New to Distant worlds, Currently me and My Boyfriend Nick are working on a Modding tool for this Game. Right now we are in the designing phase and Have already started programing of the tool and had some nice success. Basically The tool Should be able to load any per-existing mod for Distant Worlds shadows and allow for quick editing.
The tool will make it easier to Make Quick Mods, with less errors. Making it virtually automated. All the while making sure that it will run with parameters of the game. The intent is to allow even greater amount people access to modding the game quickly and virtually error free. Also making sure every thing you need to make a mod is up date and will work. We where shocked no one had done this already. So we have taken up the mantle for this and in the months to come we hope to release it to the community and also several mods made from it. Any suggestions on what you'd like to see in this tool will be considered. This will take a little bit of time to get together. But we like to hear from modders on see what they like to see in this tool. But We have some what of an idea, of some of the tools that will go into this program. We also like to hear suggestions on a tool name. Please keep comments on subject and either me or Nick will answer any questions that are asked.
**** I Will use this tread to Keep you up date on How the development is going, Issues We are Running into, None so far, keep your fingers crossed. We are currently using the Modders manual as our template For making this tool. So rest assure if it says it can be Done We will figure out how to make that happen. While making it as easy as possible For Any one to try modding. This is a huge under taking and will Take time to do. But We are devoted to making this happen. As of this Up date, We are Populating All the drop Down Menus and, Checking Our Work. Please Understand This Huge Task, and only two People doing this in our spare time. If you Have any questions Please Fell Free to ask. As We check the forum When we need a coding break and Don't fell Like Typing. I also want to Note This tool will be free To everyone and That once It is finish We will Make it Open source So you can even tweak the source yourself. Thanks for taking the time to read this and Keep Cheking in to see how its going and giving me something to read When i need a break from Coding.*****
