Plugin descriptions


Allows additional data to be saved to character, coordinate and scene cards. The cards are fully compatible with non-modded game, the additional data is lost in that case. This is used by sideloader and many other plugins to store used mod information.


Allows plugins to display on-screen messages.


Allows other plugins to intercept and modify assets as they are loaded. This is notibly used by sideloader for its core functionality.


Creates screenshots based on settings. Can create screenshots of much higher resolution than what the game is running at. It can make screen (F9 key) or character (F11 key) screenshots.


Loads mods packaged in .zip archives from the Mods directory without modifying the game files at all. You don't unzip them, just drag and drop to Mods folder in the game root.

It prevents mods from colliding with each other (i.e. 2 mods have same item IDs and can't coexist; sideloader automatically assigns correct IDs). It also makes it easy to disable/remove mods with no lasting effects on your game install (just remove the .zip, no game files are changed at any point).

More information and tutorial on sideloader-compatible mod creation.


Allows user to set values outside of the standard 0-100 range on all sliders in the editor. Type a value to unlock.
