What exactly would the limitations be? I mean... there's got to be some sort of limitation, obviously. I'm sorry if my question is vague, but basically... what kind of games won't be possible?
Some games won't be vaguely possible.
So... No call of duty?
Dunno, but you can do Pong..

FYI source code here: https://github.com/cmartin99/TotalMinerMods/tree/master/ArcadeGames/Source



Do we get a video of TM pong now? :3

Could someone make Total Gear?





Also, Someone, Anyone. Please make Total Zork.

Would it be possible to create a TV mod? To have different channels and stuff (maybe broadcast camera feed onto a certain channel?) So for online play, there can be news stations by other players that players can watch? That would be pretty cool!

There are two modding options.

1. A mod that does everything via the games modding API.
2. A mod that does not.

Option 1 does not have support for animated textures (at this time).
Option 2 allows you to do practically anything, if you know how.


This is more or less the same thing as my LCD panel idea with an added function of being a CCTV monitor.

I'm so excited to see the things the community will create for this game with mods once it is released!

Question Time


Does (or will) the API support:
•Adding ores or other blocks to world generation
•Adding in HUD elements, (in the fashion of say the hotbar, or other various game HUD pieces)
•Adding script commands, and what would be feasible with it
•Adding loot to cave chest loot table
•Adding different types of random spawn chests with unique loot tables to the vanilla game
•Adding in world gen things like the caves that cave chests spawn in, or little pools of liquid for modded in liquids, or trees/other various flora, or structures like small buildings or castles

-----

Regarding the first item on the list. Say I want to add an ore, will I be able to have them spawn naturally? What if I want to add other stone types to spawn in layers like marble or granite do, but I don't want to remove any of the default stone layers? Can I do that? What about if I want a different kind of grass to spawn in along side normal grass, not patchy like if grassy stone and grass shaded are, sort of like maybe a... makeshift biome thing?

I've been wanting to learn C# so bad, because I want to make advanced mods rather than simple texture/stat XML swapping kind of stuff. Can anyone link me or direct me to a place that would be good to start learning, I keep trying to learn, but all websites start off too complex.

So these are some of the weapons I've created for my "Galactic Miner" mod! All I need to do is make and apply textures to the objects, and then test it once the game comes out! So excited for this! (These are all folders by the way, with the necessary files inside!
