Mod Creator Toolkit is now available!
The Creator Toolkit, a collection of tools intended for mod creators, is available now!
The Creator Toolkit will serve as a platform for official tools that aid in mod creation. For this initial release, we've focused on one major feature that we think will provide a ton of value to mod creators: installing and loading local mods.
Opting to use local mods for your mod development will significantly cut down on iteration time and help avoid common pitfalls with uploading and testing mods on mod.io.
Using a new file for your local mod can be done in two clicks, and avoids unnecessary network traffic as well as keeping your mod.io releases clean and meaningful.
Local mods can also be linked to mod.io mod profiles, enabling fast and convenient conversion of a local mod file to a live mod release. Mod developers who have deleted old releases on mod.io may have also ran into a caching problem with filenames. Using the Creator Toolkit to release a local mod file avoids that pitfall by automatically giving each uploaded release a unique filename.
We're excited about what's possible with this new platform and hope to continue delivering useful tools to the hands of mod creators.
You can find the Creator Toolkit available within the Mod Manager on Steam or in the browser (not available on Mobile for obvious reasons).
If you've previously created a mod on mod.io you'll see a tab at the top of the Mod Manager. Otherwise, search for "Creator Toolkit" in the Browse tab and subscribe to it from there. (A game restart is required after installing the Creator Toolkit)
