I gotta say that now I can create my own game and I don’t have to wait for the devs to balance and upload it as an update. This is really helpful!
I realized how simple it is to understand and work on the modding tool as soon as I watched the tutorials on Youtube. It is really easy and simple. Learned lots of shortcuts during my progress and that made it soo much easier.
Please share tips about:
Updating “Description of the mode”.
“Transfering changes from original mode to new mode”
“Adding picture on mode”
About some issues:
Some Campaign Hero Models are not recached so they would appear as a square box.
I was trying to give some civs a hero from the campaign but was unfortunately not possible due to this issue.
Next thing is that I don’t see any option to reskin available units from one to another. If anyone knows about this, please let me know.
Some technologies and units are nonexistent some were removed in April 2020 as I read notes in the description etc. It would be really nice to add all of them back, so modders can put them back into the game.
Edit: (Spoiler alert!) I saw some new technologies for some civs
I think the mod tools are a great first start to adding mod support. I’m impressed with how they managed a mod system in game and with the raw scripting support that’s in the game. I never expected the tool to have breakpoints and rpc functionality. I get the feeling that this mod tool is something they use internally too with how much developer quality of life work they put into it.
But I would really love if they enabled the ability to upload your own models and change the UI. I don’t think it’d be horrible to allow users the ability to override the xaml files inside the game to customize their UI. My ideal solution is that they add a type of mod that can be used to customize the UI that’s useable in quick match/ranked.
I’m confused. Are mods only alternate game modes? I was hoping for UI enhancements and quality of life mods. If anyone saw the N4C tournament - that overlay should be a mod. I want to check all my techs and queues without selecting everything.
