Unity Engine Plugin
Welcome to mod.io Unity Plugin. It allows game developers to easily control the browsing and installation of mod files in their games. It provides a C# interface built on the Unity Engine to connect to the mod.io API. We have a test environment available which offers developers a private sandbox to try the Unity Plugin out.
If you are a game developer, first step is to add mod support to your Unity game. Once mod support is up and running, create your games profile on mod.io, to get an API key and access to all functionality mod.io offers. Next, download the latest UnityPackage release and unpack it into your project, then head over to the GitHub Wiki and follow the guides to get it running within your game.
The mod.io Unity Plugin requires the functionality of two other open-source Unity plugins to run. These are included as libraries in the UnityPackage in the
Plugins directory, or in the repository under
- Json.Net for improved Json serialization. (GitHub Repo || Unity Asset Store Page)
- DotNetZip for Unity to zip and unzip transmitted files. (GitHub Repo)
Our Unity plugin is public and open source. Game developers are welcome to utilize it directly, to add support for mods in their games, or fork it for their games customized use. Want to make changes to our plugin? Submit a pull request with your recommended changes to be reviewed.
