Modding Slime Rancher

Postby Khade72 » Tue Jan 09, 2018 11:42 am

Hi Monomi and Slime Rancher Community,

I was wonder what the official word is on tools for creating mods on Slime Rancher. I'm aware that there used to be a mod tool called "BetterBuild" which is no longer functional due to significant game updates. Are there any modding tools provided by Monomi or any plans for this?

If no tools exist to date, is there any guidance that can be provided for manual mods? I'm an experienced game modder so I have familiarity here. I noticed there is a Plugins folder within the game directory so perhaps this could be used to load a Unity plugin?

Thank you for making such a great game to date. Any help would be appreciated!

I know at one point they had said they weren’t supporting it, but that was prior to the full release and I haven’t checked since if that changed. EmeraldPlays though is a decent source if your looking to have a starting point.
Same username as I have on discord. I do no damage challenges if you have ideas for those feel free to share

Do you mean EmeraldPlay, the person behind the original BetterBuild mod?

I didn't make that one, someone else did. And yes, I might be able to help.

That'd be great! What do you think my starting point should be? Am I on the right track with utilizing the Plugins folder? (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Slime Rancher\SlimeRancher_Data\Plugins)
