Staxel Reporter – Issue #6
Hey all! This issue of the Staxel Reporter focuses on the modding side of Staxel.
Since the beginning stages of development, modding has always been an important part of Staxel. We really wanted to make it as easy and accessible as possible for everyone so that creating a mod and getting it into the game would be just as easy for people with no experience as it is for people who have been modding games for years.
After the release of Seedling Edition earlier this year we can already tell that it’s going in the right direction and we’ve seen some amazing custom content from you all. From stylish hairstyles to flowing river tiles, new clothing styles and even an impressive new playable species, people everywhere have been letting their creativity flow and it has been so exciting to see everything that you’re coming up with.
If you still haven’t given it a try then there’s nothing to be afraid of, it’s super easy to get started. We have our own modding guide blog.playstaxel.com/creating-mods/ which will give you a nice understanding of the basic modding techniques. You can also have a read through the Modding wiki at http://wiki.playstaxel.com/Modding. This wiki can be edited by anyone so it’s a good place to start if you’re looking for the most up-to-date information.
Lastly, why not head over to the forums where you can find some tips and guides in the Modding section, you can also take a look at some of the fantastic mods that the forum members have been creating.
This week we’ll be showing you the ‘Vocaloid Hair Mod’. This mod was created by community member DeamonHunter (@Deamonhunter11) and adds 24 new hairstyles to the game!
Each hairstyle is very well crafted, and for those of you interested in how they’re made or perhaps want to make your own but not sure how to, the creator of this mod uploaded a video of them creating one of the hairstyles. You can check the video out here.
Here are a few of my favourite hairstyles from this mod:
You can download the mod from this forum thread. All the information on installing the mod is described in the original post so you shouldn’t have any problems setting it up.
DeamonHunter is one of many awesome modders in our community. If you want to get more involved with the Staxel community you should check out our forums! If you do sign up, don’t forget to introduce yourself in the welcome section!
