    Hey folks! Now that the game is out, I'm eager to start working on mods. Has anyone had success in unpacking and repacking the .dat files? Anyone find / make any useful tools?

      Not yet, and I'm not sure how much the developers are willing to support modding anything beyond campaigns/maps. I'd love to hear an official response though for when they want to allow us to start breaking the game :D

        I wonder as well. To be honest I was expecting more open file structure.

          Are you sure it's not just compressed? I could see it being encrypted though because they have DLC plans.

            Hopefully soon someone from the team will tell us something. This game is supposed to be modding friendly. :)

                  Hmm. Did we lose some posts? Manual edits, or was that a moderator?

                  If we're stepping on the toes of the dev team, I for one would like to know. I doubt anyone's intention here is to cause trouble. Just looking for ways to further explore this game.

                    Seems we definitely lost the posts with the screenshots and progress on modding tools.

                      Right, I also would love to know if this will be mod friendly, or maybe if there are certain plans to open it up after X days (for DLC, or what have you), or if there aren't plans to make it mod-friendly, so people should instead focus on making maps and campaigns.

                        From the official blog, under what's comming short term: "Modding is also coming soon and of course a PS4 version of the game is in the works."

                        What does it mean exactly, we can only guess until more info is shared.
