Modding API ?

Postby Mikeloeven » 11 March 2016, 15:06

One of the things that determines the longevity of RTS games is most often support for mods and user generated content. while this game is still in early beta there exist many races and ship variations that have not yet been implemented as well as many different home-brew variations of BFG rules and game-play. Adding a toolkit and comprehensive modding support is a key to make this game viable in the long run.

Please help me change skirmish to be customisable. Its very important for PVE players.

Developers, could you please tell us your stance on Modding?

Do you...

Think mods are good and will give out mod tools? Like Dawn of War 1
Are indifferent on the situation as long as people don't mod DLCs in? Like Dawn of War 2
Wish to avoid all and any mods? Like World of Warcraft

Why is modding good for a game?

It lets your fans tailor the game a little to their taste.

Tindalos can not cater to one specific group, they need to make every buyer satisfied with the product. It is a very hard process. Its like making a car that is fast, efficient, cheap and safe all at once.

Modding is like tuning a car to be faster, safer, or more fuel efficient at the expense of other properties.

So when lore, balance, tabletop etc mods come out, they will make their niche players stay longer with the game and hopefully invest in the 3 planned DLCs :)

Would love to be able to mod, make the game more like tabletop, balance speeds, armor, turning, weapons, etc.
