Outdated LoreBooks (Upbeat Giraffe)

Adds more lorebooks (codex books) to the game! And makes them craftable

  1. JellyBlade
    This mod was more of an experiment with the functionality of codex entries more than anything. But anyhow...

    This mod adds custom lorebooks to the game, and allows you to craft them via the new crafting station, the Lore Station.

    This mod also allows a modder to use the crafting station to create their own lore books, if they want.

    -Go check out Josh_The_Misanthrope's mod, Bookwyrm, which uses the Lorestation in it! It's way better than this mod, so go check it out!-

    How to Use
    1. Install mod.
    2. Craft Lore Station.
    3. Place Lore Station.
    4. Craft books.
    5. ???
    6. Profit!

    For Modders (Or people who want to add books by themselves)

    The process is a bit... confusing, but here you go.
    Step 1. Find a book you want to add in, or make your own (Make sure you can evenly space it out in the codex file)
    Step 2. Create a .codex and a .codexitem file (under codex>documents)
    Step 3. Fill in the details (Such as title, actual book content, etc)
    Step 4. Create a recipe for the book, and add "lorebook" to the groups
    Step 5. Craft your book!

    Notes: If the book has any quotations, be sure to remove them, as they interfere with everything.
    This is how your lorebook mod folder should look (If you made your own)
    codex>documents>lorebook.codex lorebook.codexitem

    Current Lorebooks Added by Mod

    Currently in the mod:
    Test Book by Myself, just a book to test the mod, kept in because why not?

    The Adventures of Geneva the Floran Part 1 and 2, by myself, because it's the only book I could think of at the time (didn't want to add a mod with empty content, now did I?)


    Accepted Permission:
    The Avali Lorebooks by RyuujinZERO (When they're done, of course :3)
