Want to start modding? Great! Start reading these guides to get you started. These guides have been split into several chapters, to guide you through each step. Use this index page to quickly jump to each chapter.
These guides are currently being rewritten by multiple authors, if pieces of previous guides have been used, the original author(s) (if known) is/are mentioned.
If you're interested in installing guides have a look at the following guides:
- Installing mods from Trovesaurus (WIP)
- Installing mods from Steam Workshop
- Installing mods using a modloader (WIP)
The modding community in Trove is meant for those who are creative and love to change or improve existing models, vfx or ui pieces. Lets start with the Trove modding Manifesto
|Additional Do's||Additional Don'ts|
|Mod because you have a great idea for a mount||Mod for credits or fame|
|Ask for feedback||Ignore peoples opinions on your mod|
Your end goal
Create something because you have a great idea and want to share it with the community. Even with lots of downloads and workshop subscriptions it might not end up in-game and thats fine! Embrace the people that are subscribed and love your mod!
