Mod Example: Modifying Assets
This is a very simple mod that shows how to replace assets through mods.
About[edit | edit source]
This mod provides no scripts but a few assets. The assets provided here will shadow (or replace) the vanilla ones that are used by the game.

Note: Even though only textures are replaced in this case, you can replace nearly all assets in the game, including music, plan xml files, sfx files and so on.

serverSideOnly = falseThis mod only introduces visual changes, that the server doesn't know anything about.
clientSideOnly = trueThis mod only introduces visual aesthetics changes that the server doesn't know (and doesn't have to know) about.
saveGameAltering = falseThe mod doesn't add any new scripts or assets to the game, so it doesn't alter save games in a way that they might become corrupted once the mod is no longer active. Client side only mods never alter save games, since saves are a server-only thing.
