Mods

After several weeks of testing, Avorion Workshop support for mods is now live on the default branch! This update introduces big changes in the game's bowels to make modding as easy as possible for both modders and mod users.

We believe that a sandbox game is only truly a sandbox when players have the ability to mod it. So we spared no expense and effort to bring you guys this update. We did our best to make it as easy as possible to use and create mods.

To download a mod, simply subscribe to the workshop item. In the main menu, there is now a new window in Settings -> Mods, where you can enable all downloaded mods to your heart's desire. Keep in mind that mods can corrupt saves!

Creating Mods

Creating mods can be a complex process, so we spent weeks and wrote a lot of guides for all you modders:

General Introduction: https://wiki.avorion.net/Modding
Modding Guide: https://wiki.avorion.net/Writing_your_own_Mod
Mod Examples: https://wiki.avorion.net/Mod_Examples
Avorion Internals Guide: https://wiki.avorion.net/Avorion_Internal_Architecture
Modding Pitfalls: https://wiki.avorion.net/Modding_Pitfalls
Debugging: https://wiki.avorion.net/Debugging_Scripts
Best Practices: https://wiki.avorion.net/Best_Practices

Using Mods on Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers download workshop mods configured in a new modconfig.lua file. Clients that connect to those servers will download mods automatically (without subscribing).
