Title: Beta Branch Patch 0.23 - Workshop Mods
Post by: koonschi on May 21, 2019, 02:01:52 PM
Patch 00.23

Date: May 21st, 2019

Beta Branch Note: These changes are currently available on the beta branch. The beta branch is for testing experimental changes and for finding and fixing errors.

This is how you get access to the beta branch (USE AT YOUR OWN RISK):
Right-Click on Avorion in your Steam list, Properties -> Betas -> Select branch 'beta'.

Preamble
In this update we're introducing massive, massive changes to the asset loading system and the lua engine. We can't possibly test everything that could maybe go wrong, so please help us test and brace yourselves for more patches!

Even though these patchnotes might not look like much, a lot has been going on in the engines roots. This update is probably the one that we spent the most work on in the last 12 months.

Mods
"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."
Creating Mods
"Creating mods can be a complex process, so we spent weeks and wrote a lot of guides for all you modders:"
Using Mods on Dedicated Servers
Client
Server
Misc
Scripting API

"Oh boy have we some patchnotes for you guys! We're only listing the most important changes, you can find the rest in the Scripting API."
Gameplay
Bugfixes
Known Issues

"Sadly, some things cannot be modded yet, because they're too deeply rooted inside the game's core engine. We're working on making those things moddable in the future as well."

I'm so excited to see the mods coming out! Also... that bit where you can scrap turrets is a huge +.  Will make building turrets much more doable I think!

Why are Devs so adamant on deactivating achievements with mods?
The ones that just want to cheat them can still do it easily...
*sigh*

Anyway great thing to see mod ws support. Keep it up :)

So for some reason when I click on the mod tab in the main menu there is nothing there even though  i have subscribed to several mods for ships and stations in the steam workshop.  Any help on this would be awesome thanks.
