Re: making mod with deuterocanonicals
We are still working on adding support for different versifications and for deuterocanonical books. It would be best to create books using the OSIS XML format (see http://www.bibletechnologies.net/ and http://www.crosswire.org/wiki/OSIS_Bibles). A list of OSIS book abbreviations may be found at http://www.crosswire.org/wiki/OSIS_Book_Abbreviations.

With an OSIS version of your text, you will be able to use osis2mod to convert it to Sword format.

If your Bible is fairly simple (no footnotes, cross references, headings, etc.) then you can use the IMP format instead. A brief description of IMP can be found here: http://www.crosswire.org/wiki/File_Formats#IMP

With an IMP file, you can use imp2vs to convert to Sword format.

I can't recommend using VPL format since vpl2mod is not really supported any more. You can achieve the same results and more by using imp2vs, so we won't be updating vpl2mod to support deuterocanonical books or different versifications.
