Title: Modding prerequisites (Visual Studio 2019)
Post by: ai_enabled on April 30, 2018, 02:25:36 am
You can develop mods by using Client or Server, but we suggest to use CryoFall Editor as it including both Client and Server in a single executable (and some other awesome developer features as well)!
If you own the game on Steam you can download CryoFall Editor from Steam (https://steamcommunity.com/app/829590/discussions/5/1812044473314225973/).
(If you have an atomictorch.com account and own the game you can acquire the Steam key from My Games and Items page (https://atomictorch.com/Account/MyItems) and then activate it in Steam and follow the link above to install CryoFall Editor from Steam)


After that, you can open the game solution file with VS2019. It's located in <game folder>/Core/Core.cpk/.


A few important notes:

If you're intending to make just a customized game server (custom rates, etc) and don't want to produce any mods, please follow this guide (scroll to end) (http://wiki.atomictorch.com/CryoFall/Server/Setup).

Regards!

If you have an atomictorch.com account and own the game you could download CryoFall Editor from My Games and Items page (https://atomictorch.com/Account/MyItems).

But i do not have download link for the editor in my Atomic Torch account (I buy the game some years ago)

@PnYMaT, sorry for the late reply. You can get the game Steam key from your account "my games and items" page and activate in Steam. Then you can install CryoFall Editor from Steam https://steamcommunity.com/app/829590/discussions/5/1812044473314225973/

Hi, i have the Steam key, but i boycott Steam for many reasons. I buy my games (when it is possible) directly on editor web site. First they (you) win more money (no commission to pay at Steam) and i avoid DRM.

If i lost internet, i can install my game and play it. With steam, i must have internet to install my games, i need internet to play my games, i dislike this.

It will wonderfull if you put back editor on Atomic Torch account, like the game itself.

Many thanks for reading me and understand my point of view:)

Ps: sorry for my english, i'am french ^^

You can download CryoFall Editor now from this link https://atomictorch.com/Account/MyItems
However, it would be a problem for us to keep it updated to the latest version as it's not automated unlike Steam. Don't hesitate to remind us reuploading the latest version when necessary.

Regards!

I should follow these steps even to make a custom map in the cryofall editor? Additionally I am having a difficult time finding instructions on how to package a mod, I understand the file extension, am I repackaging the entire visual studio project? Do you have any information regarding this?

To create a custom map you don't need to follow these instructions. Just download CryoFall Editor and you're ready to start.
Regarding the mod packing, please refer to this Steam guide https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1707742469

OK awesome, after I create the custom map I simply follow the packing instructions then is what it seems, correct?

@PlayerMaybKnown, correct. As an example of a mod with a map, you can download an existing MPK with a map, e.g. https://forums.atomictorch.com/index.php?topic=1935.0 Please note that it must be backed as a ZIP archive without compression as explained in this comprehensive community guide https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1707742469

Hi, it is possible to update the Editor to the last version on the website ?

And congratulations for your game, it's great :)

Many thanks.

So I'd like to learn modding with this. I'd basically be starting from scratch though. Would I need to learn a programming language to do it for this game?
