    In order to edit or add code into the Zerahypt framework, you'll need some files.
    Most of these files are included with the zerahypt download.
    The recommended program to code & compile with is Visual Studio.

    Click here to download the required Initializer
    (Put this file in "%appdata%/Zerahypt/")

    Click here to download the required DLLs
    (Put the files in ".../Zerahypt/Zerahypt_Data/Mods/")

    Yeah, make sure the file isn't called Initializer.ini.txt
    It should be called Initializer.ini

    I downloaded visual studio community (the "free" version), and it gave me a one week trial. Of course, that was the week of my (internet free) vacation, and the trial is over, and it wants me to buy a license for $500. Wow, I knew MS is greedy as heck, but dam, that's a lot of money that I don't have... What did I do wrong?

    Just as an FYI, in case you can't get VS to work (I couldn't for some reason, I forget why), MonoDevelop works just fine (and has all of the syntax as a bonus).

    Ok... Basically, let me explain what just happened (15 minutes ago...) I tried to launch robocraft to go play for a while, and it causes my computer to BSOD. I cone back, and a whole bunch of stuff is corrupt, including my custom zerahypt stuff. What I am basically trying to do is create 2 new versions of the agrian executor cruiser: one that is on your 'team', and follows you around and fights for you (it also comes in when you get destroyed, the same way it does when a helirotor gets destroyed.), and can be summoned like the bothunter, and one that you can pilot. Yeah, it sounds crazy. And it was. I got the pilotable version to work, and of course, it is the version that gets corrupted the worst. Nothing was savable. Trying to load any of it causes a nasty crash, and the problem is, I forgot how I did it... I do know it was crazy hard though... Do you have any advice on how I can do it again, but maybe a wee bit simpler? This is awkward. All I know about the corruption is, all the stuff that got corrupted was in a separate partition of the HDD, with a different file system... I think robocraft somehow messed up the file system, because Windows did something to the drive when it restarted, but I don't remember what. Today is just one of those days that keeps getting worse... Sadly, I don't have any files to post or send to show you, because (I kid you not), the files self destructed. They got smaller and smaller until they simply disappeared. I don't even know what happened..

    Does that all make sense? (And I should probably move this to a new thread if I am going to be discussing modding and code...)

    It makes sense, wouldn't be the hardest to code. Which part do you exactly need with with? Also, what language were u looking to code this in?
    I can definitely help you create this mod, however it will require some input of your own aswell.

    Well, easy for you to say. I honestly stink at coding. I got started on the mod back in version 15 of zerahypt, so its been a long, hard road...
    And I'm going to need help with all of it, because I'm using MonoDevelop, and before I was using a tweaked version of Eclipse.
    As for coding language, whichever works best. I learn fast, and I have been using eclipse to make minecraft mods for myself for months. I taught myself to do that, actually.
    You would be willing to help me? That would be beyond amazing, and I would appreciate that more than I can say.

    Magiichan, lets take this conversation here.
