Cross Platform Mod API & SDK

https://mod.io

   (0 reviews)

mod.io is an cross platform mod service created by the team behind ModDB.com and IndieDB.com. It can be integrated in-game using the  REST API, C/C++ SDK or engine plugins (if available) Unity and Unreal Engine are ready to use with other engine plugins in development.

Features include:

  • Platform agnostic (support 1 click mod installs on Steam, Epic Games Store, Discord, GOG, itch.io and even consoles in the future)
  • Clientless (mod.io has no other dependencies and works behind the scenes in your game)
  • Embeddable web app UI, so you can integrate your mod community anywhere
  • Powerful search, filtering and tagging of mods
  • Moderation and reporting systems built-in

Steps to getting mod.io integrated:

  1. Add your game to our test environment or production
  2. Read our API documentation for an overview of how mod.io works
  3. Choose an Engine Plugin, API or SDK to integrate mod.io into your game and mod making tools
  4. Ready to launch? Add your game to our production environment then let's discuss promoting your release
  5. Need help? Our team is available on Discord to assist and our getting started guide has more information for you

 

 

Benefits of using mod.io:
mod.io offers the same core functionality as Steamworks Workshop (1 click mod installs in-game), plus mod hosting, moderation and all of the critical pieces needed. Where we differ is our approach to modding and the flexibility a REST API offers. For example: 

  • Our API is not dependent on a client or SDK, allowing you to run mod.io in many places such as your homepage and launchers
  • Designing a good mod browsing UI is hard, our plugins ship with a UI built in to save you a lot of effort and help your mods stand out
  • We don’t apply rules globally, so if you want to enable patronage, sales or other experimental features, reach out to discuss
  • Our platform is built by the super experienced ModDB.com team and is continually improving for your benefit
  • Your community can consume the mod.io API to build modding fan sites or discord bots if they want

Large studios and publishers:
A private white label option is available to license, if you want a fully featured mod-platform that you can control and host in-house. Contact us to discuss.

      Greetings, 
      Its almost 4 AM in here, i am foreigner who lives in south Korea, married and i have also a stable job. i live in Seoul, and i am looking for a serious group that willing to design and develop a game as a hobby. I am kinda dead serious about it. I made a game but its far form being finished, because lack of ideas and code lines.
      I am looking for group of friends who live in south Korea and are willing to sit down, have a coffee, discuss ideas, and start bringing these ideas to life. (Online, Offline, card or mobile) game. I am good with Unity3d, and a good painter and illustrator, furthermore experienced with WACOM tabs. 
       
      Many games started from a garage by a small groups of developers, and now they reached the sky with their dreams and ideas. Please contact me or comment here, if your passion fall in this direction.
      Here is couple of screenshots of the project i am working on. called "chronicles of SORFIA"

      Looking for a 2D artist to make with me a top-down game with cool features, guns, spells, and powerups. I'm a programmer, and I already made the code for the guns, different spells, powerups and basic mechanics like shooting and moving and stuff like that. I just don't have any assets to use so I'm looking for 1-2 2D artists, can be a pixel artist or anything that you want. Compensation will be 50% for you and 50% for me if we are only 2 and will be different if we are gonna be a trio, you are not working for me (or volunteering) we are a team. The only thing that I control and you not is the money, but you can argue with me and I will probably give you the amount that you think that you deserve. It doesn't have a name yet, we will decide about the name together. You can create guns with no coding because of a system that I created so you will also be able to create content for the game, besides ideas and art. I really need an artist so if you are interested please contact me in discord: #1615Cringey Boy
       
      I will leave a video to see the game and also the build to try and actually play the game that I have right now. I don't have any art so it looks bad (;
      https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Na3JKPBYXuUpxtP-lBUO-hIl0xO1ujSj?usp=sharing < this is the build, just download the folder called "Dungeon" and in there press on Dungeon.exe to open the game.
      Controls:
      1. Switch to the main gun
      2. Switch to the secondary gun
      Mouse Left Click. Shoot (you also aim with the mouse)
      R. Reload the gun that you are holding.
      E. Use main spell (currently, fireball which explodes and deals damage. And you also aim that with the mouse)
      Q. Use secondary spell (currently, heal aura which heals you pretty fast. You don't need to aim)
      (In the video there is no restart but in the build, there will be a restart button when you die)
