    Mods are a way to edit the looks and behaviour of the game without breaking the original files, it will also ensure changes you make will not be undone by game updated since nothing in the my_content folder is touched by the updater.

    I'll be posting some tutorials here about how to mod different things.

    1. Creating a GUI Mod

    This is pretty much the easiest thing you can do.

    Go to your DoE folder

    Go into the game folder > media > materials > textures. You should be seeing something like this now:

    Right click the gui folder and copy it. Now go back to the DoE main folder, go into my_content and then into the mods folder. Right click and paste the gui folder in here.

    Now you can go into the my_content/mods/gui folder and edit any of the GUI textures with an image editor of your choice and you'll see your edits the next time you start the game.

    2. Retexturing an item

    This is basically the same as the GUI one. I got these antlers that I want to retexture.

    Go to your DoE folder, game > media > items, now you need to find the right item folder, in this case it's antler2 so I right click and copy that folder.

    Go to the my_content/mods folder and paste the item folder.

    Now go into the folder

    I have the gold version and we're not going to mess with the model or material so I need to delete the things I'm not going to edit.

    There, I deleted the things I'm not going to mess with and edited the texture. Now it should be working.

    Yep, it's working.

    3. Editing Furs and Markings

    This works pretty much exactly as the first example(GUI).

    Go to your game folder, media > materials > textures > player. Copy the fur and or markings folder and paste them into your my_content/mods folder, edit the things you want to change and then delete all the markings or furs from your mod folder that you are not going to edit.
