    Please excuse me if I am being blind and this is posted somewhere. I'd like to make a mod, and I don't know how some of the stuff works.

    So, how do we format *.metadata files? Is it like the *.modinfo files?
      "name" : "modname",
      "path" : ".",
      "dependencies" : [ ],
      "metadata": {
        "author" : "me",
        "description" : "tl;dr",
        "version" : "",
        "support_url" : ""
    Or is it different?

      "author" : "Username",
      "description" : "Mod description here.",
      "friendlyName" : "Purchasable Pets",
      "link" : "",
      "name" : "p_Pets",
      "version" : "1.0"

    I thought the metadata files had to be called "_metadata"? I couldn't get them to be read any other way.

    Either .metadata or _metadata works.
