NOTE: The modding system is under heavy development. APIs are expected to change, which may break existing mods! Feel free to update any information on this wiki that is out of date.

For those wanting to learn about how to develop mods, the Eco ModKit wiki is a great place to start.

It contains a link to download the modkit, as well as tutorials on how to make different types of mods. Read through each tutorial to learn how to use the Eco ModKit.

* #mod-help for issues with mods
* #mod-tutorials for links to tutorials
