, under Program Files (x86), under the local disk in Computer.
I do have a FTLGame file, but it's not .exe. It is an application, and starts the game.
And I swear that I didn't touch the base file before I got GMM.

Also, another question: How do you start GMM? With Modman? Because I have no idea.

I hope I can fix this soon. I'm eager to use some mods like the Obsidian Cruiser and the Foundation of the Federation.

Erm, it says that it needs to be in the same folder as FTLGame.exe on my Mac... that's a problem. What do I do?
Got a event, alternative text, or maybe a new sector? Add it to the Additional Events & Texts (AET) mod! Credits will be given, and you will help make a big pack of content!

I don't know if they renamed it for the DRM-free version or what, but the mod manager files should be in the same directory of the application used to play the game.

Yes sir.

Sounds like you're either mistyping the command or you don't have python 2.x installed.

The enclosed readme file gives you the correct location for Mac OS X. :)

I can't help you without more details. Did you move everything to the correct folder? Check out the the readme file that GMM comes with.

I'm a modding novice and when you say in the mac version to "navigate to it in your terminal and install it", who do you do that? I know what terminal but I have never used it. Or could you point me to a video tutorial. :)

I followed your directions and when I opened main.py via Python Launcher 2.6.1 I got this message pop-up...
